A bedroom is an incredible space to communicate your personality

Aside from furniture, accessories, and theme, one way to show your individuality and style is through the color of your bedroom. Looking for the best color for your room may be challenging. Because you are out of your bedroom most of the day, you should consider how your bedroom will look first upon waking up in the morning and later when you are about to sleep at night. For a spacious and airy-looking bedroom, go for a light shade of gray. For your bedroom to give off a snug, secure vibe, go for something dark. If you want, however, to enjoy the best of what both a light and a dark color would offer, go for something neutral. Being halfway between black and white, gray is the perfect color for your bedroom.

Gray will look great as a color for any part of your home, but the versatility it gives a bedroom is undeniable. Regardless of your bedroom’s decor style, a shade of gray will work with it well. A gray bedroom provides tranquility. For rooms that do not have too much natural light, a glossy light gray will make the room airier and lighter. If you want sophistication and elegance, gray in dark and cool shades can give you that. The color also works well with different shades, giving your bedroom the mood that you want it to have.

Grays And Their Different Virtual Temperature

When it comes to virtual temperature, grays can be classified into three: warm, cool, and true.

When a room has plenty of natural light, cool grays are ideal as they create a cosmopolitan appeal and make tight bedrooms look more spacious. Examples of cool grays are coastal gray, warm pewter, and blue gray. A blue gray bedroom looks elegant and, at the same time, promotes cocooning. Blue gray also goes along with various colors, making decorating a breeze.

If you plan to use your bedroom more at night or if it faces north, warm grays are perfect. Warm grays look lovely when paired with natural leather or wood as they create a relaxing ambiance. Examples of warm grays are pebble shore, misty mountain, and repose gray. Repose gray is “greige” or gray with beige undertones. A repose gray bedroom is ideal if you are looking for softness or warmth. The shade is perfect if you are looking for a gray with a hint of beige. Pair it with trims in crisp white and your bedroom will feel modernly fresh. A repose gray bedroom also looks elegant with accents of gray-toned blue.

True gray is simply a mix of black and white. While other shades of gray have a hint of other colors in them, a true gray has none, so when used as paint colors on your bedroom wall, no other color will show through. Examples of true gray are polished pebble, silver chain, and Stonington gray. Stonington gray complements a predominantly blue bedroom.

Choosing The Right Tone Of Gray For Your Bedroom

Any shade of gray is sure to make your bedroom look great, but if you are looking for your gray bedroom to have a particular mood or appeal, certain shades can provide that. Grays come in different hues – they come in shades of blue, green pink, and so on, making it a complex color. Generally, the shades can be classified as light, mid-tone, or dark, each having its effect.

Light grays, such as dove gray, are great for giving a small, dark bedroom an illusion of more space and air. They are also great if you are after a minimalist look but find white too simple. Gravity gray is an example of light gray. With its blue undertones, your bedroom can have a touch of silver. It goes well blue or white. Also, grays in powder and pastel shades turn a bedroom into a relaxing space as warm tones make you feel comfortable. Mid-tone grays give an unpretentious background for streamlined silhouettes and industrial metals. Examples of these grays are fog and pearl.

A dark-gray bedroom has a modern appeal, especially when paired with metal or glass accessories. For a gray master bedroom mainly designed for leisure time, a deep charcoal gray is recommended. For added depth to your bedroom ship’s anchor is a shade of dark gray that can make your walls seem endless. Being a versatile color, gray can evoke different kinds of ambiance, from simple to luxurious, when different shades are combined together. The possibilities are endless.

How To Decorate A Gray Bedroom

You need to highlight a piece of furnishing to break the monotony in a gray bedroom. Instead of choosing several, small pieces of items, highlight one significant piece in your bedroom for greater impact. For example, a black and red chandelier will provide a stark contrast, making you appreciate the shade even more.

Light is essential in a gray bedroom, so ensure that there is at least one natural light source, but more is always better. Windows should have white curtains or linen panels that let the light in. Add elements that allow the natural light to bounce in the room, such as mirrors, clear-glass tables, steel frames, or glossy furniture in light shades. Chandeliers, floor or table lamps, and other lighting fixtures provide light at night.

Play around with texture in a gray bedroom with fabrics. The texture of fabrics can change the appeal of a bedroom. They can give body and depth when they provide contrast to the shade of gray, so choose those that really stand out and have character, like satin, velvet, or chenille. You cal also add texture to your gray bedroom by adding woven blinds, throw pillows with vibrant patterns, colorful rugs, or quilted duvets, which negate the cooling properties of gray.

Art pieces also provide an excellent contrast to gray bedroom walls, aside from preventing your bedroom from looking dull. Hang framed paintings and photographs, or display sculptures on top of tables. Grays, particularly manatee, arsenic, and chad gray, serve as a perfect backdrop for these pieces.

Gray And Other Colors

Choose gray bedroom color schemes to inspire you any time of the day. You can compliment gray with another shade, either as added patterns or accent features.

A gray and white bedroom looks serene and clean. However, when not well thought out, the scheme may look lifeless. Ensure that there are plenty of strong but not too overwhelming patterns to make a gray and white bedroom more playful. You can have these patterns on rugs or curtains to create movement in an otherwise monochromatic room.

A gray and pink bedroom looks modern and fresh once you find the right balance between the two colors, which depends on your taste. When going with gray as the predominant color, pink adds a touch of fun. A gray bedroom with traditional furniture may look too conventional, but with pink area rugs and bed covers, it can look ultra-modern. If the room is predominantly pink, add gray bedroom furniture, like a wardrobe or a chest of drawers. A pink and gray bedroom can come in a whole range of color combinations, so find one where you will feel most comfortable.

A gray and navy bedroom is also inviting, making you spend more time in there. The relaxing shade of gray gains more depth with navy blue. If gray is the main color of your bedroom, incorporate navy as an accent. Go with navy blue bedding and nightstands. If navy is the color of your walls, have a gray bedroom bench or other furniture and accessories. A gray bedroom set will also look charming with navy-painted walls.

Final Tips

Other hues go great with gray when used sparingly. A teal and gray bedroom is simple and modern. Teal wall decors or pillows brighten up space with dark gray walls. Depending on the shade of purple, a purple and gray bedroom can look either subtle or dramatic. Because purple may be too intense, using it only as an accent, like on the bedding, is advised. The same goes for a yellow and gray bedroom. Just have yellow on accent walls or bed covers.

Color is an essential factor in designing your bedroom, but with different shades of color available today, you may find it challenging to choose the one right one. Aside from the look, you also have to think about the comfort that your room will give to you. Neutral colors are always safe. Gray is a perfect example.

The color gray is known to reduce stress, helping you relax after an exhausting day. With the right shade, it can add visual space to your room. Also, as a neutral color, you can combine with other colors for a more dynamic-looking bedroom. However, gray, particularly darker shades of it, can be gloomy and cause anxiety. Gray can also be uninteresting on its own. Thus, you have to consider the right tone and temperature, other colors to use, and the right furniture and accessories. Think of all of these as you decorate your gray bedroom.
