Creating the perfect grey bathroom starts from denouncing the often drab, dull and generally negative connotations the idea of them can initially convey. Then it’s time to focus on the positives, such as its neutral palette and the fantastic colour matching opportunities this presents. In other words, deciding to go grey needn’t be a drawback.
We explore the positive aesthetic possibilities that grey bathroom ideas present and how you can implement them to bring new life into your space.
THINK OF GREY BATHROOMS AS A BLANK CANVAS
Indeed, one of the advantages of a grey bathroom is its ability to blend with an array of colour schemes. This adaptability enables a blank canvas mentality that can be liberating from an interior design perspective.
Whether warm, neutral or cool, the neutral qualities of grey open up some intriguing creative possibilities to play with. Maintaining an open mind as you implement grey bathroom ideas will ensure tremendous success.
ADD WARMTH THROUGH WOOD
The best way to dispel the cold perceptions that a grey bathroom can present is to add warmth right away. This can be done in several ways by introducing wood into your scheme and letting the beauty of its colour and texture flow naturally.
And adding wood needn’t be overwhelming. Just a touch can work wonders to influence the ambience of your space. Consider the benefits of wooden cabinetry knobs or cabinetry holders like those from our characterful Hegman Collection.
Alternatively, if you want a more significant introduction of warmth, a wooden floor or wooden countertops would establish the theme immediately and neutralise any cold and clinical sensations.
KNOW WHICH COLOURS WILL CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR GREY BATHROOM STYLE
Due to being a neutral colour, one of the hallmarks of a grey bathroom scheme is its versatility with other colours. This includes other neutrals like complementing a predominately white bathroom scheme, for instance, or broadening your aesthetic horizons by branching out with vivid colours such as yellow, green, navy or teal, amongst others that pair perfectly.
There are also many shades of grey, so knowing that you can combine a selection of them to create layering in your bathroom would certainly be advantageous. For instance, you could match your tiled flooring with your vanity countertop but choose a different shade of grey for your cabinetry and walls. This would help to dispel a more monochromatic look.
SELECTING THE PERFECT BATHROOM VANITY
The bathroom vanity is one of the significant focal points in any bathroom. However, pairing one with a grey bathroom can prove challenging if you’re uncertain about which finishes work best for your scheme.
Fortunately, ABI has an elegant range of bathroom vanities that allow you to customise the tops and sides in an enriching range of finishes to give your grey bathroom the life it needs. Choose from our Arki Freestanding Vanities, which come in grey bathroom compatible colours such as black oak, matte white, shaker matte white, VJ matte white, or pure oak.
Alternatively, we have an equally beautiful range of wall hung vanities. These include the smart Addison, the elegant Rylan, and the resourceful Kyah. These bathroom vanities come in an identical array of finishes that would complement your grey bathroom perfectly.
CONSIDER TAPWARE THAT TRANSFORMS
An excellent grey bathroom idea is to select stunning tapware that stands out against the grey or blends in more subtly. By surpassing conventional chrome for colour tapware that highlights your fixtures, you can significantly influence the mood in your space.
ABI has a broad selection of bathroom tapware designs in a range of finishes that can subtly underpin your grey bathroom or bring out its potential. Choose from colours like brushed brass, brushed copper, brushed gunmetal or matte black and white to bring greater definition to your scheme.
