Gray Bathroom Color Patterns

Gray is a simple color to match with other tones because of its many shades.  


If you are trying to brighten your gray bathroom, use a softer gray paint with a bit of gloss to it. If you want to bring the tone down in the bathroom, lean towards a gray shade that is closer to black.

Gray Bathroom Accents Colors

Because gray is a neutral, earth tone paint color, it can be dulling when used exclusively. Accent colors like grass green, midnight black, sun yellow or rose pink can make the gray color theme and gray bathroom materials pop.

Gray Bathroom Tile Ideas

Gray bathroom tile comes in a variety of styles and designs for the wall or floor. 


Even the most solid gray bathroom floor tile has varying shades of gray throughout. Mixed gray bathroom wall bathroom tiles may have pockets of other colors.

Gray Bathroom Wallpaper
