The beach is right outside this house in Marina del Rey, California, which is why designer Daleet Spector added large windows to let in more light and incorporated subtle color with the tile and sink to keep the space clean and bright.

Grey Bathroom Walls Pattern Play

This spa-inspired New Jersey-based gray bathroom by Colleen Bashaw isn’t afraid of a little pattern play. Cole & Son’s Palm Leaves wallpaper creates a tropical vibe, without overwhelming the space with color.

Like a powder room in a 1920s grand hotel, this vintage-style gray bathroom by designer Carrie Hayden features thick slabs of honed Calacatta marble for backsplashes and counters, which creates an old-world European feeling.

A pair of vintage gilt-and-crystal sconces pair beautifully with Lefroy Brooks bath fittings and the gray accents in the Calcacatta marble. “I wanted the faucet to look reclaimed, old and elegant, like the sconces,” designer Carrie Hayden says.

Gray grass cloth in this Los Angeles powder room, designed by Christos Prevezanos, sets off a vintage mirror and sconces, and the harlequin pattern of the floor tiles lends geometric punch.

Vessel Sinkxc

Designer Phoebe Howard elevates an everyday ritual with this Carrara marble basin. The faucet emerges from a stone-mosaic dado in a spectrum of watery hues.

Moroccan Tiles

Designer Cathy Kincaid used Farrow & Ball’s Old White paint on the walls to mimic the same muted tone as Moroccan Cross and Star tiles by Ann Sacks in the bath of this desert home.

Parisian Inspiration

Designer Betty Lou Phillips chose a luxurious French-inspired theme for the decoration of her bathroom. Gleaming silver tones enhance this guest bath’s old-world elegance.

Spanish Style

The bathroom floor in this Spanish-style California house is made of Ojai river rock. “It’s so strong, you could build a Hyatt Regency on it,” designer Kelley McDowell says. She designed the shower door in the style of a metal casement window.

Soft Beach-Style Gray Bathroom

If you are looking for a soft, understated and traditional look for your bathroom, pale grey is the perfect shade. You can match it with windswept beiges, navy blues and soft gold.

Notice the retro faucet in brushed nickel by Kingston Brass, which is perfect for that traditional touch. Choose the finish that suits your color scheme the best.

Sexy Gray Master Bathroom

This smaller but still comfortable bathroom comes to us from Ange of The Blooming Hydrangea, and is a perfect example of how gray can be sexy and adult, too.

As the post details, the marble-imitation porcelain floors are from Sovereign Stone, and the wall color is Urbane Bronze by Sherwin Williams.

The choice of wall art is the perfect finishing touch to this gender-neutral (perfect for couples!) and comfortable gray bathroom.

Happy Gray And Yellow Bathroom

Gray is the perfect companion to any color you like. This gray-yellow combination bathroom shows you just how well gray can work with bright shades.

The gray moderates happy yellow (too much of it can be strident) and adds elegance to this master bathroom for a couple. Neither too feminine or masculine, both members find joy in this space.

The cushions on the window seat are an especially good find!

Minimalist Gray Bathroom With Freestanding Tub

If you are a lover of contemporary, minimalist design, gray is a shade of choice when it comes to contrasting elements in your space.

This bathroom features Benjamin Moore’s Coventry Gray, a soft, light gray that works well in well-lit spaces, contrasted against much darker grays (like the stone tile) and white.

Also note the gray cover on the freestanding tub, which helps to blend this feature into the rest of the bathroom.

Gray Marble Feature In Traditional Bathroom

The tile inset feature in bathrooms is really popular these days, and here’s another great example of that trend. The small marble tile inserted within a large slate tile floor lengthens the space and provides a nice focal point.

This traditional bathroom features a light gray-green wall at the back for contrast with the white ceiling and vanity wall. The boat and Roman shade gives the whole a slightly nautical feel, suitable for a cabin on the beach.

Gray Subway Tile Bathroom

Add contrast to white walls with a gray subway tile with lots of variations—as in this example. Of particular interest is how the tile was extended around the mirror for extra visual punch.

The whole looks classic and elegant, with a quartz countertop that matches the backsplash tile really well. Brushed nickel hardware finish the look and soften up the design.

All Gray Feminine Master Bathroom

Gray doesn’t need to feel stark or bland. Add a whimsical wallpaper, and you can change the whole look in one swoop.

A wet room-style shower with a clear wall make the room look larger, and the clever stool adds some modern flair to an otherwise traditional look. The narrow sink with side faucet also saves a ton of space.

Note the patterned roman shade—it shows that you can juxtapose patterns without them clashing.

Sweet Gray Guest Bathroom

This DIY bathroom remodel from LiveLoveDIY is just the sweetest thing, and it’s gray! More precisely, the owner here used Benjamin Moore’s Chelsea Gray, an elegant and understated gray that avoids being too heavy.

The touches of color via the wall art and flowers add some joy and flair. But nothing compares to that beautiful filigreed frame mirror, which is really the centrepiece here. In a room that’s otherwise pretty minimal, the mirror adds all the visual interest and decorative spark you’ll ever need.

Modern Dark Gray Bathroom

Gray isn’t all about light and fluffy. You can also use it for darker, moodier, more modern styles. The charcoal gray cabinet and back wall (that you can see in the mirror) add a sense of intimacy and modernity to this master bathroom.

The whole is lightened up with marble floors and countertops, a frameless mirror, and modern sconce lighting. Seems like the perfect space for a relaxing evening after a long week.

Contemporary Gray Bathroom With Cathedral Windows

It seems like this bathroom space was meant for a freestanding tub right under the cathedral-style windows. Add some contrasting tile to mark the tub area (and what a beautiful choice it is), and you have a beautiful contemporary bathroom.

The wall color is Sherwin Williams’ Mindful Gray, a soft warm gray that brings up the veins in the marble floor.

Note the beautiful candelabra-style lighting fixtures, which really add to the whole “cathedral” effect.

Dark Gray Tiny Bathroom

This dark gray bathroom shows that darker shades can still work in smaller spaces. By keeping the bottom half white, this bathroom’s owner avoids the claustrophobic look that dark colors can bring to smaller rooms.

The wall color is Rock Gray by Benjamin Moore. It’s a classic and elegant neutral gray with no warmth or coolness to it—just pure gray. It works great to highlight the different shades of the tile floor.

Contemporary Gray Bathroom With Glass Tile Wall

Everything about this bathroom screams “contemporary” From the stark geometric shapes to the minimal hardware and lack of flourish in the decor, this is really all about lines and simplicity.

But one thing that does add a bit of transparency and fun is the glass tile mosaic, which is full of energy and movement. The round wall light fixture and round product bottles also help soften the whole.

Gray Bathroom With Marble Backsplash

Traditional, elegant and timeless: this is what the combination of marble countertop and backsplash, tile floor, and gray wall provide.

This particular bathroom, featuring Benjamin Moore’s warm Rockport Gray, as well as a custom vanity, is perfect for traditionalists at heart. A dark wicker basket and a traditional rug add texture and softness to the whole, which contrast with the sometimes cold look of marble.

Gray Bathroom With Honeycomb Backsplash

This gorgeous vanity space, brought to you by Kylie M Interiors, features a unique look: the honeycomb backsplash marble tile.

The mid-gray cabinets contrast with the veined quartz countertop and marble backsplash, whose lighter shade light up the room. Notice how the square features—sinks, mirrors and light fixtures—balance with the round cabinet hardware.

Overall, a lovely gray bathroom with lots of movement added from the shape and size of the backsplash tile wall, which serves as a great focal point.

Traditional Bathroom With Contrasting Gray And Black

There’s something quite stunning about this bathroom, and most of it comes from the contrast between cool gray walls, white tub, and black marble countertop. This space is a study in shades of gray.

The antique brass lighting fixtures and bathtub hardware add needed warmth and color to something that would otherwise look a bit stark and cold. Notice how the floor’s shade stands in the middle, between the light wall and the dark vanity, lighting up the whole.

Cool Traditional Gray Bathroom

Compared to the previous space, this bathroom is all light and openness. There is enough space for a double vanity topped by a marble counter, and large, minimalistic marble tiles on the floor.

The wall color is Benjamin Moore’s Pigeon Gray, a nice satured cool gray that works as a neutral with pretty much anything. In this case, the designer decided to keep it as the main color, and to use white, yellow and dark gray as contrasts.

The light fixture adds soft curves to the mostly square-shaped decor, too!

Large Gray Master Bathroom

Although the walls looks blue in this photo, other pictures of this remodel by Kelly of the Lilypad Cottage show the predominance of gray in this beautiful master bathroom remodel.

The shade of the vanity, for example, is replicated on the stone surrounding the tub. And marble, marble everywhere: this is how you make gray work, by playing with different shades and providing both white and dark gray to contrast.

And touches of color appear everywhere: fuschia, green, blue and yellow all make appearances to spruce up the look.

Neutral Accents In a Gray Bathroom

This particular photo shows that neutral accents work particularly well in bathrooms dominated by white and gray. The wall features Valspar Paints’ Polar Star color, categorized in “cool white” but still on the gray side.

But what really makes the look here is the medium tone wood stool (by Eames) which adds softness and warmth to the cool surroundings.

Elegant And Warm Master Bathroom

This is another beautiful example of using Benjamin Moore’s warm Rockport Gray in an elegant master bathroom.

The beige tile and countertop bring out the warmth of the paint, and the slanted placement of the freestanding tub is a clever way to make this space more energetic and visually interesting. Note how the outside doors’ warm wood shade fit perfectly with the lighter colors in the bathroom itself.
