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…MORE 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…MORE 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…MORE 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…MORE 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.

Custom Gray Cabinet
This bathroom’s feature is obviously the large, custom-made cabinet, painted in a neutral, mid-shade grey, with traditional silver hardware. Made for Courteney of Creekline House, this cabinet is meant for a large, organized family.
Note the wonderful marble tile installed on the bias as a backsplash, which adds lots of movement and energy to the space. Top it off with a granite countertop, and your elegant family bathroom is complete.

Gray Bathroom With Vibrant Tile Work
You will be surprised to hear that the tile work for this bathroom is actually striped marble, an uncommon yet stunning material. It adds tons of movement to the space.
The slightly warm gray used here also suits the golden and brown accents really well, as you can see with the picture frames, light fixture and decorative elements in the cupboard.

Mint Green And Gray Spa Bathroom
Combining medium gray with light, powdery shades likes this mint green here makes for a soft, spa-like ambiance. The gray shade of the vanity is repeated in the picture frame above the tub, and mint green patterned towels extend the color inside the cabinets.
Note the dashes of neutral via the wicker basket and flowers strewn around the bathroom, as well as the brushed metal hardware for a soft, inviting look.

Sophisticated Gray Boys’ Bathroom
This boys’ bathroom remodel by Sarah Langtry features two grays: Sherwin Williams Tinsmith as the overall wall color, and SW Grays Harbor as the accent color around the hooks to the right.
The neutral beige accents in the tub tile and the wicker basket make this space look sophisticated and warm, but still masculine enough for two boys. The whale wall art adds a touch of nautical that’s perfect for this space.

Farmhouse Style Gray Bathroom
Gray is also a great color for softer, farmhouse-style bathrooms. This space uses Farrow & Ball Lamp Room Gray, a medium gray with warm undertones.
It’s those warm undertones that make the latticework cupboard and the pale yellow floor molding work so well together.

Gray Vintage Scandinavian Bathroom
Gray isn’t always about cool urban minimalism or modern styles. It works really well with more vintage, organic looks, as in this beautiful Scandinavian-style bathroom.
Gray and off-white work together to bring a sense of faded elegance, and the subway tile in brick pattern visually separate the shower space from the rest. The stark white floor makes for a wonderful contrast.
