This is my favorite way to do grey bathroom designs -- subtle and classic with just a touch of contemporary flare to keep things current. I think that, as an industry, the design world is trying to decide if we like grey or white bathroom ideas better. Grey has been touted as the "new white"or the "new neutral" for years now, but I am not sure that I agree. In the right shade and the right setting, it can certainly create a neutral backdrop for a lot of designs. But lately I have been seeing too bold and too dark shades of grey. I much prefer a very soft and understated grey and white bathroom like this one because I find the color palette and the materials to be very calming. Something about the stone tile looks soft and elegant to me, rather than harsh and contemporary like a lot of the materials on the market now. That paired with the soft cream walls makes for a lovely look.
You would think that after years of installing grey bathroom designs that I would grow tired of the look, but I find that my love for them continues to grow as I find new ways of implementing this style. I think that gray bathroom ideas have a place in just about every home because they are such versatile and classic looks that certainly stand the test of time. I have seen grey used as the palette for ultra modern homes or as the main color in super traditional designs -- it is all about how you apply the shade. I think that grey works fantastic for small bathroom designs because it is quite neutral without being boring, just as it works as an elegant accent color in large master suites like this one. It is really the "jack of all trades" of interior palettes.
Grey bathroom designs offer a fantastic neutral canvas to anybody that wants to renovate or redecorate their space, but is not quite sure of the style direction that they want to go long term. Grey bathroom tiles are neutral enough that you can pair a ton of different accent colors with them and they will not go out of style quickly (especially if you choose a contemporary design like this). You could easily do a pop of navy or chartreuse green to bring some personality to this space, or you could leave it as is for a tranquil spa vibe. If you are having trouble selecting materials or a color scheme, I would definitely opt for a simple gray tile bathroom like this because I believe that you just cannot go wrong.
This gorgeous master bath is such a stunning example of how you can elevate ordinary trends in grey bathroom designs into something absolutely extraordinary with a little bit of creativity and an eye for style. I love how they turned your standard grey bathroom ideas on their head by doing the trim in a subtle pewter shade, then the walls a crisp white rather than the opposite (that we usually see). I think that it is such an elegant touch that makes a very contemporary space feel much more traditional. This is definitely one of my favorite bathroom designs of all time, and certainly the most refined marble bath that I have seen in the photo galleries on here. I look forward to finding an application for this design somewhere in my own life.
I am trying to transition our master away from all grey bathroom designs to something whiter, brighter, and more cheerful to help me start my day on a good foot. We definitely jumped on board the style train when grey bathrooms decorating ideas were all the rage and did all grey walls, a grey vanity, and marble tile to top it all off. Don't get me wrong, it is definitely a beautiful space, however I am just wanting something more neutral and more cheerful. Something about the grey paint on the walls is kind of depressing to me when I walk in and certainly affects my mood. I was thinking to mimic this design and paint our vanity and walls white to offset some of the grey in the marble. I still love our marble, I just want to change up the bathroom decor that surrounds it.
I know that a lot of people are very into grey bathroom designs these days, but it is just not my thing. My favorite style of decor (especially in bathrooms) is much more like this simplistic all white vibe with a few rustic or organic touches. I love natural woods, metal, and crisp white walls because it creates a very simple and zen look that immediately promotes relaxation. Gray bathroom decor, on the other hand, tends to be a little too contemporary for my personal liking and is definitely not as warm and welcoming (at least the majority of the designs that I have seen on here). I think that the best bathroom designs are those that make you want to spend time in the space and help to begin your day with the right tone -- this home would definitely do that for me.
