5. Dimension When it comes to design, vertical dimension, or the available space from floor to ceiling, is key. You can place curtains closer to the ceiling to make a room look much larger than it would with window treatments covering just your windows. When it comes to designing a closet, take advantage of all vertical space so that you not only get more storage, but you also open up the area to create the illusion of more square footage.

While it may seem like a gray color scheme would be too dark or too bland to create an inviting place to unwind, this couldn’t be further from the truth. With a bit of finesse, a gray bedroom can be elegant and moody or light and airy. While you browse gray bedroom ideas, consider the sorts of color schemes and decor you want to incorporate in your own space.

Gray Bedroom Furniture

The focal point of any bedroom should be the bed, and gray is a great color to use to help you drift off to sleep. If you’re in need of gray bedding ideas, consider using a linen duvet cover or adding in a chunky throw blanket. A gray headboard can go with a number of different bedroom styles, and can be dressed up or down to fit the space. While a tall, tufted headboard would make a statement, a lower headboard is perfect for minimalist spaces. And when paired with gray, pink doesn’t have to be relegated to kids’ rooms. For a chic pink and gray bedroom, pair an upholstered gray bed frame with pink bedding or a beautiful pink rug.

In particular, gray-finished wooden bedroom furniture can look very elegant. For a sophisticated bedroom look, go with a matching gray bedroom set, complete with a bed frame, nightstand and dresser. For modern bedrooms, consider adding in a gray ottoman or Scandinavian-designed rocking chair. Finally, to complement a more traditional space, you might spring for a dark gray armchair to put in the corner.

Gray Bedroom Color Schemes

To keep your bedroom from looking dull and drab, pair a few different shades of gray together or add in other complementary colors. Gray goes with just about anything, although muted tones tend to look best. For a classic look, go with a gray and white bedroom; for more of a playful modern style, go with a gray and yellow bedroom. Your wall color will ultimately set the tone for the room, so choose accordingly. Gray bedroom walls can make the room feel cozier and more contained, while going with white walls and gray furniture will make the space feel a bit airier.

If you’re choosing a paint for the bedroom, consider that blue grays look beautiful with traditional or Scandinavian style rooms, while dark grays can work especially well in modern or contemporary rooms. In traditional or farmhouse bedrooms, it can look beautiful to install white shiplap or beadboard on the bottom half of the walls, and paint the upper half gray.

Gray Bedroom Decor

While you browse gray bedroom decorations, think texture, contrasting materials and splashes of color. Metallic finishes like copper, silver and gold all work as excellent foils to the darkness of gray and will help liven up the room. Shaggy rugs like those made of sheepskin can add layers of texture and warmth to any bedroom. And elegant color contrasts, like in a teal and gray bedroom, can really make the room sing.
