Tricks and Tips For Designing Your Grey Bathroom
Many of our clients that have fallen for the Scandinavian influence, becoming entranced with the grey palette for their interior projects. Be it for living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens or bathrooms. However, our worldly neighbours usually have larger rooms. The British climate mixed with our smaller bathrooms can make it tricky to get this trend right.
To simplify the world of ‘choosing your grey’, the tone is generally based in two colours – brown and blue. Bluer greys, such as silvers tend to feel cooler and work well with dark shades like black, along with textures in brushed chrome. Whereas, browner greys such as taupe and mink, often lend themselves to warmer pairings like wood effects and nickel. So, if your bathroom doesn’t find much sunlight during the day, a warmer tone might help lift that a little. Or, if you’re on the search for a cave-like retreat, then perhaps the cooler temperature is where you’ll find your match.
Nowadays, the debate between couples over their Pinterest boards that we are sent, lies in deciding between these two (not fifty!) shades of grey.
Knowing how to make either palette work is key to helping you decide which works for your lifestyle, interior styling preferences and the mood you want to capture. Essentially either tone can create the perfect bathroom, providing it works for you. This is where using a Designer such as ourselves can really add value and transform your bathroom renovation project – being able to visualise the differences in 3D renders will help make these key decisions when it comes to tile colours, furniture textures and tap finishes.
