How to Decorate a Gray Bedroom (or a Grey Bedroom)

Decorate a Grey Bedroom (or a Gray Bedroom)
To many people, Gray sounds dreary. But a Gray bedroom does not have to be dreary at all. Depending on what colors you add, and how you accessorize, Gray bedrooms can be very sophisticated and elegant and dramatic, or soothing and calm. 

Gray is very popular among teenage boys and girls who like the grunge look. And many of them are striving for a sophisticated look or a cool look in a neutral color like Gray.

So here on this page you can find all of the Gray stuff for your Gray bedroom, including Grey bedding of all kinds, Gray comforters, Gray bedspreads, Gray quilts, Gray throw pillows, Grey curtains, Gray rugs, and even Gray lamps.

Now unless you are someone who likes a room that is neutral and plain you are probably going to want to add in one or more colors to make all the Gray "pop." Blue, Purple, Green, Yellow, Pink, and the most popular one of all, White are all colors that people turn to again and again for pairing with Gray in their bedrooms.

Tips for Decorating a Gray Bedroom

Since the bed takes up so much of the room visually, and the curtains too, if you have windows, it's good to start with those as your focal point. Then you can accessorize around those. 

Some people like to do this by designing the way nature does, light sky, dark earth. Others like a plain monotone all over and just use colors to make the room pop. Which ever way you decide to go, unless you really want the dungeon look, it's best to add a color or two as an accent.

Also, even though you would think Gray would be just one color, there are actually different shades of Gray, so be sure to try all your Gray bedroom items against each other to be sure all the Greys are compatible.

Another way to design your bedroom: Pick an artwork you like and use it to choose your color scheme. Choose 3 of the colors in the art and use those as your colors to decorate.

Try not to use more than 3 main colors. It make the room more dizzy and less restful for sleeping. White does not count for this computation. White makes colors pop. But I only use 2 main colors and White anyway. This is the room you rest in. One last idea, use more than one shade of Gray, to give the room extra visual texture.

All these basically solid Gray comforters make a wonderful backdrop to add other colors to. If you still want all Gray, consider adding Silver to add some shine and texture to the room. Further down the page I show some examples of Silver accessories for you.

I would use White curtains or draperies or even very light Gray curtains. With this comforter set as a starter you have already started to decorate a Gray bedroom in style!

Gray Throw Pillows

Toss pillows are a wonderful way to spice up a dull or lifeless room. To make Gray bedrooms pop, add some colorful pillows. 

A note about Silver. If you are going for solid Gray, consider adding in some Silver to give the room some shine. It will still function as an all Gray bedroom, but the Silver adds just enough contrast to elevate the Gray from dull to elegant. Easy way to decorate a Gray bedroom!

Gray Sheet Sets

Gray sheets are nice with or without a Gray bedding set because of how nice they blend with a variety of colors and designs. Here are some Gray sheet sets to consider when you are shopping in this color. 

Decorating a Gray bedroom means attention to all the details, even the sheets. That way if you don't make the bed (*gasp*, just kidding, who has time to make the bed every day?) your room will still be stylish.

Gray Bedroom Rugs

A rug can add depth and personality to a room, be sure to consider a rug for the floor when you design your bedroom. AMAZING what a rug can do to a room, Gray is a popular color to work with because of how neutral it is. And because it hides dirt. True story.

Gray Lamps

I think that a Silver lamp like one of these is actually the best way to go with a Gray bedroom. A Silver lamp adds that luster and different texture to the room that offsets the Gray bedding you've chosen. It's the same color as Gray but with shine! One of the best Grey bedrooms decor ideas!
