How to Make a Grey Bedroom feel warm and relaxing

Grey is a neutral colour for your bedroom decor and our ideas will help you bring out the mood you want in your room so that your space is a modern and comfortable sanctuary. See below for our best grey bedroom ideas.

Start with the bed

When decorating a grey bedroom, firstly you need to find a bed that suits your taste and style. This will become the focal point of your bedroom so that you can furnish it to match.

Light grey bedding is a subtle way of introducing lighter shades to your grey bedroom decor. Rather than crisp white sheets, opt for pale grey duvets just like this Holly Willoughby set at Dunelm.

Snuggly textures like this fleece duvet set create a warm and cozy space in your grey bedroom bedroom. 

Choose the right shade of grey for your personality

Depending on how to express yourself in your room can depend on the shade of grey you paint your walls. Dark grey, for example, is a neutral shade like black or white and can create a warmer look to your room, especially with how you like it. On the other hand, light or pastel grey can be considered more feminine in nature and is more subtle and will affect what decor pieces and colours you choose to furnish your home.

Light grey bedroom designs, like this example above, showcases a mixture of texture and colours. With light grey walls and matching throw – to a dark grey bed frame for a bold statement. We love the shimmer of metallics on the pillows and the reflective bedside table to add a touch of glam to the overall look. 

Mix and match with grey furniture for your bedroom

The beauty of grey bedroom decor is that when done properly, you can mix and match it for a unique style. Combine dark and light grey furniture sets to allow for contrasting if you don’t like one-tone interiors.

You can play around with more than the colour of your walls when opting for a modern grey bedroom . From grey wall panelling to wallpaper, artwork and wall decor – there’s no limit on what you can do to your bedroom walls. Here are some ideas below. Additionally, small grey themed bedrooms that utilise the walls as decor allow for your style to shine through without looking packed in.

For depth and texture add wall panelling to your bedroom, which is easy to do and also a great way to decorate your wall as a feature. We love this idea for small bedrooms to make the space feel stylish without having to put up artwork or shelving to fill the wall.

If you love texture but you’re not keen on the idea of wall panelling, opt for a grey wallpaper that has a pattern for the same effect. This gorgeous wave pattern wallpaper creates that layer of depth while also adding glam with the metallic glitter detailing.

Subtle artwork like black and white photos in simple frames can really make a small grey themed bedroom pop without the need of vibrant colours, which can sometimes take away the classy look of a room. We adore this simple gallery wall idea for the bedroom by Poster Store, which utilises black and white artwork perfectly.
