As overused neutrals like beige go out of style, grey in the bathroom has been creeping up in popularity. Its versatility and modernity, as well as its many different shades, make for a colour that can be used in hundreds of ways – making it fantastic for any bathroom. No matter what type of home you live in, or what style of bathroom you’re going for during your next bathroom renovation, grey is a good idea.

This blog will cover each style of bathroom and demonstrate how grey can be turned into something very exciting, stylistically. So whether you’ll repaint or install grey wall panels, there truly is something for everyone with the colour grey.

The nautical bathroom

Nautical or water-themed bathrooms will always be in fashion, but rather than making your bathroom an ode to the 90s with blue walls and wave motifs, take elements of the great outdoors and bring them inside.

These grey distressed oak wall panels are ideal. Choose to paint the walls white, using the wall panels for a feature wall behind your dual sinks or walk-in shower. Go for seagrass or wicker accessories in plant pots, bathmats or laundry baskets in order to create a stunning, Scandinavian inspired bathroom that brings the nautical bathroom into the 21st century.

The Victorian bathroom

Patterned tiles have been popular for a while now, and especially in Victorian or other period homes, they look great as they compliment the home’s age. In the Victorian age, patterned tiles lined hallway floors, garden paths and fireplace surrounds. Today, a lot of these original features might have disappeared from your home, but why not add a nod to the Victorian era with these grey patterned wall panels from Swish Marbrex.

These wall panels will also be easier to install and maintain than patterned tiles. Pair them with white painted wooden floors, jewel tone accessories and plenty of plants.

The rustic bathroom

If your home is more country cottage than ultra-modern, this mosaic bathroom cladding will be ideal, helping you to bring a rustic feel to any home – whilst keeping things modern. Install the bathroom wall cladding behind your dual sinks or bath to create a feature wall.

Style with wooden worktops and a top mounted Belfast sink, complemented by floral or botanical wall art to bring a feel of the traditional bathroom into the 21st century.

The ultra-modern bathroom

It’s always been a popular option to keep things sleek and modern in the home, and especially in the bathroom, it’s a great way to achieve a unified look. Bathrooms large and small will benefit from minimal grey wall panels.

Add mirrors over the sink to make the most of the space, and you could also install the latest technologies to make your bathroom experience the best that it can be. Create a smart bathroom at home with surround sound or a smart mirror.

The loft-style bathroom

Whether you live in a converted warehouse or in a Victorian townhouse, the loft style bathroom is ideal for those wanting to retain some character in their home whilst stepping forward into a modern look. These grey brick wall panels are ideal on one or two walls of the room – they’re easier to install than original bricks are to clean up, and have a textured finish meaning nobody will know the difference.

Accessorise the bathroom with black hardware and a huge rainfall shower head, to bring the creative glamour of a New York loft to your humble bathroom.

The chic bathroom

The light grey shade of the Alba Bathroom Wall Panels is warm enough to make your bathroom feel like a welcoming space. Timeless and sophisticated, marble is a fantastic addition to any bathroom and is perfect for any style home. Although a large marble panel would cost thousands to install, these marble wall panels provide a fantastic alternative to the budget-conscious.

Complement it with fresh flowers, plush bathmats and choose accessories in rose gold or bronze to add a feminine touch.
