Calming Paint Colors for Your Bedroom—Make Your Sleep Space a True Sanctuary!

15 Gorgeous Grey Paint Colors to Use in Your Bedroom

BY KATINA BENIARIS, CountryLiving.com

Thinking of changing up your bedroom paint? These paint color options promise a peaceful, calming space to rest. I think this article is an excellent guide to grey paint ideas.

When it comes to decorating your bedroom, neutral colors are classics for a reason. Warm beiges can create a cozy and comfortable sleeping sanctuary, while stark whites can help your art and other colorful bedroom decor stand out. If you know you want to use one of the best neutral paint colors for painting your bedroom, but are stuck somewhere between white and beige, grey may be the answer.

We are strong believers that grey is one of the best bedroom paint colors. There are so many different shades and hues of grey that there’s sure to be one that matches your aesthetic. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites in this gallery to help you start your search. Use dark grey paint to create a statement wall in a lofted space, or try a blue-hued grey for a calming spa-like bedroom. You can even use grey paint on your bedroom floor for a bright alternative wood that doesn’t require you to worry about scuff marks.

Once you’ve found your ideal shade of grey, finish off your bedroom with an accent color or two to make it pop. Check out these paint colors that go with grey to get started.
