When you’re looking to change your bedroom space up a little, one color scheme that often gets disregarded is grey. Rightly or wrongly, it’s just not a hugely popular choice. We feel this is a bit of a mistake, however. Grey, especially when accompanied with another, more electric color, can often be brought to life, as the darker color works as the perfect foil for a shade with a lot more energy. We’ve compiled a list of the 64 best grey bedroom ideas to provide inspiration and excitement to your decorating experience. Enjoy!
1. Brickwork Beauty
This beautiful bedroom with the cool bed and grey exposed brick walls makes for a fresh bedroom that not only looks modern but also really stylish. The bed is being held up by legs in the middle of the frame which give it a look like it’s floating only add to the exciting look of the room. What a cool room.
2. 50 Types of Grey
This monochromatic room has so many different shades of grey that it’s hard to have imagined this room looking great away from the picture, but what we’re seeing only goes to prove how well it does indeed go. A lovely looking, comfortable bed is the centerpiece of this great, grey masterpiece. Bonus points the for artwork above the bed and the really great rug at the foot of it.

3. Laidback Loft
This very simple, stripped back loft renovation bedroom couldn’t get much more bare, but this is massively to the advantage of the room. Making the bed and the windows the focal point of the room, you don’t notice that there’s very little furniture present. A smooth, curved looking bed makes the whole room look a lot more relaxing, adding to the vibe.
4. Purple is the New Grey
With the rest of the room making waves as a beautiful, sleek-looking grey number, the addition of the purpled bed to the room improves the look ten-fold. The lighting fixtures, too, are something smart making this room look super plush for a relatively decent price. Shout out to the beautiful bed stands each side of the bed.
5. Cozy Little Shack
This cozy looking hideaway is a large room with all of the features compacted into a small room, giving the vibe of the area a lovely, cozy feel. With quite an arty feel to it, this is something you can imagine in an apartment in New York or San Francisco. With a modern take on a retro feel, there’s few people who wouldn’t love to call this room home.
6. Classroom Chic
Giving off the feel of an old English classroom, this next piece of work centres mainly around the solid wood floor and wooden accessories while the grey back-wall plays backdrop to a stylish, if unusual combo. What I like about the furniture is the legs they’re held by; metal piping that give the whole ensemble a faux-upcycling feel to it. Big fan.
7. Wood for Good
Another wooden bedroom, which uses the walls to compliment it, as opposed to being the main feature. This spacious bedroom which has a lovely double bed, looks like it would fit very well in a Mediterranean holiday home. Add on the private bathroom and balcony and you’ve got yourself a fantastic looking holiday apartment.
8. Rustic Real Estate
What I love the most about this room is the rustic look it has and how well it works for the whole room, and still leaves it looking classy and stylish, the placement of the bed, which is moved away from the window is unusual, and adds even more spectacle to this light purple and white rustic room.
9. Purple Bedding and Plant Pots
A queen sized bed, a set of drawers and two plants is clearly all you need in the modern bedroom, as this simplistic room is evidence of. Although there’s not much to this room, you get a real sense of modern beauty from it, with the lined curtains covering a balcony looking out onto a city view. Spectacular.
10. Bike-Shack Bedroom
This has to be one of the coolest bedrooms I’ve seen in my time, and it’s really easy to see why. Part bike shack, part bedroom, this is such a trendy take on a fairly common style of room. Other than the space to hang a bike on the wall, this bedroom has fresh exposed bricking on the wall, and a small table stacked with various trinkets. As close to a garage as any bedroom is ever going to look.
11. Purple for A Princess
This picture, which offers us very little to see by way of the bedroom, shows us why if the rest of the room matches the luxurious purple bedding, you’re in for a treat. A large frame with an unusually large headboard, this bed looks fit for a princess, with the purple floral rug beneath the foot of the bed looking equally as smart as the rest of the room we can see.
12. Dark & Beautiful
A dark and moody looking room, this screams out modern hotel room every day of the week. The slim bed looks beautiful, while the mirror combined with the lighting fixture form the impression of a grand, suite-like room. The back wall, although a little dark, is still smart, working well with the mix of shades around the room.

13. Awesome Art Deco
This awesome art deco style room finds it’s attraction in the fact that it doesn’t look unattainable to you or I. It’s a fairly standard looking room but it’s a room that looks delightful all of the same. With a lot going on, from the comfy bed to the many ornaments around the room, this classy room is a great idea for your home bedroom.
14. Laid-back Living
This room is probably the simplest, most stripped-back room on the list today, and it really does look like a bare room with merely a bed and a mirror. And even that mirror isn’t hanging up. But that’s what makes this room so cool. It’s got the feel of a stripped back and relaxed decor that is becoming popular in conjunction with the popular rustic look. And this fits right into that category.
15. Office in a Bedroom
What we’ve got here looks to be part office, part bedroom, with the chair and desk towards to left-hand side of the room serving as somewhere to get a bit of work done. I really love the large walk-in wardrobe across the other side of the room, which looks absolutely perfect for a clothes lover who needs plenty of space.
16. Lush and Light
This room is another one with an awesome walk-in wardrobe that covers across the whole of the wall. Great for the fashion conscious, this room is also decorated in an array of light colours and relaxing shades. The bed in the middle of the room is a lovely style, marooned like a comfortable little island. With a light built into the headboard, we’re looking at one swanky pad.
17. African Influence
This modern bedroom has a chilled out vibe with an African influence coming from the furniture around the outside of the room. The room itself, full of light greys and two hanging lights has a beautiful style. The wooden flooring is also a real nice feature of the room, supporting a floating bed in the centre.
18. Hotel-like Home
This is a really fantastic, laid-back style room, with the bed being the main feature, surrounded by the pair of ornaments towards each side that look like tree branches. The feel of this room is very much like that of a hotel room, and this is in no way an insult. The solid, standard style double bed in the centre of the room looks as though you could sleep in it for days.
19. Funky and Fresh
When you talk of stylish, unique rooms, this is certainly one of them. The grey color with a tinge of blue works perfectly, making the room almost look as though it’s under the sea. It’s a really fashionable style of room, and the double-toned features – the bed, the drawer and the sink – all work really well with the backdrop of a light grey wall.
20. Gorgeous Greys
The style of this room and the color combinations seem to be extremely popular right now, with a multitude of layers of grey on top of each other working really well. This fairly basic but attractive room is brought to life by the large light on the ceiling which illuminates the whole room. Elegant and sophisticated, this room would be a sure-fire hit for anybody.
21. Inspired by The Outdoors
This room looks very much like it’s inspired by the outdoors, with the room looking like it’s been set up like a garden shed, but in the best way possible! The wood panelling on the external walls and the flooring give the room a really rural feel, while the bed takes up little room, which gives this whole area an outhouse or poolroom feel.
22. Perfectly Plain
There’s not much going on in this room, but this gives it a relaxing vibe and that’s why I like it. The beautiful cream leather bed surrounded by two lamp fittings is as stipped back and tame as you like. The wooden flooring is another feature that harks across the the rustic trend. There looks like there is plenty of room for additional features if you would so desire.
Grey and Yellow Bedroom Ideas
23. A Quaint Quality
This bedroom is a beautiful and uplifting style, with the many traditional-looking features almost giving the room the feel of being on a country prairie, and it’s easy to imagine looking outside and viewing the vast fields of countryside. A cute room that could easily fit as a children’s bedroom, this is an understated yet beautiful bedroom.
24. A Bold Bedroom
What I love about this room is the kick it gives you when you first take a look. There many storage areas in this room are emphasised by the larger areas having a yellow backdrop, which is also complimented by the yellow bed. Just think how much this brightly coloured room would affect your mood once you woke up in the morning for work – you would practically be jumping for joy before 9am.
25. Fantastic French
Another artist’s-impression style room that takes much inspiration from French decor than it does from anything else. The grand bed, with large headboard is the fantastic centrepiece to this room, while light grey furnishings only add to the cultured look of this room. I would love to see the style of the rest of the house, as this room is gorgeous.
26. No Need to be Scared of the Dark
This is such a classic Halloween style room, but it’s funky and fantastic and I would just love to sleep in here. The matching wavy lines between the bed-spread and the rug on the floor offer a Twilight Zone feel the room, and the grand old headboard in the background only adds to the haunted house feel to this whole room. As do the pumpkins…
27. Lemon Zest Living
There’s very little to say on this room that doesn’t spring out at you as soon as you look. The slightly off-lemon coating on the back wall works incredibly well contrasting against the darker, murkier yellow carpet. The low bed-frame is stylish and the cover on the duvet is simple yet stylish, this is low-key one of the coolest pictures on this list.
28. It Doesn’t Get Cuter Than This
The first thing I think of when I look at this room is that it looks like a giant birthday cake decoration. And I mean that as a compliment. Cute, with solid bright colours, this room is like a doll’s house come to life. It’s hard to imagine your son or daughter not wanting to sleep in this classic bedroom set-up.
29. A View of the Town
We’re looking at another really trendy, really cool looking apartment block room with cool furnishing (those turquoise chairs, anyone?) and plenty of space for relaxing and winding down. The bed in the centre of the room just in front of the large window would certainly take a little getting used to, but that’s something I would take for this expensive-looking bachelor pad.
30. Yellow Studio
This studio apartment bedroom is a basic look at a stylish color combo. The yellow bedspread and lamp stand out in the backdrop of the grey wall, but these two colours to together really well. As for the rest of the room? Well, there’s not much else. The seat is stylish, giving this room a 60’s vibe and works equally well with the color scheme.
Grey and White Bedroom Ideas
31. Grey and White Delight
The design for this room has a beautiful, wooden floor and rug combination with the large, comfortable bed in the centre being accompanied by the two windows either side, allowing natural light to reflect from the stylish grey and white color combo. I love the mirror to the left that has a light beaming from the top.
32. Straight Edge Style
The straight edges that surround each part of this design make for an interesting addition. Making the room look part cartoon – see the outline of each character in FOX show, Archer – the effect injects the bed, furnishings and backwall with something a lot more interesting than a standard bedroom. The headboard which stretches to the roof is a funky style and further accentuates the black outlines on white furnishings.
33. Spacious and Superb
This is one of the boldest designs on the list, and mainly because of those two large windows each side of the bed. Not too dissimilar in style to the previous picture, this spacious room keeps features to the bare minimum so that the dark bold outline-style doesn’t become too overwhelming. Situated on the shores of the beach, this awesome flat would be the envy of almost everybody.
34. Basically Basic
You rarely see a room that looks so spacious, so bare yet also really stylish. This attic room with a concrete floor barely has any features, yet the roof beams and solo white finish makes this seem a lot more stylish that it sounds when describing it. Full wall wardrobes are almost miss-able across the room from the bed.
35. Modern Master Bedroom
The main feature in this modern master bedroom is the large mirror that engulfs the whole of behind the bed. Reflecting the rest of the room, making it all look a little bigger, is a great tip for future homeowners. The rest of the grey scheme is awesome, and adds a quite chilled out vibe to the room. The two lamps either side of the bed add extra light to a stylish room.
36. Bed of the Future
This room has two really awesome features. Firstly, there’s the view from the window, which seems to look across the seaside from the ground floor, giving a sense of the type of building – and budget – you would be looking at here. Secondly there is the bed, which looks like something from futuristic cartoon the Jetsons. Sleek, smooth and rounded, this space age style room is perfect for the modern person.
Grey and Silver Bedroom Ideas
37. Blast from the Past
The bed we’re seeing here is old in style, harking back to a more grand, sophisticated time. The color scheme – black and silver – adds a more modern twist on the design. Customisable with the pillows, this would suit a dark and mysterious looking bedroom to boot. Very much reminds me of a classy hotel room or an expensive suite. Very cool.
38. Classic and Sassy
This modern luxury bedroom main feature is the bed, mixing a real lovely grey and silver bedspread complimented by the smart lamp across the way. The backboard is leather proving once more than this room is one classy, sassy bedroom.
Grey and Red Bedroom Ideas
39. Very Much Vintage
This spectacular vintage room with delightful double bed has so much character it’s basically bursting at the seams. The red and grey works really well because neither overpowers the other, while the clock and four light-shades the work their way across the room further add to this powerfully vintage bedroom.
40. Functional and Funky
This splendid red and grey room is smart, tidy and most of all: looks totally functional. A lot of the bedrooms look beautiful to look at but you would find it hard to live there, but not this one. This has everything you would need, in a color scheme that would suit almost anyone. The ace floating bed, the cupboard space and the natural light all make this room perfect for use.
41. Red All Over the Room
This lovely room, brought to life by the red chair and bed, has a couple of great features to it. Firstly, the deep red color brings the rest of the room to life, but secondly, the wooden features that have been upcycled from boxes add extra character to the room and probably make the room what it is. Modern, fresh but also unique.
42. Red All Over the Room Part 2
Not too dissimilar to the room we previously looked at, the main difference here being that this looks like the ‘lived in’ version of the room. We see the chair moved into the centre of the room where there’s more space, while the wood headboard and shelves towards the back of the room have been decorated and look even more homely than before.
43. Sleek and Sexy
Although there’s not much to go off here, you can see for yourself that this room has a sleek and sexy vibe to it. The red really gives off a romantic vibe, while the pictures on the wall and the smooth, curved features make for a beautiful and intriguing look.
44. Show Home Style
Because again, like a few of these pictures before, there’s very little by the way of furnishing in the room, you get the feel of it being somewhat like a show home. But this doesn’t stop it from being beautiful and make all of us jealous. I love the way the small window shelves are sat behind the bed, allowing for ornaments or lighting the bring that wall to life.
Light Grey and Pink Bedroom Ideas
45. Steel Grey Greatness
The room we have here is luxurious but is also brought to life with the little spice that is the pink throw over the bed. The framed mirrors and the pictures on the left side of the photo add a lovely personal touch to this bedroom and make it look all the more attainable in the process.
46. Bubble-Gum Bedroom
What an awesome looking bedroom. It’s also one of the brightest, most fun rooms on the list too. Each pink item adds a real flavour to the room, giving off a bubble-gum vibe to the solid grey backdrop that might otherwise look a little dark. The bed looks super comfortable and the cool clock in the background adds a little more character again to a really exciting room.
47. Lovely Loft Conversion
This room – which is a modern loft conversion – is a plethora of pink, violet and grey that transform an otherwise average spot into something a lot more modern and fun. As you look across the room you find that the three colours compliment each other really well, while the base color grey keeps the room from becoming too bright and too adventurous.
48. A Tasty Transformation
The fresh look of this room and the additional pink elements take this from a boring, modern bedroom to something with a little more sophistication and style. With only two pink elements playing off the light grey, this room never becomes too overbearing, all the while still staying fun.
49. Breakfast in Bed and a Book
This picture literally allows you to imagine how it will look to take some quality time to yourself to relax, take some breakfast in bed and kick back with some reading. Another light pink color lends itself to breaking up the otherwise standard white and grey mixture beautifully.
50. Homey Haven
This lovely home room really has the feel of a lived in, cozy family home, with a great big thick bed and a beautiful interior. There’s a lot to be said for a homey, low-key bedroom, and this vibe certainly makes for something a little more comfortable looking than a lot of the high-fashion styles that we’ve looked at here today.
Blue and Grey Bedroom Ideas
51. Perfect for a Teen
This room, with the array of colours going on, is perfect for a youngster and a teenager growing in school. With the personal office space and an area for homework coupled with plenty of storage, this room is perfect for the youngster in your life.
52. Lofty Plans
This loft conversion is such a cool looking room. The first thing you notice in this room is the open-plan balcony that this bed is situation on, and the rest of the decor that plays on this very rustic approach. The lights hanging down and the beams across the roof give it a stylish feel, and I feel this would be perfect for the teenager looking to gain a little of their own personal space.
53. Baby Blue Dreams
What’s really fantastic about this room is that the colour-coding is very basic – mainly grey – but is then split up nicely by the baby blue bedding and wooden cabinet. What I like here is the fact that this blue throw can be taken from the bed and exchanged with another colour, adding another element and style to the room, while still keeping everything looking and feeling similar.
54. A Sea of Tranquillity
Like nothing much I’ve seen before, this room takes on a certain sea of tranquillity with the blue back wall features which add a very certain level of relaxation to the room. The cute bedside tables either side of this double bed are unique and have a great style about them, and the bed itself further plays into the relaxing theme with the blue pillows and throw.
55. Teenage Trendsetter
Your teenage kid will be quite the trendsetter with this style, with the contemporary metal work throughout the room again giving this a warehouse feel, while still looking a little neater and tidy than steampunk style.
56. Queen Bed, Queen Style
Find yourself your very own palace with this regal, traditional looking blue bedroom. The grand double bed and footrest at the end of the bed only add to the royal feel to this room, and I really don’t think it would look out of place in a royal hall. Finishing the bed off with the bed curtains, you can get practicality, privacy and plushness a plenty with this delightful piece of furnishing.
57. A Modern Bedroom
This bedroom is almost the classic modern bedroom: cool, stylish, fresh and stripped back bare. The stripped lights above the double bed are exciting, while the small tableside area next to the mirror is just what you need for getting ready in the morning. With the addition of the wardrobes towards the side of the room, there really is little else you need.
Grey Orange Bedroom Ideas
58. Cozy Orange
This cool, cozy room is a mixture of calming grey and wild, zesty and exciting orange to create a modern couple’s bedroom. The awesome looking bed is covered by a huge duvet sprawling onto the orange rug. A door to the left of the picture goes to your own private ensuite bathroom, making it perfect for a couple looking to get their own private time.
59. Smart and Sophisticated
This smart room merges orange and light colours with a neat, tidy and sensible room to create another great modern masterpiece. With a seat in the far corner looking out onto the street below, this bedroom set is perfect for someone who doesn’t want to commit to anything too out-there and crazy.

60. Uniquely Understated
While plenty of the rooms we’ve taken a look at today are plush, fancy and the bedrooms of our dreams, there’s a lot to be said for the modern, standard bedroom. With lots of awesome furniture, this bedroom fits that bill. Fresh, understated and perfect for a university student or someone studying, this looks like it could be perfect for writing an essay or some last-minute research.
61. Big Orange
The tall radiator, the stylish bed and the great vibrancy the plant bring to the room all pale in comparison to the pure energy of the orange wall behind the bed. A great set of lighting features support what will be a wonderfully bright master bedroom, with windows providing natural light when the orange doesn’t quite take your fancy.
62. Simply Spacious
Orange is another theme here, where the bed and the bookshelves take centre stage to inject this otherwise grey room with some much-needed jazz. The space in this room is great, while the beautifully light wooden flooring provides another color to break up the dark backdrop.
63. Modern (Royal) Family
Another hugely grand room, with the bedding centrepiece complimented by the huge, orange curtain at the head of the bed. This room really is beautiful, and mixes the traditional regal look of a royal bedroom with a modern twist that screams eccentricity. Finer touches to this room include the beautiful fur rug and a fantastic view of the grounds outdoors.
64. Regal Lite
The final picture gives no let up on the posh, regal look we’ve seen a few times here. Although not as grand as the last picture, this is more of a regal-lite approach, while the focus of this room is the hanging light from the roof. Plush and beautiful, this room is a real royal treat.
