Even though most people associate yellow and gray with styles that are strictly ‘modern‘, that is far from the truth. Gray and yellow can work equally well in bathrooms that range from styles such as eclectic and farmhouse to minimal and industrial! Those wanting to usher in a farmhouse, rustic, eclectic or even traditional style can use yellow in a far more exuberant and energetic fashion than homeowners seeking to shape a serene, contemporary bathroom. A balance between two lighter hues of gray and yellow is also a great way to create a polished, modern bathroom that looks even more splendid when filled with ample natural light.
Research has shown that using more of dark colors in a small bathroom makes it look and feel smaller but the reverse is the case when you add lighter colors. If the cabinetry in the bathroom is brown, you can visually enlarge the space by going for tiles that are of light color, may be the same as the bathtub and also have brown designs. Ensure that the tiles you opt for are larger in size as this helps to make the space look larger.
The past few seasons have seen plenty of attention being showered on gray and its many shades. When it comes to neutrals, nothing currently beats the charisma and popularity of gray. This obviously means more and more of us are starting to use the color in places where white was otherwise the gold standard. Contemporary bathrooms present one such setting, and instead of the simple white backdrop, homeowners are now starting to experiment with gray at its diverse best.
