Cool Grey With Blue Undertones

South-facing rooms can be a joy to decorate as the steady stream of white light means these rooms suit grey colours in almost any shade. With the benefit of being filled with sunlight throughout most of the day, cool greys and blue undertones tend to work best as they contrast the warmer tones, bringing a sense of calmness while also giving your walls more depth and offering a modern, clean look.

Warm Grey Paint Shades

An Understated Mid-Grey

North-facing rooms already have a blue tinge of light coming in during the day and so cool greys can enforce a clinical mood in these settings. These rooms benefit better from warmer grey colours with yellow paint or creamy beige undertones which have the ability to make the space feel cosy. Greys with creamy, yellow-based undertones are perfect for rooms that are used more at night time as they offer a luxurious, relaxing space with a cosy feel.

Light Grey Paint Shades

A Pale Grey-Blue Tone

When choosing a paint colour it’s important to think about the natural and artificial lighting in each room. In small rooms that have natural light coming in, pale grey paint shades can offer the illusion of space in a chic and sophisticated manner as they help to bounce the light off the walls.

Painting the walls in dark grey colours are a great way to ensure a cosy, cocooning atmosphere whilst also setting dramatic, moody statements. You don’t have to limit dark grey shades to large rooms; however, the right shade can also transform a small room. 

You can even mix light and dark shades to create a focal point or set different atmospheres from room to room.
