We've gathered some super examples for you to peruse as you choose a paint color to match with gray tile.
Gray Tile Bathroom With Monochromatic Walls
Neutral spaces are all the rage these days, which is why similarly neutral paints work well with gray tile.
1. Gray Tile With Soft White Walls
Pick a beautiful shade of just off-white to go with your grey tile. A good pro tip is to buy several samples and paint poster board squares. Hold them up with the flooring and the room's lighting to see how they look. Whites can change colors when paired in different ways, and this can help you pick the perfect shade.
2. Pick A Cool-Toned White For Charcoal Gray Walls
Gray is usually on the cool end of the color spectrum. If you have a bathroom without natural light, consider picking an equally cool-toned white to pair with your tile.
3. Pick Ivory Paint for Greige Tiles.
If your gray tiles tilt toward the cooler side, pick an ivory white with warmer tones for your walls.
4. Gray On Gray On Gray
This bathroom is a symphony of grays. Light gray paint on the ceiling reflects the other tones of grays in the room.
5. Light Gray Subway Tile With Dove Gray Paint
This classic light gray subway tile looks beautiful with a barely dove gray paint on the walls. The mirror frame and vanity in darker gray complete the monochromatic look.
6. Why Not Choose Tile Instead Of Paint?
This bathroom forgoes the paint for an all tile look. Charcoal gray and white tiles pair well for a cool, contemporary look.
7. Dark Charcoal And Light Gray Combined
Are you looking for something a bit more dramatic? Choose an almost black charcoal gray to pair with lighter grays, and you'll add drama to your space.
8. Stark White Walls Against Dark Charcoal Tile
Love the look of dark gray tile, but don't want your bathroom to be too dark? Pair it with stark white paint to keep things light and airy.
9. Medium Grays and Cremes
In this all tile bathroom, the ceiling shines with light-medium gray paint.
10. Wood Tone Grey Tile With Marbled Grey Tile And White Ceiling
Here's another bathroom that's skipped the paint altogether. Instead, sizeable marbled grey tiles cover the floor and two walls. An accent wall of wood tone rectangular tiles, also in grey, draws the eye.
11. Mix Up The Grays
In this sleek bathroom, darker gray tiles in the shower play nicely with the medium gray cabinets and floor tile. Even the towel warmer is in a gray tone.
12. Use A Tile Border For Direction With Wall Color
In this darker grey and warm-toned ivory bathroom, the tile border contains both colors. Drawing from an existing feature in a room is a great way to choose a wall color.

This dramatic bathroom breaks up the vast expanse of wall tile with a horizontally striped barn-style door in black. The color echoes the colors of the towel rack and sink fixtures.

Here bright white paint applied to the window and mirror trim, and the ceiling provides a stark contrast for the gray tile. It's a fresh and clean look.

1. Charcoal Gray Tile Paired With Wedgewood Blue
Blue and gray are a natural go-together combination. Here a light Wedgewood blue complements the darker gray tile and acts as an intermediary between the tile and the natural wood vanity.

7. Pink And Gray Are A Natural Combination
Besides blue and gray, we love the vibe of pink and gray. The two shades go together, no matter which level of lightness and darkness you choose. Here Fuschia and medium gray are divine.
8. Red-Orange And Light Gray Tiles
Here's another bold color combination if you're looking for the wow factor. Light-medium gray tiles are paired with a fire engine red wall and black fixtures. It's bold and beautiful.

11. Orange Accents, Ivory Walls, And Gray Tiles
If you want to use orange for your fixture and backsplash, ivory tones of white are an excellent choice for the walls. It's warmer color acts as an excellent medium to bring the orange and gray together.
