Looking for the perfect grey shade for your next home project? Here you’ll find the Dulux Grey Colour Chart in one place so you can find, compare and pick your perfect grey!
Grey paint colours are hugely popular in an interior, loved for their neutrality and versatility with other shades.
There is a huge scope for how grey can feel in your interior too from pastel, very pale grey shades all the way through to defining charcoal grey shades.
Whether you’re looking to incorporate grey into your hallway, bedroom, living room or beyond, join me as I explore all of the Dulux grey colours in their offering.
What Are The Most Popular Dulux Grey Colours?
There is a whole range of differing grey shades within the Dulux collection, but three of the most popular shades for an interior are Polished Pebble, Goose Down and Chic Shadow.
These three grey shades are tonally quite different, with Chic Shadow being darker and more defining, and Polished Pebble being classed as a light grey shade.
Dulux Grey Colour Chart – Let’s Meet The Grey Colours
Kicking off with the darkest grey paint colours from the Dulux grey colour chart, these defining shades can be used for wall colours, or as an accent colour on skirting boards, architraves and doors for a defining look.
This defining Charcoal Grey shade is defining, yet not overpowering in a space. It’s classed as a cool neutral as it has blue undertones.
It pairs beautifully with shades such as blue, neutral colours such as beige, cream and sage green and it looks equally as good with bold pops of colour.
Using it as an accent colour in a space is effective, and it helps to ground the room. It can be a better option than black in an interior scheme.
Undertones are what can change a colour, and whilst Trafalgar Grey is still considered a dark grey it has a very different look and feel to Gallant Grey.
In fact, this shade has green undertones so in certain lights it can give a glimmer of green.
I’d always recommend getting a tester pot of your chosen shades beforehand and painting a swatch in your chosen room so you can see how it looks in different light, and at different times during the day.
Noble Grey is one of the darkest charcoal grey colours in the Dulux range.
With blue undertones, this cool neutral is highly versatile and well suited to homes looking for a defining edge.
Perfect for use as an accent colour in a space such as on skirtings, furniture, architraves and doors.
For a grey that airs on a mid-dark grey shade, Grey Splendor is a perfect choice.
With blue undertones it’s classed as a cool neutral, yet highly versatile with both neutral, tonal and statement shades such a mustard yellow, pink and greens.
Dulux Urban Obsession is a deep, dark grey shade with a cool blue undertone.
It can also be described as a dark slate grey or charcoal grey color.
The specific shade of Urban Obsession may vary slightly depending on the lighting conditions in the room and the finish of the paint (e.g. matte, satin, gloss).
Mid-Light Grey Shades
There is a whole host of mid-light shades in the Dulux grey colour chart that are much easier to use throughout a home, on walls, ceilings or positioning them as an accent colour within a space.
If you’re looking for a cool neutral which is both distinctive and versatile, Polished Pebble by Dulux is a great choice for a whole range of projects.
It’s a light grey which means it’s complementary to a wide range of other colours.
Introduce and layer other colours through furnishings and decor accessories to avoid the room feeling cold.
Dulux Chic Shadow is is a mid range grey shade, it does have warm undertones from lilac colouring, but it’s still generally considered a cool grey for an interior.
Pairing with purple undertones will help to bring this warmth out in Chic Shadow.
Coastal Grey paint by Dulux is a pale, almost baby blue shade that is underpinned by tones of grey.
This muted shade is light, airy and adds a sense of tranquility, and calm to a space.
This muted shade of blue helps to create a beautifully serene and calm interior, perfect for use in hallways, kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms.
Dulux Modest Grey is one of my favourite lighter shades in the collection.
This versatile grey has blue undertones and is perfect for hallways, living rooms, kitchens and beyond.
Pair with warmer neutrals or a bold accent to bring some warmth to this shade.
Most grey shades by Dulux all have a distinctive hint to them, derived from their undertones.
Like many grey shades that have blue undertones, Grey Wisp actually has purple undertones bringing a little touch of warmth.
This cool neutral could be brought to life by a purple accent, but equally works well as part of a neutral colour scheme too.
Pearl Grey is a slightly lighter and brighter shade than Grey Wisp.
Its green undertones gives it that distinctive hint, and naturally it works tonally well with other green shades from sage green to emerald green.
Position it with neutral shades for a cohesive feel, or inject a bit of colour with a more statement shade.
As you can imagine, Dulux have a huge range of off-grey shades too and I’ve focused on including most of the true-greys in their Dulux grey colour chart.
However, Matcha Grey is a bit of an outlier. This on-trend shade looks like an earthy green, greige and grey in different lights.
This type of shade is perfect if you want a little more colour and warmth than a true grey offers.
Just remember to grab a tester pot first as it can look very different in different lights, and settings.
This really is a true-grey from the Dulux Grey Colour Chart which doesn’t have any set undertones.
This mid-light grey shade can be used as a defining accent colour in well placed areas such as on skirting boards, architraves and doors.
If you’re using it to paint a full room, just remember to layer with some additional colour to avoid the room from feeling cold.
This gorgeous grey shade has green AND blue undertones, and it can appear like a pale blue, sage green and grey depending on the light it’s in.
This versatile shade is one of my favourites, especially if you’re looking for a warmer grey shade for your interior.
Grey Steel 1
Out of the Grey Steel shades, this is the darkest grey and has bold blue undertones which makes this a cool neutral for any interior.
You may choose to work it with one of the lighter Grey Steel shades, positioning this one as an accent colour in the room (as opposed to black).
Grey Steel 2
This lighter shade has gorgeous purple undertones which makes the shade feel light, brighter and a little bit warmer.
Pair with purple tones, other neutral shades such as cream and earthy green, but it equally works well with bold statement colours.
Grey Steel 3
If you’re painting other areas in the room in a green shade, this is going to be the best tonal match as Grey Steel 3 has green undertones.
This gorgeous, pale grey shade is highly versatile in an interior, perfect for neutral colour schemes throughout a house.
Grey Steel 4
Lastly, Grey Steel 4 is the lightest of the collection. This almost off-white, beige and very light grey shade is one of the most versatile for an interior and could easily be used as a base colour without the room feeling cold.
It has yellow undertones so this colour grey is perfect for cold, North facing rooms.
You will naturally be drawn to one colour during this time, and if not, why not try incorporating a mix of them all in some way?
