Beige Interior Color Examples
1. Beige Primary Bedrooms
Beige gets a bad reputation for being boring when it can be transformed into rooms that are anything but bland or yawn-worthy. The basic step for a neutral palette, beige is one of the top choices in popularity and can be molded and transformed into a warmth behind any style or secondary color scheme. The color beige is both soft and soothing without effort and gives a classic touch to your bedroom while upholding its sophistication. In fact, the versatility of the neutral color can be easily paired with unique fabrics and furniture, so you can let your imagination run wild.

2. Beige Living Rooms
Beige, much like white, is a popular “go to” color when homeowners are trying to choose a neutral color for their living room. While beige is often avoided because it seems a little drab or old-fashioned, it’s a tone that works well with most living room sizes and designs. Once you’ve discovered your favorite shade of beige, you might be wondering which other colors to incorporate into your living room. Beige pairs best with blue, brown, emerald, red, black, and white. You can use these complimentary colors in trim or in accent pieces throughout the living room.

3. Beige Kitchens
If you don’t limit beige’s reign, it can end up making your kitchen look a bit boring. Beige tends to need some variety introduced alongside it, which means that in our opinion, beige works best when it’s in tiles. Tiled beige countertops can bring a warm and almost sandy feeling to the kitchen, and do a great job of bringing the best out of natural light. Artificial light can be a bit harshly reflected off of tiled beige countertops, though, so you should opt for a cooler and less intense beige—or light source. Beige tiles on the floor give a beach house like feeling to the kitchen, but they can also be a bit overwhelming to look at.

4. Beige Dining Rooms
Dining areas come in many shapes and sizes. For small to medium dining areas, it is a very good idea to use a light color for your walls, furniture, and overall color scheme. Dark colors tend to make spaces feel smaller than they are. Going with dark shades could result in a claustrophobic, closed in feeling. Light beige is an ideal color of small to medium spaces because many shades of beige are barely any darker than pure white. Instead of having a stark white color scheme, beige introduces a hint of color and warmth while remaining very light. Some beige rooms seem to be off-white at first glance. Light beige can make a small to medium space feel larger than it is.
