25 of the Best Beige Paint Color Options for Guest Bedrooms

A beautiful guest bedroom with beige walls and ceiling.

Let’s face it. The color beige is not an exciting one. Even the fact the word is French in origin can’t save it from being un-sexy. The reason why it sticks around and gets used as frequently as it does is down to its neutral nature and appropriateness for rooms that don’t see a lot of activity. In fact, beige is the perfect choice for your guest bedroom, a room you no longer use for much of anything, but can’t keep it empty and not give it some kind of purpose.

The guest bedroom is the room that’s been vacated by its previous occupant or just never got used for anything other than storage for bedroom furniture. In turn, you decided that you’d show the world that you’re a hospitable person and have a room available for all comers.

The reality is that the room gets occupied a couple of times a year at the most, and you want to paint the walls in a color that’s not white and not gray to keep it neutral. So beige it is. Here’s a look at 25 colors of beige that are just right for the walls of your guest bedroom.

Basket Beige (SW 6143)

Basket Beige by Sherwin-Williams is most definitely the brown of a basket that’s been exposed to a bit of weather but hasn’t lost all of its tones. Yet. This slightly lower than middle-of-the-road beige carries a little bit of cocoa and gives you the option to pair it with a middling lime color to keep it from being too dull. On the flip side, the color can act as a backdrop for a room with a beach or desert colorway.

Beige Intenso (SW 9096)

There’s no denying the fact that Sherwin-Williams’ Beige Intenso is strong, but it does beg the question of “can beige ever be strong?” The answer lies in its visual similarity to a cup of latte. Latte is more milk than coffee which means it’s not very strong, and therein lies your answer. The value of the color lies in the fact that it’s still a reasonable neutral that won’t push itself off the walls at you or your guests.

Barcelona Beige (SW 7530)

Can’t get to Barcelona to view the Sagrada Familia Familia Basilica by Antonio Gaudi? Bring the color of the concrete used to build the cathedral into your home with Barcelona Beige by Sherwin-Williams. Cover your walls in this paint and complete the look by hanging pictures of stained glass on the walls. Your guests won’t know if they’re supposed to behave or not during their stay.

Smoky Beige (SW 9087)

Despite the name Smoky Beige, this color from Sherwin-Williams does not look like a smoker has been hanging out in your guest bedroom and fouling the walls with tar. It does have a touch of gray to give it a foggy look, but it’s not brilliant as far as beiges go. Make sure to exercise caution when matching colors because this one is tipping over into taupe territory and you don’t want your furnishings to blend in with the walls.

Utterly Beige (SW 6080)

Utterly Beige is, let’s face it, utterly beige. Sherwin-Williams achieved beige-ly perfection when they created this shade. It looks like it’s an equal balance between gray and brown, the two base colors found in beige. What the paint maker also managed to achieve is the perfect neutral that’s warm and versatile. Deep brown-reds and wishy-washy aquas will pleasingly pop away from the walls when used sparingly.

Unfussy Beige (SW 6043)

When you want your guest bedroom to look like a hotel room that’s comfortable, but not too comfortable, Unfussy Beige by Sherwin-Williams is your color. This beige features a touch of blush to make it not feel too dull or unwelcoming, but it’s not going to generate excitement, either. However, if that’s the look that you’re going for in an attempt to keep guest visits as short as possible, this is the color that gets the job done.

Realist Beige (SW 6078)

Realist Beige by Sherwin-Williams looks as if it was lifted straight out of a painting by Courbet or Manet. They made liberal use of the color beige in their artwork,n and so can you, but on your walls. Confuse your guests by adding a few strategically-placed prints by Realist painters and watch as the colors of the walls wash out the beige in the paintings. The result is one of pleasing Swiss cheese effect in the pictures.

Bona Fide Beige (SW 6065)

Bona Fide Beige by Sherwin Williams is a bit deeper than you would expect from a color that calls itself real. It tilts a bit into the brown side of the shade instead of being somewhere right in the middle and slightly pale. This is a perfect color if you’re seeking to get almost neutral, but not quite. Just keep in mind that your guests aren’t going to be writing letters home to exclaim about the awesome wall color in the guest bedroom.

Concept Beige (HDCSm14-3)

Concept Beige by Behr

Concept Beige by Behr is a sandy number that evokes the feeling of the beach just as the tide has pulled back. The idea that beige could be a concept is a bit of an interesting one. This paint color looks more like it’s been pulled out of nature instead of painted on the walls of an art gallery or museum to act as a kooky concept color to backdrop the latest acquisitions or sale pieces.

Bistol Beige (HDC-AC-14)

Bristol Beige by Behr

Bristol Beige by Behr is a very strong brown tone of beige that makes one think of mud. Considering the fact that the color of mud is frequently the combination of gray and brown, this color from Behr isn’t too far off. You might like this color because it brings warmth into the room, but you might want to limit its use or brighten it up with other tones lest your guests think they’re staying in a mud hut.

High Style Beige (N270-1)

This slinky number will have your guests puttin‘ on the Ritz every time they walk into the room. This beige has a pink influence that’s not out of line with Art Deco colorways that were popular during the 1920’s and 1930’s. There’s a smooth sophistication to the color that’s rarely found in this neutral of neutrals and you might find your guests sipping on pink martinis in response to the influence of the color.

Honey Beige (390D-4)

Honey Beige by Behr

Honey Beige by Behr almost sounds like a play on the paint maker’s name. Its golden hues evoke the color of honey fresh out of the comb and gives the room a warm glow. The base notes of brown and gray are just about invisible with this paint color, and it is on the brighter side. The color is perfect if you’re the kind of host who wants your guests to wake up cheery and happy every morning along with hoping they’ll stay a while.

Aged Beige (PPU7-09)

It’s uncertain if Aged Beige by Behr is supposed to evoke the color of old parchment or make you think that you’re in a waiting room that hasn’t had its walls painted for 30 years. Fortunately, it’s a calming color that has no challenge to it whatsoever apart from a little pink to keep it from looking elderly. This is the perfect paint to tone down a room to the point where all anyone ever wants to do there is snooze.

Peach Beige (260A-3)

When you look at this color, you’ll wonder why Behr called it Peach Beige instead of just peach. However, all is not lost for this particular tone of beige as you can still pick up on the gray and just a little splash of brown to qualify it as a neutral tone, but barely. Part of this is due to its reflective value of 73 that makes it a very intense and bright color. If you’re looking for a color that fades into the background for your guest bedroom, this is not it.

Fruit Salad (M200-2)

Fruit Salad by Behr

Fruit Salad by Behr is so fruity that your guests may feel they need to dress up as Carmen Miranda while they’re in the room. The color is perfect if you want to evoke nights at the Copacabana and have a party in the guest bedroom even when you don’t have anyone staying over.

Silk Gown (PWN-23)

What’s that you say? You can’t afford to cover your walls in beige colored silk fabric so you’re forced to use paint instead? Behr’s got a color for you with Silk Gown. This peachy number, while not nearly as pink as Fruit Salad, is a smooth, satiny number with a light value so high that it practically shimmers when painted on a wall. Just think of all the money you’ll save by not buying silk fabric and going with this paint instead.

Bayshore Beige (1079)

Bayshore Beige by Benjamin Moore is part of the Classic Color Collection, and it’s easy to see why. About the only way to get a more perfect beige is to buy a paint called Perfect Beige and you wouldn’t see a lot of difference. However, if your plan is to bore your guests to sleep, you’ll easily achieve it by painting your walls in this color.

Basking Ridge Beige (1158)

The name Basking Ridge Beige by Benjamin Moore evokes the image of a desert ridge where lizards go to get warm. It’s actually the name of a town in New Jersey and most of the buildings feature this particular shade of beige in stone or paint. You could always sell the concept of the color to your guests as something more exotic than a town in New Jersey if you like.

Bronzed Beige (2151-50)

Bronzed Beige by Benjamin Moore is on the buttery side of beige spectrum. More yellow than brown or gray, this spreadable number from the Classic Color collection has just enough brown to make your walls feel toasty. The light reflectance value of 67.9 also helps tone down the paint so your guests aren’t blinded when the sunlight hits the walls.

Tapestry Beige (OC-32)

As its name of Tapestry Beige suggests, this paint just kind of hangs on the walls. It’s neutral to the nth degree and comes from Benjamin Moore’s Off-White Color collection. A touch of olive gives it a lift, but not a lot, and it definitely won’t challenge anyone who enters the room.

Sandpiper Beige (CC-368)

Sandpiper Beige is part of the Designer Classics Collection which is code for colors that are kind of basic, but not really. This color comes straight from the wing of a sandpiper, and also does an excellent job of evoking the wet, sandy shores that are the favorite habitat of the waterfowl. You’ll want to bring in an essential oil atomizer and fill it with seashore scented oils to complete the experience for your guests. They won’t know if they’re at the shore or in your home.

Bradstreet Beige (HC-48)

Bradstreet Beige by Benjamin Moore leans towards the brown side of beige which almost pushes it out of the neutral category. This color could also use the word “dun” in its name because it compares nicely to the dun colored coat worn by many a Wall Street banker. This is a warm beige due to the infusion of red to make it warmer, unlike the cold-hearted reputation that bankers can’t seem to shed.

Grant Beige (HC-83)

Benjamin Moore introduced the color of Grant Beige in 1976 as part of its Historical Collection. The beige also has a lot in common with the color of a $50 bill after it’s been sent through the wash a few times. The color is so cash money that your guests will be throwing dollar bills and making it rain in the room during their stay.

Adobe Beige (AC-7)

Adobe Beige by Benjamin Moore perfectly matches the color of the sandy clay used by Pueblo Indians to build their homes. It’s part of the America’s Colors’ pallette and is purposely created to bring the color of the adobe into your guest bedroom. The color is middling on the light reflectance value and has a bit of pink to it so it won’t fall flat on the walls. You’re still probably going to want to bring in some bright colors to help make it pop however.

Brunswick Beige (1061)

Brunswick Beige by Benjamin Moore evokes the feeling of an old bowling alley with lanes that have turned a burnished gold-brown with age. It’s smooth, slick and has a little shine to it while making you feel like you’re in a place as comfortable as home. Your guests will most certainly appreciate the warmth and familiarity of the color while they stay at your home for a few frames.
