A charming primary bathroom with beige walls and ceiling.

Beige is a classic neutral color that's perfect for covering the walls of the primary bathroom. The color is surprisingly versatile despite its reputation as being boring and dull. Paint manufacturers have put in the effort to create shades of beige that range from pink to grey and everything inbetween.

Your primary bathroom is a place where you go to wash away the cares of the world for a little while. Well, maybe a long while after you lock the door behind you and put your phone on do not disturb. The room needs to be a place for relaxing and you need a wall color that soothes, not challenges. Let’s take a look at the color beige as a color to enrobe the walls of your primary bathroom and give it the calm hush you desire.

But first, do you think of monotony when you think of the color beige? Maybe it evokes the image of a purgatorial waiting room at the doctor’s office. Even the word sounds dull and uninspiring. Yet the color exists for a reason: It’s the perfect neutral for almost any setting you can think of. Beige falls into the background, doesn’t overwhelm the decor, and lets you showcase the personal touches you put into your primary bathroom. The color is on the warm side and doesn’t overpower the senses at all. In fact, it can be considered a calming color and can add to your sense of comfort when spending time in your primary bath. Here’s a look at the best beige paint color options for primary bathrooms and what makes them work so well:

Benjamin Moore’s Shaker Beige color fits in well with the austerity of the Shakers, a group of people who lived a simple lifestyle long before the Amish showed up. The color looks like someone decided to pour a little coffee into their milk and called it a day, a color that the Shakers were probably fond of due to its neutrality. This classically neutral beige will hide a multitude of sins while inviting you to stay in your primary bathroom for a while.

Brookline Beige (HC-47)

There’s a splash of red in the mix to give the color a bit of intensity and it might even pair well with a glass of merlot.

Sheraton Beige (HC-57)

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Sheraton Beige gets its name from being used in the hotel chain of the same name. Benjamin Moore created this color for the 1976 Bicentennial and is part of their Historical Collection. It’s a light and warm color that soothes and relaxes but stands out just enough to let you know it’s there on your walls and making your primary bathroom look good.

Beigewood is the perfect name for this color due to its uncanny color match to a piece of driftwood. But instead of the drab of the driftwood, the Beigewood from Benjamin Moore’s Classic Color Collection makes the primary bath feel warm and cozy. Don’t forget to pick up some driftwood to add as decor in the bathroom to connect everything together.

Golden Beige (100)

This soft, slightly peachy beige is one of those neutrals that you’ll find yourself loving because it’s neutral, then find yourself not paying a lot of attention to it because the color is that neutral. Don’t let yourself skip over this color, though. It’s great for pairing with milk chocolate and terra cotta colors for a bit of a kick. It’s also perfect as a backdrop color that allows other objects in the room to become more prominent and not get lost in the wall color.

Apricot Beige (1205)

Apricot Beige by Benjamin Moore is part of the Classic Color Collection and it’s easy to see why. It’s bright, it’s pleasant, and you wouldn’t initially view it as being beige. Mind you, the color does evoke images of the 1950s and it’s probably been around for that long. But if you have a home full of Mid-Century Modern Furniture, and you’ve brought that style into the primary bathroom, you’ll be right at home with this paint selection.

Almond Beige (2101-40)

Almond Beige by Benjamin Moore is, as its name suggests, a nutty flavor of beige. The color has a depth to it that makes the room feel intimate without losing its feeling of space. It has a touch of red to add some heat so you don’t have to add sriracha to your almonds. Unless you want to, that is.
