Starting off our list, Reserved White, made by Sherwin Williams is an excellent beige for the dining room, or any other room in the house. This color leans more toward the gray side of the color spectrum.

It is light enough to not become overwhelming, but yet dark enough to not be confused with stark white. The subtleness of this color also makes it perfectly suitable to paint other rooms that may adjoin to the dining room. Reserved White can also look great with a darker gray accent color.
