Beige Living Room Data

Here are a couple of interesting facts:

  • 8.58% of living rooms are reported as being “beige” (based on analysis of 762476 living rooms).
  • 32.19% of living rooms have beige walls (based on 296,379 living rooms).

Why the difference?

I don’t know for certain, but I suspect the difference is due to the relativity.  What I mean is that rooms with some bright colors such as red pillows or yellow wood trim are reported as red or yellow because of the prominence of those colors even though they actually are a small percentage of the overall color scheme.

Whereas when it comes to living room wall color, that’s not subjective; it’s fact.

Therefore, the better data set, and I think it’s far more accurate, is that beige is one of the most popular living room colors, but not quite as popular as white but more popular than gray.

What does beige mean?

Beige is a neutral color. BournCreative.com reports beige as being “dependable, conservative, and flexible. The color beige is neutral, calm, and relaxing.”

Various shades of Beige

As you’ll see in our photo gallery of beige living rooms, there are many shades.  Sometimes it’s arguably yellow.  In other instances, arguably brown.  Where the cut off is can sometimes be difficult.

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.

Out of the 552,888 living rooms and 14 colors analyzed, 9.21 percent (or 50,925) have beige as the dominant color.

Choosing Beige as Your Dominant Design Color

Are you having a hard time deciding what color to put on your living room walls? Even if you hesitant to go with a neutral color, don’t disregard beige as an option. Beige represents dependability and flexibility. It’s also a calm and relaxing color.

A perfect blend of brown and white, beige is a color that works well in many living room designs from Asian and Mediterranean to Contemporary.

Picking Out The Perfect Shade of Beige

If you’re not a fan of beige, it could be because you haven’t found the right shade of beige. Since beige is complementary to most living room designs, you may want to consider the size of your living room when picking out the right shade of beige.

Large living rooms are great because of the extra space, but they can also feel a little uninviting. If you want to keep the walls light but want your big living room to feel and look more comfortable, choose a darker shade of beige.

Light colors are usually the best choice for smaller living rooms, as it can make the room look and feel bigger. While a lighter shade of beige would probably look best, you can always add an accent wall in a darker shade of beige for a little variety of color.

Complementary Colors With Beige

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 complementary colors in trim or in accent pieces throughout the living room.

Although beige works well with a handful of vibrant colors, balance your use of color wisely to ensure a cohesive and organized look. Feel free to mix and match patterns and colors but don’t forget to keep beige as your dominant living room design color.
