Beige bathroom: a timeless classic

Among the most loved colors in the neutral palette, beige is a shade that goes perfectly with different furnishing styles and can be used in various areas of the house.

In fact, even for the bathroom, this nuance can represent a valid alternative to the usual white, making the environment warm and delicate.

If you are thinking of renovating this room, keep reading and don’t miss all our advice!

Below you will discover how to furnish and decorate a beige bathroom and what color combinations you can create for a wow effect!

Floors and coverings: which ones to choose?

Beige is a color from the neutral palette, and, as such, can be easily combined. It is a bright and soft shade, which helps you create different effects depending on the combinations and furnishing style you choose.

Beige tricks the eye, and makes you perceive the space as larger, so you can use it successfully in a bathroom that needs light (it’s perfect for a blind bathroom).

For this reason, one of the best uses of beige in this room is for coverings , wall paint and tiles , which allows you to obtain a very bright effect.

You can choose coverings that give movement to the environment to prevent the beige (especially in a total look) from looking a little dull.

Some idea? The stone effect, a “fabric” effect or resin effect stoneware (for very modern environments) or optical tiles in two colours, for example black and beige.

The alternative to beige on the walls is beige flooring : tiled, stoneware or even light parquet (which is solid, non-floating and treated with water-based paint to resist in the bathroom), which reflects the light well and allows you to play with furniture and accessories in darker colors, allowing you to achieve an airy effect and lighten the atmosphere.

Tone-on-tone furniture and decorations

To choose how to furnish your beige bathroom, the first component to choose is the sanitary ware , whether you are designing a bathroom from scratch or renovating an existing bathroom.

The style of the entire room will revolve around these elements: suspended sanitary ware for a modern bathroom or free-standing for a vintage style.

Not widely used but very classy are the beige sanitary ware, much more original than the classic white ones and, above all, they will stand out both in contrast with a dark wall, for a very modern space, and light and soft, to give a romantic and classic.

If, however, you prefer white bathroom fixtures, you can play with beige on furniture and accessories :

for example, for the sink top, or the textiles. You can also combine different shades of beige in curtains, rugs, towels, to combine with grey, dove gray and the much loved greige, creating a bright and light environment without flattening it.

The furniture can be white and shiny, with steel or lacquered finishes, in a modern or contemporary environment. Metal details and recycled furniture will make your bathroom in perfect industrial style.

By playing with various wood species and natural fabrics you will instead give a natural, country or shabby style. 

5 combinations to try

The beauty of beige is that, in addition to being suitable for many different styles, it is also easily combined with different colors.

We’ve already suggested using it in a palette with other neutrals, but here are five other combinations to try in your beige bathroom.


Blue and all its shades are very suitable for furnishing and decorating the bathroom, because they recall water, cleanliness and lightness.

The contrast with beige is pleasant and delicate, both with darker blue tones and, for a softer sensation, with light blue.

In this case you can choose white bathroom fixtures and play with beige and blue for walls and tiles, or with a dark blue floor lightened by beige walls.

Aqua green

Another delicate color that recalls the sea is aqua green, a pastel color that pairs very well with beige, to be used especially if you have a small bathroom, with little natural light, or even a blind one.

You will obtain a marine and bright effect, without being banal, suitable for a shabby or Provençal style.

You can use beige and teal on the walls, but also in the furniture: the sink top, a piece of furniture or even the teal bathroom fixtures.


With a shade of beige that is close to dove grey, a very successful natural contrast is the one with brown.

Use beige for the walls and then combine light or dark brown furniture, enlivened by touches of rope or cream colored nuances.

For an even more natural effect, choose fabrics such as hemp or linen for curtains and textiles, while your material of choice will be wood in all its essences, even in the form of parquet.

Pastel pink

A particularly pleasant choice is to combine beige with a very light and bright shade of pink, pastel pink.

This combination is suitable for romantic and relaxed atmospheres, without running the risk of becoming cloying. Plus, it creates a clean environment and can help you brighten even a very small bathroom.


Combined with black, one of the neutral colors par excellence, it manages to warm up even the most minimal and modern environment.

In this case you can decide to use different shades of beige for floors and walls and use black only as a contrasting detail: a wrought iron cabinet, the tile joints in the shower, the sink top.
