Beige is a great neutral color because you can combine it with pretty much anything and it will look amazing. Since colors affect our mood, once again you need to think about what kind of energy you want in your bathroom!

  • For an energizing bath: add vibrant colors like Terracotta orange
  • To keep it casual and classic: use contrasts of black
  • Maintaining neutrality: a light, dull gray, and white are the best combo with beige

Tip: If you have a small bathroom, keep it white and add some touches of beige. That will make your space look bigger and brighter!
