Are you in love with neutral tones? Do you know that beige is the most popular neutral colour? Are you a little bit confused about how to decorate your beige bedroom? If yes, then keep reading. We have some great tips for you.
The so-called monochromatic scheme is not easy to implement but if you like the idea of having a room with one dominant neutral tone and some accent pieces in different shades of the same colour family, then read on. You see, there are several ways to decorate your beige bedroom without feeling claustrophobic.
Neutral schemes are known for making things easier when it comes to combining colours, as they are much less challenging than contrasting hues.
Decorating your beige bedroom is easy because you can play with different shades of beige. You can pair different pieces in different shades of beige and you can also create a theme with one bolder shade of beige.
If you love monochromatic schemes as we do, you can use beige as the dominant neutral shade in your room. You can use it for your walls, your furniture, and even your floor to create a cohesive look. You can also use different shades of beige to accent your room.
A neutral colour scheme is a great way to introduce simplicity or subtle elegance into your home and give it an understated look. It’s not just the walls that can be beige, bedding, carpets and furniture can have this as one of their primary colours too. Here are 11 ideas:
1. Install neutral windows
Windows are the focal point of the room and if you have beige ones, then you can easily decorate your beige bedroom. You can either go for white or a creamy shade of neutral for your window treatments.
If you want to go for a bolder look, then you can try out a dark shade of beige. If you are using a dark shade of neutral for your window coverings, then you can also consider adding other neutral elements to your room, like selecting accent pieces in different hues of the same colour family.
2. Go for soft metals
Metals like silver and gold can add an elegant touch to a beige room. Metal accents can be used to decorate shelves or a headboard. You could even use it to make picture frames. Try to stay away from bold metals such as brass or copper as they may overpower the room.
3. Use light-coloured furniture
When you are decorating your beige bedroom, you should use light-coloured furniture. Although the idea behind neutral schemes is matching different shades of the same colour, you can also use different coloured pieces to create a theme in your room.
If you want to go the route of matching furniture, then use light-coloured pieces in different shades of beige. On the other hand, if you want to create a theme, then you can use different pieces in black, white, espresso or other dark shades. If you go with different pieces, you can add pops of colour through pillows, rugs, blankets, or curtains.
4. Add bright accent pieces
Accent pieces are the perfect way to add some colour to your beige bedroom without overwhelming the space. If you have a small room or an open floor plan, using many different pieces may make your room look cluttered, but you can always use a trick with one bold accent piece.
There are a lot of options when it comes to accent pieces you can use in your beige bedroom. You can use books, paintings, or even decorative pieces like a vase or a figurine in a different hue. You can use any of these items to create a theme or you can use different pieces in different hues.
5. Go for darker tones for the flooring
If you can’t do something about the walls, then you can always change the flooring. If your beige bedroom is on the ground floor, then you can go for an earthy tone like dark wood. If you have a first-floor bedroom, then you can go with a darker shade of beige.
You can also add some texture with a woven rug placed by your bed or a woven area rug in front of the bed. The rug will add a pop of colour to your beer beige bedroom or you can go with a woven pattern in a darker shade of beige.
6. Go for bedding in a bold colour
The bedding is usually the focal point of a bedroom. It’s the item you see the most, so choosing one that complements the rest of the room makes sense. Bold or bright colour is a great way to introduce colour into a beige room. You can find bedding in all types of fabrics, so you have plenty of options to weigh your decision.
7. Add some colour through artwork
Artwork and decor items are a great way to introduce colour and interest to a beige room without repaint. You can use a bolder neutral colour for the frame of the painting and then use a light colour on the painting itself. You can also use two different pieces with two different hues of the same colour family.
A colourful painting can be hung over the bed while a colourful textile, such as a tapestry, can be used as a throw or an area rug. Try to avoid bold colours in large pieces of decor, such as wall art and large rugs or tapestries as they might overpower the room. Instead, choose pieces in muted hues, such as blue, green, and yellow. Beige walls work well with colours such as blue, green, yellow, pink, orange, and purple.
8. Use throw rugs
A beige room will benefit from a soft accent rug, especially in a bedroom where you spend a lot of time walking around barefoot. Choose a rug in a colour that complements the rest of the room or one that introduces a pop of colour. You can also find throw rugs that have bold patterns or colours. A rug will provide warmth to the room, improve its aesthetic appeal, and increase the lifespan of the wooden floor.
9. Decorate with florals
Floral arrangements are one of the best ways to bring colour into a beige room. Choose flowers and plants in bold colours such as blue, orange, yellow, red, pink, and purple.
Avoid using flowers and plants that produce a strong aroma. If you have allergies in your home, you want to avoid having flowers that are known to release potent scents.
10. Add some greenery, it’s good for you!
You can also add some greenery to your beige bedroom to add some colour. You can use potted plants for this or you can even go with a hanging plant to add a pop of green to your room. You can use brighter or bolder shades of green for this or you can try out a darker shade of green, like an evergreen.
11. Add some shine
One great way to add shine to a beige room is through bright lighting fixtures. You can install wall sconces in a bold colour or go for a more subtle option such as a chrome finish. You can also choose to install pendant lights or chandeliers. Another option is to use accent pieces like vases, decorative boxes, or decorative jars.
The bottom line
Decorating a beige room can be challenging, but it is also a great opportunity to experiment with colour and different styles. Remember that while a beige room may seem like a safe choice, it can be bold and beautiful. With these tips, you’re sure to create a beautiful and inviting space that you can enjoy for years to come.
