Neutral Paint Colours That Will Work in Every Room

Neutral tones are the baseline of a home. You may be thinking that neutrals are simply white and beige but there is so much more to explore! These tones are not only inspired by nature and calmness but has the ability to make a statement. A sense of minimalism is driven by these neutral tones. The simplicity of neutrals can be influenced by Colours such as brown, green and peach. 

Neutral colours go far beyond a wall colour. This palette can extend to furniture, accessories, accent walls and more. The great thing about playing with these colours and tones is that most colours complement neutrals. They pair well with all trims, textures and flooring choices. You can use neutral colours inside and outside the home to create different moods and feelings.

Here is a great start to inject neutrality to the space. 

Simply White

Benjamin Moore

Crisp clean and classic. This colour is great to let the rest of the decor take center stage. It will allow a clean and simple natural and rich pallete to any room inside or out. The Benjamin Moore colour is slightly warm and great for a minimalist home. 

Stonington Gray

Benjamin Moore

Grey is a stand out neutral and very trendy. This soft grey by Benjamin Moore has an undertone of blue that gives it depth. This colour will easily pair with many colours but would be soft next to any cool white to make it pop. Fantastic for kitchen cabinets, this a great change instead of a standard stark white.

Dorian Grey


This Sherwin-Williiams colour blurs the lines of gray and beige. It is a perfect colour that is not too warm but not too cool. It would pair best with lighter greys or browns for a monochromatic vibe without making the space feel cold. 

Pale Powder

Farrow & Ball

Even though this particular colour looks more grey, it's technically aqua-blue. Playing with tones and colour would come across as neutral. Add any hint of colour against this Farrow & Ball colour. Add weightlessly, airy feel to any space great for a bathroom or bedroom.

Silverado Sage


This tone, from Magnolia, stands out as a fantastic neutral. Although not what you would think of as a classic shade, this has an earthy grounded feel to the shade. With gray undertones and almost looking dark grey with specific lighting, this is a classic modern and chic colour. This would be great to be used against white or wood tones. 



Not too crisp or stark, Gravelstone by Behr is an ideal neutral. This colour comes across as a lighter tan. It evokes a sense of tranquillity and is great as a backdrop next to white and black.
