17 Best Greige Paint Colors Trending in 2023

Having a lot of greige paint color options can be exciting, but do you know how to select the best ones? More importantly, how can you tell greige apart from warm gray or light beige? The possibilities for choosing greige colors are endless, and we are here to help.

We researched the available ones from Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore and picked the 17 best greige paint colors trending in 2023. Now, you do not have to sort through the numerous options; just go through our list and you cannot go wrong with any choice.

What Is Greige Paint Color?

Greige paint color combines gray and beige. This combination makes both colors richer but typically creates a mid-tone color. That means greige is usually a color that can work in a warm or cool color scheme, which is a huge advantage.

However, sometimes, the gray color may be more than the beige color, or the beige color may be more than the gray color. At other times, the percentage of both gray and beige are equal. These percentages determine whether a particular greige paint color leans toward cool, warm, or remains mid-tone.

What Are the Undertones of a Greige Paint Color?

Because greige is a color that is typically mid-toned, it can have warm and cool hues or undertones. Greige can have gray or beige/brown undertones. At other times, the color may have green undertones, although this is uncommon.

If a greige paint color has green undertones, it leans toward the cool side. The same is true for a greige paint color with gray undertones, although you may also find some greige colors with gray undertones leaning toward the warm side. But if the undertones are green, it is a cool greige paint color.

What Colors Go Well With Greige Paint Colors?

Since greige is a beautiful neutral that can lean toward warm or cool, it blends well with every color. The results may vary, but they always look great in any decor. Soft neutrals and white combined with greige produce an airy and fresh decor, even with low lighting.

Darker colors like navy and black make greige pop and look softer, creating a dramatic decor. Bright colors like red, yellow, bright blue, and orange make any room look vibrant and electric.

And because greige is neutral, it fits just about any room. Use it in your kitchen, bedroom, living room, dining room, study, den, cabinetry, on trims, on the exterior of your house, and anywhere else you want. The trick is to use the correct shade of greige for each place and complement it with the right colors based on the undertones.
