Finding the perfect neutral paint colour can be challenging with so many colours to choose from. As the trend for grey interiors moves towards warmer tones and more neutral colour palettes in 2023, we're seeing an increase in demand for greige colours, light taupes and warm whites. We've collated our shortlist of some of the most popular and most versatile neutral shades for you.
From Farrow and Ball neutral paint colours to classic Dulux colours, we offer something for everyone at The Paint Shed. No matter what surface, what environment or what finish - we can mix the colour of your choice, in the paint of your choice. It's that easy.

Using a Single Neutral Colour
If you're looking to use a single colour throughout your decor scheme, a neutral shade is likely to be your first choice. Using the same colour throughout the walls in your home can create a sense of continuity, calm and flow.
If you're using a neutral colour to paint your entire home, we suggest painting the ceilings too so as not to leave them bright white and really encourage a sense of continuity. Painting woodwork a darker shade of neutral or a contrasting black colour is also a nice touch.
Where to Use Neutral Paint Colours?
Neutrals work well in any space. They create a calming, relaxed space feel and coordinate well with most other colours making it easy to change your accent colour in each room with soft furnishings.
Monochrome interiors are having a moment and are set to continue to trend into 2024. Choose from crisp, bright whites, warm whites, off-whites and dark tauper or greige neutrals to pair with black woodwork or metal fittings on door handles and mirrors for example. If Black feels like too bold a contrast, pair your neutral colour on walls and ceilings with a rich chocolatey brown colour instead to create the same vibe.
