Every year, the major paint manufacturers announce their Color of the Year. The 2021 colors have all been released and vary greatly. This is great news for homeowners looking for a modern and trendy paint pallet. Hopefully these will provide you with some inspiration for your home.
We’re starting here because bathrooms are smaller and easier to complete, especially if it is your first painting project. If you want a beachy or calm feeling in your bathroom, consider Aegean Teal by Benjamin Moore. With a blue-green base and a grey hue, it will compliment both white and grey décor.
If you prefer a more neutral tone or have bold or vibrant elements in your bathroom space, a neutral paint color may be better for your project. In this case, take a look at the color pallet of the year from Valspar. Our top bathroom pick from their dozen Colors of the Year is Unforgettable, a warm cream color, that will work well with virtually any vanity, whether it is stained or painted in any hue.
As many homes today have open floor plans, kitchen paint colors are rarely just used in the kitchen anymore. You’ll want to consider a color that complements your countertops and cabinets as well as the colors in your adjoining rooms. Again, we’d recommend looking at Valspar’s Colors of the Year as a starting point. They have hues like Granite Dust, a true grey, and Gallery Grey, a greige, which are both great neutrals and in keeping with recent trends in home décor.
The dining room is a room where you can use almost any paint color and achieve a beautiful result. If you want something warm and rich, consider Passionate by HGTV in the Sherwin-Williams line. It’s a deep berry-red color, yet soft and perfect for dining.
Dark Accent Walls
Although accent walls overall aren’t a hot trend currently, there is one exception: a dark or black accent wall. One color perfect for this is Urbane Bronze which is Sherwin-William’s color of the year. Consider it in your bedroom against light furnishings. It’s also an option for your great room if you’ve chosen a neutral color throughout the rest of the space and want a little pop.
Of course, if you’re painting all or part of your home to sell it, make sure to use light neutral colors. Anything with a hint of grey is popular with buyers. The goal is to make your home look clean and bright and the darker the color, the smaller and darker the room looks.
