Spring is right around the corner, and for many homeowners, spring is the perfect time to refresh and update their interior design. And one of the easiest and most impactful ways to refresh a space without breaking the bank is a fresh coat of paint.
Paint can completely transform the look and feel of a room—and if you’re planning on painting, you may want to change that look and feel to be in line with this year’s biggest paint trends.
But what, exactly, are those paint trends?
A recent article from realtor.com outlined a few on-trend paint colors that are set to be everywhere this spring, including:
- Teal. Teal is a versatile color that works well in a variety of design styles, both traditional and modern; try painting your cabinets a bright teal for a fun, bold kitchen design—or, if you want your room to feel especially timely and on-trend, try pairing teal with dark gray or red. (Just make sure to swatch your paint before you tackle the whole project, as teal can look more green or blue depending on the lighting.)
- Muted blues. Is teal too bright for you? Not to worry. Muted blues are also having a serious moment this spring. Because blues have a calming effect, this type of blue will work particularly well in the bedroom. And if you really want to make this color pop, paint the walls in a muted blue, and then incorporate a deeper shade of mid-tone blue into your decor—like a comforter set, throw pillows, or rug.
- Unexpected color pairings. If you have a paint color you’re already in love with—but want to give your room an on-trend makeover—consider pairing it with an unexpected hue, like tan and purple. Not only will an unexpected palette add visual interest to your space, it also helps you to create a look that feels uniquely you.
