2018 color trends


With the new year comes a brand new outlook on, well, just about everything. One of the most popular improvements for the new year, repainting. There’s nothing like starting off with a fresh new look for your home. Give a room more vibrancy, more life, make it a place the family loves to congregate. So what colors should you be looking at as we enter 2018 and you strive to makeover a tired and otherwise drab space…Here ae a few suggestions regarding the new year’s hottest new colors.

Bolder is Better

People aren’t afraid of venturing into new paint territory. Beiges and whites are certainly fine, but if you really want to create that WOW effect, how about a bolder choice. Deep reds are definitely daring—giving your room instant warmth and instant flair.

Or what about a bright, more electrifying blue. If contrasted with clean white trim and more neutral accessories, a standout blue shade could really turn a room around.

Getting Back To Nature

Just as the world seems to be going “green,” so are paint colors for 2018. It’s all about true earth tones—not merely sedate attempts at such colors. Paint manufacturers are mimicking that verdant green, or the honeyed browns, the golden sun-kissed tones. Nature is making a designer come back in a major way in the new year!

Go-to Grays

Grey has always been a big color and this coming year, it’s getting even bigger. Now more and more homeowners are experimenting with various shades of this not-really-neutral tone. Yes, gray does go with just about anything, but it also holds its own on the color wheel. If you’re not sure about a particular shade for a particular room, there are a world of grays to explore.

Fashion Forward

As the fashion world goes, so do paint colors. 2018’s palette of choice also involves soothing, verging-on the-brink-of-pastel tones. The sea foams, the lavenders and the corals are all trending but in an updated and fresh new way. A great color scheme for creating an ultra restful bedroom.

Picking the Perfect Gray: So Many Choices

Gray is trending. And why wouldn’t it be…

Gray is a neutral color that still possesses the subtleties of shading, tone and depth. Not to mention, gray goes with just about anything. Homeowners are certainly falling in love with the color—but then comes the tough part, which shade of gray is right for your home?

From charcoal gray, to silver gray, to near white gray, the possibilities are seemingly endless. So how do you know which gray is right for your particular project? We’ve helped a number of clients sort through the kaleidoscope of grays out there in anticipation of a room remodel. What we have discovered is that the shade of gray chosen is dependent on personal preference, the amount of light a room gets, the furnishing and décor going into that room, and even the overall function of the room.

Assessing Your Light Situation

Does the room being painted have a ton of natural light streaming in? It’s important to evaluate the lighting situation prior to selecting your gray of choice. Generally, if your room does have an abundance of light, the gray that you put on the walls will appear rather “cool” during the day. If this is the effect that you want, then choose a shade that really plays up those cool undertones. If however, you want a warmer feel, then you might wish to select a gray that tends toward the beige end of the spectrum.

Light versus Dark

The intensity of the gray you choose will certainly make a big difference in the overall feel and look of the room. If you really want that essential “grayness,” perhaps go for something a bit darker in nature. Whereas if you are only looking for hints and whispers of gray, you might want to steer toward lighter shades that are more neutral in appearance.

What Else is in the Room

Some people want to work with what’s already in the room. So with a living room for example, the couches, areas rugs, and other such furnishings and accessories will all factor into your choice of gray. This is why swatches are truly a wonderful invention. Grab a bunch, put them next to your furniture. See what works and what shades to avoid all together.

Gray is a very hot color, and fortunately, a timeless one! We would love to help determine which gray might be the best choice for your room makeover. Call today for your free consultation and let’s select that perfect shade for your home!
