A quick coat of paint can do wonders for any home. In an afternoon, you can transform any room from “blah” to “oh, yeah!” with minimal effort and cost.
But choosing the right paint color can be tough. Some colors are timeless, while others are fleeting fads (check out these eyesores!) that may leave you reevaluating your choice down the road. So which palette should you go with? Here are a few different trending paint colors that are poised to be popular in the upcoming year.
Trending Paint Colors for 2019
Head to your local paint store, or call a professional, and see if you can find some of these awesome color choices that will make any room in your home pop. There are many colors to choose from, so you can find the hue and tone that matches your style.
Gray has been a trending color for years now, and 2019 will be no different. Look for this color around cabinets and in rooms that have a laid-back feel to them.
For 2019, however, many people will choose to go with a gray that has a little color in it. The addition of lilac will brighten up the color but will be subtle enough that it doesn’t draw attention to itself.
If you love gray but want something a little bolder, pewter will be a great choice.
This dark gray is a perfect choice for accent walls. It goes with almost any color and it’s a bold statement that will be great looking for years to come. In fact, it’s surprising that pewter hasn’t been one of the most popular colors in the past.
Yellow has its place, but you may be thinking that this darker hue is off-putting. Don’t. Mustard is a great alternative to gold or bright yellows and adds warmth and depth that can make any room more inviting.
This color is great for walls or trim.
Hues like charcoal blue or ice blue will be popular in 2019.
Blue can be a tough color to use: too much and it looks like you’re going for a nautical theme that may not sit well with you. Unlike traditional blues, these muted alternative shades are less aggressive, so you can feel free to use them wherever you want to add color. They are great for living areas.
If you like the earthy tones that invoke Spanish architecture, clay is the color you didn’t know you needed.
Clay invokes the terra cotta, an earth tone that goes great with many other colors like light blues and dark grays. You can use it for accent around bolder choices, such as on a backsplash or around windows.
Pastels are always popular but look for pastels that are toned down a bit. Muted choices will be misty and chalky, giving a sense of coolness and calmness.
Pastels make a great option for walls and cabinets, especially in the kitchen.
If you’re bold and want to make a quick impression, dark greens may be the way to go in 2019.
Greens invoke gardens and forest and are a great choice for dining rooms and bedrooms. Make sure you’re committed to dark green, however, because it’s a bold color that demands attention.
Now that you know some of the trending paint colors of 2019, there’s one thing left to do: start painting. You’ll love the way these color options transform your rooms and make you feel like you’re living in a new home.
