With spring sneaking up on us, you probably have a long list for spring cleaning. Something you might not have considered is spring painting. Giving your home a new coat of paint can bring new life to a space that may have seemed worn-out. (And if you’re looking for professional painting services in Hampton Roads, call Power House at 757-310-2926).
Just like we open our windows to let in fresh air once the weather warms, you can also freshen your home’s color pallet. This year is focusing more on how our digital world affects our lives at home. In 2018 trends tended toward bold colors that could make a space pop – like bright reds and strong blues. However, 2019 is all about taking a break from the screen, reconnecting with nature, and getting good vibes into your home. Here are some of the up and coming 2019 spring paint trends to give you some ideas on how you can bring a fresh look into your home. As always, Power House is always here for all your painting services needs!
INTO THE WOODS
Earthy browns, greys, and greens will infiltrate 2019 spring paint trends this year in an effort to remind us of nature. Natural wood patterns will be popular, so focus on bringing more natural hues into your home. Studies have shown that spending time outdoors, in nature, is not only relaxing, but good for your physical and mental health. While we can’t necessarily bring the great outdoors inside our homes, we can mimic their calming colors.
Coral generally refers to hues that range from orange to pink. Think creamsicles and summer sunsets. This color scheme provides a range of hues that can help create an uplifting and optimistic environment. Coral is a great option if you have a space that doesn’t have a lot of natural light, or if there are no windows.
Green is an awesome color to work with because there is such a wide range to choose from. In this case, 2019 spring paint trends are pointing toward the darker end of the spectrum, with hunter green as a popular option. It is a sultry color that can easily transition throughout your house, whether you are pairing it with natural wood tones or bright whites. Another great feature about this hue is it’s gender neutrality. It isn’t viewed as a masculine or feminine color so it can work well in any room – whether it’s your husband’s man cave or your wife’s make-up area.
DARK AND MOODY
Along with hunter green comes a slew of colors that are on the darker end of the spectrum and they are very popular this year. By pairing these dark colors with custom woodwork or lighter cabinetry, you can create muted tones that create a relaxing environment. If you choose to go with a darker color, it usually works best with lots of natural light. This allows you to appreciate the true color.
Although pink has been thought of as “too feminine” in the past, it is making a comeback in 2019 spring paint trends. A light, subtle pink can pair well with many different colors, especially whites and lemony yellows. It can remind you of an early sunrise or the pink sand tones found in the desert.
Another nod toward Mother Nature has been captured in this year’s trend toward misty blues. With grey or purple undertones, these blues help to bring a feeling of calm into a space. They pair well with a variety of other colors, such as stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, or clean whites in the bathroom.
Yellow has always been related to feelings of happiness and optimism and 2019 will be bringing that back into popularity. The color of sunshine can immediately brighten a room, or it can be used as an accent color to balance darker tones, such as navy or grey.
No matter what tones you choose to go with, adding new color to your home can quickly transform a space into something more fun, welcoming, and fresh. This is also a great idea to think about if you plan on putting your home on the market. A fresh coat of paint can invite potential buyers into a space and make them feel good.
