If you're thinking of repainting in your home, you no doubt understand that home design trends could really inspire you to find a new room colour that you really love — and that makes an immediate visual impact.
When you want that extra "wow" factor in any room — or every one! — this year, you should remember that the styles are certainly moving in a number of very different directions, so it shouldn't be too difficult to find something you like among the following suggestions. To unlock some great ideas for your home, read on:
Jewel tones that sparkle
These deep, bold colours are all the rage right now, according to Good Housekeeping. And for good reason: They create an immediate, striking impression on anyone who sees them for the first time.
Natural colours for an earthy mood
Bringing a little nature into your home is never a bad idea, and so far this year, it seems as though somewhat muted earthy tones are a hit with homeowners around the world.
The rise of "greige"
For many years, grey was considered the most stylish neutral colour, but it seems as though those days are coming to an end. Porch Daydreamer explained that this is because people are increasingly finding inspiration in paints that have a little bit more beige to them but still retain some of that cool greyish energy.
A greyer shade of cool
At the same time as grey finds itself going out of style as a neutral colour, it's starting to seep into the more vibrant cool tones like blue and green that are seemingly always en vogue.
Especially when you will be repainting spaces like nurseries or the bedrooms of young kids, you will simply never be able to go wrong with a nice, calming pastel. According to HGTV, for this year in particular, warm pastels like Resene Romantic and Mandys Pink will be some of the trendiest options. These options will help make any room they adorn a warm, inviting place to relax.
Rich warm colours
Especially in rooms where you will be spending a lot of time, it's often a good idea to paint in deep, warm colours that provide a welcoming environment for everyone who enters and spends some time. Options like Resene Del Toro or Blaze can be great here, but make sure they match your current decor.
Go big and bright
Another emerging trend? Vibrant hues that really seem to jump off the wall, according to Veranda. Colours that might normally be used as accents to provide a bright pop can also work as exciting accent walls. Alternatively, if you really want to change things up, you can repaint an entire room with this kind of eye-catching shade. Something like Resene Paris Daisy or Pursuit could prove truly popular with your family and friends in 2021.
Finally, you can't go wrong with something that's going to catch the sun and brighten up a room naturally. Shades like Resene Witch Haze and Tinkerbell will be a great idea for any room that gets a lot of sunlight at certain times of day, especially if it's a living space that would normally get used at that time. Put another way, if you have a bedroom that really lights up around noon, you might not get as much use out of repainting with these tones since the odds are you won't be in there too much at that time.
