Not only does painting your house help it look good, but it’s also a great way to protect your walls and exterior. Help your home look great by staying up to date on house painting trends.
If the paint in your room is chipped or you’re tired of looking at the same shade, it’s time to update your home. Plus it’s a great excuse to redecorate and spruce up the room for spring.
Here are the 5 most popular painting trends hitting houses this year.
1. Contrast the Trim
The first trend, we’ve seen in recent years, are people contrasting the trim of their house with the wall. This gives your home a little bit more of an interest value, and when complementary colours are chosen can feel more put together.
This is a great option for both the interior and the exterior of the home. In fact, you’ll often see people changing the outside trim or door of their house to a darker shade.
2. A Dramatic Colour for Dramatic Rooms
Another option is to update your paint is to add a dramatic colour to rooms that aren’t used as much. These could be used for dining rooms, libraries, etc. The dramatic colour will wow your guests but it won’t overwhelm you.
Check out our guide on how to choose the best colours for your home.
3. Be Neutral
While a dramatic colour may look good in your “fancier” rooms, a neutral colour is best for those rooms that are used every day.
Adding neutral shades into your rooms, allow you decorate them however you want. You won’t have to worry about seasonal decorations changing, because neutral shades work with nearly everything.
Plus there are some great positive effects associated with these lighter colours.
4. Stay Solid
This year, stencils and patterns are out. Avoid adding these extra steps to your walls. Instead, keep it simple by adding one solid colour.
Not only will this save you money and time, but let’s be honest, it’s going to look much better as well.
Here are the trendy paint colours you can experiment with at your home.
5. Change Up the Exterior
The biggest change in the house painting market is the emphasis on the exterior of the house. It’s about time the exterior gets some love. With all of the cold snow and rain, our houses get a beating.
It’s recommended that you repaint your exterior every couple of years. It will help improve the resell value and protect your home as well.
