2016’s Paint and Color Trends

2016 has proven to trail blaze some excellent and very popular home design trends. Inspiration comes from lots of places, so the crew at Handyman Connection of McKinney will share some popular paint and color trends based on current home design trends.

Soft, Subtle, and Pale

A fun, vibrant room can come to life without being too overpowering through the incorporation of subtle, pale toned colors. The fun part about this trend is that almost any color can work with this theme.  Choose a bolder color for accents such as furniture, paintings, or other featured items, and in turn, choose a much lighter shade of your featured accent color. This is a very common and simple way to incorporate colors into your room, while creating a unique, vibrant, yet not overwhelming design.

White and Grey

The light and airy theme in bedrooms or kitchens has become an extremely popular, beautiful, and elegant theme. This concept can be brought to life by keeping the paint colors in the room as such: light and airy. That’s why surprisingly enough; whites and light greys are a popular trend. You can accent a white wall with another shade of white elsewhere in the room, and the same concept can be applied with grey tones. It’s not necessarily a new trend, but it’s one that’s here to stay.

Earthy and Natural

Beautiful earthy and natural colored tones are another popular trend. You’ll notice these color pallets in farmhouse or modern style homes as it creates a rustic, cabin style of theme throughout. These colors can include deep browns, forest greens, and colors that compliment iron and stained woods. This is a great option to incorporate into your home if you’re looking to change up the look of a room without having to change the furniture and accent pieces.

Decorative and Accents

The last theme that the crew at Handyman Connection of McKinney would like to feature is the decorative and accent-centric theme. These colors and paints include those such as metallic, textured paints and wallpapers, chalk paint, and colors painted in patterns. Many homes have begun to incorporate featured accent walls with painted patterns. This is a great and fairly inexpensive way to really bring a room to life and make a statement. Textured paints are also very popular as it can create a great feel throughout the room. Depending on the style of your home and maybe the amount of kids that are around, chalk paint is a great option for kitchens or bathrooms to leave fun notes or to create your own decoration.

The crew at Handyman Connection of McKinney is here to help with any and all of your home maintenance needs, including painting services.
