New decade, new you – and it all starts at home. If your living space needs a fresh outlook this year, revamping high-traffic rooms – like the kitchen and bathroom – is a smart place to start. From new neutrals to bold hues, these paint colour trends will make your home look (and feel) brand new.
Ride the Waves
Blue is big this year, especially when it comes to calming sea-inspired hues. Muted mixes of light and medium ocean tones pair perfectly with metallic hardware, making blue a modern choice for contemporary kitchen paint colours.
So Fresh, So Clean
Craving a clean slate in your cooking space? Opt for crisp shades of white in the kitchen for a contemporary finish that works with any combination of accent colours.
Like a Cloud
For a similar soft effect, airy greys are a go-to new neutral kitchen trend that make a surprisingly big impact. Working with a compact space? Shades of grey can be a great choice for maximizing your kitchen’s square footage, too – cool greys can help make a room appear bigger than it actually is.
Spice Things Up
As far as kitchen colours go, a zesty, bold and peppery hue like BEHR Torch Red MQ4-35 brings stylish heat to your home’s design. Eye-catching and entirely confident, a dash of red on the walls instantly satisfies your colour cravings.
Whether you’re a master home chef or a master of takeout, you’re guaranteed a lively kitchen experience with a rich, beautifully saturated shade of green serving contrast to dark kitchen cabinets. Like the three shades of green included in Behr’s 2020 Colour Trends palette, BEHR Free Green M420-5 is the perfect marriage of statement-making and sophisticated.
If your bathroom is your zen place, a soft, soothing green-grey hue creates an instant sense of calm and relaxation – particularly when paired with light-tone woods and white. Nature-inspired shades are a gentle way to revamp the bathroom.
Take on Teal
This rich spin on teal brings a luxe feel to the bathroom, working beautifully with both contemporary and classic aesthetics – particularly in a spacious bathroom with bright-white accents.
It’s no surprise that classic blue works wonders as a bathroom colour: this dramatic, deep shade brings calm, confidence and character to any space in your home.
Bright, beautiful and abundantly elegant, dessert-inspired peaches and creams bring an airy feel and easy refinement to the bathroom. A creamsicle-orange shade gets bonus chic points when matched with crisp white accents. A definite bathroom trend for years to come.
Lavender and lilac florals smell heavenly – and they make for supremely dreamy selections as colours on your bathroom walls. Soft purple shades make a big impact without being overly dramatic, offering a statement-making effect that still feels soft and light.
