You are currently viewing Looking Ahead: Predictions for 2018 Painting Trends

As we usher in the new year and set our resolutions and goals, it’s also a good time to start thinking about upgrading our 2018 home design. While home renovation is not always an option for every homeowner, home painting is certainly a much more economically-friendly solution that will give your home the facelift it so desperately needs. Read on to learn which paint trends are in for 2018.

Mixing Warm & Cool Colors

Long gone are the days of fully dark interiors! This year, you’re going to find homeowners undertaking full interior painting makeovers in an effort to brighten and modernize their homes. The colors for these repaints will vary, but you will find a perfect blend of warm and cool tones in today’s home design. Back in the day, you used to have to pick between warm or cool color palettes. Now, though, you’ll find warm and cool colors playfully intertwining with each other to bring the best of best worlds.

Cool colors are your blue, green, and grey hues. These set the backdrop for a modern home. These colors bring tranquility and spa-like qualities that make you feel immediately relaxed when you enter your home after a stressful day at work. Warm colors are the red, yellow, and tan hues. These are used to invoke personality, usually through less permanent design features such as throw pillows, accent chairs, and side tables.

On the flip side, if you’re looking for a high-contrast color scheme that doesn’t overpower visitors as soon as they walk in the door, try combining your dark interiors with light, neutral furnishings to balance the home design. This look can often be found on many HGTV specials to give your home that modern, edgy, and industrial feel.

Decorative Painting Techniques Are Back

If you want your home to stand out among the rest, you can always take on the challenge of decorative home painting techniques. We’ve started to see a shift toward various techniques in 2017, and we predict an even higher turnaround for this kind of painting pop. An easy way to incorporate painting techniques without being overwhelmed includes adding accent walls featuring geometric designs, murals, or an ombre wash of color.

Honestly, the possibilities of home painting textures are endless. In 2018, we’ll see a mixture of faux finishes, marbled designs, streaking techniques, and much more as homeowners get a bit more bold with their designs. When executed well, these home painting techniques are a sure-fire way to keep your home looking fresh.
