Top Paint Colors for 2014

As you ushered in the new year, you may have made various New Year’s resolutions, like exercising more or eating healthier. But what about a resolution to try a new paint color for your home? This year, the most popular colors for interior painting jobs are less about making a statement and more about letting the room  speak for itself as a whole. That’s right—subtle paint shades are here to stay in 2014.



Paint the colors of nature inside

If you’re looking to get more in touch with nature, now’s your chance. Earth tone colors, like the light yellow color of a flower, the green color of grass and dark green of a forest tree, are all popular color choices for your home this year. Seaside colors, like light brown sand and sea foam green, are also making an emergence, too. Any painting company can tell you these interior shades have made a comeback this year and will continue to rise in popularity.

A breath of fresh air

In the past, many people often opted for dark, harsher colors, or sometimes even shockingly bright colors, to paint the rooms of their homes. This year, though, lighter colors are taking center stage. Expect to see many more homes electing to use colors like lavender, light peach or cream as part of their home interiors when repainting.  These colors don’t overwhelm the look of the room, allowing you to put more focus on decorations and furniture.

How to make it work for you

When it comes to painting your home, you should of course choose the shade you think would be right for your space. This means you don’t have to exclusively choose these lighter, more natural shades for all your rooms. Instead, you can start by just painting one room, like a living room, in a more neutral color. From there, you can progress to painting your other rooms in an earth tone or more relaxed shade if you so choose.  If you decide to hire a professional painter from an interior painting company, let them know your goals for the room. Their contractors can help you decide what would look best for your rooms.
