Whether you’re planning a major remodel of your entire living space or just remodeling a bathroom, color is a big element. One of the many reasons people undergo a home remodeling project is because of dated colors. Every year paint manufacturers announce their color of the year. This year many of the colors are earth tones which are perfect if you want a spa-like feel in your bathroom or a kitchen in harmony with the outside. If you’re unsure what color or color pallet you want, here are some suggestions for some of the most common areas homeowners remodel.
Many home remodeling projects start in the kitchen. It’s the heart of the home and should feel comfortable. Because it’s also adjacent to dining rooms and often part of an open concept living space, you want the colors in your kitchen to work with other parts of your home. Here are some color pallets that are inspired by the colors of the year of various paint manufacturers based on popular cabinet finishes:
- White – White cabinets go with just about everything; however, you don’t want the space to be too light. You might want to choose a countertop with greys or tans and finish the walls with Sherwin Williams Color of the Year, Naval.
- Natural Wood – The type of wood or finish on the wood will influence what colors you want with to compliment the wood cabinets. If yours have more red in them, consider pinks and rose tones for the walls. Benjamin Moore’s First Light, part of their 2020 Color Trends is a great option. If your cabinets are more yellow, Behr’s Back to Nature is a soothing color perfect for your walls.
- Grey – Grey cabinets are still trending and depending on the shade of grey you choose; you can go with just about any color pallet. One of the best things about choosing grey cabinets is the wide range of colors that can make them pop. Valspar’s 2020 color pallet includes Secluded Garden which compliments virtually any shade of grey.
Many homeowners take their bathroom remodeling color inspiration from how they’d like the space to feel. If bright and energetic is what you’re looking for in your bath, consider Blue Danube from Benjamin Moore to inspire the rest of your design. If relaxing and spa like is your main goal, Benjamin Moore also has Windmill Wings and Crystalline for inspiration.
