- It’s easy to get caught up in trends, but certain colors are timeless and will always look fresh.
- Learn more about trend-proof paint palettes and what to select when a classic theme is your goal.
When repainting your home, trending house colors may catch your eye. But how can you be sure these trendy paint colors will provide lasting beauty and won’t lead to a new paint project sooner than it’s really needed?
This is why many homeowners choose to stick to practicality when it comes to color palettes and paint colors. Trendy shades are fun in the short term, but timeless shades are a better investment in the long run. Practical paint colors are also important to keep in mind if you’re thinking of selling your home within the next few years. And remember – timeless paint colors are just as stylish as those in trend.
“Whether we’re talking exterior paint colors, bedroom paint colors or living room paint colors, it’s important to consider your home’s life stage and your goals – not simply the color palette,” advises Rebecca Scott, marketing manager for CertaPro Painters® of Lexington, KY, “Traditional colors still provide a wide range of options and variations. Small variances in shade and hue can bring more life to your living space.”
Picking the perfect paint color for your home can be a daunting task. At CertaPro Painters®, we make the process easier by offering trendy, yet timeless paint colors.
Gray Paint Color Options
Moving into the gray tones, there are a ton of options that roam far from plain. If your room needs a deep yet understated hue, try Light French Gray (SW 0055). Gray paints can also be quite complex, such as Oyster Bay (SW 6206), with cooler touches that resemble the paint colors blue or green. For a more straightforward gray, consider steel gray or stone gray paint colors, both great options with levels of complexity in the hue.
White Interior Paint Colors
White colors don’t always mean simple or basic. There are a wide array of white-toned paint options, far more than just eggshell or off white. Alabaster (SW 7008) offers a classic, regal feel, while extra white paint can allow a bright and cheery touch. If you want something slightly more simple, but still a step above plain white, opt for an antique white paint.
If you have colorful art or a lot of wall decor, opting for a white or Creamy (SW 7012) may be your best bet. The blank background will serve as a canvas to allow these pieces to stand out.
Beige and Tan Paint Colors
If you’re looking for a neutral shade that’s slightly more exciting than white, consider a taupe color palette. Beiges, grays and tans are muted, but the perfect colors for anyone searching for versatile and unassuming shades.
There’s a wide range of tones in this family based on your preferences and decor element. You can choose a cool neutral palette by using colors such as Sherwin Williams’ Perfect Greige (SW 6073), or you can warm up a room with softer tans like the shade China Doll (SW 7517). You can also put some of these colors together for a more interesting, modern approach – try two contrasting shades like Foothills (SW 7514) and Loggia (SW 7506).
Rich Home Color Schemes
A common misconception about timeless shades is that they are all neutrals, while in fact, so many colorful hues can withstand the test of time.
A calming navy tone is a classic that never goes out of style. And although it’s a bold, powerful color, it’s still versatile. Consider pulling in whites, creams, or beiges for a serene atmosphere. Navy colors can be used to create a nautical theme if you’re interested in the sea, boating or sailing. A deep blue can also serve as the perfect kitchen paint color, as its clean, classic properties anchor the many different materials throughout the room, from the cabinets to the appliances and countertops.
Incorporating the saturated colors of nature into your home’s interior can make for a tranquil feeling similar to what many experience when immersed in nature. Earthy tones like deep, garden greens or a rich, dark browns can bring the lush outdoors inside your home. This color palette often plays well in rooms with large, open windows that have sweeping views of trees, fields or gardens.
