2019 Colour trends to refresh your client's home
It's amazing how a different colour can dramatically change the look of a home, whether it's new siding or indoor paint. With housing starts predicted to be down in 2019, renos will be heating up and your clients will want to invest in their home to enjoy for years to come. Here are the top trends in colour that your clients will be asking for or better yet that you can recommend.
Trends for exterior siding colours:
This year's colour trends reflect the current push towards darker, richer shades like cobalt blue, darker greys, deep russet reds, as well as natural hues like forest green.
Create a dramatic look by using siding colours that contrast each other, like black and white. Styles are evolving and homeowners want more dynamic colours on their home's exterior in 2019.
A cool tool by Kaycan allows you to show your client what the siding will look like on their home before committing to their colour choices.
Trends for interior paint colours:
For the past 20 years Pantone has announced a “Colour of the Year” and 2019's colour is called Living Coral. According to Pantone's website “Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing colour that appears in our natural surroundings…”
You can add this vibrant colour as a feature wall in your client's home or they may want to use it as an accent with a complimentary colour on the wall instead – think blues or grey blues. Explore what colours will look best with your client using another online tool like the Try-on-Colours by Sherwin Williams.
Colour remains one of the easiest ways to have a huge impact on the look and feel of a home inside and out!
