If a new coat of paint is part of your plan for 2021, choosing the right color will be the first step. Each year, paint designers release their top colors for the year. From browns to jewel tones, these are the hottest colors for your 2021 paint job.

1. Deep Browns

Deep browns are making a comeback, and not just for furniture and flooring. Many homes are using deep browns to paint a wall or two as well. Be cautious with this color, because it can make a space feel darker and confined, but as an accent, it can add depth to the home.

2. Rich Jewel Tones

Rich jewel tones, like teals and purples, are going to be hot in 2021. They can add personality and color to the space quickly. Accent with brighter tones in other areas of the home to make the space attractive and colorful.

3. Blush as a Neutral

Blush is not a new trend, but it has grown so popular it is now considered a neutral. In places where white once reigned supreme, designers in 2021 are often turning to a blush instead. For those who want a little more color than neutral blush, apricot is a popular color trend for the year.

4. Light Blues and Greens

Light blues and greens are going to be a hot color choice for 2021. In fact, wood stain brand Minwax selected its Vintage Blue as the 2021 color of the year. This blue and green mixture as a wood stain will perfectly complement a sea-foam green wall. Muddy greens were a trend embraced by many paint designers this year.

5. Warm, Earthy Tones

Warm, earthy tones are making a comeback in 2021. Yellows, oranges, browns, tans, and even reds are part of this year’s color palette. Even the grays that are popular in 2021 are taking a warm vibe.

6. Granite and Gray

Gray is not a new color trend, but it will remain a top choice for 2021. Granite is a good neutral to consider if you like gray. It matches both cool and warm tones, making it a good choice no matter what your decor scheme is.

As you look forward to new memories and experiences in 2021, consider adding a new coat of paint. It will refresh your home and improve its aesthetics. By embracing these color trends, you can have a home that is aesthetically appealing and beautiful.
