Are you ready to update your bedroom for the new year? Luckily, you don’t have to redo your entire room to get a new look. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders to change the style and feel of a bedroom, making it an easy and affordable option for homeowners. Before you head to the local paint store, however, you may want to get a sense of what paint colors top interior designers recommend for 2020. Here are some paint ideas you can incorporate in your bedroom for the latest trend or a modern take on a timeless classic.
The top paint companies have released their colors of the year for 2020, and most of them fall on the blue end of the spectrum. Shades such as classic blue and navy are making a move into bedrooms, especially if your space has lots of natural light during the day. Blue, lavender, and green, which are considered cool colors, can create a peaceful feeling, making it a restful option for a bedroom, and the darker versions of these colors can add a coziness that you may not get with brighter, warmer shades, which tend to be more energizing.
Down to Earth
Interior designers Malibu are bringing earthy colors back to reflect homeowners’ desires to have a grounded space where they can relax. Instead of the cool gray, black, or stark white tones, they may integrate warmer shades of sand, tan, rust, and brown to create a natural vibe in bedrooms that adds dimension without overwhelming a space. Burnt orange is another popular color that works better in a small space or as an accent rather than an all-over paint for the whole room.
With minimalism and Scandinavian influences still big trendsetters, neutrals continue to reign supreme as a popular choice with homeowners. The best neutral bedroom colors can be a subtle variation of white or cream, and soft pastels are making a play as an updated interpretation of neutral. In coastal homes, you may see delicate shades of sea glass green or the palest of sky blue on bedroom walls. Another chic pastel is blush, which takes its inspiration from millennial pink and rose gold that have been big in recent years.
Run the Jewels
Jewel tones, such as peacock blue, hunter green, burgundy, and topaz brown may seem to buck the neutral trend, but they do bring a sense of luxury, sophistication, and a touch of masculinity to bedrooms. Like the deeper blues that are leading the 2020 pack, these rich hues work well with natural light to balance them out.
A Rainbow of Choices
With this year’s color palette comes more variety, personality, and individuality to bedroom design. Homeowners have more options than ever to make their rooms feel less like showrooms and more like their own retreats. The best part about new paint is that you can always go for a different shade when you grow tired of your current color, without a lot of hassle or expense. If you would like to see more colors that are trending for 2020, talk with a professional interior designer who can help you narrow down your choices.
