Colour can have a profound impact on the way a room feels, and your mood.
Like in so many other aspects of modern life, it’s easy for homeowners to be overwhelmed by the sheer range of choice available when it comes to home décor and renovation.
So to help you make your decision, we’ve compiled a list of some of the colours experts believe will be on the rise in the new year ahead. With any luck, you’ll be able to use some of them to add visual appeal to your home.
In recent years, we’ve seen the popularity of colours like Chartwell Green and Anthracite Grey soar.
What shades are set to take the UK’s home improvement market by storm in 2023? The honest answer, of course, is we don’t know. No-one can look into the future.
But there are trend-setters, opinion-shapers, and interior design experts who we can look to for some valuable insight on what might lie ahead.
Paint company Dulux, for instance, have always helped shape fashion with their much-anticipated colour of the year.
In 2022, that colour was Bright Skies – an airy sky blue, designed to create a relaxed, refreshing vibe, and was perfect for rooms flooded with natural light.
For 2023, they’ve chosen what they call Wild Wonder – a pale, yellow, earthy shade with a sense of elegance and restraint, and developed four new colour palettes to accompany it, containing an array of neutral tones, beige, pastel tones, and dusky pinks.
Given the huge prominence of Dulux, it’s likely that these colours will be highly popular throughout 2023.
A number of other leading trend-setters in the world of home improvements are bringing out new shades of red.
Pantone describes its Viva Magenta as an “unconventional shade for an unconventional time”. Graham & Brown’s colour of the year is Alizarin, an auburn red warm hue.
Similarly, global paint specialists Benjamin Moore have unveiled Raspberry Blush, a lively orange-red.
2023 will also see an influx of new green shades, inspired by the natural world.
Paint company Krylon has launched Spanish Moss, a dark, leafy colour that evokes the feel of forests and, as you’d expect, mossy terrain. Similarly, Glidden Paint has released Vining Ivy – a tranquil, blue-green colour that again brings a natural soothing feel to interiors.
When selecting window and door colours for your home, there are a number of design trends to consider.
White, grey, and black window frames are great options for opening up a space. If you’re looking for a pop of colour, then bold hues like red, yellow, and teal can add a vibrant contrast to your walls.
The new trend of earthy tones such as brown, green, and blue can also add warmth and character to a room. Furthermore, metallic finishes like gold, copper, and silver can add shimmer and shine.
Regardless of the colour palette you choose, the overall design scheme of your home should obviously be considered very carefully.
For example, if your living room is painted in soft pastels shades, adding bright pink window frames may not be the best choice. Consider what will look the best in the space while still being suitable for the design style of your home.
