The forecast for this year is for the Wall Color Forecast to be neutral for the next several months, which includes color changes throughout the year, weather influences, temperature changes, and holiday themes. As the transition to spring begins, there will be the last few weeks of December with low temperatures in the 50s and a slight shift to warmer weather. The mid-January period will see a return to cooler temperatures as will the first days of February.
Gradually the neutral color that we are accustomed to seeing will shift toward a warmer tone. This is followed by an upward swing in temperatures to be consistently around or slightly above 70 degrees through much of March.
Depending on where you live, you may even see the 2020 Paint Color Forecast as late as June. During this warmer period, homes are generally painted in a warm and neutral hue, the color of nature itself. Cooler weather and possible showers will be more prevalent from early to mid-July through the entire summer.
Of course, the ideal temperatures for painting a home are a warm neutral wall color. The dark gray that was the original colors for paints during the New Deal era is becoming the favored choice. The reason for this is the ability to produce wall colors that are easy to match up with existing decor and themes, as well as being versatile with both warm and cool tones.
Over the past year, most architects have seen a need to use wall color schemes that reflect a unique vision of their homes. To make it simple, it is more visually appealing to paint walls in dark gray as opposed to a warm neutral palette.
If you prefer a warm neutral wall color, then look for an existing paint color that can easily be altered. For example, if you’re wanting to change the way your master bedroom accent wallis painted, then start with a rich and warm accent wall paint. It can be an opalescent brick color or a cherry shade.
Regardless of your preference, you’ll want to keep the base color as is and change just the accent wall color if needed. With many homeowners doing a wall re-paint, the end result will likely be a wall that feels warmer and more inviting, with the room feeling more open and bright. If you choose the darker room finish and accent wall color, you’ll also have the ability to express that feeling through different paint colors.
Wall paint colors will vary depending on your room and personal taste. Make sure that you consider the ultimate purpose of the room when you begin your project.
