2018 is already a taken a swing and all holidays are over, so now is the perfect time to start preparing for your spring cleaning and space refreshing.

If you want to go big this year and do more than just thorough dusting and vacuuming, you can grab a paintbrush and give your space a fresh coat of trendy color.

Since all major paint companies already announced their “colors of the year,” it’s time for you to get familiar with paint trends for 2018. So, here we go.

Black is the new white

Black has been ruling the color kingdom for quite some time now, and everything from bedrooms to kitchens and study rooms is being painted this elegant and bold color. So, this year, feel free to paint your world black, or simply reserve one accent wall for this edgy hue.

No matter how big or small you go, black is going to give your space a whole new look. You don’t have to limit black only to your walls. Floors, furniture, lighting fixtures, windows, and ceilings can all benefit from this elegant color choice.

However, keep in mind that black will not conceal, but highlight all imperfections on your walls and it fades pretty quickly in the direct sunlight. So, use only the highest-quality paints and be prepared for touchups if your paint chips at places.

Vibrant shades for sunny days

In the past, people were hesitant to use too bright shades in their interior design, but in 2018 leave your fears behind and opt for a playful and vibrant colors scheme.

Sunny yellow and invigorating lime will bring life to any space and make everyone’s day a bit brighter.

Try combining these wall colors with another trendy shade (like black or gray) to make a strong statement. Who says the interior design has to be serious all the time?

No more Mrs. Nice Pink

Another major factor many homeowners have trouble with when planning a new kitchen is deciding which appliances they want to install. Kitchen appliances come in a variety of sizes and styles, therefore choosing the right one can sometimes be tricky.

In such cases, it is best advised to get guidance from an expert. As he or she will be able to tell according to the usage of your kitchen what kind of appliances would be best suited for you and also what sizes you would require. These experts could also help in coordinating the design of the appliances along with the design of your kitchen. You could opt for a good dishwasher, microwave, cooktop, stove and various other appliances which should be changed at least once every 5 years.

Royal purple

Now that Pantone named Ultra Violet its Color of the Year, you can expect to see plenty of purples everywhere in 2018. This rich shade of purple has a lot of energy, depth, and attitude, and can bring any space to life.

However, opting for all-purple walls can be a tricky decision, but you can start with one accent wall and see where the purple takes you.

The accent wall is pretty easy to DIY, even if you have absolutely no prior experience with paint. Simply grab a brush and a roller and get to work.

Your job can be made easier with some scaffolds, so check out some companies that rent them or even buy scaffolding which is practical for your future interior and exterior renovations.

Calming blues

Since we’re all oversaturated with technology all the time, now people start cherishing moments spent without tech. You can create a sanctuary that’s tech-free in your home enriched with a casual and calming blue.

The perfect candidate for the job is “In The Moment,” Behr’s Color of the Year. The best thing about this subdued shade of blue is its ability to pair well with a variety of design styles—from coastal to modern and goes well with other soft colors. This means you don’t have to change your whole interior to create a relaxing blue haven in your home.

However, if you want to repaint your dark walls this gentle and soft blue, make sure to use a primer, otherwise, you’re risking your dark color bleeding through the topcoat.

So, put on your overalls, grab a brush and get paintin’. Your space will be trendy, but also look fresh and feel new and invigorated.
