Taking our last blog on 2018 interior color trends a step further, we introduce perhaps the most popular trend thus far: dark room color. Painting is always one of the easiest ways to enhance the look of your home. The latest and most popular paint trend this year is dark room color walls. Applying varying shades of rich, deep colors like navy, gray and black have been slowly changing the minds of designers and homeowners.
Darker colors can create a bold, dramatic atmosphere for rooms that crave impact. Depending on the size of your room you can create a warm and cozy feeling with a dark room color on the walls. For years, people assumed that darker colors would be too depressing or gloomy, but now they’ve become a classic choice for all kinds of rooms.
Contrasting color in a room is the best way to integrate darker colors. Darker colors are best for rooms where you can add brighter and more dramatic home décor. You can create a harmonious look when the walls are dark and the other elements (like window treatments and furniture) are light-colored or white to create a pop of color against the dark wall.
If there are rooms in your home with distinct, architectural details – those rooms are the best choice for a darker color palette. Unique moldings, wood trim, ceiling medallions and other accents will provide dimension and impact against the dark room color. Using a glossy finish on these architectural details will also add flare.
There are hundreds of dark colors out there to choose from, but the best way to embrace darker colors is to consult with a painting professional.
