Painting your Jacksonville home can give your home the facelift it needs to look great and make you love your home again. If you are selling your Jacksonville home, a paint job is a must on the to-do list. You’ll want to paint over the tired and personal colors you currently have on your walls and instead paint in the newest, trendiest and most-appealing colors for 2016.
Being a coastal city, the trends might be a little different in Jacksonville than they are in the rest of the country. While you don’t have to follow the coastal paint trends of turquoise or bright and tropical colors, some designers favor those colors in your Florida home.
Dark colors like black, slate gray, chocolate brown and dark plum are giving sophisticated and glamorous looks to homes. Don’t go too dark though, if you are trying to appeal to buyers. Rooms that look best dark include bathrooms and dining rooms.
Rich colors are also very popular for 2016 in Jacksonville, although they are best combined with soothing colors. Think blue and white and you’ve got the perfect mix of rich, soothing and coastal. In a kitchen with your stainless steel appliances is where you might see the best effects of this gorgeous color combination.
Organic is a buzzword on everyone’s lips and it also applies to colors. Think about golden browns, creamy oranges, muted reds and you’ll see organic colors. Using these colors will give your home a facelift it surely needs and brings it right into 2016.
Contrast is something that gives your home a bold look and using contrasting color schemes like red with bronze or copper is simply majestic. When I speak of reds, I mean terracotta, paprika or red wine, so darker, heartier reds.
If you are selling or aren’t interested in being bold or rich, there are grays and beiges that still keeping giving their all for your Jacksonville home in 2016. As long as your accent colors are bold or warm, your gray or beige walls will look fresh and inviting. As well, Benjamin Moore announced that their color of the year for 2016 is the simplest color of them all: Simply White. It can be used both as a wall color or an accent color, but it definitely works to brighten up any space. The look will be very clean, which can be extremely appealing to buyers looking to bring their own tastes into the picture.
