2020 Colors of the Year

2020 Colors of the Year

We’re quickly nearing 2020 and that means paint companies are announcing their choices for color of the year. If you think about it, the colors chosen at the start of a new decade could define (think 80’s neon colors) how people look back on the 20’s.

As a professional painting company, we can’t think of a better way to head into the next decade than with a fresh coat of paint. If you’re thinking the same and don’t know what color to use, here are a few of the colors that paint companies have chosen as their colorful entry into the new decade.

Sherwin-Williams – 2020 Color of the Year – Naval

Their choice of Naval (SW 6244) creates a calm and grounding environment. According to the company it’s an easy way to add sophistication to your space no matter if your home is traditional, contemporary or modern.

You can add serenity to any space, and see suggestions on how to use this color to do it on the PPG website.
