Five Paint Trends We’ll Be Trying in 2024

With 2024 upon us, the world of interior design is buzzing with anticipation for the new trends that will define our spaces. Among the most transformative elements in any decorator’s toolkit is paint. This year, we’re seeing a shift towards innovative uses of colour, texture, and technique that guarantee to breathe new life into our homes. Below, we’ll explore five exciting paint trends that are making waves in 2024.

1. Pops of red: Incorporating pops of red into your home decor is a fantastic way to inject energy and warmth into any space. Whether it’s through a statement piece of furniture, striking wall art, or subtle accents like cushions and throws, red can transform the mood of a room from mundane to magnificent. The beauty of this trend lies in its versatility; red complements a wide range of colour schemes, from monochromatic to eclectic mixes, adding depth and interest. As we see more individuals gravitating towards personal expression in their interiors, the inclusion of red accents is a powerful tool in crafting a home that is both contemporary and rich in personality. To get the look, try our shades Velvetine and Rhubarb Rose.

2. Bold Monochromatics: Monochrome isn’t a new trend, but the boldness with which it’s being applied in 2024 certainly is. This trend sees rooms painted in a single shade, including the trim, doors, and sometimes even the ceiling. The key to making this look work is choosing a colour with enough depth and intensity to stand on its own. It’s also essential to incorporate different textures into the space to add interest and dimension. Deep blues, vibrant greens, and even rich yellows are some of our favourites for creating immersive spaces that are anything but dull. This daring use of colour adds a dramatic flair and character to any room.

3. Dusty pink: Dusty Pinks are subtle yet impactful, bringing a sense of calm and warmth to any space. We especially love this colour in the bedroom, living room, or bathroom.  Think of this as a new neutral: its versatility means it pairs beautifully with a wide range of hues, offering endless styling possibilities. Whether used as a statement wall, incorporated into textiles, or as an accent in decorative accessories, dusty pink is poised to dominate the interior design scene, proving that soft colours can make a powerful statement. If you’d like to embrace this colour, we recommend our shades Hand Crafted, Pashmina, or Powdered Clay.

4. Sustainable and healthier paints: Sustainability continues to be a priority for consumers, and paint trends in 2024 reflect this shift. We’re seeing a rise in the popularity of eco-friendly paints, characterised by low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) levels and environmentally friendly ingredients. These paints not only contribute to a healthier indoor air quality but also have a lower environmental impact. Our walls & ceilings matt and silk emulsion range uses carefully selected Vegan Verified ingredients along with our unique breatheasy® 99% solvent free formulation to offer you the confidence to decorate your home safely. Limiting exposure to airborne triggers of asthma and allergy, it helps create a healthier space for your whole family.  And we’re pushing what’s possible even further with packaging made using 100% recycled plastic.

5. Textured paint finishes: Textured paint finishes are being embraced in a big way in 2024. From subtle brush strokes that add depth to a wall, to more tactile finishes, textured paint is a great way to ad interest and dimension to interiors. This trend is particularly appealing because it offers a unique way to add interest to a space without overwhelming it with colour or pattern. Our CRAFTED™ by Crown Luxurious suede Textured Matt Emulsion provides an enriching, suede textured finish that creates a soft, natural brushed effect on your walls. In 2024, we’ll be experimenting with different application techniques and materials to create walls that beg to be touched.

The future of interior design is bright—and colourful! This year’s trends offer something for every taste and style. If you’re eager to start your next paint project, call into your local Crown Paints retailer for everything you need!
