Best Paint Colors to Try This Holiday Season That Look Great Year-Round

Freshening up the house with a new coat of paint is a great way to get your home ready for holiday guests and entertaining. And the warm, beautiful colors of the holiday season can serve as your inspiration. Here are some of our favorite holiday colors that look great year round and some ideas for creative interior painting that will get you beautiful results.

Paint Colors That Look Great for the Holidays and Year Round

Whites, Grays, and Silvers

Many people choose neutrals (white, taupe, silver, or gray) as part of their pre-holiday paint refresh. Neutral colors coordinate well with any decor or furnishings but call to mind the bright whites and snowy silvers of winter during the holidays. You can use these colors anywhere, but they work especially well in kitchens and bathrooms, including cabinet painting. You want these areas to look bright, fresh, and clean, and neutral paint colors are a great way to do that.

Warming Natural Shades

Shades of yellow, light green, or beige make a room feel warmer and are a lovely, grounding contrast to many cool, bright holiday colors you're using for holiday decorations. Using these colors for wall and ceiling painting will also be a great compliment to natural spring colors and the summer sun as the seasons change. Our team of interior painting contractors has seen beautiful results from these colors in living and dining rooms, hallways, and entryways, and they're a great way to bring color into your kitchen or bathroom cabinets.

Darker Reds and Greens

Red and green are favorite holiday colors that can give your home a bold, festive look no matter the time of year. Green has a calming, comforting effect for many, which makes it a great fit for sunrooms, offices, and crafting or reading rooms. Reds are romantic colors and are great for bedroom walls. They can also make a fun statement as an accent wall where you want to highlight a favorite furnishing or showcase a remarkable piece of artwork.

Holiday Painting and Home Improvement Tips

This is an exciting time to paint your home and wow your friends, neighbors, and visitors with an interior transformation that will shine as part of the backdrop to your priceless memories and beautiful holiday decorations. Once you've chosen colors you want to feature and rooms you want to paint, here's what we suggest for getting the most out of your painting project.

  • Plan Ahead: Early to mid fall is an ideal time to schedule interior painting services. This gives any local house painters you work with the chance to plan all projects you need for your home to look its best and gives the team time to get familiar with your timeline, budget, and vision.

  • Don't Cut Corners: It's tempting to paint rooms yourself, but prepping for a painting project, including clearing the room, prepping the surfaces, making surface/drywall repairs, and applying primer, paint, and finishes, requires the utmost precision to get a seamless finish you'll love for years to come.

  • Invest in the Best: Think of pre-holiday painting as an investment in your home. Choose timeless colors, resilient finishes, and appealing color combinations to add value to your home and make every room as inviting as possible, no matter the season. And work with a team you can trust to get it done to the highest standards of craftsmanship and on-the-job safety.

  • Think About Your Exterior: Exterior painting is a great idea if you've noticed popping, peeling, or chipping paint, and many of the holiday colors you love will make a beautiful home exterior. If you want to kick off the new year with a home that's like new too, these services may be a great addition to your fall painting plans.
