2021 Colours of the Year

Colour of the year 2021

Colour of the year 2021

It’s the time of the year where leading paint companies such as Dulux, Pantone and Benjamin Moore & Co promote their colour trends for 2021, making their choices of colours which best represent the current mood, taking influences from fashion, architecture and pop culture.

Colourists and interior designers take lots of interest in these selections as they stay on top of the current trends and ensure that they are promoting the most popular shades.

Today, home improvement trends also follow these patterns in real time. Looking back over the colour of the year selections for the past decade shows the wide spectrum of colours which have come in and out of fashion.

What are the colour companies saying in 2021?

Despite the colour of the year choices all being quite different, the one thing which is common throughout is the warmth of these colours.

Benjamin Moore & Co chose Aegean Teal as their colour of the year for 2021, a blue shade which radiates warmth and wellbeing. Dulux opted for the earthy tones of Brave Ground for their chosen colour of 2021 – a warm brown which brings a natural feeling of stability to homes.

Leading American paint company Behr followed the similar earthy tones of Dulux with their choice of Canyon Dusk. It is a terracotta-style pink with a more natural touch to make it easier for neutrals to get on board with the pink trend. For only the second time, Pantone shared the colour of the year between two colours: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. They complement each other and combine the durable stability of the grey with the sunny and welcoming yellow, to create a stunning combination.

How does this affect the glazing industry?

These trends translate to the glazing industry too. Gone are the days where homeowners settled for plain white and standard door colours, with more people deciding to add colour to their windows and doors, transforming the exterior aesthetics of their property.

Darker tones and especially greys have ruled the roost when it comes to window and door colour options, as they add a contemporary touch to any property, complementing both traditional brickwork as well as the popular modern white rendered properties.

Now though, there is a shift away from these cold colours in both windows and doors, which has been made clear with the colour of the year choices for 2021.

We’ve seen subtle changes in the windows and doors market when it comes to colour as more homeowners experiment with the appearance of their home. Grey still dominates, but the incoming trends suggest that people are looking to liven things up a little as we will see warmer greys for windows and splashes of colour for doors.

What are the growing trends for doors in 2021?

The entrance door is the first thing people see when entering a property, which is why so many homeowners take pride in the appearance of their front door. I’m sure you’ve walked past plenty of Anthracite Grey doors recently – a trend which has become increasingly popular over the past few years. But throughout 2021 we expect to see more experimentation and colour confidence when it comes to entrances, with brighter colours increasing in popularity for homeowners looking for a real ‘pop’ of colour for their home.

Pinks, pale blues and yellows are the colours of choice for homeowners looking to make a statement in 2021. One of Pantone’s Colours of the Year for 2021, Illuminating Yellow, fits in perfectly with this trend and would make a great addition to the front of someone’s home. The friendly and relaxed shade is a perfect way to set the tone for visitors coming into the home.

Bright and vibrant colours are more popular than ever for doors and RegaLead offers a wide range of shades, allowing you to give your customers what they want.

This new trend comes as no surprise to us, as when we post these kind of door colours to Facebook and Instagram, they tend to be very popular, getting plenty of likes and engagement.

What are the growing trends for windows in 2021?

Whereas people can be bolder with their entrance door colours, for windows, consumers are much more conservative with their colour choices. The growing trend in the industry is a shift from cold tones to warmer shades. The colder colours which have dominated the glazing and home improvement industry in recent years, like the Anthracite Greys and Matt Blacks, are now being replaced by warmer options, taking influence from greige – a mix of grey and beige which adds a warmer touch to the classic grey colours. Pantone’s second 2021 Colour of the Year winner, Ultimate Gray, and Dulux’s colour of the year, Brave Ground, showcases this trend shift, with the earthy tones providing real warmth.

The two Pantone colours of the year were chosen together for the way they complement each other in what they describe as “a marriage of colour conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.” Why not offer this combination to your customers? Our warmer tones of Agate and Pebble Greys follow the Ultimate Gray influence and would be the perfect option to add to your colour range, allowing you to offer warmer tones to your customers.

Moving through 2021 and into 2022, we expect to see these new trends become more prominent in the glazing industry, with a move towards warmer shades for windows and brighter colours for doors. However, it could be a while before we see a move away from the grey shades, which continue to dominate home improvement trends.
