Custom Cabinets Picayune | Wall Color Fads

Good morning faithful readers of Custom Cabinets Picayune. You all may be few and far between, but Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring appreciate your loyalty. After all, what would any business be without their customers? Exactly, nothing but pure sad silence. It is the sixth of February and South Mississippi is experiencing dreariness and rain. Surprised? Neither are we. What are rainy days but the precursor to lovely days of sunshine. We would never appreciate the sunshine or the rain if we never experienced the opposition. Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring is a business of positivism.

Wall Color Fads 2019

In our previous articles in Custom Cabinets Picayune we have been discussing themes and how home owners can effectively employ them in their homes. Today, however, we are going to take a break from our discussion on themes and talk about wall colors of the new year. Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring has their predictions of the new seasons wall colors for residential and commercial buildings. Fads change with the seasons so why not get a head start for the spring colors? Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring can point you in the right direction with our helpful suggestions and predictions.

Ease of Color Changes

One of the easiest and most effective ways to give a room a makeover without breaking your bank is changing the wall color. Just a simple switch of wall color can do wonders from a drab room. Or maybe you are just plain sick staring at the same color for so many years and are in desperate need of a change. Perhaps your wall color is out of date for the new season’s fads? You are just steps and a few dollars away from giving your room an instant face lift. Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring suggest swinging by Charlie’s Custom Colors in Picayune for all your painting needs.

Striking Neutrals

One of this year’s fads is striking neutrals. For all of our customers who don’t want to add too much craziness to their home, but still want a statement color, striking neutrals are going to be the best way for you to go. What are striking neutrals? Apart from the traditional neutrals such as whites, beiges, tans, and browns, this year we are going to be seeing a shift to more of the dark side. Navy, plum, greys, blacks–all of these will be big in the striking neutral family this season.


Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring has written several articles on the neutral navy. Navy has been a hit so far for the previous season. Like with all neutrals we advise our customers to be careful if they are not leaning towards the nautical theme to watch how much navy they incorporate into the room that is being remodeled. However, if this isn’t a concern, then navy your heart away! When added with soft pastels navy can give a room a soft and eye relaxing feel as well as add a subtle hint of femininity.


A color that most people would not consider a neutral is plum. Plum is a stretch from navy while keeping within the same cool palate family. Although plum isn’t as strong of a neutral as our greys and navys, it is still considered to have neutral properties. This means that it is a neutral for a cool palate. There are some colors from a warm palate that will work, but not all of them. Some examples for a plum neutral wall color is mixing other neutrals as base colors for a room, for instance plum and navy. Light pastels from a cool palate will work with this as well.


One of last year’s largest hits that is slipping into this year’s continuing fads is grey. Grey is everywhere, from hair color to front doors. Grey is a neutral that can go with anything, including other neutrals. It is calming to the mind as well as the body. Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring does however suggest that if grey is your main color to make sure to accent this color with brighter decor to prevent your room from becoming too drab, unless that is the look you are going for.


A striking and unconventional neutral is black. Unlike the other neutrals black is the most dangerous when trying to create a specific look. Contrary to popular belief, black is actually a combination of all colors which is why it is one of the strongest colors. It will easily take over your room. Make sure when making black your wall color to use it sparingly. Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring suggest that using black as an accent wall would be best in most homes and rooms. Lighter neutrals will go with this strong color as well as other brighter and lighter colors.

Commercial Buildings

As far as business wall colors, neutrals seem to be the best way to go. They are the least offensive to human senses and create a calming effect which in the majority of businesses this is the goal, unless you are a fitness trainer. Greys and Navys would be the first selection for commercial neutrals. Depending on the line of business, blacks and plums may be too harsh of neutrals. However, they can still work. With some thought and strategics any neutral can work in a business. Some will take more effort to pull off effectively.
