Colours To Watch Out For in 2024


Trends come and go with all aspects of design, and each year it’s interesting to see what the predictions are for the coming year. When it comes to commercial spaces, like offices, shops, and hospitality areas, the experts have decided what colours will be the most popular. Let’s look at some of their choices and see if any resonate with you. While you don’t need to follow any particular trend, it’s always great to get some fresh new ideas.

White continues to be popular

Looking at the history of commercial spaces, it’s hard to miss the noticeable shift in many places from crowded setups to more open, minimalist designs dominated by white colours. When it comes to white, the secret is in the warm undertones—it’s not just about the colour but the cosy atmosphere it brings. Adding these subtle undertones transforms a space, making it feel not just visually appealing but also welcoming.

Choosing white with warm undertones isn’t just a design choice. It’s a deliberate move towards creating spaces that not only look good but also feel good, to strike that perfect balance between aesthetics and comfort.

Earthy tones are in

While brown might not be the go-to choice for many when envisioning their commercial space, incorporating an array of earthy brown tones is a trend that’s gaining popularity. And for good reason. This mix brings a touch of the outdoors inside, adding a contemporary and inviting feel to the room. Complementing these browns are shades of green, especially the likes of olive and deeper tones that mix well with the warmth of brown hues. The combination of these earthy tones transforms a space into one that exudes warmth, comfort, and relaxation—a perfect fit for hospitality settings aiming to evoke these feelings.

Blue stays strong

When contemplating the colour scheme for your business space, think about the impact of blue—it has the power to convey a sense of peace, tranquillity, and sophistication, tailored to your needs. What’s particularly appealing about blue is its versatility. The choice of shade can completely alter the atmosphere of the room. For example, choosing lighter tones of blue can instil a serene and calming environment, while embracing darker blues adds a layer of drama and intensity to the room. The beauty of blue lies not just in its colour but in its ability to help you create a space that resonates with your commercial space.

We’re getting colourful with pink

There are two sides to a coin, and while minimalism is still popular, there has also been a rising trend towards maximalism and a flair for the dramatic. Deep pinks and reds are becoming popular for those who want to add some life and vibrancy to the room as the colours are a way to tell a story. Bright pinks are great for those who have spaces that need to evoke a sense of boldness, and even going for lighter shades of pink can bring a sense of playfulness to the room. Either way, you’re making a statement with pink. And with the popularity of the Barbie movie, there’s no doubt more people will be going this way.

Colour trends this year are all about finding a way to make sense of the room and what feelings you want it to portray. Do any of these trends resonate with your space?
