Outdated Colors: Paint Over These Colors in Your Home

by Kevin Smith Author

Some paint colors are particularly popular now, like matte blue and deep gray. Similarly, some paint colors have gone out of style. Are any of these paint colors in your home? Interior painters in Alpharetta recommend that you paint over the following outdated colors.  


Sort-of white but not quite there, off-white is outdated, especially if it has yellow tones in it. If you want the clean look of a white walls and the expansive look it lends to homes, commit to a true white. Your walls will look much more elegant and spacious. White walls can even make your wall art look finer.


A boring color that's now used in the lexicon to refer to dull things, beige is an outdated color that needs replacing. A soft brown, it's not necessarily an ugly color. However, it's so dull that it represents a missed opportunity to add actual character to a room. If you like the natural, earthy tone of beige, consider repainting your walls something more stylish. Try a natural wood shade of brown with notes of green.


Sometime in the 1990s, red walls became popular and were often painted on the walls of studies, dens, and dining rooms. However, red is a color that has no place in your home. Studies have shown that red has an aggravating effect on the human mind. It can even make you tense or stressed. If you like the warm character of red, try an alternative paint color that won't make you flip out, like desert pink or natural amber.

Baby Blue

Unless you have a child that's still in a crib, it's time to get rid of baby blue. This color was once popular in bedrooms, bathrooms, and other rooms that wanted to have a soothing vibe, but its overly light and pastel tone just isn't in style anymore. Paint over this childish tone with a metallic light blue, sea blue, or blue-gray, which are more modern alternatives.

Some strong and vibrant paint colors may need to be primed before they can be repainted. Also, it may take several coats for some of your new palettes to set. The best way to get a successful new paint job is to trust in a professional. Call interior painters in Alpharetta today to get a fresh and stylish new coat of paint in every room of your home--or at least where the above outdated colors have held on too long.
