2021 Color Trends to Start the Year Fresh

2021 color trends to start the year fresh

2020 has been unpredictable and sometimes chaotic. Something that you might look forward to in 2021 is a greater sense of control, calm, and serenity. A fresh coat of paint with the right colors can help you reduce stress, and the act of painting itself can also reduce stress. Today, we’ll look at how you can use 2021 color trends to find the right balance of comfort and individuality in your home.

What’s the top color of 2021?

According to Benjamin Moore, Aegean Teal 2136-40 is 2021’s Color of the Year. Aegean Teal is a “blue-green with a touch of gray.” This combination of colors is excellent if you’re looking for a calming, soothing tone to offset an unpredictable and volatile 2020.

The color green has a relaxing effect on people, which makes it a fitting color for a fresh start. It’s also symbolic of nature. Given how much more time we’ve all spent in our homes in 2020, inviting the colors of nature into your home can help you feel refreshed. The combination of blue and gray is soothing and neutral, and can help reduce tension.

All of these aspects of Aegean Teal are perfect if you’re looking for a fresh start for 2021. Many of us have been looking for a sense of comfort and community in the midst of discomfort and separation. Aegean Teal can help evoke those more positive feelings.

Other color trends to set the tone for 2021

In addition to Aegean Teal, Benjamin Moore created an entire palette to complement their color of the year. After all, variety is the spice of life! You can check out each color below.

The most notable trait of these colors is how they focus on softer, earthier tones. This appeal to the theme of nature and inviting it inside can bring a soothing presence to your home. It’s a way to create a sense of safety, comfort, and escape. And with the wide range of color available, you can tap into your creative side (and reduce those stress-causing cortisol levels, too).

A home warranty from 2-10 HBW can also give you a sense of comfort

Like most people, you’re likely looking for a sense of comfort and protection in 2021. The 2021 color trends palette is a good way to establish those feelings in your everyday life at home. Another way to get that sense of comfort is with a home warranty from 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10 HBW).

With a home warranty from 2-10 HBW, you give yourself more control over the unexpected. A home warranty protects you against breakdowns to your home’s major systems and appliances. Breakdowns never happen when you expect them, and it can be challenging to find solutions when they do happen. In fact, increased appliances use has led to more breakdowns than ever before. With a home warranty from 2-10 HBW, you have an answer to the question, “Now what do I do?”

A home warranty from 2-10 HBW provides peace of mind in a couple of huge ways.

First, it gives you access to our approved, high-quality, local Contractor Network. That can take a lot of the pain of researching, vetting, and choosing a technician out of the equation, because we’ve done it for you. With so much to do and so many more responsibilities for you, reducing the time it takes to address unexpected breakdowns is a relief.

Second, a home warranty helps you cover big out-of-pocket repair and replacement costs. For example, if your water heater broke down, it could cost you $435* to repair it or $1,790* to replace it, on average. That can be a real challenge. With a home warranty plan that includes water heater coverage, you could pay a much smaller Service Fee to address the problem.


The 2021 color palate can be a great way to reduce your stress and start 2021 on the right foot. These colors provide a sense of soothing hopefulness and relief. When combined with a home warranty from 2-10 HBW, you can breathe easier with a newfound sense of control.

2-10 HBW offers the most comprehensive home warranty coverage for homeowners. Let us help you protect your home.
