Homeowners Crave Tranquility In Their Homes

Homeowners are preferring natural, earth colour tones for their homes, as they crave a feeling of safety, says a study by Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA). “We’re definitely seeing a desire for serene, calming colours that reflect a sense of peace, security and grounding,” says Renee Ramey, MRA executive director. For the exterior of the home, colours that are subtle and subdued will be particularly popular in 2021. MRA member and paint manufacturer AkzoNobel announced ‘Brave Ground’ as its 2021 colour of the year, a warm natural neutral earth tone that is all about bringing balance and stability and can work together with other colours beautifully. MRA member Ideal Roofing in Canada has had a huge interest in metal roofing slate look-alike styles that can add curb appeal while withstanding severe storms in regions that experience extreme climate conditions.
