Trending colours for gardens in 2024

UK home improvement store Homebase has announced the top trending shades for gardens in 2024. These are the colours Brits are painting their gardens in 2024, with some unexpected shades in the top 5!

Gold outdoor paint has increased in popularity by a huge 1,069% in 2024! This growth is fuelled by sales of the shade Harvest Gold, a cheerful golden brown with brighter yellow and orange undertones.

But people aren't just going for cheerful colours in the garden, daring colours such as purple (up 507%) and orange (up 171%) are stepping into the limelight, making the top 5 most popular outdoor paint colours.

Homebase's top five trending outdoor paint colours for 2024:
Golden Brown - 1,069%
Purple - 507%
Beige - 327%
Red - 174%
Orange - 171%

Wider research reveals that brown, green and grey paints continue to dominate gardens across the UK. When looking at individual shades, the top garden colour is Silver Copse, a dark silver-grey, with an impressive 11% of sales. For 2024 it's evident that paints with bold neutral tones are conquering the outdoors.

Paige McCallum, paint and wallpaper buyer at Homebase has commented on the recent data which uncovered the trending outdoor paint colours for this year: 'The growing popularity of bold, vibrant colours like purples and oranges shows we are feeling liberated and injecting more vibrancy into our gardens. After years of muted tones dominating, people seem to want to make more of a sunny, uplifting statement.'

'That said, we're not seeing neutrals disappear entirely. The continued prevalence of versatile naturals like our bestselling harvest gold paint indicates homeowners still crave a sense of calm in their outdoor spaces. This is a nice alternative to a traditional brown or dark charcoal when painting your fence, as it can form the perfect backdrop to let your garden pop. The rising trend is all about striking a harmonious balance between punches of energetic colour and soothing, timeless backdrops.'
