3 Ways To Introduce Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year into Your Home

If you’re anything like us here at Menzie Stone Company, you wait eagerly every year for Pantone to reveal its selection for Color of the Year. We were pleased to learn that their pick for 2020 is Classic Blue, a timeless shade that can be applied almost anywhere in your space without fear of becoming quickly outdated. Let’s look at a few ways you can use this stunning, deep blue to bring new life into your home with the new year!


Let’s start with our bread and butter: countertops. From your kitchen to the bathroom and everywhere in between, you can custom-order your countertops to be this shade of blue for a really bold statement. Then, let your choice shine by surrounding it with contrasting elements! For example, use this eye-catching Classic Blue as the centerpiece of your design and pair it with simple, streamlined metal fixtures so the color can do all the talking.


Dark cabinets are huge right now! If you’re tired of your current plain kitchen shelving or bathroom vanity units, consider using this color to bring extra warmth into your space. Or, go a more modern route and pair the blue cabinets with a white backsplash, countertop or walls. This will create a glowy, inviting area that is sure to brighten up the day of all who enter!


While there’s nothing wrong with utilizing safe, neutral colors, it’s always nice to bring something new into the mix. Using Pantone’s Classic Blue, you can add pops of color to freshen your space. Paint it as an accent wall in your living room, she-shed… even your garage door! Place a deep blue area rug in your home office. Reupholster those dining room chairs. Wherever you have a neutral canvas is a perfect backdrop for a little color.

There are several ways you can outfit your home to feature this year’s Pantone Color of the Year. If you find yourself wanting to apply this color to your countertops, whether in your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room or beyond, give Menzie Stone Company a call at 225-275-7819 with any questions you may have!
