For those who are seeking to sell their home you may be considering different and inexpensive solutions to increase the value and sale of your home. One of the most popular ways to sell a home for more and faster is to repaint. Repainting provides a fresh look for your home both inside and out. When you’re looking to make changes to your home or it no longer pleases you, but you still may need to market it, you might be wondering which colors you should use in each room. L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc will share the secret room-by-room colors that sell homes.
Interior Paint Colors to Sell Your Home
Kitchen – Kitchens that use light to soft grayish blue colors sell for way more money and draws in buyers. The second best choices are yellow hues such as straw yellow or marigold. Yellow kitchens don’t sell for quite as much as the blues. However, they definitely run second.
Bathrooms – Bluish purples such as periwinkle, is one of the most desired bathroom schemes. Light bluish purple provides a bite of color yet has a clean feel. Homes that have blue bathrooms sell for more money than other homes. The second choice is white. Yes, white also helps make a bathroom feel clean which most people consider to be the dirtiest part of a home. When painting a bathroom this is a feel you want to create.
Bedrooms – Light blues such as cerulean or cadet blue runs number one for bedroom colors. Light blue is relaxing and comfortable which is why it is a common choice among buyers. Another excellent choice is pink hues. Antique rose colors are often found in kid’s rooms and help brighten up a room. Pink is also a cheerful color that helps make a room feel more inviting.
Dining Rooms – Reds, such as brick red or copper red or even terracotta adds more value to the home, and of course, boosts the sell. Red is a rich color that is both inviting and interesting. The second choice for dining rooms is blue such as slate blue or pale to navy blue colors. Again, blues are relaxing and charming. However, in dining rooms, you can use a bit bolder hue of blue. Both reds and blue hues in the dining room setting both increases value and the sell of homes.
Living Rooms – The color that wins in living rooms are the brown hues. Colors such as light beige, pale taupe, or oatmeal is the number one color to increase the value of your home. Living rooms are typically larger rooms and the brown hues create an earthy, natural feel. The second choice of color is grayish blue colors. Blue living rooms don’t add as much value as brown colors do. However, grayish blues, such as pastel gray, pale silver, periwinkle and super light blues can increase the value and the sell over other colors.
Exterior Paint Colors – Your home exterior needs to draw in buyers. The number one color that currently draws in the most buyers is both gray and brown colors. Both run very close when it comes to selling and value. Records tell us you won’t go wrong using hues such as greige which is a mixture of beige and gray or there is medium brown, or taupe and stucco.
Front Door – The front door needs to be more inviting. Achieve this by having a gray or blue door. Using dark blue, such as navy blue or dark gray like charcoal, helps invite buyers and have increased the value and sale of your home.
