To Paint, or Not to Paint; That Is the Question

 

1

The first question you might ask yourself after putting your house on the market is “Do I really need to paint?” The answer, for the most part, is often a resounding yes. A fresh coat of paint is attractive to potential buyers; it means less work and maintenance that they have to do, which increases the value of your home.

Exterior
The color of your house is the first thing a potential buyer sees. Homes painted neutral shades, like the popular “greige,” or grey-beige, saw up to $3,496 more than the expected price of the home when selling.

Kitchen
It seems like white kitchen updates are in style; from white cabinets to white countertops, bright kitchens seem to be trending. However, that trend doesn’t look like it’s going to last! Painting your kitchen a blue-gray is a safe bet and can make your home sell an average of $1,809 more! But don’t limit color to just the walls; homes with bold cabinets often sell faster.

Dining Room
Similar to the kitchen, blue-greys are all the rage in the dining room. Compared to white dining rooms, homes with more matte colors had a value of approximately $1,926 more. Stick to lighter colored accents to contrast the muted grey-blue.

Bathroom
A blue bathroom is a classic, and for good reason! Studies have shown that houses with bathrooms painted a light blue bathroom netted an average of $5,440 more than expected. Spruce up decorations with nautical or beach themed pictures.

Bedroom
If you’re noticing a trend, blue is it. Bedrooms painted a soft, matte cerulean sold higher than expected. Pair the blue with bright, white baseboards to make it pop, and add natural wood accents to create a relaxing, tranquil environment for potential buyers.

Living Room
Greige was all the trend in 2018, and it doesn’t look like it’s going away anytime soon! Light beiges and greys help make homes feel cozy and welcoming and can increase your home value by $2,000. Stick with neutral accents to keep the room feeling clean and comfortable.

Blue is overwhelmingly the color of 2019, and honestly who’s surprised? The color blue has been thought to lower stress, increase productivity, and inspire a sense of tranquility.
