Increasing the Value of Your Home With Paint Color
Maybe you are putting your house on the market, or maybe you just want to feel as though you have done all you can to maximize the value. Either way, you should be aware that the color selections you make for painting your house will affect this.
Because honestly, either reason is a good reason to hire a professional house painter and make your home look its best. Before opting to paint your home, you have to first know a little bit about the color options that you have and what will work best for what you hope to achieve.
Color Psychology and Your House Painting
Here's a brief overview of the various choices you have and how they affect your home's worth:
- Want to increase the likelihood of selling your home for close to $2k more than expected? In that case, make it a point to incorporate neutrals in the beige family for your living room walls. This includes colors like oatmeal, taupe or greige, the trendy new combination of grey and beige. Even if you are not listing your home, you and your family will enjoy these muted tones. The colors make the space feel welcoming and make it easy to decorate without fear of too much contrast.
- It is also important to note that greige, specifically, is the new "it" color for the exterior of the home. It is more interesting than white but pairs well with details like brick, stone or whatever landscaping design you have in place. Plus, it can even work cohesively with whatever neighboring home colors are surrounding you. By the way, if you are planning on selling, this color choice can help you sell for more than $3500 than expected.
- Otherwise, blue is the big winner here! For both inside and outside of your home. To be more specific, light blue and blue/grey are shades that can be used almost any place and look good, add value and make it easier to sell your home, if that is your ultimate goal. So, for example, using the right tone of blue could help you sell your house for $5000 more than expected. Blue kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, dining rooms and exteriors have all helped current homes increase in value.
Simply put, blue and greige are your best color options for increasing the value, and asking price, of your residential property. You need an expert to work with to address your service needs.
