MOST COMMON DON’T S: Getting your kitchens , living rooms, and bathrooms with vibrant colors do not appeal to buyers. Better to avoid any paint color too bright such as mint / lime green , and bright red / blue. Other hues not recommended for resale homes are red, pink, and bright yellow because they turn off prospective buyers which were mentioned in a recent study. Seeing bright and busy colors on the walls will get potentially lower offers on your resale home.

DO S , WE RECOMMEND: Carrying one simple paint color all around the house and keeping walls neutral colors , especially in the family room and main living areas. Keeping the paint color in light gray in living rooms allows buyers to imagine themselves in the space which feels calm to put an offer right away. If you want to add some life by having light blue bathrooms, white kitchen walls / cabinets , and dark blue / navy bedrooms also have better potential to increase the value of your home.

Choosing the right paint color and sheen will compliment each area of your home. Matte ( Flat ) sheens are the best at hiding imperfections in the walls that will keep your home walls looking more presentable .
