Best Interior & Exterior Paint Colors for Selling a House
Bill Engler Painting as presented some advice on the most optimal choices of painting the basic rooms of your home to make it look more appealing to buyers.
Exterior House Paint Colors: The exterior of your home is the first impression buyers will get, avoid any color that will clash with the surrounding environment. For example, if your area is fairly wooded, earth tones would be complimentary. Consider the color of the rooftop as well as any brick or stone work when selecting the right color if you are freshly painting the exterior. The landscape also influences the balance of the overall appearance of the exterior of your house. If the yard is extremely green and lush, avoid painting the exterior any shade of green. Instead a pale shade of yellow is more ideal.
Bathroom Color Trends: One of the biggest mistakes homeowners do in an effort to sell their home is painting the bathrooms in piercing bold colors. Dark, bold colors tend to draw in the space and when it comes time to sell, you want to amplify the size of the space. Bathrooms by design, are small and to create the illusion it is more spacious. Use soft and light shades although subtle accents in bolder colors can work into the color scheme if you are trying to match the rest of the house a decor. Whites, creams, light beiges increase size.
Bedroom Colors & Moods: Bedrooms are the designated sanctuaries where we obtain rest and relaxation. Chaotic prints or patterns and exotic colors turn-off most buyers. A place to avoid stress or anxiety keep the bedroom colors in mild and soft tones as well as harmonize and balance them with either warm or cool hues. Examples of preferable colors in the bedroom include; eggshell or off whites, feather grays, pale yellows, soft blues, or even the light olive.
Kitchen Paint Colors with White, Oak or Dark Cabinets: Experts suggest using bright colors will capture the attention of potential buyers. The kitchen is the heart of many homes and with many activities transpiring there, you want excitement. This is the place to use the brighter colors; it will spark enthusiasm and positively influence moods. The brighter and lighter colors also illuminate the surroundings; allowing the grand chef to see the difference between a rare and medium rare steak or doughy centers. White kitchens need to be avoided; where you might think white is a neutral color and you can’t go wrong with white, an all white kitchen, as spacious as most kitchens are will emulate that of a hospital. Pale yellows and light olive hues or the faint warm shades of beige or creams accented in rich tomes are ideal.
Living Room Color Combinations: Research shows that living space should be a well balanced combination of neutral and warm tones. The latest trends can be easily incorporated to intrigue buyers. As buyers look for the perfect house, they naturally envision their art pieces on the walls, their furniture in different setups, and other accessories of their own tastes in the rooms as the assess and inspect them. If you have the living space painted a deep shade of purple that clash of their possessions, it can be difficult for them to try and picture everything in a color more suited to their décor style, which can be the ultimate decision in picking a house to call home. Utilize neutral colors; creamy whites, subtle beiges, and light gray tones and avoid the bold colors. Accents walls or trimming is always acceptable, but keep them in correlation to the primary color.
