How To Paint Your Home For Sale?

Unlike furniture and any other treatments you can give your home painting  always stands out.  Painting your home before sale not only makes the best first impression; but also makes the impact that leaves every first time home buyer with the best impression influencing their buying decision. 

Painting the interiors of a home for sale needs a lot of consideration as selecting a wrong color can be not just painful but may impact the sale process. Here are some tips for painting your home before selling to ensure a successful sale.

Picking colors can seem stressful; but if you have done your research well, not only is the process smooth but the desired effect is assured. 

Light—Light colors are used to provide a spacious feel to rooms. They expand the size of rooms which makes for a grand presentation. Lighter colors also reflect a sense of cleanliness which is always beneficial.

Dark— Dark colors tend to make rooms more compact; so a dark choice of color wouldn’t be preferable in a smaller sized room, because it would only condense the space even smaller than it originally looked.

Neutral colors play a role in being less distracting and allowing potential buyers to imagine their own styles, ideas, and preferences. If you’re worried about what colors to use, simply stick to a neutral color palate of whites, greys and beiges.


Up to Date Paint Colors: 

You want to keep your painted walls in good condition and with an updated appearance. Remove painted designs or distracting wallpaper before you sell.  Discolored, faded or otherwise old paint deserves a fresh coating. Here a few signs you need to repaint:

Light, neutral colors make rooms feel larger.

There are optimal colors for each room in the house. Starting with the kitchen, let’s find out which colours are best for each:

Kitchen— The symbolism behind colors comes into play here. Kitchen walls should be “appetizing,” if that is possible. The color should not put one off one’s dinner!

Bathroom— Smaller-sized rooms should have lighter colors, and the bathroom is traditionally the smallest room in a home.

Bedroom—Bedrooms can be a variety of colors, but they should always be soothing & restful. For example, a bedroom with an outdoor balcony may play well with natural colors or neutral tones.

It’s best to leave as much of your personality as possible out of the picture when it comes to painting your walls. Take care to choose the right neutral colors when getting your house ready for a sale in order to maximize light and space for potential buyers.
