The Best House Painting Colors to Help Sell Your House

House painting

If you are planning to put your house up for sale, you should remember that the color of your house can play an important role in creating a positive impression for your buyers. The wrong color inside or outside can turn off a potential buyer. If you want to impress your buyers, here are some color tips from the professionals at Prism House Painting Plus:

White: This is one of the safest and most popular colors for a house’s exterior. White can make a house appear larger and better kept. It also soaks up the light in a shady yard. Another benefit of white is that you can paint the trim with a color that makes the entire house stand out.

Beige: This is a safe, neutral and light color for the exterior of a house. It is the second-most popular exterior color after white. Beige blends in well with wooded or landscaped areas. However, before choosing to have your house painted in beige, remember that this color does not look well for all house types. If you have a Victorian home, beige might not be the right choice for you.

Earth tones: Earth tones such as shades of brown, green, blue, orange, and some reds and tans, depict the colors in nature and are considered to be the best interior colors. These warm and inviting colors are ideal for living rooms and dining rooms. Since these colors are flat and muted, they are soothing and relaxing and work well with most other colors and tones.

Neutral colors: Some buyers may not want to buy a house with bright colors because they may fear having to spend additional money to re-paint or change the color. In this case, neutral colors may be the best option. A neutral color such as cream can make a house look great in photographs, which is the first place people check when searching for a house to buy.

Yellow: Yellow is another color that can grab a buyer’s attention. It is ideal for the kitchen, especially if there is a lot of sunlight coming through the windows. This color can create an airy summer-like feeling. To create a playful mood, you can combine this color with red or green accents on chairs and small appliances.

Blue: The paint color in a bedroom, study or child’s room should create a cool and soothing environment. Consider using a shade of blue to enhance the right mood.

A light blue shade has a strong soothing effect. Blue walls in a room that gets a lot of natural light can remind your buyers of a favorite beach or ski trip. This can affect their impression of the entire house.

Dark blue colors may turn off some visitors as being too dark. To sell your house, stick with lighter blues.

Brown: Light brown shades can provide subtle warmth. Brown is an effective color to bring a rich glow to a room. Dark shades of brown can be comforting and cozy and can keep a room from feeling too large.
