When it comes to boosting your home’s value, there are  many things you can do to make your home more appealing. One of those things is a fresh paint job! A new coat of paint can really make a difference in the value of your home when you are looking to sell. We all know that first impressions matter, and you don’t want your visitors to assume the home hasn’t been well maintained. A fresh coat of paint not only looks better, but will help you sell your home faster and for more money. When people are looking at a home that they’re interested in buying, they will of course envision how the home will look with their belongings in it. That can include furniture or any of the updates they want to make to the home. You can save them some of this stress by using a neutral shade of paint that creates a space that feels fresh and relevant to any aesthetic or style. Here are the best colors to use.

Warm greys are versatile and offer an elegant aesthetic while providing the perfect balance of warm and cool.

Soft whites are a great choice because they create a clean backdrop that make it easy for the buyer to visualize how their belongings will look against the walls and space.

   Light pastels are useful for when you want a bit of color without feeling too dramatic or overwhelming.

Velvety beige works well because it is so versatile and works well with differing wood tones, while bringing depth and dimension to open floor plans.

Creamy off whites add a warm backdrop while still bringing a touch of sophistication to the room.


Slapping on any color of paint won’t work, and you have to keep in mind that it’s about creating a more versatile space. Dark, vibrant, or inconsistent schemes make homes feel smaller, stuffier, less inviting, and impede the buyers’ ability to insert themselves and their tastes into the space. Neutral colors such as greys, beiges and whites work well because they are so versatile. It’s much easier for someone to picture how their furniture would look in a room that’s already painted the right color. Also, when you paint your home’s whole interior the same neutral tone, you save money because you can buy it in bulk. Studies have revealed that aside from neutral colors increasing a home’s value, homes with more style-specific colors sold for less than expected. When it comes to picking a color, just remember that you’re trying to appeal to the widest possible audience, not your own tastes!
