Does Paint Color Really Matter?

Many people can’t see why they may need to repaint prior to listing their home to sell.  As an Interior Designer, I can tell you it’s not about just another coat of fresh paint – it’s important to choose just the right paint colors and to know how paint color placement can actually make a property look more expensive.   Only 10% of people can see beyond what they see as they walk through a property.  That means that anything taste-specific is difficult for buyers to overlook when choosing their dream home.

IS DARKER BETTER?

Dark woods and paint colors can make a space appear smaller.  This is

something Interior Designers understand and know how to accomplish the overall look using the right paint colors to change the perception of the space.

WHAT CAN I PAINT?

Besides de-cluttering, the right paint and paint color placement makes a space feel larger and refreshing.  Fixtures, cabinets, and built-in’s can be painted for a quick and inexpensive upgrade.

HOW DO I SAVE MONEY?

Even if your budget is tight, just the right colors in a dated bathroom can be a big hit. Focus on the most impactful rooms like your kitchen and living room.  Take it room by room if your budget doesn’t allow for an overall makeover.

SHOULD I KEEP IT?

Wallpaper border should ALWAYS come down – buyers don’t want to even think about taking it down themselves.  If you’ve ever removed wallpaper yourself, you know what I mean.

DO I HAVE TO MANY COLORS GOING ON IN ONE SPACE?

Multiple colors in the same room can chop up the space making it look smaller – and having to many color schemes looks bad in MLS photos.
