The Best Paint Colors for Selling a Home

If you are planning on selling your home, you can increase your chances of getting it sold and even boost your asking price by improving how it looks. All it takes is a fresh coat of paint, as long as you pick the right color.

In choosing the perfect color for your home’s paint job, you need to consider current trends and shades that are attractive and popular. Don't pick anything garish or too bright. Think more in terms of neutral colors that appeal to everyone and can easily blend with any type of home decor.

To show you what we mean, here are some interior and exterior paint colors that should boost the resale value of your home:

Interior Paint Colors

To give the illusion of an expanded interior space, avoid dark shades that make your rooms look cramped. You should also try to avoid anything too bold or too bright. Stick with neutral shades and colors that can make spaces look larger than they actually are. Some top options:

White – You can never go wrong with white. Any shade of white is great but the more muted tones, like ivory and cream with some yellowish undertones, are the best. Don’t go for stark white, which can be reminiscent of hospital rooms.

Gray – Go for a lighter shade of gray instead of the darker ones to help give your room an illusion of space and sophistication. Don’t aim for a metallic gray or gun-metal gray, but rather for light gray or the trendy “greige”, which is a mix of beige and gray.

Earth – Earth tones like taupe and mocha are also great for indoors because they give off a neutral vibe but with some touch of color. Avoid darker browns that make a room look old, dark, and cramped.

Exterior Paint Colors

As with your interior paint choices, your exterior options should also be more neutral albeit a bit darker than your indoor paint choices. Some of the best colors you can choose for your home’s new outdoor look include a darker shade of gray, a muted shade of blue, and the trendy “greige”.
