Color ideas to add great value to your home

by Amy Wax Amy Wax – International Color Consultant

Re-painting your home is one of the most effective (and affordable) ways you can increase your home’s market price. So, if you are planning on selling your home quickly and get top-dollar offers, you should consider re-painting its exteriors and interiors.

Here are some color ideas that may come in handy.

Be bold with the exterior

Your home’s exterior is the first thing your potential homebuyers lay eyes on. So, you want to make sure your exterior paint colors pop and what better way to do that than to paint it a bold color like light blue or green or maybe even yellow? Bold colors may seem risky at first, but once you have painted, your house is undoubtedly going to be the most enviable one on the block.

 

The interiors

For the living room: Think cozy

When picking out a color for the living room, you want to think cozy and warm. Gray is a trending color for living rooms, but deep, intimate tones of red to neutral earth tones are better options as these colors are associated more with joy, positivity and charm than gray.

For the bedroom: Choose a soothing palette

When it comes to your bedroom, cool and calm shades of blue, gray, white and beige are the way to go. You can also pair these shades with a more vibrant palette and add pops of colors where you want.

For the kitchen: Keep it clean (Not)

White seems to be the go-to color scheme for kitchens, and rightly so. It is natural, simple and neat. Yet if you want to perk up your kitchen space or you just want to take a more non-traditional approach, you can consider painting your kitchen walls with rich colors such as deep blue, leaf green or bright red. These tones also smartly bring out the architectural elements of your kitchen and restyle your antiquated cabinetry. So, a win-win!

For the bathroom: Keep it simple and elegant

The bathroom is the most challenging place in your home to make attractive and inviting to everyone. But an easy trick you can use is to keep it neutral without pops of colors or tons of character.

Keep in mind that the choice of colors is heavily dependent on your house. The color that looks good on one house may not necessarily suit yours. So, before deciding on a color, it is in your best interest to consult a paint color expert in New Jersey.
