Want some more tips? Read on to learn how to choose paint colors for your home interior.


Colors That Sell

Believe it or not, the right colors can actually obtain a higher asking price for your home. “Business Insider” once said that colors between gray and beige is most appealing to homebuyers, and typically earns a few thousand dollars more. A neutral color is appealing because it allows the potential buyer to envision their own color for the house after they move in. A strong, vibrant color may overwhelm the buyer’s vision with your own. Try a shade of blue for kitchens, periwinkle for bathrooms, and beige for living areas.


Personalize Your Home

After you move in, you will want to establish your own sense of style. It’s important that family and friends feel welcome in your new home! Try a mix of colors that feel inviting and coordinated. For example, an ivory house with white trim and an aqua door can evoke a sense of elegance and traditional style. Cool shades of blue, green, or brown can help your house feel more nature-like. For those of you coming to live in the Charleston, SC area, pastel colors go very well with the seaside locale. Be sure to talk to the paint expert at your local home and hardware store for more recommendations and matches.
