Are there colors that can boost my home’s value?

Painting your home doubles down on the much-needed aesthetic change by being a quick and relatively inexpensive renovation option. However, did you know that a few cans of the right paint color in the right room can increase your home’s value by a couple of thousand dollars?

A Zillow research has revealed that certain paint hues can increase what your house’s buyer is willing to pay by as much as five grand.

 

Blue

Blue is a popular color with homeowners and prospective buyers for bathrooms and bedrooms. People are willing to pay 1.6% over the expected amount for a house with a light-blue bathroom; considering a typical home is valued at around $290,000, this price increase is almost $5,000.

While light and dark blue hues can be used in the bedroom, the psychological pull towards a moodier and cozy atmosphere can make your price point rise with dark blue paints. Using the $290,000 benchmark, dark blue paints can increase your home’s value by $1,500.

 

White

No color brightens the home up quite as white does. It’s an ideal aesthetic choice for living rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, and even exteriors. Warm white, for instance, is a neutral color that lets potential buyers feel at home within a space – bold colors might get in the way of that. It can boost the house’s perceived value by a few thousand bucks.

 

Greige

Beige and gray are excellent options for your interiors; however, if you can’t pick your preferred color, why not go with both? Greige is a winning blend of neutral colors and will bring about the general feeling of sophistication and elegance associated with white and gray.

It’s a good choice for bedrooms and living rooms. Besides looking amazing, it’s a color that increases your home’s value. Greige and other neutral colors, like beige or light brown, can add $2,000 to your abode’s current value.
