5 Paint Colours Buyers Want to See
Here we go!
Exterior paint technologies have come a long way. For example, eco-friendly self-cleaning paint technology inspired by the lotus flower (seriously, check it out!).
If your home’s exterior is in need of some TLC, this is the time to splash on a new paint colour. Brake the neutral-only mold and go with a hue that’s really hot right now — soft, butter yellow. It has a Nantucket-beach-house vibe, and appeals to both the realists (resale value) and the dreamers (forever home).
Painting the exterior of your home before shooting listing photos has the power to punch up its value in a big way. Not only will a fresh paint colour draw interest, but buyers will appreciate not having to do it themselves down the road.
Many of the interior paint colours that are trending today are extreme, but don’t be turned off. They will attract buyers. Knowing that you won’t be living with this colour for the next five years may actually be quite freeing, so go bold.
Striking a beautiful balance between soft blue and sage green, muted seafoam is coating everything from kitchen cabinets to bedrooms. Its non-invasive hue is peaceful and restorative, and is a popular paint colour choice for bathrooms and formal sitting rooms as well.
Moving along the green spectrum, we find our next and final value-adding colour for 2018 — a dark blue-green. This deep, moody hue reminds us of our relationship with nature, and can make us feel more connected to our surroundings. Ideal for an entryway or powder room, choose a low sheen when using this rich colour to minimize eye-catching reflection.
