We’ve already discussed boosting exterior curb appeal, and how strategic color updates can help your home stand out from the crowd. This can be fun and valuable, whether you’re selling your property or not.
Let’s turn our attention today to your interior spaces. How can you help the curb appeal to not end at the front door, but instead create an inviting experience for prospective buyers walking through your home?
The Best Rooms and Colors to Paint Before Selling Your Home
Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- Keep Your Colors Neutral – You may love that electric green accent wall, but will the next homeowner? As you paint, try using a warm but neutral color. In other words, avoid stark white walls, but select paint that will look fresh and not clash with your prospective buyer’s tastes.
- Prioritize Your To-Do’s – Does the kitchen have outdated wallpaper? Is the bathroom dark? How about the hole in the dining room drywall? Start with your higher priority items first rather than take on more than you can feasibly complete.
- Focus On the High-Value Spaces – As you prioritize, keep in mind that some rooms are going to have more of an impact than others. For example, it’s easy to look past a living room wall color, but a tired kitchen or bathroom is not quite as easy to forgive. Focus on kitchens and bathrooms first, painting walls and cabinets as needed. Any investment in these rooms is an investment well spent.
