The Value of Paint

As homeowners, we’re always looking for ways to increase the value of our properties. Whether you’re wanting to remodel to put your home on the market soon, or you’re simply wanting to refresh your space, making changes and upgrades can add some major resale value to your home. One of the best ways to see your home one step closer to being resale-ready is to give it a fresh coat of paint. Painting can completely transform your space and give your home a fresh feel. But before you start looking for paint contractors, there are a few things to think about. In this two-part blog, we’ll take a look at some of the smartest paint choices to up the resale value of your home.

Go For Clean and Modern

If you’ve had the same colors on your wall for a few years, your paint color has probably already started to show its age. Walls with older paint on them can start to look dingy for a number of reasons. Perhaps your paint has started to show dirt or handprints, maybe the walls that have had sun exposure are faded, or it could be that certain walls in high traffic areas are showing nicks or scratches. There can be all kinds of reasons for needing a new paint job and it can instantly transform your space from drab and outdated into modern and sophisticated.

Another common reason that people opt to paint a room or full interior is because the previous paint job is outdated. Certain decades have common home paint colors that tend to define them and we can’t say that some of these colors are workable today. For example, the 70s saw a lot of olive green and Pepto pink kitchens. We don’t see this happening these days and if you’ve been living with these colors in your home, you might be ready for a modernization.

  • Solutions: A new coat of paint will instantly fix your issue of fading, discolored, nicked, or scuffed walls and can also make your home feel successfully updated. For your color, especially if you’re planning to sell, choose a shade that is fairly light and neutral. That way, if you’re planning on putting your home on the market, your wall shade will appeal to a greater number of potential buyers.
    When you’re needing to give your home that fresh coat of paint, deciding on the color should be one of your first priorities. You’ll need to give it some thought so that you can make sure that you get the most value for your beautiful and newly-painted home.
