Home Staging Paint Colors- Home staging is the art of presenting your property in its best possible light via color, decor, lighting, and other design methods. Successful home staging attracts buyers and encourages healthy competition among them that will result in you receiving the best possible offer. Read on for some ways to use paint to successfully stage your property for sale in 2021.
A BLANK CANVAS
Making your home appealing to a wide variety of people when you are trying to sell it is essential. This means that you should present your home as a space that any buyer could personalize. If you have the budget to redesign and/or remodel your home into a property that falls stylistically between traditional and contemporary that would be the best start; but there are easy, less expensive ways to present your home as a blank canvas for buyers.
NEUTRALS ARE NECESSARY
Painting is an excellent way to create an interior space that is neutral, which is key when it comes to helping potential buyers imagine themselves living in the home you’re selling. In most cases, you should choose neutral tones like beige, grey, taupe, and whites with warm undertones (to avoid a feeling of sterility) for interior paint. Not only do these neutrals visually enlarge small spaces, they also help to brighten them when combined with good lighting. Choosing the right paint colors can make a huge difference in how your home is viewed in terms of value; and the right color can help clinch a sale quickly.
KITCHEN COLOR KARMA
Now is a good time to revamp your kitchen, especially if it is dated. An inexpensive and simple change you can make is to paint the kitchen cabinetry. You can have the cabinet doors professionally sprayed, or complete this impactful upgrade as a DIY project if you have some experience. Using neutral colors for this task is also recommended, though you might choose hues with undertones that contrast with or accent the foundational color of the room. If you are interested in adding a pop of color outside of your neutral shades, try painting your kitchen island or accenting your backsplash.
If there is room in your budget to take on another project before selling, you might want to paint the exterior of your home as well. Adding curb appeal for buyers as they drive up outside is one way to make your home more marketable and possibly secure a higher sale price. Choose exterior paint in a neutral color that works well with your landscape but contrasts with surrounding homes so your house stands out subtly and without being showy or pretentious.
