Upgrade Your Paint and Increase Your Property Value
As a homeowner there are a few simple ways to increase the value of your home. One relatively inexpensive way to add property value is by adding a fresh coat of paint! Studies have shown that by simply freshening up your home with a new coat of paint makes the home feel not only cleaner, but more inviting.
Whether you are just looking to spruce up your home or are considering putting your home on the market, Mike’s Quality Painting has the expertise and professional painters to get the job done! Don’t try to increase your property value with expensive updates such as remodeling your kitchen or gutting your landscape, when the solution can be as easy as buying and applying paint to your home!
In a recent article published by Zillow, adding certain colors to specific rooms can add thousands of dollars to the value of your home. While many home improvement shows suggest white paint in the kitchen, it’s been found that this can actually decrease the value of your home. According to Zillow, people who enter white kitchens find the room to be uninviting and even too sterile. Instead of sticking with a white kitchen, warm colors such as a muted yellow can instantly create a warm and inviting space.
If you are looking to paint your bathroom, choose a color in the taupe range, which has the possibility of increasing your home’s value by $300 more than expected. Avoid dark bathrooms or brown – it can make an already small amount of space feel even more cramped.
While not all paint colors can directly affect property value, there are a few colors that you may surprise you and even have the possibility of adding thousands of dollars to your home’s value. Try adding purple or mauve to your dining room. While it might seem odd, it can increase your home’s value significantly, especially when paired with alluring, natural wood finishes. For the bedroom, adding sage green or khaki paint can have the same effect! Finally, grey living rooms can add $1,104 to your home and really open up the space. The larger and more inviting you can make your home seem, the better!
It’s true that we may not be actively noticing the paint on a business’s walls, but these colors are picked meticulously to influence appetite, mood, and so much more. You should be thinking just as carefully about the colors inside your home, especially if you’re planning on selling!
