Do you need more ways to make your home appeal to buyers? Consider these painting tips that are designed to sell your home.
Before you decide to list your house for sale, you need to make sure your home is looking its best.
We don’t have to tell you that first impressions are everything.
You know this yourself since you’re also looking to buy a brand new home.
Before you decide how the house makes you feel, you assess the house based on how it looks. Right?
You look at the colors of the house and what shape it’s in, don’t you?
Of course, you do. That’s what everyone looks for when they check out a new home.
You want your house design to sell and sell fast.
So It’s time to roll up your sleeves, grab your paint cans and rollers. Let’s get started!
1. You’ll Want To Paint a Multiple Color Exterior
When creating a home designed to sell, you need to paint the exterior of your home to increase “curb appeal”.
After all, the first thing a potential buyer will see is the exterior.
If it’s been awhile, think of this as a good time to freshen up the look of your home.
Make sure you use multiple colors as well.
When giving your home a fresh coat of paint, you may already be thinking of the following:
- A color for the wall surface
- Another color, preferably contrasting for the trim
- An extra color for smaller features like shutters and doors
- The front door should have its own special treatment
In fact, these are instinctual for homeowners according to the Paint Quality Institute!
2. Unite Your Interior
If you’ve been in your home for several years, it’s probably seen its fair share of paint jobs.
While that was OK for you, it may leave your home without a consistent interior design theme.
Now, you’re going to need to unite your interior paint colors.
This is another way you need to make sure your home is designed to sell.
By creating a streamlined interior, you make it easier for homebuyers to come in and visualize your home as their own.
Consider streamlining neutral or earthy tones throughout your house. Green is soothing for a bedroom. A neutral yellow is an excellent choice for your kitchen.
Make sure you air out the place before hosting an open house!
3. Don’t Forget the Ceilings
Do you ever think about your ceilings? Truly?
Stand out and make sure your home is ready to sell by giving a fresh coat of white paint to your ceilings.
You’ll make your ceilings look brighter, fresher, and higher than they actually are.
It’s a neat freshen up trick.
