We’ve recently discussed both fun exterior painting ideas as well as tips specifically intended to help you boost your home’s curb appeal. This is, after all, an ideal season for tackling home improvement projects, regardless of whether or not your property is going up for sale.
If you are selling your house this spring, have you considered updating your interior paint?
It’s a cost-effective, powerful way to make your property fresh, inviting, and memorable.
Where Should You Start?
As objectively as you can, walk through your house and imagine the perspective of someone visiting for the first time, stepping inside behind their realtor. Take note of particularly tired or outdated walls, and those that draw your eye before any others.
It can also be enlightening to click through sites like Houzz.com that offer an up-to-date pulse on today’s styles and trends. This can help you prioritize your projects too, maybe starting with removing the original wallpaper in the dining room (just as an example!).
Choose a Marketable Interior Paint Color
Personal preference is nearly limitless when it comes to interior painting. Some people can’t live without their purple accent walls or lime green bathroom, while others need the vintage look of retro wallpaper. In the majority of cases, however, what your prospective buyer is going to look for is a clean slate that doesn’t clutter their imagination.
Bright, neutral colors are ideal when you’re painting for resale. Not only is this a stylish option in itself, but it also leaves room for easy personalization.
Rooms You Will Never Regret Painting Before Selling Your Home
Here are just a few high-value interior painting projects:
- Tired and outdated spaces
- High-traffic areas
- Kitchens and bathrooms (major selling points!)
- Cabinetry (fast, cost-effective transformations)
