Just when I was loving all things white walls, I happened upon this Bower Power post about which colors sell homes for a higher price.
According to a Zillow study, if you plan to sell your home any time soon, painting certain rooms shades of blue, beige and gray will bring a higher price and sell your house faster.
One thing that surprised me was the recommendation to paint a kitchen gray for the highest return on investment. I would never think to paint a kitchen gray until I read this post.
After I read the Bower Power post, I went to Zillow and found homes in our neighborhood and looked at the pictures of their rooms.
I immediately compared the color of the rooms on the Zillow site with the recommended colors from the blog post, and I could see right away how much better the rooms would look if they were painted in the recommended colors.
You can find out the particulars here Three Paint Colors That Sold Our Home. Even if you're not planning to sell your home, I promise the rooms will help if you have Paint Trauma Disorder like I have.
If you start thinking her rooms were probably great to start, go see her "before" pictures in this post. I think these two posts will make you start thinking differently about paint colors and maybe make it a little easier to make decisions about which color goes in which room.
Thanks for dropping by!
