If you are planning on selling your home, choosing a color that will attract buyers is crucial. First impressions are everything and you should choose colors that will appeal to the largest amount of buyers.
Blue is a calming color and painting a bedroom or bathroom in a lighter shade of blue may entice buyers. Neutral colors like beige or soft taupe are nice in larger living spaces. Choosing natural colors like a light gray can also help make your home feel larger.
Here are some tips to get you started:
- Clean your walls first with soap and water and let dry overnight. Paint will stick better to a clean wall.
- Use drop cloths or old sheets to protect your floors. Using plastic to cover you floor can be slippery.
- Apply painter’s tape along the edges of ceiling, molding and trim. After applying, use a putty knife to smooth and seal the tape to help ensure clean, sharp paint lines.
