5 Paint Colors That Can Help You Sell Your Home For More Money

paint colors that help you sell

When you’re selling your home in Lakewood, Long Beach, or any of the surrounding communities, it makes sense to want top dollar for it—and there are plenty of things that can affect its value, so it can be a little bit tough to strike the right balance.

New research suggests that a lot of a home’s perceived value has to do with its interior colors, though. 

5 Paint Colors (and Where They Belong) That Can Help You Sell for More Money

White is so early-2000s, especially when it comes to what buyers prefer. Sure, there’s room in décor for white or eggshell shades—but for the most part, buyers want a home that’s doesn’t look like a sanitized laboratory.

Yellow Kitchens Can Bring in Up to $1,360 More

According to the research, a home with a yellow kitchen can sell for up to $1,360 more than home-sellers expect.

On the other hand, a white kitchen can sell for about $82 less than sellers expect.

The Color Psychology of Yellow

Yellow is a warm color that evokes feelings of happiness, optimism, and energy.

Tan Bathrooms Could Net You $283 More

If your bathroom is tan, oatmeal, or beige, it lends to a spa-like atmosphere—and it can bring in $283 more than it would if it wasn’t painted in one of those colors.

A dark brown bathroom could lose you $469, according to the same research.

The Color Psychology of Tan

Tan is a neutral color, and it’s great for a relaxing atmosphere.

From light green to khaki, a green bedroom is apparently attractive to buyers and can bring in $1,332 more than it would if it was a plain, neutral color.

Conversely, a dark brown bedroom seems least desirable to buyers, losing an average of $236 on the selling price.

The Color Psychology of Green

Green is a cool color known for its calming effect.

Purple Dining Rooms: Up to $1,122 Extra

Choosing the right shade of purple (royal purple isn’t it) can net you up to $1,122 more than you’d expect. The most popular shades are mauve, eggplant, and lavender.

Slate or dark gray can cost you, though, up to $1,112.

The Color Psychology of Purple

Like green, purple is a cool, soothing color. However, it also helps spark creativity.

Gray Living Rooms Could Bring in $1,104 More

Unlike in the dining room, gray is popular in the living room—especially in a light shade or dove color.

Perhaps not surprisingly, an orange, terracotta-colored living room can cost you $793 at the closing table.

The Color Psychology of Gray

Gray is also considered a neutral color, which makes sense when it’s in the living room—it’s ideal as a background color and mixes well with just about anything else.
