If you’re planning on selling your house, there are a number of steps you need to take before you list your home. Painting it will ensure it’s ready for today’s competitive real estate market. A fresh coat of paint will make a world of difference, and your home will be more desirable as a result.

There are, however, certain colours that you need to use because some tones are universally popular and will match everyone’s taste. Bold colours may not sit well with potential buyers, so you have to select colours that everyone will appreciate. Remember that not every person will share your taste, so sticking to neutral colours is best when painting the interior of your house, and gray, beige and white are warm and inviting and will set the perfect vibe whenever a potential buyer walks into your house. There are a variety of neutral colours, so you can find something you like, and you don’t have to worry about your house feeling cold or boring.

When selling your house, you need your property to be presentable and neutral tones will help in this regard. Make sure you cannot see the previous colour underneath, and take your time when selecting paint colours because there are so many shades to choose from. A very popular option is greige, a warm shade of gray that is also similar to beige, so you will have a ton of options because neutral colours are versatile, and buyers will be able to imagine their personal décor within the home. This is because neutral colours can be paired with any type of furniture as this colour will complement any couch or dining set, and buyers will not have to worry about repainting the home.

In addition to the right colours, you also have to consider the finish because certain types are better suited for specific rooms. A glossy finish, for example, is ideal for high-traffic areas like kitchen walls because these surfaces will be easy to clean. A high-gloss finish would also be perfect for bathrooms, while a satin finish would be better suited for a living room. For your bedrooms, an eggshell finish is recommended.

Earthy tones are also very popular, and these, too, will help you sell your home. Beige, light gray, off-white, and very light blues can be considered, and if you really think a statement would benefit the sale of your house, you can consider an accent wall for the bedrooms or living room. Blue is a great choice because it is simple but bold, and greens are also nice because it’s a calming colour that will remind you of nature.
