How to Use Paint to Make

Your House More Appealing

 

ONE of the easiest ways to freshen up your home is with paint. It has one of the best returns for the money spent.  If you're selling, painting your exterior and/or interior walls can give a great return on investment — a potentially higher selling price for a relatively little investment on your part. 

Repair Blemishes

If you've got cracked or peeling paint, you'll certainly want to repair, caulk and repaint before you put your house on the market. Tired paint makes buyers think the house hasn't been well maintained.

Tone Down Your Color Scheme

While the colors in and on your home might appeal to you personally, it's important if you are selling your home that they appeal to the widest market possible. So that means avoiding bright, unusual colors and changing colors that were fashionable a few years ago but now look dated.

The safest bet is neutral tones. Avoid white in most situations, as this color can look clinical, and instead choose beiges and earth tones. Don't feel the need to use the same color throughout — if you can, choose shades that match with your furniture and fabrics.

Types of Paint

Very few walls are perfect.  The more imperfections in your walls, the flatter the finish should be, as this will  help blend those imperfections.

It is best to use washable paints in bathrooms and kitchens for easier clean up.

Don't Forget The Trim

Trim is often overlooked when painting.  Newly painted walls without newly painted trim makes the job look unfinished.  You should strongly consider repainting the trim with a fresh coat when you paint the walls.
