How To Increase The Value Of Your Home By Choosing The Right Paint Colours

Colour plays a significant role in the value of homes, and it’s often recommended that homeowners paint their houses before listing them online.

As previously thought, neutral paint colours like white, taupe and eggshell helped sell houses better, but a new study suggests that you should be bolder when selecting a new paint colour. For five key rooms in your home, these paint colours are the most valuable, as well as the worst picks.

Living room

It is best to paint your living room a shade of oatmeal, light beige, or brown rather than blue. Shades of blue and grey are the worst colours to use in your living room.

Dining room

Pale grey or slate blue are the best colours to choose for your dining room. It is not only possible for potential buyers to visualize themselves living in a home that is painted in blue or pale grey, but they also make the walls feel bigger. Brick red and terracotta are the worst colours that will reduce your value.


To sell your home for more money, you should choose a light blue colour or a soft grey blue. A light blue colour complements white countertops and cabinets, so it works especially well in bathrooms and kitchens. Yellow is the worst colour for your kitchen.


The value of your home will skyrocket if you paint your bedroom light blue instead of white or pink.


A different shade of blue or purple is the best choice for your bathroom. Homes with these colours sold for more than those with white walls. Off-white or eggshell are the worst choices.

If you’re planning to give your home a fresh coat of paint, make wise choices about how you spend your money. When displayed in listing photos and videos, colour can be an effective tool for attracting buyers.
