If you’re thinking about putting your house on the market, a fresh coat of paint is a cost-effective way to spruce it up. Its less expensive than redesigning and you can chose to have a professional do it or take the job on yourself.
A home that has been newly painted on the inside and out will not only look fresh and clean but will show that you take care of your property.
Paint the inside and out
First impressions last and you want curb appeal. A potential buyer needs to feel impressed from when they first set eyes on your home. Freshen up chipped or peeling paint on verandahs, window sills and ceilings in entertaining areas and fences. Areas that look weathered from exposure to sun and moisture will be given new life by just a simple coat of paint.
Give your front door a fresh coat. Here is where your colour can be a little bolder and add a touch of colour to give your entrance a statement.
Choosing the right colours
Neutral colours greys and lightly toned whites are all on trend and compliment light and dark furnishings. Painting the walls in these tones will not only create an effect of larger spaces but to also allow a potential buyer to visualise their own belongings within the space.
Whether you paint the interior and exterior or just some simple touch-ups here and there, painting your home can provide a clean fresh look that will be a worthwhile investment.
