The Power of Paint

paintLooking for the most economical way to freshen up your home? The answer-paint! Whether you need to freshen up your home to sell or add personality to your new home, paint can be the most powerful, economical way to transform a room.

When preparing your house for sale pick a neutral color. Creamy whites and soft tans make rooms feel clean, warm and welcoming. If you are unsure what paint color will be best for your home, our home stager can help you pick a color. Even if you already have neutral color paint inside your house, a fresh coat will help make it feel “move in ready” to buyers.

It is best to use the most common combination of gloss-finish paint for wood and trim surfaces and eggshell or satin finish for walls. The slight bit of sheen in a satin finish makes it easy to clean and resist fingerprints. Ceilings should get a flat finish.

A fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your home is as important as the inside, since this is what potential buyers see first.

It is not necessary to hire the most expensive, high-end painter you can find, a reasonably priced painter using economical paint will give your home the fresh look it needs to sell. Or if you’re up for the challenge, head to your neighborhood paint supplier, roll up your sleeves and start rolling on the paint!
