Changing Seasons: TheStreet's Tips to Home Sellers.
For some, a change of season means more than just a change in weather. Selling a home can be a major step, which is why TheStreet came to Five Star Painting for advice on how homeowners can easily and effectively stage their home when they put it on the market.
A fresh coat of paint can be an affordable, simple way to give your home the makeover it needs to attract the right buyer. Our Five Star Painting of Dallas manager, Josh Christensen, provided more insight on what type of color palates to utilize.
"The best thing to do for your home is to paint a neutral tan or light gray color depending on the style of home you have," says Josh. "The last thing you want to do is have vibrant colors in any part of the home, which will impede the potential buyer from being able to visualize living there."
Popular Colors that Add Visual Space
When it comes to changing colors for a new season, you want to make sure you pick the best option for your space. Trulia and The Huffington Post agree. That’s why Trulia recently published their article on The 14 Most Popular Paint Colors, which can also help make rooms look and feel bigger!
Trulia came to Dan Schaeffer, owner of Five Star Painting of Austin for tips on go-to colors for homeowners looking to add visual space to their room. “Paint ceilings white and use lighter colors to make a room appear larger,” Schaeffer commented. Benjamin Moore Cloud White is always a popular option.
In addition, Schaeffer suggested that homeowners looking to paint with popular colors stick to the neutrals. “Think light grays, blues, and other neutral colors. You can also use an eggshell or satin finish to help reflect light.”
