Thinking of selling your home? Our in-home decorating experts say that staged homes sell faster and at higher price points than those that are not. Choosing the right paint colors is an effective, budget-friendly way of showcasingand beautifying your home, and Benjamin Moore has several colors that help improve your chances of a quick and profitable home sale.

Benjamin Moore Neutral Paints vs Strong, Bold Colors

Going with neutral colors at your home’s main entrance prevents potential buyers from getting distracted by your style. You want your buyers to envision their own style and décor in that space. But by neutral, we don’t mean cool whites and grays. Subtle colors in rich, neutral hues often enhance a buyer’s experience; bold, dominating colors should be covered with natural-looking neutrals, such as Benjamin Moore’s Barley, Stonehouse or Providence Olive – all of which contain color warmer tones of yellow, beige and gray, respectively.

Wallauer’s Design Center Experts: Ditch the Wallpaper for Fresh Paint

If your home features wallpaper with outdated or intricate designs that are potentially distracting, consider removing the wallpaper and giving the walls a fresh coat of low-sheen neutral paint for an updated look. Choosing a low-sheen paint visually cuts down on surface imperfections. We see a lot of success and customer satisfaction with colors Benjamin Moore interior paints: Carrington beige, Shaker beige and Nantucket Gray for refreshing and updating, which includes adding a new coat of paint to architectural details and features in the home.

Paint Walls and Moldings the Same Color to Enlarge a Small Space

If you want to enlarge the spaces in your home and give it a clean, decluttered look, we at Wallauer’s Design Center recommend a lighter in value paint in the same neutral color scheme. Light, clean, uncluttered room always appear spacious – something most homebuyers find desirable. Think light, neutral colors to bring a room back to life, such as Manchester Tan, Monroe Bisque, and Camouflage. If the room is very small, consider painting the walls and the molding the same color to visually heighten the walls.
