How to Choose Paint Colors to Sell Your St Louis Condo or Home

Real Estate Agent with The Fisher Group / ReMax Results

When you're ready to sell your St Louis Condo or Home, you want to make sure it's attractive to potential buyers. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for your home, but with all the paint colors available to you, you may wonder which colors are best.

There are two primary things to consider:

•1.      Function. What is the room primarily used for? Some rooms are easy to label. After all, there are only one or two uses for the kitchen or bathroom. But what about great rooms or family rooms?  Rooms like that are most often used for relaxation and recovery from a busy day, and, therefore, should be painted in soothing shades of blue or green. Busier rooms, like the kitchen, can handle stronger colors like red, orange, or bright yellow. 

•2.      Size. Generally, the smaller the room the lighter the wall color. Lighter colors make rooms look bigger, while darker colors make rooms look smaller. Your bathrooms and smaller bedrooms will mostly likely look better with a lighter shade than your living room or family room. Since colors are part of a spectrum, you can find a shade of any color that will work for you.

Buyers  like to picture themselves living in their Condo or Home in St Louis before they buy it. This is why you should stick to neutral colors throughout your home.  As your buyers walk through, they can imagine their own furniture and art and belongings up against a white or cream colored wall. It's a little trickier to do this when the walls are bright orange.
