Often times my clients (real estate agents) have made upgrade/improvement suggestions to their sellers before I am scheduled to stage their home for sale. One of the most common suggestions is neutralize wall coverings/finishes - whether it is to remove wallpaper/borders and repaint or repaint over bold colors. Listed below is a something I put together at an agent's request that lists two types of Sherwin Williams Paint colors for the three different types of trim most commonly used in homes.
Neutral Paint Suggestions for Home Staging/Selling
The best way to select the perfect paint color when selling or decorating is to have a professional select the color in the rooms to be painted. When this is not feasible in the interest of time, the colors listed below have worked well for many home sellers. A seller can't go wrong with neutral colors.
1). Rooms with white painted trim:
- SW #6142 "Macademia"
- SW #6141 "Softer Tan"
2). Rooms with oak trim:
- SW #7036 "Accessible Beige"
- SW #7529 "Sand"
3). Rooms with dark trim:
- SW #7526 "Maison Blanche"
- SW #6148 "Wool Skein "
* For a 25% discount, use the Ross Designs pricing at Sherwin Williams. Use the ProMar 200 Brand in an Eggshell finish. Sherwin Williams can color match any color from any other paint manufacturer.
**Recommend purchasing a small sample container of the selected paint and test it in the rooms to be painted before investing larger quantities of paint.
*** To see these colors before purchasing, you can stop at any Sherwin Williams store and ask the staff to help you find the color swatch, or you can look at their website (this is not a good indication of actual color). To look at the colors on the website, go to http://www.sherwinwilliams.com/, select "site map" at the very bottom, click on "Color Visualizer" and type the name of the color in the "find paint" area.
