To paint or not to paint , that is the question.
Whether selling your home, or if you have recently purchased, painting will probably be in your immediate future.
It is the least expensive home improvement with the biggest wow factor.
For sellers: you are not so much adding $$$ to your sales price by painting, rather you are not taking away from the bottom line. When buyers are looking to purchase the property, they will deduct the cost of painting from the asking price. Having a fresh neutral paint eliminates that even if it isnt their color choice. More $$ to the bottom line is always a good thing. It also makes a room feel new and fresh !
For new homeowners, Even if you have a freshly painted home, often times you want to put your own handprint and style with a different color paint. Do your homework and find out what kind of paint is currently on the walls/trim. You may need to use a special primer to help hide color or to help your paint choice adhere.
Sometimes just a fresh coat of paint on the trim is all the room needs! Lighter colors brighten areas , and a single bold color is still often used as an accent wall.
