The color of a room can make a huge impact on the way we feel, however, are those emotions going to motivate a buyer to make an offer on your home? Choosing the right paint colors for both the exterior and interior of your home can greatly impact your resale value. 

According to Zillow’s 2018 paint color analysis, the biggest color boost was from a black or charcoal gray front door. It was reported that this simple change could boost the value of your home for more than $6,000 than expected. 

The kitchen is the most important room in the house. Zillow reported incorporating two-tone cabinetry has shown to increase a sale price by about $1500. For instance, white cabinets paired with a dark blue or black island have shown to be top-performing home listings. 

As for wall colors, you can never go wrong with neutral colors like tan and light blues. Pops of colors such as darker blues or grays can even be a great choice if used as an accent!
