Selecting This Paint Color Will Increase Your Home's Value by $5,400

Posted by Katie Walsh on Nov 17, 2017 8:31:16 PM

If you have ever planned an interior painting project, you have probably been stuck selecting which color to paint with.  Zillow, a real estate website, recently did some research on homes and colors in relation to sale prices, and explained it all in their 2017 Paint Color Analysis. It revealed “blue” as a magic color in your bathroom, claiming some homeowner’s saw up to $5,400 more than expected when selling their homes. Not just any shade of blue will do though; more specifically “hues of powder blue or light periwinkle”. And if you have a darker blue in your dining room, you could see about $1,926 more than expected. Kitchens with light blue, or blue bedrooms, also got about $1,809 more. There’s certainly nothing there to be “blue” over.
