Our team did this much needed radical color change last year in Cleveland. Purple is a great color, and we know a lot of people love it. We love it also, but this homeowner felt it was time for a change, and needed a new coat of paint anyways. We were more than happy to help, especially given some of the more intricate details along the front and back of the house which help make it so interesting.

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.
