Neutral Paint Colors That Can Add Value to Your Home

Fresh paint can do wonders to your space! Adding new paint colors can potentially increase your homes value too!


Color sets a tone and mood to rooms in your home. Here are paint colors that are on trend and make a big difference!

White

Great for: Kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, exteriors

If you're looking for a color that will brighten up your home, make spaces look and feel bigger and more inviting, you can't go wrong with white.


White is an especially good color for kitchens. White kitchens are the ultimate crowd-pleasers in my experience.


Sticking to a neutral color like a warm white can allow potential buyers to see themselves in a space—something that a bold color might get in the way of. Benjamin Moore's Chantilly Lace, for a soft white color that can be used on walls, ceilings, cabinets, and other spaces for a clean, crisp look.


Cream

Great for: Kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms

A warmer shade of white, cream is another neutral that can freshen up a space. Cream gives a room an inviting feel and can boost a home's perceived value by a few thousand dollars.


Light Blue

Great for: bedrooms, bathroom

A 2021 survey on Zillow found that light blue was the most popular color to paint a bathroom—and on average, could increase the value of a home by $5,000.


Light blue can make a bathroom look "inviting, comfortable and cozy, but also more spacious."


Once again, light blue is considered a neutral color, which is more likely to appeal to a wide range of styles and tastes.


Greige

Great for: Living rooms, bedrooms, and exteriors

Both gray and beige are excellent neutrals to paint interiors, but if you can't decide between the two, greige offers a combination.


Not only will greige give your home a warm, elevated look; it will increase its value, too. Repainting your living room a neutral color like gray, beige or light brown can add up to $2,000 in your home's value, which can be modernized with accents of white.


Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray as the perfect greige, and says the warm color will make the inside of your home "feel like a cashmere blanket."
