Are you looking to sell your house in the future?
Thinking about a fresh paint job?
Choose carefully or it could affect the asking price.
According to Credit.com, there are four colors that turn buyers off:
“1. Off-White or Eggshell
You don’t have to give up gallery-white walls entirely, though. Painting a room white isn’t always a bad choice, especially if the space has great natural light, according to designer Emily Henderson. But if a space is small or dark (like some kitchens), white walls can make a room look “dead” and “flat.”2. Dark Brown
The color is so disliked by some people that the Australian government considered using it on cigarette packaging to make smoking less appealing, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. (They went with a brownish olive green instead.)3. Terracotta
The negative reaction to orange walls isn’t too surprising, considering surveys have found it’s one of the least-liked colors in the world. (Blue is the most popular color by far, followed by red and green.)
Gray is trendy color right now, but all grays aren’t created equal. While dove or light gray was a hit in living rooms, helping to boost a home’s selling price by $1,104, dark gray was a dud.”Source: “4 Colors You Should Never Paint Your Home,” Credit.com (Aug. 22, 2016)
