When you’re considering selling your home the colour of the exterior greatly influences the curb appeal of the home. Drawing the interest of potential buyers and creating a good first impression can hinge on something as basic as the exterior paint colour. This is not the time to indulge your own quirky colour choices as you want to appeal to a wide range of potential buyers.
At Paintworks we have a few ideas to keep in mind when choosing the exterior paint colour for your home.
Keep it Neutral
While your preferences may run to bright and bold this is the time to stick to more neutral colours. Beiges, light brown or light green are bound to be more attractive to more potential buyers. Consider the area you live in as well if you live in a Maritime village your choice of colour will be quite different.
Know Your Neighbourhood
The exterior colour of your home should fit with the rest of the homes in your neighborhood. If you live in an area of heritage homes like Oak Bay or Fairfield here in Victoria the choice of colour will be influenced the nearby homes. If you live in a small town in the Maritimes that will call for different colour decisions. You want to pick a colour that is consistent with the era your home was built as well.
Don’t overlook the ability of your front door paint choice to make a statement all on it’s own. Be sure it fits the character of the neighbourhood and the style of your home and whether it’s heritage or contemporary will influence your decision.
We hope the above suggestions were helpful in making your colour choices. Still undecided? At Paintworks our house painters in Victoria can assist you or give a us a call when it’s time to paint your home’s exterior when you’re considering selling.
