You Ask, We Answer: What Paint Colors Are Most Popular with Homebuyers?

You may have heard that Connecticut homebuyers want to be able to picture themselves in the home you’ve just listed for sale. It’s one of the reasons your Calcagni Real Estate agent may have encouraged you to streamline or hide the amount of personal touches and photos you have around the house. But homebuyers are also susceptible to paint colors, and today, we’re diving in to what paint colors are most popular with homebuyers.

Warm up your kitchen

A classic white kitchen is a classic for a reason: It never goes out of style. From keeping things looking fresh to making the most out of the light filtering in, white can make even small kitchens feel more spacious and modern—and, as a bonus, it goes with every kind of furniture!

The other color homebuyers like to see in kitchens these days? A warm grey. Whether you use this hue to paint an island, cabinets, or even on your walls, it can add depth and dimension to your kitchen while looking warm, inviting, and of-the-moment.

Accent your living room’s light

Wondering how to make your living room appeal to potential homebuyers? Prime your deep paint color and grab the paintbrush, because buyers respond very well to a bright white living room. Not only does it present as fresh and clean, but it helps give the impression of being a bright space that’s been well cared for, and ready to welcome them home.

Keep it neutral in the bedroom

We love a moody hue in the bedroom—graphite grey or olive green, anyone?—but homebuyers may not. When it comes to appealing to potential buyers, going with soft shades of white, light taupe, or even light grey create a clean but soothing aesthetic that elicits feelings of cozying up and letting the stress of the day melt away. Which is what everyone wants from their bedroom, isn’t it?

Evoke a spa getaway in the bathroom

While white will always be an attractive option for bathrooms, accenting with soft blue hues can evoke the feeling of being in a spa or by the water—both associations that feel welcoming while keeping things looking fresh, clean, and modern. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, painting a vanity pale blue or even a single accent wall can take the bathroom in your Connecticut home to the next level. Feeling extra creative? Add a pale blue ceiling to your light and bright bathroom for an unexpected pop of color that says, “the sky’s the limit!”
