There’s a Bathroom Paint Color That Could Increase Your Home’s Value

If you’re getting ready to sell your home, you’re probably talking to your Synergy Realty Network agent about small updates and fixes. One update may be painting rooms that have off-putting colors (think bright pink or black). Did you know that it’s also possible that some colors could improve your sales price?

Zillow did a study on paint colors and how they affect the home. In that study, they found that one color, in particular, could actually improve your profit on a home sale. That color is periwinkle blue. That doesn’t mean you should go out and paint your entire home periwinkle blue (in fact, we hope you don’t do that). Instead, paint your bathroom that shade of blue and you could get as much as $6,000 more for your house.

Zillow’s lifestyle expert, Amanda Pendleton, told Apartment Therapy what could be behind it. She says that could be because bathroom trends we're seeing right now, like white, pair really nicely with periwinkle. The other possible reason is an obvious one. The shade is calming and relaxing and could put potential buyers at ease immediately.

DecorPad has a page full of periwinkle and white bathroom ideas that could inspire you if you’re looking to try this out. See what they suggest here and talk to your Synergy Realty Network agent about what ideas are best for you.
