A few points about image
Even in a first-rate living environment like Delta Hawaii, there are a few things to consider. Paint colors in your home are among the top considerations.
Choosing paint colors actually do impact home values. So, it’s more than just that the color meets the eyes. Your first concern of course, is to select colors that you enjoy and feel work right visually. Although people rarely leave Delta Hawaii, it does happen, so selecting your interior paint colors is crucial.
A Zillow analysis of more than 32,000 photos from residential properties found that specific colors can either boost or lower a home’s value. The age of the home, the date of the transaction and location were compared to the sale prices of homes with white walls versus those with more colorful paint.
Color, it turns out, makes a big impact on the home owner and if the home is ever up for sale, paint color can serve as a powerful advantage for added value.
Studies show that certain colors can put off buyers, especially the application of darker colors.
Some paint manufacturers now offer online tools to upload your photos and apply different paint shades to the rooms. Check out Sherwin-Williams or Glidden for paint sample websites.
Blue is among the most appetizing color for kitchens. In 2016, yellow kitchens sold for $1,300 more. But in 2017, the preferences have shifted to light blue to soft gray-blue kitchens, which earn you a premium.
Blue has always been considered a calming color. Perhaps that’s why buyers prefer bedrooms painted in these cool shades. This year’s favorite blue shades are light cerulean to cadet blue. Bedrooms painted with these tints receive a premium value.
The overarching advantage is in the bathroom, where blue or purple hues are superbly received.
Colors and room combinations that had the biggest negative impact:
- Blue living room
- Yellow kitchen
- Medium brown, taupe or stucco home exterior
- Red dining room
- White bathroom
