If you are considering a home painting project to freshen up the interior of your Northern Virginia home, you want to avoid using colors that will detract from your space rather than complement it. You may love the color when you see a sample in the store, but then discover it looks entirely different when you apply it to your space.
All American Painting Plus, Reston’s leading interior painting contractors, ran across an interesting report regarding home interior colors you may want to avoid. Zillow, the giant online real estate site, has a subsidiary called Zillow Digs that captures and analyzes data on all the houses and condos listed on the real estate site. One of the subjects the company pursued was how the color of the interior walls affected the sales price of the property.
Zillow Dig took the interior colors from photos of 50,000 listings and compared those colors to the difference between the actual sales price and Zillow’s estimated value. With a 50,000 home sample, the results can’t be dismissed as anecdotal. It appears that some colors routinely lower the price of a home.
Here’s what they found.
Most of these findings appear to be counterintuitive until you dig a little deeper:
