Home Sellers: 5 popular colors to consider this spring

Have you been debating updating your home with a fresh coat of paint? Do you plan to sell your this year or sometime in the near future?

If so, you might want to consider popular trends in housing painting before you get dump money into a new look and feel that might not work.  After all, the average homeowner spends about $2,000 on paint when deciding to remodel.  That's why below we have highlighted some of the top trending colors in interior paint right now to help you make the best decision for your home:

  • Neutrals and Earth Tones - Greens, browns, beige; these are all colors that homeowners are infusing into their homes lately.  Similarly earthy tones are incorporated with eco-friendly alternatives such as LED lighting, double-paned windows and "green" flooring such as bamboo or vinyl.  Neutral and earthy tones are also quite a bit easier to match and decorate your home with.  
  • Grey: Grey is such a hot color right now, particularly because it's also neutral but can be paired with bright colors easily.  Because grey is such a versatile color you won't have to repaint over it before you sell your home or decide to redecorate.  
  • Pastels: With spring in the air its obvious that pastels are in right now.  Pastels are great for bedroom walls, nurseries, or dining areas.  You can match pastels with like colors or choose bright decor to go with it as well.  
  • Pantone Radiant Orchid: Pantone's radiant orchid shade was announced as the color of the year in 2014.  Many homeowners may choose to decorate their homes in this shade because it works well in my rooms of the house and can be paired with any neutral color.  Keep in mind, this is the hot color of 2014 but 2015 could be something completely different.  
  • Blue: The use of different shades of blue is very in right now.  The color blue is comforting to the human eye and often brings about thoughts of the ocean, the sky, and other recognizable symbols.  Often times it's used in living areas or bedrooms in a light robin egg's shade or a darker navy shade.  Lucky, blue matches with many colors such as green, brown, or purple when it comes to decorations.

Choosing paint colors is definitely the hardest part so once you have that accomplished, give yourself a high five.  From here, the next step is to buy the paint and start prepping the walls.  If you're not familiar with painting procedures, there are plenty of Youtube videos and other articles that explain the best approaches to painting your walls.

If you have to, consider hiring a housing painting company that is knowledgeable about various paints and colors and can help you make the right decision for your home.  Painting your home should be a fun and exciting project but just make sure to decide what colors you want to use and whether you want to do it yourself (DIY) or hire someone to help.
