Paint Colors that Increase the Value of Your Manhattan Property

Posted on September 2, 2022

Painting for an apartment sale requires a completely different mindset than painting for your living space. A bright pink or green living room is going to hinder your home’s ability to get off the market fast, while other paint colors will accelerate it. The right colors will highlight your furniture and take your home to a whole new level. Our painting professionals have helped property owners throughout the Upper West Side area for apartment sales and know what paint colors sell and what doesn’t. In this article, we’ll go over colors that will help your apartment sell in the Upper West Side. Let’s get started!

The Classic White Walls

apartment upper west side white wallsWhite is without a doubt the most popular color for home sales. Whether it is the kitchen, the living room, or the bedrooms, it is hard to go wrong with white. The blank canvas allows prospective buyers to envision whatever they’d like on the walls. The color also makes spaces look larger than they are, which is admirable for prospective homeowners. Some of our favorite white paint colors include:

  • Snowbound by Sherwin-Williams
  • White Dove by Benjamin Moore
  • Carter Creme by Magnolia by Joanna Gaines

For Accents: Pale Blues

Our final recommendation is strictly for accents, such as kitchen cabinets or bathroom counters. If you’re really interested in moving away from the white/neutral color scheme, the bathroom or laundry room is an especially good place for blue tones. The color offers feelings of a clean, soft, and relaxing environment. Blue is also a great place for your home exterior! Here are our favorite shades of blue:

  • Headspace by Clare
  • Skylight from Farrow & Ball
  • Moonmist by Sherwin Wiliams
