Paint Tips - Preparing your house to sell!

Painting Your House Before Selling

If you are preparing your house to sell and need to paint the interior, below are some tips to help you choose the best color.

  1. Paint your ceiling a light cream color instead of flat white.
  2. Do not use different bright paint colors in each room. Make sure the colors are light and blend well together.
  3. If you prefer to use the same light color throughout, hang pictures with color to assure your home won't look too bland.
