Home owners are not
shying away from using more color in their homes. Nearly two-in-three home
owners say they would like to add color in their home, particularly in the
living and family room, followed by bedroom and bathroom, according to the
National Home Design and Color Survey by Sherwin-Williams, a survey of 1,450
of the home owners surveyed say they believe a room or area needs paint.
What’s more, one in
five home owners say they prefer a colorful paint palette, such as rich and
dark or bold and bright. So do not be afraid to try a new color, you can always
paint over it if you decide to sell and others find it less appealing than you
The hottest hues?
One-third of home
owners – or about 32 percent – say they prefer color palettes featuring warm
neutrals with hints of red, yellow, or brown. Twenty-five percent prefer cool
neutrals with hints of blues or greens.
The survey also found
some differing color preferences among age groups. For example, home owners 18
to 34 years old tended to say they prefer rich and dark color palettes while
those 65 and older tended to prefer soft, light palettes. You can always go to
your local hardware store and browse through the paint colors, or even call a
professional decorator to give you some tips on what crazy colors may work in
your space! I have always found white rather boring, and like for rooms to “pop”
when you walk in. If you are anything like me, you may want to call someone who
paints’ for a living to make sure it turns out looking its best!!

"Don helped me and my wife Carolyn successfully sell our home. Don worked diligently to sell our house. The selling process occurred during the weak time of real estate marketing. His efforts were continuous and we found him devoting extra effort and going out of his way to promote our property. He kept himself readily available to contact by responding quickly when called. We greatly appreciated his excellent service"
