Paint Colors to Avoid in Your Miami Home

Monday, March 4, 2019

No matter if you are updating your recently-purchased home or you are trying to make an immediate impression on homebuyers as they walk through your house, a fresh coat of paint can make a difference. This is a simple upgrade that is usually inexpensive, but it gives off the impression that the home has been well maintained and cared for. To truly reap the benefits of new paint, it is important that you choose your paint colors wisely. The wrong color can send buyers running away. Here are several paint colors to avoid in your Miami home.

1. Dark Colors

Many experts agree that when it comes to your Miami home’s interior walls, you should stay away from dark colors such as blacks, grays, and browns. These colors can instantly make a room feel dark and gloomy. They are difficult to paint over and they don’t pair well with much home decor. Now, this doesn’t mean you need to stay clear of these paint colors all together. In fact, by painting your front door a shade of black, you can increase your home’s value by $6,000. Kitchen cabinets are another popular area in the home for these darker colors.

2. Trendy Colors

Remember that trends come and go. What is trendy today may not be as popular in a few months. You should avoid painting multiple rooms throughout your home trendy colors as your home will quickly seem out of date. If you are painting, it is best to choose timeless, neutral colors such as tans, light grays, light blues, etc. If you really want to incorporate trendy colors throughout your living space consider home décor accessories such as curtains, throw pillows, rugs, etc., that can easily be replaced if needed.

3. Colors that Bring Out the Wrong Emotions

Did you know that colors are associated with various emotions? For example, blues and greens can make you feel calm and serene while red evokes feelings of power and rage. As you think about the colors you want in a space, think about the emotions you are trying to display. In a bedroom, you may not want bright reds that make you feel more overwhelmed and anxious but lighter blues which help bring a more focused, calm feeling.

You should not choose your Miami home’s paint color on impulse. There are many paint colors to avoid when updating and decorating your home. For more home-staging tips or if you are ready to sell your home, contact real estate agent Carla Oliva today.
