Paint Colour Does Matter

Did you know that by using certain paint colours in specific rooms, it can statistically increase your home's value?  

I found the paint colour 'Cheat Sheet' below via the Home Staging Resource website and thought it was really interesting!  Hard to know for sure; however, the Zillow* paint study, which looked at 32,000 homes, seems to confirm the conclusions.   I'll be keeping this in mind as I recommend paint colours for staging purposes (the cheat sheet references Benjamin Moore colours).

Here are a few before & afters from a home in Meaford that is being updated and staged.  Hollie Poulin & Tom Taylor from THC Total Home Care have been working on the painting and cleaning and I'm coming in behind to do the staging!

Here's another shot of the bathroom.  The entire house is being redone (inside and out); therefore, more pics will be coming!  The project should be completed end of this week.
