What’s the best paint color for selling a house?

When you’re selling your house, you want a neutral paint color that will appeal to just about all buyers and their individual decorating and furniture styles. If you choose too dark of a color, it will make the room feel small.  If you choose too light of a color, it will make the room feel sterile and cold.

In the early 2000s, the go to neutral color used by builders in their inventory homes in Spring Texas was Summertime by Pittsburgh Paints. But that was then and this now and buyers tastes have changed.  The Summertime paint color is now considered to be too light.

Kilim Beige spring texas homes

My go to color that I recommend to Spring Texas home sellers is Kilim Beige by Sherwin Williams.  The walls of the formal dining room in this photo have been painted Kilim Beige. It’s a great neutral color that makes baseboards, crown moldings, and fireplace surrounds stand out.  Kilim Beige also compliments dark and light counters and earth tone flooring.

If the tile and counter top colors are the gray tones, my go to color is Storm by Benjamin Moore. It’s a cool and light, medium tone of gray.
