You're Snowed In. Here's Some Reading Material...

Let Color Sell Your Home

While perusing through the Benjamin Moore website on my way to find the perfect paint color for my own home, I came across this article.  These days, mostly everyone stages or at least makes an effort to make their home presentable before putting it on the market.

It makes me laugh because I bought my home with a kitchen that featured navy blue countertops and kelly green paint on the walls (an interesting color choice), but 10 years ago there were phrases like "use your imagination", "it's only cosmetic", and "be open minded before we go in".  I guess that kind of thinking just doesn't exist anymore.  Nevertheless, here are a few tips to help make your home look its best before selling...

How to Stage Your Home with Color

Experts say that staged homes sell faster and for higher prices than those that are not, and paint color is a low-cost but effective way of showcasing your home. The following home staging tips and ideas will help in guiding your paint color choices. 

The colors potential buyers see when they enter your home should be neutral so that the buyers will not be distracted by someone else's style. They should see the walls of your home as a blank canvas on which to project their own preferences and style. But "neutral" doesn't necessarily mean white. Using subtle color can actually enhance the buyer's experience, so repaint walls that have strong colors with rich neutral hues.
Stage your home with Benjamin Moore's neutral paint colors: barley, 199; stone house 1039; and providence olive, HC-98.
Update and Refresh
If your wallpaper has a distracting design or is outdated, remove it and add a fresh coat of paint for a more current, updated look. A low-sheen product will help reduce the imperfections on walls and ceilings. You can also use color to highlight the architectural details and features of your home.
Refresh your home with paint colors from Benjamin Moore: carrington beige, HC-93; shaker beige, HC-45; and nantucket gray, HC-111.
Maximize Your Space
Light, clean, organized spaces appear larger. So clean and declutter, and give your walls a fresh coat of paint in a light neutral color to bring the room to life and make it seem more expansive. One home staging idea that can help expand your space visually: paint the moldings the same color as the wall, which gives an illusion of higher walls.
Stage your home with Benjamin Moore's paint colors that will maximize your space: manchester tan, HC-81; monroe bisque, HC-26; camouflage, 2143-40.
Refresh Outside Spaces
First impressions are everything, so besides trimming your hedges and grass, be sure your front door and any fencing or mailbox posts are freshly painted. And because buyers love decks, porches, and patios, also make sure they're freshly painted or stained.

Happy Painting!
