What Paint Colours Increase Home Value?

When it comes to adding value to your home, there’s more than one way to go. Some of the first things that come to mind are getting some heavy duty landscaping done or adding a secondary suite in Calgary. But there are other less invasive methods of increasing the curb appeal and overall value of your home, like choosing the right paint colour. Let’s find out which paint colours are effective at increasing the value of your home.

Why Add Value With Paint Instead of a Secondary Suite In Calgary?

Large renovations projects like adding a secondary suite in Calgary are surefire ways to increase the value of your home, but that can take a lot of time and money you may not be willing to spend. A simple paint job is a much easier and cost-effective way to add value if you are selling your home, especially if you are hoping to sell quickly.

Painting is a great way to cover up blemishes in your walls like picture holes, it can make your home look more neutral, increasing appeal to more buyers, and it can give the entire house a cohesive look and feel.

Paint Colours to Use Instead of Adding A Secondary Suite In Calgary

Front Door

It might not be the first place you think about painting in your house, but a well-painted front door can make a big impression on prospective buyers. The front door is one of the first things people notice when looking at a new house, so make sure yours looks fresh. The best colours to paint a front door are navy blue, dark gray or charcoal.

For the same reasons as the front door, a nice coat and colour for the exterior of your home is very important. Some of the best colours for home exteriors are shades of beige and gray.


The colours that increase the value of a kitchen have shifted slightly over the years. Still, you can never go wrong with a classic shade of yellow or light/soft-gray blue. 

Living Room

Using neutral colours for a living room or secondary suite in Calgary tends to be more appealing to prospective buyers. Keep it simple with light beige, pale taupe, or oatmeal.

Bedroom, Bathroom & Dining Room

In general, home buyers like calming colours for these three rooms. To get the best value for a paint job, choose a light grayish-blue colour.
