Should time and budget be a consideration in order of importance paint:
Living room: One of the most important rooms in a home. Where families relax and spend time. a slightly bolder colour such as a light brown, can work well in a living room to make it feel warmer and affable.
Kitchen: Also one of the most important rooms in the home. A kitchen can make it or break it for potential buyers, so a solid impression is important.
Bedrooms: Will be shown to potential home buyers, they won’t be as important as the kitchen and living room. Place more importance on the master bedroom to appeal to couples.
Bathrooms: Unless you own a palatial home, your bathrooms are going to be small. Like the kitchen, bathrooms – in particular the main bathroom for the master bedroom – can be a deal breaker. Lighter neutral colours will make the bathrooms appear bigger, but try not to make them too light or they will appear drab.
