This trend started in 2017, but will become even more popular in 2018. Think about adding wooden walls with etched designs in your bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms.

Do you need help from a residential painter to get these looks in the new year?
If you are considering to put your home on the market, you might want to think about ways to increase your property value with home improvement projects. The value of your home can depend on a number of thing, but in the end, it can rely heavily on the appearance of your home and that includes the exterior paint.
Buyers do not want to worry about having to deal with expensive repairs or home improvements when purchasing a home. A new paint job is just one less than for buyers to have to worry about. Plus, since the appearance of your home plays a large role in the property value, many times you will be asked the last time you painted. If it happens to be recent, this is a beneficial selling point that could increase the value easily. It is worth spending the extra money to hire a residential painter so you know the job is getting done right.
Color is important and can make the house look more appealing by making it look larger with light-colored shades or making it look smaller with dark-colored shades. It often reported that more buyers are attracted to light colors like neutrals, whites and creams. So, be mindful when choosing the main colors of your home along with the trim colors.
Keep in mind the balance of the colors of your home’s exterior paint. Try to keep darker colors at the bottom of the property to avoid a top-heavy feel. This can be accomplished by using deep-colored shrubs in front of your home. Also, pay attention to the color of your door. This happens to be a big first impression to buyers.
Since Arizona sees some serious heat most of the year, it is important to protect your vinyl siding from heat damage by using the same color or even a lighter color.
It might be a big investment at the time, but updating your home’s exterior paint can really pay off when selling your home or when you need to compete with other properties in your neighborhood. Consumer Reports report that updating your home’s exterior paint can increase the property value by 2-5 percent. Focusing on the paint of your exterior is an affordable way to significantly increase your property value, especially when compared to vinyl siding installation.
