Perfect Paint Choices for Staging Your Home

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.

 Neutralize
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.
Some suggestions: Benjamin Moore 'Barley 199', Benjamin Moore 'Stone House 1039' and Benjamin Moore 'Providence Olive HC-98'
Stage your home with Benjamin Moore's neutral paint colors: barley, 199; stone house 1039; and providence olive, HC-98.
If your wallpaper has a distracting design or is outdated, remove it and add a fresh coat of paint for a more current, updated look.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.
Some suggestions: Benjamin Moore 'Carrington beige HC-93' , Benjamin Moore 'Shaker Beige HC-45' and Benjamin Moore 'Nantucket Gray HC-111'
Refresh your home with paint colors from Benjamin Moore: carrington beige, HC-93; shaker beige, HC-45; and nantucket gray, HC-111.
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.
Some suggestions: Benjamin Moore 'Manchester Tan HC-81', Benjamin Moore 'Monroe Bisque HC-26' or Benjamin Moore 'Camouflage 2143-40'
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. 
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.

Great suggestions for front door: Benjamin Moore 'Dinner Party AF-300',  Benjamin Moore 'Yorktowne Green HC-133' and Benjamin Moore 'Tate Olive HC-112'
