You might not think that painting your bathroom this color would make any difference in the value of your home, but you’d be wrong. A study by Remodeling Magazine found that homes with blue bathrooms sold for $5,000 more than those without (and this is just one example). People associate colors like blue and green with cleanliness and freshness. This association can have a dramatic impact on people’s desire to live there!
According to a recent Zillow study, which looked at which paint colors buyers are willing to pay extra for, pale sky blue was the most popular. Pale sky blue received a score of 93 out of 100 in bathrooms, with participants willing to pay 1.6 percent more, which might increase the property’s value by $4,698. (These figures were based on a typical home in the United States: $290,000.)
The survey was conducted on 1,300 participants who were both current or prospective homebuyers. The photos were presented to the individuals and they graded them based on their desire to see the homes and buy them. Each individual also offered their opinion on how much they would be prepared to pay for a property, which contributed to the overall score.
Paint in the bedroom and kitchen, according to the research, may also have an impact on a property’s value. While dark blue bedrooms (such as unpleasant tones) can raise the price by $1,500, mint green kitchens can decrease the price by almost $2,000.
The color mint green isn’t the only one that elicits criticism in the kitchen. In fact, according to another Zillow survey, bright red sells for $1,500 more than other hues.

In addition to the blue paint, light-colored countertops and cabinets were also found to be attractive. A study from the National Kitchen & Bath Association showed that buyers are willing to pay more for kitchens with white or lighter colored cabinetry. In fact, it’s been shown time and again that dark colors tend not only to appear smaller but can also absorb heat in a kitchen (and we all know what happens when you try cooking up something delicious on a hot day).
White is another color whose benefits have long been documented: It makes rooms feel larger than they actually are because of its brightness and reflects natural sunlight better than other colors do so your room will always look sunny clean no matter how dreary the weather outside maybe!
In this blog post, we’ve seen how the color blue can have a dramatic impact on your home’s value. If you’re considering painting your bathroom or another space in your home light blue to increase its worth, be sure not to forget about other factors like cabinetry and countertops. Not only will these decisions help make it more appealing for potential buyers but they’ll also ensure that you don’t end up with an unpleasant-looking kitchen because of dark colors absorbing heat!
