5 Living Room Remodel Ideas That Pay Off

Choose the Perfect Color Palette

John Lum Architecture

In no other room of the house is color so important as in the living room. Whether it’s used for hanging out, watching movies, reading, or sipping wine, the living room always gets plenty of face time. With so much attention focused on this area, the color scheme must be spot-on perfect.

Interior painting is usually one of those no-brainer ROI projects. Because the cost of tools and materials is so incredibly low, you’re sure to realize great returns in buyer appeal.

But you’ll need to choose a living room color palette that appeals to a majority of buyers. White, gray, beige, and other neutrals lead the pack in terms of colors that tend to be mutually liked. Brown, gold, and earthy orange push the living room’s color register to bolder reaches, capturing the attention of would-be buyers. Deep blue living rooms communicate a sense of rich tradition, while lighter blues evoke the breezy, carefree feeling of a day at the seaside.
