The best way to freshen up a condo is to change the paint! For resale purposes this is a relatively inexpensive and worthwhile investment that adds volumes to value. Whether you have small children that took to crayons on the wall or you have pets that caused odor, a fresh coat of paint really makes a difference. Further, it can add a new dimension to a room that formerly had seemed small. There are so many colors to choose from that it may seem like a daunting task, however some to certainly avoid for condos are dark colors. They have a tendency to make a room appear smaller and by and large condo buyers are looking for those extra square feet, so light is best. Below are a list of colors that are trending in Miami and how you can use them to give your condo a facelift. For more tips visit our resource center!
Pale Peach: A pale peach in a bedroom or a bathroom have a calming effect, literally. We recommend this in condominiums because the mood altering benefits as well as the combination of peach and brighter hues, such as magenta make a room pop and are signatures in Miami Style.
Classic Eggshell: This is a failproof color that never loses its’ appeal. From kitchens, to bedrooms, to baths, to family rooms, eggshell really compliments everything. If you have bohemian accents, which is a popular style, it looks amazing with it, and you can repaint without the worry of having to paint a million layers over a dark color.
Light Blue: We recommend light blue for baths and bedrooms. Feng Shui principles dictate this, and we have found that it really does enhance the serenity of a room. Simple light blue and white make a beautiful bathroom and adding in touches of brown warm things up.
Beige: Beige is an excellent color for a living room or a kitchen. It goes well with stainless steel appliances and with wooden accents it can be a very inviting and warm color, for really any room. We see lots of beige in homes overlooking the ocean along with whites, the contrast is very tranquil.
