Neutral Paint Colors That Sell a Home Fast

January 20, 2020

If you are looking to sell your home, one of the easiest ways to maximize its value is to create a blank slate for potential buyers. I have lots of tips on staging your home to sell quickly, but adding a neutral paint color to the walls takes it to another level.

If your home has bold wall colors, applying a fresh coat of paint will neutralize your space and change the entire feel of an entire room. Today I am sharing 7 of my favorite neutral paint colors that look great in every home. I generally stay in the “greige” family when it comes to color recommendations, but I added a few blue/greens that work great in bathrooms too.

Seven Neutral Paint Colors That Sell Homes

Alabaster by Sherwin Williams

Alabaster is a beautiful color that we are using in our current home. It is a creamy white that does not feel yellow. We have painted our new kitchen with the Alabaster color as well as our family room and living room. It has proven to be a great backdrop for our decor and design of the space.

I also used Alabaster as the backdrop for my little boy’s bedroom makeover. It is the perfect neutral for him to grow into and decorate at all ages.

Polar Bear by Behr Paint

I have used Polar Bear in a few of the rooms in my home and it is nice, warm white. I applied this paint color to the walls in my laundry room and it was the perfect shade to warm up the white and black color palette.

It can have a slight undertone of pink in some settings. I see it come out a bit in my master bathroom where there is no natural light.

Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore

Revere Pewter is one of my favorite greige colors! We used this in our second home in the loft/playroom on our second floor. It truly is the perfect mix of grey and beige. It never made the space feel too dark or too yellow. I would absolutely use this color again in my home and recommend it often.

Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams

Repose Gray is another beautiful greige that I have used frequently in my homes. In our third house, I chose Repose Gray as the inspiration of our homes color palette. When I wanted the walls a little darker, I ticked down one shade to Mindful Gray. When I wanted the walls lighter, I went up one shade to Eider White. This is a great way to keep your home consistent but changing the paint color in each room. Here is the greige color in the basement guest bathroom in our third flip house.

I used these four colors when renovating our third home and it kept the design cohesive throughout the house.

Eider White by Sherwin Williams

Eider White is the perfect neutral to make a space feel clean and fresh while still creating some dimension against white trim. I have used this in flip houses, rental properties as well as our personal home. This is a consistent neutral color that I know I can always count on.

We used this light greige in our master bedroom to give it a light and airy feel.

We also used it in the kitchen of our fourth flip house.

Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams

Agreeable Gray is another fantastic “greige” option that is used as the backdrop in many designed homes. It is a warm gray that can hint towards a beige brown in some light. Just like its name, this paint color is quite agreeable with all homes.

Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams

Sea Salt is the perfect blue/green/gray paint color for your home! It is a great neutral and works really well with the farmhouse style that is popular right now.

Silver Crest by Benjamin Moore

If you are looking to add a little more color into your home, Silver Crest is a great option for bathrooms. This light green is warm and inviting with its hint of gray. This is the perfect neutral to make your bathroom feel like a spa.
