Best 2022 Paint Colors? Same as Last Year
Some version of green is most paint companies’ “color of the year,” but for sellers hoping to maximize profit, nothing changed: Stick with close-to-white shades.
NEW YORK – Greens may dominate paint firms’ “hottest color of the year” lists, but neutral colors still reign for sellers seeking the largest buyer pool. Four out of five (81%) of interior design experts recently surveyed say whites and creams are the best colors to use when selling a house in 2022, according to the Paint & Color Trends 2022 Report conducted by Fixr, a home improvement resource.
“Whites and creams make a neutral, clean, fresh backdrop for many rooms,” according to the report. “You can still include color in your textiles if you want to add personality to the space, but it can make it easier for prospective buyers to see their own furnishings in a space when looking at a white or light-colored wall.”
On the exterior of homes for sale, white is the most frequently recommended color for the second consecutive year, according to Fixr, receiving 58% of the vote. Off-white also increased in popularity, nabbing 41% in this year’s survey.
“White and off-white can both make a home look fresh, clean and new regardless of age,” the study found. “These colors have nearly universal appeal, helping improve the curb appeal of a home and making it more likely to sell in a timely way.”
