To add value to your home it is suggested that you should paint kitchens and bathrooms as they are the most visited rooms in the house and are less personal than bedrooms.
But paint isn’t just for the walls, either. Kitchen updates aren’t complete without a refresh to the cabinet paint. Go with a neutral color to increase shine the shine of your cabinets and to help cover up any nicks and scratches on cabinet doors in the most cost-effective way possible.

Whites and off whites are great colors when painting bedrooms as they allow buyers to add their own pop of color in their heads, but earthy tones also look good to a potential buyer.
