One of the most common redecorating ideas, especially when funds are limited, is to apply a fresh coat of paint. Repainting tends to make the whole room look new and fresh. Depending on which colors you use, the room may even take on a larger appearance. Forrent.com can help with suggestions if you are unsure about what colors would be appropriate.
Keep in mind that you may want to choose colors that are neutral if you plan to put the house, or condo, on the market. If you’ve always wanted to paint your kitchen bright yellow or red, that’s great as long as you plan to stay there for an extended amount of time. Otherwise, try to choose colors that are more tame, such as antique white or a light cream color. Not only do these colors match nearly everything else, but they will make the room look more inviting, homey, and larger. Darker colors will make the room look smaller and can actually leave a potential home buyer feeling a bit depressed.
