Last year, Zillow’s Paint Color Analysis showed that blue was a hot color; homes with light blue bathrooms were selling $5,440 more than expected, and homes with blue kitchens, bedrooms, dining rooms, or front doors were also selling for almost $2,000 more compared to similar homes with white walls. We expect blue to continue as one of the more popular color trends for 2019; no matter the shade, it is a calming and inviting color for the home.
