If you look through enough articles on my blog, you will begin to notice a heavy concentration on storage/organization (in addition to my love for woodworking). One particular area that seems to garner an excessive amount of interest is closets. Everyone wants to know how to get the most out of their own clothing storage space.

A few weeks ago, I posted an article on which paint colors would increase your home’s sale price (at least for 2017). However, several of you were very interested in knowing which colors should be avoided – i.e the worst paint choices. Well, I prefer to only write positive articles.

It is, by no means, intended to suggest that these colors are ugly.
Color is very subjective, and in the right design, any color can be beautiful. However, we must start somewhere. Therefore, I would say that you should avoid these paint colors when selling your home.
