Changing the paint color in your bathroom might be the cheapest and easiest way to drastically increase the sales price of your home. Most people know that a fresh coat of paint can help sell a home. Yet, the color you paint your bathroom can make your home sell for a great deal more, according to an analysis by Zillow.

Analysts at Zillow compared over 32,000 listing photos. The photos came from homes across America that sold. Then, they determined which colors performed the best in various rooms. One of the most striking variables for selling price was the color of the bathroom walls.

What Bathroom Color Sells The Best?

The statistics shows that homes with bathrooms painted blue or purple sold higher on average. Specifically, the colors were light powder blue to periwinkle. How much more? Get this. That $50 investment for a can of powder blue paint might bring a hefty return. Homes with bathrooms in these colors sold for $5,440 more on average.

Now, many homeowners think that you can’t go wrong with eggshell white paint. After all, it’s a neutral color. Right? Maybe it’s too neutral for a bathroom though, because homes with bathrooms painted off-white or eggshell white sold for a whopping $4,035 less on average, according to Business Insider.

So, if you are trying to sell your home, consider a quick bathroom update. A can of paint is one of the cheapest investments you can make. If the paint is for the bathroom, the return on your investment might amaze you!
