Neutral paint is something that every home should have before it gets put on the market. Buyers won’t fall in love with homes that have bold or dark paint color, neon paint colors, or other personalized paint jobs that the current homeowners chose. A home should always get a fresh coat of neutral paint before potential buyers see it. But that doesn’t mean that homeowners are limited to builder’s grade beige or white when it comes to painting colors. There is a wide range of new neutral shades that will give a home some pop and pizzazz without being off-putting to buyers. Here are some of the best new neutral paint colors of 2018:

From dark charcoal and steel gray shades to softly muted grays suitable for bedrooms and bathrooms gray is a great choice when homeowners are looking for colors that add personality and color without looking too personalized. Gray is becoming especially popular as a bedroom color choice when paired with pastel accent colors and neutral window treatments and bedding. Dark gray is the perfect way to accent a wall in the living room or turn a bonus room into a media room.


Sage green and olive green shades are also becoming very popular neutral paint colors. These colors pair exceptionally well with beige and tan so that homeowners who want to freshen the look of their home can do so without having to repaint everything in the home. Sage or olive green trim will set off a beige wall perfectly and still look classic and clean.
