When it comes time to sell your home, you might consider making some changes to make it more appealing to buyers.

After analyzing more than 32,000 listing photos of homes that have sold across the US, Zillow came up with a list of colors that performed the best.

Painting walls in fresh, natural-looking colors, particularly in shades of blue and pale gray, not only make a home feel larger, but also are neutral enough to help future buyers envision themselves living in the space.

Kitchens:

Blue (light blue to soft gray-blue): home sold for $1,809 more on average

Yellow (straw yellow to marigold): home sold for $820 less on average

Bathrooms:

Blue/purple (light powder blue to periwinkle): home sold for $5,440 more on average

White/no color (off-white or eggshell white): home sold for $4,035 less on average

Bedrooms:

Blue (light cerulean to cadet blue): home sold for $1,856 more on average

Pink (light pink, to antique rose; often found in kids rooms): home sold for $208 less on average

Living Room:

Brown (light beige, pale taupe, oatmeal): home sold for $1,809 more on average

Blue (pastel gray, pale silver to light blue, periwinkle): home sold for $820 less on average

Home Exterior:

Gray/brown (greige — mix of gray and beige): home sold for $1,526 more on average

Brown (medium brown, taupe, or stucco): home sold for $1,970 less on average
