Is it worth it to paint dark woodwork when selling?
I realize there are many other factors that are more important in selling my house but this is the one that has me waffling the most. Can you help me make up my mind?
My house was built in 1975 but have tried to update some and now has hardwood, tile downstairs and carpet upstairs. No laminate counters and new sinks, faucets and lights. I'll take down the wallpaper and borders and repaint. But I have lots of rooms and lots of doors, windows and trim, that, to me, all the dark woodwork makes look chopped up and cluttered. But to paint, arghhh, stair railing, 2 pocket doors and louvered pantry and closet doors besides all the regular doors, about 20 at quick count. Most of the rooms are fairly large and the good news is, these doors cover lots of storage. It'll still be a more chopped up 70s house, no open concept then...everything has a door! These are fairly nice quality doors, moldings and trim, look like pine to me and definitely stain grade.
Thanks for any and all advice......
