February is upon us and the property market is thankfully picking up, queue sighs of relief from estate agents everywhere, so to make sure your home is one of the first of 2017 to get snapped up and you are one of the lucky movers, what colour should your home be? Yes you did read that right – what colour should your home be? When purchasing a home all factors pale in comparison to the ‘feeling’ a potential buyer first gets when they walk through the doors and there is no better way to create good feeling in a home then using the right colours.
Contrary to developers and landlords continued belief magnolia and cream are no longer the neutrals to use. Grey is still very much in favour with everyone and with so many tones available you will be able to find one that suits your home. Brown is ‘allegedly’ the big neutral of 2017, and is set to replace the oh so popular grey, because of the sense of warmth and comfort it produces. To give a sense of harmony through your home use the same neutral colour through out, remember though you are still able to choose different shades. Accent your rooms using varying colours on walls, wall art and accessories.
When adding colour remember you are selling your home, yes you have to live with it whilst you are selling so don’t choose a colour that you hate or doesn’t feel right but do choose colours that are light, modern and, of course, that will appeal to other people. Green is a versatile colour that promotes harmony and balance, so will automatically put a person at ease – perfect for selling your home. Pantone recently made ‘greenery’ its colour of the year so using this shade of green will show potential buyers you keep your home up to date. Pantone have also, thoughtfully, put up palettes on their website with ‘greenery’ and its various complimentary colours, use these palettes as a guide to help create a good sense of flow through your home.
Having rectified the interior please do not forget the exterior, you do have to get these potential buyers through the front door after all. White has always been a very popular house colour choice it is; crisp, clean, pure and protects against negative thoughts and feelings. So, like the greenery inside, it will make potential buyers feel at ease and positive about the house instantly.
