It’s very important that you choose the RIGHT colours when selling your home. Colours can dramatically affect moods, feelings and emotions. It is a powerful communication tool and can be used to signal action, influence mood, and cause physiological reactions.

We’re going to share with you two of the six colours that can attract homebuyers and their psychological effect.

Not-so-boring Neutrals

These colours are well-accepted by all age and income bracket. A soft beige is an easy sell – it adds warmth to the walls and gives buyers a chance to imagine the potential of the room. Beige is the least emotional colour, but when you mix it with other colours it will project a different effect. Below are good combinations for you to choose from:

  • with Black: sophisticated, elegant
  • with Blue: trustworthy, serene
  • with Green: compassionate, versatile

 

Shades of Grey

We suggest you choose warm or lighter shades of grey because it suggests a charming, cozy, comfortable environment free of the ups and downs of life. More mature buyers prefer this kind of colour due to its relaxing effect. You can combine grey with the following colours:

  • with Blue (not navy): believable, secure
  • with Brown: warm
  • with Purple: practical, creative, charming
