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.

Warm Brights

Yellow and orange are good examples of this type. Yellow is often described as cheery and warm but it is also the most fatiguing to the eye due to the high amount of light that is reflected. Orange, on the other hand, calls to mind feelings of excitement, enthusiasm, and warmth. It is often used to draw attention, such as in traffic signs and advertising. If you put these two colours together, it is considered to be an energetic colour. These colours can be used but only as highlights or accents to your home when you’re selling it or you can use them to paint the kids’ room or kitchen.

Earth Tones

Earthy, rich colours like brown and green are best avoided when you’re trying to sell. However, depending on the neighbourhood, lighter browns and greens could be appealing. Bringing the outside colours in your home creates a fresh look and feeling that could be attractive to homebuyers.Country homes do well with these rustic colours; just make sure you use them sparingly to avoid overwhelming potential buyers.
