You have decided that it’s finally time to sell your home and now comes the hard part: preparing your home to look its best for prospective buyers.
What is Home Staging?
Most homeowners have heard of staging a home. However, what does staging really mean? Home staging is a growing trend among homeowners that can involve one or more of the following:
- De-cluttering of personal items
- Rearranging furniture
- Adding high-quality furniture
- Applying a fresh coat of paint in each room
One of the most important home improvement jobs you should consider to prepare your home for sale involves applying a fresh coat of paint in every room. Many real estate professionals encourage clients to use neutral colors balanced with different shades of white.
However, if you want your home to stand out in the market, we recommend using more robust colors that enhance the appearance of your home.
Mood plays a significant role in determining the decisions of home buyers, and no other color elevates mood more than sunny yellow. Think about how you feel whenever the sun breaks through the clouds for the first time on a gloomy day. Use a yellow that has a slightly creamy look on cabinets and on the trim of your living room. Yellow also brightens a room, especially a room that does not have a window facing the sun during most of the day.
The perception is among some interior designers that using a darker color to paint a room creates smaller space. Yet, choosing the right kind of dark-colored paint offers you a neutral way to highlight stylish design elements, such as a stained cedar oak dresser in a bedroom and a dark blue silk-lined couch in the living room. Charcoal represents a chic paint color that produces more depth on a wall, as well as complements lighter colored furniture and accessories.
Light Blue is the Perfect Hue
Also referred to as bird’s egg blue, light blue is a luxuriously elegant paint option for bedrooms and bathrooms. Light blue produces a calming effect, and it works stylishly well with both classic and contemporary interior home decors. The calming influence bird’s egg blue has is especially important, as it triggers positive emotions in potential buyers. Large bedrooms designed with textiles shaded white are ideal areas of the home to apply light blue paint for staging.
Other paint colors that make beautiful additions to staging your home include rich gray and navy blue. Turn uninviting white painted rooms into stylish rooms prospective buyers will remember by applying visually appealing paint colors in every room of your home.
