Your paint color choice has the power to put the finishing touches on an interior design. Owners that are preparing to put their homes on the market should consider the impact that color has on potential buyers when they walk into a room. It can directly influence the atmosphere inside the home and make it feel warm and inviting. Follow this guide for how color can benefit your home staging process!
Create a Plan
Every great execution came from a carefully thought out plan. Before you stage your home, you should work with your interior designer to create a plan that gets it ready for sale by creating a great color palette. This palette will be home base for the rest of your design choices as your reference point. It will help not only with paint choices but furniture as well.
Tell a Story
Use color to tell a story with your staging. Help buyers see themselves in your home on a daily basis and going about their normal activities. The story should be welcoming and comfortable. For the style choices, consider the demographics in your area and home buying trends to get an idea of what type of buyers would be looking at your home. This will help you make some decisions about whether you should stick with a conservative palette or if it would be worth it to take a risk.
Avoid the Clutter
As important as color choice is in your interior design, there is a such no thing as too much color. This idea includes more than just your paint color, but your furniture choices as well. Help potential buyers focus on your home and not the quirky, bright elements that you’ve found to fill the rooms. Organization goes a long way and simplicity helps buyers picture adding their own style to the space, with their own furniture pieces. Be careful not to draw too much attention away from the details of the space to your design choices; they should serve as a base.
