Keep the colour neutral….
If you do decide some rooms need to be painted then this isn’t the time to experiment. Stay neutral with a palette of creams and off whites! Good old magnolia is as cheap as it gets and yet creates a great feeling of space. Neutral colours help to brighten a home and give it a fresh look. They’re also really passive and so allow the buyer to imagine your home in their chosen palette.
Dark colours always demand a response and potential buyers will either love them or hate them, so why take the risk?
While it might make sense for you to push over the bed in the spare room and use the space as your office, to a potential buyer it looks like the room has a split personality. Make it easy for the buyer and give each room its own identity. Take the exercise bike out of the dining room and put the kids toys into their bedrooms or playroom. If you can’t move the office then swap the bed for a sofa bed. It’ll make the room feel like a study but still creates an option for guests.
Remember! Every room should have a reason, not two or three……
