Home staging in Vaughan and Toronto one of the first things we look at when we arrive at property for a staging consultation is to decide whether the house needs a change in paint colour.
With over 90 % of people finding their next home online it makes sense to paint the property a staging safe neutral colour to attract the widest range of buyers to put the the listing on their must see list.
You have probably noticed that when you are looking at online listing photos that you typically make some remark if the paint colours are loud, vibrant or totally outdated. The other important reason to paint a light neutral colour is the fact that dark colours do not reflect light well for photos. We want the properties to show bright and spacious to attract buyers.
Here are a few before and after pictures of one property that we knew needed a change of paint colour as it had not sold in 5 months.
The one colour we use most often right now for walls is Collingwood by Benjamin Moore. We even paint the cabinets when they have an outdated finish that builders are not even offering any longer.
The kitchen cabinets in this property were painted White Dove by Benjamin Moore as the pink oak cabinets and pink walls were preventing the sale of the property for over 5 months. The home owner was not interested in replacing the kitchen so we did the most economical thing we could do to show buyers how the house would look if they wanted to buy the house and update the kitchen.
The walls were painted Collingwood by Benjamin Moore.
This home sold in 5 days after painting and staging.
