Interior design colour scheme for selling and living

Interior design colour scheme for selling and living 

A colour scheme is very important, however there are two thoughts when adding colour to your indoor walls and they are:

Are you about to sell your home or are you going to stay for a while?

These two questions are very important in deciding what colours to paint your walls, inside your home.

Colour choice when selling your home

For example, beige, cream, white walls are always a go-to colour when selling, this is because the light colour makes a room look larger and adds more light to the space. Some real estates beg to differ and will tell you not to waste your money on painting a new colour, because the new owners might want to paint over it anyway. As much as this is the case, if the bright, bold and mix-matching of colours are a bit of an eye-sore, there will be less people wanting to buy your property (because it's harder for them to imagine what it would look like with a new batch of paint) and potential buyers could drop the price by a minimum of $5,000 to pay for "professional painters". So ensuring the right colours are used when selling a property is good to be aware of it.

Wall colours to live in

In saying that painting your walls your own colours if you have just bought a property or are wanting to live in your property for a couple more years is a good idea. Painting your walls changes your home to suit your personality, style and taste. Plus, it adds to the layer of colour that you might want to highlight through other textures of furniture or decorations.

If you're a bit on the creative side, go a bit wild and paint a wall mural or add some funky wall paper, try something different, if it doesn't work, paint over it. (Except don't paint over the wall paper if it goes bad, just call in a professional).
