In the world of home staging, it’s the little details that make all the difference, and one of these essential details is color. Color isn’t just a matter of taste; it’s a powerful tool for influencing emotions and creating the ideal atmosphere in a property. In this blog post, we’ll dive into the world of color psychology and its role in effective home staging, providing you with insights to expedite the selling process.
Color has a remarkable influence on a room’s ambiance. Each color has its own unique personality, and they can evoke specific emotions. Soft blues and greens create a sense of calm and serenity, perfect for bedrooms and living spaces. In contrast, vibrant reds and yellows infuse energy and warmth, making them ideal for kitchens and dining areas. The key is to choose colors that resonate with your target audience to help them envision themselves living in the space.
Consider the intended purpose of each room when selecting colors.
Neutral tones like soft grays and warm beiges can create a comfortable and serene environment in bedrooms and living areas. Vibrant accent colors can stimulate appetite and conversation in dining and kitchen spaces. Harmonizing colors with architectural features and natural lighting enhances the overall atmosphere and functionality.
Color choices are more than just paint on the walls; they’re a language that can help potential buyers visualize their future in the space. So, the next time you’re staging a property, remember the profound impact of color choices, as they can be the key to a quicker sale and a higher offer.

According to Better Homes and Gardens there are 5 trends for first time and repeat buyers. Learning about these trends can help with buying and selling your home. Let’s take a look…
Millennials are looking for their dream home. This means that they are looking to buy a home that they can stay in for more than 10 years. So much for that starter home…they are looking for more square footage, upgrades and good school districts.
The home buying process can take longer than it used to. First time home buyers average about 5 months whereas repeat buyers are averaging 4 months from start to close. There are two possible reasons for this that can include the multitude of online search sites as well as the loan process. Searching these home sites can make the house hunting process sometimes take longer since there are so many options. Also, it is advised to get pre-approved prior starting the the search to help with shortening the loan process. Some home buyers are selling their home first and then renting so that they can snatch up the home they want when it is listed.
Buyers want a move-in ready home. Fixer-uppers are not as desired as they used to be. Purchasing a newly built home or one with no renovations seems to be more appealing. It comes down to time and money for home buyers. Cosmetic upgrades are obviously not as deterring as structural changes or replacing AC units. Not knowing the resale value to certain renovations can also be a factor.
Kitchens still sell houses! If you are going to upgrade, the kitchen is the place to do it. An updated kitchen can certainly influence a buyer to purchase a home. Open floor plans, islands with seating, and double ovens are also on the desired list. Most buyers desire an updated kitchen over a theatre room or even having a pool.
Millenials want a good investment. Repeat buyers focus on size and style when purchasing whereas millennials are looking for a step towards financial stability. They are looking for growing areas and not purchasing the most expensive homes in that area. Thinking like a seller can help with making that good investment.
