Looking for something to inspire or inform?



Preparing your house to put on the market can be a stressful experience. Most homeowners worry about making changes to their properties before putting them up for sale, which is understandable, but changes usually need to be made.

Here are a few ideas for colour schemes. This is important because the colour of your property is one of the first things that a potential buyer will notice about it.

White and Beige

The so-called ‘neutral’ colours are a safe bet, but you don’t have to limit your home’s colour pallet to these two colours, or their many, many shades. White can make a home look larger, it can soak up the light and it looks clean and fresh. Beige works well in shady, leafy grounds, but it can also be a boring colour, albeit a safe one.


Ever more popular in both modern and traditional style properties, grey is one of those colours that’s increasingly seen as a safe bet. It works well with white and other shades of grey, with the trick being to pair the right shade of grey with the overall feel of your home.

Light grey brings a coolness to a property whereas dark grey makes a modern property come across as trendier, especially when combined with chic furnishings.

Earthy Tones

Earthy tones like shades of brown, blue, green, orange and red are warm, inviting colours represented in nature, making them perfect for use in most homes. Using different shades of the one colour for interior or exterior trimming works wonders.

They also work well in homes with lots of glass, metal, stone or timber ornamentation and detailing, so they’re a popular choice for heritage and older properties.

Colours like these can help you sell your property, but that’s not all you’ll have to do!
