Color Psychology In Your Rental Property

Color Psychology In Your Rental Property

Imagine walking into a showing at a rental property and all the walls have been painted firetruck red. Now imagine walking into a showing at a rental property and the walls have been painted a sandy tan. The sandy tan walls have an adjacent walnut brown accenting wall. Which home would you put in your application for?

Choosing colors for your Snellville rental property can be a make or break when potential tenants come to view your home. Different colors mean different things and can even make you feel different emotions. Prepare your home to create an appealing aesthetic by taking advantage of  the psychological effects of colors.

According to color psychology, when asking someone their favorite color you may be able to tell more about the person than you think. For example, blue can represent calmness and pink shows kindness. White can bring a sense of safety to the viewer; it can make an area feel cleaner and simpler.

So what is the best color to paint your rental property? According to the professionals light and neutral tones are the most secure way to go. That being said, it is not recommended to paint your entire house the same neutral tone. Some rooms offer the opportunity for subtle character. For instance, complimenting a fireplace with a warm brown can make your tenants feel attracted to the cozy atmosphere the room provides. If you do decide to use a color like the one given in the example its always best that the shade is muted. A color too bright could evoke a strong negative emotion to the rental property and is better to be avoided.
