NH Home Staging FAQ - Can You Help Me Choose Paint Colors?
Probably the most frequently asked question I get, as a New Hampshire Home Stager, has to do with paint color selection.
Most Home Staging consults result in a room or more needing paint....usually involving the choice of a new color.
Yes, I can help you choose the colors. Color selection is a crucial part of any Home Stager's services.
When preparing your house for sale it's best to use neutral colors to appeal to the broadest range of buyers. It's the interpretation of "neutral" that confuses most sellers. Builders beige or white are what come to mind, but that's not what home stagers recommend.
Neutral doesn't mean cold and sterile. You want colors that are warm and inviting. You want colors that compliment your furnishings and floors. Don't paint every room a different color. Sticking to just two or three colors (plus trim color) throughout the house, creates a smooth flow from room to room.
Paint color can make or break a room. It can compensate for negative features and it can enhance the positive. Professional advice on the choice of color can save you time and money.
Home Selling Tip: Meet with a stager PRIOR to meeting with your painter. I've had clients tell me "we just had it painted" when I recommend they change a room color. OOPS!
