Is your Home “Stager Friendly” or “Just Blended and Boring”?

I had a client today in Wesley Chapel, NC that wanted a new color scheme for her home which is great. However she is thinking about moving in about three years so that’s a completely differently way of thinking to design colors for the home.flowers_yellow

If you’re in your home and plan on staying there for years to come you can paint flowers on the walls if that’s what you like. If you plan on moving soon than you better start thinking about what color palette your potentially new home owner may like. You may like sage green but will someone else? You can choose color if you plan on selling and it doesn’t have to be beige.

“Oh I’ll just paint it all beige like one of those Sherwin Williams colors that all the model homes are painted.”

Don’t do that! Is it safe to paint your home beige? Yes. Is it boring? Yes. Does it make your home present itself as sellable? No. Will it look like everyone else’s house? Yes. Is this good? No. What should you do?

Hire a professional. There is a specific palette that you have to choose for you home if you’re going to sell in a few years. It still has to be colors that you’ll still like (sorry no purples or super crazy colors) while you’re living there and colors that you THINK new homeowners would love too. This is no easy feat  – unless you’re trained to design this way and I am!

  1. Great points! Although, sometimes the planets align and your taste is also someone else’s taste. Not likely, but possible. In most cases, Super Donna to the rescue!

    Hi. I’m enjoying your site. I agree that “too neutral” is a negative for staging, but would you agree that colors used need to be calm and compatible throughout the house?

  4. Donna Frasca says:

    Sure, especially if your home has an open floor plan but you have more freedom when it comes to color choices on the upper level of the home or bedrooms.

    Lately I’ve been working on ramblers. Thanks for reminding me that those multi-levels are double (or triple) design opp’s, and just that much more fun! Looking forward to your upcoming posts.
