Color Psychology: Making Your Copper River Rental Property More Inviting

Choosing colors for your Copper River rental property can be a deal-breaker when the time comes to rent it out. Different colors hold different types of associations, and there may be some doubts when it comes to some colors as there are colors that are eye-catching to certain prospective tenants than others. To create an appealing aesthetic that appeals to the majority, it is pivotal to follow and wield the underlying psychology of color to your advantage.

According to color psychology, every tint and shade has a significant impact on your mind (and emotions). Different colors carry different associations and you can even calculate someone’s personality just by knowing their favorite color(s). For example, blue is often associated with feelings of calm and peacefulness, then red often signifies energy or sometimes danger. White, the most customary color determined for interior walls, is oftentimes associated with light, cleanliness, and even safety, while shades in the tan and brown family connote reliability and stability.

This is why industry experts often recommend using light, neutral tones for the interior of a rental property. Walls painted in beiges and light grays are very inviting alternatives to white and oftentimes match even better with personal belongings and décor. But in spite of that, it is not usually required to always go with one color only throughout the house. Some rooms may offer themselves to an appealing use of different shades of blue, green, yellow, or red.

Adding a blue or green accent wall to a living room could add a nice color that is still relaxing, and not backbreaking to replace in case your tenants don’t like its appearance. In the kitchen, warm colors are generally considered more appealing, with yellows and reds being the usual favorite. Avoid intense or bright shades of these colors, in spite of that, which can be interpreted as aggressive.

In terms of bathrooms and bedrooms, common advice is to keep things neutral and add color through accessories. Colors in light or muted shades work best, but it’s not always required that you stick with beige. Gray, blue, and purple will also have an appeal when applied to the bedroom or a bathroom, dependent on the intensity of the shade. For instance, a bedroom with gray walls may be fittingly complemented by an interconnecting bathroom in purple, providing both rooms a luxurious and even romantic feel.

Of course, the usual clean, white walls are a common preference. Some tenants prefer the “blank canvas” feeling of white, the best versatile color by far. If you decide to paint walls or rooms any other color, it may also result in forcing tenants, with strong feelings as far as their wall color, away. In any case, a soft neutral-colored wall with contrasting trim in white can provide your Copper River rental property an upgraded feel for a relatively low price. These color combinations are equally stunning and generally irresistible, a flawless arrangement between using color and helping your tenants more efficiently make the house seem like a home.
