Warm and inviting, while remaining subtle enough to blend with anything. 2. New Blue. Timeless, yet contemporary. Think a cool, grey-blue. 3. Lilac Grey.

THE4BEST-KEPTSECRETSFORSELLINGYOURHOME When it comes to selling a home, we’ve all heard we need to declutter, remove personal items and paint over bold walls with a more neutral colour. But there are a few more less-known tips that can help get your property off the market fast. Maximize the light. Of course, we hear that opening the curtains for a showing is a must. But have you ever been advised to take them down all together? Or, if you still want the look of fabric framing the window, consider installing flowing white curtains. To let in even more light, make sure your windows are squeaky clean and trim down any trees or bushes that might be blocking the sun from pouring in. Hide your pet paraphernalia. If you’re a pet person, it’s hard to imagine someone would find your fur babies anything other than adorable. But people who don’t like pets – or are allergic to them – won’t appreciate your basket of fuzzy toys or your matching stainless steel food and water bowls. Stash these items away whenever you have a showing. After all, your pets aren’t going to stay with the house! Sell your kitchen. It’s the area buyers are going to pay the most attention to. If they see outdated countertops, or if your dark cabinets make the room seem small and depressing, they’re not going to be as interested in the rest of the house. A largely unknown tip is to buy one higher-end appliance. It will make buyers think the other appliances are fancy too. Always be ready. This tip is probably the most difficult to follow, especially if you have a big family or a very busy life. But your home needs to always be in a ready- to-show state. That means no dishes in the sink and no dust bunnies in the corner. It may be inconvenient, but being ready is what is going to get your home sold.
