What Can a Neutral Colour Palette Do For You?

Stagers often go for a neutral colour palette when working with a home that may be otherwise hard to sell based on the preexisting colours in a house. For example, it’s easier to market a house with a white kitchen as opposed to a green one. Neutrals include beige, white, black, grey and navy blue and have the benefit of coordinating well with each other to form a cohesive colour scheme.

While neutrals may not be “fun” to everybody, they often make a house feel more mature and make it easy to match furniture and decorations. An occasional pop of colour is an unexpected twist and doesn’t look out of place among neutrals, so don’t think you’re limited to just grey!
