The Theory of Color and Mood

How Does Color Work_Have you ever walked into a room and felt a certain way, based on the color of the room? Remember Grandma’s house with the avocado green appliances and the harvest gold walls and carpet? Depending on the predominate culture and environment you grew up in, different colors effect people differently.

For example, in the above scenario, foods that are avocado or split pea soup green tend to make me turn away based on color alone. I just don’t find it appealing.

Why are soft blue bedrooms and red kitchens popular? Soft blue bedrooms tend to make us feel more relaxed and help us fall asleep easier. Red, especially in kitchens and food establishments, tend to make us feel hungry. Think of Red Robin, Kentucky Fried Chicken and In and Out Burger. Notice a theme in the color scheme?

When staging your home for sale, it is important to make your rooms appealing to the painting-black-paint-roller.jpgmass market, as well as befitting for the use of the room. Bright yellow bedrooms and blue kitchens don’t immediately come to mind as desirable. A home stager will use resources available to them to help you make your home present in the best possible light, to help you get the best possible price. When priced right for your market and staged properly, a house should not be on the market without an offer for more than 30 days at most.
