Staging with the Color White

July 7, 2014

White is the number one color because of its fresh and clean appeal and because white (like neutrals) provides a calming effect. Using white as a background and with accents makes focal points stand out, so buyers can focus on the attributes of a home, not a homeowner’s personality and taste.

 

Ways to use white when staging your house:

 

  • Paint a wall or walls in a fresh coat of white to neutralize dark or brightly painted walls

  • White wash floors for a soft consistent look throughout the house

  • Frame a series of pictures in white and group together for an art gallery look

  • Use pillows that are white woven textiles to add texture and depth when accenting chairs and couches

  • Add white panels to appliances for a lighter and unified look in the kitchen

  • Change out darker kitchen cabinets with white ones for an updated look

  • Add plush white towels, white shower curtain, with white shower rod to give a spa feel

  • Cover the beds with luxurious bed covers in white, and enhance with white patterned pillows covers  

 

When using white, remember white on white patterns is very sophisticated, very shibui.

 

Implement the golden three: clean, depersonalize and de-clutter when preparing your home for sale.

 

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) tells us the average staging investment is between 1 and 3 percent of the home’s asking price and generates a return of 8 to 10 percent.
