The days of prospective tenants viewing properties with magnolia painted walls and a flimsy flat pack wardrobe are long gone. Due to the rise of social media interior inspiration is everywhere and your property needs to stand out from the competition. Style doesn’t have to be about designer items it just has to be welcoming, inspirational and practical.

Interior design doesn’t need to be expensive. When considering your project think about adding colours that make the room stand out. If you’re not confident with colour or the room doesn’t have enough natural light then stick to a neutral palette and introduce colour by way of accessories and textiles. By using a simple colour palette, you can link this throughout the property using various shades and textures.

Choosing your colour

Colour is renowned to affect your emotions so consider this and how you want your guests or tenants to feel.

Orange gives the sensation of heat and warmth which encourages wellbeing. 

Green natures colour gives a feeling of restfulness and tranquility.

Yellow like a ray of sunshine linked to joy and happiness. 

Blue can give you a feeling of serenity and contentment
