'Puts people off!' Paint expert shares number one colour to avoid painting your walls

Date:


Choosing a colour to paint yours can be a tricky task; some opt for neutrals while others are brave enough to go bold. Express.co.uk spoke to Michael Rolland, interiors expert and Managing Director of The Paint Shed, an online and trade paint retailer, about the most appealing colours. He spoke about a recent study The Paint Shed had conducted which revealed the top 10 colours homeowners wouldn’t want to see inside a house.

Michael said: “When it comes to mass appeal, the bright and bold miss the mark. 

“It is important to remember that, when selling a property, viewers need to be able to imagine their own lives inside that house so they can envision it as their own home. 

“If a seller has put their personal preferences all over in the way of bright colours or wacky wallpaper, buyers will not only struggle to imagine their belongings and selves in the space. 

“They will also be considering the cost of redecoration, which after the other fees associated with buying a property is not going to persuade them to put in an offer,” he added. 

“We, The Paint Shed, recently conducted a study which asked UK residents which colours would put them off putting an offer in on a property.

“Fuschia, a bright pink, came out on top with nearly half of respondents choosing this shade out of the 60 they were presented with.”
