Choosing colors for your Long Beach rental property can have a noticeable difference when the time comes to rent it out. Different colors hold different types of associations, and there is no doubt that some colors are substantially enticing to prospective tenants than others. To create an appealing aesthetic that appeals to the majority, it is decisive to comprehend and use the underlying psychology of color to your advantage.

According to color psychology, every tint and shade has a significant impact on your mind (and emotions). Different colors carry different associations and you can even gauge a person’s personality just by checking at their favorite color(s). One example is blue which is often associated with feelings of calm and peacefulness, whereas red often signifies energy or sometimes danger. White, the most conventional color being applied to interior walls, because it is associated with light, cleanliness, and even safety, while shades in the tan and brown family connote reliability and stability.

And this is why industry experts often recommend using light, neutral tones for the interior of a rental property. Walls painted in beiges and light grays are very inviting alternatives to white and are likely to partner better with personal belongings and décor. But nevertheless, you should not be pressured to just opt for one color only throughout the house. Certain rooms may be better with the use of different shades of blue, green, yellow, or red.

Adding a blue or green accent wall to a living room could give a pop of color that is also relaxing, and isn’t difficult to adjust if your tenants don’t like the result. In the kitchen, warm colors are generally considered more appealing, with yellows and reds are also known as most desired collections. Avoid intense or bright shades of these colors, which could be interpreted as aggressive.

As regards as to bathrooms and bedrooms, the predominant idea is to keep things neutral and add color through accessories. Colors in light or muted shades work best, but there is no motive to cling to beige. Gray, blue, and purple can match perfectly in a bedroom or a bathroom, determined by the intensity of the shade. Perhaps like a bedroom with gray walls may be wonderfully achieved by a connecting bathroom in purple, providing both accommodations a luxurious and even romantic feel.

There are still things to consider in having clean, white walls. Some tenants prefer the “blank canvas” feeling of white, the most versatile color by far. In painting walls or rooms any other color, you may also lose tenants with strong feelings when it comes to their wall color. Regardless, a soft neutral-colored wall with contrasting trim in white can provide your Long Beach rental property an upgraded feel for a relatively low price. Substantial color combinations are both alluring and collectively captivating, a likable agreement when using color and making your tenants more readily make the house seem like a home.
