Choose the right colour palette for rental properties

If you are a landlord or you have recently purchased a buy to let property, you will likely be eager to get a new tenant in as soon as possible. Along with ensuring a rental property is safe and habitable it is important for landlords to present a pleasing aesthetic. Naturally, you want to secure suitable and reliable tenants that will take care of your property and pay their rent on time. Every successful landlord knows that clean and well decorated houses have the best chance of securing trustworthy and low-maintenance tenants. When selecting paint colours for your investment property, you should focus on a colour or colours that are sure to appeal to the largest number of renters. Accent walls can be very appealing but it is wise to stay as neutral as possible.

Many people make the assumption that painting a property white from top to bottom is the best way to go. Whilst white can give a room a fresh and crisp feel, it can appear cold and sterile all the way through a house. Furthermore, many people do not want to undertake any serious decorating when they rent properties and an all white interior can scare these kinds of potential renters away.

Everyone that views your property wants to envision themselves living in your home. Your goal is to get your property rented as soon as possible as opposed to making a statement or giving it your personal touch. It will be somebody else’s home, and with the right colours you can offer your viewers the perfect blank canvas. Stick to warm and clean tones such as creams, beiges and silvers and blend them with a white shade.
