What Colors Are Best For Selling Your Home

Emerald may be this year’s color of the year and hot hue, but which colors should you avoid?

Color research tells us some colors to avoid. Colors that can be considered, as some researchers note, “eye irritants” and can even cause headaches or mess with your vision.

According to color research, the worst offending color:

Yellow as a “pure bright lemon.”

“More light is reflected by bright colors, resulting in excessive stimulation of the eyes,” researchers note. “Yellow is an eye irritant. Babies cry more in yellow rooms, husbands and wives fight more in yellow kitchens, and opera singers throw more tantrums in yellow dressing rooms.”

That said, yellow is the first color the human eye tends to notice so in small doses it may be effective. It can help you draw attention to an item when used as an accent color. Also, using yellow in softer tints or in small quantities may not be such a turn-off.

A recent article at Homesessive.com (“Paint Color Trends to Avoid”) pinpointed trendy color combos that may have once been a turn-on that are now becoming a turn-off in home interiors. San Francisco color expert Kelly Berg recently weighed in at Homesessive.com about some trendy color combinations to avoid, such as:

  • “Greige”: The gray and beige combo in a space to create a monochromatic effect. Instead, Berg recommends pulling in some accent colors, likegrassy greens, to make the space more warm and inviting. She also recommends mixing in reflective surfaces, such as glass and metal, to lighten up the room since gray tends to absorb more light than other hues.
  • Chocolate brown and blue: This trendy color combo of a chocolate brown and Tiffany’s blue may be growing tiresome in home interiors. Berg recommends freshening up the look by adding a third color to the mix, such as hot pink, coral, or metallics in silver or gold.
  • Red, Gold and Green: This go-to rustic color pattern also may be beginning to grow stale in interiors. Berg recommends avoiding using all three colors in equal portions when you have a tri-color scheme in a home. She also recommends keeping the saturation levels of the color similar, but not exactly the same to liven up the look.
  • The all white kitchen: A kitchen all in white can look fresh and clean, but the look may be getting overdone and growing dull. Liven it up by pulling in some color from an adjacent space or pull a color from the dishes, Berg says. For example, if the home owner has blue dishes, you might try using deep indigo as an accent color.

翡翠可能是今年的一年,熱色調的顏色,但你應該避免哪些顏色?

色彩的研究告訴我們,以避免一些顏色。顏色是可以考慮的,一些研究人員指出,“眼睛刺激”,甚至可以引起頭痛,你的視覺混亂。

根據對顏色的研究,最嚴重的犯罪顏色:

黃如一個“純淨明亮的檸檬。”

“更多的光被反射明亮的色彩,造成對眼睛的刺激過度,”研究人員注意。 “黃眼睛有刺激性。嬰兒哭得更在黃色的房間,丈夫和妻子打在黃色的廚房,和歌劇演唱家扔更多黃色的更衣室發脾氣。“

在於:所述第一顏色,黃色是人眼傾向於要注意,所以在小劑量,它可能是有效的。它可以幫助你時,提請注意的項目作為強調色。此外,使用更柔和的色彩或小批量的黃色,可能不會出現這樣的關斷。

最近的一篇文章在Homesessive.com(“塗料色彩趨勢,以避免”)找准了時尚的顏色組合,可能曾經被轉一轉,現在已經成為一個在家庭內部的關斷。舊金山色彩專家凱利伯格最近體重在Homesessive.com一些時髦的顏色組合來避免,如:

    
*“坯布”:的灰色和米色的組合在一個空間來創建一個單色效果。相反,伯格建議在一些口音的色彩,likegrassy的綠色,使空間更溫馨,並邀請拉。她還建議在反射表面,如玻璃,金屬,減倉灰色往往會吸收更多的光線比其他色調的房間,因為混合。
    
*巧克力棕色和藍色:這家時髦的巧克力棕色和Tiffany的藍色可能會越來越無聊的在家庭內部的顏色組合。伯格建議清新的外觀增加了第三個顏色的組合,如珊瑚,粉紅色,銀色或金色或金屬色。
    
*紅色,金色和綠色:此去,以質樸的色彩圖案也可在室內開始變得陳舊。伯格建議避免使用所有三種顏色相同的比例,當你在家裡有一個三色方案。她還建議保持飽和的顏色類似,但不完全一樣熱鬧起來的樣子。
    
*所有的白色廚房:廚房可以看看新鮮,乾淨的白色,但外觀可能會變得過分的和不斷增長的沉悶。拉一些顏色從相鄰的空間變得活潑,或拉顏色的菜餚,Berg說。例如,如果房主有藍色的菜餚,你可以嘗試使用深靛藍作為強調色。
