Painting: “dull and unattractive” colors to avoid when decorating – “devalue your space”
Interior design is just one way for homeowners to add their own character to a home. Designing and decorating a home can be difficult, especially if you are looking to sell in the future. According to an expert, there are certain colors to avoid when looking to paint, including bright colors and dark shades.
Ryan McDonough, interior design expert at MyJobQuote, told Express.co.uk: “Selling your house is a big job.
“It can get even more confusing when it comes to thinking about what décor might devalue your space.
“It’s important to look at the long term, not just read all the latest color and decorating trends.
“It is essential that you stick to the basics when decorating to sell, otherwise you could lengthen the already lengthy process of getting your home off the market even further.

“If you’re set on going for a signature black focal point, make sure it’s pure black and not off-black or gray, as they can look dull and unattractive.
“Muddy, dark brown hues can also be a huge annoyance, creating a dark, dull feel.”
Bright yellows and neon colors are also to be avoided.
According to the expert, they may seem tacky around the house.
Bright colors can also be very difficult to work with and can put off potential buyers.
Ryan continued, “If you’re looking to brighten up your space, stick to neutral tones like whites, off-whites, and beige.
“They are simple, easy to change and can create an endless amount of styles with just a change of furniture or decor.”
Spectacular walls can also put off buyers, as they depend on personal taste.
Bathrooms and kitchens are often considered the most important rooms in the house, so homeowners should carefully think about decorating them before other rooms in the house.
