Best Hammersmith Home Colour

Published: 30/06/2017

When it comes to selling your Hammersmith home the first impression your property makes, could be a sale or no sale. Ahead of selling, be very careful when choosing a colour to paint your home in London W6. 

Look at the other neighbouring Hammersmith properties where you live. If the houses or blocks of flats along the street have a particular look and feel it would be advisable to stick within the local colours.  Don’t stand out for the wrong reasons, if you paint your house pink in a row of pale green houses it could put people off.

Can the colour somehow reflect the landscape? If you are lucky enough to live along the Southern border of Hammersmith by the river Thames facing the water, your property may well work in a pale blue, reflecting the location while suggesting a calm, serene lifestyle. Another factor to consider could be the season; if you are painting specifically to sell your home you can afford to choose a colour which compliments the season, think sunny tones for sunny months!

Generally, the advice is to select neutral and traditional colours in order to attract the most people.

White is always an attractive choice; a crisp white house will look clean and fresh. White will also give your home a palatial feel and will bring a lifting light to your front garden or kerb. On the flip side, it can look a little stark and clinical, so if you are set on white think about what else surrounds your home; do your garden borders soften the outlook? You could also temper a brilliant white a little with a complimentary palette for the window and door frames. This will work to accentuate the features and design of your property when done well.

Whether it’s called putty, taupe, stone or cream, there is no need to fear beige. It is a soft, neutral colour which enables house hunters to see it as a blank canvas they can apply their own style and personality to. It is friendlier than white, but offers a neutral appealing finish. Grey tones are currently very popular, although pick a colour which isn’t too dramatic.

Yellow often equals happy. Unsurprisingly, a sunny outlook gives an impression of happiness and warmth – perfect for a family. As with all colours, the shade is quite important; choose a pastel yellow as opposed to a shade closer to neon!

Green can be a little tricky – there are numerous shades to choose from. Picking a pale, apple green can give your home a cheery, yet calm disposition. A deeper, rich green can look very regal and elegant in the right setting, but remember it may not be loved by everyone!

Overall, lighter colours tend to be more attractive to people. However, if you are craving some drama, why not give your front door an injection of colour? For example, a pale facade with a deep, slate grey door could give a stately effect to your home.
Stick with something fairly neutral or at least in keeping with your neighbourhood, light and inviting to help you successfully sell your home.
