The Importance of Neutral Furniture

Bright, popping colours might be on the trend radar this season but that doesn't mean you have to change up your entire home decor. The key to incorporating seasonal trends is to start with a good base that you can add to, as and when you and choose. This is where neutral furniture comes in! And we're not just talking about the colour scheme. Sticking to a neutral theme means clean lines and simplicity. No frills or embellishment! A neutral colour scheme in the home is perfect for a number of reasons.

Freedom to change

Firstly, as we mentioned, you will have a great foundation on which to build. If you fancy adding some bright colour to your interior, you'll be able to do this on top of a neutral base. Whether it's a tropical green or sultry jewel-toned pink, you can easily work brighter shades into your home. This is particularly useful for those who change their minds often about their interior style, and also those who aren't sure how to decorate when they first move into a new place.

New home neutrality

Speaking of moving into a new place, that brings us to our next point. Neutral colour schemes are obviously easy on the eye and that means they're a favourite for showhomes. Everyone can relate to these calming shades and easily envisage themselves living in the house. This is why it's important to consider buying neutral furniture if you're considering to sell your home in the future! Your rooms will look much more appealing on photographs and you'll appeal to potential buyers a lot more, too.

Landlords, listen up

If you're a landlord or considering renting out a property, you might want to pay attention. Rental properties with neutral furniture and decor are much more likely to attract tenants. Although renting is temporary accommodation, the majority of people still like to feel at home. And if you stick to a neutral colour scheme, it'll be much easier for your tenants to make the decision to rent out your property. This actually might be more important than in a housebuyer situation - if you're renting, you can't actually alter any hideous, out-dated decor!

Save money in the long run

On the whole, neutral furniture is cheaper than more extravagant, brighter coloured pieces. Stick to neutral and you're also less likely to replace furniture in the future as it is timeless and will always look good. You can easily change up your style with accents and accessories without breaking the bank, too! And as we mentioned earlier, neutral goes with anything. There's no point investing in large pieces of furniture in bold colours if you might have to or want to change them further down the line.
