He painted his house completely black inside and out, now nobody wants to buy it

Color is one of the main factors that can encourage or hinder the sale of a property. Light tones tend to appeal to potential buyers because of the light they bring to environments and the possibility of imagining what another color would look like in the future, as if it were a blank canvas. The dark ones, on the other hand, evoke a feeling of confinement and claustrophobia, which is why they are usually great detractors of possible sales, although now the gray palette for properties is in fashion.

But a house in Illinois (United States) that has two floors with a large living room, two bedrooms and that is available on the real estate portal Zillow for $250,000, chose the darkest color possible and despite being offered at a competitive price , the looks of those who pass by his forehead are far from being attractive. His all black facade scares away a lot of passers-by and captivates a few curious onlookers.

The living room also has black walls, although there are stone details in slightly lighter shades, and the leather table and chairs are dark brown.

Although the original idea was to paint only the roof black, the owner was encouraged to take a greater risk and paint it entirely in this color.

One of the bedrooms follows this line and has walls, floors and furniture in this color. Some exceptions stand out, such as the light-colored bedding, the window frames and two individual armchairs located on one side of the room. The bathroom, on the other hand, is one of the few spaces in the house where there is a strong presence of white, given that the tiles, bathtub and furniture are in that hue.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom house is recognized as being in the style “Gothic” and the roof is built in a cathedral style that in turn has three skylights. Although his viralization on social networks popularized his presence on the real estate portal, the owner clarified that he has not yet received any specific offer. There must be a reason…
