A color expert can come to the rescue! Often in apartment communities, interior spaces are left in dark shadow with poor lighting and dark siding colors wrapped into them. Not only does this make for a fairly depressing experience every time a resident comes home but these halls can be just plain scary to some having to come and go at night. It can be particularly worrisome for women living in and using these uncomfortable spaces. We recommend painting the interior walls in a light color and the ceilings in an off-white—and up the wattage of your bulbs. This is not the place to save money. Eliminating this problem can directly translate into better showings for potential customers but just as importantly can increase retention because your tenants find coming home much more pleasant.
