Research – Font and Colour

Before deciding on a colour scheme we decided it was best to research into existing estate agent and room finding website. This would provide us an insight into the genre of the web application we will be making and the type of colours and fonts they use throughout their website.


As the target audience for many estate websites is mature adults and as the site is a serious topic the fonts on the page are very simple to read. The fonts on all sites I have visited use ‘sans’ fonts.



Blue is the most widely used colour among the websites not only in backgrounds but in font colouring, navigation bars, images and icons.

Commonly used colours:

  • Blue
  • Orange
  • Green
  • Purple
