There are several reasons to start on your interior painting projects now. By updating your interior paint, you will enjoy fresh, clean walls. If the painting is done properly, it can make your interior look brand new, even if your home is old. During the process of applying new paint, the first step is to sand down and clean the walls. Then the base coat, or primer is applied. These two steps clean and refresh your walls in a way that nothing else can. You can completely transform the interior of your home by changing how it looks entirely. This is also a great way to personalize your living space so that it genuinely reflects who you are and your style.
A new paint job can also help protect your walls from regular wear and tear. Paint keeps out moisture and prevents the build up of mildew and mold. If you are worried about chemical sensitivities or allergies, try using a paint that is low or zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). This way, the paint will put off less gas and not disrupt your life in the way that a regular paint might.
To create more space in your home, use light-colored paint, especially in smaller areas. For a cozier feel, use darker paints. The change can be dramatic and aesthetically pleasing, attracting more buyers if you are planning to put your home on the market. Because painting your walls is pretty inexpensive compared to other home improvement projects, applying new interior paint is one of the best ways to increase the value of your home. It’s a great way to get a return on a small investment that makes a big difference.
Now is the time to start your interior painting projects because you want to maintain general upkeep to make sure that your home always looks great. Or, you may want to change the colors of a room, which is the number one reason why people repaint their interiors. An interior paint job does not have to be done as often as an exterior, but it is a good idea to keep up on it. Some walls need more frequent painting than others. If you have kids, you will notice the area near the baseboards, the corners, and around door handles are particularly prone to grime as well as weather and tear. You should paint bedroom and hallway walls every couple of years. Messy fingers and moisture in the bathroom and kitchen mean that your walls need a good painting every three to four years. Living rooms and dining rooms can usually wait for around six years or so.
A clean, fresh look and a brand new feel to your home work wonders for your sanity and potential real estate ventures. Complete your interior painting jobs now to personalize your space, freshen up your walls, increase home value and attract buyers, and to make sure your house always looks nice.
