It’s often the project we avoid because we know that repainting is likely to be costly and definitely time-consuming for homeowners. If you were to ask around a room, there would be many hands for those who avoid those necessary paint jobs, generally claiming due to lack of time.
It’s not unusual for people to repaint their property, inside or out, when they are looking to sell their home, can no longer stand the shabby looking ceiling and walls, or the paint colours are becoming too overwhelming and need changing. Suppose that is the point you’re at and are considering changing your interior painting regime. In that case, we have some reasons why it is necessary to keep on top of it and how this can be achieved without significant upheaval.
Have you ever heard anyone say that all the painting in your home needed to be completed at one time? We certainly haven’t, but we get why people wish to do it that way. We get it; sometimes, there is a sense of urgency or necessity to get the job done, the whole house at a time. However, you can do this job on a smaller scale to still make a difference to your home. Plan on doing one or two rooms at a time for aesthetic purposes. This can improve your interiors’ functionality, help with rezoning different areas of your home, and be inspired by decor and design. Whether you do a minor or significantly large painting job in the rooms of your house, the effect will have your home interiors looking fantastic and will renew the love you once had for your home.
Whatever size paint job you do, whether indoors or outdoors, the value of your house and property increases. Besides improving the exterior of your walls with pops of colour or neutral hues, it also fixes any issues you have with your surfaces as you prepare them for paint and refresh your living spaces’ aesthetics that will have the whole family appreciating the new look.
Functionality and Aesthetics
The colours on household walls can significantly affect your mood, especially when they become dull and uninspiring. Our tastes and styles change over time, and what we loved five years ago may not be what we love now. As your family grows, or perhaps everyone has left the nest, your living situations change over the years. This means you may be rezoning areas for a room’s renewed functionality such as a nursery, playroom, office space or sitting area; the possibilities are endless.
This doesn’t mean you need to do a complete renovation or move house to make your home more functional. One of the most accessible and most affordable options for an evolving home as people come and go is by adding a touch of paint to the walls. People underestimate how adding colour to walls can completely transform rooms in a house and be a totally different design from what you started with. Repurposing rooms with a bit of paint is easily one of the best solutions for remodelling a space without knocking down walls and starting from scratch.
Repainting for Colour, Cleanliness and Quality
Paint over time fades because of sun and general wear and tear, surfaces become dull and covered in marks and stains, and depending on how long ago your walls were last painted, the old paint may be peeling. Trying to rid the stains and marks with chemicals or other alternatives can leave your walls looking worse than when you started. Generally, this means the only alternative is to repaint the walls.
It’s possible that you still love the colours currently on your walls and really don’t want to change it, but you cannot stand the state of it anymore. The best solution in this situation is to repaint it still but in the same colour or a shade of the same colour. This way, all the marks and faded areas will be gone, and the refreshing look of the walls will be vibrant and, most notably, looking clean.
When doing a new job, professional painters can advise you on how stain-resistant paints are the perfect option for longevity and durability, which means more years between paint jobs. This is a win-win situation because you not only have new walls, but they will stay cleaner for longer.
