Applying a fresh coat of paint to your home interior is a simple home improvement project that can be totally transformative. A new paint job in any room has the potential to create the impact of a significant home remodel with a fraction of the cost and time. The question is knowing when is a good time to get this project underway. Indeed, homeowners can choose to start this home improvement project at any time. However, if you’re hesitating on making the call to repaint your home interior, try paying attention to these few signs that are telling you it’s the smart move.
Need a Change or Update
Lately, have you felt like your home interior is a little drab? Perhaps the current wall paint is out-of-date or making your home feel uninspiring. We have been spending a lot of this year indoors and at home, staring at the walls day after day. It’s time you made a change to the color of your walls. You can take a cue from popular home design trends today by selecting a rich tone or bold shade. Or, you can take the ever-popular route of repainting the walls with a light neutral color. With this method, you can drastically modernize the feel of your home interior.
Paint is Faded or Cracked
It’s only a matter of time in older homes until you discover the effects of aging on your existing wall paint. Time will fade, crack, or otherwise dull your painted walls. Not to mention, you may also notice an accumulation of dirt and grime film on the walls. While old painted walls may be interesting to look at, it certainly lends a dated look in any home. Further, older homes that may not have been repainted or remodeled since the mid-1970s should especially be wary of cracked or deteriorating paint. This is because there could be traces of toxic lead in very old paints once used in homes.
Damage to Your Walls
Walls don’t necessarily have to be very old to look like they’ve seen better days. The walls in high-traffic areas in our homes tend to get scuffed and marked up. Homes with young children and pets are even more likely to see dirtied or damaged wall paint. Also, the unexpected water damage may cause you to notice watermarks on your walls or ceiling. If you’re taking the opportunity to fix up the walls for any reason, you may as well take the chance to repaint with a new shade rather than trying to patch up the imperfections. Use high-quality paint and other protective layers to preserve your new paint job this time around.
