With the holiday season right around the corner, it’s important to get your home in order before guests arrive. The best and easiest way to update the look inside your home is with a fresh coat of paint. Give your loved ones a nice fresh environment while they’re gathered for the Thanksgiving meal. A new paint color in the entryway, kitchen, or dining room will add to the conversation.
Benefits of Painting the Interior of Your Home
Never underestimate the transformative power of a new coat of paint. Just a day or two’s worth of work can revitalize a room and remove years’ worth of buildup and staining at the same time.
An interior painting project is so important, especially for hosting guests during the holidays. Here are some advantages you can achieve with just a couple coats of paint.
1. Cleans and Refreshes Your Walls
When you repaint your walls, the first step is to prepare the surface by cleaning and sanding them. During this process, your walls become cleaner than they’ve been in a long time. When preparing for guests, you usually clean your carpets, linens, and furniture. Why not tackle the walls and ceilings? A new coat of paint will take care of that for you.
2. Protects Your Interior Walls
Interior paint serves a similar purpose as exterior paint. Materials like drywall and plaster can tend to absorb moisture over time, gradually degrading their structural integrity and adding weight to your walls and ceiling. Paint seals out moisture, protecting these surfaces from being saturated or being eventually contaminated with pathogens like mold or mildew.
Paint can also repel dust, dirt, and allergens from the walls, so these can be swept off the floor more easily. This keeps your home fresh and ready for your next gathering.
3. Looks Aesthetically Pleasing
Most people love the dramatic change that comes with painting the interior of their home. If you live in a smaller space, painting the walls a bright color can help open up that space. Light paint colors create a more spacious look, while dark colors make rooms feel cozier.
Be mindful of the paint colors you use. Use a bright color on an accent wall to add a pop of color without making your room feel cramped. Psychological studies have shown that color affects mood. Pastels can be calming whereas bold primaries or secondaries can be energizing. Repainting a room can alter the way it makes you feel when you enter it.
Whether you’re painting the kitchen, master bedroom, guest room, or dining area, new paint will make your space look and feel better.
4. Increase the Value of Your Home
If you’re thinking about reselling your home in the near future, one of the best ways to improve the value of your home while saving money is to repaint your walls. Most real estate professionals will recommend that you at least consider repainting to increase the value and appeal of your property without requiring a huge investment.
It’s an affordable way to remodel, and it makes your home look attractive to potential buyers. If you want to make a small change in your home before putting it on the market, painting is a great way to get a big return on your investment.
5. Personalize Your Space
When you purchase a home, it has already been painted according to somebody else’s sense of style. The colors on the walls may not perfectly suit your sense of style or coordinate with your decor.
There may be outdated or unattractive wallpaper on the walls that just needs to go. You can personalize your home to suit your tastes with a new coat of paint. Whether you opt to paint your walls with neutral tones or cover your home in bright colors, you don’t have to settle for someone else’s style.
