If you’re a homeowner in New Haven or any other area for that matter, you understand the importance of home maintenance. But chances are, you have a never-ending list of home maintenance projects to tackle, from roof cleaning and landscaping to fixing plumbing and mold invasion.
In the mix of all that, it’s easy to overlook some of the less obvious home improvement and maintain tasks like interior painting. If you’re reading this, chances you just realized your interior is starting to look a little dull and tired. A new fresh coat of paint is probably all you need, and below are some of the benefits you can expect.
There’re several tricks you can apply to your home’s interior to make it lively and interesting. Some of them include installing new window dressings, adding art and décor items, installing a new carpet, etc. However, none of these offer the transformation that comes with a new paint job.
A new interior paint job will mask the little stains, fingerprints and scuff marks, and will instantly add a new look to your space. You can even choose a different color to change the mood and feel of any room. If you’re considering selling your home anytime soon, a new paint job will create a remarkable first impression.
You probably faithfully dust, vacuum, and mop until your home sparkles, and that’s a good thing. However, if your home’s interior hasn’t been painted in a long time, endless scrubbing might not be an option. You will just be rubbing the color off the walls and leaving a bare spot. If you have kids and pets, you know that those little sticky fingers and dirty paws can quickly wreck your paint job.
A professional paint job is an excellent opportunity to eliminate any sources of mold and mask any stubborn stains for a clean new look. For high-traffic areas that are prone to stains and scuff marks, this is your chance to use semi-gloss paint, which is highly scrubbable and easy to maintain.
Protect Your Walls
Painting your home’s interior adds a layer of protection against several wear and tear elements. If your home tends to develop molds and mildew, a fresh coat of paint with fungicide additives can eliminate and prevent the fungi from recurring.
Moisture damage is another major challenge, especially on walls around the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room. New paint will seal off the moisture from seeping into your wall and causing all kinds of problems, including wood rot and water stains. Also, if you have plaster walls, paint forms a protective coating that can minimize dirt and dust coming from your walls.
Change The Look
If you’re looking for a dramatic visual change to a room in your home or make it more personal, a new paint job is the way to go. For instance, painting a small room in lighter colors can make the room appear larger and airier.
If you have a larger and open bedroom, you can make it more intimate and cozier by painting in darker paint colors. Dark colors often make the space to appear smaller than it is. You can also add a little drama and interest by painting an accent wall in a room or two.
The Bottom Line
Interior painting is the easiest and cheapest way to transform your home almost instantly. It can boost the aesthetic appeal, make your walls easy to clean and maintain and protect your walls against moisture damage and mold growth.
