When you paint your interiors with good quality paint, the effect will last a long time; experts say 7 to 10 years. But, this is not to mean you should wait for it to wear out to repaint your home.
If you want to keep your home in perfect shape, repainting it more often works magic. This means you pay attention; some interior areas may need repainting more often than other areas.
- High traffic areas such as bathrooms, hallways, kitchens, etc. get a lot of stains, scuff marks, dents, etc. The paint in these areas will fade faster than in the rest of the home. As a result, you may need to repaint as soon as the colors fade.
- Areas like the baseboard, ceiling and trim tend to be forgotten when planning for an interior improvement. The kitchen ceiling, for example, will have the same amount of grease splatters as the kitchen walls, but it may be forgotten when painting the kitchen. So, take a look at these forgotten areas to determine if they need repainting.
- Similarly, interior areas exposed to the outdoors may need repainting more often. More sun exposure means higher fading. And if you live close to the ocean, salt exposure to your interiors also increases fading. So, you may also need to repaint your walls due to the weather’s impact.
- And finally, needing a new look for specific areas of your home may also encourage frequent repainting. For example, a kid’s bedroom will need a new look every few years as the child grows. You may also be craving a new look for your home, which is a definite reason to repaint.
So, don’t be bound by the recommended period. If you feel your home could use some fresh paint, why not simply do it?
