One of the best ways to give your home a refresh without spending a ton of money is with painting. You can instantly change the feel of a space when you paint it. Not only will the overall feel of your home change, but the value of your property will increase as well. Many homeowners may wonder how often they need to paint the inside of their home. This can depend on a number of different variables. L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc is here to talk about what has an impact on how often you paint the inside of your home.
How Often Should You Paint the Interior of Your House?
For most people, they can plan on their interior paint lasting between 7-10 years. While this is an approximation, there are several different factors that can come into play. Here are some things to think about.
- High Traffic: There are some areas in your home that will see more traffic than others. You may find that you have to repaint these areas more than others. Areas like your mudroom where shoes leave scuff marks on the walls. Hallways are also a place where you may notice that there is more wear and tear on the walls. Other high traffic areas could include the kitchen or the bathroom. In the kitchen, there is food and grease that impacts the paint. The bathroom has so much water and humidity, that it can cause issues with paint. These high traffic areas are sure to need to be painted more often.
- Forgotten Areas: There are portions of your home that are easily forgotten. Whether it is a closet or the ceiling, you may not realize these areas need some attention. One area in particular will be the ceiling in your kitchen. There is likely grease that can start to buildup on the ceiling that will leave it looking less that acceptable. You may find that you need to touch up baseboards as well since they are easily scuffed.
- Change of Aesthetics: You may find that the design in your home needs a change. There is no better way to switch things up than to paint the walls. This can leave homeowners painting more often if they are ready for something new.
- Weather: The weather is another factor that can impact your interior paint. If you live in an area that has salty air, you will more than likely need to have the walls painted more frequently. Intense sun exposure can also cause fading to happen with your paint as well.
