A fresh coat of interior paint will not only make your home appear more aesthetically pleasing, but it is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to add value to your home. This is especially important if you’re looking to put your home on the market in the near future, but is also a great option even if you’re not planning to sell your home. Scratches, marks, and outdated colors on your walls can make your home look tired and dull. Freshly painted rooms can immediately improve the atmosphere of your home and make it appear new, clean, more modern, and more welcoming. With this in mind, here are some important tips to keep in mind when planning your next interior painting project.
Consider color. If you’re having a hard time choosing a color, it’s usually best to opt for neutrals, specifically in bedrooms, living spaces and kitchens. This will help create a calming effect; plus, neutral shades tend to be the most favored wall colors by home-buyers.
Take care in your work. Potential home-buyers want to know that you take pride in your home and have worked hard to maintain it. Paint spills, paint drips, brush marks, and uneven coats of paint will reduce the visual appeal of your home and potentially decrease its value. Often times, it may be best to hire a professional to make sure that the painting job is completed with expert results.
Don’t cut corners. It’s important to have the proper tools and knowledge to ensure your interior painting project is done right. Professional painters know the proper way to tape edges and which brush or roller will work best in your situation. We know how frustrating and time-consuming it can be to move furniture, take down wall décor, collect the correct brushes and paints, and tape the wall edge, so give us a call today and we can help take the stress out of your next painting project.
Get multiple estimates. You should always get multiple estimates from different painting companies. Get at least 2-3 different estimates to make sure they’re within the same price range. If one estimate seems too high or too low, ask additional questions as to why. Make sure you receive a thorough estimate with a complete breakdown of the painter’s costs and schedule. In the end, getting multiple estimates will save you money and help you avoid future problems by hiring a reputable painting company.
Save money by planning ahead. Planning ahead is an essential step in saving money on your next painting job. Always be organized before you shop. Impulse purchases will sink your budget quickly, so it’s best to make a list of everything you need ahead of time. You should also choose multiple sample colors in advance to help you come up with a color scheme rather than making a last minute decision to settle on a paint color. This will help you make a better buying decision and save on costs.
