Right now, most of us are finished with our interior spring cleaning. With the warmer weather, many people turn their attention to the exterior of their home, thinking about cleaning, repairing, or repainting the home’s exterior. Exterior painting not only adds beauty to your home, but it also adds protection for your home. We like to say it this way … Exterior Painting Equals Protection. Interior painting is similar in that it both beautifies and protects your walls and other interior painted surfaces. It is a good idea to update your interior with a fresh coat of paint every few years to keep your home healthy, looking its best, and to maintain or increase the value of your home. We’ve compiled a list of the top five benefits of having a painting contractor paint the interior of your home this year.
Painting your home is one of the simplest and least expensive ways to increase the overall value of your home. This is true for both your interior and exterior surfaces. Painting your home can communicate to potential buyers that you have taken good care of your home. It can also help sell a home that’s on the market faster, even over asking price.
Even if you are not planning on selling your home in the foreseeable future, a good interior paint job by a professional painting contractor can last up to 7 years. It is an investment in your home that truly pays off.
Since interior painting is a relatively inexpensive way to update your home, it can be one of the best tools you can use to make your home a more comfortable and happier place. If you haven’t painted your home recently and have older colors that you either don’t like anymore or didn’t choose, your home may not feel like a space where you truly feel comfortable. Additionally, many people are working from home and/or staying home a lot more so making the colors in your home appealing is a higher priority.
Depending on what color scheme you go with, a new paint color can help you feel differently — calm and relaxed (blues and greens), energetic and productive (yellows and oranges), or even feel comfortable and content (neutral colors). If you are having trouble choosing the best color(s) for your home, talk with our color consultant. At Flying Colors Painting, we work with an incredibly talented interior designer and color consultant named Diane Peck. Find out more about what Diane can do for your home!
Having your interior painted protects your home now and prevents future damage from occurring in and outside of your walls. Most interior walls are made of materials that naturally absorb moisture. Over time, too much absorption can lead to compromised walls which can be dangerous to your home’s structural integrity. Moisture inside walls is a catalyst for mold growth which can lead to health concerns. Paint is designed to seal out moisture from getting into the porous walls of your home.
Additionally, high-quality paint used by a professional painter will protect your walls from everyday wear and tear. From your dining room chair rubbing against a wall to the damage done from children or pets, paint acts as a barrier between you and your home.
Paint quality has improved greatly over the last few decades. Thanks to technology and a growing interest in our health, many interior paints now are made with low or zero VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Volatile Organic Compounds are “carbon-containing substances that easily become vapors or gasses.” (Green Home Guide.) Over time, not just during the paint drying, these substances release into the atmosphere and can cause respiratory and health problems. Low- and no-VOC paints release less or no gasses into your home.
If you or your loved ones have allergies, asthma, or are sensitive to chemicals, this is a huge benefit and a great option for your home. A fresh coat of paint also keeps dust and other allergens to a minimum which will improve your home’s air quality even more.
All homes have flaws and imperfections. Walls often have dents, dings, and marks from the use of your home over time. Having your home’s interior painted removes those imperfections and can make your home look refreshed and clean.
A new paint color for your interior can also modernize your home. To bring your home up to date, take a look at popular colors like Naval and Coral Clay, both by Sherwin Williams. Dark blues, sage greens, and bright jewel tones have hit the top of the list for many homeowners and home décor color enthusiasts and have set the tone for paint colors for the near future.
At Flying Colors Painting, we want to help make your home or building look and function exactly the way you want it. That way, you can enjoy all the benefits – protected walls, healthier breathing, increased home or building value, and more.
