Interior Painting “Why should I do it?”
I am asked constantly by clients (generally men) why should I paint the inside of my house? My 1st response is usually to say “because she wants you to”; but kidding aside there are a huge assortment of reasons to maintain the paint on the inside of your home.
The 1st and probably most important reason to repaint the inside of your home is to personalize your space. I cannot describe with words the joy our clients get from creating spaces in their homes that express exactly who they are when they are enjoying each room. If we set a mood of calm, serene space to read a book and relax in the tub, or create clean orderly environments with contemporary whites; defining your own spaces to suit your taste can be a very rewarding endeavor.
Another big reason to paint the inside of your home is cleanliness. Have you ever considered the things that have touched your walls, doors, trim and even your ceilings since the last time you painted. The typical 1st step in painting anything is to clean the surface (removing dust particles, oils, germs etc.) then applying premium paints which contain things like mildecides and anti-bacterial agents goes a very long way towards cleaning and disinfecting your homes dirtiest areas (why do you think hospitals and health clinics are always repainting)
Beyond the emotional benefits and the health aspects, it is also important to note that keeping up with the maintenance of your home improves the value. One of the top requests realtors make to their clients trying to sell a home is to freshen up the paint. Our clients that are trying to sell a home often tell me that they wish they had painted the inside of the house three years earlier so they would have been able to enjoy the benefits of painting before they were ready to sell. Guys, my advice is don’t tell your beautiful wife that she has to live with the paint in your house only to be told later by a realtor that she needs to hire a painter to help sell the home. You will not soon live down the “I told you so’s”.
As you can see, painting the inside of your home makes a lot of good sense. Painting helps you to feel happy with your home, healthier in your sacred space and wealthier with your homes improved value. Don’t overlook paintings benefits or underestimate the value of a fresh coat of interior paint.
