Create a fresh look with paint

Giving your home a fresh look is as simple as painting the walls. A new coat of color can drastically change the ambience of a room, and new paint instantly makes a room feel cleaner. Repairing holes, scratches and imperfections from normal wear and tear will also make you fall in love with your rooms again. And painting exterior walls can make a home look brand new.

There are also practical reasons to paint. Good quality paint actually protects walls (especially exterior), which are prone to damage from environmental factors, such as temperature and relative humidity variations. For exteriors, repainting regularly can help avoid damage to wall surface and prevent further structural damage.

If your style tastes have changed, painting is a quick and simple way to transform rooms without too much cost. You can also create a special room in your home–a nursery, office, playroom or bathroom–and set it apart with paint patterns and contrasting colors. There are hundreds of ways to get creative with paint.

If you are putting your home on the market soon, painting is definitely in order. Research shows that updating the paint can increase the real estate value of your house. Real estate agents and professional painters both recommend that sellers paint their houses in neutral shades throughout. Neutral colors help the house to look fresh and clean, but it also makes it easier for buyers to envision their belongings in the home. Likewise, painting the house in colors that are prominent in current design trends will draw the attention of people scrolling through home listings in their area. There are many paint colors that can help you sell your home and your interior painter can be a great resource to help you pick the right one.

To get the most enjoyment out of your new paint job, consult a professional painter. He or she can repair any wall damage, help with finish selections and bring your vision to life. So all you have to do is pick the color!
