6 Reasons to Add a Coat of Paint to your Home

Most homeowners agree that one easy way to refresh a home is to paint a few rooms or the entire property. Painting produces an immediate change, whether it’s just the walls of your home or the cabinets and countertops!

1. Cleanliness
A fresh coat of paint on the walls tends to make a home look cleaner which can be a big motivating factor if you’ve been trying to keep your house clean.  New paint will also help to cover up your old dirty walls and baseboards and if you are a DIY kind of person, it’s rather inexpensive.

2. Protect your walls
Life happens, and sadly the walls on the inside of our home can get worn.  When permanent stains or marks are difficult to remove, painting the house inside and out will help to hide these defects.

3. Easy & Affordable
A new coat of paint is by far the easiest and most affordable way for you to achieve the change you are looking for in your home.

A fresh coat of paint can help to increase your home’s value. So if you are thinking of selling your home, this can likely help, as it will have a clean, fresh look, which is very appealing to the buyers.

4. Painting is fun
If you haven’t painted before, you should give it a try. Painting with a friend or loved one can be a lot of fun. It’s a great way to spend time together and you are working together to make your home look and feel better!

5. Love your “new” room
A fresh coat of paint can give you a whole new outlook on your home, which can have an impact on your life.  Lighter colors tend to open up a room, pastels can be calming, and bold colors can help you with making a statement. 

6. Other ways to freshen up your home
Not only will painting your interior walls freshen and clean things up, but painting your cabinets and/or countertop can make your living space look like an entirely new room! One of the best things about painting your countertops or cabinets is how much money you will save not replacing them which can be very pricey.
