If you want to give your home a whole new look and feel, painting your home’s interior is a great choice. Painting is the most affordable and easiest way to rejuvenate and update your indoor space, especially when compared to other major home renovations. Though painting doesn’t take too long, you won’t be able to use the rooms while they are being painted or until the paint is dry. Brilliant Colours Professional Painters in Winnipeg share some information on prioritizing rooms for painting:
Which rooms to paint first when painting the whole house?
The bedrooms: The first rooms you should have painted are bedrooms where people currently sleep. Having these painted first will ensure you still have an escape from the rest of the house while it’s being worked on and you don’t have to worry about where to put your kids to bed in the meantime.
The bathroom: The bathroom can be painted on the same day as the bedrooms. Obviously, having access to the main bathroom will be very important to your family.
The Kitchen: Painters will tackle your kitchen as one of the first few rooms in the house. This is so you can gain access to the hub of the home and start using it as soon as possible.
Living room and family room: Because these rooms are probably the largest rooms in the house, they will take longer to paint. It will also take longer to move furniture and put drop clothes over everything to protect your items. Once it is finished you can move the furniture back and start enjoying this updated living space.
Which rooms to paint first if you are painting on a budget?
If you are on a tight budget, you might choose to only paint one or two rooms at a time and then wait several months or a year to paint the others. If this is the case, there are some rooms you should prioritize.
If you can only paint a few rooms in the house at a time, choose the rooms your family spends the most time in. Brilliant Colours Professional Painters can help you choose paint colours for your living room and kitchen that will modernize those spaces while complimenting the rest of your home’s style and design. You can put rooms like the bedrooms, bathrooms, basement, hallways and laundry rooms on the list next. Learn more about how to choose a paint colour.
If you are planning to sell your home soon, focus on the kitchen, bathroom and main living room. Kitchens and bathrooms are the first rooms a buyer will look at if they are interested in your home. Making sure these main rooms are updated can help attract buyers and make your home more marketable.
What about painting the outside of the house?
Obviously, spring and summer are the best times to give your home an exterior paint job. An exterior paint job can completely change the aesthetics of your home and really boost curbside appeal, improving your home’s resale value. A fresh coat of paint can turn your tired exterior into something beautiful while adding additional protect to your home from the harsh elements outside.
When choosing colours for your home’s exterior, you should consider your personal taste as well as the general style of your neighbourhood. If you’re planning on selling your home in the future, choose neutral colours as bold colours might not appeal to the average potential buyer. Brilliant Colours Professional Painters can help you choose an exterior paint colour that will add visual appeal and value to your home. Read these tips on how to select exterior paint colours.
