Painting / September 6, 2022
Whether you’ve lived in a new-construction home for a year or two or you’ve just bought an ancient fixer-upper, you likely understand the importance of the paint colours on your walls. Colour can transform a room and brighten your mood — or it can make a room feel oppressive, small, and depressing. Learn more about why fall is a great time to paint your home and consider the benefits of giving your residence’s interior a fresh coat of paint (in whatever colours you choose)!
The more humid it gets, the more difficult it is to paint properly — even if you’re only painting indoors. Humidity can affect how well paint sticks to your walls, and it may seem like it takes forever for your interior to dry if you paint on a humid day. The opposite is true, too: Drier air lends itself well to painting conditions as it helps paint to adhere more quickly and dry faster.
Painting can easily be combined with other home improvement projects you have planned — especially ones that you may have been putting off in hopes of more temperate weather. If you’re considering renovating an area of your home, installing a fence, or building a deck, it might be a good idea to schedule your painting project alongside one of these.
Regardless of whether you choose to repaint in the fall or during another season, painting your home can lend a refreshing vibe to the space. Consider the following three reasons for sprucing up your space this fall.
Did you buy a home that’s decorated perfectly to the previous owner’s taste? Or, perhaps you’re a lover of colour and purchased a property that was painted shades of gray? Painting your indoor space can free you from the stagnation that comes from living with a colour you don’t like — or one that simply bores you — for years on end.
This is an especially important point to consider if you spend a lot of time from home or you work from a home office. If you’re spending most of your day in a certain room, think about what colours inspire your productivity and happiness.
It should go without saying that living in a house full of peeling walls isn’t ideal. If it’s been a long time since you’ve done anything to your home, you might not be aware that there are many benefits to giving your walls a fresh coat or two of paint that goes beyond aesthetics. A fresh coat of paint can help seal out moisture, protect your home from excessive wear and tear, and keep plaster dust out of your home.
Last but not least, if you’re selling your home (or planning on putting it on the market soon), it’s imperative to touch up the rooms that need it. Fresh paint can attract potential buyers to your home, while neutral colours will give them the opportunity to envision their own lives in the space. Stay away from bright colours or unconventional choices if you’re painting with the hopes of selling. It’s more likely that buyers will want to put their own touches on the space.
