Painting / June 29, 2022
Spring is a great time to tackle projects around the home. The weather is favourable enough for either indoor or outdoor work, and getting the projects out of the way frees up time for you to enjoy the nice summer weather. A fresh coat of paint is a good way for you to improve the look of your home without investing a lot of money and time, and if you hire painting services in Scarborough, it requires a minimum of effort on your part as well. Here are some specific painting projects to consider this spring.
Expert opinions are mixed as to how often interior walls need to be repainted. Some say repaint on a regular basis, while others say that you only need a new paint job when the current one starts to look shabby or worn out. Even if your walls do not “need” a new paint job, you may feel that you want to repaint to revitalize the room or change its looks. There are many different ways to go about this. If you want to change the character of a room, you can choose a different colour or finish. If you like the look of the room but just want to make it look fresher and newer, you can choose the same finish and colour. If the current paint job is mostly intact, you may choose to touch up spots where it is damaged. Another option is to make the room look more sophisticated by painting an accent wall. A fresh coat of paint can improve the look of a room in ways you may not anticipate, and the end product may exceed your expectations.
In most homes, the interior doors are usually one of two colours: natural wood or white. In the latter case, the light colour may show scuffs or stains, and you may want a fresh coat of paint to restore them to their original pristine condition. However, just because doors are usually only one of two colours doesn’t mean that they have to be either one or the other. Painting a door an unexpected colour can add some personality and make a room unique.
It is not only the interior of your home that could benefit from some sprucing up. The exterior has been subjected to months of harsh winter weather, which can cause the shutters and trim to start cracking or flaking, making them look rougher than normal. This in turn causes your house to look older and more run down. You can touch up the rough spots to refresh your home’s exterior or repaint the shutters completely to give it a whole new look.
If you want to keep the look traditional, you can stay within the same colour palette even if you do not choose the exact same colour. If you want a look that is a little more daring and modern, you can choose a colour that contrasts with the colour of your home’s exterior to make it really pop.
Structurally, patio furniture is typically not a part of your home, but it does affect its exterior appearance. Both metal and wooden patio furniture can benefit from a fresh coat of paint. If you cannot afford new patio furniture, repainting can at least make it look new.
When it comes to wooden furniture, you should sand it before painting it. Not only does this make painting easier, but it also helps keep you safer because it smooths down any splinters that may be sticking up.
