The first step in any interior repaint is painting the trim. Luckily, most trim is white, and most homeowners don’t want to spend hours painting it. Unfortunately, this often leaves the room less than perfect. Not to mention, white is an easy color to get dirty, so the white trim might look slightly yellow or off-white. Therefore, it is a good idea to paint the trim a different color before you repaint.
You should consider how frequently you need to repaint certain rooms in your home. If you have a large family or a house full of indoor pets, you may need to repaint these rooms more often. Hallways are the highest-traffic areas, so you may want to repaint them every two or three years. But if you don’t have a large family or pets, you can expect to need to repaint the hallways more frequently.
Total repaints are one of the most popular home improvement projects. While a localized project can have a huge impact, it is not recommended for every room in your home. While localized projects are usually inexpensive, larger projects will result in a unified palette, complete transformation and may be more affordable. If you’re looking to make a big change, go for the larger project. If you have enough money, it’s definitely worth it.
