When Should you Repaint a Room?

The following occurrences are among the common reasons for repainting a room:

1. The Trim has Become Damaged and Does Not Suit the Room

Baseboards, crown moulding, and other trim typically feature a white and glossy finish. Over time, trim with oil-based paint may start to yellow or show signs of damage. This new colour may clash with the colour of the walls, reducing the appeal of a room. Your trim can also become chipped, scratched, or cracked due to impacts and pet activity. If your trim is showing signs of damage or discolouration, it is a great time to repaint your trim and your walls at the same time to rejuvenate them.

2. Your Walls Have Become Faded or Damaged

The paint on your walls can become faded, chipped, or otherwise damaged over time. This is especially true for busy households with children, pets, and frequent guests. These forms of damage are never pleasing to look at and can become worse over time if left alone. While small chips can be touched up with spackle and paint, fading and peeling are often signs that it is time to fully repaint your walls.

3. You Want to Sell Your Home

If you are considering listing your home, you want to make a strong and positive impression on viewers and potential buyers. A great way to achieve this is to have a professional update the paint throughout your home with a modern and neutral colour. This will make your home look like it has been well maintained, increasing appeal while eliminating the need for potential buyers to paint it themselves after they move in.

4. You are Tired of Your Old Paint Colour

While a paint colour may have matched your home’s décor and your style a few years ago, it may no longer align with your vision for your home. If you have grown bored with the current look of your home, repainting your walls in a different colour is a great way to make it feel like new.
