Residential painting is one of the best returns on investment in your home. Whether you have faded, chipping paint or you’re looking for a way to update your interior design, consider these factors as you prepare to freshen up your home with interior or exterior paint.

Choose Your Color Carefully

There is practically no end to the number of colors, hues and sheens available for paint. The sheer amount of options can be daunting, so it’s important to consider your color carefully. Ask a professional about the differences between sheens and to look for colors that match your existing decor or your plan for your home. Spending extra time selecting your paint can prevent regretting the particular shade or hue after the project is completed.

Invest in Quality Paint and Primer

It can be tempted to choose a budget brand of paint for your residential painting project. Quality paint is set at a premium price for a reason and you may even find it is the more cost-effective option in the long run. Low-grade paint typically requires additional coats and begins to peel, chip and fade before quality paint and primer.

Match Your Interior Design

Complementing colors can unify your home design and achieve the emotion you’re looking for in a particular room. Whether you’re going for a bright and airy yellow or a calm, peaceful blue, be sure your paint color complements your furniture, wall hangings and flooring.

Work With a Professional Painter

Residential painting is not a project to tackle on your own. The specialized paint brushes and rollers, drop clothes and other materials alone can significantly add to the cost of DIY painting. Any mistakes will cost you even more time and money.
