Painting your home is the perfect way to freshen and revitalise a home and it is also the best way to protect wall surfaces and timber trims. Painting the external walls of a clad home can give a completely new look and feel to a home and offer maximum impact for minimal expense. Painting internal walls and trims will change the feel of a home and can also change the sense of space and light within a room.
If you are selling your home it is advisable to have a neutral colour on all internal surfaces. This will allow a prospective Purchaser to see your home as a blank canvas that they can put there own style and feel into. Purchasers can be deterred from a home if the wall colour is not to their taste. Even though this is something that can easily be fixed it is quite often something that Purchasers cannot see past and can loose a sale.
When you have purchased a new home it is a great idea to remove the colour scheme of the previous owner to immediately make your new house feel like your home and not have the feel of the previous owners.
Painting the interior of your home it is best to use neutral, light paint colours in all living spaces. A light colour paint will give a room a sense of space and light. Bedrooms can be painted with a darker colour to give a feeling of calm and cosiness, but if a room is small it is best to just paint a feature wall. By contracting a professional painter to paint your home the process can be completely faster than if you were to attempt this large task yourself and painters will also have the equipment and skills required to paint difficult to reach areas, such as stairwells and cathedral ceilings.
External wall surfaces, gutters, downpipes, eaves, barge boards, timber work and window and door trims should be kept well painted at all times. This will protect these surfaces from wear, tear, rot and rust. If these external areas are kept well painted then the life span of the cladding, gutters, downpipes, eaves, barge boards and timberwork and trims will be extended and save money in replacing these items. It is advisable to contract the services of a professional painter for external painting as this work quite often involved specialised equipment such as scaffolding and extension ladders. Professional painters have both the equipment, insurance and experience to paint homes with difficult to reach areas.
