The colors we choose to paint our homes say a lot about us—but there always comes a time when a new coat is in order. By recognizing that your home’s current paint is due for a refresher, you can easily create a living space that feels exquisite and modern. Here are four telltale signs that it’s time to repaint your home’s interior so that you can ensure you’re living and enjoying a space that’s cozy, inviting, and functional!

1. Your Colors Have Faded

Few things in life last forever, and the paint on your home’s walls is no exception. There can be numerous reasons for paint deteriorating and fading, as well as signs you should look for. When you walk around your home, look for paint that’s exhibiting signs of decay or that’s started to appear dull, bleached, or faded. In addition to faded colors, paint can inherit unpleasant scuff marks or stains that can’t be removed via cleaning; in these cases, sometimes a fresh coat of paint is the best answer.

2. Your Paint Is Cracking or Peeling

Another obvious sign that it’s likely time to repaint is if your paint is noticeably compromised; this includes cracking, peeling, blistering, bubbling, warping, etc. These issues are not only unsightly, but they usually also mean there’s some type of underlying issue that’s threatening your home.

3. You’re Noticing Signs of Water Damage or Mildew

When water or moisture doesn’t fully evaporate, it can create mildew, which in turn can wreak havoc on paint. If left unaddressed, this issue can also have health implications in addition to threatening your home’s beauty and structural integrity. But did you know that a fresh coat of paint can help thwart mildew before it even has the chance to form? This is because it seals the walls—but it’s also important to properly prepare the surface beforehand and ensure it’s repaired and uncompromised.

4. You’re Wanting to Sell Your Home

If you’re gearing up to sell your home, you’re going to be showing it to potential buyers—and if they’re impressed with your home’s look as they’re touring it, they’ll certainly be more likely to buy it. This is especially important because the average homebuyer is going to be looking at several homes, so if a fresh coat of paint can make yours seem more well-maintained and visually appealing, that’s reason enough to commit.

If you can’t remember the last time you painted your home, that likely means it’s time! In any case, when you decide to repaint your home, you should also be sure that you’re seeking assistance from a talented professional team of painters; since they’re licensed, insured, and qualified, you’re certain to have the best experience and unlock beautiful results.
