Quick Fix To Increase House Value: Refresh Your Paint Work
Painting the interior of your house is a simple solution to revamp your living space and up the value of your home.
However, it can be hard to know when it’s the right time to start painting.
Picture the inside of an old house – you notice that paint is peeling off the walls and window sills and the paint that’s left is stained and dull. While this is a definite sign that it’s time to break out the paint and brushes, even small discolouration or scratches can leave a home looking tired and worn before its time.
There’s nothing like walking into your home and seeing a fresh and bright colour on the walls. You don’t have to wait until the current paint is peeling to want a new look. You might just want to update the colour scheme or give a brighter backdrop to new furniture.
Not only will a paint job make your living space more welcoming and comfortable, fresh paintwork can make houses look younger. If you’re thinking of selling or renting out your property, a new paint job is a great way to add value. Rather than undertaking a full bathroom or kitchen renovation, start selecting paint colours and you’re on your way.
If you’ve decided that a new paint job is how you’re going to give your home a boost, you may be wondering what to do next. Property owners have two main options when it comes to getting this project underway.
Take the DIY route
TV shows like The Block and Homes and Gardens have motivated many Adelaide property owners to attempt a paint job on their own. It can seem like a reasonably achievable DIY project for beginners with a low level of risk and doing it yourself can seem like the cheaper option.
The truth is, if you want a professional, high-quality result, you will need some background knowledge about painting techniques and the right tools for the job. It can also take longer than you expect and cause some common problems if you’re not sure what to plan for. Most of us have seen at least one house with the window locks painted over.
Before you start your DIY home revamp, you’ll need to purchase the right tools for the job, prepare the areas being painted properly, protect surrounding furnishings, and select the correct paint. Sound preparation is the hidden key to success here!
Hire a professional painting service
If doing it yourself sounds like a problem waiting to happen, you can always hire a professional painting service to get the job done for you. Hiring professional painters to paint your property means that all the work, including preparation, protecting furnishing, and post-painting cleanup, are all completed for you, free of hassle. It will save you time and effort while guaranteeing a high quality, professional result that will last for years to come.
While hiring professional painters for a home may seem like a luxury, they will ultimately save you hours of work and put a stop to any unexpected costs. Professional painters, like the experts at Mott Group, offer:
