Interior Painting

Painting the inside of your home can completely transform its aesthetic and style. Interior painting allows you to refresh décor, brighten up dark rooms, and showcase your personal taste. It’s an affordable way to revive living spaces without major remodeling.

When planning an interior paint job, it’s important to consider the existing paint condition. Prepping surfaces properly through cleaning, sanding, spackling, and priming ensures the new paint adheres smoothly. Painters use techniques like brushwork, rolling, and sometimes spraying to apply the finish coat.

Choosing the right sheen is also key. Flat or matte paint works well for walls and ceilings by hiding imperfections. An eggshell or satin sheen adds a subtle glow without being overly shiny. Trim and doors are often painted in a semi-gloss or glossy sheen for a lacquered effect.

Color selection can be the most fun yet daunting part of the planning process. Coordinate wall colors with your furnishings and flooring. Accent walls in bold hues add drama while neutral tones keep things calm. Your lighting and room size also impact how colors appear.

Hiring professional interior painters ensures a quality job with seamless results. Or you can tackle DIY painting with proper preparation and technique. Whichever route you choose, a fresh coat of interior paint allows your home’s true personality to shine through.
