Interior fashion trends last three years.   In 2020, everyone painted their interiors grey.  It was subtle and bold.  With pops of red or orange, grey blended with most couches and modern designs.  Grey accented with yellow rugs and couch pillows were contemporary and midcentury modern.  In 2022 the most popular color is griege which is a blend of grey and beige.  If you are a trendsetter, then you need to repaint every 3 years.


Living down the Jersey shore, the salt and humidity will dull the luster of your interior paint.  Cheaper paints will peel and chip in dry acrid environments.  In cities with all the dirt and soot, interior paint will get dirty faster.  Open windows with eastern and southern exposures will fade the walls.  Bathrooms have to be tough.  They’re small, so they’re relatively affordable to paint.  However, even a premium paint designed with gloss to repel condensation, heat, steam, and water can only last about 4 years in the best of conditions.  Your kitchen ceiling and bathroom ceiling are more often candidates for a paint refresh than ceilings elsewhere in the house.  Grease splatters and just the film in the air after cooking can take a toll.  In extreme weather or moisture conditions, repaint every 4 years.


Family rooms, living rooms, and dining rooms are communal spaces that get a lot of use.  Kitchen walls tend to be different because cabinets take up most of the wall space. Cozy colors are saturated tones, and they tend to be dark shades of a warm hue, such as red, orange, and gold.  A cozy color also can be a neutral, such as chocolate brown, caramel, fawn, or charcoal.  Hallways get roughed up simply by being narrow.  Union County Painting for communal spaces that get a lot of wear and tear, repaint every 5 years.


Bedrooms are used only for sleeping and relaxing.  Curtains are usually drawn, limiting the light.  The paint on the walls fades less than in living rooms and family rooms.  Fashion changes are easily achieved with bedding changes.  Blue is the color of the sky and the oceans.  As the opposite of red it means silence and peace.  It is often a color which people use in their bedrooms because they may be able to sleep better.  For solitude, a vivacious shade of coral tinged with pink, Raspberry Blush 2008-30 is the Color of the Year 2023.  Marking a 13 birthday by letting your teen select their bedroom color is a timeless memory.  Union County Painting repaint bedrooms every 7 years.


If you live alone and spend most of your week at work, you probably only need to paint every 10 years.
