When it comes to taking care of your home, there are a variety of cleaning and maintenance tasks that need to be carried out to maintain its value.  While some of these duties should be done each week, others may need to be revisited every few years, such as the maintenance of your painted interior walls.  A clean, maintained paint job will make your home look more inviting and more put together.  Repainting your home interior is a great way to make a big impact, but it’s also a smart investment.  At Productive Paints Painting, we provide a variety of residential painting services in New Jersey area.  In this blog, we’ll brush you up on the signs that indicate your home could benefit from an interior paint job.


How Often

Before we dive into signs that indicate you need a fresh coat of interior paint, we’ll take a moment to answer how often your interior walls should be repainted.  Compared to exterior paint, interior paint will last much longer since it is not exposed to weather.  Typically, to keep the interior of your home looking fresh and appealing, Productive Painting professionals recommend having the inside of your home painted every five to seven years.  There are many factors that can affect the longevity of interior paint, like the type of paint you use, the luster, how many coats are applied, and the amount of time between repainting.  Remember, high traffic areas are likely going to need repainting sooner.


Signs that you need interior painting services

Different areas and rooms inside your home can benefit from a fresh coat of paint at different times.  However, it is a good idea to keep a lookout for signs on your interior walls to determine whether or not they need to be repainted.  While interior painting companies recommend repainting your interior every five to seven years, it really boils down to the area of your home that is affected.  Here are a few of signs that suggest interior painting is a good idea.


Signs of Wear

If your interior walls are showing signs of wear and damage, it’s worth contacting interior painters to apply fresh paint.  Peeling, bubbling, and cracking paint are signs that the paint was not properly applied.  The paint can succumb to the elements like smoking, cigars, or pets.  Additionally, signs of wear may indicate that you have a mold or dry rot issue at hand.  These signs should not be ignored, as they may lead to larger issues down the road.  Interior walls most susceptible to experience wear and tear tend to be hallways, corridors, and children’s rooms.  Additionally, damage and scuff marks in your kitchen, living room, and bedroom may need touching up.


Color Is Fading

Many factors can contribute to the fading of your interior paint.  After some time, the color of your interior paint will begin to fade due to light exposure.  One thing is for sure, fading paint will make the interior of your home to appear worn and stale.  When the interior walls in your home no longer possess vibrant color, it’s time to contact an interior Productive Painting company to inquire about repainting the space.  Keep in mind, dark paints fade noticeably quicker than lighter colors, so rooms with darker walls may require a new coat sooner than others.


Ready for A Change

You spend a lot of time inside your home; therefore, you should enjoy the space, especially the color of the walls.  It is not uncommon for homeowners to become tired of their coloring in their home, and if this is your case, it is time to change the tone of the walls.  By upgrading the walls with a new color, you can create a more fresh and stylish space that is both trendy and fun.  Refresh your mind, with a room repaint.


Color Trends

Color trends change every three years.  Additionally, accessories follow the color trends.  The Pantone Color Institute named Viva Magenta as its official color of the year for 2023 for its joyous yet powerful nature.  A red with subtle notes of purple, magenta flawlessly complements many different color palettes from those on the richer, jewel-tone side of the spectrum to even a lighter, earthy palette.  Benjamin Moore pivoted away from the soothing shades of years past to proclaim Raspberry Blush as their official color of the year. The decision denotes a greater movement within the interior design industry towards more saturated shades.  Savannah Green is a great example because it has a citrusy, acidic quality that may be unexpected for a wall color, but when used in a room it creates a space that is both playful and sophisticated all at once.  C2 Paint announced Tiramisu, a coppery, midtone brown, as their color of the year which perfectly embodies this movement towards organic tones.  These colors ground spaces in comfort and stability while providing a nuanced backdrop.
