Homeownership is a constant process of improvements. Not only are you taking care of annual and long-term maintenance, you are also keeping the home modern and stylish along the way. Home improvements are a wonderful way to maintain the value, comfort, and aesthetic appeal of your home, and homeowners are always looking for smart ways to do upgrade.
Interior and exterior paint might be the perfect way to improve your Blaine MN home. Most people thing of repainting as a form of redecorating. You can absolutely use paint to redesign, but paint is also essential to surface-layer home improvements.
Let’s explore the top six ways that Blaine interior & exterior home painters can enact repairs and make your home a nicer place to live.
1) Restore Exterior Siding
Exterior siding is often the most neglected aspect of home maintenance, but it doesn’t have to be! Siding that is still in good condition can be completely refreshed with a new layer of paint or the appropriate finish. In many cases, the old layer of finish will be removed and the siding will be inspected and, if necessary, repaired. From there, new paint is applied in a color of your choosing. The home will look fresh, new, and clean in a way it hasn’t in over a decade.
2) Remove Scuffs and Stains
Walls take a certain amount of damage over time. Scuffs and minor stains are considered wear-and-tear for paint. You may not be able to scrub away stains if the paint is too soft, and scuffs can damage the paint so that only new paint can fix it. You don’t have to live surrounded by scuffed walls. All you need is a fresh coat of paint and all those scuffs and stains will be completely gone.
3) Child-Proof and Pet-Proof the Walls
If your house is home to an active family, it can really help to have the right paint. Gloss and semi-gloss paint is washable with a sponge and more resistant to damage. This makes it ideal for families with pets and children. Repainting the interior of your home can make it much more resistant to mess, scuffs, scratches, and crayon without impacting the quality of interior design.
4) Personalize Rooms and Outdoor Spaces
Home painting is often used to personalize a house for the current residents. Painting a bedroom makes it feel more personal for the family member who sleeps there. Painting a family room can make it feel more welcoming for the whole family. You can even use exterior paint to personalize the home or the porch or sheds and out buildings.
5) Reclaim a Once-Personal Room
You can also use interior painting to reclaim a room that was once personalized. Empty nesters often repurpose bedrooms into guest rooms. Right now, spare rooms across the country are becoming home offices. By repainting, you can bring back that neutral, professional feel of an personalized room, making it more welcoming for guests or working at home.
6) Upgrade Style & Increase Resale Value
Interior and exterior painting your Blaine home is an excellent way to upgrade the style. For your family, you can update an older home to feel more open and stylish. For a home you plan to sell or rent, a fresh coat of paint makes the home look and feel newer. An upgraded style brings a home competitively onto the market, appealing to what buyers and tenants are looking for today.
