Like everything else in your home, your living room’s paint will also come to a point where it will be degrading and past it’s intended life expectancy, resulting in the need for a fresh coat of paint. Repainting your living room is something that should be done every few years, and there are some tell-tale signs that you’re due for a repaint. Some are more obvious than others. Here are 5 signs that it’s time to repaint your living room.
Peeling or blistering paint is a rather obvious sign that you need to repaint your living room’s interior as these problems are both obvious and unsightly. Paint peeling and blisters are problems that often stem from a subpar paint job. If the painter skilled applying a coat of primer, or didn’t do proper surface preparation before painting, you’ll likely see peeling and blistering down the road. To combat this, the peeling and blistering paint will need to be scraped off the affected area and repainted with high-quality paints. It’s also recommended that proper painting preparation be done to minimize the odds of this occuring down the road.
If you see dark streaks and marks in the crevices and corners of your living room that won’t come off no matter how hard you scrub them, these might be the dreaded scuff marks. Scuff marks happen when something is rubbed too hard against a surface, like when you hi the brakes too hard and see scuff on the road. These scuff marks can occur in your living room from moving or rearranging furniture, but also easily concealed by your furniture. If you’re having difficulty concealing the scuff marks, it’s likely time for a fresh coat of paint to solve the problem.
Have you noticed your living room appears more dull than usual lately? Is it missing that shine and appeal it once had? This might be the case of fading paint and is a tell-tale sign that its time to repaint your walls. Fading paint can happen for several reasons such as using a lower-quality paint, but in most situations, paint simply fades naturally over time as it’s exposed to everyday life, sunlight and more. If you’ve had your paint for a while now and have been noticing that the colour isn’t as bright as it used to be, it’s likely time for a repaint.
Trends come and go, and with the rise of social media, we’re exposed to new trends on a daily basis. Many people get caught up in old trends and are reluctant to change, but staying on trend with your home’s appearance can dramatically increase the perceived value of your property. At the end of the day, your living room should make you feel happy and comfortable, so if repainting your living room to match one of the latest trends is what makes you happy, that’s a sign you should start planning your repaint.
Over time, preferences and styles change for everyone, and many homeowners often find themselves questioning why they ever picked that colour in the first place. If you’re questioning why your living room is still green when that hasn’t been on trend in the last decade, it’s a clear sign it’s time to repaint your living room. It’s important that your living room evokes a sense of comfort.
