House Painting

Give Your House a Fresh Coat of Paint in the New Year!

One of the easiest ways to breathe new life into your home in the New Year is to give it a fresh coat of paint. Over the Christmas period, especially if you aren’t working, repainting your house can be a fun and creative activity to use your break productively.


A fresh coat of paint over an existing wall can do wonders to make a room look brand new. Or, to really refresh your house, a feature wall can have stunning results. If you’re feeling especially brave, you might even want to go for the Pantone colour of the year for 2018, 18-3838 Ultra Violet.

Repainting your interior walls is also good for taking care of your house. It’s best practice to repaint hallways, corridors, bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms about every three years. Living and dining rooms tend to suffer less wear, and should probably be repainted every seven years.

To get the best results, some things to keep in mind when you’re painting indoors are:


  • Start with a clean surface. If there are oils or dirt on the surface you are painting, the paint is more likely to chip or peel.
  • Mix several cans of paint into a larger bucket. Make sure you have enough paint to use for the entire surface you are covering in one bucket; this will ensure you have a consistent colour.
  • Keep a ‘wet edge’ while using a paint roller. This means you need to slightly overlap each roll you paint along the wall. This stops paint from partly drying before being painted over again, which can cause streaking.
  • Pay careful attention to masking. Messy edges on your paint job can really ruin a lovely coat of paint, so make sure you keep it neat by carefully aligning tape before you start a job.
