Painting is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to beautify your home while increasing your property's value. A fresh coat of paint cleans and updates practically any surface and can make your home's exterior or interior look brand new. Whether you plan to put your house on the market, or you just want to renew the home for your own enjoyment, there are many painting services that can provide the look you want.
The exterior of your house provides the first impression to visitors, neighbors and those just passing by. Painting provides a quick and easy opportunity to improve your home's curb appeal. Just a few coats of professionally applied exterior paint can erase years of dirt, grime and discoloration. Painting the shutters and trim can add a decorative touch, while painting the front door a contrasting color will add personality to the front of the home.
In addition, there are other painting services that can be performed to beautify the exterior of your home. For example, the house can be power washed to remove mold and mildew. If you have a deck, painting contractors can repair rotted wood and then stain and seal the surface. They can also repair and replace worn and outdated stairs and railings, in addition to cleaning, repairing or replacing gutters.
The interior of your home should reflect your personality and be a source of comfort and beauty. Whether you prefer neutral or bold color palettes, painting one or several rooms will allow you to transform your home at a fraction of the cost of renovating it. In addition to painting the ceilings, walls and interior trim, consider adding crown molding, which is a cost-effective way to obtain an expensive look.
Also, don't be limited by basic paint. Textured paint can cover imperfections and add a dramatic effect. Wallpaper can also be added to--or removed from--any room for an instant update.
If you want to renovate your kitchen but don't have the budget to do so, painting the cabinets is the next best thing. Also, if you have a laminate or vinyl floor, a new design trend is to have it painted and then sealed with a clear polyurethane. In addition, painting an outdated kitchen or dinette set can breathe new life into these items. Other furniture in your house that has seen better days can also be painted to look brand new.
Another inexpensive design idea that is gaining popularity is repainting appliances. You can have the look of stainless steel, or choose black, red, metallic blue or many other colors to complement your kitchen or laundry room.
