Painting the inside of your home is a fantastic way to add style, integrate your home’s design theme, and rejuvenate the appearance of your home’s interior. The question remains: How often should you paint the interior of your home?

The quickest answer to this question is it’s a matter of personal preference, but on average you should paint the interior of your home every 5-10 years. Ask yourself the following questions to help determine whether your home’s interior is in need of painting.

  • Who last painted your home’s interior? If you’re not sure, you can’t be sure whether the work was done properly.
  • Was the surface prepared correctly prior to painting? Without proper surface preparation, paint may crack and peel prematurely.
  • Is your home’s interior damaged, scuffed, or cracked? If your home’s interior has sustained noticeable damage, you may want to consider re-painting.
  • Are you looking to rent or sell your home? Painting the interior of your home can add visual appeal when buyers take their first tour.
