Having Your New House Painted (Walls, Ceilings, Exterior)

Having Your New House Painted (Walls, Ceilings, Exterior)

The thought of moving to a new house can be exciting and at the same time, overwhelming. One of the factors that anyone moving tends to focus on is hiring a reliable moving company. However, getting to a house that is poorly painted cannot only be a turnoff; it can also make your move unexciting. Have you gotten your new house? Have you taken the time to look at the state of the painting? The state of the painting in your home has an immediate visual impact on your visitors –both interiors and exteriors.

Here is a brief overview of what area to focus on as you have your house painted.

The walls

The appearance of your walls –interior and exterior, is an important aspect of consideration when thinking of painting your house. Applying paint superbly is a great way to express your pride in the home, as well as help in defining the personality of the home. As such, painting the walls of your house is not a thing to do in a rush. You need to take into consideration a few factors. Have you thought about the type of paint you want to apply? If you are moving to your own house, the choice of paint is entirely yours. However, if you are living in a rented house, you need to consult with the house owner on the choice of paint. The paint that you use on your interior walls might be different from the color paint used on the outside walls.

Painting the ceiling

The state of the ceiling in your home matters a lot as far as its appearance is concerned. A painted ceiling not only makes it durable but also attractive. Having your ceiling painted before moving in removes any stains and dirt that the previous tenant left. The color of paint applied to the ceiling is very important. As you choose the color, you also need to factor in the strength and source of light in your house. A lighter color is more preferred. If your house receives bright daylight, having a sky or pink ceiling can lead to an airy feeling. A tomato red ceiling gives a rich glow from the reflection of lamplight or candlelight.

Painting the exteriors

It is a major undertaking to paint the exterior of your house. A well-painted exterior and interior have a great impact as far as the appearance of your house is concerned. You need to ensure that all your exterior elements; walls, roofs, gutters, are in good shape.

As you plan to paint your house, the type of painter you engage is an important factor to consider if you need quality work. Painting is an art that requires a combination of skills and experience. The best painting company should have many years of experience in the work, as well as take pride in having skilled staff. It is recommended to get a reputable company to help you move your belongings to the newly painted house.
