How Often Should You Paint the Interior of Your House?
Unlike exterior walls, your home’s interior surfaces are not exposed to the weather, so they’re not as likely to fade due to sun exposure or peel in the face of excessive humidity. This means interior home painting projects may not be needed as often as exterior repainting. However, several of the rooms in your home – for example, your bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room – are exposed to ongoing moisture, which can affect the longevity of your interior paint. Hallways and kids’ rooms are more likely to collect fingerprints and dirt than other rooms, as are interior walls with doorways. Baseboards often collect both dirt and scuff marks from foot traffic and exposure to the vacuum cleaner.
What’s more, if you live in the Southern United States, the interior walls of your home may be exposed to above-average sunlight – which can cause paint to fade – or higher-than-average humidity that invades your home from the outside.
All of these factors, not to mention your personal preferences for updating your interior home décor, can affect how often you decide to paint inside your home.
Signs That It’s Time for an Interior Home Painting Project
The best way to determine whether your home is due for an interior painting job is to take a look at your walls, baseboards, doors, and trim and ask yourself:
- Is the paint peeling or cracking?
- Does the color appear faded and dull?
- Are there scuff marks that no amount of scrubbing seems to erase?
