With many Michiganders returning to the office after a long stint of working from home, we’re all taking a long, hard look at our homes’ interiors. Being stuck inside for so long, our homes have experienced a little more wear and tear than usual. Our kitchens have endured more home-cooked meals. We’ve been running humidifiers and air conditioners. And, well, we’ve been bumping, knocking, and stumbling around inside for over a year. What does that mean? Well, it may be time to consider an interior painting project. Whether you’ve noticed bubbling, peeling, or cracking, you can count on the experts at Van Tuinen Painting to help you determine the cause and, more importantly, the best painting solutions for you. But, how often is it necessary to paint your home’s various rooms? Let’s find out!
Kitchens (3 to 4 years)
As one of the busiest rooms in your home, you’ve probably noticed a little wear and tear in your kitchen. From the high heat of your oven to the inevitable pasta-sauce handprint, kitchens require a little more care and attention than other rooms in your home. By repainting your kitchen every three to four years, you keep your home looking fresh and clean. More importantly, you’re helping to protect your home’s walls from heat, stains, and other damage.
Bathrooms (3 to 4 years)
The other offender when it comes to heavy traffic, your home’s bathrooms endure high levels of heat, humidity, and moisture. From scalding hot showers to inevitable spills and leaks, the walls in your bathroom need some extra attention to stay attractive. Recommended every three to four years, bathroom repainting helps to safeguard your walls from the dangers of high humidity and moisture.
Living rooms (5 to 8 years)
As your home’s central gathering place, the living room is the room that your guests will spend most of their time in. Because of this, it’s important to repaint it every five to eight years. While, by the numbers, it may experience similar traffic to your kitchen, the traffic is usually less damaging in that there’s less heat, spillage, and staining. Properly maintained, or with low traffic, a durable, high-quality paint like the ones used by Van Tuinen Painting will last the full eight years.
