Whether you’re preparing to sell your home, or you’re really just looking for a fresh change, painting is one of the best remodels you can opt for. When you think of remodel you probably think of a much larger or involved process, but the change your home can experience through a simple coat of paint on the walls is really extraordinary. Not to mention, a new interior or exterior paint job can really give your home a dramatic makeover while increasing its value and putting you under much less of a headache!
When doing a full remodel of a room in your home to make it something new, like a kitchen or a bathroom, you may not realize how stressful it is going to be. Essentially, you’ll be losing an entire room of your home for days, weeks, or months, and you may be required to take days off from work so you can be home for the team to work on the remodel towards completion. This may not be a big deal for a couple of days, but what if the remodel takes a significant amount of time?
Fresh paint in the home doesn’t take near as much time or invasive work as a full room remodel, and you won’t be required to take as much time off of work as your remodel gets underway. What you’ll find, however, is that your particular room or entire home gets an entirely new look, but without all the fuss or mess.
With a full remodel, you’ll also have to consider the cost of the remodel and the value the remodel brings to your home, and after all is said and done, you may find that what you had to put into the remodel out of pocket really cut into the increased value your home was given.For instance, if a homeowner spends X amount on a kitchen remodel, and the increased home value is just around the same amount, but in the process they lost use of their kitchen for a month and were required to use their time off, what did they really gain out of the experience at all? Withinterior or exterior painting, this is something you don’t really need to worry about, as this is one of the most cost-effective and value increasing home improvement steps you can take.
Rather than going all-out when you feel your home could use something new, why not see if interior or exterior painting can do the trick instead? A fresh coat of paint can make a big change in your home, and really breathe new life back into your space, all while you get the benefit of a great value increase and a simple way to make your home new again!
