4 Signs Your Walls Need a New Paint Job

When was the last time you painted the interior of your house? If you can’t quite remember, you might be due for a new paint job. But if you need more concrete reasons to tackle an interior painting project, our team at Painters Etcetera can provide some. Whether you plan to DIY it or bring in some pros, the first step is to know when it’s time to repaint your home.  

Here are four signs interior painting should be your next home project.


The color is fading.

When you first paint a room, the vibrant colors bring new life to your home. After you’ve redecorated a room, you just want to sit there and look at it. But over time, the colors start to fade, and your feelings about the room become as drab as the walls. If the color of your walls is noticeably faded, that’s a sign it’s time to repaint.  

You can see bubbles in the paint.

Paint should always be smooth and adhere cleanly to your walls. But if you see bubbles in the paint or peeling areas, that means the paint is no longer adhering to the surface. This could also be a sign that the wrong paint was used for the environment or it wasn’t properly applied. You are most likely to see this problem in humid rooms like bathrooms.  

You can’t remove stains.

Most of the time, you can remove stains from your walls with a basic household cleaner and a little elbow grease. But if you have stubborn stains that you can’t get off your walls, it’s time for a refresh. If you love the color you have now, a fresh coat of paint is often all you need. However, if you’d like a change, this is the perfect excuse to try a new look!  

You just don’t like it anymore.

While there are plenty of practical reasons to take on an interior painting project, you should also take your feelings into consideration. You have to look at your walls every day, and your home should be a place you enjoy being. If can’t stand the color of a particular room, change it! Get some samples and find a color that will make you love that room again.
