Whether you’re a self-confessed home improvement fanatic who will take any excuse to open up a new tin of paint and get stuck in, or a DIY-phobe, who’s reluctant to even look at a paintbrush, it’s undeniable that redecorating your home can have some great benefits.
So if you still need convincing that replacing that 60s fireplace and artex ceiling is a good idea, here are a few reasons that make redecorating worth the effort.
Making it your own
If you still haven’t redecorated since moving into your new home, you’ll be amazed by how much of a difference it will make to the feel of your new abode.
Removing someone else’s décor, no matter how nice or inoffensive it may be, is a big part of stamping your own personality on a house and really making it your own.
Revitalising your home
Even a simple coat of white paint will refresh and revitalise your home. And the more effort that you put in, the more it will feel modern and rejuvenated.
When you live in a house, it can sometimes be difficult to see when the décor is becoming a bit tired. But by redecorating every few years you can ensure that your home stays looking its best.
Whether you live in a period home or a new build, maintaining the features of your home is an important and on-going process.
Sash windows, floorboards, work surfaces and doors all need a bit of TLC every once in a while. And the process involved in preparing and repainting or re-varnishing your home’s features will help to keep them solid and resilient.
It’s no secret that a home that’s well maintained and contemporary design will have more value than a similar home in poor decorative condition.
Even if you’re not planning on selling any time soon, regular decorating will help to keep your home looking great and in good condition, so when it is time to sell, it will be a lot easier to get is ready for the market.
