How Often You Should Paint Different Parts of Your Home

Painting different parts of your home

Have you ever sat down and wondered how often your home’s walls and ceilings need to be painted?

Well, apart from simply repainting the house because you got bored with the old colour, there are certain rules of thumb you can follow to know when to repaint your home’s interior.

As much as we’d like to tell you that your home’s interior paints can last forever, the truth is that nothing in this world lasts forever. Sooner or later, the paint on your wall, ceiling, and other things are going to deteriorate, requiring a new paint.

That being said, we want to talk about how often you should paint different parts of your home:

1. Kitchen

Your kitchen is the busiest part of your home, so it’s not surprising that it needs frequent repainting.

Generally, kitchen walls should be painted every 4 to 6 years. However, if your kitchen walls are constantly exposed to grease, smoke or other chemicals, you may want to paint them more often.

2. Bathroom

Although the bathroom should be painted less frequently than the kitchen, you should always paint regularly.

Bathroom walls should be repainted every 3 to 4 years. Again, the frequency will depend on the frequency of the bathroom usage.

If many people use it, then the walls will be exposed to more germs, dirt and other things which may damage the paint.

3. Bedroom

The bedroom is the part of the house that needs the least repainting.

This is because people spend most of their time sleeping in the bedroom, which means that the paint on the walls isn’t exposed to as much dirt, germs, and other things.

The wall paint in the bedroom should be repainted every 3 to 4 years.

4. Basement

The basement, like the bedroom, doesn’t need to be repainted very often. Because the basement is primarily used for storage, it is seldom exposed to dirt, germs, smoke and other things.

The walls in the basement should be repainted every 4 to 6 years. Some areas of your basement will need to be repainted more frequently, especially if they are used on a regular basis.

5. Other Areas

Areas that need to be repainted more often include the space around your

  • •kitchen
  • •bathroom, and
  • •fireplaces

Generally, these areas need to be repainted every 3 to 4 years.

  • Other areas in need of painting include those around your windows and doors.
  • These areas should be repainted every 3 to 4 years as well.

As you can see, the frequency of wall and ceiling paint will depend on the area and the frequency at which it is used. Find out which areas should be repainted and how often it is easier to create a long-term paint plan for your home.

If we can give you one piece of advice, you should paint less frequently. That’s because painting your house is expensive today.

The paints and other materials you will need to repaint your home can be very costly. If you paint your home too often, you’ll spend your life savings on painting your home.
