The desire to repaint your home’s interior can be crushed when you consider how much painting is actually involved. Where would you even start? The foyer? Kitchen? Basement? With so many options, picking a starting point can be overwhelming and prevent you from starting the project altogether. But with this prioritization guide, you’ll be able to get every room painted without breaking a sweat!
Number One: Bedroom and Bathrooms
It’s best to get these rooms out of the way first, as they’re places meant for relaxation when other painting projects get to be too much. Even when you have more work that needs to be done, at least you’ll have a comfortable, finished place to sleep or take a bath without being surrounded by clutter. It’s important to have space where you can de-stress and slowly decorate without feeling claustrophobic. Your bedroom, in particular, can hold a lot of stress if you go to sleep and wake up surround by boxes and things from other areas of the house.
Number Two: The Kitchen
A change in paint color can do a lot in switching up how you see and experience your kitchen. Painting can create a new atmosphere, turning a place that’s meant for only cooking and cleaning into a room that you like to hang out in with friends and family. By not painting the kitchen first, you have time to eat or cook whatever’s in your fridge before your appliances are unplugged and your food starts going bad. Leaving you’re kitchen unplugged for too long can also result in you eating out more.
Number Three: The Living Room
You’ll find the most, and heaviest, furniture in the living room, which is why it’s best to tackle this project towards the end of your remodel. Doing this room first would most likely wear you out before you get a chance to paint the other rooms. Because you don’t have to worry about food going bad or not having a relaxing place to recharge, you can take your time in moving your furniture away from the walls and painting at a slower pace. And once you’re done, you know that there isn’t another room that needs a new coat of paint around the corner.
