The winter season is upon us, which means your unfinished exterior home remodeling efforts may need to be put on hold. The good news is that cold, winter days don’t have to be wasted. In fact, they offer the perfect opportunity to tackle interior house painting projects. Here are six good reasons why you should consider hiring a professional painting company to paint your home interior this winter.
1) Painting Projects Are Less Pricey
If you put off all of your interior and exterior house painting projects until summertime rolls around, you will be handing off a big chunk of change all at once. Spring and summer are high-demand seasons for professional painters, so painting quotes are competitive. But wintertime is an extremely slow season for painting companies which can be great for customers looking to spend less.
Customers can often save 20 to 40 percent off peak season interior painting prices during the winter. You may also find yourself treated with even more attention and service because your painters won’t have to rush off to the next project. And if you’re a repeat customer, your painting team may even have extra time to paint an additional room free of charge!
2) The Slow Season Offers More Flexibility
Due to the slow winter season, painting companies typically have much more flexibility, which can be a wonderful thing for painting around busy customer schedules. Whether you take time off work during the holiday season to be home during the whole process, or want professional painters working while you are away, they can adhere to whatever fits with your calendar.
If you want more professional painters on your team, additional manpower can be scheduled much more easily during the slow season, as well. More painters mean your interior painting project can get done in half the time! And since the sun rises earlier in the winter, painters can get to work on your project earlier in the day, leaving your evenings free to spend quality time with family.
3) A Mood-Booster for Dreary Winter Days
While the sun rises earlier in the wintertime and is great for interior painting early in the day, evening darkness arrives more quickly. This can affect your state of mind and keep you stuck inside for hours at a time.
Adding a vibrant color to your walls can be a quick cure for your winter blues. If your friends are battling with their own moodiness, try inviting them over for a winter cocktail party to celebrate your new paint colors and transition of your home’s interior. New interior paint is an instant mood-booster for all!
4) A Unique Holiday Gift Opportunity
If you’re looking to surprise your loved one with a grand gesture during the holidays, hiring interior painters can be an ideal gift idea. This is especially true if your partner has been dropping hints about wanting to revamp one of the rooms in your home. New coats of paint paired with some new furniture will please your loved one every time they walk into the room. It’s a gift that truly keeps on giving!
If you feel that your partner would like to be more hands-on when it comes to painting, professional painting companies can help in the following ways:
- A free color consultation appointment. Try scheduling one as a surprise!
- Have the painting company take a picture of the room and digitally paint it a new color. Then print the picture and gift it to your loved one to show them what’s in store.
- Gift your partner with the signed painting contract. Try stuffing it inside their stocking or placing it in a holiday card.
- Have one of your partner’s favorite rooms painted in their favorite color while they aren’t home. Your loved one will come home to a newly painted room (and another item crossed off your “honey do” list!).
5) Cold, Dry Air Helps Cure Paint
Summer days may be perfect for catching rays by the pool, but sweltering temperatures are far from ideal for interior painting projects. This is especially true if you live in a humid climate. The more humidity your house endures, the longer it will take for your interior paint to dry. But when the air becomes dry and colder, paint will cure noticeably faster – which means a faster interior paint job.
6) Helps Maximize Home Value for Spring
If you are planning to sell your home, you and a rush of other home sellers are likely waiting until springtime to enter the market. But if you want to beat the other sellers at their game and sell your home for more money, a fresh coat of paint on your bathroom, kitchen, living room, or bedroom walls can help lure buyers in. A lack of internal color is one of the biggest financial mistakes a home seller can make.
Choosing to paint the interior of your home in the wintertime will help you gain an advantage over your competition, plus maximize your time as you are getting your house prepped and ready to sell later.
Interior painting during the winter can be a wonderful option for many home owners. With a solid plan, the right paint colors, and a great professional painting company in your corner, painting the interior of your home during colder months is often a better idea.
