5 Ways Painting Will Increase Your Home’s Value

A little paint can go a long way when it comes to sprucing up your home and increasing its value. It has been proven time and time again that a fresh coat of paint, while a small investment up front, can have a big payout when it comes to selling your home. Although painting the exterior and interior walls are the most common ways to make a big difference, there are some smaller details that, when done professionally, can greatly improve your home’s look and thus, its value.

Kitchen Cabinets

A simple way to breathe life into a kitchen is by giving the cabinets a fresh coat of paint. If you’re looking to sell your home, we suggest a neutral color, such as white, which will appeal to most buyers and give your kitchen a clean, modern look. Don’t want to change the color? A quick coat of paint from our expert color match will remove any scuffs or scratches and refresh your whole kitchen! This is a big project, especially if you have a large kitchen, so hiring a professional cabinet painter is highly advised.

Walls

Painting a home’s interior walls can completely change its look and feel. By opting for a more neutral color like white, beige or grey, it is easier for potential buyers to see themselves living there and gives them the opportunity to paint the walls a bolder color if they so desire. Freshly painted interior walls are the easiest way to make your home look brand new and not break your bank. Talk about making a big impact with a small budget.

Baseboards

An often-overlooked aspect of interior home painting are the baseboards. If you are short on time or budget and can’t get to painting all of the walls, a professional baseboard paint job is the next best option. Trim gets scuffed, scratched and faded almost as often as walls do and can have a huge impact on the look of a room. By giving them a fresh high-gloss coat of paint, you can give any room an instant refresh.

Two words – curb appeal. Anyone who’s ever tried to sell a house knows that a great looking exterior is key. Getting a professional exterior paint job can take your home from drab to fab and increase the selling price dramatically. When painting the exterior, sticking with soft neutral colors is a safe choice, while a bold color can add character and drama.

Exterior Details

If painting the entire exterior of your home isn’t an option, updating the paint on the exterior details like trim, shutters, front door and garage doors, is the next best thing. These aspects are often overlooked but can make a big difference to your home’s exterior. Looking to go bold? Paint your front door red. Want a crisp, clean feel? Keep all accents and details white. Trust us, updating the exterior details is better than not updating the exterior at all.

When selling your home, it is always a good idea to get a professional paint job on at least one, if not all of the above facets. They have been proven to dramatically increase the selling price and reduce time on market, which sounds like a win-win to us!

When to Update Your Home’s Exterior Paint

When to update your home’s exterior paint can be a bit of a guessing game unless you know what to look for and when the best times to do so are. We’re going to let you in on a few professional exterior painting tips to help you recognize when your home needs an exterior update and the best time to go about getting it done.

Seasonally

Spring and summer are the perfect time to update your home’s exterior paint job. Especially in Denver, the weather is more predictable and the higher amounts of sunlight cure and dry paint faster. Winter is not ideal for Denver home exterior painting due to the typically colder temperatures and increased precipitation. If you absolutely must paint your home’s exterior in the winter, be prepared for the job to happen on short notice. If the weather looks like it will be moderate for a few days, a professional painting company will want to get the job done as quickly as possible to avoid possible interruptions or damages.

Cosmetically

It is fairly easy to determine if a home needs a new exterior paint job simply by looking at it. If there are chips in the paint or if it looks a bit faded or worn, it is probably time to consider getting an update. Make sure to look at the exterior trim and accents as well as the main house siding, as these aspects are often overlooked and can make a big difference in the appearance of your home’s exterior.

Situationally

If your home has suffered some sort of damage to its exterior, whether that be hail damage from a sudden Denver summer storm or has accumulated many scuffs and knicks from yearly wear and tear, getting an updated exterior paint job is a good idea. Putting off fixing a damaged exterior paint job will only make the situation worse and can lead to more chipping and peeling.

Another good situation to paint your home’s exterior is if you are selling your home in the near future. It has been shown time and time again that homes with recently painted exteriors have sold faster and for more than those that have not. Having great curb appeal is a huge part of selling your home, and the best way to give it an instant boost is with a fresh coat of paint.

Keep in mind that these are simply tips and best practices for home exterior paint updates. If you have any questions regarding your home’s exterior paint job, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We are more than happy to offer our expert opinions and get you scheduled as soon as possible for an exterior home revamp. In the meantime, check out our portfolio of past home exterior paint jobs!

Tips to Boost the Curb Appeal of Your Victorian Home

Victorian homes are homes built in the Victorian era (1840-1940) that have very distinctive style and character elements. As beautiful and historical as these homes are, they require a fair amount of maintenance and upkeep to preserve their curb appeal. But don’t worry, we have a few tips to help you keep your Victorian looking its best.

Exterior

The exterior is arguably the most important part of your Victorian home’s curb appeal and there are many factors that can diminish its beauty. The most common problem with not just Victorian homes, but all homes’ exteriors is weather damage. The sun can cause color fading and rain storms that can wreak havoc on older paint jobs. It’s important to keep your home’s exterior paint fresh and chip-free to ensure top-notch curb appeal. Victorian exterior house painting is a bit more complicated than other types of home painting, as there are often more colors used and intricate designs to maintain. Hiring a professional Victorian house painter is pertinent to the job getting done correctly and looking its best.

Landscaping

Another major aspect of a Victorian home’s charm is the landscaping surrounding it. A vibrant and lush garden is the perfect complement to the home’s dramatic exterior and requires a good amount of maintenance and care to uphold. Some tips to making your Victorian garden as fancy as possible are coordinating the color scheme of your home’s exterior to the garden plants and keeping a consistent feeling of whimsy throughout. These can be done by careful planning when it comes to which plants you choose to have. For example, if your home’s exterior has a purple color scheme, think about planting flowers with violet hues such as Wisteria and Heliotrope.

No matter what style your Victorian home and garden are, the most important factor to maintaining great curb appeal is upkeep. Scheduling regular exterior paint touch-ups and sustaining a healthy and lush garden are pertinent to keeping your home looking its best.

Will House Painting Increase the Value of My Home?

When selling your home, you are always hoping to turn a profit. While there are many ways to ensure you get the most for your asset, increasing your property’s value through home improvements is one of the most tried and true methods. How can you easily and effectively increase the value of your home? That’s where we come in.

Exterior Painting

We’re talking about curb appeal! When people see a well taken care of home exterior, they automatically assume the interior is held up to the same standard and are more likely to be interested. When it comes to the exterior of your home, the easiest way to see a quick return on your investment, is by getting a professional exterior paint job. Can’t do the whole exterior? Painting the trim, gutters, shutters and windowsills is an easy way to refresh your home’s exterior look without breaking the bank. A fresh coat of paint on your home’s exterior is the simplest way to take your curb appeal up a notch or two.

Interior Painting

Don’t want to do an expensive home remodel? A professional paint job is a great way to update your home’s interior without committing to costly renovations. Professional interior painting can increase the selling price of a home by hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. By choosing a color that appeals to many potential buyers, you can increase the amount of interest in your home as buyers prefer “blank canvases” when it comes to home design.

Choosing the Best Colors

Once you’ve decided to revamp your home’s paint job, the question is now what colors to go with. A tried and true method is to stick to neutral colors to appeal to the most potential buyers, but a recent article from Time.com suggests going bluer may be better. Blue hues, when used sparingly in interior house painting, have been proven to boost home values, especially when used in bathrooms. Different colors have different meanings and can convey various emotions, for example, blues and greens tend to be more calming colors and are better used in bathrooms and bedrooms.  A good rule of thumb is to stick to muted shades, no matter what color you decide to go with, as bolder hues tend to be not as pleasing on the eye.

When it comes to selling your home, getting a professional paint job is a quick and easy way to increase its value and appeal to more potential buyers. And when selecting a Denver painting company to get the job done right, there’s only one choice. Give us a call at 303-800-7575 and see how we can take your home to the next level.

What to Look for in a Professional Interior Painter for Your Home

When shopping around for a professional interior painter, there are a lot of important things to look for. While most people are concerned with the cost and time of an interior painting job, there are a few other key factors to take into account when researching Denver interior painters.

Great Reviews

We live in a world where people can write their honest opinion of just about any product or service online, for the world to see.  Just as you would get a referral from a friend, reviews provide you with insights from real customers. When shopping around for a service, especially interior painters, taking reviews into account is a great way to see previous customers’ experiences and determine whether a business is trustworthy. For example, Paint Denver has an entire page on our website dedicated to what customers are saying about us, and any reputable company will too.

Professionalism

While this may seem obvious, not every Denver interior painting company understands professionalism the same way. When deciding which house painting company to give your business to, remember that you will be working with them closely until your project is complete. Good communication and professional attitudes are always good things to look out for and can usually be recognized within the initial interaction with the company. If they seem to know what they’re talking about and are friendly and helpful, chances are they will continue to be that way throughout your work with them. After all, interior painters rely heavily on customer referrals for business, so they want you to be completely satisfied with the service they have provided.

Experience

When receiving quotes from various interior painting companies, make sure you inquire about their crew’s experience. Less experienced painters tend to be cheaper but can make more mistakes when it comes to prepping surfaces and following all proper protocols. You don’t want your house to be their guinea pig or trial run, right? Generally, the more experienced a painting company, the better a job they will do.

In the end, you want to select an interior painting company that wants to collaborate with you. Asking the right questions and knowing where to look for reviews can ensure that you find the perfect interior painter to partner with.
