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 cabinet painting

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.

interior wall painting

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.

baseboard painting

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.

exterior painting

Exterior

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 detail painting
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!

5 Tips for Choosing a Denver Painting Company

There are many Denver painting companies all claiming to be the best in the business. So how do you choose who you’re going to give your business to? We’ve compiled a list of five key things to base your next paint contractor decision on in the Mile-High City.

1. Research

Before calling any Denver painter, it’s best to do an extensive amount of research on both the service you want done and the company itself. If a painting company talks a lot about its commercial exterior painting and you are looking to get a residential interior paint job, odds are that is not going to be the best company for your job. Many painting companies specialize in specific painting services, while others have a wide range of service offerings. Make sure you know exactly what you want done before beginning the research process.

2. Get Multiple Quotes

Once you have a good idea about the painting service you want done and have researched a few companies that you think might be good fits, it’s time to give them a call! When calling a painting company to give you a quote there are a few important things to make sure you ask about.

  • Timeline – When will they be able to get you in and how long do they estimate the job will take?
  • Price – How much do they estimate the entire project will cost?
  • Colors – Do they have the color(s) you are looking for or have the ability to match them?
  • Special Requests – If you have any special requests or unique circumstances, make sure they can accommodate them before proceeding in the process.

It’s important to note the professionality of the company on these calls as well. This is almost always an indicator of how the rest of the company experience will be.

3. Look at Reviews

Reviews are a behind the scenes look into a painting company’s reputation. If a company has mainly negative reviews about the same things, odds are they are real issues and not just a disgruntled customer. Look for painting companies with many positive reviews and customer testimonials.

4. Ask Questions

When determining if a painting company is a good fit for your job it is best to know what questions to ask. This can help narrow down your options and confirm what companies really know their stuff. For example, when inquiring about an interior residential paint job, be sure to inquire about the safety of chemicals in the paint used. Often times non-reputable companies will use lower quality paints with higher levels of toxins to lower the cost.

5. Pay Attention to Details

When choosing a Denver painting company, it’s important to take all aspects of the process into consideration and not just go with who gives you the lowest quote. Once you’ve decided on a company, make sure you get a written contract and read over even the smallest details. If something doesn’t seem right to you, inquire with the company to ensure the work is done properly and you are protected if anything goes wrong.

At Paint Denver, we take pride in our top of the line work and superior customer service. That’s why we’re the most trusted Denver painters in the business. We care about our customers and getting every job done quickly, professionally and correctly. Contact us today to schedule your commercial or residential paint job with the best Denver painting company.

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!

Interior Painting: Make a Big Impact with a Small Budget

If you’re looking to give your home a revamp for a small investment, interior painting is the best option. Whether all of your walls need some TLC or a few rooms just need a little updating, interior painting is a simple, low-risk and low-cost solution. So how do you make the biggest impact with a small budget? Being an interior painting company, here are a few of our expert tips to making your home look brand-new without breaking the bank.

interior painting

Accent Wall

The money saving tip here is simple. Paint one wall of a space to be the focal point instead of painting the entire room. The accent wall is usually a bolder and more eye-catching color than all of the other walls in a room. For example, if you already have neutral colored walls (i.e. white, beige, gray etc.), you might consider painting one wall a vibrant shade to accent existing upholstery or art work in the room.

interior painting

Small Bathroom

Small bathrooms don’t have to be plain and boring. Bring life back into a dull bathroom by adding a pop of color via interior painting. Colors should be chosen by determining other accent colors throughout your home (think art or curtains) to create a more cohesive feel throughout the house. Since smaller bathrooms have less wall space than other rooms of your house, less paint will be needed to make a big statement, which means savings for you.

interior painting

Laundry Room

Laundry rooms are the perfect space to play with the fun bright interior paint colors you love but don’t dare to use in the main areas of your home. A bold marigold yellow or playful orange are perfect for these small spaces and might even make the daunting task of doing laundry, a bit more fun!

interior painting

Small Kitchen

You may be surprised by the kitchen making this list, but allow us to explain. Contrary to popular belief, kitchens actually have a pretty minimal amount of paintable wall space. And what small amount they have, should be put to great use by being painted a strong and opposite color than the rest of the room’s features. For example, in a small kitchen with primarily white cabinets and backsplash, a dark shade of blue makes the crisp white stand out even more, giving the space needed dimension.

There are plenty of ways to give your home new life with interior painting. By updating a few walls or small rooms, you can give your home the update it needs for a cost you can afford. Our experienced interior painters know how to make a revamp happen quickly and effectively and will leave your house looking better than new! Give us a call today to get an interior painting quote and learn what we can do for your home.

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.
