Exterior Painting and Other Small Home Improvements to Help Sell Your Home Faster

Selling a home can be a stressful and tedious process. From exterior painting to budget-friendly kitchen renovations, there are dozens of little projects you can tackle in order to make the selling process go more smoothly.

Replacing Hardware

This is one of the most inexpensive and efficient ways to update the interior of your home.

Nothing exposes the age of your home more than outdated or old hardware. Doorknobs, cabinet handles, and light fixtures are simple and affordable components that will bring updated style to your home.

Be sure to focus these improvements in the kitchen whenever possible. An updated kitchen is one of the biggest draws to potential homebuyers as it is often seen as the “heart” of the house.

Exterior Painting

Curb appeal is a major component in selling a home. Any homebuyer who has shopped the real estate market knows that sprucing up the exterior of a home is a major key to selling quickly.

Hiring professional exterior house painters can take your home from drab to fab and increase the selling price dramatically. When painting your home’s exterior, make sure to keep up to date with trends and neighborhood characteristics. If you choose to stick with soft neutral colors, make sure you incorporate some color in the finishing details or with landscaping choices.

Fix Your Flooring

Flooring makes a huge difference in a home.

Replacing your flooring altogether may be a more expensive renovation. But replacing or improving the floors in some of the main rooms in your house is a great way to cut costs. Chances are, you’ll also increase the chances of a quick sale.

Many buyers place an emphasis on a home being ‘move in ready.’ This means that if your flooring is outdated, damaged, or poorly maintained, it may be a deterrent for buyers looking for their perfect home.

Consider a fresh coat of paint on the floors or deep carpet cleaning to increase the interior appeal of your home.

Upgrade Your Home the Right Way

Ultimately, you are the best judge of the renovations you should prioritize for your home. Budget, neighborhood markets, and nearby properties are all variables to consider when preparing your home for a sale.

If you’re selling your home or are helping someone sell theirs, contact us today for a free quote on exterior or interior paint jobs.

4 Things to do to Prepare Your Interior for Denver Painters

Paint contractors understand that, ideally, your Denver painters should be in and out of your home as quickly as possible when it comes to interior paint jobs.

Painting companies want to ensure we’re doing the best work possible and get you back to a normal space as seamlessly as possible. For that process to move quickly, there are a few things homeowners can do to assist with making interior paint jobs efficiently.

Moving Furniture

Interior paint jobs are a bit more tedious than exterior jobs. Moving heirlooms or delicate furniture away from walls or doorframes ensures safety for those items. If you need assistance to move these items, please notify the Paint Denver Team Leader and we’ll take extra care to keep these pieces of furniture safe. For regular pieces of furniture, we will cover and protect the furniture and floors.

To assist with efficient prep work, removing small, fragile, and expensive objects from the rooms that are to be painted would help our team immensely. Any china should especially be emptied from china cabinets and moved away from work areas. Emptying bookcases and removing paintings, pictures, posters, and manageable mirrors from the walls would also speed up the prep work.

Wall Plate Removal

It’s an easy thing to forget. These little plastic fixtures are all removed, put away, then replaced by our crews before and after a job. We want to be sure there aren’t any bare spots where the paint doesn’t cover.

Remove these, along with any vent and return covers and shorten the painting process by a few minutes!

Floor Coverings

We’ll provide these for any job, but if you have sheets and other unused, old fabrics you want to use for protection, set them out!

Our Denver painters always come prepared, but these extra tools may help keep the space protected from accidental spills or splatter.

Prepping the Details

There are a dozen little things our team does to prep a space for interior paint. We clean all surfaces including walls, ceiling, and trim. It’s not always obvious, but these surfaces collect dust, pet hair, and sawdust overtime and could interfere with the quality of the paint job.

We also cover any imperfections in the surfaces with drywall patching. This ensures smooth, perfect paint application.

Most painting companies, like Paint Denver, are happy to do this ourselves. But doing them ahead of time may speed up your home improvement timeline.

Stress Free Interior Painting

Of course, you could just kick up your feet, relax, and let Pain Denver’s team of professional painters take the lead.

We’re happy to prep and paint your interior and keep the home improvement process as stress-free as possible. If you have a painting project in mind, we invite you to schedule your free estimate!

Interior Painting Best Practices

When it comes to interior painting, many people think they can do a DIY job as well as the pros. That is not quite the case. Professional painters have mastered their trade and know a few tips and best practices that take their work from good to great.

Get Good Quality Paint

Many people think all interior paints are made equal. This could not be more untrue. Investing in quality paint will make a huge difference in the short and long run of your interior paint job. That’s why at Paint Denver use only the best quality Sherwin Williams paint with low VOCs to do out interior painting work. We want our customers to love their new home interior as soon as they see it as well as years down the road.

Order Matters

When tackling an interior painting job, the order in which you paint a room is crucial. It is typically best to start with the trim and baseboards and ensure they dry completely before moving on to the ceiling and walls. This ensures any accidental paint from the trim that got on the wall edges can be covered up.

Take all Necessary Precautions

We’ve all heard the horror stories of people who didn’t fully prepare for an interior paint job and ended up painting their floor or, even worse, a piece of furniture. To avoid this mishap, preparation is key. Use canvas or plastic drop cloths to protect floors, cover large furniture that can’t be moved out of the room with plastic, and use masking or painters tape generously along wall edges.

Interior painting is a task that can be easily done wrong. While there are some tips and tricks that can make the process go a bit more smoothly, nothing can beat the work of an expert interior professional painter. Paint Denver offers interior painting in Denver as well as Broomfield, Castle Rock, Golden and other surrounding areas. For help on your next Denver interior painting project, contact Paint Denver to get a quality job done quickly and efficiently.

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.

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.

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.
