How Often Should I Paint the Interior of my House?

Updated: Mar 4, 2023

Interior Painting can rejuvenate any house! New paint can give your home a much needed update and/or maintain and protect highly used areas, but the timing and frequency of Interior Painting is different for each room in your house.


So, let’s break-it-down room by room.


HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PAINT MY KITCHEN?

Kitchen walls deal with steam, smoke, and grease from cooking as well as being one of the most visible rooms when you’re hosting guests. In order to maintain a clean, chic gathering area for family and friends, kitchens should be painted every 4 to 5 years. Interior Painting will eliminate the build-up of stains and odors from cooking; it will also give the room an impressive update, keeping it looking stylish.


HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PAINT MY HALLWAYS, BASEBOARDS, DOORS, & TRIM?

Hallways commonly see increased scuff marks, dents, dings, and/or scratched due to high usage. Baseboards, Doors, and Trim also see higher amounts of abuse, continuous vacuum bumps, run-ins with toys, tools, or other objects, damage from moving mishaps. Painting should be done every 2 to 3 years. Refreshing these areas will keep your home looking like new.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PAINT MY BEDROOMS?

That depends on whose room it is. It should be painted to create a unique space for whoever is in the room. Bedrooms should be painted every 10 years, but could be painted anytime you want a fresh look for the area.


HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PAINT MY CEILINGS?

Unless there is drywall damage from water, mold, or other source, ceiling paint can last for 15 years. However, if you need to repaint any section of ceiling in a room, you’ll want to paint the whole ceiling because the colors won’t match perfectly (the new paint will be whiter than the old paint).
