Paint Your New Home Before You Move In
There is little doubt that moving into a new home stirs up mixed feelings for the new home buyer(s). You may feel excited and happy about your upcoming new experiences, or you may feel concerned and stressed about all that there is to do before, while, and after the big move. You may even be feeling a mix of emotions all at the same time.
One thing that you may want to consider before moving into your new home is whether you want to paint the interior of your home before moving in all of the furniture. Although some people may see this as an added, and even unnecessary stress, others may decide this is the best opportunity to paint before all of your “stuff” is added to the living space, too.
There are many reasons why you may want to paint all, or some, of the rooms in your new home before you move into it. One thing for you to consider is that a fresh coat of paint will help to enhance the cleanliness, crispness, and beauty of your new home. Using your own paint choices will also help to personalize your new home, unlike any other addition.
Another thing that you may want to consider is the ease of painting a room that is already empty, versus having to paint a room that is already filled with furniture and other decorative items. It is not only easier to paint walls that are easy to reach and are not blocked with some type of furnishings, but you can also protect your furniture easier if you paint the walls before placing the furniture in the room.
Lastly, you may want to consider the labor cost that is involved with painting an empty home versus a home that is already filled with furniture. Professional painters will be able to access your home much easier if the home is still relatively empty, which can save time and money over the long run.
Moving into a new home can be stressful, but it can also be a lot of fun and a chance to begin anew with new neighbors, new surroundings, and a new community. Part of settling into your new home includes making the home unique and pleasing to your own satisfaction and personalization.
