Moving into a new home can be an exciting change. Whether you’re buying your first home in Portland, this is your third home, or you’re getting a vacation home to share with your family, there is always a long list of to-dos before you are ready to move in. After the drudgery of paperwork comes the time to decorate your new space using all of your saved interior design ideas.
Even though you’ll probably be anxious to start life in your new home as soon as possible, Bluenote Painting wants to encourage you to take care of one huge task before unloading that moving van: painting.
Having the best paint colors in your home before you move in will save time, stress, and money. Here are some reasons why you should get started on house painting before moving in:
- Save time and money. Painting your home when it’s still empty will save you countless hours of work. When a home is empty, painting becomes a much simpler task. Rather than having to move and cover furniture, take paintings off the walls, etc., professional painters can come right in and get to work. This not only saves time on your end, it also saves the professional painter’s time. Paint jobs will go much more quickly when the prep work is minimal.
- Makes decorating easier. If you haven’t purchased all of the furnishings for your new home, having your interior painted will help you make those big decisions. The colors you choose should be based on how you want the room to feel as well as the lighting available. Furniture selections can come next. If you already have furniture, choosing paint colors can still happen before your furniture is moved in. Just incorporate the color and design of your furnishings when you’re testing out colors. Keep in mind that you can always easily change up small decor items like pillows and other accent items to tie a room together.
- It makes it yours. When you first buy a house, it may take some time for it to feel like your home. Covering each room with a fresh coat of paint that you choose will start the process of truly making it yours. It is the first stamp of your style in the home. Whether the previous owners kept things neutral or had a flair for wild colors, you need to add your own touch. After your home is painted it will feel fresh, clean and familiar.
Whether this is your first home or you’ve been down this road before, painting each room before moving in is a time saver and a money saver. Not to mention it’s the best way to freshen up your home before really getting settled in.
