When you have guests coming to your home for the holidays it can cause you to stop and take a good look at the condition of your home. Does the décor represent your style? Are there elements that are beginning to look worn or dull? What changes can you make that will have the biggest impact? If you are looking for a way to transform the interior of your home in a short amount of time – a new paint job can do the trick. A fresh coat of paint inside your house can take it from dull and dated to bright and trendy. If a new paint job sounds like the solution you are looking for the question then becomes – can I fit in an interior paint project before the holidays? The answer to that question depends on how quickly you can make design decisions, the scope of the project, and the availability of your contractor.
How quickly you can make design decisions?
If you are the type of person who has to ruminate for months over big decisions then you may need to choose a smaller redesign project to complete before the holidays. However, if you are confident in your ability to make quick design decisions then you may be able to get it done. The biggest design decision that comes with painting the interior of your home is color. The fact that there is a seemingly endless number of color options available can paralyze just about anyone with indecision. If you already have an idea of what you want it can significantly reduce the number of options you have to sort through. You can also ask for color recommendations from your painting contractor to make the process go even more quickly.
What is the scope of the project?
The scope of the project will have a big impact on your ability to get it done before the holidays. Painting one room in your house is typically a simple and quick project to complete. Having the entire inside of your house painted is more involved and will require additional time. Specialized projects - such as painting cabinets – can take longer than the more basic projects. You need to develop a clear understanding of the scope of your interior paint project in order to determine if it can be completed before the holidays.
Is your painting contractor available?
The availability of your painting contractor will also impact whether or not you have time to complete your project before the holidays. If you are considering an interior paint project the very first thing you should do is get in touch with your painting contractor. You can find out if they have room in the schedule for your project and then you can get to work on choosing a color and prepping your home for the painters.
If you get to work right away you may have just enough time to fit in an interior paint project before the holidays. A new coat of paint will freshen up your house and help you feel good about inviting your guests inside. Get the process started by scheduling an estimate with the pros at D&D painting.
