Whether you hire a professional to paint the interior of your home or you do it yourself, it’s one of the least expensive and more instantly gratifying home improvement projects. Also, painting the interior of your home is one of the most dramatic changes you can make to your home.
Save Money by Doing it Yourself
Save money on paint: Many home improvement stores will sell mistinted paint. This is usually paint that was specially mixed, but was not the right color. You can often find incorrectly tinted paint in the colors you want being sold for much cheaper than having the paint specially mixed.
Another way to save money on the cost of paint is to purchase it from a recycling center. Many times, recycling centers will accept donations of extra paint from construction companies or from other homeowners. These recycled paints are often considerably cheaper than buying brand new paint and occasionally you can even obtain free paint this way.
What to Expect from an Interior Painting Job
- Materials: You will need brushes, rollers, rolling handles, paint sprayer, buckets, paint, primer, drop cloths, paint pans, caulk, tape, and sandpaper.
- Timing: Painting a single room will take between a half to a full day, but an entire house can take up to a week or more, depending on the size of the home.
- Mess: Most of the paint mess will be contained to clothing and drop cloths. Otherwise, the messiest part of painting is cleaning the brushes at the end of the day and putting back any furniture or other household belongings you may have moved in the process of painting.
- Lead-Based Paint: If your home was built before the 1980s, you could have lead based paint in your home. This should be checked and removed by a professional.
