Four Manageable Paint Projects

When last did you look at your home with fresh eyes? Go for a walk-around and pay attention to signs of peeling paint on your back door, wall blemishes in your hallway, dog scratch marks in your kitchen.

It’s easy to get used to the inevitable wear and tear, but if your home’s starting to look a little rundown, don’t worry: we’ve got 4 simple projects that’ll give your home a quick facelift and make it feel like an all-new space that you and your visitors will love!

Project 1: Doors

Let’s start at the front door. Is the paint faded or chipped or peeling or discoloured? Maybe the colour is outdated? Giving your front door a fresh coat of paint will do wonders for your home and boost its curb appeal.

Inspect the inner and back doors too, touching up and repainting as necessary to freshen up your home with very little effort or cost.

Project 2: Trim

Repainting interior trim is a quick and easy way to brighten up your house and get rid of the inescapable scuffing and dirt build-up that comes with time.

Project 3: Hallways

Hallways see a lot of activity. And because they’re generally narrow, they’re likely to be touched, bumped, kicked and smudged frequently. If you have small kids, get down on your knees and survey the damage from their level – it’s likely to be significant! If scrubbing can’t remove all the marks, it’s time to repaint. It might not be possible to paint only the damaged portions and still match the colour, so you’d be better off repainting the entire hallway.

Project 4: Bathrooms

Bathroom paint has a lot to contend with, including moisture, dust, grime and strong cleaning chemicals. The good news is that because bathrooms are usually small and don’t cost the earth to paint, they can be quick to fix.
