Repainting your entire home

Written by David | January 14, 2022

Have you just bought a new home? Or have you been in your home for some time and ready for a refresher? In either case, we thought we would do a quick blog post to show what repainting your entire home may look like.

Repainting handrails in your home

One of the most popular things to do is refinish or repaint oak spindles and handrails. The number one color is black handrails and newel posts with white risers and spindles.

Removing or stripping wallpaper in your home

Removing or stripping wallpaper accounts for quite a bit of the work we do. Most of the time, we are removing the wallpaper to replace it with something new and modern. In this home, that was the case. Their wallpaper selections were a few months back-ordered, so we just stripped the wallpaper so the walls were ready when the wallpaper arrived.

In this bathroom, we removed the wallpaper, then had to skim coat the ceiling as the paper was a little difficult to remove because the previous installer did not prime the ceiling before installing the wallpaper. The ceiling will just be painted this time. We also repainted the trim in the room, and the homeowner will repaint the vanity.

Repainting ceilings and walls in your home

For this home, we repainted walls, ceilings, and trim. The older color of an off brown, was about 15 years old. So we updated the trim to a new brighter white, painted the ceilings a flat pure white, then painted the walls Agreeable Grey. I think it was a huge transformation.

Repainting your entire home is never without drywall repairs

As in any repainting job, this home was not without the drywall repairs. Many of them were as simple as filling in holes from older pics. But some were a little more.

Are you ready to repaint your home?

Not a lot of words in today’s post. Sometimes, pictures just do the work for us. The one question you may ask is how much it will cost to repaint my home. I would love to say here is the cost, but we can’t. Several factors are used to develop estimates on painting homes:

  • Are we painting walls?
  • Will the ceilings be painted?
  • Do you want the doors painted?
  • Would you like windows or window trim painted?
  • Does the trim or doors require any repairs?
  • Changing colors can require three coats to cover older colors.
  • The type of sheen you want will affect the cost of materials.
  • Is there some, a lot, or no drywall repairs to be made?

These are most, but not all, considerations considered when we are doing a painting estimate for you.
