In Minnesota, we all spend more time indoors during the winter. Even the hardiest winter enthusiasts need to warm up from time to time. The more time we spend indoors, the more likely we are to notice things we might want to change. Maybe your walls are as white as the snow outside. Maybe they haven’t been painted in a decade or longer and it shows. Or maybe you just want to freshen up your walls or change the look and feel of your rooms. No matter why you want to paint, there are many reasons why winter is the best time to get it done.
Spring, summer, and fall are busy times for painters, especially those who paint exteriors, as well. That high demand can also drive up prices. Why not have your project done when demand is lower and the painters have more availability? Doing so can save you money, as many painters offer discounts during the winter months. It will also be easier to find a painter because they won’t be occupied with larger, more expensive exterior painting jobs.
Because your painter likely won’t have as many jobs in the winter, they’ll be able to start on your project quicker. They’ll also be able to dedicate more time, focus, and manpower to your job. Not only will this help you get your job done faster, but it also may improve the quality of your project if your painters aren’t distracted by other priorities or fitting you in between other customers.
If you host get-togethers during the holidays, there is a possibility that your walls got scuffed or roughed up in some way. Even if they didn’t, sometimes just having so many people in your home can make you hyper aware of its shortcomings. If your walls are on that list, now is a great time to do something about it.
Seasonal affective disorder is real. According to the Mayo Clinic, SAD is a disorder that saps your energy and makes you feel moody due to the changes in the seasons, most often in the winter months. While you can’t control the seasons, you can control the environment inside. Certain colors have been linked to improved productivity, mood, and morale. Winter is a great time to select one of those colors and liven up your walls with professional painting.
Just as new paint can improve your mood, it also improves the aesthetics of your home overall, and that is something to be proud of. Now that people are less busy due to the holidays, it’s a great time to invite them over and show off your recent home improvements.
When it's 10° below and you can't open windows, low-VOC and no-VOC paints are a must. VOCs are volatile organic compounds that can give off vapors that linger and negatively affect air quality. Eliminating them reduces much of the smell and concerns commonly associated with fresh paint.
Spring and summer are busy seasons for everybody. Why not take advantage of the slower pace of winter to get that interior painting done? That way, you’ll be able to turn your attention to other projects once the weather improves.
