If you have recently purchased a home, you may already be considering painting it because you are unsatisfied with the paint colors chosen by the previous homeowner. Here are four tips for doing this successfully:

1. Hire Painters to Paint Before Moving In: Before you actually move into your home, you should hire painters to paint the interior. If you do need to move some things right away, you can always store them in the garage until the painters are finished with painting the interior of your home. Doing this will ensure that time is saved because you won't have to unpack in your new home just to pack the stuff away again to make room for the painters. 

2. Hire Painters Who Offer a Warranty: There are plenty of professional painters who will offer a warranty on their paint job. If you have any scuffs or marks that show up within a certain time frame, you can hire the painters to come back and do a touch up free of charge. This is especially beneficial when you first move into a new home because, for the first few years that you are living in the home, you are going to want to show it off to friends and family, which means you will want all aspects of the home to be as perfect as possible. 

3. Paint the Closets:  To get the most out of your paint job, be sure that the professionals will also be painting the closets in the home. This way, the paint job is thorough. It's important to consider the closet paint as part of the costs. Most painters will charge by the amount of square footage that they are painting, so be sure that you are prepared by also including the space that the closets take up.

4. Don't Forget the Details: If there are chips in the paint on the baseboards or you are unhappy with the paint color of the doors and the trim around cabinets, windows, and more, it's important that you talk to the painters about painting these areas, as well. This way, you are getting an even more thorough paint job that is going to keep you happy with your newly purchased home. 

When you consider these four tips for painting your new home, you can be sure that you get the job done as quickly and thoroughly as possible so that you can be immediately happy with the interior space and ready to show it off to friends and family.  Click here for info on hiring painters.
