Whether you love the fall season or dread the close of summer, the months before winter approaches are some of the best to get an array of house chores done. Fall is actually the best time of year for anything and everything home maintenance-related, but especially interior house painting.
The weather is still mild and steady enough for bedroom or kitchen painting, while the fall months offer a great opportunity to make your home all the more inviting as the colder months ahead call for more time spent indoors.

If there is one area of the home that makes the greatest impact, it’s the kitchen. Most people would agree that this room is, indeed, the heart of any home. A painting job that offers a brilliant return on investment is kitchen repainting.
And the good news is that you don’t have to re-paint your kitchen in its entirety. There are a number of different areas you can repaint to breathe new life into your kitchen and your home. For example, you could repaint your kitchen cabinets or a kitchen island for a fresh, new pop of color. It could even be as simple as repainting the legs of your kitchen stools.
For a slightly larger project, consider re-painting an accent wall, a backslash area, or even your ceiling. Make sure to opt for smart kitchen color choices that improve the value of your home and don’t detract from it.
Another great option for interior painting is a bathroom or powder room (guest bathroom). If you own a large or two-story home, you most likely have more than one bathroom. Even if you don’t use your guest bathroom that often, it makes a difference to your resale value if you put some effort into how it looks. Kitchens and bathrooms sell homes, after all!
You can have some fun decorating a guest bathroom and make it quirky and creative, or a little more neutral if you prefer. There are specific colors to choose to make the room appear larger though, so keep this in mind if the bathroom is on the smaller side.
Change things up a bit by adding in a new mirror and faucet with matching hardware.
Aside from kitchens and bathrooms, the master bedroom holds a great amount of selling power, too. If you want to improve or even just maintain the resale value of your home, it’s worth putting some effort into your master bedroom.
You don’t have to commit to re-painting your entire bedroom, either. You could repaint the main wall behind your bed, for example, or add a warm and inviting color to an accent wall. A bedroom refresh could even consist of repainting your window frames or window sills and changing out your drapes.
Maybe you don’t have the budget to commit to re-painting an entire bedroom or your kitchen? If this is the case, you can make a big difference to your home by updating your interior trim. You’d be surprised how outdated trim can bring down the aesthetic of any room.
Not only this but re-painting your trim helps keep it clean and dust-free. If you want to transform a room on a budget, re-paint your trim in a fresh, bright color. It can even make the room look bigger than it is.
This is a painting trick you can use in just about any room in your home to inject some new life and character into the space. Painting an accent wall is quick and affordable — you can have the job done in as little as half a day.
Painting an accent wall depends on the color of the rest of the room, of course, so opt for something that emphasizes your existing color palette so that it doesn’t clash. Add in bits of décor that complement your accent wall color to really bring the room together.
