3 Signs Indicating It's Time to Repaint Your Home's Interior

Repainting your interior walls can be very beneficial, enhancing a room’s lighting, space, comfort, mood, and aesthetics, especially after years of constant wear and tear.

Nothing is more pleasing than upgrading your home’s interior with a fresh coat of paint. Repainting your interior walls can be very beneficial, enhancing a room’s lighting, space, comfort, mood, and aesthetics, especially after years of constant wear and tear. If you’re unsure if it’s time to repaint your home’s interior, here are three signs indicating it’s time to repaint and upgrade your interior walls.

Bubbling, Cracked, or Peeling Paint

Over time paint can deteriorate, causing bubbling, cracks, or peeling on your interior walls. It can be an eyesore and leave the exposed areas of your wall vulnerable to many elements that can damage its integrity, causing scratches, scuff marks, stains, mold and mildew growth, and structural damage, to name a few. If you’re beginning the paint on your interior walls is bubbling, cracked, or peeling, this is a clear sign indicating it’s time to repaint.

Fading Colors

Fading colors is another clear indicator that it’s time to repaint. Over time the paint on your interior walls can succumb to the surrounding elements such as sunlight causing its color to fade. Fading colors can be an eyesore ruining the aesthetics of a room while also diminishing the layer of protection that paint provides for your wall. If you notice the colors on your wall are fading, it’s best to consider repainting with the same color or a new color that creates a whole new look and feel for your home.


Although most paint jobs are expected to last throughout the years, it’s recommended that you repaint your home’s interior every five to ten years. So, if the paint on your walls looks outdated or has been there for over five years, it’s time to repaint. Both the paint and painting methods used during a paint job can impact its longevity. For instance, varying paint brands have different life expectancies, so high-quality paints are projected to last between seven and ten years, while poor-quality paints can last less than five years. It’s also important to consider the steps taken during the painting process, like the number of coats applied or whether the wall’s surface was cleaned or primed, which can significantly impact how long an interior paint job will last.
