2. Fading color

Overtime, exposure to any source of light can fade any color of paint. If there is furniture in the way then it is event possible for there to be outlines on the fall between faded and not faded. If you notice one part of your wall lighter or less vibrant than another part, it’s time to paint your house so call your home interior painting company.

3. Trying to increase your home value/curb appeal

If you have bold bright colors your home may not fetch a high price if you decide to sell. Prospective buyers tend to opt for a neutrally painted home when purchasing. Also, if you have fade, dirty, or scuffed paint, your house may not sell for as much since the new owners will need to do work right away when they move in! Paint your house if you want it to be worth more!
