How Often Should You Paint Your Home’s Interior?

How Often Should You Paint Your Home’s Interior?

Posted By

Painting the interior of your home is one of the most effective ways to increase its value. A fresh coat of paint can work wonders for your home. Some homeowners add a fresh coat of paint to update the colors of different rooms, while others repaint their interior to keep dust and rust at bay.

One of the most common questions we hear from homeowners is how often should they paint their trim, walls and ceilings? As one of the premier house painters in Windsor, we feel confident reminding our clients that your interior does not need to be painted as frequently as your exterior.

How often you need to paint your walls will depend on how you use your rooms and the level of wear and tear. Here are some general recommendations on how frequently you should paint the different areas of your home.

Living Room and Dining Room

How frequently you need to repaint your living rooms and dining room will primarily depend on the quality of paint used. High quality paints can stand up to wear and tear and are durable enough to withstand regular cleaning. If you used a high-quality paint, you won’t have to repaint these rooms frequently.

House painters in Windsor recommend repainting living rooms and dining rooms every 5-7 years. With a low-quality paint, you will have to repaint these rooms more frequently (every three years or even sooner).


In a typical home, the hallways get walked through more often than any other space. So, it’s no wonder homeowners see more dents and scuff marks in their hallways than in any other room. Have a professional repaint your hallways every 2-3 years to maintain the area and mitigate any potential damage.

Kitchen and Bathroom 

The kitchen and bathroom are some of the most important rooms in your home. In the kitchen, oil splashes, heat produced during cooking, and grease can damage paint. Moisture in the bathroom can cause paint to peel off your wall.

If you are considering a kitchen and bathroom makeover, it makes sense to add a fresh coat of paint. Kitchens and bathrooms should be painted every 3-4 years. Painters usually use high quality, durable paints on the walls in these rooms to ensure paint jobs last as long as possible.


Adults typically do not spend as much time in their rooms as kids, which is why adults’ rooms need to be repainted less frequently than kids’ bedrooms. The paint used on the walls of a bedroom occupied by adults typically lasts five years or more.

For kids, the walls of their rooms are their canvas. They scribble and paint on their walls. The walls in kids’ rooms get damaged and dirty quickly. A child’s room may need to be repainted every 3-4 years.
