Why is Winter the Best Time to Paint Your Home?

After working from home for nearly a year now, are you in desperate need of an interior makeover, but don’t have the budget for remodels? Interior painting is an effective, affordable project to take on, and conveniently, winter is the best time to paint the inside of your house!

During the winter, you’ll have several paid holidays and three-day weekends. Since you won’t be going to visit family, you can celebrate the new year by sprucing up your home and giving it the modern and refreshing makeover it needs! With a fresh coat of paint in your home office, living room, or kitchen, you can help set a positive mood.


There are countless new interior painting trends that can make your home feel and look more modern, clean, and on-trend. Small changes, like painting your kitchen cabinets, adding an accent wall, and using the latest colours from Plascon or Dulux that have a relaxing, spa-like feel to them are all great ways to increase your home’s value and decorate it according to your unique taste.


Although you may think that paint dries faster in the summer month, that’s actually not true. The warmth of the summer usually means that there will be more humidity in the air. For water-based paints, this can make the paint thinner, yielding less-than-ideal results. Since winter air is cold and crisp, you won’t have to worry about this problem.


Something as simple as a new, uplifting coat of paint that makes a room feel more positive, warm, and welcoming can help combat seasonal depression this winter as you work from home. With everything going on in the world, it can be hard to remain optimistic. Simple changes to your environment can help you feel productive, successful, and less sad this season.There are countless reasons to repaint the interior of your home during winter, including the ones listed above, but the best advantage that you’ll get the expert advice from Mrs Paint with the hands on project management.
