Three House Painting Ideas to Beautify Every Chicago Home for the Holidays

Posted by Steve Hester on Friday, November 13, 2015

It's that most wonderful time of year again! Parties, shopping, entertaining and time with loved ones is right around the corner. Is your home ready?

Adding a fresh coat of paint to your home's interior or changing your paint colors can do wonders for the appearance of your home - it's fast and a lot less expensive than buying new furniture. Don't worry, it's human nature to suddenly have a home improvement list longer than Santa's the moment you plan for guests! Here are three home painting ideas to help you prepare for the season with minimal stress and expense.

1. Focus your efforts on painting the rooms where your company will spend most of their time. Consider painting an accent wall in the larger rooms. This will create the same effect and give you painting options in the future.

2. Use a low voc, low odor latex paint wherever possible which will allow that "new paint" smell to dissipate before your guests arrive.

3. Paint your front door. It's the first thing guests see when they arrive and is a huge bang for your buck!

The holidays can be stressful with so many lists to check twice! Adding new paint colors to your home now is well worth the effort. It will allow you and your guests to enjoy the results throughout the season!
