I love adding a fresh coat of paint to spaces to give them a refresh. It is a simple project that has such a big impact. But, you may be wondering about the weather. Yes, it is true, we are heading into the colder winter months. But, there are a bunch of reasons why you should paint your room in the winter.

Dries Faster

The top reason you should paint in the winter is that paint dries faster. You might be wondering why, so let’s break it down. In the summer we are hot and sticky from the heat and humidity, not to mention all the fun activities we are doing outside. But in the winter months, the air has much less humidity. The lower humidity in the air actually allows your paint to dry faster.

If you decide to start a painting project, make sure you have good ventilation. Cracking a window will not only help with ventilating your space, but the cooler temperatures will also help dry faster too! If you need any tips to make painting easier, check out this blog post

Better Pricing

Most people tackle painting projects in the warmer months of the year, but did you know that painting projects are cheaper in the winter months? With less people painting, the cost of paint typically goes down which makes your DIY project more affordable. 

If you aren’t quite feeling like painting yourself, it is still cheaper to have your walls painted in the winter. Painting contractors are the busiest doing exterior painting jobs in the summer months so they welcome winter painting jobs. Take advantage of their slow season and get a better rate!  Plus it will be quicker to get scheduled and finished painting.

Refresh the Mood

Who doesn’t love a good refresh? Right? The winter months are full of reasons to refresh our spaces. First off, we have the holidays. It would be so fun to bring in some modern greens to tie in holiday home decor. It would definitely make your home feel more Christmas-y. Or if you aren’t feeling the greens, your could always freshen up your white walls to make everything crisp for holiday guests and parties. 

Aside from the holiday festivities, it is a good idea to refresh your walls with paint to help keep spirits high. Winter blues are a real thing. We are inside more, cooped up which can lead us to go stir crazy. Adding a fresh coat of paint will not only look nice, it will help change things up and break up the constants going on around us. 



If you have any thoughts of selling your house in the spring, you should also try painting your rooms in the winter. The job will be cheaper, you will get to enjoy it before moving, and it will help you be ahead of the game in terms of selling your house. 

Enjoy it more

Let’s face it, during the winter we are indoors most of the time. Which is another reason why to paint different rooms in your house…because you will be able to enjoy it more! All you have to do is get those walls painted and then you can sit back and relax in your new vibe. Summers are busy with outdoor activities so enjoy your time inside with some freshly painted rooms.
