Interior painting is a fast, easy, and budget friendly way to upgrade your home. A fresh coat of paint can completely transform a room or piece of furniture and can add value to your home, which is especially helpful if you’re looking to sell in the near future. Take a break from the hot summer sun and get inspired by these 5 budget friendly summer interior painting ideas.
A bathroom is typically the smallest room in the house, however it’s arguably the most used. That’s why it’s important to ensure your bathroom is up-to-date, functioning, and aesthetically pleasing. Being one of the smaller rooms, a fresh coat of paint isn’t too big of a project. Plus, most of the walls in the bathroom are covered by a shower or vanity, leaving a small amount left to be painted. Take a quick look at our Bathroom Renovation Project Guide for budget, design inspiration and planning ideas.
A simple colour swap has the ability to change the entire appearance and feel of the space. You could even take it a step further by adding a patterned design. Sideway stripes can make a room appear larger than it is. If you have a smaller bathroom, this is a great interior painting design to upgrade your space.
Kitchen Cabinet Renewal
Kitchen cabinets tend to be the centerpiece of the space. Painting your kitchen cabinets is a much cheaper alternative to completely replacing them and can actually give them quite the upgrade. If your cabinets are only surface damaged, this project could even be done DIY style. However, for best results we recommend that you hire a professional, like Five Star Painting Vaughan/Markham and Richmond Hill/Aurora. Don’t be afraid to add a pop of colour to this space. You can consult with a design expert on which colours would best suit your home.

Accent walls are used to draw attention to a particular part of the room. They also add some fun and excitement to a space that may be lacking. If you have some unopened paint leftover from your bathroom makeover or kitchen cabinet painting you can make use of it by adding an accent wall to your laundry room or bedroom. Using the leftover paint not only helps save some money, but it can also tie together the colour scheme of your house. By only painting one wall, this is a quick and easy way to transform your space on a budget.
Bring Old Furniture Back to Life
Just as a fresh coat of paint can transform a room or your cabinets, it can do the same to furniture. From chairs, to wardrobes, to side tables, simply painting these pieces of furniture can give them a new life! Making them appear new or adding a pop of colour to any room, this is a great, low-cost project that can save you from buying new furniture all together.
Chalkboard paint is great for many different reasons. Summertime is busy for everyone and plans start to add up weekend after weekend, plus your kids may be well into their extra-curricular activities. Adding a chalkboard paint calendar to your kitchen area is a great way to keep track of everything! You can make it as big or as small as you want. Having it in a central area for everyone to see makes it easy to make changes to as well, keeping everyone in the loop. Additionally, adding a chalkboard paint wall into your kids play-room is a great way to keep them entertained on those rainy days.
