  • orlando painters paint before move in Though stressful, buying a new house is an exciting moment for any family. Between exploring your new neighborhood and undertaking a complete decorating overhaul, there are so many things you can do together as a family to help you bond with each other and with your new place. But one big question looms overhead: should you paint your house before you move in, or after you’re settled?

    Truth be told, there are pros and cons to each situation, and the interior painters at Orlando Painting and Drywall have experienced more than you can imagine. Here are some points to consider when choosing your painting date:

    • For the go-getters: paint early. There is a slew of tasks you’ll need to take care of by the time you move in: changing your address, packing your items, hiring a mover, and so on. Many people find that adding painting on to the list makes things easier, especially while you’re in high-speed mode.
    • For the artistic types: paint after. On the other hand, the only way to truly make sure your paint matches your furniture and accessories is to have those items in the house. Lighting can change the way colors look, so even if your paint matches your sofa on a color wheel, you might find different results in your new home. Painting after moving allows you to make the most of your color selections.
    • For any homeowner: consider your unique situation. Of course, no two people will ever have the same moving process – in fact, if you’ve moved multiple times, you probably haven’t had the same process twice yourself. Weigh out what things truly matter to you and let those help you make the decision of whether to paint before or after move-in. While one option may work best for you today, there’s a chance you’ll have to go the other route the next time around.

    It’s easy to get bogged down with the to-do list when it comes to moving tasks. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed during your move, let the interior painters at Orlando Painting and Drywall get the job done for you. We’ll help you along every step of the way, from choosing your colors to the final inspection. To learn more or to schedule your free consultation, call 407-326-9779 today.
