Why You Should Paint Your Home in the Winter


Wednesday, September 28, 2022 2:16 PM


Winter is just around the corner, so unfinished (or not started) exterior home remodeling projects may have to be put on hold. However, rainy winter days can still be productive; they are the ideal time to tackle interior painting projects!

Reasons to Paint Your Home’s Interior During Winter

Painting Projects Are Less Expensive

If you postpone exterior and interior house painting until the summer, you’ll likely spend more money. Painting quotes are competitive in spring and summer, both high-demand seasons for professional painters. Winter can be a slow season for painting businesses, making it a great time for customers looking for fewer services.

Customers often get discounts on peak-season interior paint projects in winter. Additionally, painters will not have to rush to finish the next project, so you may receive more care and attention. If you are a repeat customer, your painters may be able to paint additional rooms at a discount (or free).


In the slower winter months, painting companies have more flexibility, ideal for painting around busy customer schedules. Additional professional painters can be hired during slow seasons if needed, meaning your interior painting project could be completed in less time! In addition, the sun rises earlier in winter, so painters can start working on your project earlier in the day, allowing you to enjoy evenings with your family.


The sun rises earlier during winter, providing ideal lighting for interior painting. However, evening darkness comes more quickly, negatively impacting your mood and keeping you inside for long periods.

Consider adding vibrant color to your walls for a quick fix for winter blues. Invite your friends to a winter cocktail party to celebrate the color refresh and instantly lift your mood!

A Unique Holiday Gift Opportunity

If you want to surprise your loved ones with a grand gesture over the holidays, purchase the gift of interior painting! A color consultation or a signed painting contract is the perfect gift if your partner has been hinting at renovating a room in your home. Your loved one will be delighted when they enter the room with new paint – it’s a gift that keeps on giving.

Maximize Home Value

If you’re considering selling your home, you may want to wait until spring to list your house. Painting your bathroom, kitchen, living area, and bedroom walls will help you attract buyers and sell your home at a higher price. In addition, you will have a competitive advantage if you paint your interior in winter.
