When Should I Paint During a Move?

While you’re getting ready to move, you’ll be busy coming up with ways to make your new space your own, creating a home for yourself and your family. If you are planning on customizing each room with a coat of paint, the question of whether or not to wait until you are moved in to get started may come up. There are pros for waiting and for getting a head start on your painting project.

Why You Should Paint Before You Move In

Painting before you move into your new home allows you to have a fresh start before the furniture arrives. You won’t need to worry about moving things out of the way and covering everything with tarps: all you’ll need to worry about is protecting the floor. Since there won’t be any furniture in the home yet, you won’t need to worry about tripping and hurting yourself on loose cords or table legs in the way. You’ll also be able to get through the room faster without things getting in your way, allowing a more thorough paint job.

Benefits of Painting After a Move

If you choose to wait to paint until after you move into your new home, you’ll have more time to decide where furniture is going to go and determine what colors will make your home flow from room to room, rather than just winging it. You’ll also be able to better determine how much space you have and how to utilize it to its full capabilities, as well as how the light changes throughout the day and the effect it has on the room.
