Winter Hues to Beat The Blues
Ottawa Painting Companies Recommend Interior Painting Over the Winter Months
February's here, bringing more snow, more slush, and gray clouds. We could all use a splash of colour in our lives!
Ottawa painting companies have just the solution for the winter blues: put a fresh coat of paint on your walls!
You’ve probably got a few doubts about interior house painting in the winter months. That’s totally fair! It might not seem like an obvious match at first, but there are a few great reasons why you should consider getting your interior painting project done when the temperatures start to drop.
Beat Cabin Fever
Cabin fever is all too common in mid-January. It’s either too cold or too wet to enjoy winter weather, or you’re waiting for the next snowfall to get out and hit the slopes. Painting is a project that can make you feel active and engaged. After all, there’s only so much time you can spend watching TV before you get antsy.
Painting will help keep you focused and can let you tackle spring decorating or cleaning a bit earlier than usual. By the end of your painting project, you’ll be ready to sit back and relax—and it’ll feel even better knowing you’re enjoying a job well done.
Paint Sets Better in Winter
It is important to let a room ventilate while it’s being painted. Before you start worrying about catching a chill, you should know that many paints these days are low-odour. You just have to crack a window a little to provide some extra ventilation.
Dry, crisp winter air can help paint set and dry faster (and better) than in humid summers. Just be sure you’re avoiding damp winter days—the moisture in the air can mess up what would be an otherwise beautiful paint job.
Better Painting Company Availability
Because interior painting seems like a strictly summer job, many homeowners don’t think to hire painters during the winter months. This means they’ll have greater flexibility in their hours, making them more available for your schedule.
Snow and sleet won’t stop painting companies in Ottawa from taking on indoor projects. Many painters are more than happy to take on a project anytime throughout winter. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean they’ll close shop and hibernate for the winter.
So, if you’re feeling cooped up and more than a little confined, consider adding a splash of colour to your home’s interior this winter. It will keep your mind and your hands busy.
