Tips For Painting Multiple Rooms In Your Home


To save money on renovations, many homeowners choose to paint the interior of their homes themselves. What many do not realize is that when you are painting more than one room, there are special considerations that need to be made. If you are painting multiple rooms in your home, here is what you need to know.  

What Is the Room Order for Painting? 

The order in which you paint the rooms in your home is important. While painting a room, it is basically out of commission to you and your family until the paint dries. Therefore, you need to prioritize the order in which you paint each room.  

For instance, painting the bedrooms and bathrooms first is best. Even if the rest of your home is in chaos due to the renovations, having bedrooms and bathrooms that are freshly painted can leave everyone with a sense of calm when they retreat to their personal spaces.  

Your kitchen should be next. By painting this room next, you are freeing it up again for cooking, which gives you and your family access to the kitchen sooner rather than later.  

After that, you can move onto the living room and any bonus rooms you have. The laundry room can be last so you can avoid having clothes that smell like paint in the end. Before painting the room though, take the time to wash the clothes.  

How Can You Connect the Rooms With Your Paint Choices? 

The paint can be used to help create a balanced feel throughout your home. If the colors do not share some connection, the rooms can sometimes feel disjointed, which can take away from the aesthetics of your home.  

There are several ways you can develop a connection between the rooms using color. One is to choose a color or hue that appears in each room. You do not have to paint the walls the same color, but using the color on the baseboards, window frames, or doors can help to create a connection between the rooms.  

You can also use white trim to tie your rooms together. Even if you use a different color for the rooms, the white trim will give the appearance of a connection while still allowing for individuality in each room. If you do opt to use white trim, use the same shade of white in each room. The fine differences between the various shades could potentially stand out if you use a different one in each room. Visit your local paint store for more color coordination ideas.
