How Long Will a Professionally Painted Interior Last?

How Long Will a Professionally Painted Interior Last?

Adding a fresh coat of paint to a room will transform any living space. However, the longevity of the paint depends on many factors.  

Quality paint, such as Sherwin-Williams, will provide more durability and better adhesion. For pros, it’s easier to apply. For homeowners, two coats of high-quality paint will extend the life of your painted walls.  

The color of paint impacts the longevity of a professional paint project. Bold, vibrant colors often go out of style while neutral whites and grays are more timeless. 

Bedrooms will last 10-12 years as they are not used in the same fashion as higher-traffic areas such as a kitchen, living room, or bathroom. However, young artists, especially those with markers and crayons, may shorten that lifespan. 😊  

Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and as a result, is often the most used room in a house. On average, most kitchen paint on walls, ceilings, and cabinets will last about 8-10 years.  

Steam and moisture in bathrooms can break down paint quicker than in other rooms. The paint will thin over time and become duller in 3-5 years with moderate to normal everyday use.  

Living Room 
Living rooms are often high-traffic areas, but you should be able to get 8-10 of life from a professionally painted living room. Although, this is a popular room to update more frequently to keep up with style and décor changes within the home.
