In our country there is a different attitude towards painting, it is usually the last thing on people’s mind. However, besides improving the overall look of the house there are 3 other reasons to paint your house on a regular basis.
PAINTS PROTECT THE WALL: The primary purpose of paint is to protect against wear and tear. Its protective nature helps building looks new even if it has been built for ages. Also, materials such as wood and iron last longer when they are repainted often but when they are neglected the former will decay as result of termites operation on it and the latter will rust away as a result of rain and humidity.
HEALTH: A fresh coat of a paint does not only make an area more aesthetically attractive but also improves indoor air quality.
PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF COLOUR: There is so much to benefit from a good combination of colours that brings productivity, happiness and good health. The psychological impact of colour on a painted room cannot be over emphasised. Research has shown that certain colours make human being healthy, happy and productive. Blue for instance promotes sense of relaxation and trust, stimulates the mind and aids in concentration, productivity, communication and efficiency while green creates harmony and balance, inspires innovation, evokes sense of joy and comfort, and reduces anxiety and eyes strains.
Hence, the next time the conversation of renovation crops up, do consider these points before making a choice about painting.
