Everything you must Know Before you Decide on Painting your Home

When initially planning to paint the interiors of your home, it is tempting to go doing it yourself. However, there are several considerations that you may not have thought of, such as how often you should repaint your home, the preparations needed before the actual painting, the common problems you want to avoid and the right professional to hire for the painting job.

Here, we will help you answer those questions and shed light to what seem to be a dauntless job for every homeowner.

How Often Should You Repaint Your Home?

Unfortunately, there is no one fix answer for this, since every house (even every room) is different. A good rule of thumb, however, is to notice signs of deterioration. If you see any of the following signs, it is obviously time to repaint.

  • Flaking, Cracking or Bubbling
  • Fading Paint
  • Hardened Caulk
  • Morphed Paint Colour
  • Patching Stucco
Preparations Before Painting Your Home

Before the painting service crew starts painting your home’s interior walls, there a few things that need to be done to ensure smooth application and long-lasting effect of the painting job. Here are three of the most important ones:


This is probably the most underrated and sometimes neglected part of any paint job. Bear in mind that cracks and fading of paint can still be visible even when underneath a new coat. Coating even a slightly unclean surface will just waste your time and effort, since you can’t really expect it to look good and last long. Painting service providers, like Ideal Colours, conduct pre-cleaning process, which includes removal of old paint and using high pressure cleaner to even out and clean any surface. So, if you have access to a local painting service expert, call them now.

Filling Holes and Cracks

This is important if you are painting a cracked surface or surfaces that has been drilled with holes is uneven or in bad condition. These surfaces will need some fillers to fill in the gaps and create a consistent surface for even paint application.

Sanding and Priming

Even a fairly smooth surface is worth giving a light scrubbing. This creates a balance on the surface, so the paint brush glides smoothly along it. Also, priming is equally important for all paint jobs, and even more so if you are painting walls with a new colour. Some surfaces, like timber for example, provides an adhesion level required for the paint to spread evenly. Skip the priming, and you’ll run the risk of patchy and unsightly finish.

What Type of Colour Combinations Suits You
  • Deep Green and Brown

    Get that rich hunter green look for your home. From muted to moody shades, these painting colors work to emulate the look and feel of lush botanicals and the relaxing atmosphere of nature in your home.

  • Gold and Cream

    A subtle step up from basic beige, this sunshine-inspired palette is warm and comforting to the eye. Stick to golden tones, rather than lemony tones, which can look intense. With a room painted in closely related shades, you create an enveloping atmosphere.

  • Berries and Burgundy

    Darker hues offer intense look. And because they can easily get overpowering, they should be handled tastefully. Red is a strong colour, so it’s important to pair it with the right colours. Take note that it can cause trouble with white and yellow. You can tame it down by pairing it with deeper red and a dark ceiling. The effect can be dramatic, but since its low-contrast the aesthetic look calms down.

  • Gray and Cream

    Think of an updated 70s look—grays, mousy browns and rust-like colours, thanks to the modern appreciation for natural yet moody. Moreover, this interior paint combo is gender neutral, classic and unique to have guests complement your home.

Which Brand of Paint to Go for

In Singapore, there are quite a few of paint brands to choose from. However, we have two of the most used and preferred by painting contractors and property owners—Nippon Paint and ICI Dulux. So, which one is better and more suitable for you? Here’s a breakdown of what each brand can offer.

Nippon Paint

Nippon is an excellent choice for both interior and exterior wall paint for many reasons:

  • Eco-Friendly. Paints are often accused for being environmentally degrading, but thankfully this brand manufactures odourless wall paint products minus the degrading compounds that are damaging to the o-zone layer.

  • Temperature Regulating. Singapore can get really hot in summer, making people uncomfortable. However, as simple as coating your home walls with Nippon paint is enough to lower temperatures, especially during extremely hot days.

  • Durable. Nippon paints are known to be very reliable, and stay smooth without unsightly wear. It is especially formulated to withstand harsh conditions and to adhere completely to the surface for a smooth, long-lasting finish.

  • Cost-Effective. Especially for those working on a budget, Nippon paints are the way to go. Due to its thin consistency, it is easy to apply, covers more area and saves money that could’ve been used to buy more cans of paint.

  • Fast-Drying. With it’s fast-drying technology, you can settle in quickly to your new hdb flat and reduce chances of getting paint onto your furniture and clothes.

Dulux Paint

Another popular paint brand in Singapore is Dulux, owing it to their availability and quality.

  • Eco-Friendly. Dulux paints are eco-friendly and free from harsh ingredients like lead and mercury.

  • Anti-Bac Properties. This brand also boasts antibacterial properties, which make the resistant to fungus and mold.

  • Easy Stain Removal. Unlike other brands, walls painted with Dulux paints can easily be cleaned from stains, which helps preserve the vivid colour of the wall.

  • Withstand Harsh Weather. For the best external use, Dulux tops the list. Dulux’s exterior paints can endure the harshest of climates while still preserving the colour and texture of the paint.

Overall, the two brands compete closely with each another. If you are looking for a high-quality interior paint, with vivid colours and offers a myriad of paint type options, go for Nippon. On the other hand, for exterior home painting that can withstand the test of time (and weather), we recommend Dulux Paint. But nevertheless, the two brands offer high-quality interior and exterior paints for very reasonable prices.

Interior and Exterior Painting – Are They Interchangeable?

In most cases, paints are pretty similar. While there are water- and oil-based paints, all paints comprise of resin, pigment and solvent. However, there are differences in the kinds of paints that are more suitable for application on certain surfaces.

So, what about interior and exterior paints? Are there major differences between the two? Can I paint my house in whichever type of paint I want? Are they okay to interchange?

Different Environments

Exterior and interior paints are used under different environments. Paint for outside the house needs to withstand storms, strong winds and extremely hot weather, compared to interior paint, which is not exposed to these weather conditions. Similarly, texture and color imperfections with interior paint are unsightly and more noticeable; therefore, interior paint should be easy to maintain and clean.

Choice of Resin

In terms of the component, the difference between exterior and interior paints is the choice of resin used. Resin is the organic substance that makes the pigment of the paint stick to the surface. A softer resin is more suitable for exterior paint because it gives the paint a richer colour even if the underneath surface is expanding (or shrinking) due to extreme heat (or cold). More concentrated resin is more appropriate for interior paint.

Is It Okay to Interchange the Use of Interior and Exterior Paint?

The obvious answer is no. You probably think that exterior paints would also do great for your home’s interior, but this is not always the case. In fact, paints specifically made for home exterior can easily get scratched, something that is not as easy to notice when it is on the outside walls of your home. There is also another thing that exterior paints tend to release possibly toxic compounds (VOCs). When used as indoor paints, this can be dangerous and may trigger certain allergies.

Factors to Consider When Painting a New Home

Painting a new home is a tedious task. It is important to make informed decisions, so you are free of any tensions for the next five (or more) years. Plan every step with caution to get the best professional paint results. It is highly recommended to hire a professional to do the paint job, and take these considerations in mind when planning to paint a new home.

Prepping Your Home

Preparation is the key to ensuring that the paint will look its best. Make sure that the surfaces to be painted are given thorough clean up. Mildew, dust and dirt that has accumulated over time should be removed before the painting process begins.

Reliable Painting Services Company

DIY may cut it, but a professional painting company with years of experience guarantees flawless work that will last longer. When looking for one, make sure to ask how long they have been in the industry. Also, find out whether the company hires painters for every project, or they have their own team of painters. The reputation and reliability of a company can be easily determined by their license and insurance.


Check out the cost of the painting project and find out with a reliable painter whether you need to buy your own paints or they can provide all the necessary tools and products for you. The cost depends on several factors—the scope of the project, areas to the painted and the type of paint to be used on your home.

Choosing the Color

Color makes a huge difference to the look of your home. Many hdb painting services companies provide free consultation and advices about the colour schemes that will suit your home. In addition, you need to make sure that the paints are of great quality. Investing on a reputable company and spending a bit more initially on high-quality products can go a long way.

5 Common Wall and Ceiling Paint Issues
  • Blistering

    Do you notice small blisters or bubbles under a coat of paint? If you can, then it’s probably that your paint job is blistering. This is usually caused when paint is applied on dirty, damp or hot surface. To avoid this, avoid painting under imperfect surfaces and make sure to do the necessary preparation before moving onto the painting process.

  • Yellowing

    Places free of sunlight, such as inside closets and behind hung picture frames. To prevent yellowing, using top-quality acrylic paints helps. Avoid alkyd paints in areas with poor lighting condition as they tend to turn yellow in constant low light.

  • Mud Cracking

    This refers to the irregular and thick cracks in the paint film with the appearance likened to a cracking dried out mud. This is due to the thick application of paint to cover up a porous surface. Again, using quality paint and evening out the surface before coating is the key to ensure that your paint won’t crack over time.

  • Chalking

    Chalking commonly happens to cheap paints, which contains high amounts of pigment extenders or are overly thinned-out. Paint ceiling and other areas of your home by starting off with adequate preparation and using high-quality latex paint to avoid such problem.

  • Mildew

    This often happens to areas that are constantly in contact with moisture, such as bathroom walls. This one is easy to remedy with the help of your regular household bleach and detergent.

The Key Considerations When Looking for a Home Painter
Research—a Lot!

Perhaps, you already heard of a few names that has been recommended to you. To know whether they are an experienced team or not, do your homework. Find out if a company has the required licenses, certifications and insurance policies to support their work. Also, check if there are any complaints filed against the service provider. The more information you know, the better.

Your Quote is Your Contract

Ask for a quote that states every specific work that the company will provide you. Therefore, this should include things like what should be painted, how will the preparation take place, what products will be used and how long it will take to complete the project.

High Price Doesn’t Always Mean Excellent Work

When choosing a home painting expert, do not base your decision to the price alone. Getting the most expensive pro doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get an excellent job. Likewise, you also don’t want to pick the company that provides the lowest estimate. Look for someone that can provide you an accurate and honest estimation—the one that gives the most reasonable quotation.

Why You Should Hire a Professional Residential Painter?

Hiring a professional contractor for your commercial painting works may take time, but your effort will surely be all worth it. The quality workmanship, expertise and professional services of these companies is crucial and will play a massive part in the value and aesthetic look of your home.
