Prevent Interior Paint Fading

Zen Colors

Freshly painted interiors can spruce up your Rhode Island home or office, but this effect wears off over time if the paint fades. If you want to make sure your interior paint keeps its original color as much as possible, there are ways to lower the risk of fading. 

 Use High-Quality Paint

Paint that’s lower in quality has a higher chance of fading earlier rather than later. Using high-quality interior paint means you can expect it to resist fading. Paints that have a higher quality are able to maintain their original tone and sheen longer. If you’re having professional interior painting in Rhode Island done, make sure that the company uses high-quality paint for the job. 

 Apply an Additional Coat

When you have one coat of interior paint on your walls and other surfaces, you can expect it to look faded over time. Applying another coat of paint to these areas of your home or office can help them maintain a more vivid color for a longer amount of time. 

 Choose the Right Sheen

Using interior paint with certain sheens helps reduce the risk of fading in your home or office. You should opt for interior paint that has a satin or semi-gloss sheen, since these are able to reflect more of the sun’s rays. Other sheens, such as matte or flat paints, tend to absorb the sun’s UV rays more, resulting in a faded look.

 Limit Sunlight Exposure

The sun’s UV rays are the main cause of fading interior paint. You can use window treatments, such as blinds, shades or curtains, to control the amount of sunlight that gets into your home or office throughout the day. Plan on closing these when the sun is shining right onto your walls, and your paint should keep its original color and sheen longer.
