Repainting your house is a big job that makes a huge visual impact. But how often should you repaint your house interior? It depends on the room. Some rooms need to be repainted more often than others due to frequent use. On the other hand, rooms that aren’t used regularly might not need a new coat of paint. No matter how many rooms you need to repaint, you can trust Pizzazz Painting for interior painting in South Jersey.

Living and Dining Room

The dining room is generally one of the least-used rooms in the house. Many people only use their dining rooms for formal events or holidays a few times a year. If that is the case with your dining room, then your paint sees very little wear and tear, which means that it can last longer. You can get by with repainting it once every 7 years.

Although you probably use your living room more than your dining room, it may not need frequent repainting either. Most people use living rooms for low-stress activities like relaxing, socializing, and watching TV, none of which can wear out your paint very quickly. That’s why if you don’t have kids, you can go about 6 or 7 years without needing to repaint your living room. Rambunctious children may cause more wear on your walls, which may mean that you’ll need to paint more often.


Although bedrooms are typically used more often than living and dining rooms, they don’t see much more detrition. Adult bedrooms typically don’t put too much wear on their paint, so they can last a long time. The exception is children’s bedrooms. Kids often use their rooms for both sleeping and playing, which means that their paint can quickly get scuffed up. Hence, adult bedrooms typically must be repainted every 5-10 years, whereas kids’ rooms might need a fresh coat more frequently, such as every 4 years.


Your kitchen is one of the most-used rooms in your house, which means that it needs repainting more often. You use your kitchen every day for preparing and eating your food, and there is often exposure to water from your sink and dishwasher. So, there is plenty of activity in this room on a regular basis. Paint can wear out quickly under all that stress and frequent cleaning, which is why you should repaint your kitchen every 3 years.


Like the kitchen, your bathroom is used every day and is subject to lots of wear and tear. Think about all the water and steam that gets splashed against your bathroom walls every day. Whether you’re washing your hands or taking a shower, condensation can seriously wear out the paint in this room. To keep your bathroom walls in the best shape, they should be repainted every 3-4 years.


Your ceiling has some of the most durable and long-lasting paint in your house. Your ceiling could see some abrasion over the years in the form of exposure to heat and condensation, moisture and daily wear and tear. However, you can expect the paint on your ceiling to last about 10 years before it needs a fresh coat.
