4. It safeguards your furnishings. No matter how carefully you or your contractor work, there is always the chance of a paint spill, or a few stray flecks finding their way onto a prized possession. Painting before bringing in your furnishings keeps these items out of harm’s way.

5. It can simplify interior decorating. Don’t yet have your furnishings? There’s no better way to set the stage for your decor than by adding a fresh color scheme before decorating. Doing so greatly simplifies the selection of new furniture, carpeting, and accents, allowing you to choose just the right tints, tones, and shades to make your new home perfect.

6. It feels good. Adding a coat of paint makes any home seem cleaner, fresher, more welcoming, and best of all, more “yours.”

To keep your paint job looking great, Zimmer recommends the use of top-quality, 100 percent acrylic latex paint; it will produce a more stain-resistant finish that will look new-home fresh for years.
