How often do you paint the roms in your house. We have been planning on it for a few years, but haven't yet gotten around to doing it and we have lived here 5 years almost. We have the colors picked out and hopefully will be able to get it don't finally this summer. The kids rooms and our room are all white and we want to get them painted soon. It is just tough to move everything around to get it done since there is not a lot of space to put stuff while we paint

 We have lived in our house almost 18 yrs now.   We have painted the whole house 2 times now.

We moved into our house 3 1/2 years ago and everything was newly painted when we moved in.  I feel like some of the rooms needs to be painted again soon.

I've lived here 3 years and have only painted one room. We will be starting to decorate a lot more this summer.

Repaint, every few years.

Touch up? All the time.

 Lol, that may be how we are. We are horrible about it. We have so many other projects that we need to do first. The kids need new carpetting too, of course once we do it it would make sense to paint too since everything would ave to be pulled out anyway

It really depends on how much I like a room. I try to decorate a room so that I don't have to paint it again for a long time. We just moved into our first home that we have bought so I may paint more often because I enjoy decorating.

We just bought this house almost 2 yrs ago and it already had a fresh coat of paint. Might be a while before painting any walls.

 We did a remodel 11 years ago, time for some updating.  I re-painted all of the downstairs rooms except for the DR about 5 years later. Did alot of touch ups with no problems of the left over paint matching. Repainted the kitchen and down stairs bathroom a year later. The FR addition was painted a little over 2 years ago and last year we had the ceilings and walls painted in the kitchen, DR and front LR. Every 5 years is average.

Once we move I have a feeling I'll be back in the painting game.
