How often should a house interiour be painted? The worlds your oyster on this one... A house interior can be painted as many times as you would like it to be decorated. I personally decorate my own home every two years throughout the entire interior of property. It's all down to taste

Depending on how much traffic the house gets if it’s a family house with young children you might have to redecorate main areas every 2 years if it’s a quiet home 4-5 years should be sufficient it really all depends on how dirty it gets. You should use scrubbable / washable paint in areas of the house that get used frequently as in stairs and hallway

For your average living room/ lounge or hall stairs and landing then I would say on average between 4-6 years .For bedrooms I would say on average 5-8 years and for kitchens and bathrooms on average I would say every 3-5 years. These figures are based on a water based paint for the woodwork(trim) has oil based paints now tend to discolour within 18-24 months however you will get longer if using an eggshell
