Why are your home’s paint colours getting so much worse?

The average paint job in the UK is getting so dirty, it’s almost like it’s not a work of art anymore, according to an independent survey.

According to the report, commissioned by the National Painting Institute (NPI), around a quarter of UK households are using more than half their paint at home, with a quarter going over 100%.

The paint used to paint the front of your house is so dirty that you could just as easily paint the back, it found. 

“It’s the worst paint job I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Paul Bower, a senior paint technician at NPI. 

He added: “This paints the house a lot more like a giant piece of shite. 

The paint in the front is actually very dull and it doesn’t look very good.” 

And the paint in your front door? 

It looks pretty awful too, with paint that is as dirty as it is smelly, and the back is far from being pristine. 

A paint expert told Business Insider that a paint primer in your garage could be an expensive investment if you have a large paint collection, but it’s also a very cheap way to get your paint back on track.

“There are different types of paint that you can use, so it depends on what kind of paint you have, and how old you have it,” he said.

“The old paint that I have, it is really good quality and it is easy to work with, and it works well with paint like the paint that we use in our bathrooms.” 

The NPI survey found that while the average household spent £832 a year on their paint, it was only £6 per day spent on it.

“A paint primer could be worth it if you’ve got a big collection, like I have a big painting collection,” said Bower.

“If you have to buy new paint every couple of years, then you are going to have to spend a lot on it, and you are not going to get it back on the road as easily.”

If you do decide to paint your home yourself, you may find that you have an even harder time. 

You might have to go out of your way to find the freshest paint to use. 

It might be worth a bit of money to buy a paint brush or some paint stripper, but if you don’t know how to do that you might just end up with a mess. 

Paint brushes and strippers are expensive, and if you’re not a painter then you can spend hours and hours looking for the right colours. 

If you find the cheapest paints you can, you might be able to get away with less than half that. 

But there are plenty of cheaper options out there, and a quick search for “paint brushes” or “strippers” online will reveal a range of products. 

According to one online paint retailer, the cheapest option is paint strippers that come in at just £6.99. 

However, if you can find a cheaper paint stripping kit, you can get a decent paint job at half the price.
