Will painting over cheap wall paneling lower the value of my home - if done correctly?


Painting dark paneling (if done correctly ) can definitely improve the value of the home. Updating the look of a home never goes out of style. Brown paneling can date a home quickly. Be sure to strip the sheen,prime and paint it in a neutral color ,(your landlord might be more open-minded if she thinks she won't have to re-paint it later). If the house has a cottage feel you could get away without filling the groves. Good Luck
