Grease, spills, steam, and smoke are naturally a result of any good kitchen. To reduce stains and odors, repaint every 4-5 years.
Over time, you’ll see scuff marks, scratches, and dings build up in the hallways. Repaint every 3-4 years to keep your home looking clean and new.
The playroom will probably have to be repainted faster (every few years) than grandma’s guest house. A bedroom rarely used can easily last ten years.
Baseboards, Trim, & Ceilings
Baseboards will see heavy foot traffic and probably need repainting every 3 years. Applying a new coat to your trims can be done at any time. Usually you will repaint a ceiling every 10 years, unless you live in wet and moldy conditions, a smoke prone area, or if you are repainting a room.

It is very unlikely that someone at your local hardware store is looking for just a small project. But most hardware stores have a bulletin board on which local painters post their business cards, web addresses, or phone numbers to advertise their work.
