Tips

Low Lighting Challenge

Challenge: Do you have a room that doesn’t get much natural light?

Do you want to make it look brighter? Choosing to have this room painted in a light color could be the best option. On the flip side, a dark, rich color could give the room a feeling of warmth and elegance.

Historically Accurate Color Scheme

Are you planning to have your older home painted?

It’s recommended that you use a historically accurate color scheme. There are many historic color charts available online so that you can select shades that might have been used at the time your home was built.

Curb Appeal Starts Here

Don’t neglect the exterior.

While you may have a natural green thumb that allows you to keep your lawn and garden in professional shape, your home’s aging exterior could be detracting from all your hard work. When you need to ensure your home is just as lovely as its surroundings, power wash the exterior surfaces or go with a fresh coat of paint.

Get Your Zen On

Setting the mood with color.

If you are looking for a color for a bathroom, a green hue is often an excellent choice for this smaller space. A peaceful shade of green has the ability to evoke a sense of calm, transforming your bath into a quiet retreat away from the world.

Surface Preparation is the Key to Great Results

Why is it so important to prepare your house before painting the exterior?

Paint won’t adhere to dirt or loose, flaking paint. A professional painter has the tools and experience to make sure the preparation work is done properly.

Odd Shaped Room Challenge

Challenge: Do you have a long and narrow room?

Consider painting the end walls a darker shade than the long, narrow walls. The darker colors will recede and create an illusion of width in the room, while the lighter color will advance.

DIY vs Professional

Have you been hesitant to hire professional painters because you don’t want to spend the money when you could do it yourself?

Remember, after buying all the paint and supplies, you may find that you don’t save as much cash as you thought you would.

DIY painting projects rarely go as smoothly as you thought they would when you started. If you don’t want that Friday afternoon painting project to turn into an all-weekend ordeal, you may want to use a professional.

Protection from the Elements

How often should I paint the exterior of my home?

The frequency of exterior painting depends on a number of factors, one of which is exposure to sunlight. Sides of your home that receive the greatest amount of sun – especially during the hottest times of the day – are more likely to need repainting than the other sides. Fresh paint not only provides a pleasing appearance, but it protection against sun and weather.
