How to Choose the Best Wall Color to Display Artwork

Do you have a favorite piece of artwork that you want to display, but don’t know how to give it the backdrop it deserves? Take into account the following tips on how to paint a feature wall that is as beautiful as your art.

Add an Accent Wall 

When deciding on wall paint colors for rooms, you must take the artwork and furniture into account. Decide on a color palette for your room and determine how you will integrate accent colors into various features. Take this bedroom for example. The bold black wall immediately draws attention but is then softened by the white, grey and gold of the large pieces of art and bed in front of it.

Consider the Art

Is the artwork a bold and bright abstract piece, or a soft and airy watercolor? The tone and mood of the artwork should guide your choice of paint for the wall behind it. For example, the simple monochromatic scheme of these wall hangings is upheld perfectly by the crisp white wall. Imagine if these same images were hanging on a blue or even gray background. The simplicity and cleanliness of the style would be lost.

Consider the Room 

Darker colored walls can help a room appear more “warm and cozy”. This is especially common in dining rooms and bedrooms. If you decide to use a darker colored wall, it is suggested that you put similarly colored artwork on it, as demonstrated I this image. This not only adds personality to a room that can otherwise be quite boring, but also introduces more colors to add in various accents throughout the room. This goes back to creating a cohesive color palate as previously discussed.

Choose Flat Paint

When given the option for paint sheen on a wall behind artwork, it is almost always best to opt for a plat faint that only reflects color, not light. This will allow the art to be the star of the show instead of a shiny background wall. Flat paint also masks dings, scratches and fingerprints better than its sheen counterparts, so you’ll be cleaning and fixing bumps and bruises less often.

Remember, it is possible to go overboard with wall colors so everything in moderation. Think of the wall as more of the supporting actor to the real star, the artwork.

How to Find a Quality House Painting Contractor

When it comes to painting your home, it’s best to hire a professional rather than try to do it yourself. While it may seem like a lot of work to vet each potential company, it will be completely worth it in the end when your house looks beautiful with a fresh coat of paint. There are many painting contractors in Denver, so we’ve listed a few key points that you should keep in mind when deciding which one to give your business to.

Shop Around

When looking for a house painting contractor, it’s best to shop around and talk to a few companies before making a decision. There are multiple things to look for in a house painting contractor, so make sure you inquire about each of the following to get a proper understanding of their work.

Inquire About Experience

No one wants their home to be the trial run for a contractor’s first job. When deciding on a house painting company, make sure to inquire about their previous experience and get some references, if possible. Check out their previous work for yourself and ensure it is up to your standards before moving forward.

Check out the Reviews

Any good house painting contractor that has been in the business a while will have at least some reviews online from previous clients. If they don’t, that’s not a good sign and you should probably avoid pursuing that company further. When it comes to the actual reviews, be sure to read them and not just look at the number of stars. The reviews themselves contain valuable information and insights from real customers that you may not have been able to gather from simply researching the company yourself.

Keep Cost in Mind

While cost is naturally a concern, getting the lowest possible price should not be your main priority. Sure, it should be a large consideration, but getting someone with skill and expertise is much more important than going with the contractor with the lowest bid. Keep in mind that better and more qualified house painting contractors will probably charge more for their services, but it is always recommended to go with someone who is properly insured and experienced rather than an individual looking to make some extra cash on the side.

By keeping these things in mind while searching for a Denver house painting contractor, you can easily find someone that will do a quality job. Contact us to get a free estimate today and see why we’re a trusted contractor for house painting in Denver.

Professional Painter Can Remodel Your Kitchen On A Budget

What room is the biggest eyesore in your home? If you said your kitchen, this may be the year you do something about it.

You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to update it and give it a fresh, new look. In fact, if you talk with your professional painter first, you may be amazed at how modern and clean your kitchen can be without taking out another loan for a complete remodel.

Paint The WallsProfessional Painter Can Remodel Your Kitchen On A Budget

Start with a fresh coat of paint in a vibrant, modern color. People stay neutral because they are afraid of color. Yet color can be a great thing when modernizing the look and feel of your kitchen. Head online and look at kitchen remodeling sites to get a good idea of what look you are going for. Browse through magazines and create a folder with your favorites. This will help your painter understand what colors to suggest and to help you choose from.

Drying Times For Interior Latex Paint

Paint The Cabinets

If your kitchen cabinets are still in good shape, just looking a little tired and worn, or perhaps a color or stain right out of the 1980s, a fresh coat of paint can bring them into the current century. Today’s kitchens incorporate color and woods for a design unique to your home. Again, turn to home magazines or online resources for inspiration. Then let your professional painter do their magic.

Painting cabinets is not the same as painting a wall. You need deglossing primers to maintain the paint application. Use proper paints to make sure your cabinets are easy to clean and maintain, taking the abuse of daily use. Make sure you paint the entire cabinet, inside and out for a professional look.

Painted vs Stained Kitchen Cabinets – How Do You Decide?

You can also do little things to add a modern look. If you have recessed panel doors, remove the center panel and insert glass to open the cabinets up. Install new hardware to compliment your theme. Then have fun with other details to bring out the color – how about a glass backsplash to complement the look?

Paint The Countertops

If you’re tired of the old laminate countertops, give them a fresh coat of paint as well. Again, you won’t use regular wall paint for the process, countertops require special paints and sealers to ensure you will be able to use the countertops for normal kitchen functions. By working with a professional, you can choose a variety of color combinations, even have the final look resemble the granite you’ve long desired.

For a fraction of the cost, a little bit of paint and a professional painter is all you’ll need to update your kitchen, and have the room you’ve long desired.

Planning For A Professional Painting Job At Your Commercial Location

Whether your facility is a school, a church, an office building, an apartment building, or a retail location, every maintenance project you face presents its own unique challenges.

If you are planning for a professional paint job in the near future, whether exterior or interior, the more you plan out the logistics before the job, the smoother the project will operate along the way.

Start by working with the occupantsPlanning For A Professional Painting Job At Your Commercial Location

While everyone loves a fresh, clean look, if it inconveniences someone during their busiest time, they may be anything but happy with the results. Start by talking to the occupants first about upcoming events. If it’s a retail location, do they have a large sale in the works? If its an office building, do the tenants have special needs in the coming weeks or months? By asking and getting a consensus first, you will be better able to plan for a time that will provide the least amount of disturbances.

Schedule during quiet hours

If your goal is to paint the interior, scheduling the paint job after working hours and on weekends will cause the least amount of disturbances to the tenants of the building. Likewise with the exterior, if you coordinate starting and stopping times to vary from peak arrival hours of the tenants, the job can run smoother and with fewer disturbances. Above all, keep your tenants informed of the process so they will be more forgiving of the process, knowing the outcome will benefit them as well.

Pick neutral colors

Usually a commercial facility comes pre-established with colors in place. Because most tenants select their furnishings based around the color combination – grays or browns for instance – its wise to stick with the same color pallet overall. That doesn’t mean you can’t go a shade or two lighter or darker, making the look and feel more modern. Yet remember commercial locations are usually meant to blend in and sooth, rather than make a bold statement. Unless you are working directly with the occupant who has a special request, neutral will stand the test of time every time.

Why You Should Only Use A Painting Company That Chooses Low VOC Paint

Thinking of hiring a painting company for your next home improvement project? There are many things to consider as you make your final selection. Professionalism. References. All of this matters when choosing a painting company.

But there may be one thing more that you’ve never considered before.

What type of paint do they use?Why You Should Only Use A Painting Company That Chooses Low VOC Paint

Professional painting companies select and use all kinds of paint. Some choose their paints based on performance. Some based on color. But what about overall impact of the paint?

Paint contains three different types of chemicals: binders, solvents and pigments. The binders provide the ability to adhere to the surface you are painting. The solvents keep the paint liquid until its applied. And the pigments give the paint the color you desire.

Though all types of paints contain these three chemicals, not all paints are the same. In some cases, the paint manufacturer concerns itself more with profits and output rather that what goes in the paint. In which case the paint will contain more of the dangerous chemicals we are now finding out affect us in a variety of ways. These paints will contain higher concentrations of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which can harm us in a variety of ways.

Health Problems

Most VOCs are found in the solvents. Solvents are the part of the paint that keep it liquid for application and allow it to dry quickly once its applied. When paint is applied to the interior of your space, the VOCs will become a part of your indoor air quality as this process takes place. Which means it can contaminate that air not just for the short term, but in some cases for extended periods of time. Yes, that fresh paint smell might not be so good after all. VOCs have been known to cause a variety of health concerns, including respiratory problems. Low VOC paints use alternative solvents, often water based, which means they have lower concentrations of toxic chemicals. By choosing a company that uses low VOCs, you are safeguarding the health of your family or your employees.

Environmental Problems

Painting the exterior of your home or building still has its own repercussions. Depending on the size of your structure, the paint you use will still off-gas during the drying process. High VOCs will enter our environment during the painting process and often for years to come. We also face many environmental problems when paints are disposed of improperly. Imagine paint buckets with high VOCs continually contaminating both the air and water supplies as it sits leaking in a landfill.

Now that we are aware of the potential problems and damage high VOCs cause our world, why choose a paint company that uses anything but low VOC paint? If you hire us, you’ll be hiring a company that always chooses the lowest VOC paints, and cares equally about the footprint we leave in our environment.
