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.

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.

How A Painter Can Help You Insulate Your Home

What is one of your biggest concerns and costs when it comes to your home? Chances are its keeping the warm air inside in the winter, and the cold air inside in the summer.

Every year those energy bills come in and inch upward, causing you to spend more and more of your paycheck just to heat and cool your home. So when its time to make updates to your home and improve your home’s efficiency, its natural to want to go “green” or find top quality products that will end up saving you in the long run.

How A Painter Can Help You Insulate Your HomeWhen people think of lowering energy bills, they typically will look into replacing windows and doors, or upgrade their heating and cooling system with something more efficient. But there is another way – something that few home owners may have considered. Thermal reflective coatings.

Many homes and buildings built throughout the Denver Metro area contain little or inappropriate insulation. Which means when you’re heating or cooling your home, some of it seeps through the walls, cracks and joints of your home, causing you to continue to turn on the heat/air again and again to maintain an appropriate temperature.

That’s where thermal reflective coatings come into play. This paint like coating has a technology, that when painted on and cured, prevents heat and cold from moving through it. Which means with a simple paint-like process, your home could be warmer almost immediately.

The process isn’t complex – its simply spray painted on. It can adhere to a variety of materials and surfaces – from water heaters and roofing. In most cases it doesn’t need a lot of prep work, primers or surface preparation. And it provides full coverage and sealant on lead containing paint, and can even provide you with a mold resistant barrier.

All while making your home a more efficient place to live.

Give us a call today and discuss how this process can help you conserve energy and save money on your energy bills.

Why A Professional Painter Can Add Value To Your Home

Painting your home is a quick and easy way to add value to your home. Think about it – if you see two houses on the same block, identical to each other in architecture, but one has a poorly painted exterior, while the other has a beautiful exterior – which one would you expect to have the higher price tag?

Why A Professional Painter Can Add Value To Your HomeThe beautifully painted home, of course, is going to have more value than the poorly painted home. And curb appeal sets the basis for everything. A great outside immediately fills you with anticipation for looking at the inside. And a not-so-great outside; well, your worries start before you cross the threshold. You’ll start looking for “problem” the minute you walk through the door.

If you are thinking of selling your home, or you simply want a home that is aesthetically pleasing, painting the exterior is a good idea – as long as you let the professionals handle the job.

In the world of painting, there are three roads you can follow. You can do it yourself, you can hire the cheapest person you can find, or you can look for a quality professional.

Doing it yourself means buying the supplies, picking out the right paint, choosing the right color, prepping the area, painting it and making it look the best it can be – all in your spare time. Don’t have a lot of spare time? Then maybe you can hire the cheapest painter you can find.

The only difference between doing it yourself and the “cheapest” approach is he’ll do the quickest paint job he can with the lowest cost products he can find. And he has one thing you don’t – a lack of concern about the final outcome. Which means your paint job will suffer not only in the long run, but quite likely in the short run too. Which leads us to the truly qualified professional painter.

Professionals do more than just slap a cheap coat of paint on your home’s exterior. They take the time to ensure that the surface is properly prepped, including scraping, power washing, and whatever else is needed to make the paint application look amazing.

Quality painters will help you pick out the best colors for your home to ensure that each color is complimentary and creates the exact look that you want. They will also use only the highest quality of paint, which means you will not have to worry about repainting in a year. Professionals also offer different guarantees and warranties on their work – something you will not find if you hire that “friend of a friend” who needs work.

If you want to add true value to your home, hire a professional to handle your painting needs.

Keeping Your New Paint Job Like New

There’s nothing quite like a fresh paint job to improve the look of your home. Painting your house is a big task, and it can be a major investment of money and time whether or not you hire a professional or painted it yourself. After the paint job is finished, it is wise to protect it to extend its life.

Keeping Your New Paint Job Like NewEven though fresh paint feels dry to the touch, it actually takes weeks for it to dry. Many homeowners make the mistake of thinking that the paint is dry when it is still very wet. You must have patience, and once it is fully dry, you should maintain and protect it. Consider the following tips:

Interior paint maintenance tips

  • Avoid fading paint. Be sure to use a high-quality paint and there shouldn’t be a problem in fading, even in bright sunlight. Or, fight fading paint by blocking incoming sunlight with shades or curtains.
  • Treat stains and spots immediately. Stains will happen, and treating them right away will ensure easy removal. You can wash spots with water and a damp sponge.
  • Watch out for mold. For warm, humid rooms like the bathroom and basement, there are special paints available that prevent the emergence and growth of mold.

Exterior paint maintenance tips

  • Pressure wash.  You should pressure wash the exterior of your home about every five years, especially if there is mildew present.
  • Inspect for mold and mildew. Look out for these as well as excess dirt from weather conditions.
  • Avoid the use of TSP. You shouldn’t use tri-sodium phosphate for maintenance cleaning, as this chemical has a tendency to de-gloss the paint.

Keep your paint job looking beautiful by properly caring for the interior and exterior of your home. You will protect your investment and have a beautiful looking house for years to come!

Using Color To Paint Your Small Rooms

If you have a small home with small rooms, you have to think outside of the box when it comes to interior design. With the right color combinations, you can actually make the small rooms appear larger.

Using Color To Paint Your Small RoomsUnlike the popular opinion, you do not have to stick with white to make a space appear larger. Instead, you simply have to utilize the right colors and décor to bring your small spaces to life.

When choosing colors, make sure it appeals to your personal tastes. Your home should be a place in which you feel comfortable, so use colors you love.

· Choose sharp colors instead of dull, muted colors.

· Use contrasting colors here and there for visual “pop.”

· You can also make a focal wall – a wall that is one contrasting color to the rest of the walls in a room. This can help give your small rooms some depth.

Use different shades of the same color to maintain continuity between connecting rooms. You can add accent colors in different shades on the wall or use accent items, such as throw pillows, to help each room flow together. Consult with a professional paint consultant like Paint Denver.

When decorating your kitchen and bathroom, never be afraid of colors. Jazz up the walls of your kitchen with eclectic items in sassy colors. Take a risk in your bathroom with a bold, vibrant color, rather than the traditional soft, muted colors.

If you are leery of adding too much color in a permanent fashion, such as with paint, choose items of bright colors to create the desired effect. You can easily hang colorful paintings to bring color to a room or add a simple, colorful border at the top of a wall. Best of all, if and when you move, you can take these colorful items with you.

Finally, just be bold – do not be afraid to experiment with different colors until you find the palette that is perfect for you!
