A Modern Update For An Open Concept House
The new owner of this home loved the layout and design of the house, but did not like the golden colour. It was too traditional looking for her modern furnishings. We were able to complete update the look by painting the walls a mid-tone grey colour.
The new look is dramatically different. The homeowner was excited to set up her furniture and decor items in a space that now complimented them.
The colour used was Sherwin Williams Repose Gray. It has a slight blue undertone. It’s a great colour for a fresh updated look.
The owner called us back on a second occasion to paint several more rooms in the house. The powder room was in fairly good shape and the owner was happy with the current colour so we were able to freshen it up with one coat of paint.
The rec room was one of rooms that still had the orginal gold colour leftover from the previous owner. We painted it out with the same grey we used throughout the main living space of the house.
The new colour instantly updates the space.
The little girl’s room had a few issues from the previous paint job. We were able to do some fix ups and apply a coat of the blue colour.
The den had a combination of gold and burgandy walls that made it feel quite dark.
The grey colour works a lot better in the space.
The ensuite also went from gold to grey.
Nanaimo Two Storey Home Renovation
The owners purchased this home in the North end of Nanaimo due to it’s beautiful views. They did a major remodeling of the interior that included new flooring as well as doors and trim work throughout. The bathrooms and kitchen were completely redone.
This is one of many homes they have renovated over the years and they continue to use a tried and true colour palette that they like. The walls are a butter pecan colour and the trim work and doors are tinted to white with a slight yellow undertone. The owner later had us do some exterior painting on the house.
The young girls bedroom was painted in a soft pink.
Repaint of Nanaimo Home Prior To New Owners Moving In
The new owners of this home had a small window of time to do some improvements prior to moving in. There wasn’t enough time for us to do a full paint job so they picked the areas that were most important to them. We painted the livingroom/dining room area, the the kitchen, hallway and stairwell. They decided to have just the walls painted and forego the trim work. The had us paint with a light beige colour that has slight yellow undertone. It’s a pleasant neutral colour that works well in a variety of spaces. It’s called Mere Mortal CLW 1011W from General Paint.
Colour Change Of A New Townhouse
After purchasing this new townhouse the owners wanted to have the wall colour changed throughout the main living area, stairwell, entry and hallways. The darker wall colour was not going to work well for displaying their large collection of artwork.
They also wanted a colour that would keep the space light and airy. Another townhouse will be built on the other side of them which will block out some of their natural light. They chose a creamy white. There’s enough warmth in the colour so that it doesn’t look too stark. It will serve as the perfect backdrop for their artwork. Now they can start to hang it and feel like they have fully moved in.
Jack helped hang their first piece. A stunning kimomo in a vibrant orange colour. It looks perfect on the tall staircase wall.
Nanaimo Townhouse Rental Property Repaint
This townhouse was a rental property for a number of years and therefore the walls were pretty beat up with marks and dings. The new owners also purchased it as an investment property. They wanted to have it cleaned up before new tenants moved in. We spent a great deal of time patching the walls and re-pained them in a a colour called Shaker Beige. It’s a good choice for a rental property. It’s an attractive colour and neutral enough that it can work with a variety of furnishings and decor.
Sidney House Painting In Preparation For Selling
We were hired by some former clients in Nanaimo to paint a house in Sidney as part of an update to get it ready to sell. The kitchen and bathrooms have already had some updates and more flooring and lighting will be changed out. The owner plans on having it staged with modern furniture to complete the look.
The rooms were painted in pinks and yellows. We painted a light grey throughout the spaces to give it a more modern look. A deeper grey/brown was chosen for an accent wall in the kitchen. The trim work and doors were done in a complimentary soft white.
This bathroom was a rather bright pink, the light grey walls and new flooring have completely transformed it.
The oak coloured parquet flooring is going to be replaced with a modern brown plank, the same as what has already been done in the kitchen. Once that’s done the oak cap and bottom portion of the railing system would not coordinate. We painted all those portions out white with the rest of the railing system so it all blends in.
The photos below are a great example of how light and colours interact. Natural and artificial light have a drastic impact on colour. All the walls in the photos below are painted in the same light grey colour. You can see how each different type of light changes how it looks.
Nanaimo Condo Repaint
The new owner of this condo didn’t like the stark white walls, but still wanted to keep it light and bright. A light neutral colour with a bit more depth to it was chosen. It works well with the floors. The trim work and doors were painted in warm white. We also painted the ceilings to brighten up the space, they had become discoloured over the years.
Nanaimo Rental Condo Repaint
This was a condo that we were renting for a period of time after we sold our house. We asked the landlords if they would mind us painting and of course they were happy to have their investment professionally painted. The walls as with many rentals see quite a bit of abuse over the years. We spent a great deal of time patching and sanding them looking smooth again. We painted the ceilings so they looked clean and fresh again. The walls throughout the condo were a typical off white colour which doesn’t give it any character. We added a lot of warmth by using rich earthy tones. The extent of how paint can transform a space still amazes us.
Repaint Of Family Room
The orange walls of this family room were not the taste of the new owners. They choose a warm grey colour to go with the new carpet. The new look has a more relaxed and cozy feeling to it.
Nanaimo Home Renovation
The owners lived in the downstairs of this home while they did an extensive renovation to main level. The walls were painted in an eggshell sheen while the doors and trim were painted in the same colour but in a semi-gloss sheen. This is a popular method used by decorators to give a monochromatic colour scheme but by using the semi-gloss on the trim and doors it gives them a slightly different look. We also painted the fireplace a dark chocolate colour and stained the large ceiling beams.
The den was the only room that had a different colour painted on the walls, it was a sage green. The same trim colour that was applied in the rest of the house was also put into this room.
Nananimo Modular Home Painting To Sell
This modular home was only 7 years old and in good condition, but there was a lot of sale competition at the time. Having it look it’s best was important before it was put up for sale. The interior colour of the home had a slight pink tone, the owner wanted it to look more modern. We choose three different colours brown tone colours to use throughout the space. The new colours instantly updated the look of the home. A darker chocolate brown was used in the main bathroom and laundry room, a medium mocha colour in the kitchen and ensuite and a lighter taupe in the main living areas and bedrooms. We also did a full re-paint of the exterior of the home which you can see in our exterior album of our work. We’re happy to report that this home sold in 4 days after it was listed!
Nanoose House Purchased To Flip
The owner of this house contacted us to paint the entire interior and exterior. He had recently purchased the house and was doing some renovations and a makeover to re-sell it. We painted the newly installed baseboards, trims and doors and all of the walls. We also painted the exterior siding, doors and trim work. We also did a full paint job to the exteriorof the house that can be seen in our album of exterior transformation for resale.
Two Storey New Construction House
In this new construction home we clear coated the wood doors, painted the interior room and closet doors, trims, bathroom ceilings and walls.
The owner of this house was also a finishing carpenter who installed all his own trim work. He wanted to make sure he hired painters that were going to take their time in making sure the trim work looked it’s best.
Two Large New Construction Houses
We were hired to paint two new construction houses that were being built on adjacent lots. We did the complete painting of the interiors which included the walls, baseboards and a lot of elaborate crown molding decorative fireplace fascades. We also stained the beautiful wood doors and wood window trims. Several types of wood were being used in the window and trim applications. Prior to our arrival they had started to clear coat the wood, but the builder did like how it was turning out. Various types of wood were used throughout the house, the doors, door trims, windows, window trims, window casings and the wood windows themselves were all different colours. We had to play around with the clear coat adding different tints and varying the amount to try to make everything appear more uniform in colour.
We also painted the exteriors of both homes which you can see in the exterior album of our work.
Painting Of Commercial Doctors Office
We painted this newly constructed doctor’s office that included the front reception area, hallways, laundry area, washrooms and patient treatment rooms. All the walls were done in modern warm light grey colour accented by soft white trim work and doors. The front reception desk had thin decorative panels wrapped around it that we sprayed in a darker grey.
Interior House Painting Prior To Move In
The new owners of this home had a small window where the could have some painting done before they moved in. If this is possible it a great way to get the painting done. Of course we paint homes all the time that are fully furnished, but if we can get in while it’s vacant and unfurnished it makes it that much easier.
We painted all the main living spaces of the house including the stairwell, entry and hallways. It will give the homeowners a good start and they will continue to paint some of the other spaces such as the bedrooms on their own once they have moved in.
The same colour was used throughout most of the spaces with a slightly darker colour in the living room and dining area. A chocolate feature wall was requested for the dining area wall.
