Adding Some Colour And Warmth To White Walls In An Inlaw Suite
Thse owner of this brand new in-law suite wasn’t comfortable with the white walls. A grey accent wall was painted during the initial construction, but after moving in she realized it still felt too stark. We were hired to paint the rest of the main living space in the same warm grey colour. It was carried through the living room, dining area, kitchen and down the other side of the stairwell.
Whie can work in certain situations, but this doesn’t seem to be one of them. You can see the dramatic change in the before and after photos.
The master bedroom had the same scenario. It was white with a turquiose accent wall. It would be too much to paint out the rest of the room in the vibrant blue. A blue colour in the same tone was chosen but it was much lighter.
A Slight Colour Change Of A Nanoose Townhouse
The new owners of this high end Nanoose townhouse don’t mind green, but they didn’t like the particular hue of green that it was painted. It had a gold undertone. They choose a more neutral green and had us paint in throughout the open concept living room, dining area and kitchen and the connecting hallway and entry area. All they needed to do was move in their furniture and start enjoying the beautiful views.
Painting Of A Home That The New Owners Are Renovating Prior To Moving In
The couple that purchased this home had a window of time to do a bit of renovating and painting prior to moving in. They pulled a lot of the flooring on the main floor and gutted the basement to put in a suite for one of their parents to move into. We came in and painted before they put in the new flooring and prior to the kitchen cabinets being installed in the basement suite. They decided to go with a warm grey colour and white trim and doors. It helped modernize the house from the look of the previous pink walls. They plan to continue on with more renovations in the future.
Updating Interior Colours
The owners of this home were ready for an update from the burgandy, brown and green colour scheme that was present through much of the rooms. A classic beige was chosen. It’s been a popular colour for years, but it still provides a very current look.
Now that the varied wall colours have been painted in one shade the home has a more cohesive look and feels brighter and open.
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!
Qualicum Beach Patio Home
The new owners of this patio home hired us to do a complete re-paint before they settled in. We painted all the walls, the doors and trim work and some of the ceilings. Someone had tried to do a quick paint job to sell the home but unfortuntaley it was not done well or correctly. There several areas where wall paint was on the trim work and the ceilings, a poor patching job was done and an incorrect preparation caused the paint to fail on the fireplace mantle.
After we finished painting the difference was remarkable, the home now looked how it should have when it was put up for sale.
An attempt had been made by someone in the past to patch holes in the walls. The new owners didn’t see this when they viewed the property because it was hidden behind artwork and photos. It was done very poorly. There were thick deposits of patching compound that had been painted over. It created a lot of work, we had to do an excessive amount of sanding. Some it with a power sander.
The previous wall paint was on the trim work in many areas of the townhouse.
As we started to sand the mantle we realized none of the previous paint had properly adhered. It immediatly started to lift up. We were able to easily scrape it off. You can see the pieces in the bottom left corner of the photo below. Paint should not come off like this. It could be a combination of issues. It was possibly an inferior paint product, and/or the incorrect type of paint to adhere to the previous surface and the mantle was not prepared properly to accept another coat of paint.
The dining room and den were painted quite dark and don’t receive a lot of natural light so the home owners wanted a lighter colour. They choose a colour from Cloverdale Paint called Bamboo Beach. The fireplace was painted a darker shade to give some contrast and the mantle was changed from black to the same white colour as the trim work.
The trim work and doors had become discoloured over the years. The bottom left photo shows the drastic difference when they are brought back to a white colour. The top left photo shows the hallway before we painted. It’s the had the original builder’s white colour, the new colour gives the hallways and the entry much more warmth.
The bedrooms and bathrooms were the same builder’s white. The warm beige colour brings a lot more life to the spaces.
We painted the ceiling in the kitchen white, it helps to brighten up the space and looks clean and fresh. We did the same thing in both the bathrooms.
The previous bathroom and bedroom colours were quite pale. It didn’t do a lot for the spaces. We painted the rooms with a colour that has more depth to it. It helps add more interest to the rooms.
The owners are very happy with the improved look and can now enjoy living in their new home.
Painting Of A Kitchen After A Remodel
The homeowners did a partial kitchen renovation in this charming older home and called us to do the painting afterwards. We painted the ceiling, walls and trim work. The new look is updated but still keeps with the character of the home.
Freshening Up A Protection Island Cabin
The owner was preparing the cabin for sale. We agreed to take on the painting job on Protection Island. We did both the interior and the exterior of the cabin. On the interior we refreshed the white walls and the ceilings. You can see the complete colour change of outside in our exterior album.
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.
A Nanaimo Modular Home For Sale Is Painted And Has Carpet Replaced Instead Of A Price Reduction
This house had been sitting for sale for an extended period. At the time the market was not strong for sellers. Their realtor informed them they could either make a substantial reduction in the price or they could make some improvments. They decided to go ahead remove the warn carpet and clean up the look with a paint job. It was taken off the market for just a short time while the work was done.
The walls were originally a pink colour and the doors, baseboards and all the trim work were also painted with the same pink paint. We painted the walls a light grey that complimented the new berber carpet. We painted the doors, baseboards and trim work in a higher sheen in a crisp white to add a nice contrast to the walls.
As you can see through the before and after photos the change is remarkable. We were informed that it quickly sold after it was put back on the market and the owner still made a descent profit even after the cost of the makeover.
All the trim work, baseboards and doors look so much better once they were painted white. It gives the entire home a clean and fresh look that’s attractive to perspective buyers.
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 A 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.
