Adding Some Colour And Warmth To White Walls In An Inlaw Suite
The owner of this 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 the space 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 the stairwell.
Although white walls can work in certain situations, this didn’t seem to be one of them. You can see the difference between the before and after photos below. Using the grey colour on all the walls has warmed up space.
The master bedroom originally had white walls and one turquoise feature wall. The owner wanted to add some colour to the white walls so we used a very light version of the turquoise colour on them.
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 Is Being Renovated 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, blue and purple walls. They plan to do more improvements after the move in.
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. The home is not only much brighter it feels larger and more open because the spaces are not broken up with the variation of colours.
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, 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. There were numerous issues including poor technique and improper preparation. The homeowners were very pleased to have us come in and make the home now looked how it should have when it was put up for sale.
The photo below on the left is just one example of the poor patch job that had previously been done to the walls. The new owners didn’t see this when they viewed the property because it was hidden behind artwork and photos. Someone had applied an excessive amount of patch and didn’t sand it smooth. We had to do an extensive amount of sanding. Some it had to be done with a power sander.
The photo on the right is the complete failure of the paint job that was done to the fireplace mantle. No preparation was done before applying the paint. The previous coat was likely and oil paint. The new paint did not adhere to it at all. When we started sanding the mantle to prepare it for painting the product started peeling off in strips. After removing all the black paint we sanded the surface, applied an appropriate primer and then gave it two coats of white paint to match the trim in the rest of the house.
Once we finished up the painting in the main spaces the owners were able to move in their furniture and belongings.
The trim work and doors had become discoloured over the years.The ceilings in the kitchen were a beige colour. We painted white to brighten up the space. The bottom right photo shows how yellow the doors had become.
The hallway, entry, bedrooms and bathrooms were a builder’s white. The beige colour brings a lot more warmth to the spaces.
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.
Instead Of A Price Reduction A Home For Sale Is Painted And Has The Carpet Replaced
This modular home had been on the market for a long time. The realtor told the owners that if they wanted it to sell they would either need to make a substantial reduction in the price or they could do some improvments. They decided to 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.
Everything in the modular was orginally painted with the same pink colour including the walls, trim work, baseboards and doors. It was a look that wasn’t coming across very well to perspective buyers.
We painted the walls a light grey that complimented the new berber carpet. The doors, baseboards and trim work were done in a crips white to add a nice contrast to the walls. It gave the home a clean and fresh look.
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.
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.
