A Great Finish

You want to give your house a makeover but can’t decide whether you want to hire a professional painter or do the job yourself? Taking on the job yourself could save you money but there is no guarantee you’ll be satisfied with your painting job. So… should you hire a professional?

Quality Work

There’s a vast difference in appearance and durability between a do-it-yourself painting and one applied by a pro. Professional painting will produce lasting, picture-perfect results that make your home pop.




Detailed to Perfection                                                                       

Professionals spend unbelievable amounts of time prepping surfaces.  They follow a multi-step process that includes sanding, masking, caulking and filling, then priming, sanding, and caulking and filling again.   High powered lights are used from all angles before they apply finish coats. The final appearance has as much to do with prep work as it does with paint.  _DSC2466_ web






Knowing What to Use

Pros stick with paints that have proven themselves over years, and they have the experience to know which ones work best where. They understand the differences in sheen and coverage between different products, as well as what kind of surface each covers best and in what conditions. They know how to make crisp lines at edges and intersections, and how to create even looks over multiple surfaces.  finished job






The Right Tools

It’s no surprise that pros also invest in high-quality tools. There are an overwhelming number of choices in rollers and brushes and it takes experience to learn which ones will provide the exact look our Clients want, whether that’s a traditional brushed finish or one with a glass-like sheen.

The payoff is a finish that looks great and stands the test of time. Careful preparation, the right materials, and a finish applied by a skilled painter will last much longer before it needs painting again, which of course lowers the long-term cost, and frees you up to do the things you love.

Light it Up!

With so many activities happening in your kitchen, sufficient light is a must.  The most effective lighting for the kitchen involves four layers blended together: task, ambient, accent and decorative lighting. The result is a warm and inviting room that works with your other design elements to create a practical work space and entertainment area.  Consider these options when lighting your kitchen.

Recessed lights are perfect for ambient or general kitchen lighting.
