We recently discussed in another article how you can identify a painting contractor who is worthy of your trust. After all, interior painting especially is a close and personal process, and you need to feel comfortable with the painter (or team) that is working within the spaces you call home.
One way that you can know you’ve found a painter who takes your trust seriously is when they display a close attention to detail. And, not just in regard to their painting procedures, but also in regard to how they care for and protect your home.
To show you exactly what we mean, let’s take a closer look at our interior painting protocol.
If you were to line up ten painting contractors and then ask how many of them were really worth hiring, our guess is that you would see at least ten hands be raised.
After all, who wouldn’t want to be hired for the job?
While this might be great for those ten painting contractors, it doesn’t exactly help you find the best candidate to meet your house painting needs. Thankfully for you, there are other ways to weed through the prospective painting pros, selecting the one who really deserves your trust.
Ready for the inside scoop?
It’s always fun to score a good deal, right?
Whether it’s something small like a pair of pants that finally went on sale, or maybe an awesome deal on appliances over a holiday weekend, it feels good to come out ahead with a jingle in your pocket.
Sometimes, however, going cheap becomes similar to cutting corners, and delivers long-term frustrations after that initial savings. “You get what you pay for” is an old adage, but it really rings true in many circumstances.
Today, let’s apply this concept (and warning) to the world of interior and exterior house painting. Is more expensive paint worth it, or are you falling for awesome marketing?
Your front door says a lot about your home. For many Nashvillians, a beautiful hardwood entry door is the mark of a well-loved home, a welcoming front porch, and a point of historic pride. Depending on your home’s age and exposure, however, the elements can wreak havoc on the fit and finish of your entry door. If your exterior doors are starting to show some wear, look a little shabby, or hang a little more loosely than you’d like, then it’s time to get to work on refinishing your front door. While it may be tempting to chuck the old door into the trash and buy a replacement, let’s take a moment to consider whether or not that beautiful antique door can be returned to its original glory. While inexpensive options exist, you’ll miss the look and authenticity of the real deal. It’s also worth noting that a new, custom hardwood door can set you back thousands of dollars.
Regardless of what you fill your kitchen with, it will always have one thing for sure: cabinets, and lots of them. Though rarely the stand-out feature, cabinets take up a large amount of “visual space,” and because of that, how you choose to paint your cabinets is a critical aspect of decorating. For many, that decision boils down to go light or dark with cabinet paint colors. Naturally, there are pros and cons to each decision.
