Victorian Brick House – Exterior Painting Kensington

Exterior Painting Kensington

Much of our time is spent exterior house painting in Kensington. As our local suburb, it’s great to not travel to work. Painting the traditional house exteriors is our bread and butter. Half are weatherboard houses, and the other are brick houses. Here in Kensington, we have both. However, both pose their own set of problems and will have their own character.

The brickwork was badly cracked, but the customer planned ahead, and as so, had organised a bricklayer to fixed these before we started painting. It’s great to plan ahead, because it fixes most problems before they arise. We always recommend our clients, have a good look around and fix up areas before we start. House maintenance is very important in protecting your investment. We help by putting the final touches to it.

When we’re painting the colours black and white together, it’s always gets a little difficult. Due to it being the most defined difference, in the colour palette, and that means we have no margin for error. No problem, because we have steady hands and nerves of steel, and that’s what’s needed!

Kensington House Painting

House Painting Kensington is what we are all about. Why ? Because we are local. It’s great to live in a suburb with such interesting houses, because it makes painting house interiors very rewarding for us. We tend to paint a lot more of these traditional homes than the new builds as a result.

I’ve always loved painting details. Whether it’s picking out the details of the cornice, or painting the flowers on ceiling roses. Or in this case, the barrel is rag rolled in Metalic Dusty Gold. Even when we use just one colour over the details, different sheen levels can make these features stand out. It’s amazing what we can acheive with paint.

Interior House Painters Kensington – Traditional or Modern House Painting?

As interior house painters Kensington, we get to paint a lot of traditional Victorian houses. Sometimes they’re classic and traditional in the interior finishings. Other times they are a modern version upon the theme. And the new refurbishments; with a new set of ideas, because of the transformation of an existing building, we will help develop your brand new interior concept home. Whichever interior idea you choose, we’ll enjoy painting it, why? Because we like running with your ideas. We have an Interior Decorator who can help you find the ideal idea, because they can accomplish traditional, modern or concept.

The painting of ceiling roses, cornices, archways, picture and daido rails isn’t as obvious as it may seem. These items can define the style of your home, because these are the period pieces. Whether we’re painting to highlight the traditional features, or we’re painting them to hide them. We’ll enjoy making your ideas come to life. Or if you’re using an Interior Decorator, their ideas!

In conclusion, a traditional house give you lots of scope. Because it has ‘good bones’, it will give you a great canvas to work on.

Kensington Exterior House Painters

And another weatherboard painted! I have to admit, weatherboard houses are the reason I’m a painter. Why? It’s such an easy way to feel satisfied at the end of the day. And so we are the Weatherboard House Painters Kensington

It’s great to come to work and know you’re going to make a big difference. After the preparation, it’s amazing how quickly these houses change. Painting changes there character, gives them personality, and as a result, a reflection of you.

The colour choices here proved my first impressions wrong, because I thought they were a little too bland. Then the door was painted, and as a result, it really sprang to life. We are the Weatherboard House Painters Kensington.
