Sterling Painters, Your Painting & Decorating Service Melbourne.
Category: Tradional Victorian House Painters
We’re your Tradional Victorian House Painters, with a wealth of painting experience and knowledge.
We love painting your cornices, tin ceilings, archways, and gigantic skirting boards. Not to mention your sash windows, of every shape and size, ceiling roses in tradional colours, with individually painted roses, is second nature to us. You name it, we’ve painted it. Sometimes in ten different colours. Sometimes in just one colour.
Because we are The Ascot Vale House Painters, we love to paint colour! Surprising eh? So finding a client with a great paint colour scheme, is a great reward for us.
Subtle paint colours and ascents, can make all the difference. Adding depth to rooms, and well needed interest. Whilst the blank canvas aproach to homes is great. Because it helps to show of your pieces and furniture. Sometimes the holistic painting approach shouldn’t be wasted. Because having the furniture and paint work all singing from the same song sheet, working together, can make a home, a home.
Wallpaper Installation – No Hanging About!
We even got to hang some wallpaper here too, and you know I love to hang wallpaper. As always the key to hanging wallpaper is preparation, preparation is the key to just about everything! Having a flat surface, priming (sizing), and doing the maths and working out where each and every drop is going to hang.
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.
House Painters Kensington
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.
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.

Yes, we were the interior house painters too! The blue trim caused us many problems, due to it’s dark shade. As a result we just undercoated it three times! Normally, In contract, we undercoat all the trim just once.
