As interior house painters Albert Park, we get to paint a lot of banisters and balustrades. For us they’re the interior version of picket fences. Our techniques and experience are the key components in doing the job well, and looking good.
Our client chose a contempory colour scheme and we used it throughout the house. This took into consideration the age and style of the house. The client reinstalled many original features, which brought the house back to its former standing. The result is an elegant and classic house, that will look as good in 100 years time as it does now.
Vivid White Paint Problems
One of the most problematic aspects for us painters is coverage. Coverage is the paint’s ability to cover the intended material. Vivid White is a problem. Vivid White is intended to be used as a base, to be tinted up to a colour, so it lacks in depth, making it thin and watery. Technically it is still supposed to cover in two coats, but due to the lack of tinters, we find it rarely does.
We would recommend using ‘Builders’ White’ instead. It looks white, you can’t spot the difference, and covers better. The only difference is a small dash of black in it!
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.
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.
As house painters Parkville, we paint a lot of sash windows, we even have a sash window manufacturer and installer who recommends us to paint newly installed sash windows. And as a result, we paint a lot of sash windows!
Painting sash windows is rather more difficult than you would initially think. Three coats, or more, on three moving parts. With areas are hidden from sight until opened, or closed, risks of parts sticking together. Gapping, Filling, Sanding, and two different top coats, one acrylic and one enamel.
How many times did we go back to paint the same window? We are experienced exterior house painters, and we know it’s a lot.
Waiting for paint to dry…
Due to all these parts of the process, sometimes they stick! We will unstick them obviously. And we’ll provide you with a fact sheet, so when we’ve left, you too can make sure that they won’t stick. Paint takes a little while to fully cure (dry).
We are your Kensington Interior House Painters, and as a result we sometimes never leave our local suburb. We are your local house painters in Kensington, and Melbourne House Painters.
Every home as it’s own set of issues, for instance. But due of our painters’ extensive painting experience, and we have a lot, we can find the perfect painting solution. This home needed clean fresh lines, and faultless walls. Due to our attention to detail and we use lots of sandpaper, the results were easy to obtain.
