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.
Sometimes it’s great to paint new builds, and sometimes not. It really makes a difference when you’re working with a good builder, and that’s what we as, interior house painters Yarraville aim for. Planning is key to everything for a great paint job, especially when you are working around other trades. This job was well planned, so it went smoothly and on time.
The customer had already decided the colour scheme. And with a clear remit our job was easy.
With these important aspects taken care of, these are the painting jobs interior painters dream of.

Painted Black Doors
We had quite a challenge with the black painted doors, they were originally painted Low Sheen. Which looks great, however it is very easy to mark and damage. Due to a few kids in the family we had to come up with another plan.
So we suggested a semi gloss enamel, because gloss tends to look like a leather jacket from the 1970s. It worked a treat. And as so, it really complimented the black door furniture.

Painting Hallways in Style
We originally painted this front door over five years ago, it took an amazing 9 coats! We added 2 more this time to tidy it up. Guess this customer knew pineapples would be in 5 years ago! Some people just have it.
Making an entrance with style. It’s very important to convey all you want from the hallway, because sometimes that’s all the outside world sees of your house. Have you noticed Victorian houses tend to have a hallway of two halves, divided by the arch, midway. The first half decorative and well painted, the second half functional and a little drab. So getting it right can be difficult.
Hallways tend to be narrow and dark, another problem when choosing paint colours. You can either paint light and airy or go the opposite, as this client, paint dark and moody. The middleground is nowhere.
