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.
There are two good reasons for painting blank canvas for us at Sterling Painters, the Richmond House Painters.
Number one, to allow something else to shine. You have great undiscovered/famous art pieces, fantastic must have furniture, or the most wonderful parquet floor interlaid with the finest Moroccan handmade tiles.
Number two, to expand the illusion of space. To make small spaces look bigger, boring but functionally very important. Yawn!
The Colour of Paint
Blank Canvas Number One. Display.
Now you’re thinking that you have to paint the blank canvas number one white, or some variant of white, right?
Clean, unspoilt, blank walls of any colour will do. We are not talking feature wall here. Infact the importance is the lack of feature. Be brave and go for it.
Blank Canvas Number Two. Space.
Again this doesn’t mean it has to be painted white. Sometimes it actually helps if it isn’t white. Take the smallest room in the house. Yours is white, right? It looks small, right? Painting these small rooms dark colours gives the illusion that the walls are further away, it helps if the ceiling is painted the same colour too.
Technical Conclusion to Painting Blank Canvas
Both blank canvases have to be featureless. Resulting in even more preperation. We actually think about the use of the room. It’s no good having the most amazing Jackson Pollock if all you’re looking at is the crack in the wall! Again if you’re only six inches away, it should be perfect in everyway. Absolutely faultless.

Having worked with this customer and the Architech before, we know the high standards expected of the painting. The basic standard is the Australian Standard AS/NZS 2311, is where we start. We finish at a much higher level, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to achieve faultless, flawless painted ceilings and walls.
