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.
In providing a blank canvas, it’s part of what we do as interior house painters in Kew. Our client has great furniture and amazing pieces. So all we needed to do was to paint a clean, crisp background.
Keeping things simple and elegant. As our client knows what is required to make an impact, so we just followed her lead and got down to preparing and painting her home.
Painting White Walls
It’s not as easy as it sounds! Faultless is the key word to painting a white wall. And yes, that takes preparation and preparation.

” Thanks Chris for your good work! I’ll post a glowing review on Facebook “
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.
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.
