Interior Painting, Richmond, MI: Color and Decoration Ideas for Each Room

Interior Painting, Richmond, MI: Color and Decoration Ideas for Each Room

Need help deciding paint colors for different rooms for your home in Richmond, MI?
Well, it’s time to spruce up, so let’s get right into it;

Dining room color ideas

Just think of all the colors on our plate that whet our appetites: red pepper, lime, sorbet yellow, eggplant or pumpkin … All these colors have their place in a dining room.

If you are not a fan of bright colors, the soft shades coming out of the spice cabinet should suit you: golden tones of cinnamon, rosemary, nutmeg … They create a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere, quick to bring together a family.

One more tip: create your own mix of warm and soft hues and let a bright color detail take care of bringing passion and energy into the room.
What would you think of pairing pastel yellow with a purple-pink, for example? Brown with aqua? Cream with red? Or sage with turquoise?

Living Room Color Ideas

Maybe you like the soft and natural shades, a bit nostalgic? Perhaps you prefer to play it grandiose by combining dark pink and sapphire?
Or perhaps you still want an intense color that creates depth?

If your living room is rather dark, light colors like light yellow and cream reflect the light and brighten the room.
Light blue or light green will brighten up your living room and make it look refreshing throughout the day.

If your living room is rather large, divide the space into several smaller areas, such as painting the inside of the shelving unit, providing a darker colored area behind the fireplace, or applying a light shade to the window frames…

Patterns also help brighten up space. Play with lines, tiles, original decoration, or areas of color.

Bedroom color ideas

Blue is arguably the most popular color in bedrooms. This is far from surprising because this color, which brings to mind the sea and a summer sky, has a soothing effect.
Green, which is also very relaxing, works very well here as well, while the soft, warm hues create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere.

Bright colors are not to be ignored, as long as they are correctly combined with natural shades.

Is your bedroom a little tight? Watch out for dark colors, which make the space smaller. Also, always aim for a good balance between warm colors and cool colors.
With a (warm) wooden floor, green is suitable, for example. With a tiled floor of cool color, prefer a warm shade.

Pro tip: apply your cool colors in an extra matte finish so that your walls appear a little warmer.

Bonus Tips: The Effect of Color on Your Interior

Colors have a kind of temperature; here is what it means.

Red – strength, passion, impulse.
Red is the ideal color to create an intimate, warm, and welcoming atmosphere, but beware: too much red can cause nervousness and fatigue.

Blue: serenity
Being an everyday color, blue creates a soothing and natural atmosphere in the bedroom.
Blue inspires and calms and is therefore perfect for places where you study, sleep, and read.

White: purity.

White is calm, refreshing, timeless, but also dynamic. It stimulates creativity and enlarges the space in combination with another color; white looks fresh and vivid.

Purple: intelligence and spirituality.

Purple is the perfect color for a meditation or study space and has even more effect mixed with earthy colors like dark green, blue-green, brown…

Brown: tranquility
Monotone? Not at all! Brown creates an atmosphere of security, solidity, stability, and comfort.

Pink: Calmness
Give pastel tones a modern touch by pairing them with a soft shade of brown.
If you choose pastel shades, consider bright colors: pale pink, yellow, cornflower.

Painting on PVC in Washington, MI: Which Paint? How to Proceed?

Painting on PVC in Washington, MI: Which Paint? How to Proceed?

Furniture, garden armchairs, trinkets, gate … you can repaint many objects with paint. All of your PVC items can be personalized, upgraded, refurbished, or saved from the trash with a fresh coat of paint.
Read on what to consider when painting plastic, and see which paint you can use to get the best result. Remember to keep general safety instructions in mind.

Not all plastics are the same. Some are not plastic (deformable). What all plastics have in common is that they are polymers.
Simply put, this means that plastic is a single, huge molecule made up of individual blocks, which are the monomers.
There are many different types of plastics, and if you are not a chemist, engineer, or anything else, you will only be able to tell them apart by labeling.
However, when painting plastic, it is important to know what type of plastic it is. This is the only way to choose the right paint and avoid unpleasant surprises when painting.
Make sure that the part you are about to paint is made of PVC. This facilitates the choice of paint and helps to identify or avoid possible hazardous substances and the health risks that may result.
How do you attractively transform any PVC object with a new coat of paint without spending too much money?

Which paint to paint on PVC?

PVC is notoriously difficult to paint with standard commercial paints such as acrylic, for example.
Ideally, there is only one method to paint PVC: to use specific paints designed for PVC and plastics.
These paints have a special formula that allows them to stick to PVC and other plastic products.
Most of the time, they are offered in an aerosol can. You can certainly try painting the PVC with other products, but the result will most likely lead to surfaces that chip or scratch easily.

How to paint on PVC?

Plastic furniture, window and door frames, trash cans, vases, etc., can be painted very well, provided you take the right precautions.
However, the plastic must be properly prepared before painting, i.e., cleaned, sanded if necessary, and/or given a special primer.
Damage and irregularities can be leveled. Since you know what material you are coating, you can specifically purchase the right plastic primer and optimal paint.
The best thing to do is choose a paint manufacturer and then buy all the paint system products in their line. So, you can be sure that all the products you use are compatible with each other.
There are some special paint colors for PVC.

Of course, it is not always a must to buy the whole range of products. Many PVC surfaces can be painted with paint without necessarily priming.
Additionally, not all surfaces need to be perfectly smooth or shiny, and not all PVC coverings need to be weatherproof, scratch, impact, etc.
And multiple application is not always necessary or desirable – often it is enough to clean the part to be painted with soapy water, sand it down, and then paint it in the desired color with the spray can.
Choose the color you want from the wide range offered and, if necessary, ask the specialist staff in store for advice.

In short, what you absolutely need to remember: As stated before, do not use the following paints to paint PVC products, as they will not adhere:
Latex paints
Water-based paints
Acrylic paints
Non-plastic epoxy-based paints

Interior Painting Washington, MI_ How to Combine White with Other Colors

Interior Painting Washington, MI: How to Combine White with Other Colors

Interior Painting Washington, MI: How to Combine White with Other Colors

For some, white is not even a color as it is obvious. It’s a neutral tone that’s neither calming nor exciting.
However, it gives its beauty to all the other colors. By its purity, it visually enlarges the space and gives an impression of depth to small surfaces.

It is a timeless color that, if you look closely, is used in any interior. White has powerful symbolism. It is associated with light because it reflects it, where the other colors will absorb it.

Needless to say that all colors go really well with white because white is neutral. All the colors you can think of: blue, red, yellow, orange, purple, etc. This article aims to show you ways in which you can perfectly combine white with other colors.

Consider white for what it is – a blank page, a pristine backdrop, a blank surface.
No matter what color you pair it with, it creates contrast.

White-Color Combinations for Endless Possibilities

White, paired with another color, is anything but boring. It is a vibrant and luminous color that offers endless decoration possibilities.
You can pair it with natural shades, neutral colors, or bright shades; it is never cold. Take inspiration from the colors below.

Candy Pink

Candy pink is a color full of energy. This is not the most discreet color; however, combining white with candy pink is no problem.
It is a perfect combination for a child’s bedroom or a playroom. It is a combination that would be very suitable for a creative workshop or a DIY workshop.
It’s light, bright, and almost fun at the same time. And then, if you add copper or gold tints to it, it’s even prettier.

Flashy Orange

On a related note, you can opt for vibrant orange. It is a vivacious and cheerful color to associate with your white.
Both original and full of personality, this color duo is perfect for the kitchen. Or you can, like the candy pink, reserve it for the game room.

Sky blue

Blue, in decoration as elsewhere, is one of the most popular colors, whatever its shade. It’s relaxing and versatile, and when it comes to a sky hue, pairing it with white will make it pop and shine.
Think of the combinations in nature: a pretty blue sky and a few white clouds, beautiful turquoise waves caressing the white sand. These two colors form a harmonious couple that reminds us of a soothing paradise and relaxing nature.

Raspberry red

It’s an intense, lively, and luminous color. Paired with white, it offers a remarkable style. It’s a daring mix. Since it instantly attracts attention, it should be used sparingly. Harmony and elegance are the keys to highlighting this color duo.

Shades of beige

White, combined with different shades of beige, brings a lot of softness to an interior.
For a living room or a bedroom, this association transforms them into a peaceful cocoon.
If you want to play the card of subtlety and sophistication, this might be a good choice.

Navy blue
Do you want a refreshing atmosphere? Whatever your room, pair white with navy blue for a sophisticated edge. It may sound traditional, nautical, aquatic, or déjà vu. However, this combination is constantly reinventing itself due to the new shades of blue.

Chocolate Brown

For a neutral yet stylish choice, try contrasting white with a pretty chocolate brown. It’s pretty classic but less expected than the combination of black and white.
Think of it as an industrial type decoration because the brown of the leather softens the rest of the decoration.
And the white walls light up the chocolate brown furniture.

Interior Painting Washington, MI_ Colors Not To Use in a Bedroom

Interior Painting Washington, MI: Colors Not To Use in a Bedroom

Interior Painting Washington, MI: Colors Not To Use in a Bedroom

Your bedroom is one place in your home that is totally dedicated to you since you rarely welcome friends and family there.
In this sense, it is important that you feel comfortable there. Pretty sheets and beautiful cushions will certainly make a pleasant decoration.
But to make it a total haven of peace, you also need to focus on the essentials, namely the color of the walls.

Choosing a paint color for your bedroom is a tough choice. Because color not only contributes to the room’s overall ambiance but also affects your mood and emotions.
It is now known that color affects behavior and thoughts. Certain colors can calm us, others on the contrary to excite our nervous system.
If you like the paint color, we recommend that you choose it no matter what. But if you want to design your room like a peaceful cocoon, if you want to make it a calming place, it’s better to avoid certain colors.
We do not recommend these colors if you want to make your room a place of rest and relaxation.

Red
If you like red, save it for small decorative items like candles, cushions, accessories. In punctuation in a room, this color is quite appropriate.
On the other hand, it is not recommended on large surfaces. Certainly, this color is equated with joy and love in many cultures.
This is why some old-fashioned Parisian boudoirs are in shades of red.
However, this color increases the heart rate and creates a feeling of urgency or anger.
Red can even make you anxious, which will make it hard for you to fall asleep.

Orange

This color is ideal as a paint for a playroom, office, or gym.
Orange stimulates creativity. Your eyes may appreciate this color, but your brain will be affected.
If you really want to sleep, orange is not recommended since it bursts with vitality and luminosity.
In this color range, you can opt for a peach tone or a softer coral tone. Opting for a more pastel and less vibrant color will encourage relaxation.

Bright yellow
Much like red and orange, bright yellow is known to stimulate the sense. Hence, it is strongly discouraged to use it to paint your bedroom.
A bright, vibrant yellow stimulates the senses. While sunny tones will wake you up happily and are great for starting your day, they won’t help you relax in the evening.
Reserve them for the bathroom. If you go for yellow, go for pastel or muted shades of yellow or combine it with a cool color.
Otherwise, apply it in small touches, sparingly.

Apple Green
As you may notice, the colors not recommended in a room are bright colors, very saturated. And apple green is no exception.
Other greens like mint or emerald green work well in a bedroom. But apple green is too sparkling, that is, lively and shiny.

Dark brown

Avoid the dull, somewhat dated, dark brown. It can make a bedroom very dark and give it a heavy vibe.
But this feeling of heaviness is not systematic. The choice of color is, therefore, very subtle.
Chocolate brown is a trendy color. You still have to know how to choose it correctly.
So if your desire is for a bedroom in brown tones, choose a very light shade instead.

White
Conversely, white is very often used to reflect light and give an impression of space by enlarging the room.
To some extent, this is true. But don’t fall for the opposite excess of a very pristine white that will make your bedroom look like a sterile and freezing room.
Better choose neutral tones that are a little warmer, like beiges and sands –warm and relaxing.

The Bottom Line

Choosing interior paint can be fun and exciting, but it can also be a little intimidating. Use the above tips to learn the bedroom colors you should keep off so that you don’t end up with any unpleasant surprises.

Choosing Wall-Covering for Your House in Harrison Twp.

Choosing Wall-Covering for Your House in Harrison Twp.

Choosing Wall-Covering for Your House in Harrison Twp.

Is your wall covering no longer up to date? Do you want to give your decor a facelift? When you decide to renovate your home, replacing the wall coverings is usually part of the most popular projects.

To help you make the best choice, we have listed the main coatings and wall coverings available on the market and their characteristics.

Also, find out which coatings to put on your walls depending on the rooms to be renovated.

Wall Coverings: a Plethora of Options 

Wall tile

Traditionally used in damp rooms, wall tiles can easily find their place in a living room or hallway.

Among the most common wall tiles include;

  • Porcelain stoneware: appreciated for its robustness and ease of maintenance, porcelain stoneware wall tiles were first designed to cover floors. It’s available in many finishes and colors, and it can imitate a large number of materials (wood, natural stone, concrete, leather, etc.).
  • Earthenware: commonly used to cover the walls of a bathroom or the splashback of a kitchen. It’s is a ceramic wall covering offering a wide choice of patterns and colors. Avoid entry-level tiles, which are generally not very resistant to impact.
  • Cement tiles: very aesthetic, cement tiles are acclaimed for their retro side and their strength. After receiving water and oil repellent treatment (often carried out in the factory), they can be installed on any interior wall (dry or wet room).
  • Natural stone: a weighty material that must receive an anti-humidity and anti-stain treatment during its manufacture. Whether it is granite, marble, travertine, or slate, the handling and installation of natural stone wall tiles require special know-how.

Paint

Paint is undoubtedly one of the stars of the wall covering. It’s available in an infinity of colors, and it can be endowed with properties allowing it to adapt to all types of rooms and surfaces. There are two main types of paints:

  • Water-based paints: Less odorous and less harmful than their oil-based cousins, water-based paints also offer faster drying time. However, their maintenance is more delicate, and they are more difficult to apply.
  • Oil paints: these organic solvent-based paints are popular for their taut appearance and ease of maintenance. They nevertheless emit a strong odor (which may persist for several weeks after application). Among the most common oil paints, glycerol paint is the most widely used.

Wallpaper

Wallpaper is modernized and is now available in many patterns, colors, and materials to meet the needs and desires of all homeowners.

There are three categories of wallpapers:

  • Traditional wallpaper: relatively fragile and inexpensive, traditional wallpaper consists of one or more sheets of paper. It exists in a “simplex” (a single sheet of paper) or “duplex” (sheet of paper and underlay) version, the latter being preferred for easier installation and better resistance. Traditional wallpaper is not suitable for damp rooms.
  • Vinyl wallpaper: made of a sheet of paper covered with a layer of PVC, vinyl wallpaper is particularly resistant. It’s waterproof, easy to maintain, and installed in all types of rooms, including wet rooms.

Decorative plasters

The decorative coatings are used to create a unique atmosphere and are generally more resistant than conventional paint. Some examples of coatings commonly used in decoration include:

  • Lime plaster: It’s appreciated for its ability to regulate humidity and its antibacterial properties – lime plaster creates an authentic, even rustic, atmosphere in your interior.
  • Stucco: mainly intended to imitate the appearance of marble, stucco is a decorative plaster based on lime, glue, and marble dust. Other materials such as quartz, brick, or slate powder can replace marble dust to create different mottling shades.
  • Waxed concrete effect coating: It’s a mixture of sand, lime, and clay. The “waxed concrete” aspect of this coating is obtained after polishing the wall and applying a varnish layer. Wall waxed concrete is available in many colors.

The Bottom Line 

Choosing wall covering can be fun and exciting, but it can also be a little intimidating. Use the above tips to make sure that you don’t end up with any unpleasant surprises.

Tips for Renovating an Old House in Harrison Twp. MI

Tips for Renovating an Old House in Harrison Twp. MI

Tips for Renovating an Old House in Harrison Twp. MI

Woodwork, cornices, shelters, pediment cubicles, guardrails in cut shingles, wall and roof coverings with old materials, sash windows, dormers, doors in joinery assembly, gallery posts, balcony, traditional joinery, wrought iron fence, spiral staircase: the abundance of decorative elements of an old house steeped in history gives it a character that we wish to keep, at least in part.

The solutions to the problems of older homes cannot be found in supermarkets.
Very few people have the necessary expertise in this area.

Tips for Renovating an Old House

Although you might expect it, you should check with your municipality if the building you want to renovate has a special status.
Some municipalities have a department that oversees architectural heritage preservation, so you may have to follow specific rules if your home is classified as a heritage building.
These rules aim to preserve the house’s original appearance and therefore limit the nature of the modifications that can be made to it.

Develop a Realistic Renovation Plan

At the same time, please find out about the programs offered; you could benefit from grants intended for owners who want to preserve their residence’s heritage character. Once you have checked, you must prioritize the renovations to be carried out.

Improving energy efficiency or solidifying the structure, for example, are major jobs that should be at the top of your list.
Also, the replacement of the roof is part of the work that cannot really be postponed. Since it can be difficult to bear the costs of carrying out multiple projects in one year, developing a plan is essential if you don’t want to take on too much debt.

Contact the contractor responsible for the work.

If you retain the services of a general contractor who knows the materials and masters the techniques to be used, he must be able to explain the reasons for his choices, to discuss with you each problem encountered in due course as well as possible solutions.
It would be best if you felt confident. This collaboration is essential for the result to correspond to your desires.
In the field of maintenance, renovation, and restoration of heritage buildings, mistakes can be costly.

Some examples of Possible renovation Jobs

Joining the stones

Often the foundation walls of old houses are made of stone. This can be a disadvantage in the spring, as water from melting snow can seep through a crack.
Whether it is to prevent flooding in your basement or restore it to its original plume, it is recommended to repoint your foundations’ stones.

Maintenance of Painted Surfaces

The maintenance of painted surfaces is done first by washing with water and vinegar; then, you must prepare the surfaces to be painted, paying particular attention to cornices and sheet metal roofs subjected to bad weather.
Moisture can cause materials to rust or mold.

To prepare the surface, you choose three stripping methods: mechanical, thermal, and chemical.
There are several paint scrapers for manual stripping, but it is better to opt for the longest handle possible, 60 cm long.
This technique is followed by sanding with a rough paper then medium.

With the long and grueling step of stripping completed, you need to caulk and correct the wear and tear damage to the exterior siding.
A wood siding will often exhibit defects such as rotting spots, cracks, or the like in certain places.

To repair them, you must cut a piece of wood plank that will largely cover the defect, the outline of which you will trace on the part of the wall to be replaced.
Cut the part to be changed with a sharp chisel. After checking that the piece fits into the cavity, coat it with waterproof glue, and apply it inside the cavity to stick them together.
Attach a few finishing nails and remove the excess with a chisel and sandpaper.

Now that the surfaces are even, you can now apply a primer for painting afterward. Nowadays, the paint available on the market is of better quality, so it hides more and lasts longer, resists mold, and has an aesthetic finish with more shine.

Interior Painting and Décor Harrison Twp. MI: Industrial Décor Style Guide

Interior Painting and Décor Harrison Twp. MI: Industrial Décor Style Guide

Interior Painting and Décor Harrison Twp. MI: Industrial Décor Style Guide

The industrial style is suitable for people who are looking for a decor concept that is not pretentious.
The industrial style’s visual appeal and charm lie in its ability to combine utilitarian surfaces, stripped-down architecture, and salvaged objects.
If you’re looking to celebrate humble materials, this style of decor is worth considering.

One of the advantageous aspects of industrial decor is that the materials used can be as affordable as you want!
Since industrial-style decor is meant to be as clean as possible, it doesn’t necessarily cost a fortune.
This article will describe the main characteristics of this type of decor while giving you tips for creating an indoor environment that is simple, comfortable, and elegant.

The furniture incorporated into industrial decor is minimalist and no fluff. There are strong and clear lines, without excess ornamentation.
A good way to get the industrial style is to mix new pieces with recycled items.
You can convert materials like wooden crates, old ladders, or concrete blocks back into shelves, tables, or individual items.

Furniture that is too ornate or too cozy is not suited to the industrial style.
Any furniture dedicated to comfort (armchair, bed) should be neutral in color, with natural textures.
If you are using cushions or rugs, choose neutral and nuanced hues; think of woven wool, which adds a lot of texture.
Furniture should be designed with a minimalist design (think of a wrought iron bed base or a simple and elegant armchair).

Industrial Theme

If you consider an industrial color scheme, monochrome is in the spotlight, although colors with cool undertones are also welcome.
Consider neutral grays or blues for the walls, but for accent colors, you can dare tangerine and fuchsia, or their darker cousins, plum and burnt orange.
Moss and indigo greens, on the other hand, stand out well in kitchens or bathrooms.

If you stick with neutral tones, we suggest choosing from various shades to prevent the space from taking on a one-dimensional appearance.
This type of decor is focused on “industrial” textures such as concrete and metals; the variations already present generally allow working with a monochrome palette.
If you’re painting the walls and find the rooms in your home lacking in visual impact, consider adding an element that acts as a focal point or a texture that adds depth.

You Need the Audacity

To adopt the industrial style well, you have to differentiate between treasures and less interesting objects.
Remember that showing some signs of wear adds character to the object. If you find an accessory or piece of furniture that might look out of place in a traditional setting, there’s a good chance it fits into an industrial setting!
Found objects or suitable works of art, such as “mix media” sculptures or large abstract works of art, are favored.

As mentioned, metals are a key part of industrial styling, so consider incorporating tin, steel, iron, and aluminum into your space.
The metal will add style and elegance to highlight elements such as piping, aluminum counters, and steel stairs.

On the other hand, avoid warmer metals such as gold or brass, and choose cool metals with a matte finish.
Stone is another exciting way to cut through the monotony and add depth and character to these industrial spaces.

Bedroom Renovation in Romeo, MI_ The Checklist

Bedroom Renovation in Romeo, MI: The Checklist

Bedroom Renovation in Romeo, MI: The Checklist

The bedrooms are, so to speak, fundamental rooms of your home. Therefore, rearranging and personalizing them will allow you to develop in your home fully.

To help you in your current project, we have decided to create a guide where all the main information will be gathered, with a cheat sheet that you can use to follow the work’s progress.

The Keywords of Bedroom Renovation

Comfortable

Knowing how much most people do not get enough sleep and that several factors associated with their environment can impact sleep cycles, a bedroom layout should be designed to promote comfort and rest.

Welcoming

A comfortable room is good, but it also has to be welcoming. A beautiful layout, with quality furniture and decorative elements that give character to the room, this is the magic recipe to create the room of your dreams.

Personalized

Finally, since the bedroom is one of the most intimate spaces in a house, it’s the best place to have fun with decorating.

If the room is shared between several people, we can harmonize the styles and preferences of each or create delimited areas for the occupants to find their account.

Determine Your Needs

If you have decided to renovate a bedroom, it is because it does not suit your needs or those who occupy the room (children, friends, roommates).

It is not difficult to come up with ideas for the room’s decoration and arrangement, but before starting the work, you should make sure that the needs that were not met initially will be taken care of during this project.

You can spend hours browsing Pinterest, the IKEA catalog, home decor magazines, and so on.

However, avoid focusing only on the aesthetic aspect of the room. The layout must also be practical and ergonomic.

To ensure that the room meets the needs of the person who will occupy it, here are some criteria to consider:

  • How much it invites to sleep and rest;
  • The durability of materials;
  • The amount of storage;
  • The decoration creates a beautiful, personalized space.
  • Bedroom decor design

Questions To Ask When Planning A Bedroom Renovation Project

Where is the room located?

Is the room located in a small space, at the end of a hallway, at the top of a difficult staircase, or does the room has an unconventional shape?

Note the aspects that characterize the space, as this will impact the types of furniture and materials you are going to be able to use.

Was the room already used as a bedroom?

The level of transformation would be different if the room were not originally used as a bedroom.

For example, in the city, you often see people transforming their double room into two separate bedrooms.

You have to think about building new walls, adding doors, or even windows.

Is the room good enough for sleeping?

We mentioned this quickly in a previous paragraph, but it must be reiterated how important it is that the bedroom offers good sleeping conditions.

Everyone is different and has their own needs when it comes to sleep, but generally, keep the following points in mind.

The room must be well ventilated;

The bed must be placed strategically (to avoid drafts, exposure to light, people who have to step over furniture to move around);

It is preferable not to integrate an office or a workshop in the same room to avoid distractions;

What about soundproofing?

Soundproofing is one of the most important factors in ensuring comfort in a bedroom.

Ensure that the walls, doors, windows, and floors provide a good soundproofing level in the room.

Is there enough storage?

Even people who adopt a more minimalist lifestyle are often going to face a lack of storage options.

Bottom Line

If you want to repaint your room but don’t have skills and experience in interior painting, you might want to work with a professional painting contractor when it comes to the actual implementation.

 

At Eason Painting, we can even help you pick the right color before we get to the actual painting.

We have years of experience offering interior painting services in Macomb Township, Washington Township, Ray Township, Rochester, Rochester Hills, Romeo, Armada, Troy, Shelby Township, Harrison Township, Chesterfield, and Clinton Township, MI.

Resurfacing Your Cabinets in Harrison Twp MI: The Benefits

Resurfacing Your Cabinets in Harrison Twp MI: The Benefits

After living in the same house for a while, it’s normal to need a change. If you aren’t looking to do a big one or don’t want to do something complicated, then you should consider the possibility of doing smaller remodeling projects.
There are rooms that you spend a lot of time in, and the kitchen is one.

More specifically, many homeowners become bored with their kitchen cabinets; color, finish, or both.
Luckily, it’s possible to change the look, and this way, you can give your cabinets a second chance without investing in a whole new set.

How does resurfacing work?

This process comes down to renovating. Your cabinets’ structure remains intact, but the outer layer or ‘skin’ of your cabinets is removed and replaced, repainted, modified. Many people also choose to replace door accessories, like drawers and cabinet handles as well as hinges.

To complete this task, you must be skillful and patient while having some renovation experience under your belt.
The process is not instantaneous and can take between 2 and 4 days. The best way to make sure everything is covered is to purchase a plating set at your local hardware store.
It will contain the plating you will need as well as the application materials.

Keep in mind that not all cabinets can be resurfaced.
Your cabinets need to have a sturdy cabinet frame in plywood or MDF panels, a hardwood frame, and well-functioning drawers or cabinets with good storage options.

Obviously, resurfacing your cabinets won’t be worth it if they are in poor structural condition.

Cost-effective

The relative cost of installing new kitchen cabinets is not something that everyone can afford.
Once again, if you’re thirsty for a change in your kitchen, resurfacing is a great way to achieve that while keeping expenses down.
The cost of resurfacing will be approximately 60% less than that required when installing new cabinets.

An Eco-Responsible Solution to Renew Your Kitchen Cabinets

The reality is that many home improvement projects will cause a lot of losses. Removing old cabinets from the walls and replacing them will obviously lead to a lot of debris, ultimately increasing the amount of material going to landfills across the country.
Besides, many kitchen cabinets contain a material called ‘formaldehyde,’ which is harmful to the environment.

To limit this accumulation of dangerous debris, consider the eco-responsible aspects of this renovation project.
Resurfacing your cabinets will recycle these old materials and give them a second life.

Finishing options

Obviously, completely replacing your cabinets will give you a lot of choice in materials, colors, or finishes.
Being aware that with the resurfacing process, there are a lot of veneer and color options out there too, which will give you access to almost as much variety.
For example, if you like the look of real wood, there are plenty of veneer options like maple, walnut, and birch available.

Not only are the plating and paint options plentiful, but you also have the flexibility to install new hardware.
Why not consider installing edging, moldings, or even glass doors so that you can display your most beautiful kitchenware?
No matter which option you choose, know that there are plenty of possibilities when it comes to resurfacing.

How to choose the paint color for a living room in Harrison Twp MI

Generally, we do not advise homeowners to color their walls just because it is trendy.

First of all, you have to opt for tones that you like to feel good at home. The difficulty lies above all in harmonizing colors.

While there are no right and wrong shades, it is clear that there are some pitfalls to avoid when choosing the paint color for the living room.

Let us take the time to reconsider things.

A New Colour for The Living Room Walls: The Main Principles

Repainting the living room is a good way to have fun. This makes it possible to rejuvenate the room, and we generally take the opportunity to personalize the decor so that his home is unlike any other.

The living room is the most important because we spend a lot of family time there.

It is also here that we receive friends and family for some good times together.

So we try to bring character to the room by applying two different colors of paint rather than the same color on all the walls. Some combination can make a difference, for example:

  • Red and purple to express luxury in all its splendor,
  • Ecru and chocolate to create a soothing and elegant atmosphere,
  • White and black to play the card of contrasts and add a design note,
  • Black and paprika for the vibrant touch …

Monochrome also works well for a successful cocooning effect. Blue or even powder pink lend themselves particularly well to this, bringing a touch of refinement to the living room.

Paint to enhance the living room

By its color, the paint can enhance an alcove, which until then probably went completely unnoticed or any other architectural detail such as a vault, an old beam, moldings, or a bow window.

A flashy color – like electric blue and orange – should be applied in moderation, that is to say, in small touches to give rhythm to the décor.

It can enhance the main color if it has been chosen specifically in natural tones.

Bring Light to The Living Room

Light is always at the heart of any décor subject. Whatever the color of the living room paint you choose, it should in no way darken the room.

An extensive area open to the garden can tolerate all shades, from the lightest to the darkest.

This is not the case for a small living room that has only one window overlooking a courtyard.

In this case, white paint or eggshell still allows you to enjoy a minimum of brightness.

Valuing Your Property to Sell It Better

These tips are just as valid when applying new paint to the living room before reselling your house or apartment. A big lack of taste can cause negotiations to collapse.

The makeover of your property involves measure because it is highly preferable to opt for neutrality in which buyers can project themselves very easily.

Choosing the new paint for the living room is one art; putting it on is another.

Improper application can spoil the best color combination.

Painting is the most difficult thing to handle on large surfaces when you are not skilled in the art.

This is why it is highly recommended to hire an experienced professional painter for all your residential painting tasks.

When repainting your home for resale, it’s generally safer to stick to neutral, lighter, and softer color tones instead of bold, bright colors.

Also, consider hiring a professional painting contractor for your project. If you haven’t identified a professional painter for your project yet, our Eason Painting team can help.
