Interior Paint to Brighten Any Room
Professional house painters can completely change the look of any room in the home. Wanting a more romantic feeling for the bedroom? The right interior paint colors can help set the mood. Need a room that feels friendly and inviting for the kids? Choose the right wall painting colors and have a professional handle the painting. The right color can make a difference. For the inside of the home, check out dusty lilac, creamy mushroom, or a light blue color. To make a statement, consider coastal blue/green, a deep green, or bright colors like red as an accent color. The painters at Chesterfield Painters have a wealth of experience with color matching for your Richmond area home.
Refresh a Kitchen with Painted Cabinets
When it comes to a residential kitchen, the cabinet colors can be just about anything the homeowner desires. If old wooden cabinets are still in good shape, but are stained, scratched, or otherwise showing their age, cabinet painting can make a huge difference.
Done by a professional painter, this is a quick and easy way to refresh the look inside the kitchen and to get more use out of the older cabinets. The color to choose depends on the other colors inside the kitchen, though white, gray, and black are all popular options right now.
The staff at Chesterfield Painters is well versed on cabinet painting and staining.
A few DIY pointers
If you are thinking about trying it yourself, here are a few thoughts. Typically you should expect to use about a gallon of paint for every 400 square feet you are trying to cover for flat smooth surfaces. If you are painting rough, unprimed, or textured surfaces it could take more.
To determine whether the existing paint that you are painting over is water based or oil based, wet a white cloth with rubbing alcohol and rub the wall in an obscure spot. If the paint begins to get onto the cloth, it is water based and if it is unfazed, it is oil based.
Knowing this, if you are applying oil based paint to water based, or vise versa, the walls will need to be sanded and wiped clean before starting. Also a primer of the same type as the intended new paint should be applied.
You should allow the new paint a day to dry before refurnishing the room and at least a couple weeks before trying to wipe or wash it.
