Repainting the Interior of Your Home

By | General Renovations

When you are considering any remodeling project in your home, you have to take a number of aspects into account. The upgrades should add to the aesthetics of your home and create the kind of ambience and functionality you want. In addition, they should add some value to your property in the end. However, you also have to keep the cost factor in view as most renovation projects tend to go over budget.

While you do need a change in the way the interior of your home looks, it may not always be either necessary or possible to get extensive and major upgrades done. This is why you can change or replace the upholstery, add décor and art pieces and change the window treatments in your home, on and off.

Why Get Your Home Repainted in Rhode Island?

However, sometimes these changes don’t give your home the finished look you want; and you may wish there was a simple and cost-effective way to enhance the overall appearance and feel of your home. There is a way you can achieve this; you should consider getting the interior of your home painted. The walls of your home essentially become the backdrop of all the other features in the space. If the paint in your home is old, faded or dreary-looking and is peeling, it can impact the look of all the other elements and features in your house.

The Benefits of Interior Home Painting

Here are some benefits of getting your house repainted:

Add life to your walls – We all clean our floors on a regular basis and ensure they are maintained well. But we hardly if ever clean the walls and ceilings in our homes. It’s true that dust tends to gather far more on the floor, than it does on the walls, but we don’t realize exactly how dirty our walls and ceilings can get, over the years if not cleaned routinely.

When you repaint the interiors of your Rhode Island home with our painting service, we will first sand and clean all the surfaces. We will then apply a primer layer as a base coat. This process automatically cleans all the accumulated dust and debris from your walls. Once the coats of paint are applied, you will find that your walls look far fresher & more pristine than they have in years.

Wall surface protection – Most people are aware that good quality exterior paint helps protect the siding & trim of their home. However, very few homeowners are aware that interior paint too serves a similar purpose. The different applications such as plaster and installations such as drywall tend to absorb moisture over a period of time.

A fresh coat of paint also helps protect these surfaces from getting contaminated with pathogens such as mildew and mold caused by moisture accumulation. Current day paints are made with new and novel ingredients and techniques and they also help repel dust.

Value addition – It makes a great deal of sense to get your home repainted every few years. In fact, even homeowners that are planning to put up their house for sale get their homes repainted before they list it on the market. The simple fact is that a good paint job can very effectively spruce-up the look of your home and make it look more presentable, which in turn adds to its resale value.

Transform Your Kitchen With a New Backsplash

Backsplashes: The Inexpensive Upgrade that Will Overhaul Your Kitchen

There is an element you should set aside time to consider when you renovate your kitchen: The backsplash. Like it sounds, a backsplash catches food and water while you cook or do the dishes. Later it can be easily cleaned with a quick wipe down. But nowadays, backsplashes do so much more than that. They have become the darlings of the design world, an accessory that ties the whole kitchen together. With endless styles and options, Rhode Island and Massachusetts kitchen remodelers can consider the following as a guide to effective backsplash brainstorming.

Backsplashes that take up more wall space

Traditionally, backsplashes kept to themselves, relegated to that little space above the stove or possibly extending in a trim all along the countertop. Interior designers are now getting more creative. Backsplashes sometimes extend halfway up the wall on every wall in the room. Or, for a really modern look, white subway tiles can cover every inch of the kitchen walls. It’s up to you. If you are into clean lines, you may prefer backsplash walls that appear less like an afterthought and more like a key design element.

Backsplashes that use innovative material

The secret to why backsplashes can be the star of the kitchen is their versatility. Here is your chance to show off your design chops, no matter what style they are. Homeowners with more mature tastes might choose intricate mosaics and etched glass. Artistic types can go for sea glass, embossed copper, or wood. As with any use for wood, you have a myriad of other choices. What kind of stain? Or maybe a natural, unfinished look.

Within the world of tile, you can choose beveled pieces that will give texture and shape. Certain tiles have iridescent or faintly metallic qualities, giving off a glint when you walk by.

Those with ultra-modern tastes will love the idea of a smooth sheet of stainless steel, or a mirrored panel that expands the room.

With a backsplash, you do not need to limit yourself or your creativity. The only restriction should be the look of the kitchen itself. Choose something that will stand out, but not too much. The backsplash must pull the colors and textures of the cabinetry and countertops together.

Backsplashes that incorporate extra functionality

When deciding on a backsplash, think about what you want the backsplash to accomplish. If you only want it to be functional in the sense that it is easy to clean, you won’t have to consider any additional elements.

However, for a wall mount faucet over the sink or stove, backsplashes are an important element to help visually incorporate the fixtures. Be sure to make your design choices based on how the faucet and backsplash will look together.

There is another option you may not have considered. Just like an inset shelf in the hallway can be a beautiful place to display a vase, a built-in boxed shelf in a backsplash over the stove can be a stylish storage spot for your favorite cooking oils. In that case, you can choose tile along with complimentary molding and trim.

When dreaming up a kitchen renovation, the backsplash is an easy, fun, and affordable addition. Not only can it tie together the overall design, but it can also help inspire you in those initial planning stages. Above all, don’t miss out on this chance to stylize your kitchen.
