When the homeowners contacted me about this project, they were thinking that they wanted to update the look of the kitchen. They were hesitant about investing too much time and money, but wanted it to be more elegant and current. When I looked at the kitchen, I immediately knew that they could revamp the entire kitchen much less expensively than installing new cabinets, giving them the look and feel of a completely remodeled kitchen at a fraction of the price.
If you want the job done right
Just as finding the right color using the right paint is just as important if not more so. Shopping at just one paint store leaves you with a limited selection and possibly the wrong product for your project.
To ensure you have the correct product for your project I visit multiple different paint stores a day. Most painters only go to one store just as Kelly More, but I am familiar with and use all brands of paint. Some jobs such as molding require Benjamin Moore products due to the sheen, ability to reduce brush lines, easy touch up, and outstanding adhesion. Most painters will recommend Kelly More’s 1685 Dura Poxy, but I find that it comes off as plastically and is not as durable.
Have you been following the latest painting trends and want to give your home a fresh and trendy new look? The process can be overwhelming. Going to the paint counter, picking colors, and then actually painting it can make your head spin. Choosing the right color, while it might seem simple, is a science that color consultants have mastered. What you see in a magazine or online cannot be matched by going to your local paint store, as there are many factors that need to be taken into account.
First – Consider Light
Your house is unique you might have afternoon sun; you might have shadowing from a tree, or so forth.
Second – Start with the big items
You want to start with the most expensive item like your floors or counter tops and then work your way to paint and accessories.
It is important to have a professional like myself bring a deck into your home and take into account the above factors to save you time and money.
What paint is the best choice?
Are you concerned with fumes I can recommend a low VOC product. Flat, eggshell, satin, and semi-gloss overwhelmed yet??
I have a house under construction can you help me?
Of course, but I recommend that you have your floors, and counter tops picked prior to having me come and pick colors.
Before you have a color consultant come in have these two things ready:
- Samples of counter tops, flooring, or whatever else is relevant to that room such as bedding.
- Your inspiration for the project: a magazine, Pinterest , etc.
Color consulting is my specialty in addition to the application of the paint. If you’re in the San Jose area, I can help you choose the right colors for your environment and taste. Check out my color consultation service!
