Disadvantages of Choosing Wallpaper Over Paint

0 Comments

Decorating the interior of your home is incredibly exciting; you get the chance to make this house your own! When weighing the options available for changing up your walls, you might find yourself at a fork in the road where you are stuck between the option of painting them or applying wallpaper. The team at Painting Plus of Colorado wants to provide you with some of the reasons that we personally feel paint is the only way to go. Sit back, and take a moment to read a few of the disadvantages of choosing wallpaper for your home.

Application Process

A common misconception of wallpaper is that it doesn’t take nearly as long as paint to apply. The reality, however, is that the process of applying wallpaper is far from quick and easy. In order for the design to line up and look the way you’ve envisioned, you are going to need to spend some time lining up, measuring, and contemplating. This is already going to be much more time consuming than the process of painting.

Aside from the time it takes to make sure the wallpaper will look good, you have the actual process of applying the wallpaper to the wall. From prepping the walls and applying the paste to placing the paper and rolling out the seams, this is a process you have to be prepared to take on.

Not a Quick Fix

One of the realities that all homeowners need to come to terms with is that it’s extremely easy to get bored with the way we design and decorate our homes. While it is easy to switch out throw pillows and replace knick-knacks, it’s not so easy to rethink wallpaper when you’re bored of it. This is probably one of the biggest reasons that we always suggest sticking with paint. Even the most basic of designs can quickly get old and be challenging to reconfigure in a new design.

Rather than go through the process of removing wallpaper a year or two down the road, stick with paint which is going to be much easier to change up when the boredom of the design does start to settle in.

Removal Process

The application process wasn’t super easy, so what made you think the removal process would be? It’s actually the removal process that made wallpaper go out of trend for a while. In fact, most of us have spent some time removing wallpaper in our lifetimes. Be it from your grandparent’s house as a child or the fixer-upper home that you purchased early in adulthood, it’s understandable that you would bury the memories of wallpaper removal as far down as possible. That being said, don’t bury them far enough that you set yourself up for this nightmare.

Not only is the removal process a huge hassle that you will have to take on, but it is also capable of damaging the walls in your home. Though there are some safe techniques available, you need to be wary of stripping tools and products that are heavy in chemicals or rough on your walls. As if removing wallpaper wasn’t bad enough, now you have to worry about the process of removing the wallpaper creating an additional project for your to-do list.

Stick to Paint

While wallpaper may seem like a great way to incorporate fun designs into your home, the cons will always outweigh the pros. Let the team at Painting Plus of Colorado, right here in Boulder, be the ones to take care of your design project for you. We make it easy for you to share your vision and turn it into a reality without ever having to lay a finger on a paintbrush.

Most Popular Interior Paint Colors of 2019 Thus Far

0 Comments

Each year brings new trends and design favorites. When it comes to interior paints, we see the favorites changing regularly. So far in 2019, we’ve seen many colors become popular, and we want to share them with you! If you’re questioning which color you should paint the interior of your home, keep reading. In today’s blog, we are going to touch on some of the colors that have been listed as favorites in 2019, thus far.

Dark Greens

A color that was popular a couple of decades back has made its return. Dark greens are finding their way into households across the country, and we can’t help but love it. When you’re looking for a way to incorporate the beauty of nature inside of your home, this is a great way to do that. Aside from that, dark greens are a color that makes it easy to add neutral tones and complementary colors throughout a room, so you never have to worry about feeling limited with your color and decor options.

Pastels

If you’re not entirely confident going for a darker shade inside of your home, muted pastels are another color that we are seeing gain popularity in 2019. These muted pastels are great for creating a calm and soothing sense throughout your home. When you’re looking for a color that will brighten up the space while still keeping things nice and serene, you can’t go wrong with the vast selection of muted pastels.

Mustard

One of the colors that we’ve seen become popular in many regards is mustard. In terms of interior paint, this is a color that offers a bright and warm feel to any room and is incredibly easy to decorate with. It goes nicely with a wide selection of colors and pairs beautifully with neutrals as well. So, whether you’re considering adding this to the living room or the kitchen, you can count on this color sparking some creativity and giving you plenty of opportunities to develop your design.

Shades of Gray

When people think of neutrals, off-whites and browns are the first things that come to mind, but not anymore. Gray has become an extremely popular color option because it serves as a neutral, but also offers quite a bit of depth to a room. With as large of a spectrum as this color provides, there is quite a bit of opportunity to find the shade of gray that best fits your home. This is yet another color that provides you with plenty of opportunities to add pops of color in the decor.

Soft Blues

Another fantastic color that we’ve seen become popular this year are the soft blues. While this isn’t a color that we see working in every room, we can definitely understand why so many people are eager to add it to their home. This is another color that provides the home with a sense of relaxation and calmness. It’s probably this effect that makes it such a desirable color to add to bedrooms, offices and sitting rooms. While it might not be as easy to add so many colors to the decor, varying shades of blue, gray, and white can make for a room that looks clean and put together.

What to Consider When Picking Exterior Paint

0 Comments

Picking a paint color for the exterior of your home is a pretty big deal. Aside from that, it’s often a big and expensive project to take on. Given that the exterior of your home is going to be the first part of your house that you see, it makes sense that choosing the final paint color can be challenging. If you’re currently weighing a few different options or you’re not even entirely sure where to start, today’s blog is for you.

The team at Painting Plus of Colorado wants to take some time to help you narrow down your options when it comes to exterior paint colors. The best way to do that is by pointing out the factors that will contribute to your final decision. So, in today’s blog, we are going to talk about a few of the things that you should consider when choosing an exterior paint color.

HOA Approval

This isn’t something that every homeowner is going to have to worry about but, for most homeowners in the suburbs, it is: an HOA. Your HOA may or may not have specific rules regarding the colors that you can paint the exterior of your home. If you have an HOA, make sure that you first reach out to them to get the guidelines for exterior paint. If there are only a handful of options, this could make it all the easier to make your decision, but if there are guidelines, at least you can get a better idea of the path that you need to follow.

Unique Features

There is something about every house that makes it just a little bit different. Even in those cookie cutter neighborhoods, there are unique features that make a home beautiful. When you look at the exterior of your home, make a note of the features that you are drawn to and the little details that you love. These are things that you should keep at the forefront of your mind when you narrow down exterior paint color options because the last thing that you want is for them to get washed out or forgotten.

The Landscape

While it may not be the first thing that comes to mind when picking a color for the exterior of your home, your landscape plays a pretty big part. This is going to be the backdrop for your home, so of course, you want to make sure that it fits nicely. Luckily there are so many beautiful colors that nature has to offer, it’s not exactly a downfall that your landscape can serve as a piece of inspiration.

Colors that Compliment

As most would assume, you’re going to want to find colors that work well together. Finding a couple of colors that compliment each other is something that everyone wants, but it isn’t always as easy as you’d think. Do you remember those unique features that we talked about earlier? Well, the color scheme that you choose is going to make sure that those unique features stand out. Whether it’s a gorgeous trim, old-timey shutters, or intricate details added to the exterior, the color combination should complement the character of your home. Take this into consideration when you look at primary and secondary exterior paint colors.

Our painting company has been helping homeowners with their exterior paint since 1988.

Common Mistakes Made During DIY Paint Projects: Why to Hire a Pro

0 Comments

Painting is one of those projects that people always feel like they can handle on their own. While this DIY project may seem like a simple one, it comes with its fair share of mistakes. If you’re considering a paint project, it may be time to reconsider. In today’s blog, we are going to touch on a few of the most common mistakes that people make when taking on their own home painting project.

Poor Planning

A lack of planning and preparation is one of the most common mistakes that people make when they try to tackle their own paint project. Because painting seems like such an easy project to take on, very few people are aware of how much planning and preparation needs to happen. Whether it’s a lack of supplies or rushing through the job, every factor that goes into planning will have an effect on the way the project turns out.

Lack of Protection

Now, this partially fits into the lack of preparation that often happens, but a lack of protection can feel like a mistake all of its own. When you’re painting the interior of a building, there are so many factors that you need to be concerned with. From the furniture and flooring to the rooms down the hall, ensuring that these spaces don’t wind up damaged from this paint job can be tough work. That being said, it’s crucial that you are covering every bit of your house to ensure it is protected from the chance of paint being transferred.

Forgetting Primer Paint

Again, taking on a painting project always seems like a good idea until you’re ⅓ of the way through, and you’re bored of it. We understand it takes time, but skipping steps, like forgetting the primer, can drastically change the outcome of your painting project! If skipping the primer is how you choose to save time with this project, you can count on some walls that don’t quite match up with the color that you selected, walls that bleed the previous color, and more likely than not, another paint project in the future to correct it.

Choosing the Wrong Paint

One of the toughest parts about painting is having to choose which paint you’re going to use. With as many options as you’re given, the reality is that it comes down to more than just the color you choose. Are you going to want matted paint or a semi-gloss? Is the color going to balance the room, or make it significantly darker? All of these questions may seem easy enough to answer, but without experience, it’s easy to wind up choosing the wrong paint for your project.

Bad Technique

The last point that we’re going to cover is bad technique. As if the points above didn’t contribute enough to the paint job, technique can genuinely make or break the outcome of a project. We can’t say it enough — we know this project gets boring! While you may start off with a clean and crisp technique that leaves your walls looking great, it’s not always easy to do this for the entirety of the project. Once you get lazy or tired with the technique, it shows in the work, and that’s the last thing you want to happen.

Let the Pros Handle It

Rather than try and take a paint job on for yourself, let the team at Painting Plus of Colorado do it for you. The mistakes above are easy to make, especially when it’s not a project you’re passionate about. Having been in business since 1988, we have the experience and skills that you need to feel good about your painting project.

What to Consider Before Hiring Your Commercial Painter

0 Comments

When it comes to the interior and exterior of your commercial building, quality is something that you cannot sacrifice. The team at Painting Plus of Colorado completely understands that. We also understand how difficult it can be to find a company that’s going to provide you with the results that you’re looking for. In today’s blog, we are going to touch on a few of the qualities that you should make sure any commercial painter you’re considering hiring has.

Experience

Commercial painting varies from residential painting in a few ways. For starters, the size of the project is tremendously bigger. For that reason, you should make sure that any painter you’re considering hiring has had some experience with commercial painting specifically. From the deadlines and materials to the manpower and availability, only a company with experience painting commercial buildings is going to be able to provide you with quality results in all areas. So whether it’s interior or exterior painting, the size of the project alone is something that the painter you hire should have experience handling.

Insurance & Licensing

When you reach out to any painter that you’re considering working with, insurance and licensing should most definitely come up. If they are a company that offers commercial painting services, they should have both. Like we mentioned earlier, commercial painting projects are big and the last thing that you want is to have to worry about the safety of the painters. By making sure that they have insurance, you can rest assured that you won’t have to worry about their painters.

Communication

If a company chooses to take on a project as large as painting a commercial building, be it the interior or exterior of the building, you want to ensure that they have strong communication skills. From the vision that you have in mind for your commercial space to the status of the project that is being done, the painting company that you choose to work with should be able to communicate with you throughout the process.

Positive Reviews

As with any service that you are going to invest in, you want to know that the experience you’re going to have is a good one. While plenty of companies will boast of quality experience on their websites and during meetings with you, it’s always good to get a glimpse of the reviews that people have left for the company. This can help provide you with insight into both the pros and cons of choosing to work with this painting company.

Customer Service

This point ties in with just about every point above, but it’s so vital that it truly does deserve to be covered on its own. Customer service can drastically change the experience that you have with a company and the way that the project goes. This is precisely why we believe that quality customer service is something that you should always look for in a commercial painting company. You can get an idea of the customer service that you’re going to receive from the moment that you reach out to a company and request their services. So, take what you can from this first impression and let it help you determine whether or not they’re a company you’d like to work with.

Reasons to Add an Accent Wall to Just About Every Room

0 Comments

When it comes to painting the rooms in your home, trying to determine which color you’d like can be tough. When you paint an entire room certain colors, you have to worry about the room being too bright, too dark, and too harsh on the eyes. Rather than having to determine whether that will be the case for the colors that you’re considering, take a moment and think about whether or not an accent wall would be a better option.

What is an accent wall?

An accent wall, also known as a featured wall, is a wall whose overall design differs from the others. More often than not, this wall is going to vary in color. The difference doesn’t have to be drastic. At times, accent walls are the same color as the surrounding walls, just a shade or two lighter. It may even be a difference in texture that separates this wall from the others.

Either way, there are so many reasons that choosing to add an accent wall is something worth doing. Keep reading to see a few of the reasons that we love adding accent walls in just about every room.

Adds Color to a Room

One of the primary reasons that accent walls are added is because they add a nice touch of color to a room without it being overwhelming. If the color that you’re considering painting your room is a shade that could quickly become overpowering, choosing to add it to just one wall, rather than all four, is a fantastic option. Whether you have children that are pleading for a bright pink bedroom or you’re looking for a way to incorporate a deep red into the living room, an accent wall can make it just as colorful without it becoming an overpowering decision that you regret down the road.

Designate a Focal Point

While a focal point isn’t something that every room needs to have, it’s a design element that can add quite a bit to a room. If there’s a particular part of the room that you want people’s eyes to be drawn to, painting it a different color is sure to do that. For bedrooms, accent walls can help draw the eye to the head of the bed or decor that’s hanging on the wall opposite of the bed. In living rooms, this is a great wall to place the couch or the entertainment center. Truthfully, there are so many ways that you can use an accent wall to your advantage in terms of making it a focal point.

Create Separation

While many accent walls are intended to be purely for design, one of the more unique reasons that accent walls are used is to create separation without having to do any construction. In most modern homes, the open floor concept is trendy but, when you’re trying to design each part of your house uniquely, it can be challenging to do. One of the best ways to keep the flow open while still creating some separation is by adding an accent wall. The block of color makes it much easier to distinguish where one section ends and the next begins.

Different Types of Epoxy Flooring

0 Comments

Epoxy flooring has many advantages. It has a high gloss finish that brightens a room. It’s a hard surface to withstand heavy foot traffic. Epoxy flooring is durable, easy to clean, and resists oils and spills. Epoxy flooring is low maintenance, long-lasting, and can be combined with paint chips to create a seamless surface that is stunning and gorgeous in appearance. Besides all of the advantages to epoxy floors, did you know there are many different types of epoxy flooring? Painting Plus of Colorado installs epoxy flooring as well as paints residential and commercial homes and businesses. Below, we’ll list a few of the many different types of epoxy flooring. Contact us today for our epoxy flooring specials!

DIFFERENT TYPES OF EPOXY FLOORING

  • Self-leveling epoxy flooring. The name of this type of epoxy flooring says it all. Used primarily over old and damaged floors, self-leveling is used to make a floor level because you can adjust the amount of epoxy you pour in different areas. Popular in kitchens, bathrooms, and industrial warehouses, self-leveling epoxy flooring comes in a variety of colors to meet your flooring needs.
  • Epoxy mortar flooring. Using the strongest of epoxy flooring, the 100 percent solid epoxy, epoxy mortar flooring also uses quartz sand. Ideal for flooring that sees a lot of impact, epoxy mortar flooring is popular in warehouses, restaurants, and manufacturing plants.
  • Quartz-filled epoxy flooring. Epoxy resin and quartz grain combine to create a slip-resistant, decorative space. Quartz-filled epoxy flooring is ideal for locker rooms, cafeterias, and schools.
  • Anti-Static Epoxy Floors (otherwise known as Electro-Static Charge (ESD) Resistant Floors). These floors are specifically designed to disperse static electricity that may build up in flooring. Essential for healthcare facilities or chemical manufacturing facilities, this epoxy flooring makes workplaces safe.
  • Epoxy flake floors. Using vibrant chips or flakes within the epoxy, this epoxy flooring can use any color and create any pattern, style or textures. Epoxy flake floors are the fastest growing type of epoxy flooring for both residential and commercial flooring purposes since the colors and styles are unique, memorable, and beautiful. Painting Plus of Colorado uses this type of epoxy flooring to create custom blends and styles to suit your needs.

The Different Types of Epoxy Flooring Coating

0 Comments

Like your roof, your floors are integral to the structure of your home. They overlay the foundation of your home and provide a nice surface to walk upon. Choosing a flooring type is a big decision for a home or business. You want a floor that is durable, long-lasting, easy to maintain, safe to walk (or run) on, looks great, and won’t break the bank. Epoxy floors fit this bill to a tee. Painting Plus of Colorado, a local residential and commercial painting contractor that serves Fort Collins, Boulder, and Longmont, now offers epoxy flooring coating. Below, we’ll go over the three types of epoxy flooring coating to help you decide which is best for you. Contact us today for a free estimate!

DIFFERENT TYPES OF EPOXY FLOORING COATINGS

Epoxy is a combined resin and hardener, that when applied to a flooring surface, creates a hard, durable, smooth surface that can withstand heavy loads. Epoxy flooring coating has been popular for many years as a coating for concrete in commercial and industrial uses, such as warehouses, industrial sites, and commercial buildings. Epoxy flooring coating is easy to maintain and a great surface for workers and equipment. It is now gaining ground in the residential flooring industry as well due to its many advantages.

Epoxy flooring coating comes in three varieties: water-based, solvent-based epoxy, and 100 percent solid epoxy. All three types are installed in the same way where epoxy is laid out on the floor where it levels out and hardens in a process known as pot life (or curing). The main difference between the three types of epoxy flooring is the thickness, which impacts the durability of the epoxy floors.

  1. Solvent-based epoxy. Shinier than water-based, solvent-based epoxy flooring coating is popular with businesses because it’s more durable, offers more protection from chemical spills, and lasts longer. However, it does emit fumes throughout your interior space, making it ideal for garages where ventilation is good and less time is spent, as well as in industrial spaces. Solvent-based epoxy is governed by state and federal regulations since it does contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), making it less popular today as more and more people are seeking environmentally-friendly alternatives.
  2. Water-based epoxy. Non-toxic and safe, water-based epoxy is gaining popularity because it is environmentally friendly and recent improvements have been made to improve its durability and stain resistance; however, it is still not quite up to par for commercial and industrial uses. It can be applied to concrete while it is curing (still wet).
  3. Solid epoxy flooring. Solid epoxy contains no water or solvent. This makes it extremely thick, eco-friendly, safe, and scratch and dent-resistant. Popular amongst business owners, solid epoxy flooring is stain-resistance with little maintenance. Its drawback is it’s more expensive than its counterparts, and solid epoxy flooring coating dries very quickly — in 30 to 40 minutes. However, since it can last up to 20 years, solid epoxy floor coating is a great investment for the long run.

Water and solvents make the epoxy easier to apply, assist with adhesion, and can help with levelling. Once the resin and the hardener are mixed together, the clock starts ticking on the pot life. The water and solvents extend the pot life from 30 minutes with a solid epoxy to up to two hours for a water or solvent-based epoxy. This is because the water and solvent evaporate as the epoxy dries.

Painting Plus of Colorado offers epoxy flooring coating for your residential, commercial, or industrial uses. We’ll help you decide which epoxy flooring coating will work for you. We use color chips, which results in unlimited colors, blends, and patterns, so you’ll have a custom epoxy flooring solution. Contact us today for our epoxy flooring coating specials!

Top 3 Accents for Epoxy Flooring

0 Comments

Epoxy flooring is something most of us take for granted — unless your toddler spills milk all over the floor. Besides the weekly cleaning, epoxy flooring is what it is — a place to walk. However, by adding accent items throughout your home, you’ll highlight your epoxy floors and make it a place to be admired in your home and a place you and your toddler will want to play on together (and not spill!). Painting Plus of Colorado specializes in residential painting and commercial painting projects. But did you know we’ve recently added epoxy floor coating to our repertoire of services?

WHAT IS EPOXY FLOORS?

You can think of epoxy floors as a floor paint on steroids. It’s a superior floor coating made up of polymer resins and hardeners — very similar to epoxy glue. The epoxy resin and hardener, when applied to flooring, creates a strong chemical bond, forming a hard plastic material. Epoxy flooring bonds well to concrete. Prevalent in commercial and industrial uses, epoxy flooring is becoming popular in residences (especially garage floors) for its durability, appearance, longevity, and affordability.

TOP 3 ACCENTS FOR EPOXY FLOORING

  1. Add color to the epoxy flooring itself. One of the reasons epoxy flooring is booming in popularity is because of the variety of epoxy flooring options and colors you can create. Painting Plus of Colorado uses color chips (also known as flakes or flecks) to create gorgeous patterns, colors, and blends. You can create, unique epoxy flooring with any color combination and size of chips to make your epoxy the focal point of your chosen room.
  2. Lighting. Light has been shown to affect mood, and the right light can either make a room bright and inviting or dull and dreary. When you have a professionally installed epoxy floor coating applied to your floors by a company such as Painting Plus of Colorado, you can choose lighting to accent your floors. Floor lamps are great for generating mood, such as relaxing and cozy to nostalgic and romantic. Overhead lighting can be a great accent as well, such as a chandelier, to accent your flooring. Consider your flooring during the day and the night, as a cute, dinosaur night light may be just the final touch you need for your new epoxy flooring coating.
  3. Rugs. Rugs are powerful accents when used correctly. Plus, many people love a warm floor on a cold night in the middle of winter. Depending on the color you chose for your color chips in your epoxy floors, you’ll want to choose a rug that is not too big to overwhelm the room and one whose colors complement your flooring and not clash or overwhelm as well. You may want a solid rug instead of a pattern rug, depending on the intricacy of your color chips. Consulting an interior designer can help or your mother-in-law who loves Pinterest and knows the best complementary colors. Furthermore, consider the room your rug will be placed in. If it’s a room with a lot of foot traffic, odds are you don’t want a shag rug that will collect dirt and pet hair rather easily.

If you’re looking to add a flawless, smooth, and elegant shine to your flooring, than an epoxy floor coating is the solution. Painting Plus of Colorado is proud to serve the Front Range with interior and exterior residential painting services as well as interior and exterior commercial painting services. We are excited to be adding epoxy floor coatings to our service line and are eager to begin making your floors as beautiful as your walls. Upgrade your plain concrete floors and improve the ambiance of a home or office by calling Painting Plus of Colorado and installing epoxy flooring coating today!

Four Ways to Build Your Home’s Value Through Painting

0 Comments

When you’re preparing your home to sell, it’s critical you think about what your home looks like from a buyer’s perspective. While we may be biased as a Fort Collins painting company, we think a fresh paint job to your home’s interior and exterior can set you up for success.

One of the best things about paint is that your return on investment is relatively high. It’s won’t cost you as much as a new roof or an expensive bathroom remodel. This is especially true if your painting contractor has reasonable rates and does the job right the first time — which is exactly what you’ll find at Painting Plus.

What Can I Paint to Increase the Value of My Home? 

Here are some painting projects that can help raise the value of your home, so you can get the price you deserve when you try to sell. It can also help increase the appeal to renters as well.

Front Door

The front door is the way people enter their home. This is an extremely important focal point and having an attractively painted front door can do loads for raising the value of your home.

Zillow, the online real estate giant, did research in 2018 that showed you can boost the sale price of your home by 2.9 percent by painting it black. This is quite a large boost — it covers a lot of the sale price you’d lose to the real estate agent’s commission. Of course, keep in mind the rest of your color scheme as well.

Bathroom

An attractive bathroom is a huge selling point for home buyers. A bathroom is the one room in your home where you get the most privacy — usually.

If your bathroom has cool colors and a relaxing atmosphere, that’s sure to be a hit at the open house.

Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchens are a big selling point when it comes to homes. If your kitchen cabinets are looking a little worse for the wear, this can be an especially attractive option if you don’t have the money to replace them.

Cabinets that compliment the paint job of your kitchen can give an immense boost to its aesthetic value — and more importantly, its sale price.

Exterior

There are few things that do more to adding value to your home than increasing the curb appeal. Curb appeal is simply how attractive your home looks when viewed from the street. When you have potential buyers walk up to your home, you want to hook them from the start.

Painting Plus Can Make Your Home More Marketable

We hope you’ve found these home painting tips valuable. As your Fort Collins painting company of choice, Painting Plus’ residential painters are constantly looking for ways to provide greater value for our clients.
