NYC Condo Painter

This Manhattan client was looking to refresh their living space going into the Spring and we were happy they called us. We love painting in historic buildings and this building was no exception. Complete with a hand operated elevator this 100+ year old apartment took extra time and attention painting around the original marble fireplace. The room has many large windows and the White Dove color chosen was a perfect fit with the walls and moldings. Being a painting contractor in the Gramercy Park neighborhood we greatly enjoy painting on Lexington Avenue, Park Avenue, and surrounding streets.

NYC Furnace Cover Painter

This client was looking to brighten up their new home. In the process of painting the the entire interior of their Manhattan apartment we noticed how large and dark the radiator covers were in the bedroom and living room. We took the front panels off and sprayed them with an HVLP spray machine. We then careful masked around the floor and windows before spraying the built in pieces. The difference is drastic and really helped bring the room together. It was an important detail in the grand scheme. The room feels more modern now and the client is happy!

Manhattan Interior Painting Contractor

Painting in TriBeCa is always a fun experience. TriBeCa, which stands for "Triangle Below Canal Street," sports a past meets present vibe. Architecturally significant buildings exhibit art deco, cast iron and beaux arts features. Interestingly, there are also comfortable urban chic vibes in and around the shopping and dining scenes where small business owners often know customers by name. It's cozy; it's gorgeous. Besides the smell of bread baking and an uncluttered environment, freshly painted walls and sparkling clean grout contribute mightily to those coveted positive first impressions of home buyers. In a real estate market where most prices have seven digits left of the decimal point, first impressions are v.e.r.y  i.m.p.o.r.t.a.n.t. And that's why Paintworks & Decorating was contacted - to freshly paint and newly grout a condo interior before being listed for sale.

 The area was beautiful around this large, 3-BR home, and the seller chose white for its universal appeal. The interior almost instantly brightened under the experienced Paintworks hands expertly maneuvering paint brushes, rollers and grout trowels. White is clean and fresh and reflects maximum light for a spacious interior feel. Additionally, any prospective buyer can visualize art, furnishings and fabric in pastel colors, bold and beautiful hues or more shades of neutral tones complementing the simplicity of white. We also re-grouted all the bathroom tile sprucing up those spaces. Paintworks doesn't share in any commission for the sale, but we know we were an important part of the process.

Co-op Interior Painting Manhattan

This client called us days before closing on a home in the historic west village area of Manhattan. We love that he chose to go with a light gray for trim and against the off white walls. It’s a nice contrast that is unique. We were able to get co-op approval extremely fast and paint before he moved in.

Refreshing Kitchen Cabinets in NYC

This client just moved into a new apartment and was looking for a way to brighten their kitchen. The cabinets were in great shape but the dark color wasn’t matching the new home vibe that they were looking for. We stepped in to paint the cabinets with Benjamin Moore White Dove semi-gloss to give the kitchen a quick makeover with minimal amount of disturbance for the client. The cabinets look brand new. We are always grateful for paint cabinets in Midtown East Manhattan.

Battery Park Condo Painter

Before this homeowner listed her home for sell she wanted to freshen up the place for prospective buyers. We started by removing all the wallpaper in this Downtown Manhattan condo. Once that was done we cleaned off the glue residue, primed and painted the whole place. We then refinished the flooring to really make the place sparkle. Refinishing the hardwood floor was the final step to making this apartment ready to fetch a higher price tag. With the big windows and the fresh paint the place feels bigger.

NYC New Home Move-In Painter

When you move into a new place it’s important to take the time to make it feel like your home. If you have the luxury of time, doing home improvement before you move in is the perfect moment to customize your place. Paintworks and Decorating helped these new homeowner’s personalize their new Manhattan home by painting with a splash of color. The new color looks great against the Decorator’s White trim and ceiling. A little contrast goes a long way.

Choosing Paint Colors To Sell or Rent A Property in New York

Staging a home or warming cinnamon on the stove are good measures to selling your home, but painting the large expanses of walls delivers a long-term appeal to prospective buyers as well as renters. Preparing to sell and for tenant turnover are perfect times to paint.

 Neutral is the keyword, and Paintworks & Decorating can guide your selections and professionally transform your interior or exterior spaces. The fresh, crisp, newness of white and warmth of cream in myriad choices permits prospective buyers to visualize art and furnishings, as well as potential accent walls. Halstead, a premier regional real estate and property management company, contracts with Paintworks frequently with a preference for "Decorator's White" for interiors.

Variations of gray are ideal for the sleek, modern, industrial feel. Misty pewter and pale silver lend an elegant emotion to any space. Moving into taupe, the gray tones integrate gentle, earthy browns. Light latte and dusty ranch browns emit an agreeable hue wherein home buyers and renters in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx can comfortably bring their favorite colors and furnishings into the mind's eye. Home buyers and prospective tenants touring neutral color rooms have a visual advantage to let their imagination run wild.

The Bold Blue Den - Manhattan Apartment Painting

Stepping out, being bold and taking a risk can be applied to homeownership as well as interior colors. Buying property is adulting at its peak, making a serious investment and becoming an integral community member. Color is one of the most powerful tools in the homeowner's toolbox without a cord or battery pack. It can create mood, enlarge or shrink the perception of space and stimulate the senses.

New homeowners in Manhattan's Upper East Side recently contracted with locally-owned Paintworks & Decorating to color their new crib. One room especially evokes an eyebrow-lifting wow factor for its monochromatic blue theme. The walls, trim and doors are all smoothly coated with a brave medium dusky blue that tinges the horizon just before sunrise or sunset begins to glow. The space evokes the warmth of your favorite blue jeans coupled with a sense of adventure like riding waves at Rockaway Beach or bouldering in Central Park.

 As daylight changes, lighting alters color, and what looks one way under fluorescent lighting can appear darker, lighter or more yellow or red near large windows. The experienced home painters at Paintworks & Decorating are experts with paint and coloring, having long ago traded in crayons for brushes and paint rollers.

West Village Apartment Painter

We love painting in the West Village and were excited to paint a large 2 bedroom apartment there in April. The client is an artist who wanted to add some color to her place. We painted multiple accent walls including one behind the piano to give the piano a feel that it was a part  of the wall. The shine of the piano really pops in front of the black matte. We painted the wall directly to the right of the piano to match the fireplace backsplash. It transformed the room. We painted the kitchen with Benjamin Moore Kitchen & Bath black matte to help withstand the heat and other kitchen elements. Overall it was a very fun project. The client is happy after not painting the apartment in over 8 years.

Farrow & Ball Floor Painter

This apartment inside a converted commercial building has space for such unique possibilities. This couple wanted to liven up their dinged up white wood floor. We started by cleaning the entire floor then put a primer on top. After it dried we applied the first coat of Farrow & Ball paint. After it dried we applied a second coat. You can see the difference in the middle picture. The finished product looks smooth and sleek and goes perfectly with their new kitchen cabinets and furniture. Paint has so many possibilities and capabilities. Instead of refinishing their floor they gave it a unique color and new life. We loved the opportunity to be apart of this creative remodel!

Chelsea, Manhattan Interior Painting

It was a snowy day in February when these new homeowners called us looking to paint their new place with some bold colors. They had a very tight timeframe as they had to be out of their old apartment in just 2 days. We were able to see them the same day they called us and start/finish the very next day. It was a great challenge painting their 15 foot ceilings. Their color choices were unique and colorful and matched their personalities well. It was cool to be a part of such a well designed apartment in the sleek Chelsea area.
