Washington Heights Apartment Painters

One homeowner felt her stomach churn every time she set foot in this eccentric lime green hallway. We like making people happy in their interior environments and were only too happy ourselves to rid her of the discomfort. There's an extra effort involved in covering dark colors, knowing precisely when the coats of paint are adequate to prevent any of the darker color beneath it to permeate even a fleck of this sour green hue. The lady was very pleased with the outcome using Benjamin Moore’s Ballet White paint. Her hallway is now clean and crisp, and she's feeling much more calm, cool and collected in her space.

Gramercy Park Retrofit Full Bath to Powder Room

When our jobs extend beyond painting, we step right up to listen, understand, work and deliver what the homeowner specifies. Here we had a bathroom project which included removing a shower, walls and floor tiles at the outset. The homeowner wanted to convert a full bath into a half bath, while keeping the plumbing in place and shower body for reversing everything if a new owner wants to in the future.

 Structo-Lite® Basecoat Plaster, a lightweight, insulated, basecoat gypsum plaster with thermal conductivity, was used to level the walls before installing new porcelain tiles. We installed and centered a new sink, plus mirror, lighting and toilet. It's now a modern, sleek little half-bath with light industrial undertones.

NYC Kitchen Cabinets Professionally Renovated

We recently connected with a homeowner in the Washington Square neighborhood with a keen eye for creatively brightening the kitchen. Dark cabinets can create the illusion of a small space appearing smaller still, and this gentleman wanted lighter and brighter paired with interesting. Thus, the Chelsea Gray semi-gloss on the lower cabinets was complemented with Pure White on the top ones and the backsplash. 

We carefully disassembled the doors to be spray painted off site, while cautiously painting the cabinet structure and backsplash right in place. All the paint products were Benjamin Moore, founded in New York City in 1883 and known for its high quality. The homeowner's vision was achieved, and we were mightily pleased ourselves with the outcome once the doors were transported back and re-installed. It is indeed lighter, brighter and interesting. Mission accomplished.

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.

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.
