Basement Wood Paneling Spraying

This client was looking to updated their wood paneled basement with a fresh start. We love spraying projects and were happy to jump on board. After covering the floors with brown construction paper we began spraying the paneling with Fresh Start Primer. After 2 coats of primer we moved to the finish coats. 2 coats of finish had this basement feeling renewed. It brightened up the space and gave the basement a more contemporary feel. The finished looks great. We paint it all!

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.

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.

Beautiful Jade Green Cabinet Painting in NYC

It's a bird, it's a plane. No, it's a plant, it's a mineral, it's a paint color! Jade the plant and jade the mineral are known the world over for its rich shades of lush green. And as a paint color, it makes a bold statement on kitchen cupboards in West Village. Here, among the historical buildings and hipster culture, one homeowner decided up raise the bar on kitchen renovation by having us at Paintworks & Decorating refinish the cabinet doors and drawer fronts in a jade green.

It's a balancing act of protecting adjacent rooms, appliances, furniture and other kitchen accoutrements while covering the old finish with the new bright jade green. We are experienced in removing all the kitchen cabinet doors to an off-site location for this triple application of a lacquer kind of paint, while carefully handling the cupboard infrastructure or webbing and drawer fronts in the home. All the hardware and drawer pulls also get taken off and stored during the process. We sand lightly between coats on everything being painted, and this special paint then dries to a hard surface, adding to its lustrous look and smooth touch.

West Village is the perfect place for jade kitchen cupboards for its eclectic style and multi-cultural population. Green is, after all, the most common color in the world for Mother Nature's presence, and what better way to bring a little of the outdoors inside? We thought the result was as stunning as some of the real estate prices in the neighborhood, but we also embrace the brilliant idea of protecting one's investment with a wild splash of jade green for refreshing a kitchen.

Gramercy Park Home Painter

In effort to sell this property in a timely fashion Halstead Realty and the owners decided to freshen up the place with a paint job so the property would show better. The NYC apartment hadn’t been painted in over 20 years and it showed. One day of intense plastering and painting got the condo back to near mint condition. The client chose Benjamin Moore Decorator’s White which works perfectly with the condo’s large living room windows. We always use Benjamin Moore Aura Bath and Spa in the bathroom to help protect the walls and ceiling from heat and humidity. We’re always grateful and happy to paint in the beautiful Union Square area.

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.

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.

NYC Interior Painter

After living in their condo for 2 years this client wanted to refresh the place with new colors, patched holes, to make the place feel new again.

The super of the building recently removed the non-working intercom phone leaving a gapping hole in the living room wall. We were able to completely patch and plaster the hole so you can’t even tell it was there in the first place. After caulking around the windows and plastering the other cracks the place was ready for painting. Using fresh rollers and proper technique we repainted their accent wall to show seamless color. The previous paint job showed major flashings which distracted the eye from the tv the wall was situated on. We painted the bathroom with Benjamin Moore Aura Bath & Spa to ensure longevity in the hot humid environment that is a bathroom. Always grateful to paint beautiful Upper West Side apartments.

Painting A Condo Near Prospect Park

When this family called us they were looking to refresh their condo before doing some redecorating. With young children in the household the walls of the entryway were showing wear and tear. Lots of scuff marks and dirt/oil build up on the walls from constant touching and activity. We painted the entire Prospect Heights apartment, making it look new again. We painted the entryway walls with Benjamin Moore Scuff-X to help protect the walls. With the abundance of natural light in the living room, the Benjamin Moore Aura Super White looks great and super clean. We love painting homes in Prospect Heights. Each home is so unique which matches the eclectic surrounding area. We are honored to be a top painter in the Prospect Heights area.

Painting Historic Ornamental Railings in Upper West Side, Manhattan

The Upper West Side of Manhattan is home to beautiful designed buildings with ornate and historic details. When this client contacted us they were looking to revive their historic ornamental second floor railing. It was rusting and in need of rescuing. As experience exterior metal painters in NYC we first covered the ground below and behind the railing. We spent the first day grinding off rust and failing coatings. When grinding historic and beautiful railings it is important not to rush. Each curve of the railing needs to be considered. After grinding we applied the great product Rust Destroyer which eliminates rust while also providing a base coat on the metal. Last step we painted the railing with 2 finish coats of UV resistant industrial coatings. It was quite a joy to see the beautiful finished product. We are grateful to be one of the go-to painting companies when it comes to grinding and painting metal railings in Manhattan.

Park Slope Home Painter

Painting in Park Slope is such an exciting experience due the gorgeous and well maintained brownstones that fill this area. We love painting brownstones inside and out. This client contacted us to repaint their garden apartment for their long time renters. The most challenging part was to paint the beautiful molding around the windows. Luckily our team has vast experience painting Park Slope homes. We used a satin finish on the trim and moldings to give it contrast against the matte finished walls. When painting Brooklyn townhouses we have to keep in mind of the historic details. The goal is to highlight the molding not to cover it up. In the end the client and our team was happy with the freshly painted interior.
