Painting NYC Homes To Sell or Rent Fast

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.

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.

Brooklyn Interior Painting

It's hard to beat the views of the water and the Manhattan skyline from this Williamsburg apartment. The tenants had just moved out and the owner was looking for refresh the space before the new tenants moved in. It is always fun to paint apartments in Brooklyn that have this type of view. After we plastered all holes and cracks we proceeded to paint the entire apartment in Benjamin Moore White. The giant living room windows let in tons of light that make the space look large and inviting. We were able to paint the whole place in 2 days right before the new tenants moved in. The owner had a tight timeframe and we were able to complete the move in/move out home painting just in time.

NYC Loft Painter

One of the biggest reasons we love painting homes in the NYC area is because each home is a unique challenge. This challenge was painting a beautiful loft in Greenwich Village. The client just had the floors refinished and needed the walls and ceiling to match the new modern look. The clean white walls makes for a great contrast with the floor. The refreshed walls and ceilings look great with the sunlight coming in through the huge windows in this loft. We love the style of the loft with the bed elevated over the kitchen. It was fun to paint such a modern space.

Move-In Painting

We love painting home interiors in Long Island City with all the new buildings and the gorgeous views of the Manhattan skyline. We painted this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with a few different colors and we really like the finished product's contrast. The top picture is of the living room painted with Benjamin Moore's Gray Owl. The white trim and doors really pop next to the modern gray colored walls. The picture below is of the bathroom wall painted with Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy. The dark blue looks great next to the white tile. Notice the sharp line between wall and ceiling in the bathroom. A clean look that we are proud of.

Bronx Interior Painting

We recently painted a 2 bedroom apartment in the beautiful Riverdale area of the Bronx. The client wanted a refreshed looked on their apartment. The previous paint job was done 11 years ago and was looking very outdated. The new look goes great the abundance of natural light and their modern couches. We love meeting new clients and painting homes all over NYC, it makes us feel connected to the community. If you're looking for wall design or wall color ideas, don't hesitate to give us a call to set up a free in-home consultation. As local Riverdale painters, we could talk about walls, ceilings, baseboards, crown molding, and doors all day everyday.
