Simple ways to modernize the interior of your home
Whatever kind of home you have, whether it is a few years old or a hundred years old, modernizing can be a daunting task. Even knowing where to start can be confusing.
Today’s trend is for monotone walls, often grey, with simple, clean white trim, and this alone will offer a very new look for your home. However, there is more that you can do for yourself that work well on their own, or even better with our high-quality paintwork.
The first thing you can do is look around your home for details that date your décor, a gold light switch plate for instance will stand out to anyone looking around, but may be something you just get used to over time. Swapping them out for clean white plates, or something to compliment your décor, will have an immediate effect and create the cohesive deign look that everyone loves.
It is not just the light switches that can date your home, lighting itself tends to be very much ‘of its time, in that you can often tell when a house was built or last remodeled just by looking at the light fittings themselves. By updating ceiling lights, sconces and bathroom fittings to more modern equivalents, you not only create a more modern look very quickly, but with new lighting technology, you could save energy or overall improved lighting that shows off your rooms better.
Materials are another area that can make a difference. Switching from an old carpet to a new one, or a wooden floor, can transform a room, especially if the carpet is worn, or even if it is just a pattern or color that is somewhat dated. While this is definitely a bigger change than others mentioned, it does work very well and is well worth thinking about.
The kitchen is the heart of your home, and you are probably thinking that a new kitchen is just too much hassle and expense for a home makeover. But that does not mean you have to leave it as it is. Today we are able to offer a complete kitchen refinishing service that will transform the look of your kitchen, helping you create the modern look you are after. And because we can create this new look by refinishing your existing kitchen, it is done quickly, efficiently and very cost effectively too.
Our professional painters can bring your kitchen right up to date, working with you to choose the colors and finishes that match your dreams. Clean lines and subdued color is the trend right now, but you may prefer bold and bright, however whatever you choose will look like a brand-new kitchen, created for you in just 3 days.
With a kitchen transformed into a modern style, and a few changes to lighting and materials, you can modernize your home much faster and for a lot less money than you ever thought. Clever use of color and style really do make a difference, and best of all, no need to throw that favorite chair away, cover it with a throw to match the new décor, and it will blend in with the modern style of the rest of your home.
The Why and When Elastromeric Paint is best
Living on the Treasure Coast, or in any other coastal town, you have to take into account the sea air, as well as the water density in the air. While this causes havoc for most folk’s hair, it can also lead to damp issues within our homes.
At Jaworski Painting, being expert exterior house painters, we understand paint, and more importantly, we understand the Florida region. With many successful projects completed in the Port Saint Lucie area, we are the right painters when it comes to new or refurbishment jobs.
To ensure that our paint jobs for the exterior of your house stand the test of time, we often suggest using Elastromeric paint. Now, you may be frowning right now, wondering what this sort of paint is, well, no worries, we are here to educate you on this amazing product.
The Benefits of Using Elastromeric Paint
Elastromeric paint is very carefully engineered to create a barrior between water and the surface of your walls. Generally, one would apply the paint to non-chalky surfaces, such as concrete or masonry construction.
Outside water, whether from the air, clouds, or garden sprinklers, can cause disasters for the interior of your house. If your walls are not sealed properly, you could land up with damp issues, or worse yet, constant wet interior walls and floors.
It is best, if at all possible, to have this paint applied when first building, and preferably in dryer weather.
Mildew and Dirt Free
This super paint is both resistant to mildew, as well as dirt, two agents that can cause great health issues, especially in the young.
Hairline Cracks be Gone
Settling cracks, that appear as hairline marks in your walls can be a real eyesore, and have the potential to grow into more. But, with the Elastromeric paint application, you will not see these lines. The flexible and nature of the consistency of this paint ensures that all these small cracks are covered up. It, in fact, seals and protects at the same time.
Houses expand in the winter and summer, and it stands to reason that this will cause the building to bend and shape. The polymer in Elastromeric paint, called elastomer, has a great elasticity and viscosity. As your house expands and contracts, so will the paint, meaning less cracks, and the possibility of future structural issues. It literally moves like rubber.
While you may not stay in your house until you die or pass it on to a child, it is comforting to know that the exterior will be protected for many years. In fact, with 2 coats of general acrylic paint, your house walls can be guaranteed for up to 10 years. With Elastromeric paint, you can expect many more years to be added to that guarantee.
While the Treasure Coast does not have very extreme weather conditions, it is good to know that Elastromeric paint is sun fading resistant, a real blocker to heat, and cold, and heavy rain driven by wind. These natural conditions can be very taxing on, not only the structure of a house, but also the paintwork. But, this awesome paint really has been built for any weather condition.
So, you can see now why we are a lover of this type of paint for all exterior surfaces. Port Saint Lucie residents are very familiar with our work ethic and code, and many too are familiar with one of our favorite exterior house paints, Elastromeric.
In addition, the manner in which we manage the entire project, from prep work to finishing touches, is professional and speedy. We understand that to have workers constantly in your space, even when on the outside of your home, is a real intrusion of privacy. We pride ourselves on moving in and out in the least amount of time needed to complete a perfect job.
So, stop and consider Elastromeric paint for your exterior house painting project.
Our Review On The 3M Accuspray Paint Gun System
Along the Treasure Coast of Florida we have built quite a reputation for refinishing and painting kitchen cabinets, and we are very proud of that. Being able to transform a kitchen while helping our clients save significantly on the cost of new makes good sense and the results, even we say it ourselves, are spectacular. Often when we discuss painting and refinishing kitchen cabinets, the level of transformation of any kitchen is often underestimated, in reality, refinishing can offer any kind of result imaginable. Maybe you wish to go for a French country style, where refinishing can offer a crackled, aged look that is incredibly realistic. Today’s refinishing goes way beyond a change of paint color.
All throughout Port Saint Lucie Jaworski Painting have created unique, beautiful kitchens, doing our best to make ideas and dreams become reality for our customers wherever possible. We are always pushing the limits of the materials and tools available to us, whether that is paint itself or the tools our painters use.
To continually offer the range of choice and quality we believe every one of our customers deserve, we often look for new ways to improve our service, whether that is new techniques or tools. Technology is always moving forward, and the paint industry is no different, which is why we recently purchased a new 3M Accuspray Paint Gun System to enhance our service.
This is an amazing HVLP spray gun, means High Volume Low Pressure, essentially it puts out a lot of paint even using low air pressure when spraying. The advantage of that is simply that it puts more paint where you want it, and less into the air that eventually settles and is what we all know as overspray. Being able to use lower pressures is really beneficial in enclosed spaces such as a kitchen, it’s easier for painters, the paint finish is smoother and there is less cleanup required afterwards. The Accuspray system offers several other benefits for both ourselves and customers too, easy clean nozzles mean color changes are much faster, and the range of nozzle sizes not only allows a range of different products to be sprayed, but also helps with the creation of effects should customers require them.
Because of easy change of nozzle size and cleaning, applying more than one paint type or color is much more practical, and allows us to create new ways of refinishing kitchen cabinets to turn our customers wishes into reality. Paint flows more smoothly, and the painters have a much lighter tool to work with that gives them the ability to be even more creative, while the reduced overspray and tight spray patters possible with the new spray gun ensure that less masking and less cleanup are needed.
With this new spray gun and the opportunity to innovate that it gives us, we believe that our refinishing service for kitchen cabinets is simply the best available for Port Saint Lucie and all over the Treasure Coast in Florida. No matter what kind of look you want for a kitchen, we will create something unique that matches your vision, with minimal fuss and much less expense than a kitchen replacement.
Bringing your vision to life is the best part of what we do, and now with the new tool, we are sure that we can be even more adventurous when creating the kitchen of your dreams.
