There’s a chill in the air, and that means it’s time to think about returning to the great indoors for the winter and holiday season. As much as our homes are a part of our daily lives, they take center stage in the upcoming holiday season:

Our homes become the backdrop of our treasured holiday memories, the place we welcome our friends and family to celebrate these special times together.

These moments are sneaking up quickly, so we want to share some common indoor painting updates for winter that we can help take off your to-do list!


Projects that are popular in the fall and winter:

  • Painting walls and ceilings
  • Drywall repair
  • Removing wallpaper
  • Painting trim
  • Painting cabinets
  • Painting banisters


Painting walls

This two-story living room makes a dramatic statement in Sherwin Williams SW6244 Naval

Painting in rooms with high ceilings, like foyers and two-story living rooms. Make sure the entrance of your home welcomes your guests with a fresh feeling that fits you and your home. We can help you choose a color for your foyer that is classic, natural, bright, dark, dramatic… anything you want!

Gathering and entertaining spaces, especially around kitchens, dining rooms, and family rooms. It’s surprising how dirty the walls of a kitchen can get – and as the heart of the home it always seems to be the gathering place for holiday parties! Think of painting the walls with a color that accents your current cabinetry and countertops, or make a full change and paint the kitchen cabinets, too!

Guest bedrooms for welcoming overnight visitors. We know you probably don’t think of this room often, but here’s your reminder to give it a quick update with a new coat of paint! It’s a great place to try a new color you have been thinking of for your home. Your guests will appreciate the look, and you can see what a color looks like in your home!


Removing wallpaper

This kitchen got rid of the dated wallpaper but still feels fun in Sherwin Williams SW9135 Whirlpool!

We know how it goes – you’ve lived with that old wallpaper for so long and you dread removing it so you don’t do anything about it. Good call – done improperly, wallpaper removal can cause drywall damage that’s difficult to repair. Our professional painters have the tools (and patience!) to properly remove wallpaper, and then sand and skim coat any needed areas. After a fresh coat of paint to update the room, you’ll feel like you have a brand new home!


Drywall repair

Patch drywall holes and blemishes. Take care of those imperfections on your walls that we overlook in daily life. Our painting crews can fix holes in drywall from accidents and mistakes so that it looks like it never happened!

Ceiling repairs and matching ceiling texture. Ceilings can get missed as we consider updating the home, but old water leaks and stains can make an otherwise beautiful room feel old and in need of attention. We can paint over stains using special primers and paint products, and we can match existing ceiling textures if needed so that repairs blend seamlessly.



Trim Painting

Painting the wood trim in a bright white made a huge difference  – it’s immediately brighter and looks like new!

Painting over stained wood trim. Shorter winter days can really remind us that our home feels darker than we want it to, and a great option to help this is to paint over stained wood trim in your home. Going from stained wood trim to painted wood trim is part science and part art – and the right tools and experience make all the difference! Our professional painters know the right products to use and application techniques needed to give you a smooth and long-lasting finish. You’ll be surprised to see the difference this change makes in your home! Those previously dark corners suddenly feel bright and cheerful, and you find yourself enjoying your home in a whole new light.



Cabinet Painting

We spend so much time in our kitchens in the holiday season – make sure you love where you’re cooking! This kitchen worked well but the homeowner wanted an update – it looks great!

Painting kitchen cabinets.

There can’t be a faster way to make a huge update to your home than this! Kitchen cabinets get so much use, and at this time of year they become the background of our holiday parties and family memories. A kitchen renovation can be incredibly disruptive and expensive, but we can help you achieve a similar result in just a few days… and typically for much less money! The process of painting kitchen cabinets is more intense than other painting projects, and our painters have years of experience painting cabinetry to achieve as close as possible to a factory perfect finish.

Our cabinet painting process was developed to be efficient and leave you with a kitchen you can be proud of!

Painting kitchen islands, sometimes in an accent color.

If you’re not ready to paint the entire kitchen, think of just updating your kitchen island cabinetry! Many of our customers choose to use an accent color on the kitchen islands that is different from the rest of the kitchen cabinets.

Painting bathroom cabinets.

Don’t forget about the hardworking cabinets in the bathrooms that we so easily overlook. If you’re painting other cabinets in the home, it’s a great time to update the bathroom cabinets at the same time!

The wood built-ins made this room look dated, but painting them white makes it look completely different. Think of all the potential for seasonal decorating on these shelves!

Built-in bookshelves.
Painting mudroom cabinets or laundry room cabinets.

Our families sure can abuse the cabinets in a mudroom or laundry room! Over the years, they take a beating and they can start to show it. Think of going with a darker color in these spaces to help hide the dirt, mud, and fingerprints of daily life.





Painting banisters and stair railings

On banisters, some people like the look of wood handrails with white spindles, like in the before picture, and some homeowners like everything painted – either way, we can make it happen!

Often a focal point of an entryway, stairs can make a stunning entrance to your home… or they can make even a freshly painted room look dated. Painting stair rails and banisters is a popular way to update these features – and it’s often much more affordable than installing new! Some homeowners choose to paint everything, sometimes just the handrails or just the spindles.
