Some tips and tricks to keep you from painting again too soon.

– Ensure you prep the area or item properly and use the appropriate primer to ensure proper adhesion to the surface.  (Clean it up and make sure to remove any peeling paint so the new coat will stick )

– Don’t paint in if it’s too hot or too cold. The extreme temperature will not allow the paint to dry and cure properly and will quickly lead to peeling and cracking.

– The best time to paint is in the morning (before it gets too hot) and before the evening dew sets in so the paint has time to dry.

– Like interior paint allow the paint to properly cure, be careful with it for 2 – 4 weeks while it hardens.

BenjaminMoore_WickhamGray_HC-171_Katonha.dining.

From Benjamin Moore – Colour Trends 2014

“Do you have a room that just doesn’t “feel right” but can’t figure out why? Have you ever bought the “perfect” paint colour, only to be disappointed at how it actually looks on your wall?

Colour is the single most important visible element of any design. It’s no wonder that people agonize over it. Choosing the right colour can be a daunting task; choosing the wrong one can prove to be frustrating.

With so many paint colours and finishes to choose from, it makes sense to hire someone who can take the guesswork out of the equation and create the colour palette that is right for your space and your lifestyle.

A trained colour expert knows how to accomplish the
result you are seeking, whether you are painting a room, remodeling a space, or looking to improve your home’s
curb appeal.”   – Benjamin Moore Why Hire a Colour Consultant

The consultation is $85/hr + hst. – The Bonus You receive a discount in the store after on any paint or products!  (Approximately 10-15% depending on the item) Consultations normally take about an hour, but can run longer depending on the size of the home and the amount of colours preferred. A report will be done up in-store following the consultation and can be provided to you by email or paper depending on your preference.

Drapery and Shutters

Drapery and Shutters

Who said you have to pick one or the other. These two window coverings compliment each other quite nicely and each have their own purpose and function. We just finished installing these Eclipse 3 1/2 ” Shutters and two storey custom drapery side panels at the New Richcraft Model Homes in Riverside South 

Fresh Slate offers a wide range of options.

Richcraft_Addison_Windows_floors_Fireplace_empty

The benefit of Eclipse Shutters is that they allow you to position the louvers for added light control and privacy.  They are easy to open and take off if you want to clean or need access the window. Shutters are also cordless so they are very safe for kids and pets. Shutters look fantastic on their own, or you can soften the look and add pattern with side panels.

  Richcraft_Addison_Windows_Shutters_Drapery_Panels_Fireplace_woodfloors_dining

For the Drapery you can have full functional panels or panels that just sit on the side and don’t move which is what we have done here . Side panels are common if you also have the blinds in the window.
