INTERIOR

Most of the work undertaken so far focuses on interiors, (although this is rapidly changing now the warmer weather is here) either brightening and renewing, or completely changing and renovating rooms and areas. Both of these aspects I consider to be equally important, so it is necessary to apply appropriate preparation to achieve the desired finish. It is nice to be involved in larger projects from start to finish. I enjoy being involved in the design process if required and can advise on colour schemes and finishes. 

Some work projects so far include some work on homes of historical interest. I have respect for these features and value the stories behind the designs, as well as appreciating the architecture. The overall aim is to restore all interior features to their former glory to do them justice and to reflect the quality of the classical design. 

 

 

 

Preparation

All walls need to be smooth with no cracks or holes before painting. These are filled and sanded until walls are flat and ready for paint. A mist coat is applied to bare plaster and an undercoat can be applied to cover dark paint colours. Woodwork needs to be sanded and filled if necessary. Some woodwork may even need replacing. Gaps around skirting boards are filled with caulk. They can then be treated with an undercoat and painted to a high gloss/eggshell/satinwood or matt finish.

Finish

All woodwork and walls are painted or rollered with quality equipment and paints to ensure the best finish for all areas and all painted surfaces. The best preparation can lead to a superior finish which adds to the impact of the chosen design and colour scheme.
