We have recently added a blog to our website. The idea of the blog is to share articles and resources we find useful in the area of interior and exterior painting. We add our own articles and will share others that are relevant. Please check it out and send any comments or suggestions to Erin: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coming Soon: In March a new issue of Fig Magazine will debut. We were impressed with this magazine and decided to be a part of it. Through their talented photographers we were able to get pictures of some recently finished projects that we were excited to share. Look for this magazine to arrive in your homes soon, or you can visit their website: www.figlancaster.com.
Ending Soon: We are currently offering a discount for interior projects that are scheduled for February (limited availability) and March 2014. This is our best discounted price, 15% off labor rates. Please call the office to schedule an appointment for a free estimate.
Recent Residential Customer Testimonial:
Dear Steve and Team –
We just wanted to send you a note of thanks for your work on our recent home remodel. We were so thrilled with all of the work that Ville Painters did throughout the entire project. From beginning to end we were guided through the process with their knowledge and experience. Their craftmanship and attention to detail had a huge impact in the final product. More importantly was the level of comfort we felt having Ville Painters in our home. They were always on time, they worked hard, they answered questions, they matched old paint colors and even helped us pick new paint colors. They displayed commitment to a job well done even when it meant a longer day or an extra visit. We so appreciate the work that they did and we strongly encourage others to use Ville Painters, Inc.

Show your home some love!
This winter you and your family have probably been spending more time than usual in your home. It is likely that your home has been taking an extra beating from increased inside activities. This leads to areas that could use some touching up or refreshing. Give your home a Valentine’s Day gift and take advantage of the discounted winter labor rates being offered by Ville Painters. We want to encourage you to take care of your home and show it some love!
Project ideas may include your cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom. Over time the finish on cabinets get scratched or dinged and lower quality, or older finishes can yellow over time. These changes cause your cabinets to look outdated and unappealing. An inexpensive option to replacing cabinetry is to have them refinished. Professional painters can renew your cabinets in a short period of time with minimal intrusion in your home.
In addition to cabinets, trim in your home, especially chair rails will look their age from use and abuse. Interior trim is a more difficult paint related task because of the precise brushwork and preparation that is involved to yield a quality job. Often home owners will tackle the job of painting the walls and ceilings themselves but will put off painting the trim. This results in a fresh color but an unfinished appearance. Having professionals paint the trim will give you a room that you love from top to bottom.
Another area in your home to show love to is small spaces. Small spaces offer quaint areas for a reading nook, a place to study or pay bills, or a crafting area. These areas are only limited to your imagination and space. However, they can become over crowded. Clean out the space and start fresh with a change of color that will complement your personality and mood.
Let the love you have for your home be reflected in the look of your home. Pick your favorite project or choose all of them. Ville Painters, Inc. will make it look complete. Call the office to schedule an appointment with Steve for a free estimate and take advantage of the 15% off labor rates if your interior project is scheduled for February or March 2014. Treat your home as your special Valentine this year!
What have you resolved?
Many of us suffer through the same routine every year. We sit and make up New Year’s resolutions. Some are well thought out, others convoluted. But regardless of merit, the probability of success is stifled with each passing day due to lack of planning. It is said that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Let that not be the case when it comes to your interior maintenance and decorating plans. The cold weather has made us well aware of our inside surroundings. Now that that the holiday decorations are going away, it is a perfect time for a winter spruce-up!
Ville Painters can help make that resolution happen. Let us visit with you and plan an interior project that is sure to bring some warmth to your home. We are offering exciting discounts for interior work through the end of February. But call us now before the schedule fills up. It is our resolution to continue to offer comfort and peace of mind for our clients!
According to Merriam-Webster (m-w.com) the definition for hibernate is as follows: 1: to pass the winter in a torpid or resting state; 2: to be or become inactive or dormant. Many animals (and plants) in our area hibernate in the winter. Do you do the same thing?
In my house we do not go into a resting state or become inactive, but we do spend a lot of time inside. If you also will be spending a lot of time in-doors, you will find the winter a perfect time to freshen up your home with a new coat of paint.
There are many brands of paint to choose from, however, we use and recommend Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams paints. These paint brands are a much higher quality than many of the paints sold at hardware stores and the big box stores. Having used many different brands of paint myself in my own home, I have found that these paints stand the test of time. They also provide a much smoother application. While the cost is higher initially, they are well worth the investment.
Benjamin Moore has released their color trends for 2014, basing their colors from various design industries. They have labeled their 2014 color trend as “The ‘New’ Neutral Color Pallette.” Visit Benjamin Moore’s website to see their new color palette yourself: http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/for-contractors/color-trends-2014. The Sherwin Williams Color Team has released their color forecast for the upcoming year, “ColorMix 2014.” Sherwin Williams has created four pallets inspired by different styles: Captured, Intrinsic, Curiosity and Diaphanous. Their “ColorMix 2014” can be viewed on their website: http://www.sherwin-williams.com/wcm/idc/groups/public/@swpublic/@sherwin-williams/@content/documents/webcontent/mdaw/mdiy/~edisp/sw-pdf-clrmix2014-expanded.pdf.
Whether choosing the 2014 forecasted colors from Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams, these colors will create a warm and relaxed den for the winter, but are timeless enough to look good year round. Try a new color that will brighten your room and possibly your mood!
