This triangle highlights the 3 variables of influence for any project; time, cost, and quality. This principle states that you can obtain at most 2 of the 3 given variables. For example if you hire someone that promises quality work and can do it quickly, then the project will likely cost a pretty penny. Or if you are promised a low cost and can do the project quickly, then odds are the quality will suffer. It’s important to understand which 2 of the 3 variables you desire most and find a contractor that meets those requirements.
We take pride in achieving a balance between offering high quality work and for a reasonable price. It may take us a bit longer to finish your project but that is because we pay attention to the finer details. We like to treat every project as if it is our own and this is how we would like our homes to be taken care of.What are our services?
We primarily focus on painting for residential and commercial properties, but we also provide small renovation services such as adding wainscoting, crown molding, and switching out trim. Let us know if there is anything else you are looking at getting done and if we can’t do it for you, we can help you find someone who can.Where we serve?
We are currently providing our painting services in London Ontario and surrounding areas.How we are different?
Other people may think they are just painting walls, but to us it is much more than that. In most circumstances this is your home, where you spend most of your time. Just the mere colour can change the mood of a room and therefore the people in it. It is important to us that we are not only improving your homes but your lives as well.Why you should hire us?
Fact of the matter is that you have a busy schedule. Maybe painting has been on your to-do list for far too long. Let us take that burden off of you, making the process as hassle free as possible. All you have to do is choose the colours and let us take care of the rest. The prep and cleaning, moving the heavy furniture and fixtures, picking up the paint, supplying all the equipment and tools, the time to get the project done, and clean up afterwards.
Light side or Dark side?
Dark Colours: can give a room a dramatic look, and make rooms seem smaller and cozier.
The Feelings of Colour
(red, yellow, and orange)
Make a room seem smaller.
(purple, blue, and green)
Make a room seem larger.
(tan, grey, and off-whites)
Don’t draw attention, create a restful/relaxing atmosphere, and easier to coordinate with other colors.
Colour Picking Tips
Furniture: Paint colour may seem to change based on the colour of the various furniture and fixtures in a room so it’s important to compare paint options to only furniture in the room to be painted.
Sheen: A lower sheen will yield a softer and more muted look.
Light conditions: Fluorescent lighting- colours appear more blue. Incandescent lighting- colors appear more yellow.
Too Sheen or not too Sheen?
-even light reflection
-don’t highlight surface imperfections
-require less preparation before painting over
-easier and less noticeable to touch-up
Advantages of High Sheen
-stay cleaner longer, more stain resistant
-easier to clean
-more wear resistant so better in high traffic areas
-higher moisture and humidity resistance
Basic Colour Schemes
Harmonious: Use of three neighboring colours on the colour wheel (wheel above)
Complementary: Use of two colours that are opposite of each other on the colour wheel (See example images below)

How to estimate paint quantity and coverage rate?
- Colour: If you are trying to cover up a darker colour you will likely need enough for two coats.
- Surface texture: Paint will go further on smooth surfaces than textured ones
- Quality: Higher quality paints will typically go further than lower quality paints
- Remember: It is better to buy a little extra so that you don't run out in the middle of the job and so you have a bit left over for future touch-ups.
- Note: Most places will accept returns of unopened containers of ready-mixed colors but not custom tints.
