Dining & Living room in Brentwood

Our goal in this project was to break through the basic eggshell and salmon template seen in the ‘before’ pictures, and ultimately give each room its own personality with two fresh coats of paint to all areas, patching things up in the process. We could let the ‘after’ pictures show what we managed to accomplish in an eight-days work, but for those who like to get into the gory details, this is what we did:

Before starting out, we certainly took the necessary precautions:

  • Protective plastic covering and Dust sheets used to keep the floor, nearby areas and furniture intact
  • Masking tape placed over the sockets, switches, fittings and underneath all skirtings
  • Cracks were raked out, for a proper fresh start
  • Scrim tape applied where needed to larger cracks to avoid future cracking
  • Ceilings and walls filled with Easi-fill
  • Woodwork preparation included caulk to the top area of all skirtings, internal mitre’s and edges of architraves. Wood filler used for all mitre joints and to prepare all woodwork
  • Ceilings and covings were coated in Dulux Trade Fast Matt White Emulsion
  • Dining and lounge room walls have been covered with Valspar Premium Blend Emulsion in the Whisper Softly colour
  • For the bedroom walls, we used the Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt Sapphire Salute
  • For All the Architraves, skirtings, fireplace and picture rail we used an Dulux Trade white oil based Eggshell finish as the client wanted to maintain the property’s heritage style and to achieve the traditional eggshell finish
  • And we applied a spray finish to the radiators giving them a smooth white Hammerite finish

We incorporate integrity, reliability, and rofessionalism into every project whether it be large or small.
