Office Refresh Ideas to Inspire You

Office Refresh Ideas to Inspire You

If you own a small business, you know the importance of keeping your place functional and clean. Also important, however, is creating an environment that inspires your employees and helps curate creativity. All of this can be done with simple design choices. At All-IN Painting, our professional painters can certainly come in and completely change your space with a new paint job. But this isn’t the only way to change your space! By using paint in creative and innovative ways, you can transform your space into an area that your employees – and your clients – will love.

Commercial Painting Services

Here at All-IN Painting, we know a thing or two about business – we’re business owners too, after all! So we provide a variety of commercial painting services to keep your office looking its very best. There are so many things you can do to bring new life to a space that was once drab and uninspiring. You can do as little or as much as you’d like! Our commercial painting contractors can provide you with options to fit any budget, and they will work with you every step of the way. Here are some suggestions to liven up your space:

Add color: A pop of color can do wonders to an otherwise neutral office. This may mean an accent wall, bright furniture, or even painting exposed pipes. If you have an updated warehouse space, any exposed pipes or beams could be brightly painted to not only add color but also become a cool statement piece. This would look particularly striking against crisp white ceiling paint.

Add lettering: At All-IN Painting, we offer painting services such as commercial lines and commercial lettering for your business space. You may want your company’s logo or motto painted on your wall, or you may prefer motivational quotes or client reviews. The possibilities are endless!

Add artwork: Don’t forget those areas of your office that are often overlooked! Bathrooms, stairwells, hallways – add brightly colored art to show off your creativity and to pique the interest of your clients and employees.

Add a relaxation space: Soft blues and greens are cool colors known to inspire relaxation. After a busy morning or a chaotic meeting, your employees will love having a space to go and get recharged. Employees that are admired and treated respectfully will return the favor with loyalty and increased output. Consider the relaxation space!

Now that you know there are many options to update your office, are you ready to go ALL-IN with us? Our painters are ready to get started on your project. In addition to updating your office space, we also provide a number of services aimed at improving your house. Additionally, we paint indoors or outdoors – even if your building is multiple stories high! We have the equipment and experience you need. We aim to be the best paint company, and you can help us with this by filling out our online form or giving us a call at (317) 517-7208. Let’s add some new life to your business today!

In the Mood: How Color Selection Can Impact You

In the Mood: How Color Selection Can Impact You

>

As you scroll endlessly through Pinterest boards or stare at the wall of color swatches, you wonder how you can ever choose the right paint color. Should you go with what’s trending right now? Do you go with a classic favorite? Should you be bold or more muted? Perhaps you should be asking yourself how you want to feel in the space. In this post, you’ll learn more about how your paint color selection can impact your mood and which colors you should consider for your space.

How Colors Affect Your Emotions

Many cultures and holistic treatments associate certain effects with colors. Professionals in advertising, art, and design depend on the psychology of color, and some modern research seems to back it up, although most of these studies are qualitative instead of quantitative.

How to Use Paint Color to Your Advantage

Before you choose a color scheme for a room, you need to decide how you want to feel when you’re in it. While you likely hope to feel peaceful and calm in your bedroom and choose cool colors (e.g., blues, greens), you may not necessarily desire the same vibe in the dining room where your guests will be. Therefore, you may want to pick warmer colors (e.g., reds, oranges, yellows) for these spaces meant for entertaining. However, as the homeowner, you must ultimately decide what will make you feel happy and comfortable—you’re the one living there after all!

How Paint Color Can Impact You

Here are some examples of colors and when they may or may not be useful in terms of wall paint.

Red

In many cultures, the color red is thought to stimulate the body and help with circulation. However, certain tones can be associated with rage or anger. If you choose a bold red, perhaps you can consider painting only an accent wall this color to make the space a little less intimidating.

Orange

Holistic therapy takes advantage of colors, and orange is often used to heal the lungs and increase energy levels. In terms of home design, oranges such as saffron can have an international feel to them and are great options for home offices or dining rooms.

Yellow

While yellow can act as a stimulating color for some, others can find it anxiety inducing. In bathrooms, yellows are not usually recommended because this color can make this space appear dirty or excessively aged.

Blue

Cool blues are a classic color choice for bathrooms and bedrooms because they tend to evoke the feeling of calmness and cleanliness.

Green

Bringing natural tones of green into your spaces can help create a more relaxing environment, whether you’re simply adding some green plants to a space or using this color as your primary wall color.

Gray

Gray is popular because it is an appealing alternative to white or beige, but you should keep in mind that some find it depressing. If you elect for this color, you may want to find a shade that is still fairly bright to avoid turning the room into a gloomy space.

In the end, the color you choose for your paint likely will not determine your mood all the time. However, you can create the atmosphere you wish to have by considering how the color makes you feel.

They noticed a gap in the industry because options were slim and very few focused on excellent customer service. They created Platinum Painting to put homeowners first from beginning to end.

5 Ways to Make Small Rooms Look Bigger

5 Ways to Make Small Rooms Look Bigger

>

Painting a home can do a lot more to it than give it a face lift. Today, many young homeowners are working with smaller budgets, so they can’t invest in renovations like removing walls and heightening ceilings to make rooms look bigger. One cost-effective way to make rooms feel and appear larger than they actually are is to paint the walls. Read on to learn how you can use paint and décor to take a room from feeling cramped to looking expansive.

Utilize Paint

Something as simple as painting the room a lighter color can make it appear brighter and larger. It’s a good idea to avoid a pure white color, because it can create dramatic shadows with the furniture and décor that actually makes the area look smaller instead of larger. Instead, try light and pale blues, greens, purples, tans, and grays. These are all airy, modern-feeling colors that can go with a wide array of room themes and furniture.

Incorporate Mirrors

Mirrors are a more obvious technique to take a small room and make it appear larger. That’s why you see many apartments with built-in mirrors along the length of walls. While this specific way of utilizing mirrors may be a little overwhelming, a more reasonable way to utilize this method of expansion would be to place large mirrors in areas of the house that don’t receive much light. This will keep the light bouncing around the room, making it look as though it’s more spacious than it actually is.

Invest in Houseplants

Houseplants won’t just make your home feel happier and boost your mood, they’ll also make a space appear more open and airy. If you’re confident in your ability to keep them alive, try investing in some great plants to hang from the ceiling or display on bookshelves. Some excellent, easy-to-care-for houseplants include pothos, succulents, ivy, and snake plants!

Stage the Room with Lighting

A dark space appears cramped, so installing some much-needed lighting to illuminate corners of rooms can help it appear bigger. You can try utilizing lamps, track lighting along ceilings, or just getting around to replacing that lightbulb that went out on the ceiling fan in a room months ago!

Marie Kondo the Room

Finally, the most dreaded way to make a room appear larger is cutting the clutter. Explore your room and open up boxes that have been taking up space in your living room, hallways or closets, and in the famous words of Marie Kondo, ask yourself if what you pull out “brings you joy.” If not, it might be time to donate it!

You don’t always have to put your money into a costly home remodeling project to make it appear larger than it does now. Sometimes, all it takes is a little ingenuity and a small budget!

More Than Color: 5 Paint Finishes and When to Use Them

More Than Color: 5 Paint Finishes and When to Use Them

>

After looking at the walls of color swatches and trying out a few options on your wall, you’ve found the perfect paint color for your living room. You’re all set to get painting, right? Wait! You still have an important decision ahead of you—picking the finish. But how does the finish really affect the quality of the paint job? Read on to find out about the different finishes you can choose and in what situations you might want to use them.

High-Gloss

This is the glossiest option available. This finish is significantly shiny, so it is most suitable for door frames, window sills and other similar accents. High-gloss paints also work best in rooms where messes are likely to happen because they are easy to scrub and clean. Kitchens and bathrooms, namely, are rooms where you may want to consider getting a high-gloss finish, especially if you have young kids. Just keep in mind that because of its shininess, imperfections in the wall are more visible than with other finishes.

Semi-Gloss

Not quite as shiny as high-gloss, semi-gloss still reflects plenty of light, making a space look brighter and more airy. It’s predominantly used for trim and other accents but also comes in handy for bathrooms, kitchens, and kids rooms too. This gloss makes cleaning a breeze as well!

Satin

Satin is the perfect middle ground between high-gloss and flat finishes. It reflects some light but also hides flaws much better than semi-gloss or high-gloss paints. Depending on the texture quality of your walls, this could be a good option for a bedroom, living room, or dining room. This finish is still easier to keep clean than less glossy options, making it a good compromise.

Eggshell

Don’t expect many messes in a specific room? Do you have flaws in the walls that you’d like to go unnoticed? Eggshell finish may be the right fit for the room. Although not as easy to clean as other glosses, this finish makes the walls look smooth. In guest bedrooms, especially if you aren’t anticipating much activity in the room or little impact on the walls, this finish is a good option.

Flat

Compared to the rest of the finishes, flat hides imperfections the best, but it is also more difficult to keep clean. This finish often works best in guest bedrooms or living rooms.

In the end, it’s important to take the finish into consideration. The gloss can impact how well your walls weather the normal daily wear and tear or appear in the light, so you need to choose carefully. Understanding more about the various glosses can help you make the right decision in your home improvement projects and create the look you want in your rooms.

How Should You Prep the Outside of Your Home for Painting?

How Should You Prep the Outside of Your Home for Painting?

>

If you’ve never painted the exterior of a home before, it’s crucial to take all of the proper steps to achieve long-lasting, even, and excellent results. If your goal is to boost your home’s curbside appeal, the last thing you would want to do is diminish it by doing a poorly planned job that doesn’t look as nice as you’d hoped for. With proper preparation, you can avoid costly and unnecessary mistakes that take time to resolve. Read on to learn more about how you can prepare to paint the exterior of your home.

Why is Preparation So Important?

A lot of novice home painters make the mistake of thinking that house painting is a simple, one-step process, but in reality, it’s not that at all. There are several steps that are crucial to take in order to achieve results that will last and that look great. If you cut corners, it could result in paint looking uneven and scarce in some areas, bubbling and dripping paint, or highlighting issues like nail holes and cracked wood. Down the road, a lack of preparation could even lead to huge, costly problems for your home.

Inspect Your Windows & Doors

Drip edge flashing is what you find surrounding windows and doors around your home; however, in older homes, there may just be caulk. It’s important to doublecheck all of these areas to make sure that no water is leaking into your house. You may be able to see by paint discoloration or rot, and it’s important to replace it if you want your new paintjob to last for years. As tempting as it is to paint over any problem areas, they won’t look good down the road, and you’ll just need to replace the wood and edging in the area anyways if mold or mildew is present.

Don’t Forget to Sand & Powerwash

It’s important to get all of the old paint off of your home before adding another layer. Stacking several layers on top of each other without properly removing the current coat will just trap dirt, dust, and other pollutants beneath it, ruining its appearance and cleanliness. Be sure to sand and powerwash the exterior of your home thoroughly before adding a new coat.

Never Rush Through the Job

Rushing through a job can be tempting, especially if you weren’t prepared for the investment in time that this project takes. However, if you don’t take your time by applying the proper number of coats, you’ll end up with patchy results that will be less than desirable.

If you don’t have any experience in exterior painting, painting your whole home is a huge project to take on by yourself. Instead of taking it on alone, you can call in professional painters as reinforcements to make sure that you get the results that you were hoping for all along. You also won’t have to deal with any of the stress or hassle that comes with fixing any mistakes you make.

About Platinum Painting

At Platinum Painting, our team of professional painters never cuts corners. They take their time in each stage of the project, including preparation, painting, and finishing touches, to make sure that each homeowner is satisfied with the results. We even offer a satisfaction guarantee! You can visit our website or call us at 214-347-7269 to schedule a free in-home estimate.

How to Choose Paint Like a Pro

How to Choose Paint Like a Pro

Before the process of painting your home begins, you need to choose a color that works well with the space. This can actually be surprisingly tricky, as factors such as how light affects it, how it matches the woodwork, and whether it makes the room feel more open or more claustrophobic, all come into play. Read on for a handful of foolproof color selection tips for your room painting project!

Are you in Northern Colorado and want to make sure your residential or commercial painting project goes off without a hitch? Horner Painting provides professional painting services throughout the region with reliably high-quality results and hands-on customer support. We find that putting people first produces the best painting experience. Contact us today to speak with a Fort Collins painting contractor about your upcoming project today!

Where Should You Start?


When choosing what color to paint your room, a good place to start is to consider the amount and direction of natural light in the room. Contextualizing the light along with the existing colors and shapes in the room (such as rugs and furniture) can help you quickly narrow down your options. Bright, clean natural light will brighten up the paint so that the true color shows well, while a southern facing room may be warmed up by the warmer natural lighting it will get.

Feeling of Spaciousness

When you want to make your room feel more spacious and open, brighter colors are often a better choice, as they will reflect more natural light. However, if the concept for the room is less “openness” than “coziness,” a deeper, moodier color may be superior for achieving that affect.

Cohesiveness


When getting multiple rooms painted in your house at the same time, there should be some consideration regarding how to make the colors feel coordinated and flow seamlessly from one room to the next. An easy way to do this is to choose different shades within the same color family. For example, having one room with a medium blue, and the next one a few shades lighter. Complimentary colors also help build a sense of cohesion — for example, you have that medium blue in one room and then go for a medium-hued gray hue in the next.

How to Use White

White is actually one of the hardest colors to get right. The subtle undertones and considerations of warmth and balancing it with the other colors in the room can be difficult. Generally, eggshell white is best for finishing walls, as it gives a soft sheen, while semi-gloss looks great for trim and matches eggshell white walls well.

How to Spruce Up Your Lawn

How to Spruce Up Your Lawn

We’re taking a break from our traditional paint-themed articles to bring you a few tips to get your lawn in top shape as the grass starts turning its greenest here in Northern Colorado. As we begin to turn on our sprinklers and our mowers for the first time, now is the perfect time to set up your lawn for a successful summer. And if you’re like most folks, you may have a few brown patches, a few dozen weeds, and a bit of thatch built up from winter. So, we’ve cataloged a few tips you can try out to make your lawn the talk of the town. Take a look!


Aerate

Plenty of homeowners neglect to aerate their lawn, but it’s a good habit to get into. It’s recommended that folks aerate twice per year to improve the soil of the lawn, preferably in the spring and fall. Aerating helps to soften dirt, bringing a bit of air to grass roots, while also mixing up much needed nutrients. Plus, water will more easily penetrate your soil after aerating. So, your grass will have more nutrients, more water, and more air. Don’t have an aerator? You can rent a machine aerator from your local hardware store for a few hours, or invest in a step-on aerator that you can use with your feet.

Fertilize

Fertilizing replenishes your lawn’s soil with all the nutrients it needs to support healthy grass. It’s best to fertilize your lawn once per year, and now is the perfect time to do it! Pick up a bag of fertilizer and use a fertilizer spreader to give your lawn a thin coating. Be sure to follow the instructions of the fertilizer you purchase. Most fertilizers recommend giving your lawn a good soak beforehand, to help the nutrients to penetrate the soil. Don’t forget to keep your pets and kiddoes off the lawn for a day or two, since some fertilizers can be harmful.


Watering

If you’re turning your sprinklers on for the first time this season, be sure to check all of your sprinkler heads. Sprinkler heads often break or become misaligned over winter, so you may have to do a bit of maintenance to ensure you have even coverage over your whole lawn. It’s best to set your system timer to go off at night, just before sunrise, to ensure that the water doesn’t evaporate right away. Adjust the amount of time that you water for the heat, or if there is rain in the forecast, so you don’t end up overwatering your lawn. Give your lawn about 20 minutes of water every other day in the spring, and possibly every day in the height of the summer to ensure your grass gets about an inch of water per week.

Here for Spring Painting

As the green season is in full form, and it’s the perfect time for house painting. As the temperatures rise, we’re scheduling exterior home painting projects for folks throughout Northern Colorado. We hope you’ve enjoyed our lawncare tips, and as always, you can count on us for all your painting needs. Horner Painting provides home painting services for folks throughout Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Windsor, Johnstown, Wellington, Severance, and Timnath — simply reach out to us to get started!

Home Improvement Tips for Mother’s Day

Home Improvement Tips for Mother’s Day

May is here, which means rising temperatures, afternoon thunderstorms, and of course, Mother’s Day. We want to take a moment to celebrate all of the mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers and wives out there who have shaped us and our community. We give thanks for all the hard work they put forth, and the warmth they provide us. That’s why we’re taking a moment to offer up a few springtime home improvement tips that we can all take part in, so that we can brighten Mom’s day! As always, you can count on Horner Painting for interior and exterior home painting services; after all, a fresh coat of paint can work wonders to transform your home, bringing a smile to any mother’s face. Simply reach out to us to get started, and to take advantage of our early bird pricing specials on exterior painting services. Now let’s delve into a few more home improvement projects that you can take on as we approach Mother’s Day (which is on Sunday, May 9!).


Springtime Gardening

Early May doesn’t just mark the time to celebrate mothers, it’s also the best time to begin gardening. Whether Mom likes to garden, or you’re the green thumb of the house, everybody can enjoy delicious veggies and beautiful flowers that your garden can bring. Take time this week to till your garden beds and lay in seeds. If you don’t have garden beds, now is the time to build them. Consider making a raised bed with railroad ties or exterior-grade lumber. Or, till straight into the ground to make a makeshift garden with veggies that will be just as delicious. And feel free to get the kids involved!

Carpet Cleaning


The spring season also marks that time of the year where we dust away the cobwebs of winter, cleaning the house from tip to toe. Yet, folks often forget to give their carpets a thorough cleaning as they practice the spring cleaning tradition. Carpet cleaning can work wonders to transform your home, especially if you have pets and kiddos who bring more dirt in the front door every minute. Try to set aside a time to rent a commercial carpet cleaner from your local hardware store if you’re a do-it-yourselfer. Or consider hiring a professional company while Mom is away from the house for a few hours for a welcome surprise!

Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling

If you’re a handyman, you can show your appreciation for the mum in your life with a kitchen or bathroom remodel. While you’ll have to set aside a bit of money and plenty of time for these projects, a home remodel can prove useful, valuable, and appealing to the eye. Transform a bathroom with modern fixtures, or get rid of that old, outdated wallpaper. Or pull out the appliances of your kitchen and replace them with new, more efficient, stainless steel models. If you’re feeling bold, a remodeling project is sure to show your love and appreciation for Mom.

Our Early Bird Specials

We hope that you’ve enjoyed our ideas, and we hope you enjoy the weekend celebrating time with all of the mothers in your life. We’ll be here throughout the summer, ready to provide you with home painting services at the drop of a hat. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us to take advantage of our early bird specials this spring.

Interior Painting Tips for New Homeowners

Interior Painting Tips for New Homeowners

Buying a home is both exciting and stressful, and it affords us an opportunity for a fresh start. When you’re handed the keys to your new home, it’s likely that you want to make it just that: Yours. And what better way is there to truly transition than to update the interior spaces with a fresh coat of paint — we certainly understand that urge here at Horner Painting. Plus, having your home painted just before you from the headache of moving your belongings and boarding pets in order to prepare for your painting project — we definitely find it easiest to paint an empty home!


So, if you’re considering taking advantage of your home transition by painting the interior spaces your latest big investment, we’d love to share some tips with you to make the most of your new abode. Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you pick paint colors and accent walls while you make your next big move. And as always, you can count on Horner Painting to paint your walls, so you can focus on preparing for that move. We provide painting services throughout Northern Colorado, offering services for our neighbors in Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Windsor, Johnstown, Wellington, Severance, and Timnath — please, call us today to schedule your paint job. Now let’s delve into those tips!

Pick a Theme

Every house has character. You may have a modern home with expansive bay windows, granite countertops, and brushed nickel fixtures, or you might have a rustic log cabin with a stone fireplace, butcher-block counters, and brass fixtures. Regardless, you can highlight the character of your home with a painting theme that speaks to its unique feel. For example, you might consider white, off-white, dark greys, coffee browns, rust colors, and other timeless paints for a modern interior. Take a fresh look at your new home, and ask yourself: What kind of paints work well with the architectural theme of my home?


Room Size

The size of a room can play a major role in selecting the right paint. In general, small rooms really shouldn’t feature a dark paint color, since it makes a small room appear even smaller. And large rooms shouldn’t feature colors that are too bold, since bold colors spread over a large surface can be gaudy — there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. So, for small rooms, stick with bright colors to add a bit of an illusion of airiness and space. And for large rooms, stick with quieter colors. And remember, you can add an accent color to either of these rooms if you simply must have that dark hue, or that favorite bold color of yours.

Feature Your Furniture

Whether you’re getting new furniture or bringing in your current collection, you can rely on these items to help set the tone for your home. Grab a handful of paint swatches, and place them against some of the larger, key pieces of furniture that you’ll be placing throughout the spaces of your home. What will work well with that chocolate brown colored leather couch? And which paint would pair well with that retro, baby blue TV stand? If you’re stuck searching for the right paints, your furniture may just prove to be a guiding light.

Making Your Home Transition Easy

Here at Horner, we’re here to make your home transition as easy as possible. Let us shoulder the weight of painting your new abode, while you’re packing up the family and the belongings at your old home. We’d be happy to paint your home, and we provide both interior and exterior painting services, so you can transform your new property all in one fell swoop. If you have any inquiries or if you’d like to get started, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us — we’re here to help! Again, we provide painting services for our neighbors (including new neighbors!) throughout Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Windsor, Johnstown, Wellington, Severance, and Timnath.
