All Saints Eve is almost upon us! This day, commonly known as Halloween, is marked for many by a night to dress up and go trick or treating. But do you know the origin behind this evening?
Do you have built-in cabinets or bookshelves that could use some updating? Maybe the trim in your house is wood, and you want to change up the look? An efficient, long-lasting way to complete this process is to stain and varnish the wood.
There are a lot of ways to mix up the appearance of a room. Painting the wall or trim, or updating the wallpaper are some simple adjustments that can be made. Another way to make a large impact in a room is to texture the wall.
The most common of all is the orange peel texture. Orange peel texture looks like small bumps all over the wall, also compared to the appearance of an eggshell. This is popular because it allows you to experiment with texture while keeping the change to the wall minimal.
The other most common texture is the knockdown, which is wider and flatter bumps than the orange peel. This texture helps to reduce the appearance of an imperfections in the drywall, adds dimension to the room, and even absorbs some sound.
If you want to get fancy, you can get a swirl texture, which will create overlapping circles. To outdo the swirl, another drywall texture possibility is the comb. This is similar to the swirl, but wavy, and has more of a 3-D impact than the other textures.
Last week, we worked on a commercial drywall hanging, taping, and floating project in Seattle. We also worked on a residential drywall and interior painting project in Snohomish. We taped and floated out new and existing walls, along with painting the ceiling, walls, and trim.
Maybe you like some of the options above, or maybe you can think of an even more creative design that is even more striking. Whatever you decide on, reach out to us if you would like the interior or exterior – of your house or commercial building – refinished. We look forward to discussing the options for texture!

With the busy schedules that formed as school began, your laundry room is likely put to good use. Clothing for school, sports, and work all add up to create baskets and baskets of laundry. During this time, you may have noticed that the room could use some updating. There are many ways in which you can improve the appearance of your room to help make your time in there a more pleasant experience.
One way to make a large impact is to paint the cabinets a different color. Begin by removing all hardware. Use a stripping agent to eliminate any previous paint layers. After, sand the cabinets to smooth out any dents that have appeared, and to remove any remaining paint. Prime the cabinets before painting and proceed with painting the cabinets.
If you want to go even larger scale than this, you could paint all of the walls. Maybe you want to have all of the walls painted monochrome? Or maybe you want to make a statement with an accent wall, visible right when you walk in? Wallpaper allow for an efficient way to create an eye-catching wall.
Last week, we worked on a commercial interior repaint in Woodinville. We also worked on a residential exterior repaint in Monroe, and an interior drywall taping, finishing, and repainting project in Snohomish.
