Brighten Up with Interior Painting in Madison NJ

Brighten Up With Interior Painting

Scope of Work: Interior Painting, Floor Refinishing
Town: Madison, NJ
Timing: 6 days

A dark family room is great for movie watching, but that’s about all. This Madison, NJ family wanted to take advantage of all the natural light that their family room offered them. Since they converted their porch and made it part of their family room, they had 6 large windows in the room. However, due to the wall color of the room, it never seemed bright. Monk’s took care of that by painting the room, as well as refinishing the hardwood floors.

Still Dark Even With All the Windows

The dark olive wall color in this family room seemed to absorb all the natural light. Even on a bright sunny day, it was still dark in the room. The homeowners wanted a fresh look, so they asked us to lighten their wall color.
After everything was removed from the room, we began by painting the walls above the baseboards. This included scraping the peeling radiators and repainting them.
Once we finished painting the walls, we removed the wall-to-wall carpet. Most of the floor underneath was beautiful hardwood. Where it wasn’t, we removed the existing plywood. Then we patched the area with matching hardwood planks. Afterwards, we sanded the entire room with our dustless sanders. At last, we stained and sealed the floor giving the entire area a cohesive look.
Finally, we finished the project by painting the baseboards. We painted these last because the sanding equipment can mark them up.
Now the entire room is bright and welcoming.

We are often asked to perform floor refinishing and interior painting at the same time. This makes sense because you only need to move your furniture once, and your room will already be inaccessible, so you may as well get everything done at one time.
