Monday Motivation: The Kitchen is Where it Counts

There are so many phrases about a home and the way to a person’s heart that have been written and repeated over time. One thing realtors will always tell you is the kitchen and master bathroom is where the money is at. This is where you should focus any of your remodeling budget during the time you live in your house and when you are preparing to sell it.

Why is the kitchen so important? Because, this is where you will gather with friends and family and make delicious cuisine. Even if you aren’t a chef it’s the central meeting point for the house and it’s occupants. This is the food source. The place you store your wine or other libations. Which leads to why this room should be fresh and make you feel good.

Check out these kitchen cupboards before Next Door Painting was hired.

With the brown cupboards it makes this room seem closed off and uninviting. Now, watch what happens when Next Door Painting takes on the challenge of making this kitchen better on a small budget:

What a huge difference paint can make! Now, this kitchen has a fresh look to it. A small upgrade like painting your kitchen cabinets can really update your kitchen.

Backyard Tip: Revitalize Your Deck

Backyard season has arrived in Texas. This is one of the greatest times to enjoy being outdoors in Houston. The sun is out and the weather is perfect. Everyone is outside sitting on their decks and sipping on a cold one, whether that’s ice tea, beer, or a frozen margarita. This is the season to kick back and relax. The best way to make sure you enjoy every opportunity of this wonderful weather is by having a great deck. But what if your deck looks like this?

This might put a damper on your outdoor moments. Next Door Painting can help. We can revitalize your weathered and worn out deck by staining it.

We took that deck from “Do I want even want to be out here?” to “Hey everyone come over I’m having a party!”.

Five Tips to Make Your Living Room Pop

The living room is one of the most important rooms in the house. It’s where you gather with your family and friends. Maybe, where you watch your favorite shows or dive into your newest read. Either way, it’s a room you spend a lot of time in, which makes it very important to feel good in it. But how can an inanimate space make you feel something?

Here are Next Door Painting’s Five Tips for Making Your Living Room Pop.

Add a new piece of art:

This room has a gorgeous view but what are your eyes drawn to? The art piece on the wall.

Add a pop of color with pillows to your couch:

This room has great style. And the pop of color on the couch makes the neutrals even more dramatic and fun.

Add a new rug.

This is a grand living room and where do your eyes go? To that amazing rug.

Add an interesting lighting feature.

We love the drama in this room, especially that exquisite light fixture.

The final thing you can do to make a room pop is paint it!

Make Your House Pop with Curbside Appeal

Let’s talk about curbside appeal and how to make your house pop. You can have a five star landscaping job but faded paint and your house will blend into the background or worse, look shabby. If being the house that everyone talks about in a bad way isn’t on your radar, then consider the difference a great paint job can do for your curbside appeal.

Check out the before photo for one of our client’s houses:

The grass is green, lots of great trees…but that faded paint…this is a major no.

Now, check out the after photo when Next Door Painting updated this house’s appearance and created some great curbside appeal. See the difference a great paint job can make for your house? Please consider us for the interior and exterior painting of your home.
