Do we talk by phone or do you come to my home?

We invite you to call us and book a complimentary consultation. We have years of experience helping clients achieve the right look with paint in both commercial and residential spaces.

What days wouldn't work for a color consultation?

It is always most advisable to look at color options in the light in which you would be viewing the color - inside for interior paints and outside for exterior paints. That said daylight is better than evening or dreary rainy days. We would want to use optimal lighting to really assess which colors work best and have the most appeal.

Wouldn't it just be cheaper for us to paint our own interior or exterior?

Quality painting takes exceptional skill and, for the unskilled, can take a lot of time. Selecting the right color is only the first step; you also need to choose the right paint for the job and the finish that is most appropriate. We offer you years of experience as professional Traverse City painters in picking colors that work well for every kind of interior and exterior. Rather than painting yourself and discovering you aren't happy with the results, let us help you get it right the first time.

I have children and pets so I want a low VOC paint. Will this still offer me a wide selection of color?

Each brand of paint has its own unique VOC - more and more offering low or zero VOC. Similarly each paint brand has its own color palette available, ranging from contemporary colors to heritage. We can look at your options during a consultation.

Should we care about popular color trends?

Color trends do influence the color palettes available through the paint brands. It is always useful to look at the hottest trends in color for inspiration and ideas. That said, it is just as important to look at the existing d├ęcor when considering interior paint and the architecture and location for exterior paint.

The space we want to paint is under construction. Does that matter? Should we wait till it is finished? No, you don't have to wait. As long as we can look at the layout and lighting for the space we can consider color options and appropriate palettes.
