Also called a “floating floor,” laminate can be installed directly over your existing plywood or subfloor or any other hard-surface floor, such as hardwood, concrete or linoleum. There is very little waste when using this flooring, unlike hardwood, laminate planks have no defects or imperfections.

Tips on Choosing The Right Backsplash

When remodelling a kitchen consider a back splash as part of your upgrades. Back splashes are a durable wall covering that protects your walls from water resulting in stains and molds. A kitchen is a high traffic area where most food preparation is made and is most likely come into contact with water and greasy foods spatters. Back splashes not only serve as protective barrier from these elements, back splashes also play an important role in the kitchen’s décor by harmonizing the various elements of design. Modern back splashes are an important link that completes a bigger picture and the over all look with your choice of kitchen counter top finish, your kitchen floor product choice and all other finishes. All these elements tie into the overall design compositions that “Screams” beautiful! With the right look and results, your kitchen could quite possibly become one of your favorite rooms in the house!  Learn more…

Staircase Makeover-Don Of All Trades

A Staircase That Makes A Statement

Staircase Makeover-Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services

At Don of all Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services, we are always contacted by clients to assist them with unique and special projects around their home.  This striking  staircase  will certainly make an unforgettable statement when family and friends come to celebrate  over the Christmas Holidays.

In many houses, the staircase is the first architectural element of the home’s interior that guests see, so homeowners want it to be appealing.

A banister handrail on a staircase gets touched a lot. As people walk up and down the stairs, they often grasp the handrail whether they need to or not. The handrail can give you a sense of security as you move along the stairway, but over time, the oils from your skin can damage the paint, and the simple act of sliding your hand along the handrail can wear away the paint. Painting the banister handrail can return it to its original state.

Simple fact is, you can’t have a two-story home without a staircase. However, the fact that your staircase needs to be redecorated every once in a while is often overlooked. A decorated and refinished staircase can offer a complete change without even doing that much. We can’t forget the wear and tear, that no matter what, will happen to our beautiful stairs over time. So it’s crucial to give them a little face lift from time to time. Also, a redecorated staircases can command attention and thus become the focal point of your foyer or hallway.

General Repair might include just simply refinishing your wooden stairs for a new look. Or, perhaps all you need is fresh carpet for your carpeted staircase, and of course you could always change your carpet staircase to a wooden one as well. But if you are looking to do a little more, we have a few tips and ideas for you.

 

Always Do Your Research

We made a trip to our local Whitby Shores  Décor  Centre and got assistance from the  Benjamin Moore  Colour Consultant team. They gave expert advice on the type of paint to choose for this particular project with results our client were looking for. We chose the Benjamin Moore  Cloud White for the balusters. The  colour of choice for the Banister/Handrail was to be painted in  Espresso with a finishing coat of Satin Varnish Clear Coat.  View our slide show below to see the before and after photos.

Scope of the Work

 

Beautiful Staircase Makeover-Don Of All Trades

Our team at Don of all Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services spent most of our first day prepping the staircase for the painting process.

If you are planning a DIY project for your own staircase, please remember to have patience. This project was very labour intensive and a second set of hands and eyes will help  go a long way in the painting process.

Our client was extremely pleased at the  transformation of this staircase and that it was completed just in time for the Christmas Holidays!

Beautiful Staircase Makeover-Don Of All Trades

All  113 Balusters, 5 Newel PostsString and all Facia were given 3 generous coats of Cloud White Shade Cottage Paint to ensure maximum coverage.
