Since 1995, when I first started doing Faux Finishing, almost every homeowner that I met with on an interior painting estimate has asked me many of the same questions.
Is Faux Finishing still as popular as it used to be. What are the advantages of Faux Finishing vs Wallpaper. I have wallpaper in my bathroom and kitchen now, and I would like to get it removed, should I put in a different wallpaper or should I have a Faux Finish in the room? What can you do with these columns in my entrance foyer?

Glidden Lifemaster -Interior Paint...
Are you worried about painting the interior of your home because you are allergies or respiratory problems? Does paint fumes bother you? Or maybe you just don't like the smell of paint. Ron's Painting can help you with this problem. Since 1992, I have been using an interior paint that can help the homeowners of Southwest Florida. It is a product called Lifemaster, and it is being offered to homeowners and contractors at Glidden Paint Stores in Fort Myers.
Many homeowners in the Fort Myers metro area may be more familiar with the paint brand name of Glidden Paint which carries the Lifemaster line of paint. Lifemaster is a VOC-free paint and it is virtually odorless. They recommend using Lifemaster in hospitals, nursing homes, schools and hotels where low odor means rooms can be put back in service faster. Even the flat paint used on the walls has great durability and scrub ability. Lifemaster also has a semi-gloss enamel that can be used on doors, door casings, baseboards, crown moldings and bi-fold doors, By using these durable VOC-friendly paints we can make the interior of your home and condo a little more environmentally friendly.
Do you want a little more color in your life? How do I decide what is the right color for me? What are some of the most popular colors these days?
Bringing color into our Southwest Florida homes however, can be daunting. Color is a homeowners's most powerful tool when it comes to dramatically changing a home. Color used correctly, it completely transforms a room or an entire home. It is the biggest change that can be made for the least amount of money. Even if we don't go out and paint a room a bold hue, we still need to figure out which tones, and how much of them to use. Yet the alternative-sticking to white or beige-often results in rooms that feel too tame, or too much of the same. Color has the power to change everything, like magic. Whether it be the interior or exterior of your Southwest Florida home color is the first thing we notice. Whether you are painting a wall, painting a room, or painting a house, the wrong color sends us in the other direction and the right color draws us in. When I am meeting with clients and we are choosing paint colors or paint schemes for their home, I always emphasize to the homeowner that
the front door is the focal point to their home. This is the best place to use a accent color which will draw attention to their home.
Ron's Painting-Fort Myers realizes how hard it is to choose the right paint colors for our Southwest Florida customers for interior and exterior home painting projects. Picking just the right color can be a challenge. There are so many factors to consider when choosing colors and painting ideas. The biggest challenge is lighting when choosing colors. Have you ever seen a paint chip or color that you absolutely loved in a store but found it looked completely different when you took it home? You just experienced "metamerism," a phenomenon whereby colors seem to change when viewed under different light sources. It's always best to view color swatches in the actual space and lighting conditions in which they'll be used. What we have done for our clients is to provide you with several links to different paint companies that are located in Lee and Collier Counties. Visit Sherwin Williams, Glidden, Valspar, Behr, Porter Paints and Benjamin Moore's websites to view virtual visualizers to get idea's for paint colors.

Have you ever wondered what is involved in doing exterior house painting on a home in Florida? Do I really want to paint the exterior of my home myself, or should I hire a professional painting contractor to do it for me? What is the cost of painting a house?

Does the interior of your home look and feel as inviting as you imagined? How can I add a little more color in my life?

My neighbor was telling me that I should have someone come in and do Faux finishing, what exactly is this Faux finishing they were talking about? I would love to get my painting done before I come down for season, or have it done while I am on vacation, but can I really trust someone to come into my home while I am not there? What about paint colors or paint schemes. How in the world am I going to pick the right paint colors that will blend with my furnishing? Oh, I forgot, I need to have wallpaper removed in my bathrooms, will a painter do this for me?
These are all great questions and concerns many homeowners have on a daily basis. My sister in Ohio just called me with some of the same questions recently. She was looking for some interior home painting ideas since her home had not been freshened up with new paint colors since it was built, and some rooms just needed a new look. She also asked me a very difficult question, exactly was how much does it cost to do interior painting?
