6 Tips for Meeting Your Pre-Holiday Painting Goals

We all want our homes to look their best year round, but there is a special emphasis during the holidays on comfort and style. Maybe because the new year is coming, bringing with it a sense of newness, change, and optimism.

Or maybe it’s because friends and family arrive, and we want to put our best, most stylish, foot forward.

Whatever your reasons might be, this is a perfect season for making a few changes. If you’re like most of us, however, time can be a little short! Because of that, we’ve put together a six tips for making the very most of your interior painting improvements.

Planning Your Interior Painting Strategy - Where Should You Start?

  • What are your goals? Take a few minutes to jot down what you’d really like to accomplish, in broad terms. Update? Repair? Refinish? Listing your “needs” and “wants” in two distinct columns can also help you work in priority.
  • Focus on high-impact projects! If there isn’t a must-complete project, like painting over a repaired section of sheetrock, you can instead shift gears to “wants.” In the interest of time, we suggest focusing on those areas that will encounter the most traffic: living room, kitchen, dining room, guest space, etc... You know your home and guests best!
  • Short on time? How about an accent wall? This is an extremely economical update that can make a big difference in a room.
  • Consider multiple spaces. Here are a few helpful tips for developing a palette that flows naturally from room to room while also connecting the spaces. A master plan will help you to work more efficiently and cohesively overall.
  • Do you need cabinet painting or refinishing services? This is often a more cost-effective, less time-consuming alternative to tearing out and replacing cabinetry in your bathroom or kitchen. The results, however, are no less transformative! Take a look here to find out why this practice is so popular.

Customer Reviews

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“Edy and crew are hard at work. They are doing a great job. Very professional outfit you have. Your crew is a delight. You may use me for a reference!”

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walk through experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3 year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch up items that will show up after the job is done.”

— Joshua Jansen

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“I just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”
