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.

Our Last Tip? Talk to a Local, Professional Painting Company

This is definitely the right time to contact your local painter. Harness their expertise and experience to not only streamline your color selection process, but also to wrap up your project right when you need it. There is just no substitute for working with an experienced team that really catches your vision!

Customer Reviews

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— 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

“I love the article in the paper on your company. Thank you for supporting our community by painting at the Claremont Middle School. Thanks!”

— Carla Banks

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

— Beth Marx & Melissa Kirsch

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

— Alicia R.

“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 walkthrough 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 J.

“Charles finished yesterday and did a fantastic job. We really enjoyed meeting Charles and having him in our home. He is a great guy in addition to his attention to detail in his work, the protection of our floors, walls and furnishings, and his overall interaction with us both. I would be pleased to recommend him to any of my clients.”

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

— Michelle & Rivers Gee

“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.”
