Gold is the new silver. At least when it comes to fixtures, lights and pulls in today’s new homes and renovations. Designers love antiqued gold or rubbed brass. It is warm and inviting and so much less clinical than stainless steel. The move to gold is more than a trend. Gold and brass have a timeless look. They are classic and are always in style.
When this kitchen underwent a makeover by interior designer Andrea Johnson, the pulls on the doors and even the faucet to got an update to gold.
The counters were replaced with a soft white quartz and the back splash was replaced with a pretty stone mini-tile that had just the right amount of sparkle.
Next Warline came in to repaint the kitchen.
This home was on the third floor of a condo building in White Rock. Anytime you are doing renovation work in a condo, townhouse or apartment the transference of dust and fumes between suites should be a consideration. Much like smoke, paint fumes will travel through the vents and air ducts and can carry over into neighbouring units.
Warline’s cabinet painting system addresses this issue. We use low VOC primers and paints for all of our work. We also work dust free. Using Festool sanders and dust extractors means less dust, less mess and a healthier more environmentally safe environment for both our customers and our crew.
We also don’t spray in apartments or condos that share air with other units. We can do this by using specialized cabinet paints that self-level and dry to a smooth finish. No brush or roller marks are visible. It’s the perfect solution to living in shared space and not compromising on quality finish.
The doors were taken back to our shop where the were cleaned, prepped, primed and painted. The doors are spray coated and cure for five to seven days before being returned for reinstallation.
Two weeks after we started, the kitchen is a perfect gray. We used Benjamin Moore Moonshine (OC-56 / 2140-60). The kitchen is stunning and we think it deserves a gold medal.
