Cabinet refinishing is now a popular way for homeowners to give a fresh look to their kitchens. It used to be that cabinets would be installed and the homeowner would live with them for as long as they had the house. That is no longer the case!
However, it is very important that the proper care, preparation and planning is done before undertaking a cabinet refinishing project. Much attention needs to be given to the materials the cabinets are made from and the proper products that can be used to refinish them. There are also many steps to the process, if you want to be sure the cabinets come out looking great and the finish will last a long time. Unfortunately, we've had to rescue homeowners from DIY cabinet refinishing projects that they started only to find out the project was much too big for them to accomplish.
When you call on the experts at Progressive Painting Inc. to refinish your cabinets, we'll start by asking you exactly what you'd like us to do. Then we'll evaluate your cabinets to determine what finishes are going to give you the best results. We'll share our evaluation with you and let you know if we think there could be any challenges.
Once we've agreed on a plan, we'll get to work. The process of cabinet refinishing can take multiple days, so we'll be sure to let you know how long we anticipate the job to take and work with you on scheduling. We will work as quickly as we can, but our main focus will be on providing you the quality you are looking for.

Crown & Base Molding Painting
Putting a fresh coat of paint on your molding (also known as trim) can be the perfect finishing touch to a room or house renovation. Whether it's crown molding, base molding, chair rail, casing or decorative molding, a refresh or a new color will make everything look sharp.
Painting molding the right way is not as easy as opening up a can of paint, dipping in a brush and brushing it on the molding. The proper preparation of the wood is critical to ensure it looks excellent when completed and holds up over time. This is especially true for char rail and crown molding, which are both more likely to draw the eye.
While white is the most popular color for molding, off white, gray and even black can also add interesting contrast, as can a more natural wood stain. Some designers recommend painting the trim the same color as the walls. This approach doesn't provide contrast, but it does introduce depth and texture to the walls.
At Progressive Painting Inc. we paint all types of molding in all areas of the house. You can rest assured that we will prepare the trim properly and have it looking just the way you want it to.
Molding painting requires excellent technique because the molding so often borders the ceiling or the floor. You can trust the experts at Progressive Painting Inc. to provide high quality work when painting your trim, with no stray marks left on other surfaces.
If you live in Seattle, Bellevue, Kent, Renton, Federal Way, Des Moines, University Place, Tacoma, Burien, Gig Harbor or other areas of the area and you'd like to have your molding painted by one of the best painting contractors in the area, give us a call today. We'll be happy to give you a free quote for the services you are requesting.
Door Painting & Staining
You can find a lot of information online about how to paint your doors. However, one of those articles describes it as "the ultimate painter's challenge." Door painting and door staining are not like painting a wall in your Seattle, WA area home. It's a process - one that we would highly encourage you to give us a call at Progressive Painting Inc. to take on for you. There are a lot of variables and using certain tools and techniques can make the difference between your door or doors turning out exactly like you were hoping for or as a DIY gone wrong.
When it comes to door painting and door staining in the Seattle area, the first and maybe most important step is always the prep work. Cleaning the door well and then sanding it down are the start. Doors tend to suffer some nicks and scratches that you won't find on other surfaces. Dealing with them in the right way can be tricky.
When you ask us to paint your door or doors, we'll usually ask you to consult with us on the paint. Many homeowners prefer a glossy or at least semi-gloss paint for a front door. What's most important is that the right paint is chosen for the right type of surface so that the paint will cover the surface very well and look good.
For the staining of doors, applying the stain requires careful attention. Consistency, speed and completeness can all be factors in how good the stained door looks. You can be sure that the professional painters at Progressive Painting Inc. will take the proper care in matching up your door to the look you want to see.
Interior Commercial Painting

You don't want to have just any painter taking on your commercial project. You need a professional painting company with experience in successfully completing interior commercial painting jobs.

We'll have no problem handling any challenges and can apply any wall coverings or coatings beyond paint, if necessary.
If your project is a retouch or repaint in a space that is full of furnishings and/or equipment, you can be sure that the team here at Progressive Painting Inc. will take the same great care we do with our residential projects in the Seattle, WA area.

Choosing a paint color can be a challenging experience for a homeowner. We are aware of that and our house painters are happy to help you make the right choice for your home.
One of the most important, but often overlooked, aspects of an interior house painting project is the prep work that is done before a paint brush is even dipped in paint. We pay close attention to that important prep work that will ensure a high-quality result.

If you are looking for a way to add more visual interest to your walls, a textured finish is an excellent option. Orange peel, knockdown and popcorn finishes can all look beautiful in the right place when done the right way. We most often recommend texture spraying for the application.
With the right type of spray gun and expertise, texture spraying provides consistent application in a short period of time. This can be a tricky job for homeowners who have never done it before.
Spraying a texture finish is much different than spraying paint. You need to make sure you've correctly prepared the texture for application. Depending on the type of textured finish you'd like, you need to make sure you are using the correct nozzle. You've got to practice your technique until you've mastered the finish. And then you've got to be sure to apply it as uniformly as possible.
Our experts at Progressive Painting Inc. have consistent experience applying textured finishes with a spray gun and can likely finish the job in much less time than a homeowner at a much higher quality.
Texture spraying is an especially effective way of applying texture to a ceiling. And of course, a textured finish does wonders for masking wall or ceiling imperfections.
When you call on Progressive Painting Inc. for your texture spraying project, you can rest assured that we'll work closely with you to make sure the finish goes on just the way you want it and presents the desired look for your home. And of course, we are happy to paint the walls after applying the texture.

Selecting A Paint Color
Selecting paint is a very personal choice for most people. Many factors need to be considered when it comes to house painting. And with so many colors of paint available, choosing a color can feel like an impossible task.
At Progressive Painting Inc. we work with our customers in the Seattle area to help them find the best paint for the job. Usually it starts with a number of questions, including:
- What area do you want to be painted?
- How visible is the area you want to be painted? Or, how frequently will it be seen by others?
- How is the area used?
- Do you have small children or pets?
- We've not yet gotten to color, but these questions can help us determine the needed quality and sheen for your Seattle area home. Homeowners will often want to have a higher quality paint used in a room more frequently visited by others, like the living room, than they will want to use in a child's bedroom. We'll take that into account.
Sheen is important when you are thinking through how to select paint. You'll want to consider how the room is used and how much you like, or don't like, shiny walls. A gloss or semi-gloss paint can work well in kitchens and play rooms as they'll be easier to wipe clean and will stand up to some "abuse." But, if you don't like shiny walls you won't like gloss or semi-gloss paint.
You may love the effect a flat or matte paint can give a room, but it's important to know that they won't be quite as easy to clean.
Most customers will settle on satin or eggshell when house painting. Some people love, and always use, one or the other. Other customers will choose one or the other depending on the room, using satins for kitchens, bathrooms and children's rooms, and eggshell for living rooms, dining rooms and adult bedrooms.
That brings us to what is most often the challenging part when selecting paint for a home - choosing the color. Again, we'll ask some questions:
What type of style is your house, or do you want it to be? Traditional, contemporary, modern, farmhouse?
- What is your overall preference for paint - warm, cool, other?
- How will the area to be painted tie in to the rest of your home?
- Do you have a focal point for the room that you want to complement?
- Do you want to stay on trend? Would you prefer your home to look timeless, or to match up to a specific style?
These are just some of the many questions that you'll want to ask yourself when you are considering color for house painting projects. We can say that most customers end up being most happy when they factor in the feeling they are trying to create throughout the house instead of just picking a color they like for one room.
It can be easy for homeowners to fall into the current trend. This can be fine if the trend is likely to hold up or if the homeowner doesn't mind painting their home every couple of years. Other customers will be focused on keeping within the style of their home or creating a timeless look that will hold up over many years.
Many people choose to paint their ceilings white or off-white, and that's certainly fine. But, if you are considering a renovation, or just a different look for a room, don't forget about the ceiling. Painting the ceiling can help a room look bigger, or smaller. It can add a swanky feel or a touch of formality. Either way, homeowners usually find that painting a ceiling is much more difficult than painting a wall. So, give Progressive Painting Inc. a call and we'll save you the time, as well as the aches and pains.
