High school sweethearts Lawrence and Gail Hellings love living in their hometown of Bradford and being the independent owners and operators of Decorator’s Edge, which they opened in 1991. With Lawrence’s background in the industry (he worked in a paint store and his father was a house painter), the couple felt confident in offering high-quality Benjamin Moore paints, alongside Merit Decor flooring, wallpaper, painting accessories, and consulting advice. Now, as people in their community remain socially distant to help flatten the curve of the pandemic, they are using their years of expert knowledge to help the many homeowners tackling projects around the house.
“Now is a great time to paint,” says Lawrence and Gail. “Not only is there time to do those projects homeowners have been wanting to take care of, painting is also very therapeutic too. It helps fill the hours while being productive. At the end, you get a beautiful, personalized, long-lasting result.”
They encourage you to take advantage of this time to beautify your home. Some of the benefits of interior painting and flooring include:
Increased home value
Sometimes all it takes to refresh and modernize a space is a coat of paint and some updated flooring, especially if you plan to list the home soon.
Reduced dust and hidden imperfections
Small nicks and dings are taken care before the paint goes on, which rejuvenates worn-out walls. Modern paint is formulated to be easy to clean, so wiping down walls is quick and easy.
Matching your mood
Is your house full of high energy with kids and pets supplying the home with laughter? Pale yellow captures this boundless spirit. Is your home your private oasis where you escape to after a busy day? Calming blues or earth tones can help you with that.
Falling in love with your home again
You will be shocked at how paint, flooring, and/or wallpaper can completely transform a space. In the mood for something different? Refresh a room in your home and it will feel new to you all over again.
