Ceilings - the 5th Wall

When redoing a room, don’t fail to consider how your fifth wall – the ceiling – can help enhance and beautify the space. In the right circumstances, adding color to the ceiling can make a big difference in the appearance, ambience, and character of a room.

Dramatic Staircases

What is more dramatic that a beautiful staircase? They can be tricky from painting or using wallcoverings on curving walls, to intricate balusters and newels and volutes. Old Village Master Painters has helped create beautiful looks for staircases in many fine homes, and our Design Studio has worked magic on a number of handrails with custom stains and french polishes.

First Impressions - Doors!

Doors are one of the main focal points, both exterior and interior. We can help make them spectacular with classic whites, glossy colors from Fine Paints of Europe, or special and unique finishes from the Old Village Design Studio.

Windows

The original windows in your old or historic home are part of the character of the building and part of what makes it unique. Old Village can safely remove any old paint - including lead paint - either on -site or off using our new EnveloStrip™ paint removal process, and then restore and finish them to like-new (or better) condition - improving both your facade and the energy efficiency of your home. We also offer excellent storm windows that are not only extremely energy efficient but are installed on the interior - to maintain the look and character of your home.

Cabinets

Old Cabinets (and drawers) often need restoration or sometimes just a new look. Old Village can restore old cabinets using our EnveloStrip Paint Removal process to remove old paint, varnish and other finishes. We can then apply a new factory finish in any color - or create a custom finish to make your old (or new) cabinets unique!

Dark Colors

When creating an interior color scheme, many people play it “safe” by sticking with off-whites, tans, and taupes. And while there are plenty of good reasons to favor these neutrals, a fear of dark colors shouldn’t be one of them.

Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors are a special feature in both older (historical) and new homes that are not only functional but can also pull a room together. We can restore older floors and create durable, protective and beautiful finishes such as fumed oak, ceruse, wood washes, pickling and more so your floors become a beautiful part of your traditional or historic space - or a great contrast with more modern design elements.

Specialty Polymer Flooring

Polymer Epoxy Flooring is a beautiful and durable option for both commercial and residential applications. Its toughness, water and dirt resistance make it great for home workshops and garages - dropped tools and dirty tires won't hurt it - basements and even bathrooms and kitchens. It looks great in a showroom for your classic cars and is tough enough to stand up to the harsh conditions of a commercial car wash.
