When it comes to home renovations and projects, one common task is repairing damaged plaster and drywall. Damaged drywall such as cracks, holes, and other imperfections, is an eyesore but professional repair will restore your walls to like-new condition so that the focus can be on the beauty of your home. Some homeowners may be tempted to DIY drywall and plaster repairs but hiring professionals for repairs ensures high-quality results that stand the test of time.
You have grown tired of the wallpaper in your home or perhaps it was already there when you bought your home and you are ready for a new look but first – you must remove the wallpaper. There are few tasks more daunting than wallpaper removal. It sticks and rips and never seems to come off in one piece. And, there is usually residue left on the walls after removal. If wallpaper removal is done incorrectly, it could actually damage the walls, leading to costly repairs. Whether you are planning to repaint or replace the wallpaper, it is best to hire a professional to remove the wallpaper so that your walls can be properly prepared for a new look.
You’ve invested in a beautiful home and you want to make it your own but figuring out the best ways to do that in a way that adds value and elevates the style of your home can be challenging. Although paint can make a huge impact on a room, one highly effective way to elevate a space in a truly unique way is with wallcoverings. Wallcoverings such as wallpaper and murals can be used to make a bold and impactful statement or to subtly but uniquely add visual interest, texture, or contrast where you need it most.
Whether being used in a home, office, or other business, wallcoverings instantly elevate any space. Dated forms of wallpaper and murals have gotten a bad rap but today, there are more varieties, options, and ways to customize them than ever before. No matter what the architectural style or interior design aesthetic is, there are wallcoverings that will not only seamlessly integrate but elevate the overall aesthetic of the space.
When used in a small space like a powder room or small bedroom, wallpaper or murals take an ordinary and uninteresting space and make it into something exciting and unique. Or in a large, open space, wallcoverings are a great way to anchor a space, draw the eye where you want it to go, and even add warmth and intimacy where it would be hard to achieve otherwise.
Install wallcoverings on every wall to transform a small space into an immersive aesthetic experience or use it strategically on one wall to add visual interest and direct the eye where you want it to go. And, if you find a wallpaper that you really love but aren’t sure how to incorporate it into the entire room, you can strategically use wallpaper as a large-scale art piece.
The key to achieving the wallcovering results you want is in the installation process. Before installation, it is crucial to prepare the walls properly. This involves cleaning the walls, filling in any holes or cracks, and ensuring the walls are smooth and dry. Uneven walls may require additional preparation to ensure a smooth surface for installation. Work with an experienced wallcovering installer that will properly prepare your walls and install your wallcoverings correctly, ensuring the elevated aesthetic you want is achieved.
The Ablaze Design Group revamped our kitchen and did an amazing job. It is now, finally, our dream kitchen. They took time and care with every step of the process. There were no gaps in days – they came everyday until the job was done. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome or the people who work at ABL!
I love working with Ablaze Design Group! They are very responsive and they are very friendly. I have worked with contractor that was very arrogant, but ABL was very down to earth and was eager to help me get my work done. And I worked with Dina, she very helpful. I am very happy working with ABL.
As a design professional, I know that I can always count on The Ablaze Design Group to provide exceptional customer service, and the highest level quality of work. I give them my highest professional recommendation.
Outstanding work once again. We are in the process of a lot of painting and ABL could not be more helpful and very competitive with their prices. The workers are great, talented and friendly. We have used ABL for 10+ years and no complaints.
Looking for a professional painter look no further. Howard and his team of Jose, Juan and David repainted our kitchen to perfection. From start to finish no issues. Set up – painting and clean up was perfect. Have future projects that we will reach out to ABL for assistance.
The Ablaze Design Group fixed the walls and ceiling in my bedroom, put on new baseboard, painted everything, installed a ceiling fan, fixed the walls in the stairwell and painted it and the hall ceiling. The work was great, the price was fair, they were courteous, accommodating, and they didn’t leave a mess. We are very pleased.
Howard and his team are the best! We needed to update our entry area and dining room, and convert an old iron staircase railing into a modern wooden one. The whole team was easy to work with, started and finished exactly when they said they would, and the result is just beautiful. We are completely satisfied and will hire them again. Many thanks!
From the first visit by the owner through insurance quotes and design iterations to the many phases of our fully gutted kitchen rehab, the experience could not have been better. We love LOVE our new kitchen. The memory of the experience with ABL is a very good one. WOW
