When should you paint
your home?



Just because Crown Molding began being used in King’s Castles, does not mean it is in anyway outdated!! Crown molding has remained the exclusive highlight in the homes of the rich and famous because, well, quite frankly, it is the beautiful crown of your walls! It not only takes the eye up the walls to give the illusion of higher ceilings but many also use it to add some depth and visual interest to the walls.

Painting crown molding, baseboards, window frames and chair rails is ALWAYS the easiest way to update your home and draw attention to their beauty. When you paint your walls, you get a big lift but it can leave your trim looks dingy and scuffed. Why not paint it all once in a while in between paintings, nothing else indoors can make your home look like new again!


There is a specific way we recommend updating your existing crown molding with paint because it is so much easier to do when you’re also painting the walls. The most important thing to remember is that you need to paint all the components of your room in the right order. Start from the top and work your way down and we at TROMBLEY PAINTING COMPANY recommend that you do the first coat on your molding, then paint the ceiling, followed by another coat on your molding or trim, and then get to work on painting the walls. It is just much easier to do small touchups on the trim than it is to clean up paint splatters on the walls themselves. We ALL know how spots and splatters ruin the look of a new paint job when you do not use a professional.


Yes, of course we are going to recommend that you paint it all! We are a painting company, but there is good reason to also paint your windows and door trim at the same time for a beautiful fresh new beginning!  Look around and look for all of life’s bumps and bruises on your surfaces and repair them. If anything is worth doing, do it right the first time, right? This is for the obvious reasons, you are paying out all that money to paint your walls and if you paint without smoothing out the surface first, the imperfections will seem to be more noticeably than even before.

This usually does not take that long and then you’re ready to paint! With doors and windows, we recommend  to use a brush on any detailed areas and then roll the smoother parts. It can be a bit tricky to get a smooth finish, so that is, of course, why we recommend using Trombley Painting Company to take care of it for you.
Yes, of course baseboards are another common design feature in most homes. Again, if you’re updating the wall color in your room, it’s a good idea to paint all the trim (including the baseboards) at the same time. One thing that makes painting baseboards a bit different is that sometimes it makes more sense to remove them before you paint them. In most cases, it’s easy to paint them while they’re in place, but there are certain circumstances in which it’s best to remove them first. If you’re unsure, consult a professional painting company. Baseboards should typically be done at the same time as the rest of the trim, whether you choose to do them before or after the walls. The key to ensuring a smooth finish is getting the prep work done properly. Baseboards tend to get dirty much quicker than other surfaces, so you want to make sure they’re cleaned thoroughly before you get started with painting. Common cleaning techniques are using TSP and water or just plain soapy water and a clean cloth. While it is preferable to make any repairs to holes and dents, just cleaning them helps you to start with a nice clean and smooth surface. If you’re concerned about all the prep work required with painting crown molding, windows, doors, trim, and baseboards, it’s worth hiring professional painters to take care of it for you.
