To achieve this major transformation, the Blue Door Painting team painted the entire interior of the home: walls, doors, trim, ceilings, closets and the kitchen cabinets. The color used throughout the unit was a lovely shade of white called Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore in a matte finish. The decision to use a single white color throughout is in keeping with the loft style of the dwelling and enhances the modern and open space yielding a clean, crisp feel which is perfect for a rental apartment.
The Before and After pictures of this project really tell the story. The small apartment was painted in a jumble of colors ranging from blue to purple, peach, green, beige and gray which created a feeling of chaos and confusion. The conversion to pure white complements the loft’s unique architectural elements such as the exposed pipes in the ceilings and gives the home a much brighter and larger feel.
The final and critical component to achieving the full transformation of the space was to paint the kitchen cabinets white and install new door handles. This single step brought the entire unit up to modern rental standards allowing the owner to charge higher rent and making the unit more competitive in the hot Chicago rental market.
