Purple, mauve and lavender popping everywhere. Purple is trendy this season.
It is OK to go grey. Colour experts Mark McCauley, ASID, and Barbara Jacobs help you master those neutral colours.
Living tiny is a novelty for some. For others, it’s a legitimate way of life. And then there are the rest of us who aren’t entirely certain which tiny house style suits us best, if at all.
Your front door will give a first good impression to your guests. It is important to pick the right colour and pastels are a great choice.
We’ve been hopping all around the Lower Mainland during this busy spring season, from commercial painting in Maple Ridge to crown moulding installation in Langley, but today we’re relaxing with our families and eating plenty of chocolate eggs.
All of us at Benchmark Painting would like to wish you a Happy Easter!
The first day of spring is here and we are looking forward to getting some fresh air! Usually the season for spring cleaning and gardening, spring is also an ideal season for exterior painting.
The temperate climate in spring is perfect for painting. And after a windy, wet and cold winter, your home’s exterior siding and trim may need a fresh coat of paint.
Make your home pop with a bright colour painted on the front door, clean and crisp window trim and solid siding with no fading or green stains from mould and mildew.
With a professional paint makeover your home will be as fresh and bright as those spring blossoms!
Thinking of selling your house soon? A fresh coat of paint is a great way to show off your home in the best light. Re-painting is a relatively inexpensive way to prepare your house to sell, and may even help to sell your home quicker and/or for a higher price.
Both interior and exterior painting can transform your home in a way that draws buyers in and leaves them impressed. Curb appeal is the first impression buyers have of your house, and interior walls reveal if you have taken good care of it.
Before you put your house on the market, start with a professional paint application of modern colours. Benchmark Painting is the best professional painting company in the Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver area.

With wear and tear, your walls can start to look old and scruffy. Sometimes we get used to the change over time, and hardly notice how sad our walls have become. Here are four signs that your walls could use a fresh coat of paint:
- Scuffs. Scuffs can happen when we bump into a wall with the vacuum cleaner, toys and various other objects. The colour is transferred onto the paint and doesn’t wash off.
- Water marks. Sometimes excess moisture in the air from showers and cooking can condense on your walls and leave subtle but stubborn water marks on the paint.
- Stains. If you have kids or pets, you probably have some stains on your walls from various substances that don’t wipe off no matter how hard you try.
- Dents. Sometimes bumps to the walls cause more damage than a little scuff. Moving furniture and decor can easily result in dents in your walls, which really age the look of your home.
Take a good look at your walls, you may find a few of these signs that you need to re-paint. The good news it that you can get some very high quality and durable paint these days, which decreases wear and tear on your walls and is easily washable.

Professional painters always have the right paintbrush for the job, use quality paint and primer, and are very skilled in painting techniques. However, the key to a professional looking paint application is: surface preparation.
Many amateur painters overlook the need to prepare the surface properly before painting. They are eager to get started and see the results quicker, so they do minimal, if any, surface preparation. The result is a newly painted wall full of blemishes like bumps, cracks and holes.
Here is how to prepare a surface for painting like a professional:
- Repair drywall cracks with putty and sand down to an even finish.
- Fill nail holes and other imperfections with putty and sand flat.
- Wipe dust and dirt from walls.
Benchmark Painting always takes the time to prepare surfaces before painting for a professional paint application.
Don’t worry, there’s still time to makeover your living space with freshly painted walls and even custom moulding installation. Create an inviting space that welcomes your guests and is worthy of your biggest celebrations.
