Condo and townhome owners in NYC often look to update their living spaces with new paint in colors that better suit their personalities, lifestyles, and existing furnishings. Meanwhile, lofts and studios are favorite living quarters of NYC artists, who may be very skilled with a paintbrush on canvas but can benefit from a little professional help with painting the high ceilings and tight spaces in their homes.
New Yorkers are notoriously busy people with too much to do and too little time. Fortunately, Paintzen makes quality house painting easy by offering fast and free digital quotes without a walkthrough. This way, you can make home update decisions when its convenient for you and then have our licensed, insured and certified crews come out within 72 hours.
Architect Peter Feigenbaum found Jonathan Barsness’s name on a painter forum on Brownstoner. A litany of positive reviews (from one: “does good work — and I’m fussy”) convinced Feigenbaum to book him to repaint a spare room in his Williamsburg apartment. The walls had “a lot of patch marks and chips and were an especially ugly color: mustard yellow,” says Feigenbaum. “After Barsness came, all the old crusty bits miraculously disappeared, and the questionable paint-color choice was replaced with relaxing grays.” Barsness’s precision and (relatively) low pricing (small rooms, like a nursery, start at $500, while a bedroom in a brownstone with tall ceilings and historic molding may start at $2,000) mean his customers tend to come back over and over — like Feigenbaum. “He doesn’t need a lot of hand-holding,” he says. “I’ll hand him a swatch, leave him a key, and he takes it from there.”
Certain architectural styles define the essence of New York City, such as Art Deco, Italianate, Post-Modern, Deconstructivism, Beaux-Arts, and Gothic Revival. Our five boroughs: Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Staten Island are a melting pot of cultures, and this diversity is reflected in how homes are built, designed, and updated by their owners.
