Bold paint choice makes master bathroom pop with color
Angie’s List member Susan L. of Glenview, Illinois, disliked her home’s wall paint since she bought the house in the summer of 2012.
“It was a beige flat finish paint that scuffed and showed marks very easily,” she says. “Once I tiled my bathroom and installed a new bathroom fan, I didn’t have the original color to do any touch-ups, so I knew I needed a new color for the walls and new white paint for the ceiling.”
After searching painters on Angie’s List, she chose highly rated North Shore Painting & Restoration in Elmwood Park, Illinois, in part due to owner Jiri Vojtech’s quick response time. She was also impressed that, in addition to receiving a free estimate and a discount for being an Angie’s List member, Vojtech emailed the estimate with a copy of his company’s insurance policy, without Susan even having to ask for it first.
Susan's project consisted of painting the master bathroom, hallway bathroom, a large bedroom, a laundry room, all ceilings in her home, window trim and mirror trim, a job that totaled $1,200. Before North Shore painted the master bathroom, it was soft beige in color. When Susan chose new paint, she went with blue, to bring the room to life and make the walls pop with color. “The rest of my house is fairly neutral, so for the master bathroom, I wanted to pick a color that would highlight all the new white tile,” she says.
Susan says her favorite part of the job was working with the crew at North Shore and their meticulous work. She says she appreciates that the work was completed on time and within her budget. “There are no drips, and the lines are sharp,” she says. “What makes North Shore Painting & Restoration different is that Jiri and his workers are consistently pleasant and easy to work with. They are never gruff, they are always polite, do quality work and take pride in doing the job perfectly.”
She says there was only one minor hiccup in the job, but North Shore addressed it so quickly that it only contributed to her positive experience with the painting project. “The project was basically flawless,” she says. “When I found a small spot that needed a touch-up after the work was done, Jiri promptly came back and painted it himself for free.”
