By offering both painting and tiling services, we aim to provide a hassle-free experience for our clients, allowing them to achieve their desired aesthetic with convenience and efficiency.

  • Gilding: Our artisans apply thin sheets of gold, silver, or other metals to surfaces for a luxurious, opulent effect.

  • Crackle Glaze: A specialized paint or glaze is applied over a base coat to create a cracked, aged appearance.
  • Chalkboard Paint: We offer a type of paint that turns surfaces into an erasable chalkboard, perfect for creative spaces or children’s rooms.
  • Magnetic Paint: Our magnetic paint contains metal particles that create a surface where magnets can stick, often used in kitchens or kids’ play areas.
  • Epoxy Coatings: We provide durable, high-gloss finishes often used on floors or countertops for a sleek, modern look.
  • Lime Wash: Our breathable, natural paint finish creates a soft, weathered effect, ideal for rustic or historical properties.
