Interior Paint - Walls By Design
Starting a full-time Denver painting company provided many challenges: hiring the right people, determining how to advertise, and what would make Walls by Design different from other painting contractors. Nick decided to focus on custom home painting. Not commercial. Not new construction. AND NOT apartment painting. As we have grown in size, we have transformed a few times. In the beginning we painted only exterior, then added interior and faux finishing, added wallpaper and murals for a time. After really figuring out what we were truely good at, we stepped away from faux finishing, exterior painting, and as of 2015, we no longer do any staining. We just focus on interior painting with a specialization in cabinet painting. We decided to be the best at the niche of residential interior painting in Denver, and we think we do it better, and more efficient than anyone.
