Faux Finishing

Faux FinishingSince 1995, when I first started doing Faux Finishing, almost every homeowner that I met with on an interior painting estimate has asked me many of the same questions.

Is Faux Finishing still as popular as it used to be. What are the advantages of Faux Finishing vs Wallpaper. I have wallpaper in my bathroom and kitchen now, and I would like to get it removed, should I put in a different wallpaper or should I have a Faux Finish in the room? What can you do with these columns in my entrance foyer?

I'll bet some of  these same questions have crossed your mind a time or two.  Well what I tell my clients is, yes Faux Finishing is still as popular as always.  Every homeowner is different, many homeowners like the look of Faux and are tired of wallpaper, many homeowners are not quite sure exactly what a Faux Finish is.  Many clients hate the process of removing the wallpaper and the mess it makes.  The nice thing about Faux, when you get tired of it, you just paint over it, where with wallpaper it is not quite as simple.
