One of the most common areas that will make your home look dated and worn is the woodwork. What seems inconspicuous while surrounding doors, windows, and baseboards are really a focal point that draws attention: How they draw attention can make or break a room. Withered, cracked, faded, and battered wood certainly draws attention but in a way that makes a room no matter how nicely decorated look shabby. Scruffy cabinets in kitchens, bathrooms, or shelving in family and living rooms destroy the appeal of a home. Replacing those wood surfaces is expensive and in many cases unnecessary. A whole new surface can be created by simply restoring the natural beauty of the existing wood.

Wood preserving is an art form that gives old trim and wood surfaces in your home shine and draw attention in a good way. Wood that has been restored to its lustrous shine gives a warm framework for your furnishings, wall décor, and windows. The experts at Kunst Bros. bring their experience to the homes of San Francisco, Sonoma, and Marin counties to give their customers a living space they can be proud to come home to and entertain in. The Kunst Bros. can preserve antique finishes, modernize unintentionally weathered or worn wood, or create a rustic appearance to your motif.

If you prefer a textured appearance the Kunst Bros. can apply a variety of paint techniques to give the illusion of leather or mottling. They can use stencils to add texture to your less detailed wood and make a faint wood pattern bolder. Let them guide you to the best way to make your rooms come to life with the bold framing of a high quality wood finish.

Restoring wood begins with a thorough stripping of old varnish and stain. Then the surface is sanded to a rejuvenated finish that is smooth and as blemish free as possible. After that the wood can be re-stained its original color or any color of your choosing, resealed and it will look brand new again. Each step is as important as the others and the Kunst Bros. will give their full attention to the entire process.

When you are looking to refinish the wood surfaces in your home there are two options available. You can either paint or stain the wood to revitalize old worn out finishes, touch up nicks or cracks, and make it shine like new again. There are several reasons to choose paint. One reason people decide to paint wood surfaces, especially cabinetry and shelving is to add new dimension to a room. Light paint can brighten a dark room or make smaller rooms look larger. Dark paint on wood surfaces can hide a multitude of sins, add a deeper tone to surrounding décor, or pull together a motif for a room.

Staining

Traditionally wood surfaces are stained and there are several choices in types of stains and finishes that can be used to change the atmosphere of a room. The wood surfaces of a room provide a framework for walls, doors and windows as well as broader surfaces such as shelves, or major wall coverings in kitchens and bathrooms. These surfaces have a much greater impact on the feel of a room than many people give them credit for and they are often ignored when do-it-yourselfers attempt to repaint walls or change the appearance of their rooms.
