Choosing the Right Paint Color for Your Interior

Is it about time to put a new coat of paint on the walls? You might be deliberating about what the best color for your home is. Premier Group Contractors has a lot of experience with painting people’s walls. Therefore, we want to give a little advice to those of you who are struggling to pick a color. After all, we’ve all been there!

Consider Favorites

To start off, what are your favorite colors? Some people forego consideration of their favorite colors because they think they’ll be too bright or stand out too much. The truth is, there’s a good way to use almost any color for painting. Even if you like particularly bright colors, there’s a way you can incorporate that into your walls if you’d like to.

If you’re not really sure what your favorite colors are, or like too many to pick, narrowing them down is easier than it seems. Try thinking of things that make you happy. Do plants make you particularly joyful? Maybe you like spicy food? No matter what kind of thing you think of first, there’s a way to turn that into paint.

Plants could lead to a shade of earthy green or brown. You could even pick the color of your favorite flowers. Spicy food could mean a dark red or burnt orange. No matter what your favorite things are, you can pull a color from it. Then, whenever you see that color, you’ll remember the things it’s associated with. People tend to underestimate how powerful color association is. Take advantage of that!

How to Avoid ‘Too Bright’

If you like a particularly saturated color – in laymen’s terms, one considered very bright – here’s how to use it without overdoing it. There are multiple ways you can do this.

  • Create a focus wall. A focus wall is one or, sometimes, two walls that you paint with a bright color. The other walls in the room are painted with a more neutral paint color that pairs well with the focus wall. For instance, if you want to use red paint, but don’t want to overwhelm the room with red, you can paint one wall red while painting the rest a nice cream color. If you want it a little darker, consider a light brown instead of cream.
  • Use a less saturated base color and use your preferred color as an accent. Using the colors from the last example, that could mean painting all the walls with cream and then using shaped sponges to create red stamps on the walls. 
  • If sponging isn’t your preferred design choice, you could also use taping. At, perhaps, a foot from the top of the wall, create a line of tape all the way around the room. If it’s important to you that it’s level, use a bubble level to ensure the tape is places correctly. Then, paint the section between the top of the wall and the tape. When the paint is completely dry, pull the tape off and you’ll have a neat line at the edge of your painted section. You can repeat this as far down the wall as you please, perhaps creating narrower and narrower strips. This will add that touch of red you’re looking for without flooding the room with it.

Hire Professionals

When it comes time to paint, it’s a lot easier said than done. If you don’t feel like committing to a day of long, hard, and thankless work, repainting your living room, or even more time for even more rooms, hire professionals. Because we at Premier Group Contractors work as a team and have years of experience with this kind of work, we make it look easy. Plus, we do a great job! Give us a call if you have a paint job that needs to be done in Toronto. We’re happy to help.

Let Premier Rebuild Your Garage Better than Ever

When you’ve lived somewhere for a while, you’ll find that one of the parts of your property that ages the worst is the garage. Old garages tend to collect bugs, nests, and damage like no other part of the house. That’s because people aren’t often in the garage and, when they are, they’re usually getting in the car to leave. When you’ve had enough of your old garage, it’s time to invest in a new one. Here’s how Premier Group Contractors can help you rebuild your garage.


If you’re still attached to the garage you have or you don’t have the budget for a replacement, repair is the way to go. Repairing a garage can mean:

  • Replacing or fixing windows. If your garage has windows that are broken or have cracks in the frame, it’s a great way for bugs or animals to get in. You don’t want that. To avoid unwanted pests in your garage, get windows replaced.
  • Replacing or fixing the garage door. Old garage doors often begin to break down. This can lead to gaps where pests can get in or even allow someone to break in easier.
  • Fixing a leaky roof. Garages frequently fall victim to a leaks because they’re not monitored the way the rest of the house is. Plus, once a leak is noticed, it’s not always seen as an emergency.


It’s time to rebuild your garage if it isn’t worth the money it would cost to repair it. Rebuilding your garage adds a lot more to your quality of life than you realize. With a rebuilt garage:

  • You can finally start that workbench you’ve always wanted. With somewhere to keep your tools that’s easily accessible, projects and DIY home improvement are easier than ever.
  • You can store food in extra garage space without animals getting into it. Cans or bottles of soda, a freezer of stockpiled food, or a shelf full of jarred preserves will all be safe.
  • Bicycles and vehicles are safe from harsh weather. Snow and rain are a surefire way to get rust on any exposed metal. Protect your belongings by keeping them inside your new garage.

Finished Garage

When you rebuild your garage, you can even go for something higher quality than your old one ever was. By having a finished garage built, your garage will be better insulated, more flexible in use, and higher in value. If you plan to sell your house, having a finished garage will raise the going price for sure. That’s because a finished garage is great for keeping vehicles safe, for use as a storage room, and even for conversion into a bedroom. There are so many things you can do with a finished garage.

If you have an old garage that needs a little (or a lot of) help, Premier Group Contractors are ready for the job. Give us a call and we’ll answer any questions you may have about the building process. We look forward to hearing from you!

Hiring Professionals for your New Flooring Installation

When it’s time for home improvement, costs can be intimidating. Some people try to cut down on costs by doing things themselves. The problem is, not everything is DIY material. Painting, while it may look better when done by a professional, can be done yourself. Replacing a sink could even be done yourself if you can find the know-how you need online. Flooring installation, however, should be handled by a professional. Here’s why:

Safety Concerns

When replacing flooring, there are a number of safety concerns that people don’t often realize exist. Tearing out old flooring means encountering splinters, old nails, staples, and a variety of other things. These can all cut you and leave you with a nasty infection. The last thing you want is your DIY flooring project getting stopped midway through because you have to go get stitches.

Complex Installation

Not only are there safety concerns, installing flooring isn’t as easy as you may believe. There are a large number of small slip-ups you can make that will ruin all of your progress. From damaging the subfloor to badly cut boards, being inexperienced has its downfalls. Therefore, you should leave flooring installation to professionals who have been at it for 15 years and counting

Manual Labor

While complexity and safety may not concern you, what you should also heavily consider is the manual labor. There’s a reason professionals charge what they do for installations like this. The work is hard and dirty. While many people gain joy from hard, manual labor, you should consider if it’s worth it to you personally. Would you rather appreciate the finished product without the backbreaking effort? If so, you know what to do.

Hiring Professionals

When you hire professionals, you secure a number of benefits. Not only do you guarantee your own safety, you guarantee a job well done. Plus, when there’s a whole team working on your floors, the job gets done much faster. Working by yourself can be a slow process and leave your home without proper flooring for days or weeks. When you have a team laying down flooring, it gets done efficiently, as fast as it can be done while still remaining top of the line quality.

Today’s Top 4 Bathroom Renovation Trends

After kitchens, bathrooms are the most commonly renovated rooms in the modern household.  Taking a cue from trendy restaurant and bar restrooms, household bathrooms have gained the potential to become Instagrammable spaces rather than solely functional rooms. Here’s a list of today’s top 4 bathroom renovation trends to help you create an area worthy of showing off to the world.   

Bathroom Fixtures


The first thing the eye is drawn to in any bathroom are the fixtures:  shower, tub, sink and toilet.  With today’s deluxe fixtures which can include walk-in showers, double sinks, free standing tubs and high tech toilets, the modern homeowner has a large variety from which to choose.  Select a fixture that can become the focal point of the bathroom and add the rest to accentuate.  Whether pursuing an ultra-modern or rustic sensibility, choosing the right fixtures will go a long way to setting the tone of the room.     




With smart technology becoming more common in everyday places such as the car, living room and kitchen, why not bring your bathroom into the 21rst century?  Toilets are available with heated seats, nightlights and self-cleaning technologies.  Showers and tubs can be fitted with waterproof music and television systems.  Sinks have touchless technology helping prevent the spread of germs.  In addition, water conservation innovations are geared towards saving money and the environment.




Bathroom tiles that have recent gained popularity include raw and natural materials such as concrete or marble. Both lend a classic look while being thoroughly modern.  Continuing with the natural and raw trend are tiles that simulate the look of brick or wood.  At the time of tile installation, underfloor heating is also a popular choice to make the morning ablutions a little more appealing.


Modernist Comfort


A modern twist on old style comfort is leading the way in current bathroom renovations.  Plenty of natural light coming from large windows complemented with natural or faux natural tiling materials will accent sleek, minimalist new fixtures.  The addition of the newest innovations in water conservation, entertainment systems and touchless technologies bring the bathroom into the 21rst century.  By joining high tech innovations with old school coziness, today’s bathrooms have become a focal point in the modern household.

Simple Decorating Tips To Make Your Home Office Look Modern And Stylish

In this day and age more and more people are working “remotely” or out of their own homes.  With this change in location comes the added task of setting up a home office.  Here are some simple decorating tips that can make your home office look modern and stylish.

The Desk

One of the most important parts of any office is the main work area – typically a desk.  Taking into account the space available to you, try and get the largest desk possible.  Not only will it allow you ample space to do your work, it will make it easier to keep things organized and looking tidy.

The Chair

Along with the desk, a good chair is just as important.  You will, after all, be spending most of your office time sitting in it.  Choosing a rolling or stable chair depends upon your preference, but do not skimp when it comes to a comfortable place to set your derriere.


Although your office area likely has overhead lighting already, investing in some quality lamps can really change the look of your office space.  Lamps will add style and ambience as well as give you appropriate light for different tasks.


Adding carpet or rug to an office will not only give you a warmer and more comfortable space for your feet, it can add to the overall decor of the office.  You may also want to add a plastic chair mat to allow easy movement of your chair without ruining your carpet, rug or floor.


Rather than keep stacks of papers, books and office supplies on your desk, take note of the organizational habit known as “mise en place” –  French for “everything in its place.”  Depending on your type of work, bookshelves, filing cabinets and various receptacles will keep your working space neat and organized.


Accessories will bring out the personality of your office, so choose them according to the type of work you do and the style you want to project.  Whether it’s a matching desk set, works of art, or coordinated furnishings such as curtains or cabinets, tailor your acquisitions to the type of work you do.

Setting up a modern and stylish home office means thinking about a handful of key pieces.  Keep these in mind when imagining your office as a whole.  Tying these key pieces together will result in an office that you will be happy to spend time in.
