Hallway and Stairway Décor

There are many ways to decorate a vacant area such as a hallway or a stairway.  D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling believes that a hallway can be used for multiple purposes such as:  A timeline to reminisce on your lives, mirrors for when you gotta run out and make sure you look decent, or artwork you appreciate.

A Timeline of Your Favorite Moments
These are probably the most popular to put in a hallway.  Whether it’s your life you want to look back on and feel fulfilled, photos of you and your significant other and how your love has prospered, or photos of your children to see how they grow before your eyes!  Bring extra volume by arranging by size, shape, or color!

Mirrors Here, There and Anywhere
While having a mirror nearby to make sure your hair looks combed is useful, these actually have a way of making your walls seem bigger than they really are.   They’ll also add some brightness to your home!

Wall Gallery
Do you have a favorite artist that you want to include in your home?  Centering the artwork in a visible area gives it a lot of focus.  If you have a lot of space in your stairway or hall, a big canvas will certainly make your home look timeless.  Smaller areas should go with smaller canvases, but you can certainly go with more than one!

Keeping it Simple
Less can certainly mean more.  Put in a rug, a shelving unit, or a small table to make your hallway appear bigger.  The décor will grab your guest’s attention if there’s only one area of focus.

We at D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling Inc. think an empty area shouldn't be too bland for your taste.  Make the most of your hallway or stairway by adding things you want to pass by every day.

Don't you love it when the trees lush with color?

Keeping Your Work Space Organized

Keeping Your Work Space Organized
You're a busy person whether you're at the office or at home.  Make your busy work simple: everything has a designated, accessible place.  D.J's Painting and Remodeling Inc. knows how to make your work space neat and organized.

Activity Area
Whether it's using a computer, drawing, crafting, or any craft, your designated working area operates efficiently when clear of clutter.  Keep items that you use frequently close (such as pens, post-its or scissors), and anything that's more for referencing or less frequent tools stored nearby. Items such as printers, scanners, and copiers can be placed on your work desk if the space allows.  Investing in a big desk with built-in storage might be to your benefit if you have a lot of tools to use.

Is your office also your library?  Appropriate shelving can make your workspace also a place for knowledge.  Built-in shelves  give you comfortable space to put more furniture such as cabinets or chairs.  Shelving above your work desk can be useful for reference binders and miscellaneous supplies.  Be sure to organize your items, whether by importance, category, or alphabetically.

These are optimal for storage of stocked up supplies.  It's better to have them lower than the shelves.  High cabinets may require a ladder or step stool if you feel you need them.

Whether you're thinking of putting in additional cabinets, shelving, or maybe a built-in desk, D.J.'s Painting and Remodeling Inc. knows your office should be built the way you want it to work for you.  Stay focused!

Introducing Your Home

A Welcoming Foyer

Don’t we all feel at ease when we finally get home after a long day?  D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling Inc. has the expertise for what kind of pattern you want to come home to.  Give your guests a welcoming first impression when they walk through the door!

Colors and Lights

Your foyer can either have a similar or different layout than the rest of the house.  Think of the color and lighting that you want to really “wow” your guests with, because that’s usually the first things they notice.  Would you have an elegant chandelier or some modern lamps?  Door windows will also reflect your patterns especially during the day time.

Introducing Your House and You

Your foyer should speak personality to your guests.  Adding things like bookshelves, plants, chairs, trunks, pictures, even mini bars can introduce your taste to your guests.  If you’re having a big party, your guests can keep themselves entertained right by the door! 


These are what necessarily tie the room together.  You can also have different flooring set by your entryway.  Your guests will definitely notice when they’re taking off their shoes.  Give them something to look at!

Make It Welcoming to You Most Importantly

Have your favorite chair be the first thing you think of when you’re about to walk through the door.  A beautiful flower or your favorite picture can make you feel at ease.  With our help, D.J.'s Painting and Remodeling Inc. will know how to make you feel "finally at home."
