Staying current.

We know that design is ever evolving and so is technology. We strive to keep up with the latest in application techniques, paint products, and color trends. We also see great value in working alongside interior designers, general contractors, and even other painting crews to make sure our knowledge is broad and that we're utilizing the most current tricks of the painting trade.

Don't try this at home. 

Nothing is more painful for us than seeing a new kitchen remodel, or a beautiful home or restuarant, that was finished off with a low quality paint job. We have come to the rescue countless times when a homeowner is in panic mode because her DIY paint job is scratching off with a fingernail or she hired a painter who can't produce the professional results she was hoping for. Do it right the first time with Next Door Interiors. 

How do we bid a paint job?

Who are Allie and Jake?

Our backgrounds are in fine art, graphic and industrial design, and business. When we aren't painting we are working on our own renovation project.  Jake is also a freelance stencil artist and produces and sells his work when he can find the time. Together we have 10 years of experience painting. How did we get started painting? When I was getting my design degree, during my summers off I worked on a painting crew and while learning the ropes, I developed a love for the dramatic before and afters we were providing our customers. I met my future husband, Jake Kashuk, who was also painting part time and we quickly realized we should have a business of our own. We started our business together in Milwaukee and though business was good, I longed to make the move back to my hometown of Des Moines. Our happy customers spread the word, and after only a year in Des Moines, Next Door Interiors is growing faster than we can paint! 

A standard 12 x 12 room is typically bid between $175 and $350. Various details of the job affect this price, such as wall height and texture, gaps that need caulking, types of trim and molding, current state and color of walls, and the number of windows/doorways in the room. We bid our jobs competitively, and we work efficiently, but we always take the time to perfect every detail of a paint job. That's the difference with Next Door Interiors.

We use Sherwin Williams paint almost exclusively. We can tint our preferred products to any brand's colors (Ben Moore, Valspar, Restoration Hardware, etc.). With the help of our favorite products and techniques, you'll be given razor sharp cut in lines, and velvety smooth walls and trim. We aim for zero roller marks, brush strokes, drips, or spatter. We want other painters to see our work and wonder, "How'd they do that?"
