Furniture painting is the way to go these days. Buying something new on a whim to replace existing, functional furniture is becoming a bit passé. Where can you go in Singapore for this kind of service?
Local home-painting company Retro Dec has grown from refurbishing buildings; changing lanes into furniture restoration and interior styling seemed like a natural progression. Director Ronnie set the company up in 1995 and has loads of experience in all areas.
One of Retro Dec’s signature services is furniture whitewashing. The great thing about this process is that it transforms your wooden furniture without smothering the grain. That way, you get to retain the detail and texture of a piece while giving it a dapper new finish.
This look is also popular because of its versatility. Whitewashed pieces can be integrated into many different styles, useful for both indoor and outdoor settings. It means you can complement the tropical, alfresco feel of a lot of Singapore’s outdoor spaces, and it works as a welcome addition to any balcony, dining room or courtyard.
Another popular and on-trend service offered by Retro Dec is distressing. This is when furniture is intentionally restored to give it a lived-in look and feel. (Clean lines and block colours aren’t the order of the day for everyone!) The rustic and vintage look has had legs for at least the last 10 years, and there is no sign of that changing anytime soon – so, ask how the Retro Dec restoration team can give your furniture a bit of personality and a more pre-loved vibe.
It’s difficult to maintain a fresh and individual-looking space when you move home (or country) frequently, especially if you can’t afford the investment of buying unique pieces every time. Because you may not have the time or know where to go, your home starts to look the same as everyone else who’s just moved here, or moved home (again!). This no longer needs to be the case. If you have any pieces that need some resuscitation, the team at Retro Dec are at the ready with a little “CPR” – colour, polish and restore!
If you have a piece that’s looking tired or bland, why not check it in for a slick new makeover? Get in touch with the Retro Dec team by visiting retro-dec.com/getaquote for a quote. You can also WhatsApp them at 9823 1248.
