Designers have a lot on their plates, from specifying products to satisfying client demands—an endless array of factors play into the aesthetic of a given interior, especially paint. Whether a space is in the midst of a total renovation or a slight update, paint is one of the most transformative elements in a designer's toolbox; it sets the tone for the palette and mood of an entire room. But applying a fresh coat of color to walls large and small often is a tedious and time-consuming project, at least until now.
Paintzen, a digital on-demand booking platform that connects professional painters with a range of clients, recently launched a design trade program that offers exclusive perks and services to its members, including access to hundreds of experienced painters and wallpaper installers across the country. The best part? It's incredibly efficient, easy to use, and equipped to service clients in 11 markets nationwide. The platform's remote access enables designers to quickly service clients in cities beyond their hometowns and, ultimately, expand business opportunities.
Joining the platform is an effortless process. Interior designers, decorators, home staging experts, real estate professionals, and others in the industry simply sign up through the Paintzen website as a trade partner. Shortly after registration, each trade partner is assigned a project advisor to review floor plans, drawings, photos, and project scope. Then the painting begins.
“We’re truly thrilled to launch this program, as it allows design professionals to complete their painting and remodeling projects more seamlessly than ever,” said Kristen Chuber, senior director of marketing at Paintzen. "We have received feedback from designers who expressed how hard it can be to find a professional, reliable painter or wallpaper installer for their clients on a tight timeline. At Paintzen we understand that when we're working with a designer, it's of utmost importance that we deliver to the quality that he or she, and the client, expects. That's why we back all of our work with a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee."
Since 2013, Paintzen—acquired by PPG PAINTS™ in 2018—has been revolutionizing the painting process through its simple, all-inclusive platform. As trade members, designers have access to color consultations, quick online quotes, and on-demand painting and wallpaper installation services by vetted and fully insured professionals.
“We have established a dedicated team to support our trade partners to ensure they receive the highest quality of service,” said Meghan Stewart, senior director of residential sales at Paintzen. “The goal is to save designers time: No longer do they have to research vendors or worry about managing the painting process. Paintzen continuously vets our crews for quality and professionalism. Our trade partners can rest easy and focus on what they love—designing and working with their clients.”
Designers also have access to incredibly rich palettes, since Paintzen offers more than 2,000 PPG paint colors with options to color match any item. And the platform ensures all paint and supplies arrive at the project site on schedule, creating a hassle-free experience from ideation to completion. "When juggling hundreds of tasks at one time, Paintzen makes the paint process a breeze to set you up for a an incredibly successful installation," says Alicia Hassen, founder and principal at Brooklinteriors LLC.
Paintzen also proves invaluable under a tight deadline. The platform's extensive community of contractors enables crews to dispatch in as little as 72 hours. Services also can be scheduled in advance, making it an ideal solution for long-term projects or last-minute fixes.
As an added benefit, trade members can take advantage of services beyond those for standard projects since Paintzen's roster of contractors are skilled and ready to tackle every type of paint and wallpaper installation imaginable. Designers can trust Paintzen with their high-end needs, such as faux finishing, textured painting, and decorative wall art, as well as custom projects like painting and staining cabinetry or bringing wall murals to life.
