There’s no place like home…Whether working, relaxing or entertaining, people are spending more time at home than ever before. If this rings true for you, then your home should be your sanctuary. The experts at Palmetto Paint and Decorating Center can help you refresh, update and create the perfect “home sweet home.”

Paint, flooring and window treatments are three of the quickest and least expensive ways to update a room, according to designers. From floor to ceiling, small projects to total room makeovers, Palmetto Paint and Decorating Center has got you covered.

The team at the center offers specialized attention that you simply will not find in larger chain stores. Owners Dan Hedrick, Robert Lingle and Perry Arabatzis are always on hand to offer expert service to the friends, neighbors, designers and contractors who have visited their store in Palmetto Bay for more than 41 years. The center, located on South Dixie Highway, also carries an array of superior quality products.

As of April 1st, Palmetto Paint carries the complete line of Benjamin Moore paints exclusively. Whether you think neutral is nice or want to change “blah” to brilliant, paint can make a big splash. Products in the Benjamin Moore line include interior and exterior paints and wood stains, primers and specialized paints with metallic finishes and pearlescent hues. “It really is the best brand of paint products available,” said co-owner Arabatzis.

Do-it-yourselfers will find all the supplies – and inspiration – they need to get them started. Paint technique seminars are held quarterly. The next seminar is Wednesday, May 4, 5:30-7:30 p.m., and will be led by the regional representative from Modern Masters. It will include demonstrations of Modern Masters’ complete product range, including metal effects, texture effects and Venetian plaster. If you’d rather leave your paint job to the experts, the Palmetto Paint team can provide you with the name of a preferred paint contractor.

For high impact, transform a room with new hardwood or laminate flooring from top manufacturers, Armstrong and Mannington. Like the feel of soft carpet underfoot in the bedroom? The center offers carpets by Mohawk, with a style, texture and color choice for every purpose, decorating style and budget.

Dress up your windows and improve the view with Hunter Douglas wood blinds, plantation shutters, Duette® shades, Silhouette ® shades, roman shades, vertical blinds and privacy sheers.

Wallpaper has made a comeback – or maybe it never went out of style. At Palmetto Paint, you’ll find more than 100,000 wallpaper prints and textures from which to choose. In-home measuring and estimates are always free.

While in-store, decorator consultants, Karla Mergenthal and Lynette Pichardo, can help you choose and coordinate all of these products and more, such as custommade valances, draperies, bedspreads and pillows. To help you put it all together at home, designer Debbie Jarrell makes house calls.

“We work with designers and do-ityourselfers, alike,” said Mergenthal. “We have customers who visit us from South America and those who have a winter home here and a summer home in the north. We go the extra mile for all of our clients and because of that, we’ve developed a loyalty.”

Since 1994, local paint and wallpaper contractor Gustavo Inzillo has visited Palmetto Paint at least twice a week for his project supplies. “They carry the best products and provide excellent service,” he said. “The paint specialists are experts at color matching. And, when I work with Karla on a wallpaper job, my clients are all thrilled with the results.”

Palmetto Paint and Decorating Center is located at 14031 South Dixie Highway in Palmetto Bay and the phone number is 305-233-1224. The center is open Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, visit
