23-year-old painting contractor expands to fill gaps in home renovation

Denver, CO, April 27, 2022 — (PR.com) — After 23 years in business, the Denver paint company is growing and changing its name. Walls by Design Inc. has served metro Denver providing interior painting services to homeowners and designers for 23 years. Nick May, owner of Walls by Design, has slowly expanded his service offering in recent years to include cabinet painting, tile installation and carpentry. “We focus on small projects for owners. They need a backsplash, or a crown added to their cabinetry, or want a feature wall. These are the projects that big contractors don’t want to take on and therefore individuals don’t know where to go. Come in, Walls by Design,” May reports. Mr. May went on to say, “We are constantly looking for services that complement our painting and the things our owners request. Recently we decided to expand into wallpaper installation to fill a much needed gap.

Wallpapering had gone into a huge decline in the 90s. Due to declining demand, many painting contractors simply no longer offered the service. Historically, painting contractors were thought of as painters and decorators, but with wallpaper hangers aging and few people choosing to train, the trade has all but disappeared. The Wallcovering Installers Association (WIA), formerly known as the National Guild of Professional Paperhangers (NGPP), was founded in 1974 and once had thousands of members, but has fallen to less than 400 members.

Today, designers and homeowners across the country are struggling to find a qualified wallpaper installer due to retiring baby boomers and a lack of skilled workers. To fill this gap, Walls by Design is launching a training center for painting and wallpapering in Denver, and will offer courses at the professional and homeowner level.

To better represent the expanded services, Walls by Design recently changed its name to Walls by Design Painting and Decorating. For more information, please visit their website at wallbydesign.com.
