Examples of decorating work



A smooth finish and crisp lines are the order of the day. Preparation and attention to detail ensure quality paintwork. Explore the fine array of paints on offer: from flat matt finishes for that vintage look to the practicality of tough wipeable paints for busy family homes. Our advice is free but we leave the colour choice to your inspiration.


Discover the beauty and variety of modern wallpaper. Painted embossed papers give a soft textured finish, imperfections fade away and walls feel warmer to touch.  Or make a design statement with bold patterns on a feature wall. Whatever your vision we can smooth all the joins together.


House painting, fences, garages, garden walls and furniture – even gnomes. As long as access is safe and straightforward and the weather dry we’re happy outside. Just ask.


Kitchens and bathrooms: over worktops, behind basins, around baths. Tiles large or small. Mosiac or subway style. The choice is yours. We leave the plumbing and fixtures to you so we can provide a straightforward, affordable tiling-only service for smaller areas.
