Our Clients Say

Richard has done a lot of decorating for us over the years, and we wouldn't employ anyone else. His work is always to a very high standard, and he is efficient, pleasant and always professional.

I’m delighted with the work Richard has done in our new home. So far he has decorated our front room, dining room and hallway as well our daughter’s nursery which had some very faffy wallpaper as part of the project! Every room looks stunning and the standard of Richard’s work is exceptional. He’s coming back to paint our kitchen, including hand painting the kitchen units in the New Year and I will continue to use Richard for any other work we may want doing in the future. Everyone who has visited has commented on how great the decor looks and asked for Richard’s contact details. I would recommend unreservedly. Thank you Richard for turning our new house into a lovely home!

I found Richard to be an excellent decorator. He really took the time to work out what we wanted. He kept the place tidy at all times and has done a fantastic job. I would heartily recommend him.

Richard has done work for me for over 20 years, I have quite a few properties that I rent out and when they come up for re decoration Richard is always the one I contact to keep them in top shape . Time is money and who can afford to keep a house empty and lose rent. Richard is always there when he says he will be and is always fast and clean. I also have used him extensivly on my own home especially when it comes to adding those little bits of class like painted furniture or hanging that special wall paper. Highly recommended.
