Painting and Decorating

Our website has information about our decorating services, including details of our interior and exterior painting and decorating.

Our services cover all aspects of work from preparation to finishing, wallpapering and painting, feature walls and complimentary colours themes, staining, varnishing for both home decorating and commercial properties, we even clean up and vacuum afterwards!

We offer a professional, friendly service, causing you the client the least possible inconvenience while we are working in their home or property.

You can read what our clients say about us on our testimonials page and references are available on request. Our customer service reputation is for quality workmanship, with customer recommendation being a large percentage of where our work comes from. A photographic gallery and portfolio of our work is online for viewing.


From painting the walls in your lounge to wallpapering your featured wall in a romantic bedroom or adding a funky fun feel to a teenagers study, we offer a full range of interior decorating services. These include us visiting your premises for an on site estimate, where we can discuss your requirements and help you source the materials, i.e emulsion, gloss and satinwood paints. If you prefer to source your own paints and wallpaper then our online resources maybe of assistance, our calculator pages, include both wallpaper and paint coverage calculators, plus the property decorating blog has many articles and "How to articles" on decorating and DIY topics.

And once you've had your walls decorated, what better way to decorate your walls than with original paintings from Art in Wax by Hazel Rayfield.


Our exterior painting season runs throughout the summer months and we start estimating in the Spring for the coming season. We still do interior work in this period too, allowing for the weather!

Exterior work can be small or large jobs, we are happy to just paint your front door, an extension maybe or paint / stain the fascia and soffits, masonry and do the full works.


  • I would thoroughly recommend Adrian. He always turned up on time, carried out his work without any mess, produced a professional result and best of all in my book, didn't expect to spend hours chatting over endless cups of tea (although he isn't averse to a cup every now and then) like some tradesmen I've had!

    Mr Bell, Barling Magna

    Adrian has done several decorating jobs for me, interior and exterior. They have all been done to a very high standard. The service he provides I would highly recommend.

    Mrs Duffen, Hawkwell

  • Excellent job at an equally-excellent price! Adrian transformed our bedroom in one day - wallpapering the whole room. The end result was much better than we had originally hoped for and we will not hesitate in using his services again - we'll also be recommending him to friends and family!!

    Mr & Mrs T, Southchurch

    Adrian recently decorated my living room, the result being so good that I have booked him again to come and transform my hall and stairs. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adrian, as the service he gives is totally professional, but more importantly he does a fantastic job.

    Mrs R. Great Wakering

  • I found Adrian after visiting his website. I had lost my longtime decorator and I was looking for someone else. As always with someone new I was apprehensive but I need not have worried. Adrian did a first class job. He was very efficient and very methodical. He has now decorated most of the interior of the house plus my garden furniture. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adrian.

    Mrs N from Thorpe Bay

    Adrian recoated our hardwood windows with Sadolin giving the outside of the house a real lift. He worked efficiently and tidily always turning up when he said he would and completing the job in the time he had estimated. We would certainly recommend him and hope he will do more work for us in the future.

    Mr. and Mrs. H, Southend
