    decoratingIt may be the case that more than one area of your property needs decorating, or perhaps the whole house sprucing up, if you’ve just moved in or have just purchased a property you intend to let out on the rental market. Freshly painted and decorated rooms can ensure a property is in a great sellable condition, and often increases the chances of a swift sale, and at times, added value. A property that boasts ‘freshly decorated’ is the same one that attracts lots of potential buyers or renters.

    The type of room looking to be redecorated usually always influences what type of environment you wish to create. Whether it’s a bathroom, kitchen, living room or bedroom, colours are very important when choosing which atmosphere you want the space to give off.

    • Relaxing – aim for cool colours such as pastels, pale blues, creams and white. Suited to kitchens, bathrooms and conservatories.
    • Fun – aim for more vibrant colours, such as purple, pink, blue, green, orange and yellow. Suited to children’s’ play areas/ bedrooms.
    • Rustic – aim for more natural/warm colours such as, browns, pale green, cream and burgundy.

    Getting the right type of paint is also crucial when re-painting/decorating a room. Whether you wish to have wooden furniture, floorboards, walls or ceilings painted, we can advise you on which types of paints to use to guarantee a long lasting, professional finish. The market now offers a range of different paints we use to a high standard, giving you a crisp and fresh finish.
