Project: Interior decoration. Bedroom and living room including wall papering.

Have used this decorator many times over more than ten years, because of high standard of work and reliability. He has decorated outside for us 18 months ago and this was also done well.

Customer in Haywards Heath, 21 January 2013

Project: Decorate lounge and dining room.

The work was carried out professionally and to a high standard. Gary blended the old and new plaster on the walls with a seamless result. This meant I did not have to have lining paper put on the walls. The paint work is excellent and the room looks great.

Project: Painting exterior of house

Gary and Karen did an amazing job. The preparation and repairs to the masonry and woodwork were very thorough. The final finish is excellent. I would recommend Decorative Interiors and Exteriors and will use them again.

Customer in Brighton, 30 April 2012


Project: Decorate Hall and Bathroom

We were very pleased with the painting that Gary and Karen did for us, it was a great job. It was no trouble having them in the house even through we have a 3 month old baby, there was minimum disruption and they were very tidy. Gary is very easy to deal with and very helpful. We asked him to do a few extra bits while he was here and he was very honest about the things he didn’t think needed doing. We would definitely use them again. Thank you!
