If your pad badly needs a make-over but like me you have no eye for design and zero skill in the paper hanging department you might want to consider using the services of one of the many great painting and decorating companies in the London area.
In my experience good decorators are worth their weight in gold. After all who wants to spend their weekends trailing round B&Q sampling products, choosing colour palettes, picking out wallpaper and spending hours up a ladder only to find the finished job looks like a dogs breakfast?
My favourite painter and decorator is Mike Tiller of MJ Tiller Decorators in Woodford Green.
A Little Bit About MJ Tiller Decorators
As well as being a thoroughly nice bloke, Mike is a very experienced and professional painter and decorator. He undertakes all types of commercial and domestic work, both interior and exterior, but specialises in listed and period properties so he’s a dab hand with Lyncrusta (that’s putty-filled wallpaper in case you didn’t know) and a real magician when it comes to fiddly jobs like making ornate ceiling roses and cornices look as good as new.
“It’s All In The Preparation That Makes For Better Decoration” is Mike’s motto. He guarantees a long-lasting finish on every job, thanks to the amount of time and care taken to prepare surfaces before repainting or papering and the fact that he only uses high quality paint and materials from top notch brands like Farrow and Ball.
Mike is a stickler for deadlines and will always leave your property looking immaculate when the job is done. It’s this reliability and good old-fashioned customer service that have helped the company build up a faithful following in the 38 years they’ve been in business. (Trust me on this, my extended family have been using Mike’s services for as long as I can remember).
Because he has been in business so long, Mike has a big fact contact book that’s always at your disposal, which means that if something needs doing he can always put you in touch with a man (or woman) who can. Which makes him a very useful person to know even if stunning feature walls are not your thing.
