Painting and Decorating in Dalston, East London

Our latest painting and decorating project has been in Dalston, East London
and the client wanted a couple of rooms and the entrance hallway freshening up. We were originally booked for just the two rooms, but the client was impressed by our speed and the quality of work so asked us to complete the hallways too.

Painting and Decorating in Dalston, East London

This was a relatively straightforward painting and decorating project in a London flat which was built in the 1930s, luckily the walls were in good condition so we did not need to do lots of prep work. The condition of the walls in these older flats can be quite variable, however the time invested in preparing the surface before painting does really pay off.

After painting and decorating, this London flat feels much more spacious thanks to the white walls. Space is at a premium in Dalston, so it makes sense to do what you can to maximise what you have available. Give us a call today to see how we can help you make the most of your place, we live in London so know how important a calm sanctuary is in this city and we pride ourselves on carrying out work with minimal disruption to our clients’ busy lives.

Western Gateway, Docklands, East London

This painting and decorating project took place in Western Gateway, Docklands, East London and was in a new build development in Albert Dock. One set of tenants had just moved out, so the owner wanted to revitalise the space before the new tenants moved in. As the client just wanted plain white on the walls only, this is a good example of what can be covered by our £120 per room offer.

The flat was a new build development and open plan, with plenty of light and space. The client wanted a simple white on the walls to maximise this and compliment the clean minimalism of the flat. When you are painting and decorating a place, it’s important not to fight against the existing character of the space.

As this flat was at the prime end of the rental market, the client was wise to call in a professional painter and decorator. London’s prime rental market is very different in character to the everyday rental market, there is much more competition for landlords. We treat every job we do with the same high standards, so had no problem meet the client’s high specifications.

Enfield, North London

We’ve just finished painting and decorating a double lounge in Enfield, North London in white and magnolia Dulux Trade paint.

Painting and decorating in Enfield, North London

As the client had a young family, the lounge was a very high traffic area and had a lot of scuffs and scratches. The room had a dual purpose, both a playroom for the kids and a space for the parents to relax at the end of the day and so needed painting and decorating to make it a pleasant place to be.

The client wanted the room completely freshening up, so we repainted the walls ceiling and woodwork including two doors. Having two young children meant that the client was desperate to minimise the disruption that painting and decorating the living room could cause to their daily routine, so we agreed to complete all of the work within school hours. Luckily the walls were in good condition so we could get straight on with the task of painting them, and being experienced and professional painters and decorators means that we are able to complete quickly without sacrificing quality.

Painting and decorating in Tower Hamlets, East London

This week we have been painting and decorating in Tower Hamlets, East London. The client had just moved into a new build block of flats in Violet Road, Bow and had found that the builders had not left a great finish on the walls before releasing the property to the clients.

Painting and Decorating in Tower Hamlets, East London

The builders had obviously not employed professional painters and decorators – there were streaks and runs all down the walls, the job had obviously been done in a real hurry by unskilled people. The clients really wanted this fixing before they had even unpacked, and so called us.

The client wanted the walls painted in quite a strong mid grey, so we suggested highlighting the window surrounds in white to reflect more light through. The Dulux Trade paints we used are of a good enough quality to cover the poor finish which, along with the usual high standard care and attention we provide to any painting and decorating project we undertake, left the flat looking much better.

There is a shortage of skilled painters and decorators in London, and we are being called out to fix more and more jobs like this. Please take a look at our photos below, we think the quality of our work speaks for itself.

Office Painting and Decorating in Old Street, East London

This project was a change from our usual domestic work, and saw us painting and decorating an office in East London. The clients were the current tenants who were relocating and needed to refresh the walls before handing the office back over to the landlord.

Office Painting and Decorating in Old Street, East London

We agreed to repaint the walls in plain white, the only place which needed special attention was an area underneath the window which was showing damage from condensation. A coat of stain block basecoat was all that was needed to deal with this, it forms a seal which stops any discolouration transferring through to the white emulsion on top.

Offices needed the minimum of disruption and mess when being painted and decorated, especially in busy London-based tech start-ups like this project. We always work cleanly and efficiently, and we can work around block in your schedule – we are well aware you don’t want us to be rolling the walls in the middle of a vital meeting.

Even in this digital age, clients and investors form first impressions on walking into your workspace – a small investment in painting and decorating your startup’s office can go a long way. Our prices are extremely competitive and we are happy to work on projects in and around Old Street and the rest of East London, please get in touch for more information.

Painting and Decorating in Hoxton, East London.

We wanted to highlight woodwork in today’s post, and here are some photos of a room we painted and decorated in Hoxton, East London.

Getting a nice finish on woodwork is one of the trickier jobs when painting and decorating, the oil based paints are less user friendly and especially in period properties there are often lots of tricky nooks and crannies to work around. The extra effort and attention to detail does pay dividends, well finished wood keeps a room looking fresher for far longer. This bedroom had more woodwork than usual, with two large built-in cupboard doors, along with the standard entry door and skirting boards – the total cost for the woodwork was £130.

The rest of the room was straightforward, the walls has already been prepared with cracks and holes filled. We just needed to sand the walls sown and apply two even coats of white ready for the clients to move straight in which was covered in the £120 per room offer. Moving home can get expensive in London and painting and decorating often gets missed out in the budget, we’re very competitive on price and won’t mess you around with hidden extras.

We’ve been Painting and Decorating in Angel, North London

This week saw us painting and decorating in Angel, North London, giving a 2-bed flat is own distinctive look. The new owners wanted something modern but still liveable and so decided to paint soft grey feature walls in the master bedroom, living room and hallway.

Painting and Decorating in Angel, North London

With block colour feature walls, any small lump or bump really stands out so the walls need to be prepared to a very high standard. In this job we didn’t have to contend with any major defects, just a couple of small touch ups here and there. If you would like feature walls but you’re in an old house or the walls are unevenly finished, our advice as professional painter/decorators would be to hang patterned wallpaper instead of painting in block colours – the pattern distracts the eye from any small defects in the surface of the wall.

Having said that, if you have your heart set on coloured feature walls then we are always willing to put in the extra prep work to get the walls really smooth

We also really like the soft grey in the hallway, it is light enough keep space feeling open but it is just dark enough to hide the inevitable wear and tear in this high-traffic area. After managing to squeeze in the time to paint and decorate a flat in busy, London-based lives, it’s good to know that the space will remain fresh for that little bit longer.

Painting and Decorating in Shoreditch, East London

This project saw us painting and decorating in Shoreditch, East London, giving an entire flat a fresh look ready for renting out.

Our client was very keen to get the job done as soon as possible without skimping on quality, so we agreed to complete 4 rooms, plus hallways, in two days – no easy task! Helpfully, the walls had been freshly resurfaced, which meant we could get straight on with painting the walls to a standard of which any professional painter/decorator would be proud.

In the photos you can see the entire flat fresh and ready to be furnished. We covered both of the 2 bedrooms, hallways, open plan lounge/kitchen, bathroom and en suite. The flat is now light and airy, with a cohesive, neutral look throughout.

In a busy rental market like London, painting and decorating a flat before viewings can really help a place stand out to potential tenants. Small details matter when looking for a home, and fresh walls suggest that the property is well looked after. We’d certainly be happy to live here!

Including the materials, this project cost £600 – taking full advantage of the £120 per room offer. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss your project with us.

We’ve been decorating a flat in Bethnal Green, East London E2

We have been decorating a flat in Bethnal Green, East London.

Decorating in Bethnal Green

All the walls in this property needed a complete filler skim over and sand down. After completing the prep work, we painted the whole flat in Farrow And Ball colours. Some of these were mixed into Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt to improve durability and keep costs down. The Dulux paint was used in areas with a lot of wear (hall and lounge). The bedrooms were painted in actual Farrow and Ball paint.

All woodwork had to be sanded back, primed and painted with solvent based paint. Some areas had to filled and re-shaped with two-pack wood filler before they could be painted.

All together it took about a week to decorate this 2 bedroom flat in Bethnal Green, East London.

Painting and Decorating in Kilburn

This painting and decorating job in Kilburn, London NW6 had quite a few surprises in store for us, when a simple paint job turned into a couple of weeks knee deep in dust.

Painting and Decorating in Kennington by Immaculate Decorators London

The end result looked like this. There are more images of this project painting and decorating in Kilburn / North West London in the slide show below.

Painting and Decorating in Kennington by Immaculate Decorators London

Painting and decorating in Kilburn.

The original idea for this 2 bedroom house was to repaint the walls, the ceilings and all of the woodwork. We expected some stripping and repair of the wall paper in the lounge, but, as it turned out, things wouldn’t be quite as straight forward. When we started stripping we uncovered no less than 6 layers of old wall paper. Most of these layers had been painted with waterproof paints, which made soaking them off impossible. Even the steamer had no chance.

So before any painting and decorating work could get started at this place in Kilburn, London NW6, we had to painstakingly remove the paper by hand. This meant in places we scraped our way forward inch by inch.

To make matter worse, the walls underneath all this paper were in a much worse condition than we expected. Initially we had planned to put on a light skim and then sand, but this had to be done twice before we could paint.

Luckily the other rooms were solid and didn’t offer much of a challenge.

If you have a painting in decorating project in Kilburn / North West London or any other London area than get in touch for a quote. We also serve most London areas north of the river inside the M25, as well as areas in Hertfordshire and Essex along the rivers Lea and Stort.

Painting and Decorating in Paddington

We have been painting and decorating a flat in Paddington in Westminster – Central London. This flat is located inside one of the historic blocks of flats in Sussex Gardens near Paddington station, most of which are now home to hotels.

Painting and Decorating in Paddington - German Painter Decorator London

German Painter Decorator in Paddington – Central London. Painting and decorating in North, East and West London from £120 per room inclusive Dulux paints

This job was at a 3 bedroom flat in Sussex Gardens in Paddington. Though the flat was in a reasonable condition this was not a small project. The property had lots of original features such as the original windows with all the shutters intact, cornices and ceiling roses, as well as high skirting boards, etc.

 

The woodwork was by far the biggest part of this project, painting and decorating in Paddington. Not only is it very time consuming to sand and prepare such a large amount of wood, it is also not possible to paint all of it in one go. Each side of the shutters has to be done separately and in some cases they had to be removed and painted laying down. All this adds to the overall amount of days spend on site.

The walls and ceilings were somewhat more straight forward to paint than the woodwork. These had to be painted in white only. Painting walls and ceilings both in white makes the job easier and faster to complete. This is because we can save time with cutting edges and waiting for paint to dry to switch between colours.

This flat was to be made ready for tenants to move in and had to be decorated at a budget. This is another reason why we choose to paint everything in white. We also kept the prep work to a minimum to keep the costs down. This 3 bedroom flat in Paddington was completed by us in under 5 days.

Painting and Decorating in Swiss Cottage

This is a painting and decorating job we recently completed in Swiss Cottage, North West London. The rooms to be painted had been re-plastered and the woodwork was new. Despite the shoddy work of the builders before us we managed to prepare and paint everything to a high standard. And with 12 hour shifts and a full 7 days on site we also managed to complete it within the 1 week deadline.

Painting and Decorating in Swiss Cottage, North West London

German Painter Decorator in Swiss Cottage, North West London. Painting and Decorating from £120 per room inclusive Dulux paint

This project, painting and decorating in Swiss Cottage, was a tricky one. We had anticipated that there would be quite a bit of work needed. We had therefore allowed plenty of time to complete the work. What we found when we arrived at this job in London NW3 came as a bit of a surprise to us.

All of the rooms and staircases to be decorated had been refitted. There were freshly plastered walls and new woodwork, as well as new build-in wardrobes. We did expect this and had included this in the quote. What we didn’t anticipate was the shoddy workmanship of the plasterers and carpenters.

This had obviously been done at a budget and none of the woodwork did fit. There where gaps everywhere, nothing was straight and the drawers inside the wardrobe had been fitted in a way which made it impossible to remove and paint them. The plasterwork had cracks and gaps around the edges and had been smudged onto the wood work. The wood on the new staircase had been damaged when it was hammered into place because it didn’t fit, etc., etc..

We had planned to spend a total of four 8 hour shifts on this painting and decorating project in North West London. In order to complete it on time, we did end up working seven 12 hour shifts in a row. Despite all this we still managed to bring it in on budget and within our 1 week deadline. However there where some parts which no amount of prep work could bring up to a decent standard. This goes to show that it is not wise to just hire the cheapest guys without checking what their finished work looks like.

Painting and Decorating in Walthamstow, East London

Last week we completed a project painting and decorating in Walthamstow, East London. A hallway and staircase over two floors and a new attic room needed to be painted from scratch in a Victorian domestic property .

Painting and Decorating in Walthamstow, East London

German Painter and Decorator in Walthamstow, East London. Painting and Decorating from £120 per room inclusive Dulux Paint

This was a painting an decorating job in Walthamstow, East London for a German client of ours. An entrance with staircase to the first floor, a landing and a new loft room with the stairs leading to it needed to be painted. Unfortunately we found ourselves once again having to deal with the sub-standard craftsmanship of the builders before us. The new staircase didn’t fit and none of the wood lined up correctly. The plaster work was rough around the edges and needed quite a bit more filling as would normally be the case. This made this painting and decorating project in Greenwich more complicated than expected.

The walls on the ground floor and lower staircase were in a terrible condition too. We’ve had to skim these with Polycell and sand them smooth before applying 2 coats of Dulux vinyl paint.
Much of the old woodwork was in a terrible state as well. It seemed to us that for the last 2 or three decades the woodwork had just been covered with more and more paint without proper prep work.

This really wasn’t your average painting and decorating job. There were a lot of things we didn’t expect and a lot of extra work. Nonetheless we managed to bring it in on budget and more or less on time.

Painting and Decorating in Shepherd’s Bush

This is a 4 bed flat in Shepherd’s Bush in West London which we painted recently. The place was really run down and needed to be made ready for new tenants in just 4 days and to a budget.

Painting and Decorating in Shepherd’s Bush.

When we first arrived at this flat for a quote, we were shocked. This was ones of dirtiest, greasiest and smelliest places we had seen in a long time. Every now and then a property looks like this, but we wouldn’t expect it in a clean west London area like shepherd’s bush.

This is really not the best, cleanest or most detailed decorating job to advertise with. We decided to write a post anyway because it shows how even a simple paint job with a very low budget can freshen up and renew a place. The photos were taken before the new carpets went down which will really enhance the paintwork and cleaned the place up.

We know there are many landlords in Shepherd’s Bush and other London areas which need painting and decorating jobs of this sort done. Often tenants don’t take care of the place and it end up looking like this. We are experienced in brightening up places for the next tenants. We can advise you on the best way to achieve good results at a low cost.

Painting and Decorating in Hackney, East London

It’s been a while since our last post so here are the latest news for you. We have been very busy over the last few weeks with several painting and decorating projects in East London coming to a finish soon.

Painter Decorator Hackney, East London

German Painter Decorator in Hackney, East London E8. Painting and Decorating form £120 per room including Dulux paint

One of the recent painting and decorating jobs is this little flat in Hackney, East London. This place had actually been recently decorated prior to it being sold to the current owner. However, the quality of the work was so poor that we were called out to see if any improvements could be made.

We found the usual cracks and gaps along with paint drips and edges that weren’t cut in straight. The woodwork had only been given one coat, and not a good one either. All in all it was a rushed an bodged job which just looked awful.

We gave the wood a rub down and filled in the holes in the walls. After that this painting and decorating project in Hackney, East London was pretty much straight forward. We applied two solid coats of quality Dulux paint and achieved a good result.

This painting and decorating job in Hackney, East London E8 had been split into two stages for budged reasons and we started in the bedrooms with the open plan living room and the hall to be completed later this year. We are usually happy with this as long as we can paint at least two rooms at the time. This saves money too as we can get on with work in the second room while we wait for materials to dry in the first one

Painting and Decorating in Highgate, North London.

This project, painting and decorating in Highgate, North London, has been completed on Wednesday as planned. All of the rooms have been painted in white on walls and ceiling and some minor repair work has also been done.

painting and decorating in Highgate, North London

German Painter Decorator in Highgate, North London. Painting and Decorating from £120 per room inclusive Dulux paints

Painting and decorating in Highgate, North London. This flat was in a relatively good condition when we started. It hadn’t been painted in a view years and needed refreshing. The colours used previously were quiet dark as well and didn’t reflect much light into the rooms.

Though the flat was quite large, this painting and decorating job in Highgate N8, didn’t take very long to complete. All we needed to do is give the woodwork a good rub down and fill some cracks and wall plugs here and there. After that all that was left to do was to paint all the walls and the woodwork.

We decided to just use plain white paint for walls and woodwork. The windows in this place were quite small and one of the rooms was in the basement. This meant that there wasn’t much natural light coming. Painting everything in white meant that the walls and wood would reflect all the light into the room. This made the place appear bright and airy.

We are always looking for more work painting and decorating in Highgate, North London or elsewhere in London. To get in touch you can email us or use the Reply Form below. This can also be used for general comments and questions.

Painting and Decorating in Poplar

Another one of our projects, painting and decorating in Poplar – East London, has been completed. This was a simple freshen up job for our client as he had tenants waiting to move in to the property.

Painting and decorating in Poplar

German Painter and Decorator in Poplar / East London. Painting and decorating form £120 per room inclusive Dulux paint

Painting and decorating in Poplar – East London. This was a simple freshen up job. The flat needed to be decorated before being rented out. Since this was to be a basic student accommodation, we stuck to plain white for walls and woodwork.

In many cases it isn’t wise to invest to much when painting and decorating these kind of properties in Poplar or East London as occupants rarely take good care of the place. This means there will be little return on investments in quality. It is usually best to just paint in white or magnolia. These paints are cheap and easily freshened up with just one coat when tenants move out.

When we arrived at this flat in poplar for painting and decorating work, we found it in a bad state of repair. There were many holes and cracks in the walls and the woodwork was scratched and damaged. The flat had not seen a London painter decorator in many years. The colour used previously were dark and didn’t let much light in. Now they were also yellowed and greyed from the year of neglect.

We filled all the crack and holes and applied two coats of strong paint. This should keep the place in good order for at least the next 5 years.

Painting and Decorating in Leyton - London

German Painter Decorator in Leyton – London. Painting and decorating from £120 per room inclusive Dulux paint

Painting and decorating in Leyton – London. This was a very nice nad relatively easy job for us. All the work from previous trades had been carried out to a high quality standard. The clients had researched the other trades well and though they didn’t come cheap, the results were very good.

The house had been re-plastered with new cornicing and ceiling roses. The woodwork had been completely replaced except for the banister. Since there was hardly any filling or repairs to do, this painting and decorating job in Leyton – London didn’t take too long to complete.

After priming the walls and woodwork as well as making good in a few places, we painted everything in the colours the client chose. As usual all white paints and other materials where included in the fixed price we gave. We also supplied the colours at cost with no surcharge for sourcing them.

We edges in this place were especially tricky at this painting and decorating project in Leyton – London. This is because of the high contrast in the colour. There were also quite a few of them and some in tricky place like the ceilings. We really enjoyed this little challenge. As you can see in the close-up photos all the edges.

We are always ready to take on new projects painting and decorating in Leyton or other parts of London. If you are in need of a German painter decorator in London then please call, email, or use the Reply From below to get in touch. The for can also be used for general questions and comments
