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.
