"Darren has decorated a few of our homes over the years and we have never been disappointed with the quality.
What impresses me the most is his preparation beforehand. Everything is moved out of the way and covered more than adequately even down to the light fittings, mirrors etc. I can relax in the knowledge that every piece of furniture will be back in its rightful place and the finished room will look amazing.
I recommended Darren to a very good friend and neighbour as I trust him and his abilities 100% and she has not been disappointed!"

I came across Darren, whilst looking for a high quality local painter/decorator, on the Internet.
The testimonials were all so complimentary and positive, that I almost employed him without having even met him!! He did, however, come and look at the job (hall, including cloakroom, stairs and landing) and really impressed me with his pleasant yet very professional nature. He quoted me a price for the job, there and then, which was very competitive (and this price was the final price-there were no hidden/added extras that some people always find a way to add on!)A written confirmation of the estimate arrived a few days later.
Darren has to be the neatest and tidiest worker I have ever employed – dust sheets and masking tape literally everywhere, bagging up rubbish as he went along(and taking it away!).He tidies up at the end of each day and even vacuums the whole area-wonderful! He is also totally reliable and trustworthy, so you can happily leave him in the house or with a key to let himself in or to lock up at night.
His actual work (in this case painting and wallpapering) was absolutely faultless. The preparation was amazingly (and I would say unusually!) thorough-I can honestly say there is by no means a lack of sanding before and between coats!!- the amount of sanding that went on was obviously one of the major reasons for the great finish achieved.
Again with the wallpapering, I could not fault the work. The paper, being striped, can cause problems, especially if the wall area has many “fiddly” bits to deal with (which mine certainly does). But no problem....the finish is outstanding!
I am absolutely thrilled with the job Darren has done- workers of his standard are few and far between these days. The next time I need a decorator, I won't need to make lots of phone calls for estimates.....I'll just be contacting Darren!
Having moved to this area several years ago, we were looking for a high quality, competitive painting and decorating service. We were impressed with Darren’s informative website as a first contact point and we initially asked Darren to quote for a sizeable internal decorating project. Having considered a number of quotes, we had no hesitation in appointing Darren as he was professional, attentive and polite. He completed an excellent job on time and with great attention to detail. Since then, Darren has undertaken a large external repainting project and has carried out further internal decorating for us to his usual high standards.
We are happy to share our positive experiences on the testimonials section of Darren’s website and to thank Darren for his excellent all-round service.

We were delighted with the service provided by Darren in decorating our house. His professional and friendly approach impressed us throughout especially his attention to detail which gave us decorative finish that we are proud of. We would have no hesitation in recommending Darren and will be certainly using him again in the future.
We were so pleased with the interior decorating.
A transformation from wallpaper to lined walls with emulsion paint.
We couldn't believe how much extra 'space' we seem to have.
Your advice was 'spot on' and we are so pleased with the result.
"Everybody loved the decorating especially the pink!
They also commented on the standard of work.
Thanks again Darren".
Thanks for the decorating of my home. You managed to keep my house tidy during the decorating, as promised, and this was so important to me.
I shall recommend you to all my friends.
Once again Darren, thank you.
Thank you for a job well done.
