Industry Spotlight: Painters & Decorators

We’re coming up to that time of year where we all want to refresh our homes. And what better way to do it than a fresh coat of paint, or a new look in your home?

If you want to hire a professional to undertake painting in your home, it’ll save you a lot of time and hassle when you enlist experts.

Even though painting and decorating take time, professional painters and decorators are used to working in tight deadlines to complete the job and thoroughly clean so you don’t have to.

What’s the difference between a painter and decorator?

A painter is classed as a tradesman who applies fluid coating to solid surfaces – be it paint, varnish or stain coatings.

A decorator is someone who deals in the artistic process of choosing different coatings, colours, textures and patterns to apply to surfaces for design purposes.

Painters and decorators know which details to keep in mind when it comes to the task of painting and decorating. They understand how to prepare walls for painting, how to choose colours and finishes, and how to test them. They know where to go to get the best products for each need, so even if you want to buy paint and materials yourself, they can advise you.

The job gets done

If you’ve ever done your own painting and decorating, you’re probably familiar with the feeling of joy gradually fading into frustration at the prospect of having so much to do.

Hiring a professional painter and decorator is a good alternative to doing things on your own and knowing the results will be satisfying if you have the urge to give up mid-project, or avoid the rush to avoid rushed results.
