We have experience of painting private homes, from a single small room through to complete 4 bed houses, from a simple freshen up for a buy to let property to working for local builders on new build properties where we are starting from scratch.
For larger projects or where time is of the essence we have a number of associates who can join us to speed up a project.
Below are a few recent examples of work that we have carried out locally:-
Hall Stairs & Landing, Melksham
This was a modern house probably around 15 years old, that hadn’t been painted since new, the customer wanted to get away from Magnolia so after we supplied colour cards and eventually Test pots they chose Dulux Soft Apple for the walls, with white ceilings and Dulux Satinwood in white for the 13 doors. We also varnished the banisters just to freshen them up.
Large Lounge/Diner and Bedroom wall
This job involved painting a customer’s lounge/dining room, walls, ceilings and covering up dark feature ceiling joists.
The customer kindly went on holiday whilst we carried this work out, which allowed us to move a large amount of furniture and display cabinets full of china/glass out of the room into their conservatory, this made the job a lot easier without them trying to live in the property at the same time.
The ceilings were painted in Whitemoor, with the bulk of the walls in Stone Cross and one feature wall in Crabtree Green.
We also painted one of the walls in a bedroom which the customer had re-plastered with white plaster paint and a blue emulsion the customer supplied to match existing.
3 Bed Detached Buy to Let property
Although vacant at the time this house was fully furnished, the job involved painting the entire property throughout, with White Matt ceilings, Dulux White Cotton walls, with all internal doors in Dulux Satinwood white, we also stained the garden fence and outside gates in Ronseal Fencing Stain in Dark Oak just to finish it off.
Lounge in Sherwood Avenue, Melksham
The customer wanted their Lounge and Bedroom walls repainted with the only woodwork to be painted being the door frames and doors, the ceilings were also left. We don’t have a before and after picture of this, but the lounge as you can see looked clean and fresh at the end
5 rooms in a house on St Thomas Road, Trowbridge
This a large 4 bedroom house on St Thomas Road, Trowbridge, the customer wanted 5 rooms decorated, the lounge which had a dado rail removed but left a ring round the room, which we removed. The main bedroom which was to have a feature wall wallpapered and 2 other bedrooms and the utility room painted
One Bedroom Retirement Flat in Homeminster, Warminster
This was a flat a customer had just bought and required complete redecoration including the Kitchenette, Hallway, Bathroom, Bedroom and Lounge, the customer had a new kitchen and Bathroom fitted before we arrived, we were asked to leave the doors as they hadn’t decided what they wanted to do with them.
The lounge, kitchen and hallway were painted in Johnston’s Soft Barley Vinyl Matt with the bedroom in Rosebud, the woodwork was finished in Eggshell white and the ceilings Vinyl Matt White.
Pair of Garage Doors & Frames, in Warminster
This was a pair of garage doors and frames we did for a couple of neighbours in Warminster. The bungalows we guess are early 70’s, the one on the left wasn’t too bad, the right one was peeling badly and had judging by the different colours had at least seven coats of paint, i.e. had never been stripped.
We stripped both doors back to bare metal and applied a metal primer undercoat followed by two coats of Dulux Ruby Starlet High Gloss, both customers were very pleased with the results.
Lounge/Diner in Damask Way, Warminster
This was a Lounge/Diner in a 1970s Bungalow in Warminster, the customer who is a heavy smoker wanted the lounge freshened up. We stripped the wallpaper, after cleaning the ceiling we applied several coats of stain block to the ceiling and repainted. The walls were papered with an anaglypta Bark design which will make it easy to repaint in the future. The walls were then repainted with Albany Theale which is a light grey, which looked clean and fresh.
Unusually the customer left it up to us to choose the paper and paint colour, but hopefully was pleased with the end result
Kitchen/Utility room in Keevil
This was a very straight forward job, the customer just wanted the Kitchen and Utility rooms walls and ceiling repainting in the existing colour Dulux Jasmine White
New Build 4 bed detached, Craybourne Rd, Melksham
This was a new house built by a developer in the garden of an existing property in Melksham, the property consists of 4 bedrooms over 3 floors, 3 bathrooms and a downstairs cloakroom. We were asked to paint the entire property, in mostly white vinyl matt, and the wood work in Dulux Satinwood. The two main rooms the Lounge and Kitchen/Diner being painted in Crown Blank Canvas which looked very smart
Bathroom in 1 Bedroom Home in Phillips Close, Devizes
This was a fairly small bathroom job, the customer wanted the bathroom painted white, and had attempted to remove the wallpaper himself, unfortunately in doing so he had pulled the paint underneath off as well back to bare plasterboard. We removed all the wallpaper and feathered edge filled the joint between the bare plasterboard and the painted surface. Because the paint underneath was such a strong colour 4 coats of white vinyl matt were required
Kitchen wallpaper job in Dilton Marsh
The customer wanted their kitchen wallpapered, and the ceiling and woodwork painted. The customer had attempted to remove the wallpaper themselves and given up
Outside Painting of old cottage in Westbury Leigh
The customer wanted their outside windows, window reveals, doors and veranda repainted we also replaced a section of wood which was completely rotten
Complete Kitchen/Utility Room including units painted in Great Hinton
This was a nice project for a customer in the village of Great Hinton, they wanted to update their kitchen which was about 20 years old, without changing the units. They had the worktops replaced and new down lighters installed, we then painted the kitchen units, and the entire room including the utility and downstairs cloakroom to match.
2 Bedroom Bunglow on Holbrook Lane, Trowbridge
This customer originally asked us to wallpaper her two bedrooms in a neutral colour, after having a conversation with us, we suggested we reattach the existing wallpaper and paint it which is of course much cheaper. After leaving colour cards with the customer she choose a Dulux Heritage colour, Wiltshire White
Bedroom and Ensuite in Old Park, Devizes
This customer wanted her rather large bedroom and ensuite freshened up in white, after getting bored with the green feature wall
