How to Prepare for Decorators

We admit, we might be a little bit biased, but we really do believe that bringing in a painting and decorating team is always a good idea when redecorating. The excitement of a professional decorated home is truly hard to beat!

However, we know it can be a bit stressful. It might worth considering how you might best prepare for their visit in order to get the most out of it.

Many people assume a professional ought to do everything for them, and that isn’t necessarily wrong. However, there are some common oversights, which can slow down the work or even compromise the final product! By being aware of these, you can avoid them and enjoy all the benefits of hiring in a professional.

First thing’s first: cleaning! We know this is nothing shocking or innovative but simply making sure the spaces you’re having work performed in are clean and clear will safe so much time for the professional and maybe even save you money. This includes clearing furniture. Now, if this isn’t possible, don’t worry! We can always work around things or move them on your behalf. We’ll move them back afterwards too!

Second order of business: know what you want. This might sound a bit odd but plenty of people don’t put the time aside to properly consider what they want their final product to be.
It can’t be overstated how useful giving yourself some real space to figure out what you want a painter decorator to do for you.

Not doing is a bit like sitting in a salon chair and asking for ‘a hair cut’. Of course a good hairdresser will give you a nice haircut in that situation but even the best hairdresser is unlikely to take risks or doing anything too interesting and it’s the same for decorators.
If you go in with a clear idea of what you want, you are more likely to come away with something really spectacular and something that is really you.
