Here is a sample of the jobs we do:

Living room painting

For most people, the sitting room is where you will spend a lot of your downtime. Whether it be entertaining friends and family, watching Netflix or reading a good book. With so many options for decorating your lounge, it can feel overwhelming. We advise our clients to go for something that fits both their tastes and preferences, and lifestyle. If you’ve got young children or pets, staying away from neutral colours is generally a safer bet. On the other hand, if you’re after a country home aesthetic then by all means go for white walls! These pair especially well with painted woods and a luxurious off-white carpet.

Bathroom reworks

There are many different ways to design your bathroom. From a full tiled shower room for the guest room to a cozy, plant-filled bathtub for your master ensuite. If you are completely refurbishing your bathroom, then a good starting point is to look at your current one. Write down what works and what doesn’t. This will help when deciding which elements to bring into the new design and what areas you need adjusted. 

Whichever style you decide to go for, we can discuss in detail the layout, pros and cons. We want to make sure that not only do you have a beautiful bathroom but also one that is comfortable and meets your needs.

Window restoration

Our team carry out the full spectrum of work for restoring windows to a pristine condition. We will always carry out an initial assessment and then discuss with you the work required. Repainting the window frames may be adequate to get them looking good as new! Or perhaps, your sash windows are in need of a bit more tlc and this could involve repairing decorations, reglazing, improving the window insulation or replacing glass.

Kitchen cabinet painting

Perhaps you’re looking to completely renovate your kitchen with a new layout and you’re thinking of new colour scheme with painted cabinets. Or you’re happy with the general layout but simply want a refresh with the latest trending kitchen colours? Painting your kitchen cabinets is a great way to bring a fresh perspective without breaking the bank!

Dark paints are perfect to create a cozy kitchen and work well for busy family kitchens or if you’re a messy cook! On the other end of the spectrum, you could go for whites and neutrals for a timeless kitchen. The added benefit here being that it can make your kitchen and dining area feel brighter and more spacious. Other options our customers have gone for in the past are painting the kitchen island a contrasting colour, distressed paint finish for a vintage look or a bright paint for the inside of their cabinets for a pop of a colour!

Wallpapering

When it comes to wallpaper, there are so many different styles, patterns and places where it can be used. You could wallpaper a whole room, a feature wall or even go for a bold print for the inside of your cabinets.

Most people immediately think of a feature or mural when we mention wallpaper. But instead of a feature wall, why not opt for some complementary wallpaper on your chimney breast. It’s a great way to bring some character without overdoing the wallpaper effect. If you’re lucky enough to have some gorgeous panelling in your home, why not accentuate it further by wallpapering the recesses within? Or you could match the wallpaper to your upholstery for an ultimate country cottage vibe. Colefax and Fowler have some fabulous fabrics and wallpaper options.

Some of our clients have successfully incorporated bold prints in their bathrooms (just make sure it is water-resistant!) and cloakrooms. A bold pattern or colour works well here but the key being it’s in small doses. Instead of going for the usual white paint for your ceilings, you could experiment with a print instead. It’s a great way to bring some patterns and colours to a part of the house which is often overlooked. Another neglected area is the hallway. A beautiful, bright wallpaper can bring light to this space and provide a warm welcome when entering your home.

If that’s still a bit too much wallpaper for your liking then you might like the next idea. Using wallpaper for the inside of your bookshelves, or drawers can bring in a lovely surprise element and also allow you to be playful and go for something that may be in stark contrast to the rest of your room or house.

Tiling

When it comes to tiles, there are a myriad of styles, colours and designs to choose from! Tiles can be an expensive option, especially when comparing to simply painting the wall, but there is good reason for this! It is a popular option for it’s functionality and durability.

They are low-maintenance and so are a great options for high traffic areas and if you have young children or pets. A quick wipe is usually enough to get rid of any unwanted marks.

Tiles are also mould and mildew resistant which is very handy when it comes to spaces such as bathrooms and kitchens. In particular for older homes that are not well-insulated and where these issues arise more often.

When it comes to deciding whether to go for a half-tiled or fully-tiled bathroom, there are several things to consider. Of course, choosing to tile only the wet areas of your bathroom is likely to mean lower costs, but this is not the only reason people go for this option. By mixing tiles, paint and wallpaper you can really bring your own unique flair to your bathroom. And for large bathrooms, tiling all the surfaces may be just a bit too much! On the other hand, a small bathroom may benefit from tiling all over as this helps create a visually bigger space.

For a bit of luxury in your bathroom, tiles are the perfect combination with underfloor heating. Your feet will thank you for it!

Floor painting

Painting your floors can be a divisive subject depending on who you speak to! This is why we recommend our customers to think carefully about the space and how likely they are to change their mind later down the line!

So let’s talk through some of the pros and cons of painted floors. The two key advantages are that it is affordable and gives you a lot of creative freedom. On the flip side, painting your wooden floors won’t be as durable as staining it. Whereas stain soaks into the wood, paint will just be a surface layer so will age a lot faster. Another potential downside is that you might change your mind at some point and to restore the original wood will involve a fair bit of work. We also suggest thinking about the impact on your property’s valuation if you are looking to sell it further down the line.

Plastering

Plastering is an essential step as it lays the foundation for a great finish and beautiful room. The type of wall that needs to be plastered is important as this will determine which plaster we use.

During our consultation with our customers we also like to mention some other things to think about before we start plastering their walls. There have been one too many occasions where they’ve thought about something once the walls have been plastered and the job would have been much quicker and cheaper if we had planned for it from the start!

So before you start plastering consider whether you want to make changes to any of the electrical wiring. Some customers have changed the type of lighting. Perhaps more plug sockets would be handy? Or you want to change the position of some of them to fit in with your planned layout.

Now is also a good time to decide if you want to replace any skirting boards, door frames or window sills. It’s amazing how simply upgrading some of these features can make the room look much fresher! With the rising energy bills over the years, insulation is something that often crop ups. Consider whether now is a good time to invest in insulation any walls, particularly poorly insulated exterior walls which cause homes to lose a lot of heat!

And last but not least, we’ve briefly touched on layout, but it’s always good to think about whether you’re happy to keep the same layout. Maybe you’ve always longed for a bigger space and now could be a great time to knock that wall down!

A sample of the work we can do:

Interior decorating

Decorating the interior of your home or office is what truly transforms it and adds character. We love helping our clients through the process, whether they have come with a fully fleshed out design or have sourced some inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram! We will work with you to understand the aesthetic and function of the room we are decorating before getting started. From choosing the right colours for your walls to the finishing touches.

Remember that colours will look different depending on the lighting. This is why we recommend getting paint pot samples and trying them out before starting any interior painting. A good way to test is to do a test patch on the lightest and darkest wall. This will really help you to bring to life how the colour will look in your chosen room! You can do the same with wallpaper – tape some up on your wall and see what you think.

Getting measurements right will save you a lot of time and money! So as the saying goes – measure twice and cut once! You should apply this whether you’re buying furniture, new curtains or blinds and any fittings and fixtures.

Once you’ve got the foundations of your room done – the walls, main pieces of furniture you can focus on the fun parts! Adding rugs, cushions, lamps and plants can help bring a room together. One of our customers has even drawn inspiration from the natural beauty of places like Hounslow Heath!

Exterior decorating

There are a myriad of ways to decorate the exterior of your property. You could simply to choose to paint the walls, have a bespoke door put in, paint your fence, or stain your wooden decking.

Here are a few things to consider when you’re planning to make some alterations to the exterior of your home or business. The first one is timing and weather. We get very busy in the Summer months as most people start thinking about painting their home in the dryer months. However, the Spring and Autumn months are also a good time to embark on such a project. Of course, it’s not dry every day but the advantage is that we don’t have to worry about too much direct sunlight affecting the quality of the paintwork.

Good quality paint is a must! The amount of times we have had clients insist on using a cheaper alternative and then it not lasting as long as they would have liked. You have to look at it as an investment for years to come so we always advise on choosing the best quality for the job. This not only ensures a great finish but your property will stay in pristine condition for much longer.

Also, decide early on if you need scaffolders and do spend some time finding a good company this is also insured! It can make a complex project much quicker and smoother without worrying about ladders!

Another thing to bear in mind is to check if your property is within a listed area. If so, you will likely need to check with your local council if you’re planning to make any changes to the outside of your property. We always advise our clients to apply well in advance. This is to make sure you’ve got the relevant permissions and so we can mitigate any delays.

Our painting and decorating team always prep before starting any work. We make sure any items are moved out of the way for safety and to make sure they do no get damaged. We’ll also tape or cover up any areas we are not working on.

Finally, we always ensure we leave your property in a great condition that you’re proud to show off to your family and friends!

Commercial grade wallpaper

Office and business spaces are likely to be high traffic areas compared to residential spaces. This is why the type of wallpaper is important. Commercial wallpaper is built to be longer lasting, thicker and more durable. It’s also less likely to suffer from scuffs and stains. When it comes to cleaning, this type of wallpaper is easier to clean without damaging it.

We make sure our commercial clients pick the right wallpaper, that not only lasts for years to come but also fits in with their brand. You can go for a customised wallpaper option to match your branding, pick from the existing array of professional ones on the market, or go for an environmentally friendly, sustainable option.

Spray painting

Spray painting is a great choice if you’re looking for a large area to be painted. This service is often requested by our commercial clients. For large surfaces it is a much quicker and efficient way that provides a uniform finish. However, the area being painted does need to be well ventilated. If you’re looking for something specific to be spray painted, reach out to the team and we are happy to provide a free quote.

We deliver on Quality and Service

And our customers agree.

My husband and I were expecting our first child and were looking for someone to paint the nursery. We were looking for a painting company in Brentford and a friend of ours recommended the Hounslow painting and decorating company. I was quite particular about our requirements as we only wanted to use non-toxic paints. The team were super helpful and worked with us to pick the materials. The end result was fantastic and exactly what we wanted!
Alice & Tom
We had some wallpaper stripping and paint work done for our living room. The painters were friendly and I am very happy with the job. Highly recommend their painting services.
Isabella
I recently used the Hounslow painter decorators to fix up a rental property before my new tenants had to move in. The team were very professional and kept me in the loop on the progress. I was a little worried as I had a very tight timeframe for the work to be completed but the Hounslow painters were efficient and did a quality job. I’ll definitely be hiring them for any future work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Residential work is synonymous with home painting and decorating, domestic painting and decorating or house painting and decorating. It refers to the restoration, rework or enhancement of a property unrelated to business activity. Residential decorating can be related to interior or exterior painting.

Interior decorating includes kitchen remodelling, bathroom tiling or waterproofing, or even drywalling, to name a few of the activities. External painting or decorating tends to refer to things like exterior wall painting, ironworking, wood painting or floor sealing but is not limited to these.

Commercial painting and decorating differs from residential in that it refers to work done on business or company buildings. These include all properties where you would entertain or conduct business with clients or customers. Consequently, Hounslow Painters and Decorators are experts when working with painting and decorating offices, restaurants, bars or stores.

While the style and craftmanship involved with decorating and painting hospitality venues or creating a curated working environment is different from home decorating, we still work closely with our clients to deliver the same boutique work.

There are naturally more services we offer when it comes to commercial refurbishment as there are more varied needs. Schools, for example, may need us to decorate large halls with neutral, robust and cost-efficient paintwork. In contrast, restaurants may require finer detailing, sash window enhancement, or to have spectacular stairways created. Whatever the job, there is no more trusted partner than Hounslow Painters and Decorators.

As tempting as it may be to go straight into painting, the preparation is just as necessary.

Firstly, ensure you have a clear working space, so remove any furniture that may come in the way. If this isn’t possible, move all your furniture to the centre of the room and ensure it’s adequately covered – you don’t want any splatters ruining your brand-new dining room table!

The second step is to prime your walls. This step is crucial to ensure your freshly painted wall not only looks good but is also long-lasting. Once the wall is clean and dry, you’re ready to cover any sockets, switches etc., with masking tape. Also, if the adjacent wall or ceiling is a different colour, we recommend masking the edges for a nice, crisp finish.

The next step of applying a primer is not always necessary unless you are painting over a darker colour. And now you can finally paint your wall with your new colour!

If spending your spare time on painting walls isn’t exciting, why not contact us at Hounslow Decorators? We’ll happily make your vision come to life by painting any wall or ceiling for you.

We have many customers who opt for non-toxic paint. Whether it be because they want to reduce their environmental impact or perhaps they have allergies and find that these more natural paints are a better alternative to the traditional ones. Either way, we are here to help and can discuss your needs via phone or email.

Deciding on a painter or decorator can often feel like a minefield, but it doesn’t have to be!

Here are some things you should have a look at before committing to a company.

  1. Qualifications and experience – make sure the team have the relevant certifications and have they carried out the type of paint work you’re after.
  2. Past work and references – check out the quality of work they have carried out. This will give you a much better idea of what to expect.
  3. Timelines – confirm they are able to carry out and finish the painting and decorating within the timeframe you require. At this stage, we also advise to ask about any potential delays that may arise so you can add in a buffer margin if you need to.
  4. Quality of paints and material – ensure you are happy with the chosen paints and brands. Some of our clients are after a certain aesthetic and the chosen paint and shades can make a huge difference. If you’re not 100% convinced, ask for samples.
  5. Communication – often people overlook this, but it’s important that you agree on the best mode of communication and frequency. Some of our long-term clients are typically happy with a brief at the start and then a check-in at the end. Other newer clients like to be more involved and have regular updates. Make sure your team of painters know what you expect.
  6. Cost – Last but not least, ensure both parties are happy with the agreed costs and that this is in line with your budget. The quote should include costs of material, labour and any additional charges.

This really depends on the type of paint that has ended up on your furniture. We would suggest double checking the paint type and then you can try out some of the following solutions.

With water-based paints, the key is to act quickly!

If it is still wet, we would advise to use a clean, damp cloth to remove as much paint as possible. Hopefully, at this point you’ve either removed most of it. The next thing you could try is mixing warm water with either laundry detergent or soap. Similar to the first step, use this solution with a clean cloth to remove any paint stains.

If you’ve already tried both these methods then the third option we recommend is to give rubbing alcohol a go. But be warned- there is a chance this could damage the natural finish of your furniture so always do a test patch first!

We tend to find that oil-based paints are typically harder to remove, but it is still possible!

If the paint is still wet, then the first thing to do is to use a spoon or dull knife to carefully remove any excess paint. The trick is to be gentle so you don’t damage the furniture surface. The next thing you can try is using a clean cloth with white spirit. Top tip: start from the outside edges so you don’t accidentally end up spreading the paint! You’ll be surprised how easy it is to make this mistake!

If you’ve not had much luck with the first two methods, you can always give warm soapy water a try. It’s also very handy in removing the last remaining bits of paint.

Last but not least, always remember to pat the surface dry once you’ve got your prized furniture back to tip-top shape.

It looks like 2024 is the year focusing on comfort, restorative spaces and wellbeing. Homes where we can get away from the hustle and bustle of London and truly relax. This is reflected in the cosier, calming colours that are in trend at the moment.

Neutrals are always a timeless choice and we’ve found quite the selection, from Lick’s Beige (03) in a Matte finish to Earthborn’s Hopscotch, a warm off-white. We recommend to sample a few on your walls to get a better feel of how it’ll look in your own home.

If you’re a bit bored of the neutral aesthetic then why not go for a lovely terracotta to bring a pop of colour! We love Red House from Morris & Co.

If you’re bold enough, why not go for something even darker. Dark browns and blacks are making an appearance this year.

At first glance these shades may seem a tad dark but in the right place they can work well. Imagine a dark chocolate colour in your snug – a space where you can kick back and unwind after a long day. Farrow & Ball’s Cola is a firm favourite – a lovely red based brown to bring warmth to a room.

For a completely different look, you could opt for blue-greens. These are a great option for bedrooms or living rooms where you want a calming effect. You could go all out and paint all four walls or tone it down by just focusing on painting furniture in the shade instead.

We’ve also noticed more and more of our clients choosing to go for eco-friendly paints and sustainable choices now. Popular brands are Farrow & Ball, Little Greene and Coat.

We have helped our customers decorate small spaces from boxing rooms to unused space under the stairs. There are many different ways you can not only make a small room functional but also beautiful too.

One option is to go for built in furniture. This ensures you make the most of the little space you do have and takes into account any awkward gaps and spaces. Banquette seating is often a popular option for our customers who may have limited space in their dining room. Not only does this look stylish but the option to have storage underneath is of course an added bonus!

When it comes to small bathrooms and bedrooms, it helps to keep the floor space clear. This helps give the impression of more space. You could go for shelves, reading lights above the bed or mounted wash basins. Mirrors are also a great way to bring more light and illusion of more space!

A benefit of a small bathroom is that it’s affordable to tile the whole surface or you could go for a bold, patterned wallpaper which may be a bit much anywhere else in your home! A popular option for small bedrooms is to have a feature wall with a bold wallpaper choice. It instantly brings a splash of personality to the room.

Our clients have also successfully used paint effects to give the impression of higher ceilings. By not painting all the way to the top of the wall we can create a visual trick. The contrast makes the ceiling looks much higher.

Utilising window space is also a great way to have more storage space – a simple shelf can be added for your books or if you’re lucky enough to have a bit more depth there, you could opt for a cozy window seat for reading.

Window restoration is focused on preserving your windows rather than replacing them. This is particularly important for older homes, some which may also be listed buildings. It will allow you to keep the unique features of your home and maintain its architectural significance.

The first step is always to carry out a thorough assessment of the current condition of your windows. We would look at the frame, glass, decor and any relevant historical documents. This helps us understand the original design and materials to then make the most informed decision on the best way forward. We will discuss the work required and provide you with a detailed quote at this stage. Once you are happy, we will start restoring your windows.

The restoration process itself will of course depend on the results of the initial assessment. This can range from repairing or replacing decorative elements, repairing window frames and sashes, replacing glass, wood repair, weather stripping to reduce drafts and improve insulation to stripping the current paint and then repainting.

The final step our painting and decorating team will undertake is to check the work meets the required standards and test the windows too.

The first step is to sand. Clean before applying primer. Choose the right primer depending on type of paint you will be applying. The next step is to apply the paint. Some might say the top coat is not needed, however we always recommend it to make sure your newly varnished bedside table or chest of drawers look as fresh as new for years to come!
