It may be tempting to try a bit of DIY and paint your home yourself. However, it is easy to overlook bits that a professional would not. It is also easy to accidentally stain your furniture and carpets without the correct protective equipment.

Here, we look at why it is recommended that you opt for a professional painter and decorator when looking for those home or office improvements.


A professional painter and decorator will have the experience required to know what to keep in mind when painting your rooms. They will quickly assess how best to carry out the job and the tools and workforce necessary. They will be able to allocate the ideal colour texture and colour for your walls and know exactly where to source them.

Tools and Techniques

A professional business, or sole trader, will possess all the tools and equipment for the job. This means you will not have to worry about paying out for ladders, brushes, covers, and paint yourself. A professional will know the best colour mixing techniques to ensure you get the best results. Each project is unique, and an experienced painter and decorator will tailor their service to deliver the best possible job.


Professional painters and decorators should be covered with the relevant health and safety insurance. This means there is no need to worry about paying for repairs if something were to go wrong. A lot of professionals will also provide a warranty, giving that extra peace of mind.


We have all been in a situation where a home improvement project has ended up taken three times as long as we thought. Using a professional service means your job will be completed swiftly and efficiently. They will be used to working fast, meaning you can enjoy your freshly decorated surroundings quickly and easily.

Start to Finish

A professional decorator will take care of your project from start to finish. This means that they take care of all preparation, right through to the cleaning up after completion. They will keep you informed every step of the way and work quickly and safely.

It is all too easy to start a painting job yourself, only to be distracted by work/life/family and never get round to finishing it. This is not a worry when using a professional painter and decorator. They take care of all aspects, leaving you to enjoy the results with minimal disruption.
