Stylish and Unique Wallpaper

By Jill Simpson On August 25, 2017 No Comments

When planning a redecoration project, you are likely to go through a series of decisions. One of these may be the choice as to whether you want to apply wallpaper as part of your redesign. Part of this decision-making process is the fact that this will increase the cost of your project.

Choosing wallpaper CheshireSome may be confident that this is well-worth the cost and will know exactly what wallpaper they want. Some may need support in selecting which wallpaper is best-suited to their specific project. Either way we will offer advice that will help the process.

Are there any other factors that need to be discussed?

The quality of your walls will play an important role in what preparation is needed. Finish papers will more than likely need to be lined prior to application. Other papers, such as blown vinyl may not need to be lined prior to application. Again, this is an area to which we will provide detail about that will further benefit your work.

Bedroom Decorating Inspiration:

Stylish wallpaper CheshireWe were asked to redecorate this bedroom in Mottram St Andrew. The paper was selected from Farrow and Ball. We offered guidance with regards to the amount of wallpaper to purchase.

This can sometimes be quite a challenge for our clients as it is common place with many suppliers that you cannot return your unused wallpaper rolls.

Why is this?

Essentially higher quality rolls of wallpaper are made in batches. This means there may be very slight alterations between batch numbers. Although many of us may not tell these minor imperfections or slight colour changes; to the trained eye they are prevalent.

Unique wallpaper CheshireSome individual rolls of wallpaper can be costly so it is therefore important to ensure you order the right amount. Too little and you will be left short and too much and you will be left out of pocket.

This decorating project showed evidence of how a room can be transformed with beautiful and unique wallpaper designs.

Careful selection of your wallpaper designs will make such a difference and this paper truly matched the unique style of this characterful home.

How to Decorate a Room

By Jill Simpson On May 3, 2017 No Comments

The question of how to decorate a room is a straightforward one. Generally, the process follows similar steps but care and consideration into each of these steps will make a difference. It is vitally important that one the decorating work is complete that the paintwork is seamlessly smooth.

We recently completed this redecoration project in Somerford, Cheshire. Our clients wanted an injection of colour into their little girl’s bedroom. To start with we boarded one wall. The original skirting was removed prior to work commencing. Decorating preparation is key!

Home Decorating Cheshire How to decorate Cheshire






Once the wall was fully boarded it was then meticulously skimmed in order to achieve a beautifully smooth finish. The wall was then left to fully dry with the aid of our driers. This speeds up the process and minimises disruption for our clients.

Decorating Preparation CheshireOnce the wall was fully dried the skirting boards were replaced, the walls fully caulked and everywhere sanded in preparation for the new paint. A modern pink shade was chosen and this was complimented with a light grey ceiling and grey woodwork. The combination made an incredible statement once completed with all soft furnishings matching these colour choices.

Decorating girl’s bedrooms can sometimes be a challenge due to the fact that tastes change and fashions quickly come in and out of favour. Our advice would be to keep the walls and wood work relatively neutral and go use furnishings and framed prints to add character. These are much easier to change than a total room redecoration.

Have you got younger children? It may also be worth considering, as these clients did, to invest in a wipeable paint. We are able to offer a colour-match service with the option of this paint alternative.

Our aim is to make sure that you get the most out of your redecoration project and to achieve your vision with ease and simplicity. We will always do all we can to support the process; please call today on 01477 535862 to discuss your project.

Creating features within your home allows you the opportunity to inject your personality. We used a variety of decorating techniques to ensure the best possible finish. This provides smooth surfaces with crisp, clean lines.

We have such high, exacting standards that we enjoy going the extra mile to ensure that we can exceed the expectations of our clients. This forms part of our business ethos in offering a service that we feel is second to none.

Bold Wallpaper Prints CheshireWe offered advice to use a scrubbable paint in certain areas of the house. Paint finishes and paint types play an important role in the overall success of any project.

Base coat was applied to the newly plastered areas and emulsion was used for both the ceilings and walls. All new wood work was primed, undercoated and finished with satin wood. Any areas that were being wallpapered were fully lined prior to any finish paper being applied.

We were also required to make good areas where the plasterer had not finished to our standards; this included additional preparation to other areas so that again, our superior finish could be achieved.

This project provides evidence of the range of decorating services that we can offer. If you would like to arrange a quotation please call us on 01606 831255; we will be happy to help you through the process of your redecoration project.
