Questions to Ask Your Decorator

By Jill Simpson On February 5, 2018 No Comments

When considering your decorating project, the focus is often placed on finding a decorator and getting a date booked in. Taking into account the fact that many reputable decorators are generally booked up in advance, preparation into what questions to ask will support the process immensely.

Being prepared will mean that you get more out of the entire process. It could also mean that you achieve a superior result as you may find information that will alter what paint choices you make (for example). We have put together some questions that may support you through the process prior to booking in a date for your redecoration work.

When could the work be booked into start?

Decorator WilmslowIt is wise to ask about anticipated start dates as this allows you to forecast both for your budget and for your schedule. Rooms may need to be cleared prior to the start date so it is important that you find a date with your decorator that meets your expectations and allows you enough time to plan successfully.

What paint choices are available?

There is a huge variation on paint choices. This includes colours, paint finishes and makes. Speaking about what finish you want and whether you want scrubbable colours may help determine which paint makes you can select from. Can you save money by colour matching? The best outcome is one that you are pleased with and that will stand the test of time. You are then getting true value for money.

What limitations may there be for my project?

This is a really important question. There may be limitations to your project or there may not but asking the question is always wise. You may be looking to achieve a seamlessly smooth paint finish but have walls that are pitted, have been previously covered by wallpaper or may just have the character of old properties. Even with the use of our dustless sanding system, a totally flat and perfectly flawless finish may not be achievable. There are other options available to you; this may mean that lining the walls would improve the appearance.

Decorator WilmslowOne of the best compliments visitors to your home can offer is the fact that it is warm and welcoming. Does this mean that you need to select warm colours? Not always. Other ways include wallpapering feature walls, soft furnishings and other homely additions.

How to Create the Perfectly Co-ordinated Room

By Jill Simpson On October 13, 2017 No Comments

Creating the perfectly co-ordinated space can be a challenge for some homeowners. Without starting from scratch, there are ways in which you can update a space to achieve this co-ordinated look.

This week we have been working in Somerford for a client who was looking to inject a bit of character into her new build property. Although new build properties are fresh, clean and crisp they often lack a softness that can be achieved with redecoration. This redecoration can be in the form of soft, subtle colours or beautiful wallpapers.

How to create that co-ordinated look:

There will be some larger pieces of furniture that you may be looking to keep. These are larger investments so it may not be possible or feasible to change these with your redecoration project. Therefore, it is important to find areas of the room that can be altered with ease.

Decorator Holmes ChapelThese may be:

  • Pillows
  • Curtains
  • Ornaments
  • Light fixtures
  • Table lamps
  • Pictures
  • Mirrors

It is good advice not just to stick with one colour for a room. This picture appropriately shows that a range of colours, carefully co-ordinated can create a much more interesting space. Our client had selected some beautiful patterned pillows that brought another dimension to the room.

The wallpaper application was the last part of the job. She asked us to wallpaper a number of rooms in her home and the results were incredible. The rooms were immediately softer and made the difference between a house and a home.

Time invested in finding the right wallpaper to compliment all of the other elements of the room clearly paid dividends as the end result was a light and inviting space.

Our tip: don’t worry if you make mistakes! Co-ordinating a room is not an exact science. Concentrating on smaller items means that if mistakes are made that they can be easily fixed. Call Vantage Decorators Ltd today to request a quotation on 01477 535862.

Redecorating? Get Inspired!

By Jill Simpson On July 18, 2017 No Comments

This is an easy statement to make. But what does it mean? How do you find inspiration and how do you combine all of the ideas to create your perfect space?

Redecorating a room can come with some pressure in the fact that you are likely to have a vision. How do you make this vision a reality, whilst avoiding any prospect of over-busying the room? Colour choice is the best starting point for you.

When we discuss colour choices with our clients it is possible that they have preconceived ideas. This vision can sometimes guide us easily towards a colour selection. Or, it can do completely the opposite and end up being a completely different colour choice than originally considered.

Decorator Holmes ChapelSome of our best advice comes once the main wall colour is selected. So many of our clients automatically select white wood work or white ceilings. Our advice is to take your time and be creative. Possibly consider a stronger colour for your wood work and ceiling.

This does not necessarily mean a drastic colour selection; maybe just something that better suits your wall colour. A colour that will compliment this and offer a more timeless and unique feel.

Inspiration comes from everywhere; previous clients work, magazines, design websites and even other people. Inspiration for your newly decorated room does not necessarily equal bold print. It can, in fact, mean simple design.

We are always on hand to offer advice. This proves to be invaluable to our clients in their project is planned. We try really hard to make sure each of our clients have an extremely positive experience in dealing with our Company.

Complimentary Colours

By Jill Simpson On May 11, 2017 No Comments

In all that we do, it is very straightforward to see that design is individual. This is part of why we love what we do. The quotation process and the time leading up to any decorating project starting is our opportunity to fully understand our clients’ individual needs.

The actual quotation process is an opportunity for our clients to get to know us and for us to get to know them. Once the works have been agreed it is then time to select colours or other design elements.

Some clients like our support in choosing paint colours for their project; others may not. Advice is always offered to ensure the best possible result is achieved.

Complimentary Colours CheshireWe recently completed a home redecoration project for a client in Sandbach, Cheshire. She had purchased a new home and took on the incredible job of designing the entire house. This image shows how an injection of colour, mixed with other carefully selected design elements can create a sumptuous and sophisticated space.

Yes, design is individual, but this is where ideas can be drawn from and changed to meet your individual needs. It may be that you consider feature walls, different coloured wood work or the injection of another feature colour.

Either way; when considering redecorating a room, it is important that you consider many different options with regards to colour and design. This will make the difference between a beautifully newly decorated room and a real statement space.

Our advice would be not to be scared of colour. We carefully select our paint products in order to achieve a brilliant finish. Combining complimentary colours is an exceptional way to bring the best out of any room, big or small.

Are you looking for an experienced decorator who can provide a design package? Call today on 01477 535862. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have. We take great pride in offering brilliant customer service.

Simple Design Still Creates a Statement

By Jill Simpson On April 26, 2017 No Comments

Large spaces can sometimes be thought to be tricky to decorate. Individuals feel overwhelmed by the room proportions and the huge range of choices. It may be that they feel added pressure as if they get it wrong, it can be problematic and expensive to alter.

Design Ideas CheshireWe are here to offer assurance that simple design can still create a unique statement. We enjoy taking the time to offer advice and tips on design elements. The key to creating an adaptable space is to not get bogged down by the room size, but instead to think of it like other smaller rooms. This may make it feel more manageable.

By selecting more neutral colours, you are able to add other elements such as rugs, art and furniture to help define the space. Why is this a good idea? This is often considered to be wise as these items are easier to change when considering updating the space.

Simpe Design Alderley EdgeAnother great tip is to ensure that you consider storage. Too many times is it seen that rooms are redecorated and redesigned, then once completed, the space is filled with clutter. Armoires and ample closed storage allows for items to have a place. Items such as these and storage trunks are incredibly fashionable and will add stylish statements.

A top tip when considering colours and whether to use paint or wallpaper is to carefully think about the purpose of the room. This ensures that the area will be practical and functional. First consider paint finishes. Would a scrubbable paint be worth considering? These materials may be more initially but the lifespan of this paint type will be more than worth it in the long run.

It is sometimes better to consider a large space as a collection of smaller spaces. Are you looking for a quality decorator to support your redesign project? Call Vantage Decorators on 01477 535862.

Freshen Up Your Hall, Stairs and Landing

By Jill Simpson On March 23, 2017 No Comments

It is sometimes over looked but our hall is the space that most of us see on entering our homes. We can often be accused of getting used to the way that it looks. It is often an area that suffers most wear.

Decorator Cheshire Cheshire DecoratorIt should therefore be one of the first areas you consider redecorating. The impact of this can be great with much aesthetic reward.

We were invited to quote for this redecoration project in Congleton, Cheshire. This client mentioned that he was planning on getting a number of quotations prior to selecting their chosen decorator.

After exchanging a few e-mails it was agreed that they would like us to complete the work. We scheduled the work and kept in contact up to that date.

It was agreed that the area would be stripped of wallpaper prior to the work commencing. Due to the age of the house the walls and ceilings, in particular, were in a bad state. A lot of preparation work went into ensuring that the walls and ceiling were ready to be lined.

Interiors Cheshire Cheshire InteriorsThe ceiling required a lot of work to get them to the best possible finish. There are many techniques used to ensure that a seamless finish is achieved. This means that the seams between the lining paper should be invisible and the general appearance should be flawless.

This was quite a challenge in an older house where the ceilings were badly cracked.

The hallway was completed and looked entirely different from when we arrived. It was decided by the client that the wood did not need treating or painting. This meant that it was all fully protected during the scheduled works.

What a Redecoration Project Can Do For You

By Jill Simpson On March 9, 2017 No Comments

We are all often guilty of letting the daily grind sweep us along. However, there are many things that we can do to freshen up our homes. With a newly designed room, it is amazing what a restorative feeling this can offer.

Home Design Holmes ChapelWe completed this job recently for a client in Cheshire. The images show one of the many rooms that we decorated as part of a larger project. Our client sent us these images to show us what the room looked like finished. She had just had new curtains up to perfectly compliment her newly decorated bedroom.

One element of our work that we are often asked about is our charge for daily rates. Many decorators select to offer a daily rate for the work that they complete. We tend not to offer this as it can often become confusing to our clients.

Instead we complete a detailed quotation process. This process offers us the opportunity to discuss the work required with our clients. It allows us to offer advice and detail to which we feel will support the project and possibly improve it.

Home Design CheshireFrom this point we offer a written quotation that outlines the work that we will complete. This offers information and descriptions of every element. At the end of this we then offer a price for the job. This means that there are no hidden charges or nasty surprises at the end of the job.

It only takes an individual to add on a day or two to their anticipated timescales and then the job has turned out to be more expensive than planned. We aim to offer a service that is transparent and comprehensive. We tend to find that this offers our clients assurance that they are dealing with a professional Company.

We work conscientiously throughout the day, ensuring that disruption is kept to a minimum. We understand that your home is your own. We therefore try to ensure that the time taken to complete the work is also kept to a minimum, whilst never wavering on our high quality workmanship.

Kitchen Redecoration Wilmslow

By Jill Simpson On January 24, 2017 No Comments

This kitchen redecoration job was completed in Wilmslow, Cheshire for a repeat customer. She was having a new kitchen fitted and wanted us to decorate it once installed. We worked with her in order to co-ordinate the process so that it ran smoothly.

Our client selected a grey colour scheme to compliment her beautiful and stylish kitchen.

New Kitchen CheshireWe often discuss the preparatory work required to create a seamless surface. A lot of work is invested in this process as it is the foundation of successful decorating work.

Preparing walls is a process that needs to be tailored, depending on the individual challenges faced throughout the decorating process. Why is this important?

If the correct procedure is not followed then it is possible that:

  • paint can flake prematurely
  • stains can show through again
  • the surfaces can appear uneven
  • the general appearance is unsatisfactory

Decorating Preparation

The above information allows you an insight into the importance of careful preparation. The good news is that once completed correctly, careful preparation can offer a brilliant, long-lasting finish.

Kitchen redecoration CheshireWhere more important than in a light and bright space. Certain lighting works to highlight imperfections in walls and ceilings. Even when the walls are evenly coated, imperfections can draw your eye and detract from the overall appearance.

We draw on our time-served experience and expert machinery in order to achieve the best finish. We use a sanding system that filters away the dust and dirt particles. This offers the following benefits:

  • The dust created by the sanding process is filtered away and therefore not left to be airborne
  • We are able to better monitor the preparation process
  • A superior finish is achieved

Plastering Problems Whilst Decorating

By Jill Simpson On December 28, 2016 No Comments

We visited this property to quote for redecorating their bathroom. Once the process of the quotation and acceptance was completed we arranged a time to start the work.

Bathroom Redecorating WilmslowIt is an inevitable fact that some projects turn out to be more challenging that originally planned. With this job we started to strip back the existing wall paper. As the wallpaper started to be removed, it was evident that the plaster behind it was no longer fixed to the wall.

There are many reasons as to why this can occur but the likely factor is moisture or water damage over many years. In these cases it is important:

TO make sure that all the damage plaster is completely removed

If damaged plaster is left on the wall it can pose future problems. With any redecoration project you need confidence that the work you are completing will stand the test of time. It also needs to be appropriate for the room’s intended use.

Bathroom Redecoration WilmslowTO NOT panic

We offer full and comprehensive services for redecorating. In this case we were able to fully remove all of the necessary plaster and re-skim it. This provides an even and sturdy finish for the re-application of paint or wallpaper.

This is where our experience and ability to provide a range of decorating services really does offer value. It means we are able to complete all services with the knowledge they are done to an incredibly high standard.

Why Redecorate?

By Jill Simpson On December 11, 2016 No Comments

The way in which we busy lives means that redecorating our homes may be one of the last things on our minds. We get used to the way it looks, the marks and scuffs on the walls and the discoloured wood work. Sometimes we look over these imperfections because life is just too hectic.

This is where Vantage Decorators arrives. Considering redecoration does not mean hassle, stress, choices and disruption. With us we support our clients through the process so that all of these elements are taken away. They are replaced with excitement and the assurance that our clients are dealing with professionals.

Many people may ask; why bother to redecorate?

It may be that you have a busy family home. Children may have left hand trails up the stair wall, the dog may have dirtied the wall near their bed or the woodwork has seen better days. But why bother because it will just look the same again within a week. Right? Wrong!

Grey paint options WilmslowWe have specialist advice that will enable our freshly painted walls and woodwork to remain crisp and clean as long as possible. This means that your dreary and drab looking spaces can once again look refreshed. This will leave you with an exceptionally new vigour for your home. There is something about a newly decorated room that offers you a new lease of life and a sense of pride and accomplishment.

Bedroom Redecoration:

These images show a redecoration project that we completed recently in Wilmslow. This was for a regularly returning client.

Grey paint WilmslowIt was decided that we would strip back the existing wall paper. Once this job started, we soon realised that removing the wallpaper was revealing a bigger problem. As the wallpaper was being removed the plaster behind it crumbled. We offered information and advice to our clients which meant that the bad plaster had to be removed as much as possible and then re-plastered.

We could then build it back up and make-good what had been wrong for many years, hidden behind the wallpaper. We offered support throughout the process so that our clients felt as little stress as possible. They were really pleased with the result.

Wood work colours WilmlsowIt is always an intriguing element of our work that we get to have an insight into individual personalities of our customers. This customer got in touch with us at the latter stages of completing on her new build property.

She was looking to get organised with the property so that she could co-ordinate a schedule for moving in. This was her first home so she was looking to create a unique and bespoke design throughout.

We say it a lot, but design is individual. So is the requirement of help with regards to colour selection or paint finish. Some clients require a lot of information and support and others know exactly what they would like to achieve and how.

When we spoke to her it became apparent that the house was not yet handed over. We arranged to meet our client at the show home so that we could provide a quotation for the work to be completed.

Decorators WilmslowWe wanted to ensure that the process was made as straightforward as possible, knowing that the likely other stresses of moving did not need to be added to.

It became apparent on discussions and once we received the colour choices that our client wanted to get as far away from the white walls / white ceilings look of the typical new build properties. She had carefully selected a range of colours for each room, selecting colours for the woodwork, ceilings and walls in some cases.

Decorating Preparation Advice

By Jill Simpson On January 21, 2016 No Comments

It is often the case that with any home improvement project that you hear the advice ‘preparation, preparation, preparation’ and it comes as no surprise that this is key when contemplating home decoration.

Decorators AlderleyWhy? Preparing your walls prior to being decorated will leave a superior finish once completed. The requirements for preparation vary from job to job and an understanding of how to approach this is important.

Neglect at this stage could even lead to a further problems down the line with possible flaking paint or wallpaper that has started to peel shortly after application.

Decorating Advice

Where do you start? All cracks and holes should be completely filled and left to dry. Decorators caulk should then be applied to all edges as this will allow a better result.

Once the filler and caulk have dried completely it is important to prepare the wall surface.

This process will provide a smooth finish for the paint to be applied. This is why it is so important to sand the walls. The best results are achieved with an orbital sander. This vastly speeds up the process and with careful use produces a seamlessly even finish.

Decorator AlderleyWe use a Mirka orbital sander; this is a dustless sanding system that filters away the fine particles from the sanding process. Why is this important?

  • It allows us to monitor our work continuously
  • It offers a virtually dust free service, ensuring the air quality of our clients properties remains unaffected
  • It speeds up clean up

Did you know…? Any new plaster needs to be primed. This solution is made with a mix of emulsion and water in equal quantities.

We are fastidious about ensuring that every skill is employed throughout the decorating process to consistently produce results that we believe are unrivalled. If you would like to enquire about decorating please contact us today on 01606 831255. Keep reading for more decorating tips!

Wallpapering Techniques Alderley Edge

These images show part of a larger decorating job that we took on in Alderley Edge. This work was for one of our valued returning clients and formed just part of a much larger house renovation project.

Decorating Services Cheshire Decorating Services Alderley EdgeThe homeowners wanted to create a unique statement for their downstairs WC and chose a sophisticated and striking wallpaper pattern that would create this look. Wallpapering is a true art and a skill that, when completely correctly can create a seamlessly stunning room.

Exceptional attention to detail was offered in order to match the pattern throughout all areas of the room.

This room was a particular challenge as there were a number of areas that were boxed in. This required in-depth precision and care to ensure that the pattern flowed round each corner and onto the individual walls.

A high-grade grey wood work paint was selected to complement the walls and flooring. The end result was nothing short of amazing and our clients were so pleased with the standards of finish that we were able to offer. Even on close inspection they could not identify a seam!

Our client had some home renovation work completed on their house in Wilmslow. We worked closely with them over the process of the project. Once the work had been completed we arranged to complete the redecoration work.

Paint Finishes Wilmslow Wallpapers Wilmslow






There were a number of rooms that required redecoration throughout this beautiful home. Our client had selected a comprehensive range of wallpapers for the individual rooms.

This included a woodland scene for their dining area, a bold print for their WC and some really stunning wallpapers for their child’s bedroom and play room.

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.
