Do you need a bedroom painted or wallpapered? Are you planning to redecorate an entire property, including the outside walls? Jobs like this can do a lot more than simply beautifying your internal space - top-notch work could also boost the value of your property.
Each of our painting & decorating tradespeople has passed a strict five-stage vetting process to join John Lewis. This includes a thorough inspection of the quality of their past work, as well as a review what their previous customers have to say. We’re so confident in our London decorators that we even provide our customers with a 12-month guarantee. With Home Solutions, you can rest easy knowing you’re in safe hands.
When you use Home Solutions from John Lewis, you will have the option to buy your own paint or wallpaper. Alternatively, our tradespeople can take care of your material for you. We use three top-rated brands: Farrow & Ball, Little Greene and Dulux. Simply let your painter & decorator know what you want, and they will make sure that your job is completed with the most high-quality materials.
Wherever you are in London, our tradespeople will be available at a date and time to suit you. As well as Central London areas such as Kensington and Westminster, Home Solutions is also available in boroughs which are further out, such as Barking, Barnet, Ealing, Camden, Greenwich, Hammersmith and Hackney.
Hire the right painter & decorator
When it comes to painting and decorating, getting the best results requires a practised hand. This is where professional painters & decorators come in. Whether you are painting internal or external walls or adding or removing wallpaper, an experienced painter & decorator can get the work done to a professional level in no time at all.
There is no set path to becoming a painter & decorator. Because of this, the most important thing to look out for in a candidate is experience. Some painters & decorators will have completed apprenticeships, and any who have worked on construction sites will have earned Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) cards. Remember, every John Lewis tradesperson must pass a strict vetting process to prove both their experience and the quality of their work.
If you need to hire a painter & decorator in London, it is important not to rely too much on national averages. The reason for this is that prices in London tend to be quite different from those elsewhere in the UK. You may also find that hiring someone at short notice, in the evening, at weekends or on public holidays may be more expensive.
For certain jobs, a painter & decorator will charge standardised prices. Other jobs will come with hourly rates. In your case, it will all depend on the size and scope of your job. If the task you have in mind is particularly large, you may need to have a painter & decorator come and inspect your property before offering a quote.
With Home Solutions, you will have two options when it comes to getting a price. The Paint My Home tool can generate an online quote for you in no time at all. That said, you should still keep in mind that extra costs such as parking and labour may still be added later on. Your painter & decorator will let you know about any additions in advance.
The second option is to book a visit and have a painter & decorator inspect your property. After measuring the area of the job in question, they will then offer you an accurate quote.
