Wallpapering sounds easy but that is not always the case. The flatness of the wall, the size of the room, tricky obstacles and matching paper patterns can all prove to be troublesome if you are not experienced. Employing a decorator to hang your wallpaper can give it a professional finish that can be hard to achieve.
If you have a large area that needs painting such as an office or simply don't have time to paint your home yourself then employing a decorator to do this will give it a professional finish. Ensure that you check whether charges are per hour or per job and if the decorator will be supplying the paint or whether you will need to purchase this yourself.
There may be additional tasks other than wallpapering and painting that a decorator may be able to quote you for. A good decorator may also be experienced at tiling and jobs such as picture hanging and coving.
If the exterior of your home or premises requires painting it could be dangerous to attempt this yourself. It could be worthwhile getting a quote from a decorator to carry out tasks such as this, particularly if tall heights are involved.
If your ceilings are in need of repair, a decorator may be able to quote you for this and advise the best course of action to take. An unsightly ceiling that you presume may need plastering may only need a coat of thick backing paper to restore it and this could prove a cheaper alternative.
