Why hire a professional decorator?

If it’s time to redecorate your home, there are many reasons why you should hire a professional decorator.

They’ve done this before

hire a professional decoratorNo matter how big or small the job, a professional will have the experience and knowledge that counts.  They know how to prep thoroughly for a job, how to get the perfect finish and how to source materials or advise you on what will be best.  Perhaps there is a better material to use than the one you were thinking of – this is where that experience is invaluable with helping you get the best results.

They have probably done hundreds of similar jobs before and have everything they need from paint brushes to ladders.  They know how to avoid paint splashes and bubbles and what to do if something unexpected happens.  The tricky parts of the job, like painting behind radiators and window frames, are things they will be skilled at but could take you hours to figure out.

You may want to try some small jobs yourself but others definitely benefit from professional work, like exterior or ceiling painting.  Safety is another great reason to call the experts in, instead of trying to balance on your ladder that’s not quite tall enough.

It will save time

Most of us lead busy lives and when you undertake a big decorating task it can be daunting; from watching youtube tutorials to finding the best materials and then all the trial and error.  It will take much longer than you think tohire a professional decorator complete and mean living with the mess in the meantime.

This is where expert help makes all the difference – you can leave them to it, you know the result will be good and you won’t drive yourself crazy trying to achieve it and spend your weekends covered in paint.  They know the exact primer, paint and finish that is best to use for each area and where to get it from.

When you hire someone to do the job for you, they can tell you pretty much exactly how long it will take and you can plan your time around it.  Plus it will be a lot quicker as they know what they are doing and they already have the tools. They will do all the laborious, time consuming prep work like stripping, sanding and using primers, to a high standard.  They know how to protect your furniture so there’s no messy clean up afterwards.  Also, there is no risk of them and abandoning the project giving up halfway through!

It might even save you money

What may seem like a money saving idea may actually turn out to be the exact opposite.  It is difficult to budget for ahire a professional decorator  project when it’s the first time you have done it. You may find yourself needing a lot more materials and tools than you had expected.  It is costly to get all the proper tools needed for decorating and you might end up never using them again.  If things go wrong, you may well have to buy yet more materials.  Once you account for everything from ladders, dust sheets and brushes to sandpaper, filler, primer and paint, it could be cheaper to just hire someone.

A professional will have everything they need to hand and know exactly how to use it.  They will also know where to source the best prices for materials, which may not be available to individual customers.

When you hire someone, you will know from the outset what the cost is likely to be.  A professional job will most likely add value to your home too.  Ask yourself if the time it would take you to do it yourself would actually be worth it.
