Painting of living room, laundry, bathroom, conservatory, hall, stairs, landing a porch - plus several small areas - including all preparation work and including materials
 
Cost: £1994

"This was the first time we have used Bright New Start and one extremely impressed. We live in a 200 year old farm house so the work was not straight forward but Phil took it all in his stride.

Phil not only did a marvelous job but was a pleasure to have in our home. He was very considerate and tidy plus he gave us helpful advice about colours, etc.

We absolutely recommend Phil and will certainly use him for any future decorating."

Decorated large victorian lounge - papered a feature wall, lined and painted all other walls. Painted ceiling and cornice. All walls were also stripped of old paper and properly prepared.
 
Cost: £450

"Phil was very helpful and patient as I dithered over paint colors. He never put pressure on me to make up my mind and, in the end, it was he who found the perfect paint to complement my paper. He is a perfectionist and the quality of his workmanship is testament to that. I couldn't be more pleased with the end result. "

Thankyou Mrs S, you made the decisions, not dithering, more like taking your time to get the perfect match
