I called HML Painting and Decorating last week and that, at the last minute too. It was to wallpaper 4 rooms in total at my property in Westminster. Rohimul and Malik attended from HML and completed the work (which was absolutely outstanding and better then I anticipated) and all within 1 day.
They are no nonsense, no quibble and a very good clean as you go team. I would use and recommend HML to anyone who's looking to get wallpapering done.
Fantastic job guys and thank you very much! Will be in touch when I need anything else done.

Starting from scratch
The work of a painter and decorator can vary greatly. Their experience can include single-room restorations or redecorating an entire property. Professional painting isn’t just limited to walls either. Your decorator can work with windows, skirting boards, fences, and garden furniture. Each one of these jobs has specific requirements, such as recommended paints for certain surfaces. Specialist equipment could also be necessary. Painting a fence, for instance, will often involve using spray canisters.
A lot of work takes place before the first can of paint is opened. A professional will first make measurements to ensure they get the correct volume of materials. They may then have to carry out small fixes, such as filling in cracks or removing mould. From there, they’ll strip away the existing paint or wallpaper. If they’re working on a wooden surface, it may also have to be sanded, primed and varnished.
Getting the job done
A home renovation often involves balancing multiple elements. The goal of a painter and decorator is to get the job done on time, within budget, and to a high standard. They should also be flexible, so they can carry out works in your property with minimal disruption.
Becoming a painter and decorator doesn’t require any formal qualifications. Most people start as an apprentice. A trusted professional should belong to a trade body such as the Painting and Decorating Association. If the work is on a building site, they should be a member of the Construction Skills Certificate Scheme.
Many decorators offer additional services, such as plastering, flooring, wiring, and plumbing. You’re free to choose a professional that offers all or some of these services. This ensures a consistent standard of craftsmanship. It can also save you money on hiring multiple professionals.
Making the right choices
Picking the right paint involves more than the right colour. For instance, there are specific paints for materials, such as brick or stucco. Ask if there is a lifelong warranty on materials, or whether they could degrade over time. If you want more options to choose from, a professional will likely have connections with wholesalers. This means they could source a custom shade of paint or textile.
You might have a very clear idea about how the final result will look. But have you explored all your options? Ask your decorator what they’re capable of. Are they able to create patterns, stencils or even murals? When you’re in the hands of a trusted professional, you’re free to use your imagination.

How do you prepare for a painting or decorating job?
It’s very true what they say about proper planning. We’re very meticulous when starting a new project. We make sure we have the exact measurements, and that we know how many materials we’re going to be working with. Customers can be eager to start right away, but they always end up grateful when they see the final results.
Do you have a particular area of expertise?
We’re unique in that we can do a lot with spray paints. They allow us to create something original with a lot of intricate detail. Whether it’s a feature wall in your bedroom, or a piece of furniture that needs an upgrade. We created a mural for a community centre in Hackney, and we ended up being featured in the press. This led to us getting lots of commissions for similar work. But we also work on a lot of standard painting and decorating jobs for homes across London.
What should customers expect when working with you?
More often than not we can tell from the beginning what will work. Of course, we’re there to make the customer happy. But there have been times when we've suggested something drastically different and our customers love it! We’re never afraid to suggest alternatives, and that really sets us apart.
