What inspired you to start your own business?

While working for another window treatment company many of the customers were constantly asking me how do they care and clean for their window treatments. After doing some research I decided that I would offer the cleaning of window treatment service. Then I quickly realize that my true passion was in decorating of the window treatments so I quickly merged both services.

Painting & Decoration - Interior FAQs

Expand all

How much does it cost to hire interior painters? Though the figure can vary slightly depending on where you are based, there are some simple day rate figures you can use to calculate roughly how much you should be looking to spend.

The difference between an interior specialist and an exterior specialist comes down to skill sets, materials and the tools involved. Exterior painters may specialize in things like the outside of large buildings, bridges and other structures.

On the other hand, interior decorators focus on the interior aspect of living, commercial or hospitality spaces. While some companies will offer both commercial interior and exterior painting, it is a good idea to search for a specific indoor specialist to suit your project’s brief.

There are a number of interior decorating styles to choose from and after a little bit of research, you can be sure to find one to suit your space’s needs. Before hiring your decorator, it helps to have some ideas of the look you wish to create.

  • Transitional - Transitional designs are elegant and give a balance between elegant existing features like fireplaces but also more modern accessories with clean lines. Simple colour schemes are often used.

  • Art Deco - Most people have heard of this style of design. It originated in France in the early 1900s and features graduated motifs as well as Egyptian and African designs and more exotic accenting styles.

  • Classical - Classical is another design style that will often have a minimal colour scheme, as well as a lot of sophisticated features like columns and architectural features. This interior style has its roots in Greek and Roman cultures and ancient civilizations.

  • Contemporary - Of course, what is contemporary and popular at the time can change, but contemporary interior design involves clean lines and modern style. Both finishes and colour schemes are often simplistic.

Depending on where you are based, it can be tricky to check the credentials of your painter or decorator. An interior decorator certification can be a good indicator. For example, if someone advertises that they are a Certified Interior Decorator (CID) then this shows they have a qualification.

Any tradesperson you are involving in your house’s interior decoration should be able to provide you with proof of insurance. It’s a good idea to check reviews from previous customers and examples of past work. Not only will this help you get fresh inspiration for your interior project, but it will also help you make an informed decision on what decorator to hire.

Before you work with a painter and decorator, consider the following:

  • Quotes - Are they happy to provide you with a quote with no obligation?

  • Testimonials - They should be able to provide you with proof of other happy customers. A website or social media profile is a good place to look for images of past projects, too.

  • Memberships and accreditations - Check if they have the CID qualification or are a member of other painting and decorating bodies specific to the area.

  • Specialist expertise - They may have a specific ability or reputation of working with a specific style of interior design that you are looking for.

When you are looking for interior decorating services you will find both interior design and interior decorating services advertised. What is the difference?

The role of an Interior Designer
An interior designer is skilled in curating the look and feel of a space, including the planning of the design, fittings and furnishings. Though they might also offer decorating services, they are usually employed for their expertise when it comes to making a space look beautiful and stay functional.

The role of an Interior Decorator
So, what does an interior decorator do?
An interior decorator will not be involved in the design aspect. Simply put, a painting and decorating specialist will be carrying out the legwork but not necessarily doing any of the planning and consulting. They don’t provide the interior decorating ideas, instead, they put the ideas into action. This may include preparing walls for paint, removing and hanging wallpaper and painting walls.
