I chose Michael out of pot luck from the internet, but it turned out I knew him! He gave me a quote immediately, then came on time, very prompt, which is always a good sign. I hadnt quite prepared the rooms (as I work long hours), which wasnt a problem for him. He took the tv off the wall, wheraas I wouldnt have had a clue & took shelves off etc. Nothing was too much trouble. When I came home from , everything was back tidy - he was really conscientious about putting the house back together even though it was temporary for the next day. Bedroom was painted & I was amazed at how neat & exact it was round the skirting boards etc. Must have taken ages to tape it all, but it was that level of detail that gave it the "wow" effect. Lounge walls were papered with a tricky pattern. When I came home, again I was taken a back at the level of detail he paid to making it PERFECT. Its like I live in a show house now!!!! Its always a gamble when you choose a decorator that youve never used before. And looking back, Id wish Id used Micheal in previous houses. I'll DEFINITELY use Michael again & he would be the first person Id recommend to anyone thats looking for a decorator.
