I came across Marshels website looking for a decorator. They took over wallpapering from another decorator whom I felt was struggling with the job. Marshels contract Manager allocated the job to a very skilled, conscientious, meticulous and considerate staff. A real craftsman. He had to be as the plaster work in my house is not particularly good. The job was done within the timeframe and with great care and consideration for me and my house. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We recently used Marshels to repaint and decorate the front of our shop. From start to finish the experience has been exceptional! Steve initially came out and quoted within a couple of days of my enquiry. The work was carried out within a couple of weeks of proceed. They worked around our closed hours, meaning it didn't affect our working day. The work carried out was to exceptional standard. Steve stayed in touch throughout the project, finishing with a visit to sign the job off. I can not recommend Marshels enough and I shall be using them in the future for home projects. Thanks again to all

Really happy with our newly painted walls! It took a while for the work to get done, obviously Marshels are popular! And a bit pricey, but can’t fault the work at all!! Would definitely recommend!

We were very pleased with the work which Marshels did in renovating the exterior of our rendered house, and the highly professional approach which was adopted. Shane and Drew diligently cleared up every day ensuring that there was no mess and kept us informed as to progress. They went the extra mile in addressing other small issues which arose. Adam provided managerial oversight of the work and checked that we were happy with the final result. We would unhesitatingly recommend them and will use them again.

We employed Marshels to help us carry out a complete refurbishment of a rental property we had purchased in Guildford. We knew that there was a lot of work necessary but Jamie and his team proved to be thorough and professional throughout, providing a very detailed quotation, coordinating the various trades necessary (electricians, plumbers, plasterers etc), and finishing the flat to a very good standard. Whenever there were decisions to be made, Marshels were in touch and responded promptly; we really felt we could trust them to do a good job for us throughout. We will certainly be using Marshels for any future works of this nature and I warmly recommend their services.

Marshels have been fantastic! We have had a painter in to paint all our downstairs doors and two more guys in to fix a crack in the front porch. They have all been so friendly and hard working.

What is the difference between interior decorator and interior designer?

An interior designer is all about making a space look amazing with the bigger picture in mind –colour scheme, furniture, and how the space can best be used, including layout, flow and safety. Interior decorators? They’re the ones who bring the design of a room to fruition with the aesthetic implementation of colours with paint, wallpapering and decorative elements.

What is the best order to paint a room?

When painting a room, it’s important to follow a systematic approach for optimal results. We’d recommend painting the ceiling first to prevent any accidental drips or splatters on the freshly painted walls. Using a roller on an extension pole will help provide efficient coverage. After the ceiling has dried, move on to painting the walls using a roller for the main areas and a brush for corners and details. Once the interior walls are dry, shift your focus to the finer details by painting the baseboards, window frames, door frames, and other trim using a smaller precision brush.

Ways to modernise your home with paint?

Ever thought about how a simple tin of paint, a brush and a roller can refresh a room you’ve been neglecting? Here are a few ways you can modernise your home interior with a splash of paint:

  • Utilising Dark/Rich Hues – Invest in your space with deep, rich colours like navy blue and forest green. An accent wall or room painted in these hues can add a cosiness that provides a modern touch. The contrast with other elements in the room will create depth, transforming it into a stylish and contemporary space.
  • Two Tone and Bold Accent Walls – Incorporating a two-tone colour scheme or a bold accent wall is an innovative approach to modernise and add some personality to your room. Choose complementary or contrasting colours to highlight specific areas, such as a striking backdrop for a focal point like a fireplace or a piece of artwork. This technique adds an element of style, instantly revitalising the room’s overall appearance.
  • Tonal Wall Decor & Furniture Painting – Enhance your interior design by extending your paint transformation to wall decor and furniture. Painting shelves, bookcases, or built-in units in the same colour as the walls creates a seamless, integrated look. Similarly, refreshing old or mismatched furniture with a consistent paint colour will bring together various design elements for a modern look.

How to paint interior doors?

Similar to painting interior walls, first gather your supplies and paint (opt for semi-gloss or gloss finish). Things to remember include brushes, mini rollers, painter’s tape, drop cloths, sandpaper, a screwdriver, a doorstop, and of course, your paint of choice. Begin by removing the door from its hinges, placing it on a stable surface, and protecting the area with drop cloths. Clean and lightly sand the door, remove or tape off hardware, and consider priming if needed. Paint the edges and any grooves on the door with a brush, then use a mini roller for the flat areas, following the wood grain. Let the first coat dry, apply a second coat if necessary, and reattach hardware. Finally, rehang the door and inspect for touch-ups.
