Total Overall Maintenance Services was established by Tom Kelly in 2006. The company was later streamlined and rebranded as Total Decorating in order for Tom to focus on his speciality; providing beautiful decorative finishes. There’s nothing more satisfying than turning a dull room into an attractive space with a feature wall or a striking colour.

At Total Decorating we aim to maintain a reputable brand which offers quality, promotes trust and provides excellent customer service. We strive to provide efficient and precise workmanship with a top quality finish on budget and on schedule. Our quotes are free and have no obligation, the prices will always be reasonable whilst including the use of the best materials and guaranteeing a beautiful end result.

During our many years of experience we have developed a wide range of decorating skills. With this knowledge and ability we can complete any decorating project with confidence; from a single room to a commercial space. We have enjoyed working with clients such as Tai Hair and Beauty and Apollo Tanning and Beauty to achieve the high end look they required to ensure their business space was inviting and attractive to customers. We are lucky to have had the privilege of working on some truly stunning homes and took great pleasure in providing the customers with the finish they desired in keeping with the elegance and style of the building.

There is more to our job than just decorating; we believe it is equally important that the customer feels comfortable inviting us into their home and trusts that we will carry out the work in line with their requirements. We want our customers to recommend us to their friends and return to us when they require more work completing. We are proud to hold a feedback score of 9.9/10 on Checkatrade which we feel reflects our strong work ethic.

Total decorating provides services for both domestic and commercial customers. We offer a variety of services, including plastering, wallpapering, painting, coving and minor carpentry repairs, we can also arrange scaffolding if the job dictates. We encourage our customers to consider eco friendly products for their project, we know from experience that you can use them without compromising on the finish. Whether it be internally or externally there are many fume free paints available offering a range of finishes and are suitable for use on many different surfaces.

We are fully insured for public liability (for loss or damage up to 1 million)
