Don’t hang about, hire a wallpapering decorating expert

September 16, 2019

Unlike other technical trades, wallpapering decorating is something people often try to do themselves. Our wallpapering specialist Morley Lane of M J Lane Decorating Services explains, it is obvious when wallpapering has been done professionally.

Decorating with wallpaper can be rather hard and stressful, even for a professional, especially if it features a chimney breast, shelving or you’re dealing with a double-height wall along the staircase. Sometimes it may look simple, but when it comes to getting around plug sockets, for example, it’s harder in new builds than in old houses. Something you may not know as a DIY-er.

Morely Lane explains why you should always hire a wallpapering decorating professional

On behalf of Morley, we’d like to thank Brewers Decorator Centres, the UK’s largest independent decorator’s merchant, for supplying the wallpaper used within this video. Brewers stock an unrivalled range of the trade paints and supplies you use every day, along with all the designer colours and wallpapers your clients ask you for. For more information click here.

How to find a professional wallpaper decorator

For a seamless result, it is worth searching for a local tradesperson who can put up your wallpaper to a professional standard. When searching for your tradesman on Checkatrade you are allowed to see previous work as well, which will provide you with further confidence that your home is in safe and experienced hands, and the job will not only look amazing but last too.

“The foundation of my business has always been customer service and Checkatrade lets customers know, before they invite me in, of my reputation,” says Morley. That reputation is essential and highly protected by a tradesman, so you can rest assured they will put all their efforts into your home project and into making you feel as confident and comfortable as possible.

If a tradesperson is well respected, you can expect to wait for availability, but the wait will be well worth it.
