  • Wallpapering a wall

    10Verified Review

    Matt was really good at communicating with us and managed to fit us in quite quickly as it was a small job. He worked very tidily and we are very pleased with the quality of his work. As it was an expensive paper we wanted it hung professionally and are glad we chose Matt.

    Fantastic job completed by MJL decorating. Kitchen looks like new again. The kitchen had a few issues with a bad repair and some water damage. But now all looks perfect. Matt left the place clean and tidy each day. Will definitely use again.

  • Paint the walls, ceiling and woodwork of our Bungalow

    10Verified Review

    Matt thank you, it was a pleasure to do buisness with you. Not only were you extremely proffesional and efficient keeping the bungalow clean and tidy so that we could still live in it whilst you carried out the very extensive work, but your freindliness and willingness to accomodate changes was very much appreciated. Thank you we would certainly reccomend you to others.

  • Sanding and finishing oak worktops, painting oak kitchen cupboards and drawers.

    10Verified Review

    The transformation of my worktop and cupboards from a tired oak kitchen to a beautiful painted finish. The grain of my oak worktop is outstanding and the finish of the cupboards is amazing. It looks like a brand new kitchen at a fraction of the cost.

  • Painting kitchen doors after removal of vinyl wrap

    10Verified Review

    Matt collected the doors and took them away for preparation and painting, He returned them a few days later. The quality of the finish is excellent and, as always, Matt was polite, reliable and enthusiastic about his work.

Company info

Hello and welcome to MJL Decorating Services.

I have 36 years’ experience in the decorating trade, having served a 4-year apprenticeship, gaining City & Guilds qualification in both craft and craft advanced Painting & Decorating and sign work.

Decorating is a passion of mine and gives me a great sense of pride and satisfaction. I have a wide range of experience in every aspects of the trade, and a good knowledge of all trade products, which is key in today's marketplace.

I pride myself on a very high finish, but the service I provide is also very important to me, keeping my clients updated and informed is of paramount importance. I keep the workplace clean and tidy and my hoover is a very important part of my toolbox. 

I believe preparation is the art of all decoration work and use both Mirka & Festool professional sanding machines attached to the Mirka dust extraction sanding unit as much as possible to keep the dust to a bare minim but with excellent preparation results.

Not only have tools changed for the better, materials and paints have changed considerably, I now use a wide range of materials and have been using Benjamin Moore and Tikirula paints for the majority of my work, as I feel these products have a better , longer lasting and a beautiful finish to the eye

Hand painted kitchens and furniture are of particular interest to me, I really enjoy getting a huge amount of job satisfaction from hand painted kitchens & furniture, and highly enjoy the high level of preparation and needed to get the high level finish within these jobs. Almost any kitchen can be painted , so if your kitchen is functional , but you feel it’s looking dated or tired, please do contact us, it will save you thousands of Pounds as its far cheaper to paint your existing kitchen than replacing it . Please see our web page for more details.

Thank you for taking the time to look at MJL Decorating services home page and we look forward to working with you in the near future.
