Fashionable SW17. A new home for Decorating London.

Forget the uber cool Tooting Broadway Market and super lively Earlsfield nightlife, Decorating London celebrates its 12 year of business as a South West London decorator in 2020 and it’s time to celebrate by getting your living-room done.

Decorating London has always been a South West London decorator.  Its humble beginnings started in Twickenham in 2007 with early contracts locally, in Earlsfield and also West London.  After a brief spell in Canada Water we moved offices to Vauxhall/Stockwell SW8 to consolidate our reputation as a SW London decorator. There we enjoyed 7 very successful years before re-locating to Garratt Lane, SW17 in 2018, where we’re currently located, with Tooting Broadway and Earlsfield station equidistant.

Our mission is quite simply to provide the highest possible standard of plastering and decorating within your home and business, being as in unobtrusive and personable as possible in the process.

With over 12 years experience in London we aim to stand out as the outstanding southwest London painter and decorator.  Whilst 3 of our 5 regular decorators are located locally, the others are North and East London based so we can easily take on contracts there too.  As the name suggests we still cover all London postcodes.

Evolution of working practices:

As a team we continue to improve by introducing the latest materials and methods at the cutting edge of decorating.  In short we aim to be the best south west london decorator available.

2) Small Things – Always remove all the small things from a room. May seem obvious but you’d be surprised… Continue reading
