Careful restoration of old and listed buildings

Tastefully done.

When working with old and listed buildings the maximum amount of care and consideration for existing features has to be taken.

From flaky walls to soft wooden beams, rickety floors to rotten windows we undertake all aspects of repair, refurbishment and redecoration using sympathetic materials and toning colours to match the character of the property.

Here’s some photo’s of a recent project, we are very proud of the end result and the clients are delighted!

Beautiful Beams

Beautiful Beams

We were lucky enough to be invited to work at a wonderful house full of beautiful beams – why would you want to change them we hear you ask?

Rather than ‘changing’ them, we’ve enhanced them!

Using our favourite Farrow & Ball paint range choosing a sympathetic grey eggshell paint for the beams, edged with an acrylic white eggshell for the window frames and skirting and finished with a coat of ‘blackened’ on the walls.

We love it, the client loves it – what do you think?

Plain & Simple

Sometimes all you need is magnolia!

Yep, we all see the many variants of paints, textures, colours etc but maybe it’s a simple as a refresh with good old magnolia?

Don’t think of this as boring – see it as a blank canvas, one that can be added to with other accessories for example.

Painting an all over colour is simple and cost effective giving you time to plan your look and it’s remarkable what a difference it can make to your home – transforming dingy, dirty walls into a clean, fresh and bright surface to adorn – or not.

Bathrooms at their best

Beautiful Bathrooms

With all the modern technology available now, yes, I know, we love our  spray-painting – some of the best finishes are those done with painstaking care, especially when it comes to the older properties.

Uneven walls, small spaces, haven’t been decorated for years, you know the sort!

 

We were delighted to be commissioned to work in a beautiful old cottage recently, the bathroom was in urgent need of a complete facelift – and boy, did it get it!!!

With a new suite having been installed it was even more important that everything was carefully prepared including the tedious (but necessary) task of covering everything up.

With the bathroom furniture wrapped up tight the decorating could begin.

Using a warm beige paint, especially mixed for bathrooms (of course), the walls and woodwork were cleaned and sanded before being hand-painted with the greatest of care.

I’m sure you’ll agree from the pictures that it’s another ‘job well done’ by K&R Decorators!
