DECORATION & FINISHES

The word 'Upholstery' comes from the middle English words 'Up' and ' Holden' meaning to 'Hold up'.

Steve and/or Philippa from This Old House can hang wallpaper for you! Preparing the surface prior to hanging any wallpaper is as important as hanging the paper itself – so why take that risk?

There are so many papers on the market; they are not all the same. Do you feel comfortable stripping your own room and hanging new wallpaper? What would you do if the paint or plaster came away with the wallpaper? Or what would you do if you found mould or damp on the bare walls?

The appearance of wallpaper is second to none when correctly hung, can give years of pleasure to your home or business.

Would you remove your radiators, or have you even thought about this? Steve & Philippa are fully conversant with hanging all types of wallpapers from traditional to modern, some of which include:

  • Vinyl's
  • Linens
  • Silks
  • Hand prints
