Hello, I am an interior painter & decorator in Brighton & Hove and have 18 years experience. I have lived in Brighton for almost 20 years.
I specialise in, natural and bespoke paints but am not averse to using Dulux or any other leading brands. I personally prefer the finish of natural paints which don’t look like plastic thanks to the inclusion of natural materials such as clay, chalk and marble.
I use paints with a lower environmental impact, not primarily out of concern for the environment but simply because they are better! The fact they have a lower environmental impact is just a nice bonus.
As a decorator, I take a holistic approach to decorating. What is often overlooked is what the property needs; it needs to move and breathe. Many modern conventional paints trap moisture into the surface, this can then cause damage such as wet rot and blown plaster. If moisture needs to move let it, if air needs to flow let it.
It’s interesting to think that typical masonry paint is guaranteed for up to 15 years but a cave painting can last over 10,000 years!
As mentioned I’m an interior decorator but I will also do new build exteriors. I mainly work for private customers.
I stick to what I know; I'm not a handyman and my tiling is awful! For larger jobs I can work with other quality painters & decorators to speed things along.
