  • Paul and his team are just fantastic. Since we moved into our house in June they have completed our hall, stairs and landing and our lounge. Their work is immaculate and they are all so professional. Also just lovely guys to have working in your house. We can’t recommend them enough and wouldn’t use anyone else.

    Always great work! Couldn’t ask for more

    Paul has now completed 2 rooms for me, a utility which involved using a specialist paint as the walls had been replastered with lime plaster and my son's bedroom whilst we were on holiday. His level of communication is 100% and he takes his quality of work seriously. He wants you to be 100% happy and prides himself on achieving the best result. I had no concerns leaving him house keys and liasing with the curtain fitter. We arrived home to a bedroom totally decorated and all that was left to do was to make the bed. Perfect in every way. Watch this space for the rooms we will be asking Paul to do next for us. Thanks Paul

  • We used Paul Smith Decorators for our bedroom. The work is exceptional and very thorough. Paul always leaves things tidy and nothing was too much trouble. Always cleared up after himself. Would definitely use again.

    Exceptional Service.... I would highly recommend the company, although I received cheaper quotes, I was reassured by the detailed time Paul took in pricing the job and the quote he provided. Justin arrived on time and was friendly and helpful. The quality of his work was to a high standard and the finish 100% professional. I'd have no hesitation in getting them back again for other projects.

    Justin is a super decorator and leaves everything immaculate. Both he and Paul are so friendly and approachable and we were so grateful everything was finished to time in order to fit in with other work.

    Claire Smith Avatar Claire Smith

    Extremely happy with the service we received from Paul and the team. The job was interrupted due to our family getting covid, so it ended up taking a little longer as some bits needed re-doing. Paul was really flexible and understanding. Jamie did a great job, was polite and just cracked on with the work - we hardly knew he was there. After the painting had been finished, a damp patch was visible on one of the walls. Paul checked with the plasterer to see if he'd noticed anything whilst doing his work. He then came back and put stain block on the wall and repainted it. Really happy with the service and will definitely use again next time we need any work doing πŸ˜€

    Paul Smith Decorators recently painted our hall, stairs and landing and living room. We are very pleased with the results. The work was carried out professionally and politely and within the timescale that was estimated.

    Joan Strong Avatar Joan Strong

    Paul provided a reasonable quote, worked to schedule (accommodating our availability), did excellent work, and left the house clean. When problems arose (not because of his work!), he visited us again at no charge to ensure that the work was done to our and his standards. He's one of the finest tradesmen in York that we've had the pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend him enough.

    Sarah Hare Avatar Sarah Hare

    Having work with PSD on various projects over the years, I could not rate him highly enough. The last job was complex and needed significant planning in order to paint 167 bathrooms at the Leeds Marriott hotel. This job was done on time without any issues to a high standard. their flexible approach and helpful team places them above the competition.

  • Paul and his team were at our house for 8 days and transformed it from top to bottom. Excellent work, minimal distribution and a great group of professionals. We have used Paul and his team before and won’t hesitate to again. Thank you so much for making our house a home.

    Jodie Roberts Avatar Jodie Roberts

    Over the past few years Paul has done work both for me in my house, and for my elderly Mother in hers. He and his team have always done a great job for us. Recently they completed several rooms including a tricky hall, stairs and landing in my Mum’s house, and worked long hours so that she was able to be out of the house for the minimum of time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. 🀩

    Debbie Long Avatar Debbie Long

    So pleased with the job on my spare room. The attention to detail is fantastic. It looks completely new. Everything was completed on time and they were courteous and polite. I will definitely be using them again.

  • We highly recommend Paul Smith Decorators. They redecorated the majority of our house last week. Firstly Paul took time and care to ensure we had the colours and finishes that were exactly what we wanted despite not knowing exactly ourselves. Then the team all took great care to cause the least disruption. They were very professional - punctual, polite, respectful of property and accommodating adjustments to the detail when requested without fuss. Their work is meticulous and it shows in the end result which is more than excellent. We don’t hesitate to highly recommend Paul and his team. Thankyou Paul for what feels like a new home!

    Rex Lees Avatar Rex Lees

    Firstly very reasonable quote and final invoice exactly as quoted, no sneaky bits added. Paul was very helpful with suggestions when I was a bit undecided and did a fantastic job on my feature wall as I had the paper put up horizontally, not the usual vertical. Must also mention Sam who did most of the painting, lovely young man. All in all they were very good and I will no hesitation in recommending the company. Brilliant job and brilliant price.

    Anne Wood Avatar Anne Wood

    Paul did an amazing job of redecorating our front door and canopy which was long overdue! Great attention to detail going above and beyond what we expected, even cleaning the front of our gutters, soffits and fascias while he was at it which has really contributed to the overall finish. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Paul!

    Paul and his team have done an impeccable job decorating my 2 bed flat in York.
