I had some major re-decorating done in my hair salon earlier this year. The whole salon was to be painted and several walls wallpapered. The team did a fantastic job on all aspects of the work and the finishing was excellent. They worked to a great schedule and got all the work done in just a few days! We are very happy with the outcome - it was done to a very high standard for a very reasonable price. The team gave very helpful input and advice and were very friendly.

I am very happy to provide a letter of recommendation for N.S. Decorating. Having recently moved to the area I had to take the chance of selecting a decorator from the local magazine, The Oracle, and I am happy to say that the choice that I made proved to be a very good one. 

They are very professional in their work and I was very satisfied with the finished result. When I first contacted them they were quick to respond and emailed a quote within a week. I felt confident enough to leave them with a key while they carried out the work on my lounge and main bedroom, and pleased to find that they did a clean job, clearing up each evening. They were willing to listen to my ideas but also contributed their own, which meant that the beams in the downstairs rooms have been stained and their appearance really enhanced, which I would not have thought of without their input. Once these rooms were complete I asked them to come back and do the kitchen, hall and stairs which had similar challenges in terms of beams and wood that had had a horrible orange stain put on it years ago. I am very pleased with the finished result which has a very professional finish and has transformed my home. 

Finally, I would like to confirm that they are hard-working, friendly and professional people who take pride in their work, so much so that they offered to return to put a final coat on the wood work as they (rather than me) felt that it needed it.

We used the services of N.S.Decorating in 2013. Their service from quotation to actually carrying out the painting was impeccable. They communicated often and turned up at the times they said they would.

Their work was of an extremely high standard and they listened and went out of their way to achieve the colour and results we wanted.

I would without a doubt use them again for any decorating requirements we have in the future.

Nick and Mark carried out a job for me last year which, through no fault of theirs, turned out to be very complicated and lengthy.  Whereas some tradesmen may have given up and abandoned the job, Nick and Mark were determined to overcome the difficulties and worked hard to find solutions to the various problems that arose. They were experienced and professional and, most importantly for me, friendly, likeable and honest. I had no hesitation in leaving a key for them to work in the house when I wasn’t there.

I was looking for a local decorator and found NS Decorating Services advertised in The Oracle. I emailed Nick Shane one evening in October last year and was really surprised and pleased to get a response back almost straightaway.  I have had a few bad experiences with decorators in the past either not replying to call or not actually turning up to do the work.

Nick came round the following evening to see what I needed doing and sent me a quote within the week. I accepted the quote as I thought it was a fair price for the work I had asked him to do.

Nick painted and papered my lounge and put up coving. He also painted and papered the bedroom, en-suite, landing, stairs, bathroom, hall and toilet.

As an Interior Designer I was looking for a quality job. I was very pleased with the work and especially the wallpaper hanging as I cannot see any joins! Nick was reliable, trustworthy and a pleasure to have around. I was perfectly happy to have him in the house while I was at work.

I would definitely recommend NS Decorating Services and they will be my first choice for any work I need doing in the future.

I saw an advert in the Silsoe news regarding Nick Shane Decorating service and decided to give them a try.  I am very pleased with the decorating and found Nick to be professional and trustworthy I was happy to go out and leave him to get on with the work,
