About Us

Trim Decorating was founded by Graeme Semple in 2012, and is his third successful business. Previously a rather reluctant employee in the corporate world, his experience there nonetheless proved valuable in teaching him about building and maintaining a business. 

When Graeme decided to establish businesses based on his practical skills, he received guidance and inspiration from his dad - Gordon - a gifted electrician, carpenter, builder and renovator who has run his own business since 1980, and from his friend Archie Cunningham, a cabinetmaker and builder blessed with a similarly broad range of abilities.

Graeme had always noted the disciplined and meticulous organisation which meant that his dad’s clients enjoyed such an assured experience - these principles have proved to be remarkably useful in successfully managing a team of skilled painters and decorators in London.

Since David Ramsay joined the business in 2015 - with over a decade of experience of supervising residential and commercial painting and decorating projects — he has overseen Trim's day-to-day operations.

David is joined on site by the rest of the Trim decorators, who are all similarly skilled, hard-working and friendly
