Here is a selection of the comments we’ve received about our work.
Exterior redecoration of a four bedroom house
“I have had two separate jobs done by Trim – one interior, one exterior – in the last year. Both ended up being rather more complicated than first envisaged because of problems with my elderly house. But both were completed by Graeme and David with superb professionalism. From the estimate to the invoice, everything is done with care, thought and real craftsmanship. They are so much more than decorators; the quality of their work leaves other, similar firms in the shade. I would recommend them, and let them loose on my house again, in a heartbeart.”

Redecoration of a two-bedroom flat
“Thanks a million for all the work, care, attention to detail, imagination and personal touches you put on our place. It was such a relief to put the project in your hands while we were not even in the country.
Your approach is on another level to any other renovations/decorators we have ever come across — intellectual, problem solving, intuitive, attentive, and human.
I knew as soon as I met you that you were the only ones I wanted to work with but the service you provided exceeded my expectations. We appreciate it so much, would love to use you in the future and are recommending you far and wide.”

Redecoration of a two-bedroom flat
“Very good job done and amazing customer service.
We never had such a good organization in a project. Also their prompt and efficient communication via email is really a peace of mind.
Quality of the job is very high and they finish on time as planned. Thanks so much!!”
Elena and Iljaas – Belsize Park, NW3
Redecoration of hall, stairs and lounge
“Trim Decorating provide impressive service and workmanship. In the autumn of 2016, the team redecorated a lounge, hallway, very deep stairwell and landing to an outstanding finish and really transformed these interiors.
The preparation that went into achieving this was extremely thorough (sanding, repairing and making good areas of a wall inside an airing cupboard where a hot water tank had been removed,for example). David, in particular, worked hard and carefully with lots of attention to detail. Graeme also goes the extra mile in terms of help, advice and customer care.”
Paula – Herne Hill, SE24
Redecoration of two bedrooms
“We are very happy with the work, the children’s bedrooms look great. David and Shane were extremely helpful and hardworking and managed to remove all the things nailed to the wall without any scars.
Luke also loves the colour of his new wardrobes and frequently tells us it is his favourite! We would be happy to recommend you and the team.”
Emma – Fulham, SW6
Redecoration of front door and porch masonry
“Thank you both very much for all the care and attention you paid to the work. David, it was a pleasure meeting you and your work is outstanding.
All your business cards have been handed out to friends who are impressed with my splendidly shiny blue door. All the best to you both and I look forward to contacting you again when it’s time to embark on further redecoration.”

Interior and exterior restoration and redecoration of all windows and doors in a 4-bed house
“Thank you so much for doing such a fine thorough job at Carver Road. You and your colleagues have been exemplary. If you ever need a reference from me, or just a rave quote, please ask.”
Rosemary – Herne Hill, SE24
Redecoration of a 2-bedroom flat
“The best decorating and refurbishment I have ever come across. They have replaced all our windows, redecorated most of the flat to a very high standard (transformed the place, really) and done odd jobs around the house.
I’m positive their work will have added way more in value to our place than it cost to do! We keep going back to them because their work is so high quality, they do what they say they’re going to do, keep you updated all the time, all their staff are a total pleasure to work with and they regularly go above and beyond.
Can’t recommend Trim enough!”
Matt – Herne Hill, SE24
Redecoration of a living room, dining room, hallway and bathroom
“The flat looks great and I am really pleased with the result. David and Shane were very professional and I appreciated them being there on time, keeping me updated on what was happening and getting the work done on schedule.
Hope this helps and thank you for a job well done. I would definitely recommend your company to others. The work was so good that my carpets and curtains now look very tired…but that’s another story! “
Ruth – Brockley, SE4
Redecoration of hallway, sitting room, two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom
“At the end of 2013 I was very lucky to find out about Trim Decorating when searching for a firm to do some work on my flat in Herne Hill. I needed an extensive refurbishment following a long period of tenancy.
On the first appointment, Graeme and I went through the whole apartment and he suggested improvements that were spot on; the quote was extremely reasonable and on budget.
The end result has exceeded all my expectations. I live overseas, a fact which didn’t deter Graeme at all — this seemed to me to demonstrate a level of trust that I wouldn’t have expected to find in a typical renovations firm.
Most subsequent contact was via email or phone. Graeme and James maintained constant contact during the renovation process, sending regular updates, prices and samples as needed.
On a brief trip back to the UK towards the end of the work I met James, who had been doing a lot of the work, and couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised. James did so much more than what was in the original remit — for example, collecting from the shop and then hanging curtains that I’d ordered but didn’t have time to do myself before flying back home.
Suffice it to say, their after-sales service is impressive. Most of all, for me, Graeme and James are personable, honest and charming men, far removed from the negative stereotypes which tend to go with the industry.
I can’t express how grateful I am for their willingness to go above and beyond. Throughout the process they were professional and completely trustworthy.
I will certainly be using Trim again in the future & wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”
Andrew – Herne Hill, SE24
Redecoration of a sitting room
“This is just to say that David did a splendid job on my front room — beautifully painted and no mess.
The only thing is that the hall and stairs now look rather tired and shabby…”
Sarah – Herne Hill, SE24
Redecoration of two bedrooms
“Trim Decorating and Graeme Semple are a pleasure to work with. I always come back to them for work I need doing to my house, because they are punctual, reliable, clean and submit email quotes and invoices.
They are extremely professional and dealing with them is a cut above the experiences I’ve had with other building firms. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.”
Katie – Herne Hill, SE24
Redecoration of hallway, bedroom and sitting room
“I’ve been extremely pleased with my experience of working with Graeme and Jim. I liked their thorough and inquisitive approach to inspecting the work to be undertaken. They took the trouble to really review and understand what was required. I also liked the full quotation which was provided — it outlined the work process and gave me a good understanding of where my money would go.
When it came to project management, I very much appreciated Jim’s professionalism, reliability, great communication and unfailing cheerful humour. I also really valued his can-do approach and that he went out of his way to complete other small tasks that were not strictly part of the project, but which were extremely helpful to me.
He made what could have been quite a major and disruptive project very painless. For these reasons, although the quotation was the highest of those I received, I felt that it was really good value for money.”
Laura – Herne Hill, SE24
Redecoration of two bedrooms
“Graeme provided a timely and competitive quote and fitted the work in around our schedules.
Our decorator was professional and respectful of the disruption to the household. He did a quality job, paying attention to detail and completing to a high standard. I would recommend Graeme and his team to friends.”
Claire – Herne Hill, SE24
Redecoration of sash windows, masonry, French doors and interior walls
“Thank you for the work you have done on our property, it couldn’t have been easier from our side and a great finish on all the areas. Thank you again, we will be sure to give you a call in the future for the next part of the flat refurb.”
Louise & Lee – North Dulwich, SE24
Decoration of a new hairdressing salon in East Dulwich
“Graeme and James headed up the internal and external decoration for our new hairdressing salon in East Dulwich. I had worked with them previously and it really gave me peace of mind from the outset to know they were involved in our new project.
Working with them is a pleasure from beginning to end. They made every effort to fit our work in (despite its last minute nature), provided an extensively detailed quotation (as always) and began on time (despite their many other projects).
Both Graeme and James got on extremely well with other tradesmen working alongside them, making the site not only a pleasant place to be but somewhere you were confident there was collaboration.
On this project, the builder preceding Graeme and James let me down badly and I was hugely relieved with the significant effort that they made to rectify the bad workmanship — going way beyond the call of duty. They both seem to have a real understanding of the unique constraints and pressures of a commercial project, and as a result of their effort we opened on time. This really sums up how I feel about working with Trim Decorating — they are painstaking in their efforts to assist their clients. I wouldn’t work with anyone else.”
Katya – East Dulwich, SE22
Redecoration of a staircase, landing and sitting room
“Trim Decorating have worked on a few small projects for me and I was very satisfied with their work. I have asked them again to do more work for me. I highly recommend their friendly services.”
