Excellent and professional on a difficult job
Customer Service
Splash of Colour extensively renovated two large bedrooms in an old house. This was a difficult and complex job from the start with plastering and woodwork to deal with. Other companies had not been prepared to take it on but Splash of colour were confident from the start and exceeded our expectations in all regards. We will be calling them as we continue renovating the house.

Above and beyond
Customer Service
These guys were just what we needed. We bought the house last year and the spare bedrooms needed decorating. We had a feature wall of Laura Ashley wallpaper, with all other walls painted in Farrow & Ball colours. They recommended doing all the ceilings and woodwork which was something we wouldn’t have considered but created a much better final effect. The quote was adhered to. They worked cleanly, were respectful, professional and left a flawless job. Sadly on the last night we were broken into. At such a scary time I couldn’t have been more grateful for these guys. They went above and beyond to fit a lock on the kitchen internal door so that I would feel safe. We will use them again for the rest of the house. Thanks so much.

The end of looking for painter/decorators - for ever.
Customer Service
Splash of Colour redecorated our Victorian-era house over 3 weeks. That included a couple of preliminary visits, a competitive quote and great communication throughout. The job required a huge amount of prep work. A few days were lost due to unpredictable equipment failure. To make up time, the team started early, stayed on late and got more men on the job. Shaun is very much someone who invests himself in what he does and goes the extra mile to make it as good as possible. He sets his own high standard. That kind of professionalism is a rare thing. The team works well together and has a strong work ethic. The attention to detail goes to minimising the disruption. Furniture is moved with care, floors and fittings protected and the house left in as clean a state as practicable at the end of the day. The quality of the work is excellent. We've had painters and decorators do work for us before, each time a bit of a gamble as to whether the people you hire are any good and trustworthy. I can confidently say we no longer need to go hunting . SOC is our go-to firm. It's no surprise that they were finalists in the 2019 Which? Trusted Trader awards. We've already recommended them to colleagues. Interestingly, it was SOC that drew our attention to Which? Trusted Traders. We'd found SOC on another platform, one features much more prominently in the media but without the rigour of the Which? vetting process. Perhaps Which? need to promote their "Trusted Traders" brand more.

Hi Ajit we are really pleased you are happy with our work and thanks you for the fantastic review I did say thats what you get when you use a trusted trader And if you ever need us just call kind regards Shaun mckay
Fantastic high quality finish and would definitely recommend
Customer Service
We had Splash of Colour Contractors come and re-decorate our living room, dining room and daughter's bedroom including re-painting of all walls, ceilings, woodwork, sash windows and cornicing. We are incredibly pleased with the results and the overall finish of all the rooms. They were very hard working throughout their time at our house and it is very obvious how much they care about their work. Shaun's attention to detail is unbelievable and if he isn't happy with something he will stay late to ensure it is perfect. The job did run slightly over time however I feel this is due to the high level of finish which they are striving for and would have no concerns about recommending them to anyone looking for a decorator. They went above and beyond what we were expecting and are looking forward to having them come back to decorate some more of our house in the future.

Would recommend without hesitation
Customer Service
Splash of Colour went above and beyond both in the service they provided and the work itself. They took the time to do a thorough consultation before taking the job, talking through our original colour choices and showing use how they would look compared to alternatives. In the end we went with their colour recommendations and the house looks fantastic. The work itself was impeccable - they're Which recommended for a reason!
