Decorated a large bedroom in listed New Town property. Exceptional attention to detail in preparing all surfaces (walls, ceiling, cornicing, skirting boards, shutters and architraves) and finishing between coats to deliver a first class product.

This was the third time we have employed IE Decor (Iain) and we will use Iain again. I have no reservations in offering my recommendation, if a high quality finish is what you are after then IE Decor can deliver it.

We employed Iain to redecorate the hall, stairs and landing in our house. This was not a simple job and involved working at height and painting awkward windows. Iain did a first class job with thorough preparation and meticulous attention to detail elevating his work over that of more run of the mill tradesmen.
I would not hesitate to use him again or to give him my recommendation.

Iain did all the internal decorating pretty much throughout our house - both painting & wallpapering. I have to say it took a long time to get through it all, but that is essentially because Iain is a perfectionist, and this shows in his work.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Iain, as the results show clearly what a terrific job he has done.

Absolutely excellent. Iain went above and beyond for both contracted projects. Personable, reliable and very skilled workmanship. Very competitively priced too. Would not hesitate to organise further work. Thanks again!

Well where does one start: Ian recently painted my entire flat and the job he has done on my flat is perfect. He has for the first time since 2015 allowed me to call it my home. Ian was one of the most punctual and respectable people I've meet. 200% professional in every aspect of his work, a man that clearly takes pride in his workmanship and himself. Felt at ease from the get go having serious mental health problems, and I can honestly say I've never handed over the keys to my now new beautiful home as I did with Ian in a minute. Ian's a truly great guy and tradesman so it's six well earned stars from me.

Ian worked Saturday and Sunday to fit our job, great service and for less than a lot of other quotes we obtained. Would highly recommend.

I was recommended Iain from someone within the Trades and was so pleased he was. Iain was excellent. Stayed in touch and kept me up to date with everything that he was doing. He finished the job efficiently and was a lovely to presence to have around the place whilst he worked. Super happy with the work that he did and would definitely recommend him.

Iain prepared and painted a bedroom for us, including painting a fireplace that was previously stripped. His meticulous approach, particularly with regards to preparing the walls, meant that we were very happy with the end result. The price was also very reasonable. Would highly recommend.

We booked IE Decor to paint and paper our hall and we could not be any happier with the finished product, finished to a very high standard and left no mess once he was done.

The guy clearly takes pride in his work and went above and beyond our expectations. He tidied up a wall my partner had badly painted and even took the time to caulk the skirtings.

I will definitely use again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.

Top boy Top job

Ian & Bryan were very thorough , and explained everything in minute detail, the work that they undertook on my property in Cramond. The attention to detail was first class and the walls , fixings and skirtings were beautifully finished . I was really delighted with the finished article . And anyone needing a top end job would use the services of this talented Duo. Many thanks..

I would highly recommend IE Decor. We had the pleasure of having Brian as our tradesman; he was professional, tidy, friendly. We have a Georgian house and the painting required extensive expertise. Resulting in an immaculate finish to our home. The hall especially has been completely overhauled as well as repairs to the ceiling of the spare bedroom.

Worked in property since I was a teenager and Iain's work is the best we've ever seen.

We just completed a massive renovation on a gorgeous flat in Stockbridge, the wood work was left in a complete state by the joiner, and the plasterer left a terrible finish (sorry guys) but Iain has literally transformed the place. Very strong attention to detail and fantastic customer service, he really cares about the end product and he was very respecting of our property. He managed the job around us coming and going with a baby and the job went off without a hitch.

I'd always recommend Iain, however you'll be lucky to get him, he's very busy and for good reason.

I had my front room redecorated by IE Decor. Iain visited to give me a quote and to talk through the job; he had a really clear idea of what to do to get the best result. Like lots of Edinburgh properties, it's an old house and the walls and ceiling needed a lot of preparation work. Iain and Brian carried out the work; they obviously have a lot of pride in their work and set themselves very high standards. They both worked really hard and were always professional, friendly and polite. The quality of their work from preparation through to finish is excellent and the room looks a hundred times better.

Our business contracted IE Decor to re-varnish & weather-proof our building's external wooden doors' panelling. The owner Iain Elphinstone was prompt and professional in his dealing with our quotation and works request, and we appreciated his finding time in his schedule to get this external work done before Autumn. His team did a great job on the woodwork. They were on-time, professional and thorough in their approach, and pleasant to deal with. They even took care to lay down protective coverings onto the road/pavement outside the office. Happy to recommend.

I E Decor carried out decorating work to the exterior of our house and this
was all done to a very high standard. In particular, the window frames
needed a lot of prep before they could be painted as they were in such
a bad way. However, Brian was more than equal to the task and they are
now looking great again. Iain also assisted with the work and both guys
really take a pride in what they do. I would certainly recommend them for the high quality of their work and also because they were tidy and reliable at
all times.

Ian is a meticulous worker and takes a real pride in his work, therefore the quality of his work is amazing.

Brian and Ian worked on our period property over a number of months and painted most rooms and the hallway. They ended up stripping back wallpaper in the hallway that we suspect had been there since the 1890s. No small task! They were careful with the period features, making the most of them and recapturing features which had been lost by previous work.

I would have no hesitation in recommending IE Decor to anyone else and no hesitation in using them again.

We had Brian and Iain in to strip wallpaper, plaster and paint our dining room. We also had them wallpaper a cupboard which we hadn’t asked for before the job started but they were happy to squeeze it in.

The walls, skirting and cornices were in poor condition. We also have an alcove in the room which is a really awkward space to get into. Brian done an excellent job of all aspects of the work and the attention to detail was exceptional.

Brian and Iain worked quietly and efficiently, keeping our home as clean as possible at all times.

Both of them were a pleasure to have around and we’ll definitely be returning to them for any future painting/decorating jobs we need done going forward.

We had a new kitchen fitted and old tiles removed etc and Brian did a superb job of repainting all the walls and skirtings and ceiling including a feature wall. I have no hesitation recommending Iain and Brian and they did a superb and professional job including getting the paint supplier to rectify an error in the paint colour for the feature wall having already applied the first coat - this was done at no extra cost to ourselves.

I had three rooms painted, including ceilings and woodwork. Brian and Iain were very efficient and have done a highly professional job.
Iain responded quickly to all my enquiries.
Brian arrived at an agreed time and worked quietly, neatly and considerately.
I am delighted with the completed work.
