Malcolm and his team helped turning a flat into my home. Malcolm and his team are absolutely fantastic from the first phone call to arrange an appointment for a quote through the actual work to delivering the renovated flat. The whole team was very reliable, with excellent communication throughout, and their workmanship is second to none. When any unexpected issues arise, Malcolm communicated them to me efficiently and was able to call in other trades to rectify the issues without delay. I will definitely call Malcolm and his team for future projects and have already recommended them to my family and friends.

Malcolm and his team decorated two rooms and built wardrobes, removed and reconnected radiators. Their work is of a really high standard, they are tidy, clean, polite and work really hard. They turn up in time and finish when they say, which made it really easy for me to plan other things like deliveries of wardrobes and carpet fitting.

Malcolm also communicates all the time about what’s happening and when.

A superb team, incredibly professional and brilliantly managed. I’m really grateful and will be using Malcolm again later this year and have no hesitation in recommending his business to anyone!

The outside of our house was painted - a mix of surfaces including pipes, gutters, doors, iron gates, timber cladding and rendered panels - as well as a clean -up of plastic fascia panels. Overall an excellent job. The painter, Craig, was methodical and thorough and did the work without mess or any inconvenience to us. The quality of the work was very high.

Got the woodwork in the bay window of our living room painted as well as a smaller window area in a bedroom. Malcolm was prompt in replying to our query, friendly in person and gave a thorough quote for the work. He was great at communicating throughout, and the painter doing the job was always polite and on time. Very happy with the finished product and would use their services again.

Malcolm and his team wallpapered one of my walls for me - I'd bought wallpaper which was a map and I was too nervous to put it up myself.

They did a great job of preparing the newly plastered wall to ensure it was totally smooth, then putting up the wallpaper the following day.

They were friendly, efficient and very tidy and did a great job of putting up the paper. I absolutely love it.

Malcolm and his team were fabulous. This was the re decoration of a whole house. We had daily updates and a very personal approach from Malcolm. He walked us through every stage and even did extra work beyond the original brief. The painter who worked on each room was great and always tidied up. Our house was transformed into exactly what we wanted.

This is the third time that I have used this company, and once again they have done a fantastic job, what was particularly helpful for me was that Malcolm Bell organised for the work to be carried out while I was on holiday, meaning that I came back home to find everything we had discussed done and dusted. If you’re looking for a professional friendly company,look no further.

This is the second time we have used Malcolm Bell Decorators and we could not be happier with the results.The first time was a bedroom and we have just had our hall, stairs and landing decorated and hope to use them again in the future.Their attention to detail is impressive and they will take whatever time is required to get the best possible finish.I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone interested in their services.

Malcolm's very professional and tidy team of decorators repapered our large hall ceiling as well as renewing eggshell on hall woodwork. The team were prompt and hard working and the work was carried out to an excellent quality. Malcolm kept a peronal overview of the work's progress which was much appreciated. We would be more than happy to recommend their work to others.

Malcolm and his team have done an utterly brilliant job in redecorating our 4 bed flat. They have been thoughtful, clean and tidy, and have excellent attention to detail. The service and communication has been great at all times. They have been incredibly helpful in quickly and expertly resolving little issues that cropped up, and have been really flexible throughout. I couldn't recommend Malcolm enough for anyone looking for decorating work, and will definitely be calling him if we ever need work done in the future. Thank you Malcolm and team!

Malcolm came up trumps at short notice when I was let down by another firm. The team were excellent and did a brilliant job of painting and papering. They were professional, friendly and very tidy. Will definitely use them again.

As a return customer of Malcolm Bell and his team,we once again found them to be reliable,unobtrusive,polite and friendly.The walls were meticulously prepared before papering. There was minimal mess and when the room was completed it was the best finish we have seen from any previous decorators. We will be happy to use them again.

Second time using Malcolm and his team.This time to hand paint kitchen units, and what a result!

This was to convert a very drab dark green unit kitchen, for elderly parents. Replacing kitchen, or doors was out of the question, and budget. Asked Malcolm if painting units was something he had experience of? I was relieved when he said yes! Not only units were painted, but the tiles also, bringing the kitchen back up to date with a more modern feel.

The results are incredible! The smile on my parents face is enough. The transformation for drab to clean and bright outstanding! I only wish I had taken before pictures.

Malcolm and his team are my go to decorators now. The next job is already lined up. So pleased to have found such a fantastic company, one that genuinely cares about their work.

I have no hesitation in absolutely recommending Malcolm and the team. They have just completed the exterior painting of our block of flats and just prior to Christmas, they put up insulating wall paper and decorated the interior of our flat. Both jobs have been done to an exceptionally high standard and we are more than happy with the results.
Malcolm doesn't hesitate to take into account all requests and communication is maintained through all stages of the work.

They are professional, hard working, tidy and very, very thorough.

I would completely agree with the other reviews on this site which call out how reliable, professional, trustworthy, hard working, and excellent at communicating malcolm and his guys are.

Malcolm was recommended to me by the main contractor who carried out structural work to a large first floor georgian conversion that I own. The final finish achieved - the flat was completely repainted including walls/ceilings, large sash/case windows and woodwork, original plaster cornices resprayed, cloakroom toilet wallpapered, communal areas of the building freshened up - is outstanding.

Malcolm provided great advice on paint finishes and was always approachable and contactable.

Easily the best painter/decorating service I have ever used.

Absolutely fantastic service from quote right through to the completion of the job. We are an independent gift shop called Bonkers, located on Hanover Street. The job required all the interior of the shop to be repainted. We were thrilled that all the paints used were eco friendly in keeping with our business ethos and also had the additional benefits of being hard wearing,able to be washed and left no smell which for a gift shop was very important. Malcolm sourced these products for us and his knowledge and experience is exceptional. Malcolm is the consummate professional keeping me completely informed of how the job was progressing on a daily basis which was very useful as I am based in St Andrews not Edinburgh. The attention to detail was meticulous and the finish is of a very high standard. Malcolm worked round our opening hours so we did not have to close - even for an hour- coming in when we were closed for the day. I can recommend Malcolm 100% and will definitely will have him back for any decorating jobs in the future.

I found Malcolm via Trusted Trader and would like to say that his team did a fantastic job on my new home. As my wife is expecting soon, Malcolm did his utmost to get a detailed competitive quote to us asap and then start the job quickly. The guys were first class throughout what was a 3 week job and were always easy to communicate on any unforeseen work that came up (such as additional tiling and plastering required) and the progress of the job. The final finish on my walls was excellent and has completely transformed what was a pretty well worn home. I will recommend Malcolm to friends and family and certainly use his service again in the future.
