If youíre thinking of redecorating your home, getting the professionals in can save you time and money, but the question is where do you find a good decorator?

Finding a good decorator or painter isnít just a matter of hiring someone who can do the decorating job, you also want someone who will turn up on time, finish the decorating job when they say they will and not charge you too much for the privilege. Finding one of those can sometimes feel like looking for a needle in a haystack. But here youíll find some top tips on how to find a home decorator.

The first thing to bear in mind is the type of decorating job you need your home decorator to do. Painters and decorators come with a variety of skills, some are just experts with paint and wallpaper, others may have some additional interior design skills so may be able to help you choose accent colours or help you redesign the a whole room from scratch. Of course the cost will depend on the type of job you want the decorator to do so have a clear idea before you ring round.

How much you want the decorator to do will help you give you an idea of the type of decorating businesses you will need to call, for example if itís just one or two rooms in your house then a home decorator will be appropriate, however if you are decorating your 12-roomed house or business premises from scratch then you many need to hire a team of industrial decorators rather than a house decorator.

Once you have an idea of the type of job you need your decorator to do you can go in search of the right one for you. The best way to find a decorator is to ask around and see if you have any friends, work colleagues or family members who can recommend a home decorator. If you know someone who is happy with the work of a local decorator you can be more sure they will do a good job for you.

Another way you can try and find a reliable decorator is to check with the British Decorators Association.
