Decorating Services in Reigate | Modernising Period Properties
As members of The Period Property Owners Club, Kent and Sussex Decorators understand the appeal of Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian homes and buildings throughout the Reigate area. With over 20 years of trade and industry experience, our small, friendly team provide time-served decorating services, as well as exterior restoration and sash window restoration expertise, which gently bring these cherished properties into the 21st Century. Like all reputable decorating companies, we do so while retaining the finishes and features that made these homes and buildings unique to start with.
So often with period properties in Reigate, it’s a case of appeal versus practicality. Features such as sash windows, ceiling roses, cast iron fireplaces and ornate cornicing and balustrades are undoubtedly desirable in any home, but if they’ve been allowed to age or degrade, they might not be performing to their maximum functionality.
As one of the most trusted decorating companies operating in Reigate, Kent and Sussex Decorators provide decorating services, exterior restoration work and sash window restoration expertise that not only restore period features, but also align them with contemporary finishes that increase the practicality of such an old building.
Decorating Services That Enhance, Not Overhaul
Some period properties across Reigate are showing their age. From leaking rooves and damaged guttering, to tired exteriors and dated interiors, these properties risk being left behind as museum exhibits rather than practical living or commercial spaces.
As one of Reigate’s most trusted decorating companies, Kent and Sussex Decorators have completed countless exterior restoration projects, complete refits and sash window restoration jobs. Our decorating services are sympathetic to the original era and don’t create jarring results.
There are common areas where period features and modern design can perfectly coexist in properties in Reigate.
Sash Windows – Sash window restoration jobs often form a small part of a larger exterior restoration project. They remain one of Kent and Sussex Decorators’ most popular services, because original sash windows are as important a feature as any in a period property. Originally framed with timber, aged sash windows usually look worse than they actually are. Sash window restoration jobs often easily salvage the original features through timber treatments and waterproofing. Double glazing and draught excluders can be fitted to increase energy efficiency to modern expectations.
Original Floorboards – As all respected decorating companies can confirm, the preference for wooden floorboards over carpet shows no sign of changing. Fortunately, period properties were made with durable floorboards, so even ones that haven’t worn particularly well can usually be returned to their previous strength. With our decorating services, original floorboards can form the base of any contemporary room.
Cornicing – Part of our decorating services involves high-end plastering. As one of the foremost decorating companies operating in Reigate, Kent and Sussex Decorators understand the importance of cornicing to the aesthetic appeal of any period property. Not only do we restore and preserve original cornicing, we create bold contrasts around them using our range of Heritage Colours that form the backbone of our decorating services.
Kent and Sussex Decorators share the feeling of opportunity that property owners in Reigate feel when they decide on hiring our decorating services. While period properties require a level of care that not all decorating companies can offer, our complete refits, exterior restoration work and sash window restoration jobs perfectly blend the period era with contemporary practicality.
