The mindset of a painter

I really enjoyed the mindset challenge working on this current project.yes Painting is about getting the right finish but that will never come without the mindset to focus on such detailed work.its one thing having experience and product knowledge but the the mindset in some contractors can waver & differ.The next day I finished this project I went back to see the client and then and there it hits you the sense of achievement and satisfaction is why I did this really ! Of course I got paid but that’s not the driven force behind doing such work like this.

Bring the sea to your interior

This effect is very dramatic and can be effective in many different interiors.As the video shows a feature wall in the master bedroom or a wall in your on suite bathroom would work well..Water creates a calming atmosphere and gives the individual a overall calming sensation.This would also work well in a hotel spa or swimming pool.

Shades of grey

Choosing the right shade of grey is a tricky shadesbusiness.

From my point of view, conversations with customers who want grey paint can potentially be quite embarrassing. With the infamous book and film now out, talking about grey has become a hazard of the decorating profession!

From a customer’s point of view, there are many more than 50 shades to choose from. Cool greys contain a tint of blue, while warm greys contain more yellow. Each one will give a different feel to your room – so be careful what you ask for!

“It is all in the prep.”

Painting is only a small part of a decorating job, so you’ll often hear Jamie saying: “It’s all in the prep!”

Preparation is crucial to achieve a good finish. That’s why we spend so much time removing defects, filling holes and cracks, priming knots in woodwork so they don’t show through, and sanding to a smooth finish before we apply the first lick of paint.

Note that preparation can be dusty work, so we’ll protect your belongings with sheeting before we start.

There are no shortcuts on prep, but it’s so worthwhile and you’ll be amazed at the results.

Pause for thought

Here’s the type of script I sometimes use when presenting a one-minute pitch at a networking meeting. I’d love to know what you think of it! Please comment below. Thank you for your valuable feedback.

  • Have you had tradespeople carrying out work on your home or business?
  • Would you use them again?
  • Would you put your reputation on the line by recommending them to friends, colleagues and family?

If you had to pause before you could say a confident ‘yes’ to all those questions, you need a decorating service which will leave you with no hesitation.

Mint Décor undertakes all aspects of interior and exterior decorating for domestic, commercial and industrial properties. Thanks to our attention to detail, our customers enjoy complete peace of mind. They welcome us back into their home or business, and to work with their nearest and dearest.

Next time you are looking to freshen up a room anywhere in Surrey or South London, please call Jamie Mintrim at Mint Décor.
