Case Studies of Painting and Decorating by one of the leading providers in the Newton Abbot and Torquay area.

Examples of some of our painting and decorating case studies show the different clients and projects that Lowry Decorators have worked on. Take a look at the case studies below to see what our customers have been up to.

Bedroom Re-decoration in Newton Abbot

The customer requested a re-decoration of their daughter’s bedroom. The bedroom was looking old and tired and the customer wanted something more modern that their daughter would love.

We started with the removal of the old wallpaper, the TV bracket and roller blind before preparing all the surfaces for decoration.
We then used a Crown trade water based paint system, as this has less smell and is also better for the environment.

Two coats of Crown trade clean extreme scrubbable matt were applied to the ceilings and walls, and water based satin applied to all the woodwork.

We then hung new wallpaper which the customer had sourced locally.

The customer also wanted to modernise her daughters old dressing table, so we painted it with chalk paint & added new handles.

The Result: Her daughter was delighted with her new looking bedroom.


 Staircase Re-decoration in Newton Abbot

One of our regular Newton Abbot customers wanted to change her old stained staircase. She wanted to have it painted and then have the handrail a different colour.

As it’s very important to prepare the staircase properly, we sanded down the wood to ensure good adhesion for the special primer.

We used a water based undercoat and gloss as this wouldn’t go yellow after time like some solvent based ones do.

The Result: the customer was thrilled and thought it looked even better than she imagined it would.
