Latest Reviews and Feedback

I’ve used Dec Create for 14 years at both properties I’ve lived at. Michelle and Jeremy always do an excellent job and are really helpful at giving advice. Very clean and tidy and competitive.

CC 09 21

Thank you all for your hard work : )  We are very pleased with the redecoration quality and finish throughout! Everyone worked as a team, good communication, keeping the space tidy at the end of each day and clear-up once completed was all excellent.We will be back for more!

KM 07 21

This the second time I have used Jeremy and his team. They were really good again and finished the two rooms plus Hall/stairs/landing quickly AND to a very high standard. They are an excellent team to use. I'm willing to show anyone (by appointment) the results. 

BF 07 21

Michelle and her team decorated our new orangery and utility room. Their work was on time, on budget and excellent. We both are pedantic about quality of work and straight lines - Michelle and her team got everything perfect. Highly recommended.

DL 07 21

Michelle did a fantastic job of decorating my lounge, dining room, hall, stairs and landing, all to a very high standard. She is hardworking, tidy, reliable and friendly. I would recommend Michelle to anyone and will certainly use her again.

JM 06 21

We were very impressed with Michelle and her team. We found them to be friendly and professional, and were delighted with the high quality of work carried out, particularly the repainting of the kitchen cabinets and island. Would definitely recommend their services!

SL 06 21

Friendly, professional and very good advice on the colour scheme.                                                   

AH 06 21

We have recently just had the Dec Create team in to decorate our dining room. It was previously just white and we needed a little help in understanding what colour would work well in the space. Michelle was very helpful and helped us to decide on a colour scheme, ensuring the period features of the room stood out. They did an absolute smashing job and we’re so pleased with the result, thank you to the whole team!

IB 06 21

Michelle decorated the majority of our small 2 bed semi detached house and has done a fantastic job of making it look fresh and modern. We weren’t sure on colours and Michelle gave us some great advice on what was current and how different colours can make a room look bigger. Michelle was also very polite and very clean and tidy. Would highly recommend!

SD 06 21

Impressed by Jeremy's can do attitude, Michelle's colour choice expertise and the excellent standard of Sarah's work. I will recommend Dec Create to my friends and family and use their services again in the future. The team has delivered us with a high quality finish at a competitive price!

TM 06 21

My girlfriend and I were for a bedroom to be wall papered in our home and had a particular time pressure to get it done. I called Jeremy at DEC Create who popped round that day and we agree for the work to be done the following week. We found out the job was going to be a little more challenging that we had expected but they nailed it and the results are incredible! Jeremy and his team were fantastic and we will certainly be using them again in the future. I couldn't recommend DEC enough if you are looking for this type of work to be done on your home.

AJ 05 21

We had the kitchen wall, landing, ceilings and whole stairs redecorated by the team. We also needed sanding, filling and painting of 8 door frames, all work was done in two days. Very fast, tidy and accommodating each and one of them. Fair prices and impeccable experience, would not hesitate to give them a call next time we need to paint or decorate our home. Cannot recommend the Dec Create team enough.Thanks!!!

RR 05 21

Great result, friendly team would highly recommend.

AB 05 21

High quality finish and easy to deal With. Jeremy and the team were flexible and easy to work with. They delivered a great finish and even took in deliveries when I wasn’t home! I would certainly recommend and use again.

JB 04 21

Michelle was marvellous, very meticulous, thorough and highly skilled in her work. Pleasant to have working in the house.

LB 04 21

A fantastic team. Jeremy came along to quote for our hall, lounge, stairs and landing and the work was carried out by Michelle and Zoe. It was a pleasure to have them in our property and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

MN 03 21

Michelle has done a fantastic job on my bedroom, there was a LOT of painting to do: ceiling, walls, panelling, wardrobes, skirting, doors and architrave. All was completed to a very high standard. She also has a wealth of knowledge and ideas worth tapping into. It was a pleasure to have her in my home and I'm so impressed I will be having her back to do additional rooms now. I would have no hesitation on recommending her for any decorating needs.

RM 09 20

Jeremy, Barry and Eddy did a great job on our external windows. They had to dodge around the weather a bit but communication was good and a nice job done - thanks very much.

SB 09 20

Michelle has been a great to deal with from start to finish. Her attention to detail is exceptional and I would highly recommend her.


JM 08 20

Dec Create did a great job painting the windows and doors on our garage. We are really pleased with the result. A very professional service and we hope to use them again.

JP 08 20

Michelle, Jeremy and their team decorated the outside of our house and garage quickly, efficiently and to a high standard. Couldn't have been more helpful. Delighted with the result - a very tidy and reasonably priced job. Would definitely use their services again.

PB 08 20

Couldn't be happier with the great job done by the Dec Create team. The job (exterior decorating) was done as promised, on time, on budget and it looks even better than we hoped for. Would definitely recommend.

First time in using Dec Create and certainly won’t be the last! Michelle came in, very friendly and as it turns out is very clean, tidy and certainly hard working! Our lounge, which is quite sizeable, wanted a complete makeover....some bits needed filling, some needed sanding and the old coving needed a bit of repair to some small cracks as it is quits old....prep work all done, no problem. I won’t drag the review out but the room (complete colour change, especially to the chimney breast feature wall) now looks fresh and has been totally on the list for Michelle is the dining room & kitchen! The long and short of it is if you want a truly professional service who does everything to the highest standard from start to finish, Michelle should be very high on an extremely short list.....massive thanks Michelle, without doubt 5/5

NH 07 20

Michelle, Sarah and the team offered a brilliant service to us. Sarah did a fantastic job painting 3 bedrooms, very diligent and conscientious - the quality of the prep and paint work was brilliant. Would have no hesitations recommending Dec Create to people wanting quality painting done at reasonable costs. Thanks

SD 07 20

Super pleased with the two rooms that Michelle painted for us. Both look great and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

CP 03 20

Michelle and her team were fantastic! So friendly, professional and tidy. Thank you!                                    

SJ 02 20

Very happy and satisfied with filling, emulsion and gloss painting. Sarah has done a very professional job and was very polite and friendly. We should we happy to employ Dec Create again.

MK 02 20

Michelle has decorated our house for several years now. We have always found her most professional and friendly. She knows her job inside out and is meticulous - the first thing that happens each day is a trail of dustsheets from the door to the place where she's working, and on go her plastic slippers! In addition she happily moves furniture, curtains. pictures and lampshades and returns them perfectly when the paint has dried out. Everything is left clean and tidy when she finishes the job, and all rubbish is removed. We can recommend her highly, whether for complete room decoration or just touching up any trouble spots.

PG 10 19

I have used Dec Create for a number of years and have always found that they give a prompt, friendly and good service at a very competitive price. I would recommend them for any decorating work.

JH 10 19

Harry and Michelle really helped me out when I had been let down by another decorator and I am so glad I found them! Harry did some wall papering for me which has turned out really well and Michelle came to redo some poor quality paintwork. Michelle has a really keen eye for detail which is exactly what I needed for my job! Both Harry and Michelle took time to understand my requirements, needs and expected outcomes. In addition, they communicated really well throughout so there were no surprises. Both worked non stop to get the job done and the result for me was excellent. I will definitely be using them again - by far the best decorators I have ever had!

AW 08 19

Michelle from Dec Create is brilliant. I wanted stripped wallpaper in alcove under stairs to match perfectly with stripe on wall over stairs which she did perfectly, it was spot on. Paintwork was also applied with care leading to a very professional finish. Am very pleased with the outcome which has transformed a dull and tired looking staircase into a bright and fresh one. Michelle definitely has an eye for detail. Whether you're looking for a female decorator or just professionals who gets the job done with enthusiasm, care and commitment then you won't get any better than Michelle and Dec Create.

PB 08 19

Michelle and Dec Create were lifesavers! They undid a previous decorator's attempt to wallpaper my lounge and made it the haven I hoped it would be. It took much longer than anticipated as I chose the toughest wallpaper pattern to match in the world, but Michelle persevered. Highly recommended.

RK 08 19

This is the second time I have used the services of Michelle and Jeremy, and it will not be the last. They produce work of an extremely high standard, are friendly and professional and turn up when they say they will. Michelle can advise on colour choices too which is good for me as I cannot easily envisage what a room will look like when it is finished. Jeremy works amazingly hard and will go that extra mile if he sees something extra that needs attention, without necessarily charging more on top of the original quotation, a refreshing change from some workers who squeeze every last penny out of you. He cleans up extremely thoroughly as he goes and afterwards too. Post-plasterers coming in, a front room ceiling and the whole of a bathroom were decorated, including a large amount of wood that needed sanding down and treatment before painting could commence, and it all looks fantastic, I couldn’t be happier with the work.

JC 07 19

Jeremy painted our flat in double quick time, filled all the cracks and was perfectly charming. An excellent job all round.

BF 06 19

As Michelle and Jeremy were recommended to me I left my key with them and went on holiday. I came back to a lovely newly decorated hall and stairs, and all was left totally clean and tidy. They did a brilliant job.

SB 03 19

Lovely job, lovely people. Job done and left all clean and tidy.                                                                   

LB 03 19

Thank you for doing such a lovely job, I am absolutely thrilled with the finished results. I come downstairs and smile every time as it looks so great! Michelle is a lovely lady, excellent work, I have already recommended her to my friends!

KR 02 19

Dec Create decorated our rental house in Wokingham. We live in Derbyshire so needed a reliable company that we could trust to do a good job. We are extremely pleased with the work carried out. Dec Create painted the interior of the whole house and it was completed to a very high standard and the house was left spotless afterwards. Very professional decorators who can be trusted to do a good job, we would highly recommend.

SM 02 19

Michelle and Jeremy provided a great job and team with a very fast turn around to a high standard. Pleasure to deal with, will look to book again for further work.

NF 10 18

Jeremy and his team provide an excellent service and I thoroughly recommend them. He is professional, knowledgeable and completed the work (walls and ceilings mostly) to a high standard and to time and budget.

MG 10 18

Michelle painted the outside of our conservatory and a long outside wall, both in need of TLC. Diligent and nice to have around. A very nice job.

DW 09 18

Michelle and Jeremy came in at very short notice to decorate our dining area which is a large split level room with very high ceilings. As we had a short time frame they came in while we were on holiday and got everything done while we were away, including fitting and painting new skirting board. It was lovely to come home to a beautifully decorated room and find everything clean and tidy. Thank you so much Michelle and Jeremy. Highly recommended.


CF 09 18

I highly recommend Dec Create, they've done a fantastic job! I am very pleased with the results and did exactly what I've asked for! Thank you once again Dec Create for making my home so lovely.

NR 09 18

Michelle is the only one I call now when I need decorating done. Did a brilliant job of my lounge and hallway (twice) and latterly my sons bedroom. Great service and attention to detail as well as competitive. Thanks as always Michelle. Very glad to endorse your work.

DD 07 18

I used Dec Create on a recommendation to have my hall, stairs and landing wallpapered and painted. Michelle was working mostly on her own. I am most pleased with the standard of her work, so much so I have asked her to return for another 4 days next week to do some more.

AS 07 18

Jeremy and Michelle have been to paint different rooms in our 4 bedroom house. They are professional, punctual and helped out at short notice. Would definitely recommend.

Michelle did a really good job of decorating 2 bedrooms, bathroom and hallway in my maisonette. She is friendly, reliable, trustworthy, and left the house tidy at the end of each day. Would not hesitate to recommend.

JL 06 18

Jeremy did a good job in our lounge and again for the hall stairs and landing. His work was clean and tidy. He was also able to call in other trades for a floor problem which proved equally satisfactory. Recommended as a good professional friendly painter and decorator.

JL 05 18

Dec Create - Michelle has just completed my decorating for the upstairs of my home. She was highly recommended and I will also be recommending. Michelle is professional, knowledgeable and skilful.

I definitely will be asking Michelle to do more work in the future.

I have used Dec Create twice. I was unsure what colour schemes I wanted both times and was offered fantastic ideas and sample colours to help making a choice. Michelle was very professional and friendly. I was so pleased with the results can't wait to use them again!

SD 01 18

Have used Dec Create for many years now and are the only people we will use in future - they have now redecorated our house entirely twice in 18 years. The owners are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional as are all the people that work for them; always happy to help and offer advice, they are punctual, do what they say will when they say they will, keep any mess and disruption to a minimum and always leave the job clean and tidy. An excellent job for a fair price. Completely recommend this company!

Michelle from Dec Create did an excellent and very professional re-decoration of our third bedroom. She was very conscientious, clean and tidy. We are very pleased with the end result.

FB 01 18

Jeremy's a nice personable guy, professional and reliable at a competitive but fair price. Not a big job but he was punctual, kept the appointment, and did it well.

MT 09 17

Prompt reply to my request for a quote. Very happy to have the choice of a lady to do the work, living on ones own. Enjoyed a good working relationship. Clean and tidy at the end of each working day. Very pleased with my fresh hall and stairway. Happy to highly recommend.

MF 06 17

I had Michelle come over to apply wallpaper in my daughter's bedroom. Michelle was fab and she did a brilliant job we are really pleased with it. She was on time, well prepared with everything she needed and very tidy. I would definitely recommend Dec create, and have Michelle come back again in the future! Thank you!

I chose Dec Create from all the great reviews online and we weren't disappointed. The team were great, turned up on time and did a fab job. They were very competitive price wise as well so I would highly recommend them. 

CC 03 17

We had a very small window of opportunity to decorate and carpet my mum's retirement property. We spoke to Jeremy on the Tuesday, saw him on the Wednesday and he and his team started on the Friday. They finished on schedule and we were very pleased with the results. The whole team were polite, friendly and very accommodating. We would use them again and would highly recommend them. 

AJ 12 16

Jeremy and Michelle always provide a professional service. We have used them a number of times for both external and internal work which is always done to a high standard.

CC 11 16

I was really struggling to complete the preparation of all the woodwork in my bedroom before painting, in fact I would say I was panicking. I called Jeremy and within the hour he popped round and had a look at what I'd done, reassured me and gave advise. No hard sell, just encouragement and if I wanted help to get in touch but I was actually doing ok. So my review is, this company will listen and advise and not do a hard sell.Thank you Dec Create for your encouragement! 

JM 11 16

We have used this company many times over the years. They are professional, prompt and clean. Their quotes are also very competitive. It has been a pleasure dealing with them over this time.

CS 10 16

We were very happy with the quote from Dec-Create - the response to our request for a quote was prompt and the work fitted in well with our time schedule. It was lovely to have Michelle in the house doing the decorating and we would definitely be very happy to use this company again.

AM 09 16

We have been very pleased with the service and quality of work provided by the team at Dec Create. From our very first contact with them when we inquired about the quote and conditions, they were professional, responded promptly and provided suitable and very reasonable options to our needs for decorating the house. We are very pleased with the final result.They were recommended to us by a friend and we will be more than happy to recommend them as well.

FB 08 16

I received excellent service from this company when I asked them to sort out problems in the bathroom and decorate my daughter's bedroom. I felt that the quotes were reasonable, the work was completed in good time and I was pleased with the results. I think DecCreate offers a reliable professional service to its customers and I have recommended them to other people.

MB 08 16

Dec Create recently decorated three rooms in my home. I am not only impressed with the quality of the work undertaken, the professionalism of the workers, but also their competitive rates. Many of my family have also had works carried out by Dec Create and would highly them.

We have used Dec Create three times and each time have been very satisfied with the results. They always arrive on time and keep their work area tidy. Would use again.

MW 05 16

I have used Jeremy on three instances over the last 6 months for three separate properties in the Reading/Twyford area and I will be using him again in the summer. I have found his work excellent, he is competitive on price, reliable and honest and goes the extra mile when he needs to. I would definitely recommend him to other customers.

VC 05 16

Dec Create are outstanding! Jeremy and team did an honest and to the point appraisal of the work needed. They did a great job of repainting my home interiors/porch wood cover and staining the front door. They also replaced a broken garden fence post. The quality of work was excellent and I would have no qualms in using them again. Highly recommended and trustworthy.

AT 05 16

I own a number of flats and I have engaged Jeremy on numerous occasions to re-decorate and renovate them. As well as re-painting inside and outside he has refitted bathrooms and kitchens and re-tiled floors. His work is always of a high standard, and one thing I do like is that he understands your needs and doesn't try to sell you more than you need.

AR 05 16

We have used Dec Create several times over the last 5 years to paint both the inside and outside of our house. They have always done an excellent job, being on time, reliable, clean and tidy around the house as well as being excellent decorators. We have just booked them again to paint a new small extension. 

SP 05 16

Nice people to do business with. Very professional, friendly and helpful. Excellent job done. Would recommend to anyone.
