I have used Jim and his team for 15 years or so, and would not have anyone else. They are friendly, trustworthy, and a delight to have in the house. (I'm sure I find jobs for them to do regularly just so that they can come back!) Ask Jim about his wallpaper top tip - it's amazing - and saves a ton of money...seriously, my house looks as good 9 years after being decorated as it did when first done.

Jim, his son and their friendly band of brothers have been working on a grade II listed Hall in Hampshire. Jim et al. are always smiling and clearly love what they do! They have been working on this complete redecoration for a couple of months now and are just fabulous.

We've used Jim & his team probably five times over the last 10 years. They do all the essentials very well: good quality, value for money, trustworthy to have around, clean up carefully and the like. As important they're good fun. Zero stress and always a joke or two flying. Jim singing is an experience

Jim and his team are very professional at all times. Courteous and friendly manner and always tidy up after themselves. Good quality workmanship and Jim really does take pride in what he does and it shows in the finish. I would thoroughly recommend Jim and would not hesitate to use Bourne Decorators again. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent results from Jim as always. We have used him a number of time and would never look to use anyone else. Always professional, always a great job.
