Many people wonder if they should pay for someone to paint and decorate their property instead of doing it themselves. 

In this article we will give you 5 reasons why hiring a professional decorator is probably a better choice. 

Save time

You’re probably a busy professional who is working from home or from the office and have an intense job, busy family life or better still – both! Time is something that is rarely on your side. Taking on a professional decorator or tradesman to tackle the DIY to-do list is probably a smart move. It may work out more expensive, however, time is something you will never get back, money can come back. 

Another way to look at it is, how much do you value your time? If it’s £30 / hour and a professional is charging £25 then you’re effectively gaining when hiring a professional painter to decorator your property. 

Product knowledge

There are many paints and paint products out in the decorating universe. A professional decorator is likely to have tried and tested many of these products, and so they can bring their experience and expertise to the table by recommending certain paints, colours, brands, finishes, etc. There is only so much you can read online about products. Choosing the right product could be dependant on the surface, environment and frequency of use. 

Better finish

A professional decorator should have gained a good amount of experience to be able to provide a better finish than the typical person. A better finish can be achieved by using a particular roller pile, or brush type, brush size, etc. There are also various techniques that professional decorators learn over time like cutting in and back rolling to ensure a flat and sharp finish. 


Arguably, hiring a professional decorator to paint your property should be a lot quicker than trying to fit it in between Zoom calls, dropping the kids off at school or cooking dinner. Having a professional decorate your home should be quicker and less disruptive than trying to muster up the might to cut and roll yourself. 


If you find a trusted decorator that you can leave in your property while you take the dog for a walk, go shopping or have a family day out then life cannot be more convenient. Hiring professional decorators to inject some new life into your home while you get on with your busy day is probably a move that you would not regret.
