Home >> Home & Decoration
Most people like to try their hand at some kind of decorating in the home. Peoples tastes cover a very wide spectrum and what one person loves another may loathe. Decorating at home gives you the freedom to please yourself and not worry about impressing visitors, although very idiosyncratic and personal decorating done well, usually impresses.
If you decide not to do the decorating yourself remember that the spectrum of quality in the professional decorating trade ranges from the highly skilled tradesperson(Master Painter) to the unqualified, semi-skilled(cowboy). An ordinary householder may find it impossible at the outset to tell which is which. Cowboys often come in vans with impressive looking logos proclaiming membership to a professional guild or federation, where the only criteria for membership is that the annual fee be paid.
For the ordinary householder the most reliable way is a recommendation from someone you know who has had work done. Also, firms get known for their quality over the years.
