Crafted finishes for the interior & exterior of modern & heritage buildings.

Every inch of your project is hand finished by the Steve Lively team.  We do not use sprays or other mechanical applications. You can rest assured that at the end of your project that it has been lavished with the same level of care you would expect from a classic car restoration service!


Tradition & Experience

Established in 1987, our team of specialists are trained in traditional decorating techniques and have a minimum of 5 years of experience “on the tools”, sometimes accompanied by one of our home grown apprentices. We take pride in what we do and always guarantee against defects in the unlikely event that we make a mistake or within 6 months of application, materials supplied by us are defective.







Our artisan painting service is second to none and can be adapted to suit all types of properties. We are happy to use our years of experience to recommend the best brands and products for your project, or we can source the manufacturers and colours you require. We paint walls, beams, floorboards, handrails, doors, external joinery and virtually any other surface you’d like revamping. From entire rooms and floors to a handrail which needs a fresh update, no job is too big or small for the team at Steve Lively. Contact us today to find out how we can transform your home with our painting services.

Nothing can transform a room quite like deluxe wallpaper. Regardless of the style of your home, the right wallpaper can complement traditional or contemporary décor. Our professional wallpapering service ensures a flawless finish, with all the finer details taken care of. We’re happy to wallpaper accent walls, entire rooms and even ceilings if required. We’ll work with you throughout every step of the design and installation stage, to ensure the highest quality and finest workmanship. We can recommend premium wallpaper which will last for years to come, or take care of the ordering for you to make sure enough rolls are purchased. If you’d like to discuss a wallpapering project, please get in touch for a quote.

Light Renovation


Do your sash and casement windows need a bit of care and attention? Do they look a little tired, or showing signs of wear and tear? In addition to painting and decorating, Steve Lively’s expertise extends to restoring and renovating old features and fittings. This service is much more than a fresh paint job – we can also replace hardware, weights and sash cords which can restore windows to their prime condition and function. With age, windows can lose their initial appeal and give rise to a mistaken rotted look. Instead of going through the long and costly process of replacing your windows, speak to our team and see how we can repair and renovate your sash windows and casement windows. Contact us for further details.
