Jeffrey MacDonald Interiors

Painting, Decorating and Restoration to the Highest Standards

Our Mission

Because we care deeply about our painting, decoration and renovation work we always go that little bit further in our preparation such as sanding and filling. Our standards are high, and our belief is "fail to prepare, prepare to fail".

We pride ourselves on the fact that we listen to our client needs. We offer advice, design ideas, renovation possibilities and, when needed, a full project management service.

Jeffrey Macdonald Interiors was established in 1997 and is fully insured.

Organisational skills are crucial in our ability to meet all the deadlines we face. We respect our clients and their property, working as cleanly as we possibly can.

Painting, decoration and renovation of period architecture such as Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian houses are a particular strength within my company. We restore ornate cornices and ceiling roses that have lost all their definition over years of painting.

We are experienced in interior decoration for listed properties graded I and II and we are happy to tackle the restoration of exterior features when required.

As specialist decorators we offer clients:

  • broken colour work
  • marbling
  • sponging
  • ragging
  • stippling and graining in any wood effect
  • decoupage

We take pride in every job, and in every piece of work we are commissioned to do.

  • Wallpapering

The work was carried out to an extremely high standard

Just a short note to say thank you for the work carried out recently at our home.  When one has other people entering your property to carry out work it is always entered into with a little trepidation.  However, after a short time of your team arriving on site all the worries were removed.  Your team were punctual, clean and tidy, even at the end of a long day and above all the work carried out to an extremely high standard.

Thank you for making a hard job easy and if we need any more work done your company will be the first we call.

Jeff comes with our highest recommendation

Over the past three years we have been client's of Jeff Macdonald whilst in two late Victorian houses, the first a top-floor flat of a house, and now a terraced house. It hardly seems sufficient to say that we have been pleased with the work of Jeff and his associates. Through his skill and commitment to quality, Jeff has been responsible for changes to hallways, rooms, and exteriors that could not have been imagined.

In particular, with our current house, Jeff has turned our hopes into reality. It is not just that Jeff is reliable and trustworthy, important though these attributes are. It is his vision as to what a room will look like when completed, and his commitment to ensure that this vision is turned into a result of the highest quality. This is particularly important when dealing with period houses, and we have always been impressed by Jeff's sensitivity to this aspect of decorating.

It should be said that Jeff does not force his ideas on style or colour upon anyone, and his thoughts are presented within the confines of what is asked for. We have found, however, that his ideas are invariably worthy of serious consideration, and very likely adoption, in preference to anything we had thought of ourselves!

In short, Jeff comes with our highest recommendation. His commitment to quality, his skill, his sensitivity to the period of the house in question, and his pride in his work are evident for all to see. We are sure that you will not be disappointed should you seek his services.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Jeff and his team

It is rare, these days, to find a Painter/Decorator that one can ultimately rely on. However, Jeff Macdonald runs a team of skilled professionals and his results comes easily up to one's initial expectations.

Jeff will lend a hand with colour decisions and will generally "go that extra mile" to achieve a professional result. Snags, when they occur, are dealt with punctually and the work is kept within the original budget.

In short, I can wholeheartedly recommend Jeff and his team and will no doubt be using them again in the not too distant future.

Preparation is careful and detailed

We have used Jeff Macdonald Interiors on several occasions and work has been completed to a very high standard.

Preparation is careful and detailed, and the rooms have been left in an immaculate condition at the end of the work.

A great value for money proposition.
