We called Sam for a quotation and professional advice on redecorating our kitchen.
She came to see us the following Saturday, arrived on the dot & gave us a selection of colour scheme charts & professional product booklets for us to keep and peruse at our leisure.
Our existing fitted kitchen was old & looked so outdated, but all the units were solid & well built. To rip it out and fit a new one was enormously expensive, but also seemed a waste of the quality units we had.
Sam talked us through our options and what can be achieved with various colour choices & types of paint finish, as well as helping us source new handles and fittings. In a very short time and with minimal disruption, our old fashioned units are now transformed into a sleek & modern designer style kitchen.
We are both very happy & surprised that such a remarkable makeover was possible without having to resort to buying a whole new kitchen.
Dealing with Sam, from her initial visit, through to the completion of the project was a real pleasure. She was always available to offer advice & answer our questions while we explored our options on colours and finishes, and she was particularly helpful with our search for new fittings & fixtures.
We have recommended Sam to all our family and friends and to anybody who is looking for a superior painter and decorator with the integrity & skills to produce the highest professional results.
I am happy to be contacted in person if I can offer any further information.

We have been delighted with the work that Sam Brown has done for us, and the manner in which she has carried it out.
Taking on the complete interior and exterior decorating of our whole house, she has been utterly professional and reliable.
She has turned up without fail when she has said she would, and has been sensitive and accommodating in keeping all disruption of our family life to a bare minimum.
Her advice on materials, colours and project management has been invaluable.
Her attention to detail and the pride that she takes in her work are evidenced in the high standard & quality of her finishes. She provided constant consultation on progress and swift resolution of any complications that inevitably occur. Where she was unable to provide services herself such as scaffolding and bigger specific building repairs, she recommended and facilitated tradespeople of the highest standard.
We feel completely confident in the superb job Sam has done. She has exceeded our expectations in consideration to the original condition of our property and the limitations of our budget and we are delighted with the results she has been able to achieve.
We are very happy to recommend Sam and are equally happy to speak further in person should anyone wish to call on the numbers above.

I can thoroughly recommend Samantha’s decorating skills. She has decorated for me on numerous occasions over the years, painting & wallpapering my master bedroom & en-suite, a very large lounge, the dining room & drawing room, & also applying handmade feature wallpaper in my entrance hallway.
She has most recently redecorated my kitchen & breakfast room. This included painting all the bespoke fitted kitchen units, a welsh dresser & fitted glass display cabinets, in addition to the ceiling, walls, doors & skirting.
Sam has done an outstanding job & the finished effect is really stunning.
She is a real perfectionist & inspires confidence by the great pride she takes in her work. It’s a pleasure to have her in my house to transform it & I have been delighted with all the results her work achieves.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you wish for any further information.

We had beautiful double glazed wooden windows fitted by a great firm in our Victorian home.
Samantha was one of a small group of professionals that they would positively recommend for their interior & exterior painting. We went with Samantha because of her informative and courteous manner, and her evident professionalism and craftsmanship.
She completed the whole project swiftly and all her work results in a really high quality finish.
She is a very comfortable person to have around & we felt completely confident to give her keys & leave her alone in our house. We have already booked her to do several more decorating jobs throughout our home, knowing that we can expect a really first class job from her as standard.
In summary, our experience with Samantha is that she is outstanding at her job & represents excellent value. Her precisely careful and tidy work is clearly evident in the high quality & finish of her results.
We are delighted with Samantha’s work and would happily recommend her services to all potential future clients.
Please feel free to contact me personally on my number above for any further testimonial.

We had Sam decorate our hall, stairs and landing as the thought of me tackling the job was too daunting. I have to say she didn’t disappoint. It has been transformed!!!
She came to the house promptly to look at our requirements and provided us with detailed quotes which included all aspects of the works to be carried out and materials to be used.
Professional, tidy, and a hard worker is an understatement. I will definitely be using Sam again and will be recommending her to anyone that asks me for a painter and decorator.
Thank you so much it looks amazing.
Irene Austin, St. Albans
Sam did a fantastic job painting our solid wood fitted kitchen.
She has transformed it entirely, painting all the units, cabinets, drawers, shelves, panelling, cornices & mouldings.
In just 2 days, it has gone from being a dated orange country pine to a beautiful pastel shaker style designer kitchen, and the transformation is amazing. Her skills & attention to detail are clearly evident in the high quality & finish of her work.
Sam is so very efficient & unobtrusive. We felt very comfortable with her working in our house while we were out.
She did not leave any mess at all & did a highly professional job from start to finish.
We are delighted with her work and have no hesitation in highly recommending her.
Please feel free to call me if you would like to discuss any details further.

Giving sam very short notice, we asked her to decorate our sitting room, master bedroom & dressing room, our young son’s bedroom & our hall, stairway and landing. Each room required considerable attention throughout, with all ceilings, covings, walls and all woodwork to be decorated in every area, and as we were moving in the following week, sam set to work at a mighty pace!
From first contact to completion we found sam to be the ultimate professional, with a real passion to deliver the very highest standards. We were thrilled with the end results, giving us the perfect foundation to build on.
We would very highly recommend sam to anyone needing a brilliant professional painter and decorator.
I can be contacted on my mobile number above should anyone require any further information in person.

I was intrigued to find Sam's advertisement in the St. Albans Yellow Pages, as she is operating within what is traditionally a male-dominated trade.
I phoned and left a message, to which she responded the same evening, asking her to estimate for redecorating my main bedroom.
I was taken from the outset by Sam's friendly yet confidently professional approach to the task, with all work and necessary materials and equipment being clearly identified and costed in a detailed quotation, sent promptly by email following an initial weekend visit to site.
Sam completed the job well within her time estimate, and I am both pleased and impressed with the standard of her workmanship.
She has now also redecorated my lounge & dining room, 3 bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, my hallway and 15 panel doors and frames.
Although decoration inevitably involves a certain amount of disruption to daily life, Sam does her utmost to minimize this by being a steady, quiet and unobtrusive worker. No blaring radio or demands for a cup of tea every half-hour!
Sam takes great care to protect fittings and furnishings within the work area and elsewhere in the home. Any of her equipment left on site overnight is tidily stored away at the end of the day, and all debris is cleared, bagged and removed as soon as possible.
Suffice it to say that I have already asked Sam to quote for decorating another room during the autumn; and can unreservedly recommend her to anyone seeking a friendly, reliable and efficient decorator.
Please feel free to contact me should you wish to verify these comments.

I am writing this short note in genuine praise of the work Samantha Brown recently completed throughout my home.
To say it needed redecorating would be an understatement; indeed, there wasn't a corner that didn't need attention. In a relatively short time, what Samantha achieved was fabulous and of such an excellent standard that I'm both surprised and thrilled at how good my home looks now!
From offering advice on colour (she has a good eye), through to recommending exactly what products and materials to use, she saw the whole project through with patience, diligence and skill.
Crucially, I felt that she was a perfectionist. I was very impressed with her "Only the best will do" attitude.
Walls, ceilings, woodwork and kitchen ceramic tiling - she approached every detail with care and effort, even going over things again if she wasn't entirely satisfied or if she considered it necessary.
My home has quite literally undergone a transformation. I feel that it has been money very well spent and I have recommended Samantha to all my family & friends and I am equally happy to reiterate these sentiments in person, should any prospective customers reading this wish to contact me on my home number above.
A job by Samantha Brown is a guaranteed job well done.
Wayne & Clare, Hertfordshire
Sam came to our family home to complete extensive decorating work on our dining room, guest bedroom, master bedroom & dressing room, hallway & wc.
We chose many different colours of paint & beautiful feature wallpaper in each room, which Sam put up with expert precision. She assisted from our initial meeting with paint, wallpaper and colour advice, and she was always available on the phone to discuss our concerns.
Sam always arrived promptly, was meticulously clean, tidy, and unobtrusive. All her tools and equipment were stored neatly out of the way, enabling us to still have full use of our home each evening, despite having so many rooms decorated. Sam always managed to cater to our family needs whilst tolerating endless questions from us and our children!
Sam completed all the work efficiently and to a very high professional standard. We would have no hesitation in employing Sam to complete further work in our home and are equally happy to highly recommend her to anybody looking for an excellent decorator.
Pam and Frank Agnew,
Sam has just decorated our hall, stairs and landing, lounge and dining room. The hall, stairs and landing being a particularly challenging brief!
She is meticulous in her preparation and has the eye of a perfectionist. Sam is happy to advise, recommend and listen. She arrives on time and will work until she reaches a suitable break - often staying until 6.30 p.m. Sam is a pleasure to have in the house; she is lovely to chat to but will also make every effort to intrude as little as possible.
We have no hesitation in recommending Sam and would certainly ask her to come and help us complete any future decorating projects.
