Master Decorator since 1975

At Lammas Master Decorators we meet the need in the interiors market for highly skilled and experienced decorators, with an ability to complete more complicated projects such as fitting bespoke designed murals and hand printed wallpaper, where there can be no allowance for costly errors.  Our operatives are also skilled in all of the traditional decorative effects of the master decorator including: wood graining, marbling and broken colour paint techniques. Many of these techniques are becoming obsolete in England and can only be performed by a handful of highly trained decorators. They elevate an interior design and take it to the next level of creativity.

Steve Lammas from Lammas Master Decorators

Our master decorator, Steve Lammas, started decorating when he became an indentured Painting and Decorating (P&D) apprentice in 1975.  After 20 years on the tools, he became a P&D lecturer at Hackney Community College training and assessing new decorators for the building industry.  During this time he became a qualified teacher, a City & Guilds NVQ accessor and obtained an HNC in Surveying and Project Management.  He left the college in 2018 to go ‘back on the tools’ with one of his ex-students to work on projects in central London and Essex. He now works on high-end residential and commercial projects in Kent and East Sussex.

Lammas Master Decorators wants its customers to experience high quality design and finish and to enjoy the difference between something that is not just well executed but totally exquisite. Our work stands out from the crowd because of the skill and attention to detail in the finish. We can make even the most basic room look stunning with our expert design and detailing.
