About RJ Taylor Decoration

I am a specialist painter and decorator based in Kenilworth, Warwickshire and have been in the trade for 40 years. My son John also works with me in the business and between us we have over 50 years of experience in applying flawless paint finishes. We like to think that we are a good old fashioned father and son team that provide a 1st class service.

Our main area of expertise is hand painting kitchens with modern acrylic, low and zero VOC paints. I think it is also fair to say we have moved with the times and over the last 10 years or so, I have developed extensive knowledge of spray painting kitchens and furniture.

Back to the beginning, I am an old school decorator and my family-owned business, RJ Taylor Decoration Ltd, has been established over 30 years. I have been in the Dulux Select Decorator Scheme since 1997. I have 93 reviews and 100% of reviewers would (and indeed many have) used my services again.

In 2004 I went out on a limb, and started to focus on modern water-based paints. It wasn’t easy, because at that time, the UK trade mainly used oil-based paint on woodwork, and the choice of reliable water-based gloss and eggshell was limited. The trade was also intransigent to change. However it was the best investment I ever made in my trade!

I am equally at home with a brush or spray equipment, and use the best combination to suit each job. After 7 or 8 years’ study, I have since become a recognised authority in the UK on how to achieve the highest standards of finish on woodwork, using acrylic and water-borne paints.

I am Traditional Painter's Sprayed Finishes Consultant, advising end users on equipment choice and set-up. I have also been commissioned to develop a spray painting system for Annie Sloan chalk paint and lacquer, and independently trial and review spray equipment from various manufacturers.

Price guide

Although I can give estimated prices from pictures via email, it would only really be a guide figure. I would much prefer to see the work in person to give a more detailed specification and insight into the products which can be used.

On seeing the work I will give an estimate via email within 3 days, followed up by the same specification via post within 7 days.

The price given will be the final price charged. No hidden extras or charges, unless the specification or materials change.

The price will not be subject to VAT.

Lead times / start dates

Please plan your kitchen painting project on the basis of approximately 12 weeks' lead time. We pride ourselves on our customer service and we will not over promise. Obviously if there is a cancellation or gap in the schedule, you may be offered an earlier start date, but ordinarily, we are booking about 12 weeks in advance.

When upgrading your kitchen, this is actually a good period of time for you to complete any other works, upgrade appliances, choose colours etc in readiness for your kitchen painter... Thanks for your understanding.

About Traditional Painter specialists

In the unlikely event of a complaint about our workmanship, clients will be referred to our 2-step complaints procedure.

If we are unable to provide a satisfactory resolution in-house, consumers will be referred (at no cost) to the Dispute Resolution Ombudsman which is independent and impartial.

Property owners, designers and kitchen companies looking for a reliable craftsman should be aware that all of the kitchen painters and fitters associated with Traditional Painter are independent specialists and are listed on Traditional Painter by invitation only, having demonstrated to myself and their peers that they are highly skilled and experienced craftsmen who know what they are doing. They are also one or two-man teams and share the values and drive for excellence promoted on the site. None have paid a fee to list their services.

As you will see on each profile page, the specialists have also provided additional information to demonstrate to potential clients that they are bona fide businesses. Plus, in addition to their own Terms and Conditions, each member has agreed to follow a general Code of Practice. Ordinary tradesmen they are not.

You are welcome to contact Paul at any time, for general information or for an answer to specific questions you might have about your kitchen or furniture painting project: the order of any renovation works, the options for paint finishes, spray v hand-painted etc.

I can also give you guideline prices for any kitchen painting work, for budgeting purposes, however the best person to talk to about a fixed price quote, specifications and arrangements is the Traditional Painter specialist nearest you, via that unmissable contact button above!
