Darrel Young Painter & Decorator


We have completed a number of successful, local contracts for common stair painting in Edinburgh and the Lothians. With our network of trusted trades, we can handle everything from the hire of safety platforms to the maintenance of a door entry system.


We pride ourselves in out attention to detail to all of our interior decorating work. Whether that be a single room at home or an entire office, cafe, restaurant or bar. We service both domestic and commercial customers.


Hanging wallpaper and specialist vinyls are a speciality of ours. We have worked with some of the most expensive wall coverings and take great care in the handling and finishing of all wallpapers we work with.

Why Choose Us

Thorough Preparation

We go to extraordinary lengths to prepare your job before we even consider cracking open a tin of paint. We protect all surfaces, carpets and furnishings from dust, splashes and spray. Our prices may not be the cheapest but they do reflect the time and attention that we give to every job

Quality Materials

We use low odour, water based emulsions, glosses and satin paints that carry a low VOCs rating (Volatile Organic Compounds), which are materials that evaporate from paint and are potentially harmful to the environment.


With over twenty years painting and decorating experience you are in capable hands with Darrel Young. Darrel has worked with some wonderful Edinburgh bars & restaurants including Treacle, Hamiltons and Blackbird as well as modification work for Hector Russell Kilt Makers.

Our Three Step Process

Our goal is to make the process of redecorating as easy as possible.

1. Survey & Estimate

No two jobs are ever the same, so we would always want to survey the job to create an accurate estimate. By doing this we can also advise on any room or space that may need cleared or any special access that we may need to organise such as platforms for outside painting access.

2. Agreed Budget, Materials & Timeline

Our estimate will give you an idea of the budget you need to set aside. Occasionally and once the job has started, our customers like to ask up to cover a few extras, so an estimate is just that. However, from our survey, we will be able to estimate accurately the expected time and materials needed to complete the job. We should also be able to indicate a start date so that you can plan for project to commence.

3. Work Completion

We will complete the work to the specification agreed in our estimate. Occasionally our cutomers do ask us to carry our some additional work whilst we are on site and this can extend the time onsite and work completion date.
