Perfectly run projects are a juggling act.


At Different Strokes we pride ourselves on thorough planning and organisation, which leads to smoothly-run projects and happy clients. We're really proud that our approach and quality of work has led both to repeat business and many recommendations by word of mouth.

We are a Self – Catering holiday agent based here in the South Lakes with a vast array of properties that need constant up-keep throughout the year and we are proud to work alongside Different Strokes who provide a top quality service for our decorating needs. Dealing with Robert and the team is a very simple process as they understand our needs as a letting agent, and so because of this I have no problem recommending Different Strokes to our clients.

Yet again, very good job from skilled tradesmen, good prep and fill work, accurate painting and cleaned up very well.

We appreciated the thorough preparation and were impressed with the detailed quotation. It was refreshing to find no ‘hidden extras’!! From start to finish Robert and his team made such a good impression. We will recommend your work and look forward to future collaborations. Thank you.

The team at Different Strokes were the best possible people to employ as we are relatively new to the area. It is difficult to know the right people to employ but the results have been exemplary! We are very pleased. Thank you.
