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.

Different Strokes provided a first class service. The team were very professional, clean and tidy, courteous and skilled. Highly recommended.

We decided to give our house a makeover and went to Different Strokes for advice and expertise. Our experience was excellent. Robert gave us many good ideas during a free consultation where we discussed options for colour and finishes.

First and foremost, thank you for such a terrific job! The standard of the decorating is superb and Peter, Matt and Chris were a pleasure to have in the house. Thank you once again to the three men, they worked really hard.
