Perfectly run projects are a juggling act.


At Different Strokes, we pride ourselves on thorough planning & organisation - which leads to smooth running 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.
