Barrington are specialist heritage property decorators working with many prestigious clients and organisations throughout the UK. We're a company that are truly passionate about our English heritage, which is why we are regularly trusted to work on many beautiful and historically important buildings. We understand and respect the specific requirements which are demanded by such properties, for example:

  • The painting of lime plasters.

  • Delicate restoration and conservation work

  • Maintaining the breathability of structures to ensure good air flow and minimise damp problems.

  • The restoration and maintenance of original decorative features such as cornicing.

  • The use and consultation of traditional colours and finishes.

  • Off-site purpose built workshop for specialist repairs and re-finishing of items.

With extensive experience working with grade I and grade II listed buildings, we take great pride and enjoyment working in some of England's most beautiful homes and properties.


We're a family run business and sticking to our roots has served us well. Operating as a proven team of master decorators means we can guarantee clients a consistently high level of craftsmanship and quality coupled with the highest levels of customer service.

It also gives the advantage of getting to know our clients and better understand their exacting requirements. You will not be dealing with somebody new each time you call. Your dedicated member of the team are accommodating, respectful and skilled in their approach to work.
