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 on our attention to detail in 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 vinyl 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)

These are quality materials that evaporate from paint and are potentially harmful to the environment.

Years of Experience

With over twenty years of 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

Survey & Estimate
No two jobs are ever the same, so we would always want to survey the job to create an accurate estimate.

Agreed Budget, Materials & Timeline
Our estimate will give you an idea of the budget you need to set aside.

Work Completion
We will complete the work to the specification agreed in our estimate.

What our clients say

I would like to sincerely thank Darrel for the excellent work recently carried out painting the living room and my office in my flat. Darrel gave me suggestions on a new colour scheme, a fair quote and a timescale which he stuck to.

Testimonial from Lindsay Gifford

Darrel is fantastic at his job. He genuinely cares about the job he is doing and this is clear in the results he produces. Darrel recently painted my whole flat. Stop thinking about it and get him booked… you won’t regret it.”

Lindsay Gifford

Darrel has just completed a makeover on my salon I am over the moon with it. He works very professionally and wastes no time. The job was complete very promptly I would highly recommend Darrel and I would not use anyone else..”

Leanne Sturgeon

Darrel came and painted our living room and dining room and made it look fantastic. He was quick but precise, kept everything covered and cleaned up after. I would have no hesitation in recommending Darrel to others.
