Sammy Griffiths Painting & Decorating is a Wexford based business specialising in interior and exterior painting and decorating for domestic and commercial settings.
“I see potential in everything I do. Attention to detail is something I strive to achieve. I love a challenge and I really enjoy putting life into whatever it is I am painting, seeing it come into fruition is very rewarding to me. Keeping a high standard is what matters most to me and at the end of the day, it’s my responsibility to put the best possible finish on the job both inside and outside,” explained Sammy Griffiths.
“The business is thriving. Setting up my own business was scary at the start but it has worked out for me. I always work locally. Seldom would I have to travel for work but if I had to I wouldn’t mind the journey.
At present I work solely as it is very hard in this day and age to employ someone that wants to do this job. It’s a job that you either love or hate.
It’s one of the best jobs that you could do and it is very rewarding as you are making people happy as they are going to be looking at the space that I have worked on for the next number of years.
Word of mouth has spread well in regard to me as I like finishing things to a high standard but as the saying goes; you’re only as good as your last job,” enthused Mr Griffiths.
In terms of colours that Sammy can see as being popular over the next number of months?
“I think all shades of green are going to be really popular, especially from the Colourtrend range, I have painted a lot of green since the beginning of this year.
Anything from Colourtrend right through to the Dulux Diamond Matte range ‘Moda,’ have some lovely colours.
Before you choose your colours, it is important to think about the light in the room as well as what you are going to be doing in that space. You would like to have calm or relaxing colours when it comes to the reading room, dining room or a ‘good sitting room.
“You can take a chance in areas with certain colours especially when you can match furniture and accessories to it.”
As to the future of Sammy Griffiths Painting & Decorating?
“A constant steady flow of work is the main thing that keeps my mind at ease and in the future I may have to consider expanding the business giving the increasing demand.
It is always about progressing. I think I have established a good name for myself and receiving phone calls from people telling me that I come highly recommended is great to hear,” concluded Mr Griffiths.
