Adrian Burroughs@ ABsolutely Decorating & Design



I'm Adrian Burroughs, and i own and manage ABsolutely Decorating & Design, id like to take some time letting you know a little bit about myself, my company, my experience in the building industry and in particular the finishing trades.

After leaving school in the Summer of 88', i always knew my passion was in colour and art, and having been a very practical student i found myself working as an apprentice for the Wiltshiers builders group in Canterbury ( 1988-94).

Having started my time as a french polisher, i accumulated a great deal of knowledge in timber finishes and spray techniques, i then moved over to the decorating division to complete my working apprenticeship over 4 years.

In my time as an apprentice i received all my city & guilds qualifications to the highest level of distinction and also picked up the apprentice of the year award for the international based company.

At the tender age of 22 i decided to start my own business and commenced with setting up Adrian Burroughs Decorating & Renovations.

This has seen over 25 years of success and is the staple of the majority of work i receive still, however my passion for colours and design has grown over the years and a lot of the work i undertake has seen me advising more and more regarding colour schemes and themes.

Having worked with many interior designers and collaborated on many projects in London & Kent with input for client and designer, i decided to undertake a diploma in interior design with the interior design institute (2017-18). 

When i passed with distinctions i set up ABsolutely Decorating & Design to incorporate the knowledge and experience of my years in colours, interior design and decorating.

I went on to further my experience with a Home staging course and have had many an input with clients on how to set up there home when viewings are due or open house is planned for the sale of a property.

Having had an extensive range of work experiences over the years, i've found that my work has taken me into both residential and the commercial side of decorating and design.

This has seen the company work branch out as far as London\Kent\Essex and even into Europe should clients request work for second properties or new builds abroad.

The latter part of this scenario has often been the case due to clients wanting reliability from a tradesman on site abroad, one they can trust to over see a project, provide professionalism and to put the schedule of works in order to complete a job on time, of quality and in budget.

We cover all elements of Decorating & Renovations and should a major project be needed then i have fantastic and reliable contacts in all the trades built up over time and can promise a quality finish. 

Being able to bring in other trades and tie in the working schedule is something that has been achieved many times to please a client and to create that fantastic finish.

So now at ABsolutely Decorating and design we are very excited to be able to bring you a few new additions to my decorating business, and although all of my Decorating & Renovating fundamentals are still here for all your property needs, i felt it only right to re brand to offer you the design and home staging elements that i'm so keen to add for my clients, and have been working tirelessly to perfect these services so you can now benefit from all my 30+ years of experience. 

To find out all the features at your disposal, please head to the services section as we will explain the process for each of our divisions there.

Then feel free to contact us and we will happily arrange a time\date to make a visit to discuss what you need. 

Thank you for taking the time to check out my website
