Oakwood Painting




My name is John Worsley, owner of Oakwood Painting, providing high standard professional decorating services in Winchmore Hill, Southgate, Palmers Green and surrounding areas, where I have lived for about 10 years.


I carry out a full range of interior and exterior decorating work, including flawless hand-painting of kitchen units and furniture.


A much loved but tired kitchen brought to life with lots of preparation and patience! Tikkurila Helmi 30 paint gives a beautiful soft satin finish with a hard-as-nails durability. The colour is Farrow & Ball's Pointing. Walls painted with Mylands Marble Matt in Wimborne White.





This rather dark kitchen dresser was given a new lease of life with several layers of different coloured Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell, rubbed back to give an aged look.





Many homes in the N21 locale possess historic character and charm and I have the experience, knowledge and skills to achieve a beautiful finish in properties of all ages.This through sitting/dining room was decorated with Mythic Matt 100% toxin-free emulsion in the Farrow & Ball colour Portland Stone, with woodwork in Mythic Satin Bright White.




Transforming your home to match your vision of its potential gives me enormous professional pride and satisfaction.





Working in your home requires care and respect and I aim to work unobtrusively and tidily. I use a virtually dust-free sanding system, which ensures a more thorough level of preparation and is more pleasant for you. I work with customers to advise the best paint for their job, ensuring things like durability, ease of cleaning and matching the 'feel' of the property are taken into account. A number of the ranges I use regularly are 100% toxin free, important if you are sensitive/allergic, have health issues or have pets or children.


More use of the fantastic, durable Mythic paint on these wardrobes, Dulux Trade Durable Flat Matt in the loft bedroom and Dulux Trade Diamond Matt in Orchid White in this modern kitchen.







Thorough preparation is the key to all decorating work and my powerful sanding equipment ensures an excellent finish. These windows were painted with Tikkurila Ultra Primer and Ultra Lux gloss water based paints, providing superior protection against the elements.





This property had been neglected for over 30 years! It was power washed and painted with three coats of Dulux Trade Smooth Masonry Paint in Gardenia. Once dubbed the local haunted house, people stopped to take photos when it was finished!





I am an accredited Dulux Select Decorator, member of The Painting and Decorating Association and The London Association of Master Decorators. I am also accredited with Trust Mark, the Government approved scheme for trades. These memberships are re-assessed regularly, thus giving customers peace of mind. Testimonies can be found on my Dulux Select Decorators profile page. 

On my website and Facebook pages you can find more examples of my work.

    This is the third job John has done for us and the reasons for getting him back is primarily the excellent job he does. But with John you are also getting brilliant advice, great communication, flexibility and on top of that he is an absolute pleasure to deal with

    No hesitation is recommending John. He started and finished on time and charged what he quoted. He is clearly proud of his work and made sure I was happy with the finish. Only caveat is book early, he is popular

    John has just completed work on my kitchen, hall, landing and stairs. I am extremely impressed with his thoroughness in the prep stages and his attention to detail. The results are fabulous and I have no hesitation in either recommending him or using his services again.
