Working in the decorating business for over 20 years, many people were asking where can I go and buy nice wallpaper that is different to anywhere else? This is where we saw a definite gap in the market.
We decided to open a shop with the aim of offering affordable luxury wallpaper. Many designs that are exclusive to us. We then had to come up with a name, and we thought the best way was to say exactly what we do, Wallpaper & Paint Store™.
So with the name decided, we then had to decide where we would like to open our first store. We chose Hornchurch as we noticed that it was a popular community high street with the essential shops, like Boots and Argos and also fantastic independent shops. The clientele we noticed were of all age groups, from young new families who enjoyed decorating their new homes to retired people who liked to keep their homes well decorated.
We were also aware of the previous wallpaper business, Norman Douglas The Wallpaper Shop, retiring after 50 years, and we were certain their loyal customers were looking for a new wallpaper retailer.Unfortunately we were not able to move straight into their shoes and had to find an alternative shop. Michael’s Butchers were closing and we decided to take on the big project of transforming it into the Wallpaper & Paint Store.
We opened for business on 17th June 2013.Our store has lots to offer either the home owner who likes to DIY to the tradesman. There are over 150 different wallpapers in stock that you could take home today and hundreds of wallpaper books from suppliers such as, Casadeco, Galerie, Roberto Cavalli and Kandola etc. that are usually with us within 2 - 5 working days. We have a large range of Dulux paints and also a colour mixing machine. There is a large range of tools in stock and we are a premier stockist of Polyvine that offer a vast range of varnishes, finishes and stainers etc.
