My name is Conor and I am proud to be the proprietor of Emerald Painters, a leading, top class local painting and decorating business based in Southbourne, Bournemouth covering the Dorset area.

We have established ourselves over many years in the building and construction industry and have many many happy clients. As a result of this we are constantly asked for a whole range of home improvement services, and have therefore, established a network of professional tradesmen within this industry.

From an initial enquiry to job completion, we can manage the entire process to provide you, the client, with a first-class professional job. We pride ourselves with reliability, punctuality, affordability and most of all our organisational skills.

Work is completed in sequence so that projects are undertaken with the minimum of fuss, ensuring the progress of each job is completed in order and to satisfactory time scales. Not only are we able to provide the labour, but we can also source a complete range of products, if this is required.

We believe we offer a fantastic service ensuring clients return to use our services time and time again. Using our experience and knowledge we are happy to help if you have been let down at the last minute – let us help you, we could potentially get someone in to help you tomorrow.

Emerald Painters Donate Hand Sanitiser to Macmillan Caring Locally - Helping our Local Community

Supporting Macmillan

We donated 30 litres of sanitizer to Macmillan Caring Locally based at Christchurch Hospital, for their community nursing team. Neil Williamson, a coordinator from Macmillan Caring Locally said:

“We just had the pleasure of meeting (from a safe distance) Conor from Emerald Painters who kindly donated a huge supply of hand sanitiser for our staff. Stock that he cannot use because he is unable to work during the crisis.”

“This was such a kind thought, and we hope that once we are back to normal Emerald Painters and all other small businesses get plenty of new orders.”

Supporting Health Care Workers

Emerald Painters have donated 1,000 pairs of surgical examination gloves to Aucklands Rest Home on Ken Road in Southbourne.

Director of Emerald Painters Conor McIlvenny said: “A substantial amount of our workload involves working in universities and hospitals.”

“With most of our staff furloughed at the moment, and PPE being like gold dust at the moment, we thought it would be a good gesture to donate any PPE that we stock to a worthy cause and support our local community.”

Donating to Southbourne Food Bank

Conor and his crew were very accommodating and to a fit the large number of areas that I needed decorating within a specific timeframe was much appreciated, especially during a busy time of year for them! The crew was amazingly friendly as they always arrived very punctually, worked hard, and straightened up before leaving. They are the go-to people, they do excellent work, when they leave everything is spotless. So, terrific work and price, showed up when they said they would, no problems, no issues, no concerns. I wish everyone was like this! I would recommend Emerald and his crew without hesitation.



Lounge and Dining Room redecorated and painted

I’m in the processing of selling my house, and decided that these two rooms were looking very shabby, especially the wallpaper. Once again, Conor and his team rode to the rescue and have done a marvellous job. Very special thanks to Mick (Wall-paperer and Painter extraordinaire). I would have no hesitation in recommending Emerald Painters to anyone who needs decorating work done to a high standard.

Decoration works to 4 bedroom house

Emerald Painters promptly popped over to give me a quote and admittedly not the cheapest but I liked Conor’s knowledge and experience so gave them the job. The team arrived on time and cracked on unsupervised from myself as I rent out the property. I was very satisfied with the finish and the property was left clean and tidy. I would have no hesitation in recommending emerald to my friend or anyone else. Great job on budget and on time, brilliant service.

Andover SP10

I can really recommend Emerald Painters. As a person with a disability I was desperate for a walk in shower. Let down by other people and told the costs by others plus the weeks delay before it could be done, finding Conor was the best news.

Conor came same day, measured and ordered parts. Costs were half what I had been quoted and he kept in budget. Chris the plumber was a great worker and came prompt each day. I liked the one port of call for all the trades. 5***** service.

“Brilliant, trustworthy, exceptionally hard working. Conor and the team have now been working for us for around 6 months and you get to know the squad after this amount of time and I must say their standard of work is faultless and time keeping impeccable.
