We are leading painters and decorators in Edinburgh, providing high quality interior and exterior painting and decorating solutions to commercial and residential properties.

About Us

2022 sees Henderson & Paterson proudly achieving its 90 years. We were originally established in 1932 by James Henderson and James Paterson who focused mainly on the painting of domestic properties throughout Edinburgh. The business expanded into other markets such as banks, offices, and hotels whilst still serving the private housing market within the city, predominately within the South of Edinburgh.

In 2008, the company became a division of George Nicolson, a well-respected decorating company based in Leith, Edinburgh who have been established for 50 years. This allowed Henderson & Paterson to focus on the residential and private house markets, as well as shops and small offices whilst still holding the same values and standards since it began 90 years ago.


Over the years we have established relationships with many clients throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians including Merchiston, Morningside, Marchmont and Blackford as well as Leith, Trinity, Portobello and Musselburgh.




In addition to providing you with an impressive painting and decorating service, we can fulfil any project by delivering specialist finishes such as faux finishing, marbling, graining, sign-writing, and professionally applied digital images, silk or broad vinyl wall coverings.

“All our site operatives are very experienced and fully qualified tradespeople who are trained in various aspects of Health & Safety such as First Aid, Working at Height and Asbestos Awareness.”
