Below is just a selection of some of the comments and feedback I have received here at Smooth Design.
"Tony came to plaster my bathroom, hallway, and dining room. None of them simple jobs I have to say, as the walls we're all out, and also have lots of different angles and other complicated bits that needed dealing with. We weren't as plastering ready as we hoped either, and what I really liked about Tony was how he was prepared to get stuck in and help us get the walls and rooms ready too. Tony's really dedicated to doing a good job and will stay till he's happy with the job, he's also infectiously enthusiastic too (a real plus in this house since most trades so far have despaired at our previously cow-boyed home!). I'd highly recommend Tony he's trustworthy, committed and very likeable. He's coming back soon to do our kitchen too!"
Carla Ross, Forest Row, East Sussex

"Tony did a brilliant job of tiling our bathroom. It wasn't a simple job as the walls are rather wonky and our border tiles are twice the depth of the wall tiles (oops!), but he embraced the challenge and came up with solutions to the problems. Tony is a really friendly, likeably guy, enthusiastic, hardworking and a complete perfectionist. I'm really pleased with the result and would definitely recommend Smooth Design to anyone."

"Tony fitted a cat flap into a upvc door for us and did a fantastic job, even putting up with my 7 year old bombarding him with questions for an hour and a half! He even stayed on to do an extra job, which hadn't been quoted for. We found him to be a very professional yet kind and honest person and will use him for any other work we need doing in the future. We would definitely recommend him to others.
Wendy Webb, Melbourn, Cambridgeshire
“Tony plastered one of our bedrooms where one of the walls (and ceilings adjacent to that wall) was brick, and fixed a crack in the ceiling of another bedroom. Professionally and friendly, the work was done neatly and we are very happy with the turn-out of the room. He had to pop in several times to discuss with us before the work started because we wasn’t entirely sure what we needed to have done. He made good suggestions and explained the work to us in detail before the work starts.”
Ji Dong, Royston, Hertfordshire
"Tony tiled and transformed our bathroom from bog-standard to hotel-standard. He is very easy to work with, precise and determined to do the best job possible.

He is very proud of his work and comes up with many ideas. He always goes the extra mile and has helped me at very short notice in the past. I love the bathroom he has just tiled. It’s the kitchen next, and he is the only man for the job!!"
Jan Freeman, Royston, Hertfordshire
"As DIY no-hopers, my husband and I had build up quite a list of odd-jobs. Tony responded to our call for help almost immediately, and listened attentively as we went through them, making useful suggestions along the way. We received our quote very quickly and the work was scheduled.Tony arrived, as arranged, and on time, and rattled through what was quite a number of varied tasks - from fitting a cat-flap, to replacing door handles, to hanging photo frames with 'bespoke' fixings invented on the spot by Tony. All jobs were completed to a high standard and Tony left everything clean and tidy. We will certainly use Tony again in the future, and would be happy to recommend him to others"

He is an enthusiastic worker and is completely professional in everything he does, from cleaning up after himself to responding to e-mailed enquiries. I'd definitely use his services again."
Mrs B H, Therfield, Royston
"After doing a great job tiling our bathroom, we had Smooth Design back to re-board and plaster our kitchen ceiling and then to tile the kitchen splash back. Tony is always well presented and punctual, as well as being conscientious of your needs, offering advice and another perspective. He is also friendly and trustworthy meaning we were more than happy to give him the keys to the house while we were at work knowing that everything will be completed to a high standard on our return. Minimal hassle and minimal fuss!Thanks Tony!"
Ben & Jess, Bassingbourn, Royston
"Tony tiled a bedroom fireplace for us recently. Although it was a small area, it wasn't an easy job as the tiles we'd chosen were soft and needed careful cutting around some awkward angles. Nevertheless Tony was unfazed & proved he was up to the challenge. He was extremely prompt in responding to my initial email enquiry and was equally punctual on the day. While work was in progress he checked in regularly with me to make sure I was happy with what he was doing. He was extremely tidy & even polished up the tiles for us once he'd completed the job! Tony takes obvious pride in his work the quality of the end result is testament to his meticulous approach and attention to detail."
Charlie & David Miles, Royston, Hertfordshire
"It’s great to find a handyman who tackles any job, large or small, with the same enthusiasm and attention to detail. Tony did an excellent job fitting a new shower screen in the bathroom and rebuilding the fitted wardrobes in my bedroom to customise them for me. At the same time he dealt with a number of little things that needed fixing, which took a load off my mind after moving into a new house. I would definitely use Smooth Design again and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation."

Retile Wall and Repair
We had another tiler not do the correct wall preparation and the tiles come off then wall causing damage to our new bathroom. We then called Smooth Design. We were really happy with the job Tony did in our bathroom. tony took less than two days to re-tile the wall, and repair the damaged to the adjacent walls, skirting board and floor tiles, leaving the bathroom as good as new.
Mr Brooking, Cambridge
I have used Tony on two occasions - once before Christmas 2015 and again last month. He has undertaken numerous jobs including putting up a wall clock, fitting floor scotia/Beading, putting up a cupboard, cutting and removing a kitchen worktop and swapping around a kitchen cabinet to fit in a Fridge Freezer. It is always easy to contact Tony, and he always arrives on time. He completes work to a very high standard and is very tidy and clean. Tony is friendly, and explains everything he is doing as he goes alone.
I would recommend Smooth Design to anybody and would certainly use him again in future.
Naomi, Royston, Hertfordshire
Tony helped us with design and suggest types of edging for our tiles we didn't even think about. He's very helpful and we are over the moon with Tony's end result. Our kitchen now looks like one you'd find in a magazine. Tony is defiantly the man for all our tiling and handyman jobs in the future.
