Professional Job

Very professional job and worked hard to finish in good time. Very pleased with the work and the room looks great.

Richard Summers

Cornice & Rose Fitting

I felt compelled to write and let you know personally how pleased both Gail and I are with all the work that City Crafts have completed for us. On time, efficient, clean, polite, courteous and very skilled; your employees are a credit to City Crafts. In my experience it is rare to find a company that does exactly what it says it will do to high standards first and every time.

Now that you have completed fitting cornice and roses to the whole property I am more than happy to provide references to potential customers. City Crafts provided outstanding craftsmanship and customer service; thank you all for a job well done.

Ceiling Rose Installation

We love our new ceiling roses that were installed by City Crafts! Their team managed to work around our fairly hectic renovation schedule, and install the roses with minimal fuss. Would highly recommend!

Abigail Cabrelli

Fireplace Cornice

We had a fire place fitted with a false chimney breast. City Crafts had fitted the original cornice in the room as part of a new build for a well known builder, so we went to them to fit the additional cornice. The service from Grace in the office to the fitter was fantastic. Grace and the team managed to order the cornice at short notice and fit our overall schedule so it was all ready for Christmas. The engineer even sorted the connecting cornice as it had dropped with the movement on the new build ceiling to ensure quality of work. Our painter commented that the fitter had done a fantastic job. All round thoroughly pleased with the excellent and prompt work.

Cornice Match and Patch

In our large farmhouse in Fife, we had parts of cornice missing from some rooms due to renovation work and walls coming down, City Crafts matched and patched them up perfectly – you would not notice the transition between old and new. They also installed a large section of cornice onto a sagging ceiling, and even though we were really concerned about the sag drawing attention, it blends in so well to the ceiling and wall that you don’t notice the sag; and the way they have crafted it around the kitchen units is brilliant. Their service is top quality, and very efficient. City Crafts were recommended to us by our kitchen company (Polly and Callum Murray), and I wouldn’t hesitate to pass on the recommendation.

Roger Howison


City Crafts recently re-boarded and re-plastered part of our flat. The work was excellent, but what added to my satisfaction was the fact that they were flexible, efficient, on-time and cleaned up extremely well afterwards.

Sarah Hollis

Would Use Again

We have used City Crafts twice in recent years. In both cases, they matched cornice which was missing or needing renovation. City Crafts matched and patched them up brilliantly. They are fantastic and professional craftsmen and really the only company like them in the area.

Lynne Neilson

Wall Skimming and Decorative Cornice Restoration

City Crafts recently carried out wall skimming and decorative cornice restoration in my Edinburgh tenement flat. From start to finish they were professional, making two visits to discuss the work I wanted carried out and then 3 days to carry out the necessary work. Not only was the quote much less than I had envisioned, the finished article was beyond my expectation, fantastic. I also want to note that they left my living room exceptionally clean, possibly cleaner than it was before they started…very impressed!

Joni Macdonald

Excellent service

Excellent service and product choice displayed well in their showroom. We were pleased with all aspects of the service and delighted with our cornice and its fitting. Very impressed with the great care taken to protect the rest of the room while the installation took place. Highly recommend!

Liz Bryce

Long Curved Ceiling

First class job on challenging work- creating new ceiling with long curve at one side. Very skilled work done to perfection. Job was swiftly done, no mess. Plasterer polite, professional. Good communications with firm in setting up job. Was given big recommendation for this firm by Quantity surveyor and Fireplace designer. Didn’t disappoint.

Rona Somerville

Broken Cornice

I asked City Crafts to replace a broken piece of cornice. The join was done quickly, and the join is seamless. Excellent work.

Alistair Gray
