Period Home Restoration

Period home specialists

Is your house one of Melbourne’s treasured period homes?

It doesn’t matter if it’s Art Deco, Federation, Victorian, Georgian or Edwardian – or if you are trying to create a specific period look and feel with your home renovation. When you choose MJ Harris Painting, every detail and effort is taken to ensure that what you want is what you get.

Painting period homes is one of our specialties. We work with you right from the outset.  We listen to your needs, create an authentic period colour scheme and then consult with you again to make sure our vision is in line with what you had in mind. We won’t apply the first brush stroke of paint until we are confident that we will be creating the look and feel you want.

Everything you need in one

Since MJ Harris Painting is part of the full-service MJ Harris Group, we also have access to electrical and carpentry divisions who can take care of any required electrical maintenance or carpentry work. Often with period home restoration projects, timbers will need to be replaced or altered to fit in with the period look you are aiming to achieve. Our Melbourne carpenters can complete that work easily, without the need to bring other tradespeople onto the job for a higher expense.

For more extensive period home restoration or renovation projects involving both the interior and exterior, we can also bring in our team of Melbourne interior designers at MJ Harris Design. They will set up an in-home consultation with you at the outset of the project to go over ideas and put together a design proposal emulating the specific period style you are trying to emulate. Once the design proposal is approved, we can take care of all the interior painting, renovation and decoration, ensuring that the interior of your period home matches the exterior.

My wife and I have used M. J. Harris a number of times for painting and carpentry work and they have always done an excellent job at a good price.


The team were outstanding from the word go. Not only was their work of the highest quality but they are a group of really friendly and professional people.
