About US

Started in 1992: 

The company was started by Mark King as a painting company concentrating in apartment, condo, and townhouse complex interiors and exteriors. Later the company branched into residential re-paints, light commercial offices, and offered more painting services and techniques. We focus now primarily on residential re-paints for clients who are looking for professional, clean, reliable and trustworthy painters. However, feel free to inquire about your painting project as we will consider any job in the painting industry as long as we feel we have the qualifications to complete the job to the client's satisfaction.

More about the company:

The company offers color consultations for their clients and also works hand in hand with a client's current designer or decorator. We recommend using color samples of the actual painted color to choose colors for his client's homes, these samples are usually 18x24. We like to leave the samples with the client so they can tape it on the wall and see it at different times of the day and to put it on different walls in the room as well. We feel the small paint chips just aren't enough to get the true feel for a color the client is looking to use. We will and can match colors to fabrics, pillows, furniture, wall paintings and accents etc. We primarily use Benjamin Moore paints for interiors, but feel free to pick a color from any paint company as we can computer-match it into the correct product for your application.

We now offer paints that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Please inquire if you are interested in these types of products. We also specialize in painted stripes in a variety of sizes, colors and finishes. For more complex decorative finishes, however we recommend using a company that specializes in doing those types of finishes. We highly recommend "Roby Design House" out of Geneva, IL. Please feel free to ask us for their information. You can also find their info on our link page.


About the owner: 

The owner, Mark King, started painting while in high school. Throughout college (while earning a degree in Architectural design) and shortly after he worked for a small contractor who taught him all aspects of the painting trade including painting, staining, wall repairs, and much more. Over the years, Mark was able to fine-tune his painting skills and went out on his own. Mark has been on various job sites since he was a kid, as his grandfather was a general contractor who did numerous projects in downtown Chicago and its surrounding suburbs for over 40 years. He continues to strive for his client's satisfaction and is always looking to improve his knowledge of painting techniques in the ever-changing paint manufacturing industry. You will find that the crew size of MAK Decorating is usually between 2 and 5 employees. We are always trying to find the right people that will fit into our system and philosophy when it comes to being reliable, trustworthy and having good craftsmanship skills.
