Hand painted oak kitchen in Great Denham, Bedfordshire.

Kitchen cabinet painter great denham Bedfordshire

It’s quite rare for me to paint an oak kitchen of this size; the cabinets and layout were exceptional, promising outstanding results.

During a colour consultation with the client, we selected shades from the Mylands palette. I had these colours closely matched by Holmans in Tikkurila Helmi.

The process involved a thorough cleaning and sanding using Festool, followed by priming with Isofix tinted to the final colours, and careful tacking off between coats.

Hand painted oak kitchen great denham BedfordshireIts all about getting more light!

It’s worth mentioning that prior to painting, the kitchen was absorbing all the light from the room. Large kitchens can significantly contribute to light deprivation. Painting this kitchen was a decision that would dramatically transform this wonderful home. The expense of replacing such a large kitchen exceeded £60,000.

The kitchen, having absorbed much of the natural light, became rather dark. Opting for a neutral shade would result in a resounding success for the redecoration of this Bedfordshire kitchen.

Stacking the doors

While painting, I utilised an Erecta-Rack and covered worktops for drying the doors of a 64-door kitchen. After investing in a second rack, I am now considering the purchase of a third, which has proven to be an invaluable asset in kitchen painting.

The final outcome is striking, with the island’s contrasting colour, newly installed pewter knobs, and an abundance of reflected light. The transformation of the room from before to after is truly remarkable!
