Kitchen rescue project in Henley on Thames

This client contacted me back in 2023 with regards to fixing their kitchen! The kitchen itself was ok, it just needed a really good re paint and also to ease and fix some of the issues that the client was having with it.

The photos below are what the client had sent to me along with some brief notes about some of the issues. Kitchen cabinet painter Henley

Kitchen rescue first day onsite

On first inspection, it was evident that a suitable primer was not used, furthermore, the factory primer was showing through. This primer is not really suitable for the products that I use, so needs to be primed/undercoated. Kitchen cabinet painter Henley

Before I removed the doors and drawers, each component was checked to make sure it was fitting ok, this also should be addressed prior to removal. A few drawers were sticking and not closing properly and the dishwasher had become loose and was moving around within the opening.

I found a couple of fixings in my kit and re fixed the dishwasher and eased up and also adjusted some of the drawers. Kitchen cabinet painter Henley


Once back in the workshop the prep could begin! A clean down of any food residues and a good fill and sand to get them back to a clean sound, even surface.

My products of choice when undertaking projects like this is by Tikkurila. I have used these products for many years and helped with the introduction of them at Mark Wilkinson.

On completion of the doors and also the onsite frames and panels, the doors and drawers were re fitted. This is when the new kitchen starts to come back to life.

The colour on this particular kitchen was a colour that was similar to Hague Blue, slightly greyer in tone. Kitchen cabinet painter Henley
