Painting a Maple kitchen in Hitchin, Hertfordshire

Kitchen cabinet painter Hitchin Hertfordshire

Many calls or enquiries that I receive are from prospective clients who are looking to update their kitchen with a view to selling their property.

A prime example was from this lady in Hitchin who had a beautiful Maple kitchen in need of updating. During a site visit we talked about colour options, sheen level and durability. All questions were clearly answered and furthermore a date was set to start the work.

Using safe products in your home

Importantly one of the major concerns from the client was the paint fumes as her child had a couple of allergies. I explained that I use waterborne products which only have trace VOC’s. This without a doubt put her mind at rest and the work started. Kitchen cabinet painter Hitchin Hertfordshire

As you can see from the photos below it is also a great layout and blends well with this grade 2 listed property. Kitchen cabinet painter Hitchin Hertfordshire

Another added benefit on this project was that the doors and drawers were completed of site in my workshop. This is indeed a huge benefit to the client and minimises disruption.

Firstly I always make a decision on day 1 as to which adhesion primer I use. I chose a specific one which would give me maximum adhesion to this lacquered maple kitchen.

The usual prep was applied, de greasing, dustless sanding and filling/ Each layer was finely sanded to provide the mechanical key for each application..

The results speak for themselves! These re finishing projects never fail to surprise me at the amount of reflected light that can be achieved.

The client was kind enough to forward the photos that were taken for the sale advert. and show just what can be achieved if the work is done right!

The kitchen is now a bright vibrant area. As this is in a cottage and the ceilings are quite low, a degree of space is added, purely by the use of the right colours.

Overall, another kitchen transformed at a fraction of the cost to replacement.

Message from the client

The lady sent a few kind words along with the photos.

Hi Chris
