Oak painted kitchen in St Albans, Hertfordshire

Kitchen cabinet painter St Albans

I received a call early 2017 from a lady in St Albans, Hertfordshire. She explained that her kitchen was a well made oak kitchen, but was unsure as to wether it could be painted. I made a site visit to discuss her options and it was firstly decided that the kitchen would be perfect to finish in a grey tone to complement her colour scheme. Kitchen cabinet painter St Albans

An explanation was given of the process and furthermore how the doors would be completed in my workshop. This proved to be a deal clincher as she was especially concerned about the upheaval. The kitchen was still operational during the entire process!

Many wooden kitchens that are that are painted by me are more often than not completed in this way. This ensures a smooth transition from wood to painted with the least amount of disruption to the homeowners.

The usual protection, degreasing and preparation was applied. This is an essential part of the process that removes any contaminants from the surface, allowing a good adhesion with the primer and the top coats. All kitchens are finished by hand and I cant stress enough that brushmarks are non existent. This is down to the meticulous preparation and the use of good brushes. kitchen painter st albans

The kitchen once painted was a real transformation. Reflective light and a crisp clean finish. The pewter handles were cleaned before being refitted. The client was thrilled with the finish. A 20 year old kitchen looking a good as new!

These kitchens never fail to surprise me with how well they actually look once completed. A real alternative to replacing perfectly good cabinets without the cost and upheaval involved with a full kitchen replacement.

After making a few alignments to the drawers and and also a few of the doors, the kitchen was complete!

If you are considering having your kitchen painted as above. Please contact me!  The costs are minimal for such a transformation. All I need are some photos of the kitchen so I can forward on a full and concise quote.
