I was contacted in the summer by a lady from Epping. She had tried to get in touch with Mark Wilkinson with regards to re painting it but they never came back to her. Painted Mark Wilkinson Kitchen Epping

Thankfully, the lady found me on Google by entering “mark wilkinson kitchen painter” where I ranked towards the top of page 1. It just so happened that I had painted this kitchen when it was originally installed approx 15 years ago. I only realised this when I turned up to do a consultation.

We discussed types of paint and colours that could be used. The lady decided to go with the original colour and paint which I happily agreed with.

These kitchens can be tricky if you are not familiar with them. The usual preparation and protection was carried out along with the refinishing and cleaning of the wooden handles that for part of this fantastic Etruscan design. Painted Mark Wilkinson Kitchen Epping

Several of the doors and drawers were catching on the frames which I adjusted and planed where necessary. Particular attention was required to the curved barrel unit on the island. Which was sticking so badly that it wouldn’t close properly.

The mixture 0f oak and painted furniture on this classic design still look fantastic after 15 years. Good design will never date and this particular kitchen is testament to that. Painted Mark Wilkinson Kitchen Epping

The clients were able to use the kitchen throughout the re painting process. This is of particular importance to me so as to keep disruption to an absolute minimum. The dustless sanding also helps!

On completion I gave the granite a clean with some triple effect. I also removed some limescale build up around the taps. These tiny little details make all the difference when finishing off. Small amounts of effort with great results.

These kitchens never fail to surprise me for their beauty and practicality. Being thorough is an absolute must in keeping these kitchens looking their best.

If you have a bespoke kitchen like the one above and are considering having it professionally painted then please contact me.

All I need are some photos like the ones above that show the cabinets and different runs so that I can count up all the doors and different components. I will then get a full and concise quote to you within 24hrs. I can also arrange for a colour card to be sent to you which will give you some ideas on colour.

Thanks for reading this short Blog.
