Replacing a kitchen can be an expensive option. Call a kitchen painter.

A new kitchen would be nice! Then you start looking around. The cost of replacement kitchens seems to run into more thousands than you anticipated, especially if you want good quality construction. The initial price of cabinets may seem reasonable, but when you opt for new appliances, and maybe a stone worktop, that is when the prices start to escalate.

Where the cost of a new kitchen fits in with your budget, it is best to make sure you understand the logistics and time for fitting. Even with an efficient fitting team, there is quite a bit of upheaval installing a new kitchen. Disconnecting water and power to remove your current cabinetry leaves you without a working kitchen. The cost of camping or eating out is never mentioned in the quote! And for how long depends on the joiners, plumbers and other fitters involved. It is a complicated logistical process even for professional kitchen companies.

A new kitchen was a step too far for his clients in Findon, and Mark stepped in with a very well conceived alternative. His service for hand painting the existing one was a fraction of the cost of new. And this is the result of taking that option.

Clean, tidy and new

It didn’t require an army of workmen and managers to prepare and hand paint this wooden kitchen to a showroom quality finish.

Mark can usually leave the kitchen operational over the course of the project. He uses dust extraction sanding kit to minimise any mess. Once he has prepared the doors, drawers and cabinets and tweaked hinges, he is ready for priming and painting. He uses the same paint systems preferred by the country’s premium hand painted kitchen manufacturers.

In other words, Mark can deliver a “new” kitchen with minimal fuss and a great paint finish.

Trade tip related to this type of painted kitchen

The wood was very knotty, so I used Zinsser BIN shellac primer for the first coats. Usually I would use Tikkurila Otex primer for softwoods.

Most pine or oak doors are coated with a clear lacquer that contains a stain blocker. As long as the lacquered surface is intact, any paint applied over the top will not be affected by the resin in the knots. However, knots can become problematic if the lacquer has worn away. This can occur either over years of use or during the sanding process. A shellac-based primer prevents any resin from discolouring the pigment in subsequent coats. Read all about stain Zinsser BIN.
