Hand painted kitchens and furniture

I have been over 10 years in the trade and at Cabinet Painter, I specialise in hand painted kitchens as well as free standing and fitted furniture. I am equally at home refurbishing older cabinets, restoring well worn and sometimes re-purposed cabinetry, as well as painting new bespoke pieces.
I was brought up on old trade values, particularly with a focus on thorough preparation, which is the key to a long lasting finish.
Kitchen painting relies on sticking to systems and I am always on the look out for improved ways of working. One example is my investment in dust free sanding, which has taken preparation to a new level. The cleaner working conditions are obviously a huge bonus for my clients too. No dust or bitty paintwork here!
There is far more to my business than impeccable paint finishes, I am in the service industry and I believe it is imperative to offer the best customer service possible.
All my work is insured and guaranteed, I provide detailed quotations. If I think there are more practical or cost effective alternatives, I will let you know.
The painting industry as a whole has a fairly poor reputation, but rather than looking for short term gain, I build relationships with my clients and have much repeat work to show for it.
If you are in Exeter, Plymouth, Taunton or surrounding areas and have a project for a hand-painted kitchen or some painted furniture, please contact me and I will be happy to give you the benefit of my experience, and advise you on what is involved to achieve the end result you have in mind.Read articles by James
