About Paul Ian Barber

After leaving school at 16 I soon decided to follow in my father's footsteps to train as a Master Painter & Decorator. My father, Traditional Painter specialist, Paul C Barber, has been at the top of his profession for over 40 years and has trained me to the same very high standards of workmanship.

I attended Moulton college of technology in Northamptonshire for two years full time and achieved NVQ level 2 qualification.
I have now worked along side my Father for over 18 years specializing at hand painting kitchens across the shires. I have carried out the hand painting to 100s of bespoke kitchens including manufacturers like Smallbone, Mark Wilkinson, Harvey Jones, Nicholas Bell & Christchurch Kitchens Direct.

I also re-paint custom-made kitchens, and refurbish well made but tired Natural Oak, Pine & Maple kitchens & fitted furniture , with hand painted finishes.

Please plan your kitchen painting project on the basis of approximately 12 weeks' lead time. We pride ourselves on our customer service and we will not over promise. Obviously if there is a cancellation or gap in the schedule, you may be offered an earlier start date, but ordinarily, we are booking about 12 weeks in advance.

About Traditional Painter specialists

In the unlikely event of a complaint about our workmanship, clients will be referred to our 2-step complaints procedure.

If we are unable to provide a satisfactory resolution in-house, consumers will be referred (at no cost) to the Dispute Resolution Ombudsman which is independent and impartial.

Property owners, designers and kitchen companies looking for a reliable craftsman should be aware that all of the kitchen painters and fitters associated with Traditional Painter are independent specialists and are listed on Traditional Painter by invitation only, having demonstrated to myself and their peers that they are highly skilled and experienced craftsmen who know what they are doing. They are also one or two-man teams and share the values and drive for excellence promoted on the site. None have paid a fee to list their services.

As you will see on each profile page, the specialists have also provided additional information to demonstrate to potential clients that they are bona fide businesses. Plus, in addition to their own Terms and Conditions, each member has agreed to follow a general Code of Practice. Ordinary tradesmen they are not.

You are welcome to contact Paul at any time, for general information or for an answer to specific questions you might have about your kitchen or furniture painting project: the order of any renovation works, the options for paint finishes, spray v hand-painted etc.

I can also give you guideline prices for any kitchen painting work, for budgeting purposes, however the best person to talk to about a fixed price quote, specifications and arrangements is the Traditional Painter specialist nearest you, via that unmissable contact button above!
