Hand Painted Kitchens & furniture, specialist paint effects and faux finishes

I have specialised in painted kitchens for 30 years now covering Northamptonshire and much of Bedfordshire, Bucks and Hertfordshire. A. Bell & Co Ltd of Kingsthorpe are recognised as the leading bespoke kitchen company in Northamptonshire and I have hand-painted dozens of their new wooden kitchens over the past few years.
I also re-paint custom-made kitchens, and refurbish well made but tired natural oak, pine and maple kitchens and fitted furniture, with hand painted finishes.
38 years in the trade, I have worked all over the UK as a specialist kitchen hand painter and specialist paper hanger, on many prestigious projects, including various grade 1 & 2 listed properties.

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.
When upgrading your kitchen, this is actually a good period of time for you to complete any other works, upgrade appliances, choose colours etc in readiness for your kitchen painter... Thanks for your understanding.
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.

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 painting specialist nearest you, via that unmissable contact button above!
