About Emma Brown

I started painting furniture in 1996 after I finished my Art Degree at Northampton University. I began working for my father, then started at a local kitchen design company called Bespoke Interiors, in the finishing department, painting, lacquering and oiling all the cabinets and work tops by hand.

Since then I have travelled to Australia twice, taught English, worked for Fired Earth as Colour Consultant, designed and hand drawn kitchens, yet never stopped painting kitchens and furniture. It is in my blood and now I am running my own one (wo)man business full-time.

I work for several local kitchen design companies, which still includes my father and Bespoke Interiors - some 17 years later! I use my experience, skills and trade contacts to offer a full package - from initial design and/or colour consultation and mood boards/drawings if needed, to fixing old cabinets, making new additions or replacing old worktops, before a full professional painting service transforms your kitchen or piece of furniture.

Please feel free to contact me by email or mobile and I will be more than happy to help you with your project, what ever you require.

Code of Practice

You should expect excellent customer service & superior quality workmanship from the specialists listed here. These are the standards that the Traditional Painter site is committed to promoting: Code of Practice.

Price guide

Ideally I prefer a site visit to give the most accurate quotation, which also means I can be more helpful if you need guidance on colours, work tops, or any repairs. But I can estimate pretty accurately from photos if that is an easier starting point. I then follow this up with a detailed quotation via email or post, breaking down all the costs and work involved. Prices will differ depending on your needs, but for example a one off repaint of a piece of furniture, such as a dresser, could start from £200, and an average sized kitchen could start from £750. Please get in contact though, as every project is unique, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Lead times / start dates

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.

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!
