Painted kitchen in Radlett
Paul painted our solid oak kitchen / diner and study and did an absolutely amazing job. He had a real eye for detail, neat and tidy and very organised. He respected our home like it was his own and fitted in his work around our needs. He also keep to the original timelines he had indicated. Our kitchen has been beautifully transformed and literally looks like a brand new bespoke kitchen. The transformation is just simply stunning. Paul was super professional right from the initial query through to finishing the job. He is a really nice person and an absolute star. It was a pleasure to have both him and his son, Paul Junior around working in our kitchen - both incredibly talented craftsman. Paul’s pricing was also very reasonable for the whole service offered. Once we had agreed to use Paul, he provided a number of samples of painted wood since whilst we were trying to make up our mind on the colours. He was always very responsive and would out samples quickly. His professionalism, dedicated and commitment to our project was impressive and rare to find these days. He truly enjoys his work and this comes through in the finish.
If you are looking to get your kitchen painted, simply get in touch with Paul and you will have a great experience and an amazing kitchen at the end of it!
Our kitchen cabinets although good quality were definitely looking the worse for wear - they’d been re-painted a couple of times (the last time inexpertly by us) and just looking tired. I cannot believe the transformation achieved by Paul Barber and his son. They took the doors away to their workshop and didn’t look like the same doors when they came back. I do not know how they achieve such a smooth finish - they look brand new without a brush stroke. The unit carcasses were obviously painted in situ but they didn’t make any mess and they look just as good. They also replaced handles and cleaned up the hinges, realigned the drawers and out new magnetic catches on doors. Paul also painted a Neptune unit and this looks showroom fresh too. Amazing
We did have to wait a few months as they are in demand and busy but Paul kept in touch and arrived when he said he would. They are very good company to have around too.
Highly recommended- my kitchen is transformed.
Oak Kitchen Furniture refurbishment
Everything We Wanted And More
Our light oak kitchen was 30 years old, looking tired and in need of an upgrade. Fortunately we found Paul who explained that we could paint the Kitchen in preference to replacing it with all the upheaval this entails. We looked at work he had carried out at Bell’s showroom in Northampton and was amazed at the finish he achieved.Paul repainted our units in the colour of our choice, it looks great and has completely transformed the kitchen, we are very pleased with the outcome. On a personal note Paul is totally trustworthy, reliable and a pleasure to have around, an absolute gem who we recommend without hesitation.
Blue Grey Kitchen
We have just had our tired oak kitchen cupboards painted by Paul Barber. We are delighted with the results.
The overall finish is of an exceptionally high quality, although it is handpainted it has the finish of new cupboards. On Paul's recommendation we chose a Benjamin Moore paint in a satin finish, which feels smooth to the touch.
Paul turned up each day on time, and worked steadily though the day. At the end of each day he left the kitchen clean and tidy and we were able to use the kitchen as normal.
Paul's attention to detail is excellent, from the overall finish to care with the placement of the new door knobs.
We would recommend him to anyone thinking of changing their kitchen cupboards with a hand finish.
Best improvement ever!
Whilst there was nothing really wrong with our kitchen, we wanted to move away from the boring wood and bring our units back to life. We couldn't warrant splashing out on a new kitchen and liked the current layout. Having researched the options I came across the Traditional Painter site which then led me to Paul Barber. My husband wasn't sure about having the kitchen hand painted, however as I had seen the case studies I felt absolutely confident in the process. We did have to wait a few months before Paul could come and paint the kitchen, however I took that as a positive. Paul was in demand! That meant he has to be good! And boy, he was more than good, he is great! He and his son, Paul, completed the most amazing renovation of my kitchen. We could not believe the finish! Hand painted surely must mean brush strokes being seen? Not at all, in fact the finish is so perfect my neighbours thought the kitchen had been sprayed! And it's not just the painting, drawer fronts which had become lose over the years were
rescrewed and doors realigned, I have basically a new kitchen. People are
truly amazed at the transformation and we are so delighted with the result. We cannot recommend Paul highly enough. Great workmanship, reliable, a perfectionist and great value for money without compromising quality. Highly recommend his work.

A great father and son team, who are top quality, expert Kitchen Painters. Our 27 year old 'limed oak' kitchen has been transformed and looks as good as new! Excellent workmanship, clean and tidy. All doors and drawer fronts re-fitted and adjusted perfectly. Started on agreed day and finished according to schedule. We highly recommend Paul C Barber Decorations if you want your kitchen finished to a superb standard.
