Fantastic Refurbishment

Aug 20, 2015 by Mr & Mrs Sunley

Fantastic refurbishment
Aug 19, 2015 by Linda Sunley

Our kitchen layout was one we wanted to keep but as it was 16years old we felt an upgrade was long overdue. After having new worktops and tiling completed, we had Paul come in and renovate the oak units by hand painting them. His advice on colours was invaluable and his professionalism was second to none. I would certainly recommend Paul as our kitchen looks just like a brand new very expensive one. Paul is courteous, friendly and keeps you up to date on what he is doing.
Thank you Paul.

Our solid pine kitchen was looking a little dated and Paul has just painted the units and has done an excellent job. He has given our kitchen a new lease of life and we are delighted. We would recommend Paul to anyone. ...

What a transformation
Apr 07, 2015 by Susan Tusting

Paul has wonderfully transformed our very tired Bells kitchen which was almost 20 years old. His preparation and painting of the doors is superb and the finished results are outstanding. Choosing the door colours was the hardest job we had to do and with the new handles it truly is a new kitchen. We also had coloured glass splashbacks and LED lighting installed which completed the transformation.What a transformation

Leaving the framework in oak,we think that the finished results are OUT-STANDING, as do our family and friends, we can thoroughly recommend Paul for a kitchen refurbishment,he is considerate, polite and very professional and does "What It Says On The Tin"
!!! Thanks Paul, Margaret And John.

Hand Painted Walnut Kitchen

Kitchen transformation

I had an oak kitchen in good condition but dated and not what I wanted. Changing the units wasn't an option due to cost.
However it would have been money wasted.
Paul has hand painted my units and I now have the kitchen of my dreams for a fraction of the cost.
If you've never thought of doing this, well consider it seriously.
It is truly amazing what good quality paint and Paul's skill can achieve.
I can't stop smiling.
Thankyou so much Paul

Paul has just finished painting our tired walnut kitchen and what a transformation! It looks like a brand new kitchen - totally transformed! We are thrilled with the result and already we have had lots of great comments from friends. Paul has done an amazing job - professional from start to finish, attention to detail right the way through and he has brought our tired kitchen back to life. It definitely has the 'wow factor' now and the finish and overall effect is just what we were looking for. Thank you so muc

Paul has recently finished updating our custom - built,wooden kitchen units. A professional job from start to finish, including painting our old wooden chairs.We are delighted with the result - the standard of work is excellent and it was finished on time which was very important as we had a family wedding the
following week. We would highly recommend him.

When faced with the prospect of spending a small fortune to replace our fairly large oak kitchen with something brighter and modern, Thankfully i found Paul on the Traditional Painter website and asked him to have a look, from that point on the advice service and quality workmanship we have received has been outstanding, Paul is a very pleasent and flexable person and has quite simply transformed our kitchen for a faction of the cost,s I could have been faced with.
