Kitchen painted in Caldy Wirral
Traditional Painter, Mark Roberts, shares this beautiful kitchen painted in Caldy Wirral.
When husband and wife team, Mark and Hayley, start a kitchen like this, they know that the transformation will be spectacular.
Having painted so many kitchens, it is easy for them to visualise the end result. In contrast, most clients are genuinely taken aback – in a good way!
Colour selection is always a nervy step. Kitchens are functional workspaces, and social centres, so it pays to make the kitchen light and bright. In a particularly dark kitchen like this, the natural urge for many clients is to go for a light white. However, the advice is: when you consider the amount of light a wall or walls of natural wood kitchen doors absorb, your paint can be very deep before you darken a space further.
Mark and Hayley knew that by the end of the project, their clients were going to be blown away by the transformation. This is how a 4-coat job specification looks, with topcoats of Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray Scuff-X eggshell.
When a large natural wooden kitchen is finished, the clients’ reaction is nearly always along the lines of: “I didn’t know it would look this good“. or “What a transformation!” This was no different!
I was contemplating having a new kitchen but decided to go with the painting option. I’m so glad I did, feels like I have a new kitchen! Excellent service, immaculate work, I would definitely recommend Mark – traditional painter.
If, like most of the world, you have been looking at your kitchen cabinets a lot over the last 12+ months, you might think it needs a revamp. Even in these unsettling times, it is still a very affordable option to employ a professional of the calibre of Mark to transform your kitchen with a showroom quality finish .

PS A neat piece of equipment from Festool
Mark is very well equipped, and would probably give most carpenters a run for their money in terms of kit! On this job the Festool working light was essential, as part of the kitchen was quite dark. To be precise, he used the Syslite Duo-plus 240V with tripod.
Shadows may create a visually interesting ambience, but they are not a kitchen painter’s friend. As these pictures from a previous work light review show, the LED lighting is a game changer when working in darkened corners.
And in the depths of winter, there is never any need to stop working early because of poor light. Investment in good kit pays for itself many times over. This is the mantra of Traditional Painter since the blog for trade tips launched back in 2009.
