Lining paper is a kitchen painter’s (and homeowner’s) godsend when it comes to protecting floors and worktops. Impervious to paint, dust is easily removed, reusable… Perfect example of a small touch making a big difference.

There is usually little problem with replacing hinges, tweaking runners, checking that drawers will fit after they have been painted. All part of making sure the small details are taken care of.
