Kitchen painting in the E Midlands
Mac Devereux has been Kitchen painting in the E Midlands for many years, the last 3 years as a member of Traditional Painter. Below are some examples of transformations completed in the areas he covers for Traditional Painter: Leicestershire, Nottingham, and Derbyshire.
Polished units repainted in Little Greene “Whiteing”
Mac paints all manner and size and style of kitchens. This is an example of the larger kitchens he works on.
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.
Once the polish was removed, there was a super base to paint in a durable eggshell sheen.
One of the big advances in decorating has been how merchants can offer accurate colour matching across brands. Painters can therefore specify the paint they think will do the job best, in the exact colour the client wants. Another small detail that offers great advantages for all concerned.
Oak painted kitchen
This is a prime example of how to uplift a kitchen.
Thorough preparation is essential, using dust extraction sanders. The first coats are important too, therefore high adhesion primers are usually the first paints out the van. Followed by durable topcoats…
Old pine kitchen
The old ones can be the best. Well constructed pine units like this can last decades if maintained.
Here you can see the old maxim in action: “paint gives kitchens a new lease of life.” The right paint applied by a knowledgeable kitchen painter helps a lot!
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.
