Refurbish a kitchen in Bridgend South Wales
Refurbish a kitchen in Bridgend South Wales, Matt Evans, Traditional Painter explains an interesting project that transformed a home.
If you have a well fitted, good quality kitchen in your home, similar to this oak example in Bridgend (between Cardiff and Swansea), then it would be unwise to replace everything – it really is not necessary.
This solid oak kitchen has been working perfectly well for a number of years, but it has turned a shade of orange that makes the room look tired and dated.
The clients asked about a painted finish and replacement of the handles, something to make it look more modern. This was entirely possible and in my mind’s eye I could see the kitchen transformed, ready to give many more years of service for a fraction of the cost of replacing with a similar quality new kitchen today.
It was decided strip and refinish the over mantle, in order to retain some of the wood.
The island unit were painted a shade of green to compliment the soft furnishings in the kitchen and adjoining lounge.
The main units were finished with a designer creamy off-white with the new handles attached.
I’m sure you’d agree that the room has been transformed.
Little known fact
A little discussed advantage of my kitchen refurbishment service is that once a well made older wooden kitchen has had the correct preparation and been finished to my high standards, the whole re-paint process will be a lot easier in the future.
For instance, the units are unlikely to need replacing for many years, making it perfectly feasible to allow for a game-changing change of colour, or even have a glaze or distressed finish applied to the existing finish in a few years’ time. I can do this efficiently and cost-effectively: less time = less cost.
In other words, this approach, when done correctly, of course, on a decent wooden kitchen, really is a good investment.
