How we paint your kitchen...

Prepping and painting a kitchen is not a job for your average painter/decorator.  The work is incredibly repetitive and requires high levels of concentration and determination to maintain standards and attention to detail from start to finish.  It's not a job that can be completed over a few hours or days - if it is, it won't last.


We can hand-paint any kitchen i.e. dark oak, knotted orange pine, re-paint previously painted kitchens or paint new, pre-primed or bare MDF/tulip wood kitchens.  Once prepped and primed with specialist products, a beautiful and durable traditional hand-painted matt, eggshell, satin or gloss finish is applied.


  • Both sides and edges of doors and drawers are cleaned, primed and painted 
  • All pelmets, cornices, plinths, end panels and frames are cleaned, primed and painted
  • For glazed units, the interiors are often painted.  They can be picked out in a different colour or left as wood to provide a natural contrast. 
  • Generally the insides of cupboards are not painted as they are usually veneered, laminated or oiled and provide a resilient surface.
