Hand Painted Beech Kitchen

Project details - Hand Painted Beech Kitchen

Hand Painted Beech Kitchen – Halifax

I undertook this hand painted kitchen project in a private house in Halifax. The kitchen itself was made of beech and was the original one that had been installed when the development was built. Since then tastes and fashions have changed and the clients felt they now wanted a more up to date look for their kitchen. Though the room itself had plenty of light the original units made it feel dark and tended to dominate the space rather than blend in.

The kitchen was well made and the layout perfect for their needs so rather than going down the much more costly route of replacement, they were set on having it hand painted by a ‘Traditional Painter’.

In order to minimise any disruption for the clients I only spent 5 days on site and then continued to prepare and paint the drawer fronts and units in my workshop, returning to re-hang them a week and a half later. As with all the kitchens I paint, preparation and attention to detail are the key. During the consultation I explained the tried and tested processes I employ and the specialist paints I use. I also suggested adding a second colour to some areas which would not only add to the aesthetics but also give it a truely bespoke look. The central wine racks and the area above the sink were all painted in a mid charcoal colour, with the line detailing on the drawers being highlighted as the project evolved.

As you can see from the pictures above the transformation was pretty dramatic. The room felt instantly lighter and the exact same units looked completely modern and stylish. The clients were over the moon with the results and were kind enough give me this testimonial –

 

‘Thanks for our Kitchen transformation – it is superb! Your meticulous attention to detail is great. Our end-to-end experience was ‘mess-free’ and this really helped us to continue with our busy family lifestyle whilst you were rejuvenating our Kitchen. Thanks again – We love it!’ Mrs F, Halifax
