Project details - Hand Painted Cream Kitchen

Hand Painted Cream Kitchen – Horsforth, Leeds, West Yorkshire

This hand painted kitchen, which was originally oak, was thoroughly transformed and modernised by painting it cream. The clients got in touch as although the kitchen was good quality they now wanted the room to feel lighter and brighter. During the consultation we discussed various options, talked over the process and the specialist materials I use. Though I was booked up for the next 5 months they were very happy with everything I proposed and said they were happy to wait for the right man to do them an excellent job :-). Many kitchens can be ruined if the wrong process, materials and practices are used and being a kitchen painting specialist they recognised that waiting a couple of extra months to have their ‘new’ kitchen painted by a ‘Traditional Painter‘ would be well worth it. After all you spend a lot of time in a kitchen, seeing it up close and using it everyday so durability and the perfect finish is really really important.

Once the work was completed the clients were thrilled as I had surpassed their expectations. They were kind enough to email me this great testimonial –


“When we retired we decided to update the house and as we couldn’t face ripping out the old (20+ Years) kitchen units and replacing them with plastic lookalike ones we thought about having them painted!
They were light oak but still made the north facing kitchen feel dark, so a nice coat of paint was the answer!
We found Lee through his website and contacted him via email, sending him pictures of our kitchen and asking him if he was interested in doing the work.
He replied back almost immediately and arranged a date to come and talk to us, look at the kitchen units and give us a price!
Before he started we had a look at the colour chart and agreed on a beautiful light cream/white.
Did we say a “nice coat of paint”! Lee is a perfectionist and an artist who doesn’t just do the paint bit! He created a fabulous bespoke kitchen for us that I can’t believe is ours!
We would recommend Lee to create a wonderful job on any project! He left the kitchen immaculate!
The kitchen now is light and airy, thank goodness we had the work done and didn’t fall for replacing it!!”
