For this hand painted kitchen project I travelled to Halifax, West Yorkshire. Using my tried and tested hand painted finish I transformed this beech laminate kitchen, creating a bespoke space that looked much more contemporary, airy and bright. Whether your kitchen is oak, pre-painted, laminate or lacquered, all my work and preparation is done to the highest standards using only the best materials and practices.
From the thorough masking off all worktops, flooring and appliances, to the thorough preparation and use of advanced paint systems and techniques, I can create a smooth and highly durable finish that will transform your existing kitchen, all at a fraction of the price of replacing it.

Client 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
This particular laminate kitchen painting was all about creating a new, brighter look. The cabinets had been installed when the development was built, and since that time tastes have changed. The clients felt they now wanted a more up to date look as the room feel dark and beech cabinets dominated the space rather than complimenting it.
The units were well made and the layout perfect for their needs, so rather than going down the much more costly route of replacement, they looked for a ‘specialist kitchen cabinet painter in Yorkshire’ and found my website.
The clients contacted me by phone and after sending me some photos I sent back my detailed estimate by return. During the consultation itself, I explained in more detail 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 truly bespoke look. The central wine racks and the area above the sink were all painted in a mid charcoal colour (see images below). As the project developed and I began painting I felt that it would be good to add some line detailing on the drawers to further add to the overall balance of the scheme.
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.
There’s a lot that goes into specialist kitchen painting if your creating a smooth and durable show room quality finish. To many, hand painting seems to be synonymous with brush marks and this really doesn’t need to be the case. With the right products, the right skills, attention to detail and patience, a hand painted finish can be smooth, without a bobble in sight. It also has the advantage over most spraying as it hugs the contours of the doors rather than smoothing them out and offers a finish that doesn’t look plastic or synthetic.
The pictures below show the sections that were painted in a different colour, a deep charcoal that complimented the main colour and added that certain je ne sais quoi 🙂
