Project details - Hand Painted Oak Laminate Kitchen

Hand Painted Oak Laminate Kitchen, Harrogate

This hand painted oak laminate kitchen was a great transformation and a lovely and rewarding project to do. The clients had some prettty big changes in mind for their kitchen and contacted me about the final stage – a quality hand painted finish. They were very keen to get a high end finish for their units, realising that it wouldn’t matter how good all the other changes were if the final paint finish was lacking.

After all, you can spend a lot of money on a revamping your kitchen with new worktops, tiles and appliances, but if the final paint finish isn’t done with care and attention it simply won’t look that good. The doors and drawers were limed oak laminate, a style and colour that was looking a little dated and certainly didn’t gel with their plans for a new, more modern looking kitchen.

As you can see from the photo above, the end result looks fantastic, with the whole kitchen having a much more stylish and modern look. In the end an equivalent to The Little Greene Company’s ‘Mizzle‘ was chosen. This a beautiful soft sage green and worked wonderfully with the slate tones in the floor and the new black granite work tops. The clients were over the moon with my results and kindly wrote this testimonial –


“We can highly recommend Lee following the recent refurbishment of our kitchen. His help and advice were greatly appreciated and his skill and attention to detail are very evident in the finished product.” Mrs F, Harrogate
