Kitchen Cabinet Painting Skipton
For this kitchen painting project I travelled to the beautiful market town of Skipton. Painting this kitchen was one of those projects that was an utter pleasure to do, the clients had done their research, knew what was involved, and after having found my website, were confident I could offer them the finish they wanted for their kitchen. The cabinets were oak, bespoke, and beautifully made, but made the room feel dark and a dated.
During the consultation I explained the processes and specialist products I use, and how smooth and durable the finish is. Hand painting seems to be synonymous with brush marks for some reason and this really doesn’t need to be the case. With the right products, the right skills, and patience, a hand painted finish can be smooth and even without a brush mark or bobble in sight. It also has the advantage over spraying as it doesn’t look ‘plasticy’ or mass produced.
During my initial visit we also looked at colours which proved to be quite tricky due to the very specific colour of the range and the changing natural and artificial light in the room. As things developed the clients decided they also wanted me to paint the walls, the skirting’s, the radiator, the main door and the pantry door so that the whole kitchen got a complete make-over. The final colours chosen complimented the range perfectly, with the main units being painted in an equivalent to Farrow & Ball’s ‘Savage Ground‘, the glass fronted alcoves and wine rack painted in F&B’s ‘Light Grey, and the walls, skirting’s, radiator and other doors painted in a F&B’s ‘Bone’.
This project was a real pleasure to do, not only because it was a fabulous transformation but also because the clients really appreciated all that went into me achieving the level of finish I did. After completion they were kind enough to email me this lovely testimonial.
‘Just a few words of thanks for the refurbished kitchen. We really have appreciated the quality of the finish you achieved with our tired units. During our consultation we were pleased at the time taken and your attention to detail. The colour advise turned out to be the perfect choice for our job. We had a lengthy wait for you to get started. With such a long waiting list we figured it had to be worth it. This proved to be well founded as we are delighted with the final outcome. From the consultation, preparation (2 weeks of sanding and priming) and finally topcoats we knew it was the correct choice. Thanks so much for the transformation. The kitchen is like brand new…if not better!!!!!’
