Painted Kitchen Knaresborough

This painted kitchen project was just on the outskirts of Knaresborough, very near my hometown of Harrogate in North Yorkshire. If you live near Knaresborough and are interested in having your pine kitchen painted then please get in touch, I’d be happy to discuss your project.

I was initially emailed by the clients who had visited my website and seen the similar kitchens I have painted. They explained that they wanted to have their kitchen painted rather than replacing it, as it was great quality but was over 25 years old and looking worn and dated. Painting would certainly provide a completely new look without the faff of researching, buying and installing a new one.

Barrie kindly emailed me some photographs, and I sent my estimate by return. We then arranged a consultation so that I could see the kitchen in person. At first glance it looked very well made, though looking through a ‘painters’ eye’ I could see there would be a fair amount of prep work required as there were significant gaps around all the beading, the surface varnish was uneven and there were lots of knots, dings, scratches that would need attention. There would also be some joinery work required which could be undertaken by Colin Foggin (Tel: 07931 430 849), a joiner I work closely with on many kitchen painting projects.

For the colour, The Little Greene Company’s ‘Rolling Fog’ was chosen, a lovely warm browny grey colour that I had accurately tinted to the equivalent shade in my specialist kitchen paint from Finland.

I started the project by removing all the cabinetry hardware, handles, doors and drawers, which were then taken back and completed in my workroom. As you can see from the pictures above, the amount of preparation was indeed sizable, with a lot of filling, sealing and sanding required throughout every preparation stage. It was time well spent though, there can’t be any shortcuts and if a jobs worth doing, it’s worth doing really well.

With all the many stages completed, the doors and drawers rehung, and new handles attached, the new look kitchen was a far cry from the original. With and a smooth and durable paint finish that will last for many years to come, the kitchen had been transformed, making the whole room feel lighter, brighter and much more contemporary.
