Kitchen cabinet painter Hertfordshire

Kitchen cabinet painter Stevenage Hertfordshire: A client contacted me from Old Stevenage in Hertfordshire with regards to painting her kitchen. This kitchen was also made by Planet of Hitchin and was subsequently installed approximatley 10 years ago. A stunning mixture of painted furniture and solid walnut breakfast bar gave a showreem feel to this absolutely stunning kitchen. hand painted kitchen stevenage

The original paintwork was in oil eggshell. I decided on a good adhesion primer followed by two coats of Tikkurila helmi 10. This was also a very close match in the level of sheen to the eggshell. hand painted kitchen stevenage

The walnut flooring and granite worktops were also protected with corrugated cardboard. Essentially, the kitchen was always accessible to use as the client had a young family. I always try to accommodate the use of the kitchen during painting as its the hub of most households. hand painted kitchen stevenage

The drying rack was essential on this project. All doors and drawer fronts were removed to give a much crisper finish. I try to place the rack were it is not in the way. On this occasion it was in a dining area that was not being used.

Preparation

The oil based finish had lasted well and was well finished. It had been sprayed in the factory, so my aim was to replicate the level of finish. This was achieved using good preparation, good quality tools and degree of knowledge with the product (Paint).

Without a doubt, the festool sanding system proved invaluable. This kept dust to an absolute minimum and gave a great base for the adhesion primer.

Another item that always seems to trouble some furniture painters is the removal of glass. I always try to find a way to remove it during painting as it gives a much neater finish. Undoubtedly better if there is a colour change.hand painted kitchen stevenage

The colour (Dulux southern shadow equivalent) was a great choice with the walnut and made the room bright and fresh. Several adjustments were made to the drawers and some doors hinges had packers put in to even out the gaps. hand painted kitchen stevenage

Overall, a beautiful kitchen in this stunning part of Hertfordshire.
