Kitchen Cabinet Painter Hertfordshire
Kitchen Cabinet Painter Hertfordshire is Paul Barber who carried out the re-painting of this bespoke kitchen in Harpenden. The town itself is in the City and District of St Albans but in the County of Hertfordshire, with a population of over 30,000 Harpenden is a commuter town, with a direct rail connection through Central London and property prices well over double the national average.
Harpenden has been home to many a celebrity over the years, from singers and musicians to international footballers such as Jack Wilshere and former spurs player Tim Sherwood. Even John Motson the football commentator lived here.
Project: Hand Painted Kitchen
There is no running commentary here but I shall talk you briefly through the stages our specialist kitchen painter Paul Barber goes through when he’s carrying out a hand painted kitchen.
Paul is like everyone here at Hand Painted Kitchens UK (HPKUK) and shares the same philosophy of taking tired looking wooden kitchens and transforming them back into stunning, showroom quality and functional centre pieces that sit at the heart of the home. All are dedicated to ensuring that every hand painted kitchen or sprayed kitchen they create is never anything short of exceptional, working together with clients until they are completely satisfied that their dream kitchen vision has been achieved.
Firstly when a client gets in touch with us via email, we initally ask for photographs of the kitchen showing all of the doors & draws and areas to be painted. From this we are able to give an online quote and if your happy with the quote, we can book you a date in the diary. This particular kitchen is a great advert for what we do on a daily basis, the customers are happy with the build and layout of their kitchen furniture, it just needed updating.
Kitchen cabinet painting process
Once we arrive on site, we start by numbering and taking off the doors and draws. These are then taken back to the workshop to be thoroughly de-greased, prepped and painted. As this causes a lot less disruption for the customer, also it’s beneficial to producing a first class painted finish to the door or draw when it’s flat on a bench with good lighting in a dust free environment.
Your existing worktops and flooring will be masked and protected prior to any prep work or painting commencing in your home. We go through the same rigorous de-grease/clean down on all the kitchen furniture every kitchen we paint, it’s definitely one of the most important parts of any kitchen painting project Next step is the preparation and sanding, we use dust free equipment so that helps a lot to keep the dust to a minimum, the prep work on each individual kitchen varies, from oak, pine, maple wood to vinyl wrap and mdf, or repaints on existing painted kitchens. If we are carrying out all of the work in-situ we have portable racking systems to keep disruption and working space to a minimum. However, we can take all the doors and draws off site, back to our workshop.
We have a deep understanding of painting kitchen cabinets and all the products, paints and materials to use to deliver a suburb hand painted kitchen. Our preparation is very thorough and meticulous with a special high grip adhesion primer used which adheres to the substrate This gives an excellent base coat to be followed by undercoats and two top coats of specialist furniture paint in the colour of your choice. Once our specialist kitchen and furniture paint fully cures the end result is a durable, hard-wearing showroom Painted Kitchen.
