Painted Kitchen Nether Wasdale
This painted kitchen Nether Wasdale in the Lake District is a solid wood kitchen built by a local craftsman in this picturesque hamlet. The new owners of the house Andy and Ann decided the kitchen was too imposing in this Cumbrian cottage as it didn’t have much natural light and was in need of a lift. After looking at various options, they decided on hand painting the existing kitchen and following an internet search, they found us at HPKUK
