Painted Kitchen Chorleywood
This painted Smallbone kitchen Hertfordshire was constructed from oak 30 years ago by Smallbone of Devizes.
Lorna’s clients inherited the kitchen some 20 years ago when they purchased the property. It had served them well and was still structurally sound and in good working order. However, as with all oak over time… it becomes aged and yellows with sunlight, which makes it look quite dated.
The client had been discussing with a friend, the options of replacing the existing kitchen, as the friend was replacing theirs. The thought of all the upheaval and cost of replacement prompted them to search for alternatives, not to mention the sacrilege of ripping out such beautiful oak cabinetry and sending it to landfill. The existing black quartz worksurfaces were still in impeccable condition and the units were solid in construction, as you would expect from a Smallbone production, despite its age!
The clients on-line research brought up several companies offering hand painted and spray painted kitchens in the area. However, Lorna’s skill set, experience and knowledge, stood out from the crowd and she was commissioned for this painted smallbone kitchen Hertfordshire, to revive it and add life back into this timeless classic from Smallbone of Devizes.

With an abundance of “specialist kitchen painters” out there for you to choose from, it can prove to be a bit of a minefield when choosing the right person for your project. Of course you want the work to be done as quickly and effectively as possible… but be mindful of those who will come along and spray paint your kitchen within a timescale of one or two days or those who will hand paint it in 4 days! Realistically this is possible but definitely not the right way or approach.
Lorna has invested time and effort into fine tuning her craft… a kitchen like this can take two days to prepare, before she even thinks about getting the brushes out. Meticulous preparation is key! Lorna will also discuss colour options with you beforehand and create a mood board in contrast with your other surfaces, so that you get a feel for the whole transformation. This painted Smallbone kitchen Hertfordshire was painted in the equivilent colour to Farrow and Ball Light Blue, No’22.
For the finishing touches to your new look painted wooden kitchen cabinets you have the option to have new handles and knobs. If you are wanting a different size or style, Lorna can fill the existing holes and re-drill for the new… giving you endless options to enjoy. These particular handles and knobs were supplied from Hafele.
