The Benefits of a Hand Painted Kitchen

At the refurbished Kitchen Company we  hand paint our painted kitchens because it brings out the depth and natural texture that you cannot achieve by spray painting. It carries the resonance of tradition and craftsmanship, conveying a tangible link to the past when quality was handmade and not a factory process.

Another  benefit of a hand painted kitchen is that any areas of damage can easily be touched up or the whole kitchen repainted. Painted kitchens are tough and durable but dogs chewing them or small boys driving their bikes into them will leave even the toughest finish with indelible reminders. We can repair the small defects and do those minor adjustments where doors or drawers have expanded, twisted and warped, even supply new one’s to match.  You can choose to either freshen it up or change the colour all together. 

We use Fired Earth paints, created in collaboration with Kevin McCloud, designer, author and leading authority on colour, is made from carefully selected pigments, minerals and resins specifically chosen for their qualities of opacity, density, light fastness and durability. Developed with the environment in mind, with Minimal or Low solvent content (VOC's), these water-based paints are available in 120 colours in Matt Emulsion and Eggshell finishes. Providing exceptional coverage, the paints are practical, hardwearing and are virtually odourless.  

Simon Buhl Davis, of Savills Interiors says "A hand-built wooden Shaker kitchen will have enduring appeal and stand the test of time", "With the current economic situation people need all the comforting they can get, something warm and cosy, that Shaker ethic: simplicity, utility and quality. It’s a much safer option than putting in a modern kitchen that’s hot now, but that will look out of date in five years."

Choosing a to have your kitchen hand painted means that you can have your kitchen in any colour imaginable, the latest shade in a contemporary palate or a traditional or even historical paint shade. You can get the colour to match the kitchens featured in the magazine shoots, or the one your neighbour down the road  has just spent several thousands of pounds on for a fraction of the cost of a new kitchen.  

A hand painted kitchen is also hard-wearing and durable enough to deal with family life.  We can style your kitchen with new colours, new handles even add extra matching cupboards to your original kitchen if you would like to incorporate some more storage space.
