All of the kitchens we do we’ve not come across one that we can not paint as yet! This Oak kitchen was no different. This was fairly straight forward enough a simple on frame square style door. The only thing wrong with was the colour. Dark Oak kitchens just sap all the light in a kitchen. Most of the time you tend to need lights on. By painting the units a lighter colour this gives the room a real lift. Looking at the wall tiles they were of a taupe colour so the colour that fit best was Dimity from the F&B collection.
On to the job of painting
Like all the kitchens we do, firstly we remove all the handles and protect all the floor, worktops, appliances, before a thourough clean & degrease followed by a light sand to matt the surface. All the filling up is done before we start to sand, also the gaps between the carcases are gunned up as well as moving handles if needed.
With Oak kitchens it a must to use the correct primer. Use the wrong one and it can cause tannins to bleed through the final painted finish. The finish coat we use are always waterborne, these provide the toughest finish thats around today. They dry quick, in addition to this they don’t change colour as dramaticly as oil paints overtime. Now we have a kitchen that is so much lighter as well as blending in with the wall tiles.
