Painted Kitchen in Alderley Edge, Cheshire

Hand Painted Kitchen Alderley Edge Cheshire: In this article I explain how we changed a Maple Kitchen in Alderley Edge, into a painted kitchen in Alderley Edge, Cheshire using high performance paints designed for Kitchens and Furniture and what a transformation it was.

as it was
This is before our work started

Julie had found our website whilst looking on the internet for someone to do something with her kitchen.  She looked through our site, liked what she saw and contacted us for a quote.

After the pictures had been sent through I was able to provide a quote for the works. Having shown Julie our painted samples, we then discussed choosing colours.   The colours selected  were Elephants Breath and Charleston Grey and both matched the kitchen tiles beautifully. With the kitchen colours sorted, next it was time to look at the Dining Suite. Hand Painted Kitchen Alderley Edge Cheshire. Hand Painted Kitchen Alderley Edge Cheshire

The dining room was flooded with natural light and painted in warm golds and creams. Although Julie liked the dining suite she had fallen out with the look of it.  After looking at the colour chart,  Old White was the perfect choice to compliment the room.  We decided to paint the table legs and chairs but to keep the table top wood.

On with the transformation

As with all jobs we do we have a set routine.   This starts by removing all the handles, protecting all worktops and flooring, this ensures easy cleaning up for us at the end of the day plus a tidy room for the homeowner.  As for cleaning the units, we use Krud Kutter which is a fabulous degreaser and stain remover.  After the cleaning is complete, the kitchen and furniture is given a light sand using our Dustless system.

Now we have a beautiful finish for our high adhesion primer mixed into Elephant’s Breath(equivalent) and Charleston Grey (equivalent). With all the units now primed they were ready for two top coats of our waterborne furniture paints mixed into the chosen colours.  Julie was also keen to find some new handles to enhance her kitchen further and this is another way to update a kitchen. With the kitchen and furniture now finished, it was time for us to leave Alderley Edge.  We had enjoyed our time there and transforming another kitchen.

The customer also asked if we could do anything with the top of their Kitchen table.  We were able to sand and re-lacquer the top leaving a brushless finish.

Very pleased with the transformation of the kitchen and dining room.

The two Matt’s were in our house for nearly three weeks, they were easy to have around and did a terrific job.

We would definitely recommend.
