North Edinburgh Kitchen

This job was a little closer to home than the last few we have done!

Our clients inherited this kitchen when they bought the house and although it was lovely it didn’t quite fit into their style for the house. Instead of ripping out a well made kitchen that had nothing wrong with it they decided that painting it was the way forward after seeing their parents kitchen that we painted last year.

All areas were protected before we removed all the doors and drawer fronts ready to transport to our workshop. While on site we cleaned down all surfaces, sanded the remaining cabinet frames and panels. After sanding we applied a coat of specialist primer, and after a light sand it was ready for the paint.

Back at the workshop the doors and drawer fronts got the usual treatment. They were cleaned  of any grease then fully sanded down using different grades of sandpaper to make sure the lacquer had been removed. As these doors were a character oak they had a few knots and small holes which were filled and sanded down before priming.

After the primer was applied they were given a light sanding with a finer grade sandpaper. Then onto the painting! The doors were given multiple coats of the colour which was Farrow and Ball ‘Cornforth White’ in estate eggshell finish.

When all the doors were ready they were taken back on site and refitted. The client had chosen to change the handles which added a little more of a modern edge to her new look kitchen. We fitted the new handles for her and done any adjusting of the doors to make sure that everything looked just right.

The client is very happy with their modernised kitchen and feels it has brightened the space and said that “it looks like a brand new kitchen”.
