Hand Painted Kitchen Olney, Bucks- Paul C Barber & Son


Hand Painted Kitchens-Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Cambrigeshire & Hertfordshire.

We have 3 specialist kitchen painters with over 50 years of experience between them working across these areas, and can normally book work in between a 8-12 week lead time.

In 2012  Traditional Painter was launched -the original network of  specialist kitchen painters in the UK. Our invitation-only members have since transformed literally thousands of older wooden and laminate kitchens around the UK. In many cases we save our clients  tens of thousands on the cost of a new kitchen. Our specialty is upgrading 10 – 20 year old oak and pine kitchens. We also regularly hand paint new installations.

Refurbish wooden kitchens and furniture

The value of our hand-painting skills truly comes into its own with kitchen refurbishments.

Many homeowners are looking at their oak or pine kitchen and thinking that it looks a bit dated or tired, but fundamentally it is too good and practical to just throw out and replace with a new one! This is where we can help.

We can prepare, prime and paint any clear lacquered natural wood kitchen and make it look like a new kitchen. The quality of the paints I use and my attention to detail with preparation and finishing ensure a reliable and durable finish that has saved some of my clients literally £10’s of 000’s over the cost of new.

With a few minor upgrades such as new handles, change the worktops, maybe change the tiling or swap the flooring, you can have a “new look” kitchen for a fraction of the cost of new, or at the very least buy yourself a few more years of good use out of your kitchen, before investing in a complete refit.

New Installations

We have worked direct for many of the leading bespoke kitchen companies across the UK over the years and have a fine reputation throughout the kitchen industry.

Repaint previously painted bespoke wooden kitchens

One of the beauties of a kitchen that is hand painted properly in the first instance is that it can be easily maintained and kept in good order for many years. Also, it can transformed completely and cost-effectively by simply sanding back lightly and re-painting in a completely new colour.
