Paintable kitchens make it easy to customise the colour scheme and finish in a room to create a space that has a bespoke feel and is full of character. From lighter schemes punctuated with dark-coloured accents, to deep tones paired with eye-catching metallic fittings, choosing a painted kitchen is a great way to add a personal touch to the home. Different unit types and layouts are available, including completely handleless designs for a sleek and modern touch on a timeless shaker-style.

Paul and his son have been carrying out the hand painting to kitchens across the UK for over 30 years. Paul started in the trade in the mid 70s and is one of the most accomplished and experienced specialist hand painters in the UK today. He started Hand Painting bespoke kitchens in the 80s predominantly in the North London and Hertfordshire areas. Back then Smallbone was the must have hand painted kitchen and Paul has painted many over the years. He even once met Charlie Smallbone the founder of Smallbone kitchens on a installation of a new kitchen that he had been commissioned to hand paint in Hampstead in North London.

This is a recent Howdens Chelford Shaker style paintable kitchen that we have recently repainted. When it was 1st installed the client commissioned  a spray service to paint the furniture. Unfortunately the work was carried out to a very poor standard. In fact the paint started to scatch off after only a few weeks. The spray service had not prepared or applied a primer before spraying the top coats this resulted in the paint not adhering to the surface. We had to completely sand down and remove the failed coating and start again. We applied the correct adhesion primer and completed with 2 top coats hand painted with brush and roller.

Before: As you can see the finished paint coating was scratching off very easily just with finger nails.

Before: Some of the poorest work we have seen in recent years.

Completed in a traditional hand painted finish that we guarantee for 2 years against fare ware and tear.

Paul has passed on his knowledge and skills to his son who has now been working along side his Father for over 15 years and is also a very accomplished specialist kitchen painter
