The process of having your kitchen painted.. Kitchen cabinet painter Preston Lancashire
One of the most important part of this process is the preparation. It is essential that it is cleaned and made ready for the primer layer.
Depending on which specialist kitchen cabinet painter carries out the work, there is masking and sheeting to be put in place. This can be just a heavy quality lining paper to make it easy to keep clean. Some of the guys use corrugated card and some use foldable protective card.
These will all do the job perfectly!
Adhesion primer and top coats
A process that is critical to the longevity and above all the finished paint film. There are several variations depending on what your kitchen is also finished with. A decision will be made on that first day as to which primer will be best suited to the project.
Another thing to consider is sheen level. We work with eggshell and satin finishes. Eggshell being the one with least sheen and looks beautiful when complete.
Having carried out the above, the following images show the finished kitchen. Kitchen cabinet painter Preston Lancashire
Alignment and so we can implement change
When the doors and drawers are being refitted, the kitchen cabinet painter will try to align the doors and drawers as best possible. The gaps may not be an issue because it is a relatively simple process to make them look visually straighter. The devil is in the detail!
The existing handles were cleaned with a citrus cleaner and they looked as good as new. In this case, the handles had become quite sticky. The virosol took care of that!
We never tire of transforming these wooden kitchens. The impact is huge and so the savings are vast. If you were to replace a kitchen like the one above, you could be looking at £15k upwards.
The upheaval would also be quite disruptive. This kitchen was never out of use during the whole process as each kitchen cabinet painter is as flexible as possible. Just something to consider if access to the kitchen is essential.
The tiles on this project were to be re faced by a coloured glass which is to be completed after all painting was complete. The tops had a thin layer of granite over the existing tops giving the appearance of a thicker stone. It all looked superb on completion.
A final clear up on the final day and to clean down any residual dust not caught by the dustless sander. This is normally minimal dust caused by fine hand sanding.
All in all a beautiful new kitchen at a fraction of the cost of a new one.
How to get a quote?
