Kitchen cabinet painters Holland Park: This is a blog from Martin King who shows us a recently completed Clive Christian kitchen in Holland Park.
I was contacted by my clients who have a stunning home in Holland Park, London, to hand-paint their 11 year old Clive Christian kitchen.
The kitchen had also been taken apart by the builders to cure the damp, as it was below ground level and the walls were damp. Hence there was a lot of making good to be done. Once I had degreased the kitchen I got to work making good the numerous cracks and joints that had opened up due to the dismantling of the kitchen. Clive Christian kitchen painters
The kitchen was originally painted in Farrow & Ball – All White, but the client also wanted to make a statement with the island and choose Dock Blue by Little Greene.Clive Christian kitchen painters
Happy with the preparation, Firstly, I started priming. I always use Otex adhesion primer, as I believe it is not just the best primer for kitchens, but is also tinted to the colour required, which goes a long way help achieve the deepest of finishes. The clients wanted a high sheen finish, so I used Tikkurila Helmi 30, specifically designed for kitchens. It is water based, so, low on odour, dries quickly, and is extremely hard wearing. As you can see from the photographs it also gives an amazing finish.

Its important to try and reference images before you undertake the work. This also shows any new clients how the cabinets looked prior to painting. Kitchen cabinet painters Holland Park

The following photos show the completed kitchen. You can also see the sheen level that really makes this style of kitchen stand out.
