Repainting a Chalon Kitchen

We were contacted by a client who was in the process of refurbishing their main home; being a very large property, the project had also been running for a long period of time and the end was in sight!

This was also the best time for us to begin our work. The client was looking for a minimalist look to the kitchen with a uniform colour throughout the units. Kitchen cabinet painters Surrey


We started by protecting all surfaces that were not being painted with thick lining paper. This not only protects the surfaces but also helps control any dust and allows the areas to be vacuumed. The kitchen was in good condition but still needed a good degrease! Once all the handles were removed the filling and also the sanding could begin! Kitchen cabinet painters Surrey

Painting System

Once all the preparation was completed, we applied an adhesion primer/undercoat to all prepared areas. The primer/undercoat is tinted to the same or as close to the final colour which furthermore gives a good sound and solid base. At this stage we run lighting over the units to highlight any imperfections which are then filled and also sanded, leaving a smooth, blemish free base for applying the following top coats.

Sheen level

We offer our clients a 10% and 30% sheen level to achieve the look required, The 10% being a more traditional eggshell finish and the 30% more of a satin finish, which in contrast has more of a sheen. These particular clients wanted a low sheen level so 10% was the choice. The final coats were applied, handles replaced, protection removed and the kitchen cleaned. Kitchen cabinet painters Surrey

Chalon Kitchens

The Chalon family founded the kitchen company we know today as an antique restoration business in 1978. In 1981, the business was moved to the Old Hambridge Mill, at Hambridge, in the midst of the Somerset Levels (in South West England). Michael and Rose Chalon began producing furniture designed to emulate the classic elegance of 18th and 19th Century English furniture. Their bold and open styling was  alos complemented by a unique paint effect developed to provide a distressed finish as if each piece had naturally aged in an English country house.”

These kitchens are unquestionably beautiful. They also need a degree of care when working on them. Having worked at Mark Wilkinson for over 15 years has given a vast amount of experience when working on these truly magnificent projects.
