The new owners of the property in Bedfordshire found my details on Google and called me to do a quote.

A suggestion that I made was to replace the granite worktop on the island with a piece of European Oak which they did. This gives a much warmer and balanced feel to the kitchen. Another suggestion was to polish up the chrome handles which I done as part of the job.

Stripping down the kitchen

First job was to get a decent level of protection onto the new island worktop and also on the floor area at the foot of the cabinets. This is a standard procedure job as it show a degree of professionalism in protecting the clients floor.

Everything protected cabinets then stripped down of hardware. This includes catches, badges and handles. Everything removed, cleaned then sanded. This gives valuable adhesion for the initial adhesion primer. The finish was going to be Tikkurila Helmi 10 which is similar to an eggshell finish.

As you can see in the photo below the level of finish is superb.

Colour: mixed very similar to Farrow and Ball Pavilion Gray. Manually mixed and tweaked to client specification.

These kitchens are an absolute joy to work on and having worked with Mark Wilkinson for over 15 years felt I was the right person for this project. The kitchen painting went very smoothly and I managed to fix an ill fitting bin runner and also made several adjustments to the drawers that were catching.

Overall it was a very satisfying project. A finish that will last and also show this kitchen at its best. The newly polished chrome handles look fantastic against the new Grey finish.

Top finished with an Osmo top oil to allow safe food preparation. The look of the kitchen is now more balanced with the new Oak worktop. A stunning design and a stunning kitchen that will last for years.

All I need are some photos like the ones above that show the cabinets and different runs.
