Re-painting a Clive Christian Kitchen: We were commissioned to re-paint a kitchen by a client who had recently purchased an ex-display kitchen from one of Clive Christian’s showrooms. Re-painting a Clive Christian Kitchen
About Clive Christian. A short description of Clive Christian.
“Fax animi honesti gloria” “In honourable thoughts, glory is born”. In 2012, in recognition of his diverse talents. He has also earned an OBE for his services to luxury goods. Re-painting a Clive Christian Kitchen
Clive Christian was the son of an artist and a biochemist. Clive inherited the skills and abilities of both of his parents. This is quite clearly evident in the creation and artistry of beautiful luxury furniture and enchanting perfumes.
Clive Christian is an internationally renowned and well established English luxury brand. At the age of 27 the then freelance interior designer purchased a 19th-century manor house in Cheshire and progressed with the renovation of the entire property. To create his style he only uses what has since become his trademark bespoke furniture. At 26 he had already designed the Victorian Kitchen. This came to the attention of the public and became incredibly popular therefore becoming a lifestyle statement ‘Nouveau Olde English’ for all that purchase any of these kitchens. Demand increased and Clive Christian was obliged to purchase factory space with a view to creating tailored interior décor for a growing and demanding public. He now has showrooms in more than 15 countries. Re-painting a Clive Christian Kitchen
These kitchen designs are modern but are a declaration of Clive Christian’s vision of an affluent luxury kitchen of the Victorian period. The cabinetry is elaborately carved and his trademark chandeliers glitter above beautifully appointed islands. The crystal maker who cuts the flacons for Clive Christian’s No1 for women ‘The world’s most expensive perfume’ also crafts his chandeliers.
Clive Christian Kitchen. Luxury Kitchens at their finest.
This collection gives an air of modernity which perfectly complements the elegant classicism of the Clive Christian interior architecture. It is made using traditional cabinet construction of a square framed door and recessed panel detailed with bolection moulding and maintains the highest level of integrity and quality.

Colour Consultation. It’s time for change.
The client’s brief was to maintain the classical look of the kitchen with a contemporary twist. After running through a few colour options it was decided that the main kitchen units would be painted in Cornforth White and the island in Railing.
Re-painting a Clive Christian Kitchen. The Kevin Mapston Way.
The first stage was to prime the bare timber then using two pack filler, All large holes and dents were also filled.
.The whole kitchen was sanded using our Festool dust extraction units and hand sanding to the mouldings. A solid coat of primer/undercoat was applied and when dry we used a halogen lamp to highlight any small imperfections which were filled using a fine surface filler.
In the high end kitchen market buying second hand can be a great investment but only if it is fitted and painted correctly. With the client spending around £85,000 they chose professional fitters and a specialist kitchen painting team to bring back the true value of the kitchen. I think the final finish speaks for itself.
