Hand Painted Kitchen Swindon Wiltshire: This hand painted kitchen was commissioned by the owners of a beautiful cottage on the outskirts of Swindon, Wiltshire. With over 25 years in the kitchen painting industry, we have only painted a handful of kitchens in our home town. It was great to receive a recommendation from a recent kitchen we had painted in Wiltshire. kitchen painter Wiltshire
Hand painted kitchen Swindon, Wiltshire
The cottage was in an idyllic village in the countryside just on the outskirts of Swindon.
The client sent us photographs of the limed oak kitchen which they wanted painting. The kitchen was in good working order but needed lightening up; this would enhance the whole kitchen area and extend the life of the units.
The clients had arranged for us to do the work while they were away on holiday.
We then degreased the kitchen and washed down all of the surfaces. The kitchen was sanded down using a Festool Dust Free Sanding System. Hand Painted Kitchen Swindon Wiltshire
Painting the kitchen
The kitchen was primed using Isofix from Holman Specialist Paints. Isofix is a high performance, ultra sealing and fast drying universal adhesion primer based on solvent borne shellac-resins. It provides excellent adhesion to copper, bronze, stainless steel, smooth hard surfaces, old paints, masonry, plaster and laminates.
Once the primer was dry, we filled up any cracks or blemishes using two pack filler.
Which paint to use for hand painted kitchen furniture
The client wanted a matt but very durable paint finish. With this in mind we decided to use Helmi Matt Furniture Paint.
Tikkurila Helmi Furniture and Trim Paint has high abrasion and chip resistance making it ideal for painting furniture, kitchen cabinets, doors and wooden trim.
With the kitchen tiles being green in colour, they created a line around the room making it appear smaller than it actually was. Rather than replace the tiles, we painted them.
After cleaning we then sprayed them with Isofix and two coats of Feelings Extra Durable Paint.
Feelings Extra Durable Paint is a heavy-duty interior paint offering an exceptionally hardwearing and long lasting finish in areas that require frequent washing down with detergents and disinfectants.
