The things you would need to take into consideration when buying a kitchen like this are the additional costs of fitting and the painting and finishing of the units. The kitchen is the most valuable room in your house; it is worth more per square metre than any other room and can make a big difference to the value of your home. Handmade kitchens direct Christchurch Surrey

We cannot stress enough the importance of having a professional kitchen fitter to fit your kitchen, not only for the aesthetics but for the durability. A poorly fitted kitchen can devalue your home as well as causing problems with wear and tear of the units.

How to achieve a high-end look for your kitchen

As well as the importance of having your kitchen fitted by a professional, the same applies to the painting and finishing. Painting a kitchen yourself is not an easy DIY project and our professional kitchen and furniture painters are time served, have years of experience and the finish achieved will make your dream kitchen a reality. How to paint a kitchen from Hand Painted Kitchens Direct.

Choosing the correct paint

In kitchen painting, the biggest financial outlay is the labour so using high quality paints is imperative. We use the highest quality materials on the market, specially formulated for kitchen and furniture painting.

The kitchens from Hand Painted Kitchens Direct are supplied without primer. It is essential to build up the layers of paint which is not only to achieve a flawless finish but to offer protection and durability.

We start by applying the first coat of primer undercoat. The kitchen would be filled and sanded back to a smooth finish. The next stage is to apply a fine surface filler and caulk to all the transition joins. This maintains the profile of the design. After sanding again, we apply a second coat of primer undercoat and then use a finer paper to rub down again. Two topcoats are applied either in satin or matt finish. The internals of the units are prepared and two coats of oil are applied.

When to book your kitchen painting

Once you have ordered your kitchen and have a delivery date, we would recommend booking the fitter and kitchen painter. Allow a certain moveable window of time as time frames can change; good tradesmen may be booked up for months in advance.
