PRIOR TO COMMENCEMENT

The kitchen was in a very nice detached house in Lichfield, Staffordshire.

Being a brand new fitted kitchen supplied by handmade kitchens of Christchurch. I have painted quite a number of kitchen cabinets for this company which has resulted in phone conversations and visits the showroom.

The customers had originally intended to paint the cabinets. After painting on unit realised they needed a professional cabinet painter to carry out the task. The kitchen was in a newly extended part of the house with new sky lights giving the room a very sunny aspect.

The units being brand new were still awaiting the installation of the granite work tops but due to time scales the kitchen was to be painted prior to the installation and then finished off after as per the customer’s wishes. Kitchen cabinet painter handmade kitchens direct Lichfield

In the initial discussions colour schemes were discussed and chosen, whereupon a start date for the project was arranged and the total price and deposit were agreed.

The customer asked me to paint all cabinets in a light grey to give the kitchen a totally new brighter and modern look to match the chosen colour of the walls.

STARTING

6 weeks later I started work, I contacted the customers one week prior to the start date to make sure all was well and to make sure there were no changes to the chosen colour scheme etc.

All floors, worktops, the oven and fridge were covered with plastic sheeting and masked off where required.

Removing the handles and thoroughly cleaning/sanding cabinets, making good any areas slightly knocked during installation.

Sanding down, between all coats of paint. Kitchen cabinet painter handmade kitchens direct Lichfield

Two coats of primer were applied, colour tinted to match the top coat colour paint, three coats of water based eggshell paint applied to all the cabinets. 

Walls of the kitchen where touched afterwards.

The kitchen was cleaned at the end of every day and thoroughly cleaned upon completion.

I have went back to the property to finish off the painting after the installation of the granite work tops. The customer was very happy with the final look to the kitchen.

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

 

Dear John

I wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you for making our dream kitchen a reality.  We had painted one of the cupboards ourselves and were in danger of ruining what could be an amazing kitchen.  The finish you were able to achieve was fantastic and exactly what we had imagined it would look like.  Without this we would be looking at a very different kitchen.  I also wanted to thank you for being very accommodating with us when we were struggling to fit the kitchen in time for you to paint it.  You worked around this and you reassured us that whatever happened we would get it looking good.

Also, thank you for the advice on the paint and sourcing this at a much cheaper cost.

Finally, thank you for returning weeks later, after the granite had been fitted, to touch up and ensure a fantastic finish.

Thank you for bringing this whole kitchen together for us.  I cannot recommend you highly enough.

Many thanks
Liz
