Hand painted Kitchens
At Sustainable Kitchens, we think that your kitchen deserves individual care and attention to detail and that includes hand-finishing every unit to the highest standard. In our joinery workshop in Bristol, it’s the human touch that sets us apart. Choosing one of our kitchens means you’re choosing a perfect hand-painted solid wood kitchen to your exact specifications.
We know that you want a kitchen that is the centre and heart of your home. We know that you want it to be just the way you dreamt it. After all, this is the place where you’ll be sharing time, love and laughter with your family and friends for years to come. It only makes sense to finish your new kitchen with the highest level of detail and with a thoughtful, considerate hand-painted touch.
At Sustainable Kitchens, we believe that your kitchen should blend in perfectly with your home. This means the furniture will be finished seamlessly. Our team will fully inspect every aspect of your kitchen from top to bottom, inside and out to make sure everything down to the last detail meets our high quality standards.
When your bespoke kitchen arrives and is installed by our experienced team, it will have been primed and will have received up to 3 coats of your finished colour. These coats are applied by Connor, our furniture painter, in a specialist part of our Bristol workshop. Using a fine spray and turntable your furniture is painted to a smooth and complete finish. After this, the furniture is ready for the final hand-painting coats in situ.
hand painted kitchens versus factory finish
The contrast between a hand painted vs factory finish is stark. A hand painted finish boasts a more natural appearance and glow – this is because the brush applies the paint using a more direct technique according to the natural grain of the wood.
In addition to this, repairing cabinetry with a hand painted finish is much more straightforward. Chips or scuffs as a result of general wear and tear over the years can be easily sanded down with another layer of paint reapplied by hand!
And finally, by choosing a hand painted kitchen you are future-proofing your cabinetry should you ever have a change of taste over time, you can simply sand down your down and repaint the kitchen to your colour of choice again.
Our Final Touches
Lottie paints in the direction of the grain of the wood, to work sympathetically with the beautiful materials underneath. This ensures that you won’t be distracted by brushstrokes, but instead will be able to enjoy seeing the intricate grain of the wood you selected.
We know that kitchens are busy places. The whole family lives and works in the kitchen. Wear and tear are expected and accidents happen. Thankfully, your kitchen is hand painted and can easily be touched up in situ, or you could even repaint it entirely to create a fresh, new look. We use hardwearing and, importantly, environmentally friendly Farrow & Ball or Little Greene paints. They offer a huge variety of colours so you can pick the one to suit your home.
