Painted oak kitchen Sheffield in equivalent colours to Farrow & Ball New White on the main kitchen units and Pitch Black to the central island. This kitchen was around 12 years old and in really good condition, unfortunately it was looking lifeless and lacking any character, dull and aged with that orangey appearance that oak gives as it gets older.
The clients are a young professional couple that inherited the kitchen when they purchased the house last year. Having researched the option of having a new kitchen installed, the price tags left them gob smacked! With a new home and a new baby on the way, there were lots of other projects to budget for and so they decided to look at the options of having the existing kitchen painted; the layout worked for them and it was still structurally sound, the perfect project for hand painting. So they did some internet research and found me and a few others besides.
Hollie and Joe are a lovely couple to work for, bright energetic and full of enthusiasm and excitement about having their kitchen makeover. During my time working there, they kept me fueled with tea and biscuits, home made carrot cake, and home made cottage pie… I could of quite easily strung that job out… hahaha!
They did take the time to explain their reasons for choosing me though and like a lot of people nowadays, when buying something off the internet (myself included) is looking at reviews and testimonials. They also wanted a traditional hand painted finish as opposed to spraying and so together with my 30+ years of experience in painted kitchens, this savvy couple were sold on my pedigree and reviews, which is always great to know and very humbling to hear.
We are absolutely over the moon with our kitchen re-paint. Russ was a pleasure to work with, we actually missed him once he’d finished the job. He is honest, reliable, hardworking and above all, did the most fantastic job on our kitchen. It really feels, and looks, like we’ve had a complete re-fit. He brought our kitchen right up to date and we are absolutely thrilled with the end result.
Although I am based in Nottingham, I probably spend half my working life up and around the Sheffield area… I can often be found around Dore, Totley, Fulwood and most areas that side of town. However, this job was on tutther side in Tankersley.

Professionally painting an oak kitchen as with any kitchen is a fastidious job. I’ve literally painted 100s over the years and have fined tuned my practices, processes and the materials I use to be able to deliver an unrivaled service and end product, to which I am very proud of. Im not a quick fix kinda person… it has to be done right and I go out of my way to ensure that you as my customer are completely satisfied with your new look hand painted kitchen.
Preparation is key!
As with any painting project, preparation is key to a long lasting, durable finish. I clean down and degrease every inch of your kitchen cabinets, this process alone can take a couple of days. Dismantling all the doors and draws, removing the hardware and coding every item, so that when it comes to refitting, it all goes back where it came from. Albeit a few tweeks!
This is always a good time to consider de-cluttering the contents of your cabinets and draws to enable me to have easy access when I am painting the frames and refitting every thing back. All surfaces not being painted are masked up and protected but you can use your kitchen in an evening.
Paint and colours
I have spent a lot of time researching and testing the products I use before I put them into practice. The Nordic paint system I use has been tried and tested and these specialist paints are factory tested to 1000 scrubs. Once fully cured, they are both durable and hard wearing and will stay looking good for many years to come.
The choice of colour is almost limitless and I can have these paints tinted into the equivalent colours to most popular colour palettes. I do not use house hold brands as they really are Not durable enough to withstand the daily use of a kitchen environment… in my opinion.
