About me

If you are weighing up the cost of a new kitchen, think seriously about a hand-painted kitchen refurbishment. The job will be charged individually and the price includes cleaning, sanding, priming and a stunning finish – the savings are enormous!

The time factor

Kitchen painting can buy you time for later. If you are set on having a brand new kitchen but your funds are low; for a small outlay you can have your current kitchen hand painted. This gives it a new lease of life for years until you are ready for a full upgrade.

If you are selling your property, a dated or shabby kitchen could have a major impact on the selling price. This could be a seen as a problem by potential buyers, however my hand painting service can make all the difference. A number of my clients have experienced the dilemma of wanting to maximise the sales potential on their house without incurring any huge expenses. All of the clients I worked with secured a sale when their current kitchen was painted.

This has also been the case when working with landlords who do not want to go to the expense of replacing a dated kitchen in a rental property.

My commitment to you

There is no difference in how I approach any job, from working on a modest kitchen refurbishment or a large bespoke kitchen. Hand painting and refurbishing kitchens and fitted furniture is my passion. I take pride in my work and work very hard to ensure that my clients are 100% happy with the finished product.


Many people choose to invest in a new kitchen believing this to be the only option open to them. Deciding to have your kitchen painted can be a major decision; therefore it is crucial that I build trust and confidence with my clients from the outset.

To achieve this I start with a structured consultation process ensuring that the client fully understands the process. The colour, the paint, the finish, timescale and the price are all discussed.

Once this is agreed I produce a schedule of work which is agreed by the client before any work takes place.

I respond to all emails and calls and keep in touch with my clients as often as needed.


I provide a clear and thorough estimate of the work based on your requirements. The price includes all paint and materials, the price quoted will not change.

*If additional work is required or requested, a separated quote will be submitted and agreed.

Reliability and punctuality

I try to work around your schedule. Always punctual, my aim is to give you a seamless service arriving on site at the agreed time.


My business depends on delivering a high quality service to my clients in all aspects of my interactions with them; I work hard to ensure that my clients feel comfortable with me and confident that I will respect their space, privacy and property.

Many of my clients trust me with keys if the need arises.

Minimal disruption compared to a kitchen refit

My aim is to cause the least amount of disruption as possible. Your kitchen will be fully functional throughout the whole process; all the kitchen doors are painted off site. The fitted side panels and canopies are cleaned, prepared, primed and painted at a time best suited to your family. I take into account the painting and drying time; this is usually done in the morning so that the paint will be touch dry by early afternoon.

All the protective sheets etc will be removed before I leave each day.

The only major disruption is not having the doors on your units for approx 3-4 days.

I will hand over your newly painted kitchen in one week depending on the size and detail involved. I make every attempt to adhere to the agreed schedule.


My kitchen painting and furniture restoration services are available across a wide area, including Wilmslow, Knutsford, Alderley Edge and Hale. Although I am based in the North West of England, I do travel further afield if necessary, including overseas. In the past I have provided re-painting services within London.

Wherever you are, if you choose me to revamp your kitchen, bedroom or any other room in your home or work space you’ll be in safe hands!
