Painted Melamine Kitchen In Northwich Cheshire
Jump to PhotosWe recently completed this project, a painted melamine kitchen in Northwich in Cheshire. It was quite the transformation of a wood effect kitchen.
The first part of the kitchen painting process is to send in a set of photos. If the initial price is within your budget, the next step is to clarify details and set start dates. Because of our long and proven work history, a high percentage of clients are happy to arrange everything online, especially during Covid.
There is still a misconception floating around that you can’t paint melamine. It is too shiny, it isn’t wood, paint will surely peel off. As far back as 1997 it has been safe to paint melamine, assuming you know the right high adhesion primer to use.
A decision also has to be made on sheen level. Matt is growing in popularity but eggshell or satin are still the number one choices.
Our final proposed specification was Benjamin Moore High hiding all purpose primer (PDF), finished with the excellent Ultra Spec Scuff-x eggshell. A well proven trick of the trade to ensure full deep coverage is to mix the primer in the same colour as the topcoat, and for this kitchen the client had chosen ‘Manchester Tan HC-81‘ .
There are a multitude of options for kitchen painters to work through before deciding on the ideal way to paint your kitchen. We specialise in hand painting older wooden kitchens, but with melamine, you already have the smoothest finish possible. Spraying the doors and hand painting the frames made most sense on this job.
Since Covid reared its ugly head, we have all had to adopt a different way of working to ensure ourselves and our clients stay safe. By removing the doors and drawers and spraying them in the workshop we are able to reduce the amount of time spent within a clients property thus causing almost no disruption. And Jane was very pragmatic and understanding, keeping contact to a minimum while we worked our magic on site.
Doors & drawer fronts – sprayed 4 coats (2 x primer and 2 top coats)
Frames – hand painted 4 coats.
The results speak for themselves.
I have just had my kitchen painted by Mark Roberts. To say I am thrilled is an understatement! It looks like a new kitchen.
Mark approached the task with knowledge and professionalism. He has an enthusiasm and passion which is rare.
Also there was minimum disruption ....I didn't even have to empty the cupboards!
I would recommend Mark 100%
