Staircases are often at the heart of a home, playing an important part in the circulation between living and resting spaces. For those with a staircase in their entrance hall, that room becomes your welcome back after a long day at work, a tiring day out with the family, and everything in between. It is often one of the first features you or a guest will see when opening the door, and can be seen from most adjoining rooms in the home. Now more than ever, that staircase and the finishings around it are becoming a central part of the design focus, no longer just a route from bottom to top. One of the quickest ways to transform a staircase and the hallways around it is simply to paint them. However, doing this properly whilst retaining the quality of the finish is actually very difficult to achieve.Read More About Professional Staircase Spraying
Spray painting kitchen doors and drawers is a great way to transform a tired and dated kitchen. Kitchen paint spraying is not a new service, and many new high-end kitchens are actually finished in some kind of paint from the factory, whether that be applied by hand or sprayed. What’s not so obvious to homeowners is that you can have your existing fitted kitchen refurbished to new factory level standards, without actually replacing a thing. New knobs and handles can be an option to add another fresh dimension, but simply adding a new finish and colour to the doors and drawers can transform your kitchen overnight. One big positive to having your kitchen spray painted is the overall cost compared to replacement. Many people choose to have new doors and drawers fitted to their existing cupboards and units, but costs can soon add up here too.Read More About Choosing Your Kitchen Spraying Company
Whilst kitchen spraying projects account for the vast majority of our work, we also frequently work with our customers to revamp and renovate fitted bedroom furniture, fitted bathroom suites and staircases. This is not something we promote or even advertise on our website, mainly due the volume of enquiries and bookings we take from our kitchen work, with which we are generally booked up for months in advance. We are, however, happy to quote for this kind of work and are equally experienced too, with dozens of staircases, fitted suites and furniture items sprayed in homes and businesses each year. Whatever the material of your fitted furniture, whether it be laminated or veneered fibreboard, solid wood or even previously hand painted, we can refinish it in a colour of your choice, to fresh from factory standards.Read More About Fitted Furniture and Staircase Spraying
Here's a stunning kitchen spraying project we completed a few weeks back for a local customer based in Skelbrooke near Doncaster. Previously a tired solid oak kitchen, these doors, drawers and units were prepared and finished in two different tones, Cornforth White and Off Black by Farrow and Ball. We love the contrast in the colours in this kitchen; the balance between the dark marble worktops, the remaining wood and the stainless steel appliances and handles. We think it’s a great combination and the customer was thrilled with the end result. Choosing a colour for your revamped kitchen can sometimes be incredibly difficult, but don’t worry, we have thousands of photos from previous customers to help you decide, and we are happy to give you our recommendations based on the light in your room, other furnishings, your tastes and the overall desired effect.Read More About Cornforth White and Off Black Paint
Peeling or bubbling on vinyl wrapped kitchen doors is one of the most common problems we experience when dealing with our customers and their kitchens. The peeling generally starts on the edges of the doors or drawers, before quickly spreading along the length of the panel. Kitchen manufacturers often blame these peels or bubbles on heat, moisture, steam, direct sunlight or improper use of cleaning solutions, all of which can effect the integrity of the glue beneath. Although these causes are often preventable with hindsight, by the time you notice the problem it’s generally too late and the damage is already done. In our experience, the most common areas where the vinyl tends to peel is on the floor unit doors below the kitchen sink, wall unit doors above toasters and kettles, and doors and drawers either side of the oven, where the seals start to degrade and release heat. Amongst other issues, this is one reason why vinyl wrap kitchen suppliers generally only provide a limited warranty.Read More About Vinyl Peeling
We regularly discuss hand painting with our customers, and how that compares with the kitchen spraying services we offer. Although we understand and appreciate that people sometimes want to hand paint themselves and take pride in their work (or use a competitor due to a difference in price) we would strongly advise you to think twice and compare all of the options and their quality before making your choice. More and more people are painting their own doors and drawers, using acrylic based paints specifically designed for kitchens, thinking it’s a fantastic idea to save costs and transform their room with minimal costs. However, time and time again we deal with and rectify units where specialist hand paint has been used on insufficiently prepared surfaces, the finish literally wiping off with mild detergent and slight abrasion. This standard of finish and its durability is incomparable to the factory level standards that we strive for and achieve for each and every one of our customers.Read More About Hand Painting
