Hand Painted Kitchen – Northfield, West Midlands


This previously painted kitchen in Nothfield, Birmingham had quite a 1990’s feel to it… I was asked if would be possible to Hand Paint this particular kitchen in a single flat colour to modernise it and bring it kicking and screaming up to date.

IMG_3554My clients have recently installed a new walnut worktop and a new floor, they now felt that the units themselves needed a little TLC. We looked at various colour charts and decided that “Strong White” would offer a good contrast against the wall colour and the brilliant white woodwork.


As you can see from the image above, the transformation was a complete success – the kitchen is very well made and the layout works… why pay £20,000+ to replace a perfectly good kitchen with a new one that often doesn’t have the same build quality, when you can have your existing kitchen Hand Painted to great effect.


I’m extremely lucky – I only seem to work for nice people; these clients were a delight! I was given a set of keys to the house and also given the opportunity to use their rather fine Naim Hi-Fi (what an extensive CD and vinyl collection!)


For any Paint Brush geeks out there; I “road tested” a rather fine FOX paint brush on this project – (perfect for Kitchen and Furniture Painters), hopefully to appear soon at MyPaintbrush.co.uk

The finished kitchen was just what my clients wanted – they were kind enough to send through this review of my work;

“Martin was a professional from the first email. A detailed quote was provided punctually, and an agreed start date was set.

Good communication throughout before starting the job and even a last minute change of colour was no problem for Martin.

As for the job itself it can only be described as first class ! It was completed on time, no hassle and no mess.

On a personal note we struck a chord with a love of music and I would recommend Martin to all my friends and family.”
