Painting My Kitchen

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Question

I am currently in the process of revamping my kitchen, I currently have a solid oak kitchen and am thinking of having it handpainted in cream, I am worried about the maintenance of a cream painted kitchen ie will it chip easily? Also how many coats of paint should it require, is there a specific brand of paint which is better than others to give a stronger paint effect. Spraying my doors is not an option as I have used furniture polish on them (or so I have been told)
Any help or advice you can give me would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Frances.

Answer

Hi Frances,

Many thanks for putting your question to KitchenIndex.ie.? Our aim is to provide information and advice along with a full directory of suppliers to anyone looking to buy a new kitchen or wardrobes or revamp an existing one.

Handpainted kitchens tend to keep quite well as long as it doesn’t take too much abuse.? In my experience, I haven’t had anyone tell me that they regret having a handpainted kitchen and you will be amazed by the transformation of your kitchen once you paint it.

As your existing kitchen is oak, you may find that because oak has a heavy grain, this might show through the paint.? You will probably find that it will take two coats of paint on top of a primer to give a good finish and it is best to use an eggshell paint with a good purdy brush so that it won’t loose it’s bristles.? Any good brand of paint is good to use like Dulux or Crown or for a more luxurious finish you could us Farrow & Ball.

Just make sure that the kitchen is completely de-grease and given a light sanding before you start applying the primer. Check out these decorators in london for some inspiration.

I hope this helps and if you need any further advice please let me know.

Regards,

Colin.

Glass Kitchen – New Kitchen from Snaidero

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Glass Kitchen by Snaidero

Ever thought of a glass finished kitchen?? Maybe not!? But now you can.

Snaidero, the Italian kitchen manufacturer, has launched a new bespoke glass door in its Orange kitchen collection.? Available in both white and graphite grey, it can be finished beautifully with a 12mm lacquered tempered glass worktop to give a sleek contemporary look.

Another fact worth noting is that because glass in completely non-toxic and recyclable it will not add any unwanted contaminant to your kitchen making it a fantastic option for an eco-friendly kitchen.

This glass kitchen would also be fantastic for small kitchens or kitchens that lack natural light.? The glass in the doors and worktop?produces a 3D feel which in turn offers great depth, lightness and?transparency.? Just imagine what that would?do for?a small kitchen.? It would open it up and allow any light to illuminate and reflect?off it which would make the kitchen look bigger and brighter.
