I am a self-confessed painted kitchen aficionado and yes, I really do like to hang out in the kitchen at parties.
With two decades of experience in the kitchen industry and thousands of kitchen design specifications undertaken, I bring an experts perspective to painted kitchen cupboards.
I am a horticulturist at heart and alumni of RHS Pershore. The subtle hues and striking bursts that flowers, leaves and growing textures surround us with are my everlasting palette. In the early 1990s when my profession as a plantswoman was interrupted by rainy days, I undertook re-finishing of period furniture, experimenting with many different finishes mostly using the available oil-based paints which took an age to dry.
Ragging, sponging, pastels, stripes, and stencils are painted on chairs, tables, cupboards, dressers, and armoires as my family can confirm.
So began my love affair with cupboard paint.
Kitchen Colour Expertise
Working as a painted kitchen designer, guiding clients through the deliberations of colour choice for their new kitchen cupboards and the related room colours, Fired Earth, Farrow & Ball, Little Green, The Paper Library and Designers Guild became my friends. Through in-depth knowledge of these colour palettes and how they complemented the painted kitchens that I specified and sold, I honed my eye for the ideal Kitchen Cupboard Paint collection.
During my tenure as Sales and Marketing Director for an AIM listed painted Kitchen maker, I developed and launched a 100+ colour palette specifically for painted kitchen cupboards, and here I established skill for creating timeless colour tones for cabinets and a range of bolder accent colours.
For the last few years, I have been a consultant to designers and specifiers of sustainable small buildings and bespoke furniture, working to create a project identity using colour and texture on external and internal finishes.
When I couldn’t source the specialist paint type and colour I required, I developed my own Kitchen Cupboard Paint collection to provide homeowners and designers with a luxury smooth satin finish in a unique range of kitchen specific colours.
To meet the needs of many customers who were not satisfied by being advised to apply off the shelf eggshell paint to complete their expensive and newly fitted kitchen, I now provide Kitchen Cupboard Paint for newly built kitchens, kitchen makeovers and cupboard refurbishments so that every painted kitchen can benefit from durable @paintedcupboardlove
KITCHEN CONSULTATIONS, PAINT PRODUCTION, PRODUCT RESOURCES AND CONNECTIONS
I provide kitchen consultations to homeowners who are starting the process of getting a new kitchen or reconfiguring their existing room either in the traditional sense for inside but also outdoor kitchen spaces.
Kitchen makers offer a collection of very similar looking cupboard styles and with repetitive sales techniques and discounts, are vying for your business. I provide an enlightened design and specification service to clients who are looking for a less mainstream aesthetic and exclusive design service.
My kitchen consultation supports clients in their mission to create a distinctive and functional kitchen room. I can shortcut the kitchen showroom sales process by developing a considered kitchen design brief, advising on which cabinet maker will best suit each client’s needs and provide a tried and tested resource for unique kitchen components such as bespoke handle makers and specialist appliances; oh and the best Kitchen Cupboard Paint too of course!
The result is a kitchen design with a detailed and illustrated specification with an accompanying resource report. You can commission me to provide a project management service for your kitchen project, coordinating trades and logistics for you in your home.
Do contact me directly to discuss how my kitchen consultation will benefit you.
Making your kitchen truly yours and not merely a replication of a kitchen showroom or magazine cover is easy when you source a few bespoke features. Using local makers and specialists means that you can contribute to protecting heritage craft skills and have a unique feature too. My resources introduce you to incredible select makers and products that you may not yet have discovered.
