Hand painted Kitchen Worsley.
A very dark kitchen indeed.
The clients liked the layout and the quality of the kitchen and wanted to make it lighter as it wasn’t reflecting in enough light.
The client had looked at various shades of grey a had finally picked a colour very similar to Lamp Room Grey.
As with most hand painted kitchens, it was quite greasy after years of use. So removal of any trace of grease is absolutely imperative in order to make the primer and subsequent coats stick permanently. In this case I used Tikkurila’s Maalipesu which was very effective. It’s always a good policy to repeat the process to ensure all the grease is gone even though the Maalipesu can seem to make the grease turn into a powdery film. And there’s no harm in going for a third clean over. I can’t stress enough how important this step is.
There are many paint products on the market. However, some of them are unsuitable for kitchens. That goes for some of the posh brands without mentioning any names.
I can get an accurate colour match on any paint shade you choose whether it be in Scuff-X or Tikkurila Helmi. I do use a lot of that,. That’s a 10 % sheen.
I had the primer mixed to the top coat colour as Ilways want to build up that depth of colour making it look really solid. I used Otex.
After priming I applied two coats of Benjamin Moores Scuff-XThis is a water based paint like no other. It is incredibly tough and totally fit for purpose when painting kitchens. It has a lovely sheen which is not too much and very traditional looking. I’d say it’s around 12 to 15 percent in sheen level. It’s fast drying and can be re- coated in the same day without dragging and creating unwarranted brush marks.
The result is stunning for this hand painted kitchen, Worsley.
