Don't replace- rejuvenate!

An old oak laminate kitchen in Epsom, Surrey. The retired owners did not want the expense and upheaval of a new kitchen so were absolutely delighted to receive a reasonable quote for Nicola's expertise and advice. This was in the region of £1500 and took a solid week of long days and dedication.

Total transformation time

Exhaustively washed of normal kitchen grease build up, sanded by hand and machine ( with catch all dust bag attached ), all handles and fittings removed. Then a special adhesion primer added before an undercoat. Then lightly sanded to take the first coat. Then this process repeated. Once all dry the kick boards replaced after painting and new handles added.

Wood and Chrome mix?

For a contemporary feel, to match the lovely range and beautiful floor, the owners realised the wood colour was totally wrong. The obvious and simple option was to paint, so they asked Nicola for a consultation on colour. They then chose new handles and booked their slot with a deposit to start the exciting process.

With a minimum of fuss and mess this kitchen was totally altered in a week. Nicola works non-stop throughout the day and is always rigorously tidy. She cleans up after herself every day so you can use your space in the evening. With a change of handles the owners have a fantastic 'brand new' kitchen and are understandably delighted.
