Hand Painted Kitchens
At Bespoke Interiors we offer both a spray painted and hand painted finish to our furniture. We are often asked what the benefits are of hand painting a kitchen, so we thought it might be helpful to give a little information about hand painted furniture
Hand painted kitchens are considered to be a higher end finish within the kitchen industry and there’s good reason for this. Although spray painted furniture has a great, durable finish, the best joiners in the world can’t cut and joint painted cornice, pelmet etc without leaving a visible joint. With a hand painted finish, these joints are sanded, filled and painted in your home as part of the process, this gives a more moulded look to the furniture and can only be fully achieved by the process and gives a very distinctive look.
Depending on the style of kitchen you’re looking for, there are also paint effects that can only be properly applied to the furniture when hand painted onsite. These effects include distressing, patina and gold/silver leafing. Our popular Manor House Kitchen design features heavy corbels and dental cornice which looks great hand painted with silver leaf effect or antiqued effect.
Hand painted kitchens in Newcastle aren’t as common as in the south and north west England, so skilled hand painters are rare in the region. However, Bespoke Interiors is lucky to have one of the best painters in Anita Arris, who has vast experience and her workmanship is second to none.
We also recommend Little Green Paint Co as our preferred paint supplier for hand painted furniture. We find their colour range to be quite stunning and since Farrow and Ball have switched to water based paints, the oil based paints of Little Green give a much more durable finish to our furniture
We hope this brief explanation of hand painting gives you an idea of the process but for more information we recommend you call into our showroom to see our hand painted display and discuss things further with our designers.
