This hand-painted kitchen commission is a continuation of our restoration project at The Old Rectory in Matlock.
The kitchen is a previously hand painted shaker style that was fitted by a local kitchen designer over 20 years ago.
The remit for Prodec was to completely redecorate the kitchen and breakfast room along with hand painting the kitchen.
Our joiners had already installed the new historically accurate windows the previous Summer, so all additional joinery was now internal and included the fitting of some new skirtings along with several new plinths…we were also able to manufacture a pair of identical shaker doors underneath the Belfast sink in the much more durable solid tulipwood, rather than the previous mdf ones. However, probably the pièce de résistance of this project was our ability to remove the butchers block style work surface from the central island to the workshop where we could put it through the sanding machine and after just a few runs it was now a brand new surface again, then easily finished using Liberon’s finishing oil for a food safe subtle finish.
The breakfast room was then decorated using the warm and light tone of Zoffany’s ‘Morning mist’ whilst the kitchen room was finished in their cooler tone of ‘Glacier Grey’.
After the joinery repairs to the fridge housing and alterations were completed to the kitchen units and the fitting of a new fridge the doors were then removed to the workshop to be prepared and spray finished, this time using the contemporary ‘Cornforth White’ from Farrow & Ball with the central island being highlighted in the bolder ‘Aquamarine’ from the Little Greene colour palette.
With the addition of new curtains from Id Interior Design in the breakfast room, our client was so pleased with the final transformation and stunning result!
