Be aware with timber that the maintenance regime is important. Oiled timber worktops dry out after time and should be maintained by regular reapplication of a suitable oil

INSTALLATION

We recommend that you employ a skilled and qualified kitchen fitter to install your kitchen.

The installation of your kitchen is hugely important and the difference between using a qualified kitchen fitter and a builder or DIY installer can make an enormous difference to the end result.

We have a number of recommended installers throughout the UK who will happily quote for the installation of your “Shaker Kitchens Online” Kitchen.

PAINT & PAINTING

Your “Shaker Kitchens Online” kitchen comes pre finished in a factory spray finish in any of the popular Farrow & Ball colours.

The furniture is sprayed in a high quality extremely durable “two pack” paint.

“Two pack” paint is a paint that has its drying time accelerated by a catalytic reaction forming an extremely tough durable finish that is very easy to clean. With every kitchen we supply touch up paint.

If you prefer a hand painted finish there are two options. The furniture can be supplied in a primer only finish….primed in an off white colour for you to finish once installed with a hand painted colour of your choice. This option allows you then to paint your furniture in any colour although several coats will need to be applied to every surface of the furniture.

Alternatively choose one of the Farrow and Ball colours then over-paint the factory spray finish with the same colour to give you the hand painted look. This method means that only the front faces and edges of the doors need be painted by hand. The factory spray finish will need to be “keyed” with a fine sandpaper before the hand painted top coat is applied.

We also have recommended kitchen painters in various areas of the country who can perform any of the hand painting services.

Please Contact us directly on 0208 0902325 for advice and information on paints and painting.
