If you're a little tired of your existing kitchen, but it's in good serviceable
condition, there's no need to spend a fortune on a complete renovation.
Try giving it a facelift as Kevin does in this kitchen, by changing the colour
of the cupboard doors, drawers & splashbacks.
To begin, clean grease and grime thoroughly from all surfaces using “White
Knight Tile and Laminate Cleaner”.
Remove cupboard doors and handles. Hinges are easy to remove, slacken one screw
in each hinge and door should slide off. Remember to number them so they go back
in the same place.
When painting tiles or laminate you must use a specialised paint like White
Knight Laminate Paint and Primer, which is hardwearing and bonds well.
Once primer is dry, sand very lightly with fine paper. When using oil-based
paint it's a good idea to heat it slightly before painting by placing the tin in
bucket of hot water, to help it flow nicely.
When putting the cupboard doors back in place use the screws on the hinge to
adjust up and down or sideways.
Kevin used Taubmans White Gloss Acrylic to brighten the window frames as well as
White Knight Tile and Laminate Paint, which is available in a huge range of
Kitchen cupboard doors and drawers were also given a new look using replacement
handles from Howard Silvers.
