We love these stunning old buildings and are always delighted to be asked to bring them back to their former glory.
This beautiful property in the centre of Midhurst was desperately in need of a face-lift, the busy main road alongside it had certainly taken its toll.
Having erected the scaffolding, we carefully prepared the masonry and woodwork ready for painting.
We completed the project using the Dulux weather shield system. Weather shield is a specialist range of paints for exterior masonry, wood and metal and uses advanced technology to help withstand the elements, so your paint will look better for longer. Containing a unique, high performance acrylic resin that actively resists peeling and flaking while protecting against mould stains!
Phew, this was hard going in the ongoing heatwave but what a result!
This tea-shop/restaurant in Arundel, West Sussex had certainly taken a bashing. We were tasked to renovate the entire building including walls and woodwork – sadly we didn’t take any before photos but are certain you will like the finished look!
Don’t take our word for it though, why not visit Juniper in Tarrant Street, Arundel and see for yourselves.
We’ve written before about our external decorating but thought we would refresh your memory!
Although UPVC windows and doors are becoming so much more common there are still lot’s of building – particularly period cottages and houses that have the original frames, indeed plenty are under special orders that they are not allowed to be change.
This doesn’t mean though that they have to go to wrack and ruin, as the pictures below show with a bit of TLC your outside woodwork and be returned to it’s former glory and beyond.
Here at K&R we take a pride in our work and your home is in safe hands. From the initial, careful sanding of the project to filling (if necessary), treating and eventually painting you are guaranteed the very best of service every time.

We were lucky enough to be invited to work at a wonderful house full of beautiful beams – why would you want to change them we hear you ask?
Rather than ‘changing’ them, we’ve enhanced them!
Using our favourite Farrow & Ball paint range choosing a sympathetic grey eggshell paint for the beams, edged with an acrylic white eggshell for the window frames and skirting and finished with a coat of ‘blackened’ on the walls.
We love it, the client loves it – what do you think?
Yep, we all see the many variants of paints, textures, colours etc but maybe it’s a simple as a refresh with good old magnolia?
Don’t think of this as boring – see it as a blank canvas, one that can be added to with other accessories for example.
Painting an all over colour is simple and cost effective giving you time to plan your look and it’s remarkable what a difference it can make to your home – transforming dingy, dirty walls into a clean, fresh and bright surface to adorn – or not.
This week we have been putting our all into revamping four, yes four, bathrooms.
Being bathrooms (and therefore tending to get a tad steamy) these needed a variety of techniques and it was great fun to combine them all.
Being an older property we had plenty of remedial work to undertake before we could even begin the decoration side of things.
Re-plastering where needed, sanding the wood down to it’s original glory, decorating the walls with a fresh, new, bathroom friendly waterproof paint, coating the many areas of woodwork with a toning cream colour before, finally, using a special mix of beautiful cornflower blue to spray-paint the feature bath in the main bathroom.
