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 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.
We’ve showcased lots of our exterior projects lately – the spring and summer months bring people outside and train their eyes to the exterior of their properties.
With autumn now here we are thinking of the inside of our houses, of cosying up on colder nights and relaxing. We start to view the state of the interior – maybe its dull and needs brightening up, maybe tatty and needs refreshing or maybe you want to go all out and have a completely new look.
Whatever your thoughts we can guide you, advise you on the best techniques, the latest looks, simply what works and what doesn’t!
With the (dare I say the word) Christmas season approaching now’s the time to get booked in!
From the 16th to the 21st century, a careful renovation.
One of the projects we are most proud of has to be the restoration of the Chequers Hotel in Pulborough.
This charming hotel nestling in the heart of the Sussex Downs was looking very down at heel, its stunning history hidden under layer of peeling render, shabby woodwork and faded paint.
With the building dating back to 1548 we had to be incredibly sympathetic and ensure that everything we carried out was in keeping the splendour of hotel, maintaining its history whilst bringing it back to life.
They say a picture speaks a thousand words, in this case it is certainly true, browse through the pictorial tale of the renovation from start to finish.
Chequers really is such a charming hotel and we are delighted (as are the owners) with the finish achieved.
Do you look at your stairway and shudder at the thought of attempting to balance up there – let alone actually decorate?!
Then let the experts at K&R take charge!
We have completed scores of stairways and hallways both modern and traditional.
With a vast array of finishes using the option of a variety of techniques – including our fabulous ‘dustless sanding’ to strip back and reveal the former glory of your balustrade and our sleek ‘spray-paint ’service, giving a blemish free look.
All undertaken to your specification – we can source any colour & finish to perfectly suit your theme.
