Polo Club Revamp 2019

Fabulous revamp of the prestigious Cowdray Park Polo Club, Ambersham, West Sussex.

This was a full-on project, necessary before the upcoming Polo season!

With the wooden floors and bars stripped back we applied a special wood dye and finished off with a durable lacquer.

Woodwork over and done with we dusted off before embarking on the paintwork including spraying the ceilings with Johnstone’s white vinyl matt and painting the walls in a Farrow & Ball ‘elephants breath mixed with Johnstone’s soft sheen for the perfect finish to the hall.

We then moved on to the kitchen and bathrooms, painting these in a white vinyl silk before completing all woodwork with an oil-based gloss.

We’re sure you’ll agree from the photo’s that it was a job well done!

A little TLC makes a lot of difference.

Take a look at this latest project.

 It doesn’t look like there’s much wrong with the property does it? Sometimes that’s the way, things just get tired and need refreshing.

This home was one of them. A much needed sand down, some wood repair and a fresh coat of paint to both render and woodwork. This house can stand proud once again.

 

   

 

 

Complete house re-decoration in Petworth

Sometimes it’s one room – sometimes an entire house that needs redecorating.

This one is a beauty! Set in Petworth with wonderful views across the downs the house needed a clean, fresh and neutral look so that is what we did.

With the walls rolled in Wimbourne white vinyl matt and the woodwork sprayed in the white aqua satin this home is now a blank canvas ready for colour injection – or not!

Window Frames & Doors

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.

Beautiful Bathrooms

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.

Pop over to our Facebook  page for more makeovers as they happen.

Woodwork

We all talk about painting and decorating and instantly we’re thinking walls – do you agree?

But, what about the other – probably more fiddly bits? Like the woodwork!

Doors, skirting, balustrades, window frames – there’s a lot there.

These take a fair bit of time. You think, you have to strip, sand, and prime before you can actually do the visible bit.
