Doors Galore!

Doors, the entrance to your home…

We all think about decorating the insides of our homes and offices, nothing better than a fresh lick of paint, a new look to walk into is there!

You have to walk through the front door first though… take a good look next time, what do you see?

Is it time for a refresh?

All our external woodwork is expertly prepared, based and finished giving you a visual but durable new look.

Job finished in Midhurst using Dulux weather shield system.

And the scaffolding is finally down!

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!

Perfect for our project then!

Take a look at the photos.

 

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.

 

   

 

 

Stable Revamp

Finally finished! You may remember some time ago we told you we were starting a large stable refurbishment in the local area?

Using our popular spray painting technique we stripped the rusty original down, prepared it and then resprayed in a suitable paint finish.

We had a bit of a blip during the project – David unfortunately was hospitalised and subsequently had his appendix removed. Kev to the rescue, along with a quickly drafted sub.

Job finished on time, delighted client and David recovered well. If you want to see what we have done internally then please see our previous stable decoration.

Here’s some before & after pictures…

 

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!

Exterior Makeover in Arundel

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.

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 Beams

Beautiful Beams

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?

Plain & Simple

Sometimes all you need is magnolia!

magnolia

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.
