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.
See, when you say Painter and Decorator, what comes to mind? Walls! Walls and woodwork – aha, woodwork! Where does that come from?
We are fortunate to have a skilled team that can turn their hands to a variety of specialist areas – one of which is carpentry.
Now, we’re not saying we can climb on a roof and do the technical stuff that a super qualified chippie undertakes, they really are masters of the trade – however, when it comes to useful shelving, space making stud walling or even some tidy ‘boxing in’ of those unsightly pipes, we excel!
Having the ability to undertake a project from start to finish makes for an efficient and tidy and hopefully unobtrusive job.
Take a look at our slideshow of ‘carpentry’ based projects, I’m sure you’ll agree we really can offer it all!
West Sussex is renowned for its love of horses, think Goodwood Races and The Cowdray Gold Cup for starters!
Synonymous with this is the ample amount of stabling and livery yards dotted around these areas.
It used to be that these were simply functional places to stable your horses – and of course this is still mainly the case.
We have in recent years been commissioned to undertake a higher more decorative specification instead of the standard finish – primarily as these areas are more frequently being used for celebrating the season’s achievements.
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.
