Kitchen Respraying: What is it & Why Do You Need it?

A kitchen respray extends the life and look of your kitchen whilst also being an economical way of updating without costing the planet more of its resources.

Kitchen resprays are rapidly growing in popularity with more and more people realising that if you are happy with the layout of your kitchen and it is structurally sound, then why replace the whole kitchen for a change of colour or sheen.

If you choose a kitchen respray, you will also save 80% – 90% of the cost of buying a new kitchen.

Why Choose Respraying Over a New Kitchen?

Kitchen Spraying Saves Money

Kitchen resprays are extremely cost effective and if your kitchen is in good condition, a respray will cost you around 80% – 90% less than buying a new kitchen.

A lot of our customers still choose to change appliances, worktops and sometimes tiles however they can afford to up their budget on these items as they are retaining their kitchen.

Kitchen Spraying Saves Time

Kitchen spraying is usually completed in one to two days. The upheaval of having a new kitchen takes a lot longer and when issues arise, can drag on for extended periods of time.

Kitchen respraying offers the same fantastic finish in rapid time, without cutting corners on preparation, quality or the final result.

Kitchen Spraying Saves Mess

There is nothing worse than having your house upside down for weeks on end with workmen traipsing in and out with dusty feet. You never quite feel like you will ever have a clean house again. To top it off, you then get left with all the mess to clear up and take to the tip.

Kitchen resprays are usually completed in a day or two and we take all our rubbish with us.

The Kitchen Respraying Process

The success to a great kitchen spray is all in the preparation. If you know how to spray, this is the easy part. Here is the process of spraying a kitchen:

Planning the Kitchen Respray

Before our team attend to spray a kitchen, a job sheet is completed which details how we will tackle the kitchen in the least disruptive and most efficient way for ourselves and you, the customer. We will assess the layout, the space, the material we will be spraying, whether it will be beneficial to complete the whole kitchen spray on site or complete half of the kitchen spray at our bespoke spray booth. Every kitchen has its own plan and when you have sprayed over 350 kitchens, the planning becomes more and more efficient each time.

The Kitchen Respray Instructions

We will always leave a set of instructions if there are tasks to do prior to our arrival. This usually involves the emptying of all the kitchen cupboards and drawers. At times there may be additional advisories which will always be noted on the agreement. These instructions will then be visible to the sprayers so they are fully informed regarding the whole process.

Removal of the Cupboards and Drawers

When the team arrive the first step is to remove all the kitchen cupboards, drawers and hinges (if spraying the full internal carcasses). Each of the removable items are numbered so that when the kitchen is being put back together, nothing goes amiss. We bring special racking so all the doors are kept together in a compact fashion. There are occasions where we will remove the doors and bring them back to our spray booth if it is a large kitchen. All handles are removed and also numbered.

Masking the Kitchen

This is the longest task that the team will complete. They will create meticulous lines and ensure that there is no overspray anywhere.

Anti static, dust attracting, plastic sheeting will cover any large appliances, sofas etc. Blue sticky film covers the floor. Brown paper is used to ensure all work surfaces, tiles, splashbacks, built in appliances and cooker hoods are covered and masking tape to ensure that all the lines are straight.

Scotching and Cleaning the Kitchen

All surfaces that require spraying must be scotched to key the surface and allow the coating to bond. This is not the same as sanding. It leaves less hazing and scratching than sand paper. We use panel wipe to clean the surface. This is a superb cleaner which ensures the final removal of surface contamination. We do ask the customer to clean any stubborn grease and grime prior to our arrival.

The Spraying of the Kitchen

The first coat of spray is a dust coat and this will show us if there is anything on the surface that needs further cleaning. The second coat will then grip to the first coat and same with the third to the second. We build the coats up very thinly to give the flawless finish. This makes the kitchen look like it has been made in this colour, not sprayed.
