HAND PAINTED KITCHENS
When your home has a lovely kitchen within it, life feels that little bit better. Each of our hand painted kitchens has their own hand-writing; they all have something that makes them unique. But everyone is timeless. We pay attention to trends but we try to transcend them. We’re not interested in what’s going to come and go. We’re in it for the long haul.
Three of our four collections come in a hand painted finish as standard. We have a core collection of 28 house-blended paints. Every kitchen collection comes in a standard paint finish but you can opt to have it customized to any of our other shades. You can even have the exterior cabinetry in one colour, and the interior in something else. And its all painted slowly and carefully by hand.
THE SMOOTH HAND PAINTED FINISH OF TULIPWOOD
We opt for tulipwood in our kitchens for two reasons; its much stronger than poplar for cabinetry and it offers the ideal surface for painting. Tulipwood’s ultra smooth finish with very few knots guarantees a high – quality hand painted finish.
Each piece goes through a four stage finishing program. Initially cabinets are hand sprayed, this is followed by a further mid coat, further sanding, two top coats and a final hand finish. With more than a hundred of the Neptune team from skilled carpenters, hand painters and finishers, timber selection and quality control, we are able to do as much as we can ourselves; ensuring we choose the best materials, keep a close eye on quality throughout and make sure each piece arrives with you with as much care as possible.
