    Here are a few pictures of a kitchen that got fitted back yesterday afternoon. Light levels weren't the best here yesterday afternoon so pictures not the most flattering of the colour.

    @YTS 83' thank you, glad to get two high gloss ones out of the way this week. Looking forward to the next couple being in satin finish over the next week, going to feel easy in comparison

    Just an amazing finish. Was it the same products as the bedroom cupboards?

    Looks great again @Michael W!

    I think the flat finishes are here to stay but the occasional high gloss item in a stand out colour is a good item as a statement.

    Not everyones cup of tea but personally I like a bit of high gloss! :yes:

    Thanks @ahenrypd @grumpyvandriver @Buckers. @Gazza @ahenrypd yes same products as the wardrobes, we use a polyester primer and a wet look pigmented polyurethane from Renner then cut and polish to bring out the clarity, although we have been testing a new system in the workshop over the last few weeks which is still polyester primer, then 5% matt pigmented polyurethane topcoat and then two coats of uhs clear which is a 2 pack acrylic that builds up amazing, a little more work but it is even higher gloss level and even better clarity and is even better to flat and polish. This system is also from Renner and we will be using it on our next high gloss kitchen in the coming weeks.

    @grumpyvandriver thank you so much and @bobajob thank you i take that as a compliment,but don't go to argos, if you are local I could always do with some more help,since Christmas it has gone off the scale, the next 5 weeks consists of 9 kitchens, multiple furniture refinishes, 4 jobs for a local cabinet maker and a potential contract with a local fitted furniture maker and with a local window manufacturer, then we hopefully (weather depending) head outside for 4 months of booked in external work mainly uPVC and a narrow boat moored on the Norfolk broads which is all the internal timber and there is only two of us and just too much work that needs to be top drawer.
