Feedback from our clients is very important. It’s great when you get praise for doing a good job, but equally important, if there’s something we’re doing wrong! See our testimonials below for what previous customers have to say…

From initial enquiry and meeting to final handshake, we trusted Russ with our kitchen, our dogs and our house keys! He presented and delivered an extremely professional service in a good old down to earth style. He was always on hand to provide advice and opinion when decisions were needed from us and went out of his way to do additional research for us.The fantastic quality of the finished job is testament to the detailed grafting he put into preparation and his skill in applying the final brush strokes. Russ transformed our kitchen at a fraction of the cost of replacing it.

James B,
Hand Painted Kitchen in Derbyshire
We are absolutely delighted with the 'new kitchen' and are so pleased that we chose this route rather than door or total kitchen replacement. We would recommend that anybody with good quality but tired, shabby looking cabinets have them hand painted,and definitely by you!
Thanks very much for all your hard work and your help with the rest of the colour scheme.
Finally we would be very interested were you to introduce a care/maintenance contact.

Thanks again

Mrs Grain,
Hand Painted Kitchen in Edwalton Nottingham
We were totally delighted with the results achieved on our rather dated hand made kitchen cupboards, island unit, large dresser and cooker surround. Russ was always most professional, concientous and passionate, going to great detail at every stage in order to achieve the total transformation of our kitchen following the replacement of all the worktops.The overall result reflected the care and attention to detail taken and even ran over by an extra day to that originally estimated in order to achieve that marvellous 'finish'. We would not hesitate engaging Russ Pike again for any future projects.

Again, many thanks Russ for a fantastic result.

Hand Painted Kitchen in Hereford
Many thanks Russ, for a great job on my kitchen. I have had many compliments on my "new" kitchen. My 20 year old hand built kitchen really does look and feel brand new for a fraction of the price of a replacement. Your full decorating service was excellent and reliable, very refreshing to have someone keep all their promises! We're now settled back in and it's a joy to cook and entertain, thanks again Ellen

Hi Russ,

Just a quick message to thank you soooooo much for all the effort and professionalism you put into making my kitchen look a million dollars. I very much appreciate the care you took and your attention to detail - not to mention you putting up with having me around much of the time.

I am so glad I found you instead of settling for an everyday painter and decorator. Outstanding! Thank you so much.


Sue Tattam,
Hand Painted Laminate Kitchen in Nottingham
For a fraction of the price of a new kitchen Russ has brought our 30 year old dull pine units into the 21st century! We now have a smart, light kitchen beautifully painted and good as new. Russ is hard working and enthusiastic about his craft, very efficient and professional and always helpful in advising.

Thoroughly recommend.
