Touch-up paint is available for all the kitchens that we sell. Here’s some information on how to get yours.
Matt painted kitchens
When you order a matt painted kitchen from us, you are supplied with a free pot of touch-up paint inside the fittings box, in case you need to cover up any accidents, once your kitchen has been fitted.
The pot of touch-up paint is supplied with a clear liquid, this is called a catalyst (hardener) and makes the paint tougher and more durable. The touch-up paint can be applied with a small brush.
The touch-up paint and catalyst should be mixed together, 2 parts paint to 1 part catalyst ratio. It should be mixed thoroughly and applied with a fine brush.
The paint takes about 60 minutes to dry.
Should you require anymore touch-up paint then this can be ordered through our sales team and it is £5 per pot (comes with the catalyst too).
How to mix the touch-up paint
This video will show you how to prepare and use the touch-up paint.
Gloss painted kitchens
Gloss painted kitchens are not supplied with any touch up paint, as we don’t paint the gloss finish. Should you need any touch up paint then this can be obtained in the form of a touch-up pen that we can obtain for you, but this is chargeable at £10 per colour pen and can be ordered through our sales team.

Hi, Can you advise what type of diluting medium is used in your touch up paint? Is it a spirit based solvent or water soluble?
Hi Simon, the catalyst we use is solvent based.

Hi there, why does it cost £30 delivery for a couple of small pots of touch up paint? This seems to be very excessive, nearly £50 in total.

Once mixed, how long does the paint last? What’s it’s shelf life
Hi, the paint and the catalyst, once mixed, will only last for 4 hours before it starts to harden.

Hi we have ordered additional paint to paint our own skirting we’ve used instead of plinths, do we put a wood primer undercoat on the wood before applying your paint and catalyst hardener? Thanks
