What paint should we use on our kitchen cabinet doors to create an aged Georgian feel?
We’re redesigning our kitchen, and want to use traditional panelled doors and cupboards in a Georgian style, taking inspiration from the doors seen around Spitalfields Market. We’re wondering what type of paint we should use to recreate the style we’re after.
The Georgian buildings you’re referring to date back to the 1720s, and the quality of the paintwork comes from a steady layering over a couple of centuries, so don’t expect to replicate it in one go! You need the correct colour pallette and a decent paint. We recommend The Little Greene Paint Company; its paints have a thick, dense quality that build up to create a stylish look when dry.
