We have just had our kitchen units painted by Richard. He was extremely helpful and offered lots of advice regarding colour combinations etc. His workmanship was first class and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone thinking of using FX Decor
Riven Brace
Richard did an amazing job repainting our kitchen units - the finish he achieved was superb, especially considering the dark green colour we chose is relatively uncommon. He was always prompt and did all the work with absolutely no mess or mishaps, so we're super happy with our transformed 'new' kitchen!
Lisa Mackenzie
We have nothing but praise for the professional way in which Richard completed our kitchen cabinet refurbishment. He arrived and returned exactly when he said he would and the work was carried out with the minimum of disturbance to us. Nothing was too much trouble for Richard and we have no hesitation in recommending FX Decor if you need to renovate old and tired kitchen cabinets. We are extremely pleased with the finish.

Richard (FX Decor) has done many jobs for us, and the results have been five-star every time. His work is excellent, and nothing is too much trouble. Friendly, courteous and yet painstakingly perfectionist. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Warwick Thompson
Thinking about the impact on the environment, it was important for us to keep our old wood kitchen, which felt outdated but was in still good condition after 16 years. Richard was super helpful all the way though the process, advising when we needed to involve other contractors for the work top and carpentry, and very patient in answering all my questions! Richard carried out the paintwork with minimal interruption to our lives, and kept to the timings originally set. The process of working with Richard was beyond my expectations and I cannot recommend him highly enough and his workmanship and attention to detail was excellent We are delighted with our hand painted kitchen, which feels and looks like a brand new kitchen and was achieved for a fraction of the cost of a new one.

Thanks again Richard- still love walking into my beautiful kitchen after all these months!

Kindest regards

Thank you so much for tranforming our old, tired pine funiture, it looks beautiful. We now have a modern and smart dining room. Cannot thank you enough, so professional and skilled.
Pam Raines
We are delighted with our revamped kitchen which has been transformed from a dark old fashioned pine kitchen to something bright, light and looking so much larger. Richard has played a pivotal role in achieving precisely what we wanted. Apart from his painting expertise he has been marvellous to work with. Meeting every deadline, open to any suggestions and happy to offer creative advice when required. His sunny disposition shone through. We would recommend him and his company without hesitation.

Hi Richard Thank you for the transformation you have made to our kitchen, booked for just before Christmas there was no change in dates, no worry that we wouldn’t Tt be finished, you arrived as you said and were so tidy, it was no disruption at all, your carpenter did a great job too on our worktops, and we now have a new kitchen, we are so pleased and so glad we didn’t opt for new units, ours may be 15+years old but you wouldn’t know that now. Great job, looks fantastic anyone thinking about it should definitely go ahead, well worth it and great value for money.
Thank you.

Review received for Hand painted kitchen Wingfield in Wingfield Suffolk

We have just had our kitchen transformed by Richard, from the moment we met him we knew we had found the right person. We had hand built pine units which were in very good condition but after 15years felt it was time for a change, it now looks like a new kitchen we are absolutely thrilled with the result. We would recommend Richard without hesitation.
John and Sandra
Hi Richard

Hope you had a good Christmas and New Year.

Just wanted to let you know how delighted we are with our 'new' kitchen - it has been transformed. Having such a well built kitchen it would have been such a waste to scrap it and start again and by painting it and changing worktop and handles the 23 year old kitchen now looks brand new. From the comments we have received most people can't believe it is the same kitchen. Very much appreciated your help, advice and professionalism. I had expected dust, mess and smelly paint so was very pleasantly surprised none of this was the case. I have already recommended you to friends and would happily sing your praises to anyone. We don't let just anyone have a key to the house but felt happy to trust you.

very best wishes,

Sarah & John

Review received for Kitchen renovation in Balsham Cambridgeshire

We have had a solid Pine Bryan Turner kitchen for the past 20 years. Due to the quality of build it has lasted the test of time. So we thought not about replacing the kitchen but getting it hand painted. My wife did her usual research and found Richard's website and was attracted by the transformations that took place and the end result of his work.

Richard works in a very methodical way causing minimum disruption and mess. I have to say we are both delighted with our NEW kitchen, friends and family cannot believe the transformation...yes I have used that word twice in this review but I cannot think of another way to describe the change..

Thanks David & Marlene
David and Marlene
We had an old (20+ years)waxed pine kitchen that I absolutely loved, but which was very tired-looking. Richard has completely transformed it with a light modern paint, and all done with the minimum of fuss and disruption. Richard was a pleasure to work with - friendly and professional - and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Anne Taylor
Richard has completely transformed our kitchen. It is now contemporary, bright and feels very high-end. We had a good quality kitchen with solid oak doors but it was tired-looking and with quite an 'orange' oak finish. We couldn't just throw out the units and start again as we felt this would be wasteful financially and environmentally and we'd quite simply be putting new units in the same place as the current ones! We got a couple of quotes to have the kitchen painted and chose Richard because his craftsmanship and attention to detail simply shone through. The fact that everything is hand painted to such a high quality makes all the difference - the finish is simply beautiful and not something that feels rather plastic if 'spray-painted' instead...

We would recommend Richard wholeheartedly. He was accurate to the initial quote (no hidden extras), on time and clearly expert at what he does - it show in everything he has done.

Richard, FX Decor Ltd has worked on all my interior design projects since 2000 both in England and France. He still continues to do so. He has had a key to my home since then. The ongoing nature of our working relationship is a testiment to his skills; his vast knowledge of painting and decorating products and how they can be used to their full potential, his eye for colour, his project management skills and his network of other high quality home improvement specialists. He starts a job when he says he will, never leaves a job unfinished and is a careful, clean worker who is unobtrusive. He is a great guy who has the confidence to say when he believes your ideas won't achieve what you are seeking. A recent project was a refurbishment of my country style kitchen to something more modern but still in keeping with my home which is a barn. I was dithering with colours, changes to the work surfaces and style of the units. He played a pivotal roll in helping me specify my requirements and then delivered them including managing other workers. He had a knack of finding a way to get over the inevitable hurdles that such a project presents. As always I was highly delighted with the finished product.

Review received for Kitchen renovation in Shotesham All Saints

From the initial preliminary contact to the completed kitchen, everything was done in a friendly and professional manner and on time. The final cost was the same as the quotation - almost unheard of in this day and age!!

To transfer a dark mahogany kitchen into a bright vibrant white one was a joy to behold. Thank you Richard for a first class job. We would certainly recommend you to anyone.
Margaret and Richard, Rampton
Thank you Richard for a superb transformation of our kitchen.

When we bought our house the existing kitchen was of excellent quality but the very dark wood, layout and style were not to our taste. Richard pulled together a great team to adapt the cabinets and replace the worktops, then worked with us to choose colours and door knobs to rework the kitchen beautifully.

We were braced for mess and upheaval but Richard's methods kept this to the absolute minimum. It was a long project but it was a pleasure to have Richard working in the house, even during school holidays! He was hard working, reliable, friendly and a real expert.

I have since recommended him to friends and would definitely work with him again.
Samantha & Kem
Richard has completely transformed our kitchen. We are delighted with the end result & my wife is inviting all our friends to come & admire the work of a true professional. We would recommend Richard without reservation. In life you get what you pay for---looking at our kitchen we think had a very good deal. Many thanks Richard-we enjoyed having you in our home.
Eileen & Terry Cooper
We moved into our new house in October 2015. The one thing that we weren't happy with at the outset was the dark wood in the kitchen. From reading reviews on his website, it wasn't hard to choose Richard as the one to transform our old kitchen and we can't fault what he has done. Right from the first meeting, Richard showed the passion and enthusiasm that we were looking for and we can not thank him enough for our "new kitchen". I would certainly recommend him to anyone.
Jon & Jo, Cambridge
It took me a while to take the plunge to have my kitchen units painted but once I had contacted Richard I wish I had done it sooner! What a super person Richard is from start to finish he was great - very professional and I would highly recommend him. I now have a kitchen when people walk in they say wow.
Alison from Suffolk
A friend recommended Richard to us and so we had seen the quality of his workmanship in her house. Richard was professional from start to finish, matching the colour of the units in the 'old' part of the kitchen with the newer units we had put in the breakfast area when undergoing renovation work a few years ago. We now have a bright and co-ordinated kitchen/breakfast room and with the pine dresser painted to match it has transformed the space. We were amazed that it was such a hassle-free experience with no dust or mess! Richard takes everything he can back to his workshop to be painted there and so was only at our house for 3 days to prepare and paint the carcasses and finally to re-assemble everything and fit new handles to complete the look. He pays great attention to detail and is extremely helpful and efficient. We can highly recommend him.
Geoff and Jennie
Richard was recommended to us via a local trade paint supplier and although initially wary our concerns were soon alleviated following an early meeting with him.
His advice and precise explanation of the quite "in depth" process proved to be absolutely spot on and now we have a completely transformed kitchen at only a proportion of the normal refurbishing cost.
I have no hesitation in recommending Richard who proved courteous, obliging and highly competent throughout the whole process.
Great experience and a brilliant result.

Kitchen refurbishment - Clare - Suffolk

"As part of the renovation of our period property we had a bespoke and expensive kitchen fitted in the 1980's but being of that era it was in pine.
With this finish now being outdated and looking somewhat tired we were faced with the dilemma of total replacement or a refurbishment.

With replacement being both very costly and wasteful we opted for a repaint and an upgrade of fittings, using FX Decor.
The transformation was fantastic , the quality and durability of the finish are way beyond our expectations and with the minimum of disruption to our life, the house feels like it has the new kitchen it deserved and at a fraction of the cost.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard and FX Decor to anyone considering a refurbish."
Paul & Julie Elsegood
Having our tired old 80’s kitchen painted by Richard has without doubt been the most stress free experience we have ever had of “having work done”.
My initial enquiry was handled promptly and comprehensively, all further queries equally so, giving us every confidence that even before a single paint stroke we would get a first class job.

Needless to say the kitchen units now look fantastic, beautifully painted, repaired where necessary and all with the minimum of disruption.

I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Richard, a true professional who takes great pride in his work with outstanding results.
Jan & Steve
We have recently had our kitchen hand painted by Richard, who in our opinion is not only a lovely guy to have around but a very talented professional painter.
Our kitchen is completely transformed and looks amazing.

We were so thrilled to find someone who could actually hand paint our kitchen and with minimal disruption too.

We can't recommend Richard highly enough, a pleasure to have in the house, very obliging and an all-round lovely guy who takes pride in everything he does.
Karen and Rod Joyce

We are extremely pleased with the painting of our kitchen units.
We have now got a new kitchen ( after also having new Worktops and floor at a fraction of the cost).

A very professional gentleman to do business with, we would definitely recommend to friends / neighbours. Thank you.
Mr & Mrs j Stowmarket
Richard managed to transform my kitchen from an outdated Pine affair to a very bright and modern look by painting the cabinets. The finish is superb and I feel that I have a new kitchen without the expense of replacing the old one.

No fuss, no bother, just good workmanship. Thank you.
