TeknosPro injects new life into beautiful farmhouse

An 18th Century farmhouse based in Chobham, Surrey, has enjoyed a living room space and kitchen revamp with TeknosPro. Nick Sammut, a professional painter and decorator from Surrey based Rushmoor Painting & Decorating, who had previously spruced up the farmhouse’s tired exterior window frames with TeknosPro products, was delighted to return to the beautiful cottage to inject new life into the living room and kitchen.

The work required recoating the walls and ceilings in the living room along with the woodwork in the kitchen. As Nick’s customers had been so impressed by the finish and protection on the exterior of the farmhouse, they were keen for their interiors to reflect the same quality. TeknosPro 5 was used for the living room ceiling and walls; it is designed for dry indoor spaces and provides a full-matt finish with a low side sheen. The existing paintwork had been used to bridge the gap between the wall and the ceiling. However, as the original beams moved over time, the paint had become stuck on the beam making it look untidy. Nick fixed this with TeknosPro 5 taking into account the movement of beams, and also applied a coat of Timantti Stop, a primer to prevent any water stains.

The kitchen cupboards needed a bit of TLC along with fresh coats of paint to the room’s ceiling and walls. Futura Aqua 3, a waterborne primer was used on the wooden doors and drawers followed by two coats of Futura Aqua 20, a waterborne paint with a semi-matt finish. This brightened the space and gave it a beautiful new look while maintaining the aesthetics of such a historic building. 

Nick commented, “I love working with TeknosPro products. I know they are high-quality and leave an excellent finish, and now my client does too! They are really happy with the results. And, with the growing network of TeknosPro distributors, it’s so easy for me to get the right paints for each job.”

Rushmoor Painting & Decorating was formed in 2016. The team of professional painters showcases the best in artisan painting producing high quality finishes on projects of all sizes, as seen across their active social media channels. Using the right tools for the job and paying attention to detail, Rushmoor Painting & Decorating prides itself on great quality work which is enhanced by the excellent quality of paints portfolios, such as TeknosPro.
