One of the most important rooms and often one of the hardest to keep “on trend” is usually the Kitchen. This is due to the cost of fully replacing them once they go out of fashion or start to look old and dated.
With the relatively new option for having your kitchen resprayed rather than replaced Spraylords have seen a huge increase in customers contacting us to change the colour of their kitchens, bringing them back “on trend” and saving them a huge sum of cash in the process.

A Brief History of Farrow & Ball Paint
It all started in Dorset, where Richard Ball and John Farrow. During the Second World War, Farrow was trained as a chemist and he worked for an Irish company called Agnew Paints, while Ball was an engineer who had survived imprisonment as a POW.
They met at a local clay pit, where they both had the same enthusiasm for creating colourful, innovative formulas with only the finest ingredients.
The company produced industrial paints and developed a reputation for quality, which it continues to this day. In addition to Ford Motor Company, Raleigh Bicycles, the Admiralty and the War Office, they also painted military vehicles for the Royal Navy and Air Force.
In the late 1960s, John Farrow and Richard Ball sold their company to Norman Chappell. However, shortly after, a major fire destroyed much of the historic factory.
So, after more than four decades in the town of Finchley, Farrow & Ball relocated to its present site near Wimborne.
Farrow & Ball maintained its original recipes and techniques during the 1970s and 1980s, when many people were developing acrylic paints with fewer pigments and additional polymers.
From January 2010, they made the brave decision to transition our entire line of oil-based paints to eco-friendly water-based finishes with low VOCs. Making sure that their paint and wallpaper are as environmentally friendly as possible.
“Joining the Hempel Group will offer new opportunities to further support Farrow & Ball’s growth and development. The fit is a good strategic match: we share similarly strong heritage, sustainability principles, and are leaders in our field. We complement each other in our ambitions and look forward to working together to continue to transform homes around the world with our iconic colours,”
Anthony Davey, CEO of Farrow & Ball.
