Historically-inspired home painted with TeknosPro 


A new cottage in Chobham, Surrey, has been designed to mimic neighbouring cottages that were built over two hundred years ago.  

To give the home a beautiful modern touch which blends seamlessly in the cottage's historically-inspired framework, a full matt wall paint,TeknosPro 5, was used on the walls and ceilings. The coating was chosen for its easy application with both a roller and brush - which was needed to cut in around the wooden ceiling beams, fireplace and windows. TeknosPro 5 provides full coverage with a smooth finish and a quick drying time, leaving the homeowners very impressed with the results. 

The project was undertaken by Nick Sammut, a professional painter and decorator from Surrey-basedRushmoor Painting & Decorating. 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. Nick comments, "When you're a professional painter and decorator, you want good quality paint at an affordable price which is why I choose TeknosPro coatings."
