 Post subject: An Integrated Dishwasher, not under counter?
PostPosted: Fri Jul 06, 2018 11:35 pm 
Hi, Im new, reaching out with a question that has me stumped.

I've got to install an integrated dishwasher (60cm) into a kitchen with very limited space. There's a 60cm (just) between worktop and a wall which a freestanding fridge is currently in there is no worktop above this fridge and this space is where the dishwasher has to go (it's the only place it can be).

Wondering if anyone has any ideas on how ...

 Post subject: Refitting gas hob
PostPosted: Fri Jul 06, 2018 2:33 pm 
Hi all

I am fitting a kitchen, worktops are in now so I want to get the hob fitted.

I'm using a gas hob that I removed from another kitchen that was being refitted in my friends house as it was in good shape but he wanted to change the colour

When I removed it from the old kitchen worktop there was a putty sort of material between the hob and the edge of the ...

 Post subject: Making kitchen drawers from MFC
PostPosted: Mon Jun 25, 2018 12:18 pm 
In the past when making drawers I've used wood and dovetailed the corners but for my current project I want to use MFC.
I will use 15mm MFC from Kronospan for the sides but not sure what to use for the base.
Will 15mm MFC work for a 650 by 900 drawer holding pots and pans?
Should I rebate the sides to take the base or is it better just dowelled and screwed.
Any help/advice ...

 Post subject: Credit where it's due for DIY-kitchens (first hand review)
PostPosted: Wed Jun 20, 2018 12:03 pm 
Sister has recently bought a new kitchen. I helped with the planning and various other bits but didn't do the fitting.

We tried DIY-Kitchens as I have seen them mentioned here. They had the exact style she wanted and it was in budget. The online ordering system was straightforward with lots of info there to help with the layout and measuring etc.
Price was excellent, not much more than buying from some of the other ...

 Post subject: Sealing in the kitchen Franke Sink
PostPosted: Thu Jun 14, 2018 10:02 am 
We bought a Franke Gemini Black 1.5 bowl sink for our new kitchen and have tried to run a small bead of sealant around the edge between the sink and the worktop however the sink's plastic is preventing the silicone from adhering to the sink.

Should i be using silicone or caulk? If i should be using silicone, what is the best that will adhere to the sink's plastic.

I have fitted and levelled all the cabinets, but i've decided to get a pro in to fit the worktops,

 Post subject: Extracting via chimney stack - do I need a liner?
PostPosted: Sun Jun 03, 2018 9:29 am 
Hi All,

We have recently moved into an edwardian semi and am in the process of updating the kitchen. Last owners built a hob into the opened out chimney breast but did not fit an extractor. I was planning to fit an extractor to vent up the stack with the assistance of the natural draw of the chimney as we had in a previous house where the chimney had a liner fitted.

Does anyone know ...

PostPosted: Wed May 30, 2018 11:08 am 
Dear All,

We've a small galley kitchen that needs ripping out and starting again. We've had some quotes from some companies but have been told that it may be cheaper to have the project go on for a longer time, and get individual tradesmen in. I just don't know which trade to call first. It needs: spot lights and a new socket (the freezer is currently plugged into an extension lead that goes under the ...
