 Post subject: refacing existing kitchen
PostPosted: Sun Mar 18, 2018 7:33 pm 
Hi I have Benchmarx foil/vinyl wrapped kitchen which was fitted about 7 years ago .So far I see no signs of it peeling but as their kitchen fronts only carry a 5 year warranty I imagine it won't be too long before it starts doing so.With that in mind, I thought of having all doors and drawers replaced with a painted alternative or solid wood in a shaker style.The carcasses are fine and would appear ...

 Post subject: Rebate under worktop for lighting
PostPosted: Sun Mar 18, 2018 12:19 am 
Hello all, is it possible for me to cut a rebate onto their underside of a set of worktops forming a U shape in my utility? I've seen them installed in showrooms etc and was wanting to do it that way, otherwise I will have to plant a bit of wood on the carcass and screw the channel to that, making the LED strip visible, when I was trying to keep it hidden, it will ...

 Post subject: Ikea kitchen cabinets & other brand appliances/mechanisms
PostPosted: Sat Mar 10, 2018 7:22 pm 

I'm getting an Ikea kitchen but want to buy some of the appliances and internal mechanisms from another company to get better quality. I'm tearing my hair out trying to figure out whether they're compatible - any help much appreciated!

The first should be simple - a Miele extractor hood, it says it's a 60cm unit but the exact width is 595mm compared to 561 for the Ikea equivalent:

Second is the ...

 Post subject: Is my kitchen fitter fobbing me off?
PostPosted: Wed Mar 07, 2018 9:08 pm 
Hi i've just had a kitchen fitted.
The fitter was arranged through my builder rather than myself.
Throughout the fit he made me feel like he was doing me favour rather than a paying customer.
Anyway i'm not happy with the finish. One side of the wall cupboards are a good cm lower than the opposite wall which to my eyes is really obvious (trying to attach pics)

I've informed the fitter i'm not happy ...

 Post subject: Howdens Kitchen Accessories
PostPosted: Thu Feb 15, 2018 12:22 pm 
I have moved into a new house which has a Howdens kitchen fitted, however it was only a basic installation so I am looking to purchase some additional things to make it slightly easier to use - a cutlery drawer, a divider for the pan drawer and an under sink bin. The drawers are 600mm wide (externally)

I tried Howdens and they wont sell to me without a builder, and I don't want to hire ...

 Post subject: Rescue mobile phone from behind fitted wall units
PostPosted: Mon Feb 05, 2018 9:52 am 
Help my son managed to drop my mobile down the small gap between my fitted Cupboard and the wall
. The cupboard is part of a run with cornice top and bottom, and the walls are tricky to fit to ( old brick/ plaster and prone to being crumbly) so I’m hoping to avoid having to remove cupboards
Does anyone have any ideas? Is it feasible to cut through the back with a Stanley knife? ...
