 Post subject: Joining two worktops to make a straight run?
PostPosted: Sat Jan 06, 2018 5:59 pm 
Evening folks

We are about to start our kitchen extension which will include a straight run of worktop- about 4.5m in length.

We are going for black American walnut from work top Express in the cheaper 40mm staves. Typically the longest length they sell as standard is 4m for £420. They can order a 4.5m length from Europe in 5-10 Weeks for £900! Not only is the delay annoying I would also worry it would ...

 Post subject: Dishwasher or Washing Machine Below an Wall Mounted Oven
PostPosted: Wed Dec 20, 2017 10:49 am 
Do any kitchen fitters have any tips for this?

We have quite a small kitchen and we are interested in making room for a dishwasher.

The only way I can fit it in is if I move the fridge and put the wall mounted oven above the dishwasher or washing machine. Are their units for this? Anything to consider regarding moisture etc?

 Post subject: Removing door/drawer front from integrated freezer?
PostPosted: Mon Nov 20, 2017 12:01 pm 
I'm in the process of freshening up my kitchen a bit and need to remove the draw/door fronts from my integrated freezer but I'm not quite sure on how to do so.

With the integrated fridge it was simple as there were just screws and brackets that needed to be unscrewed however on the freezer I have what looks like 4 slotted brackets with bolts (2 either side)?


I think I probably need to ...

 Post subject: Removing glass from kitchen cupboard doors?
PostPosted: Mon Nov 13, 2017 1:10 pm 
I'm in the process of stripping the vinyl from all my kitchen cupboard doors and drawers etc and painting them, which is going well, however I have a couple of glass fronted ones. I removed the vinyl from one over the weekend, masked the glass and painted it but I'm not happy with the edge I've got. I had some runs under the masking and a few bits where the edge is not great despite ...

 Post subject: Problems with undermount sink fitted to a quartz worktop
PostPosted: Sat Nov 11, 2017 9:21 am 
I fitted a new kitchen at the beginning of the year following an extension. We went all in a selected a company to fit a quartz worktop. The sink is a Franke 1.5 bowl under mount sink, 700mm wide.

The worktop was templated and subsequently fitted. When it came to the sink the fitters sealed with silicone and used blocks of quartz to create brackets which were glued in place with what looks like a ...

 Post subject: Granite worktop requirements
PostPosted: Sun Oct 22, 2017 6:10 pm 

So I've fitted a fair few kitchens now but coming up is my first with granite worktop...I'm not fitting the granite (specialists coming in for that) but I wanted to check whether I'm right in believing that I don't batten all the way round but just the normal: gaps for appliances and into corners?

Also, any other hints or tips welcome :thumbright: Thanks
