It takes slightly longer to load but quick to unload. Hth X2 Yes it does take longer if you are fussy enough otherwise you can be like my wife & just chuck everything in there & not give a rats.... (S***s me to tears!) As a result she is banned from stacking the dishwasher. But as mentioned...

If money is no object then i say go your hardest but for us the expense was just way too much. We didn't shop around for our kitchen due to feedback from friends with the company we went with so maybe we had a disadvantage in our pricing & not playing two or more companies off against each other...

In the island bench there are 2 banks of drawers which are wider at 875. The bench is 1800 wide, the original plan was to be 2400 wide with 3 banks ...

just a question, why do the ends stop 5mm or so from the tiles? or is it just the light deceiving me? Hi Pitto, It's one of the fallbacks of renovating a 36 year old house. Unfortunately the floor isn't level & where the island is situated it exposes the problem even more. It's not so bad now a...

Hi tamekah76, We went with Pure Mineralstone Diamond Gloss finish in Flat Form & Waterfall edges. Our cabinets are 2 pack gloss in metallic white so sounds pretty close to what you are trying to achieve. You may want to find out if you are having waterfall edges if they are doing mitred joints o...

It's actually something I completely forgot about so have just ended up with a plain boring mixer. I will upgrade in the near future but it isn't a priority right now. http://i894.photobucket.com/albums/ac150/benschke/Kitchen-Living/New%20Kitchen/IMG_0637.jpg

Hi benschke, Can you tell me what is your glass colour and type (I mean plain glass or starphire-type)? Thanks :D Hi LEx, Not quite sure of the colour but it's a Citroen automotive colour (metallic) on starphire glass. Cheers.

We've also chosen the Bosch SMU68M05AU. it is super quiet (my must-have feature) and the clutlery drawer which gives more room in the bottom drawer. It dries well except plastics, which I think struggle in all DW (and hence are handwashed in our house). Snap!!
Snap!!

Hi, This is ours. Not quite sure of the colour but it's a Citroen automotive colour. We were trying to achieve the "Java Dusk Metallic" like Suh's daughter. Not quite the same but we are happy with the outcome. http://i894.photobucket.com/albums/ac150/benschke/Kitchen-Living/New%20Kitchen/...
