how much deposit do you have i would be scared ----less with a $700,000 mortgage assuming rates go up to 7 or 8 percent in the next few years you would be looking at $1,200 per week mortgage repayments Sorry, to reply to your question - we had a deposit for the land and a guarantor for the house bu...

Looking on google a settler vinyl wrap door looks similar to the shaker style that is very popular at the moment. Unfortunately the two easiest ways to achieve that looks is with vinyl or paint. Melamine doors are very affordable because the material is produced in large sheets and doors are cut out...

If you look at what is being pushed at high end kitchen exhibitions all over Europe, thin is most certainly "in" when it comes to bench tops. The Australian market is always a bit different though. Some might take that as we are behind but I don't think so at all. Rather, we have a differe...

Could please you clarify. If the material fails to perform under the recommendations in your design guides are you saying that it won't be covered by warranty because you only warranty the slab prior to installation? I don't think I quite understand.

That image doesn't look at all like Tawny Linewood does in person. It is much lighter and the stripe is very pronounced. I think the colour in person works even better with Rock Salt than in the image posted. Both are quite warm so you'll want warm tones in your stone too. Not necessarily so warm th...

I wouldn't use a solid colour laminate as a kitchen bench, either in a gloss or matte finish. I'd be surprised if you got through prestart without them trying to talk you out of the plain white top. Formica AR Plus is pretty much the same thing as Laminex Diamond Gloss so you can expect the same dur...

Timber veneers are really pretty but quite expensive. Some of the textured melamines look very convincing now. Unfortunately the colour range is a bit limited at the moment compared to veneers and basic melamine.

If joins are a concern I would look into acrylic benchtops. You can do all the same things as with a stone (and more) but the joins are completely invisible. I have an acrylic top at my work which apparently is too long not to have a join and I have spent plenty of time looking for the join but I ca...

Sorry, I didn't mean to cause any trouble with my post. I'm no expert in laminate and I haven't even installed a laminate bench myself but I think I've seen undermount sinks in laminate benchtops in overseas kitchens yet haven't seen one in Australia. Not sure if they use compact laminate or normal...

Not with a standard laminate but you could do it using a compact laminate. Standard decorative laminates are less than 1mm thick and need to be applied to a board product for strength and support, usually particle board for a bench. When a sink hole is cut, it exposes the particle board and while it...

Surely it would still be covered by the Laminex manufacture's warranty though and you'd be able to go directly through them?

There is a new essastone colour, I think it is called torrone? It is like new basmati but whiter and less busy but still with more pattern than the dusk or crystal salt. No brown either.
