We've decided to replace the 30yr old kitchen in our new house and have chosen DIY Kitchens, based on good reviews and huge choice on their website. I don't mind planning it slowly and getting it together over a few months, but as they've 10% off until 11th September we need to get it ordered asap. Trying to keep it under £10k, but we've got a big room (about 5 x 3.5m) to fill. I'll do most of the fitting myself.
Things we still need to decide:
Worktops. We want quality, so no laminate. Any advice? Wood? Granite? Something else?
Appliances. Anyone recommend a good place for a hob/fridge freezer/extractor/oven? Any brands we should look out for/avoid? Will second hand bits from ebay look crap in a shiny new kitchen?
Flooring. My mum and dad have flotex which feels lovely, lasts well and is warm. However, it’s a bit old fashioned. Any good alternatives?
Any other general tips gratefully received.
