Did you install Blum soft closing for all drawers and doors for your kitchen cabinets? It's like $100+ per runner right? Was it in your kitchen cabinet quotation package or you got to top-up to get the Blum?

- s mentioned, all in for carpentry.

- kitchen accessories, eg hob/hood/sink/tap/oven, elect sw not included.

Hi,

I'm planning for my reno and my dear wife is insisting on having white kitchen cabinet. I think otherwise because I thought white will be easily dirty and guess who will be doing all the cleaning and complaining later :notti: . I'm also concern whether the white will eventually turn yellowish.

Can I check whether my concerns are valid and what is the best colour for kitchen for easy maintenance.

Thanks!

MmM I heard of that too but as my family rarely cooks I'm not worried. I think there was some comment about using some light chemicals to clean and your cabinets will look spanking new. Can't rem where I saw that comment though :P

I think white or black would look very nice for kitchen top but I have reservations especially if scratches can be very visible on these 2 colours. One of the recently renovated polyclinic is usually white solid top n the scratches can be seen clearly :jawdrop:

I am currently choosing kitchen laminate for cabinet doors.

I noticed many of you went for black or white laminate but I am worried of scratch-visibility (I cook a lot) and I also prefer the woodgrain series of laminate.

In particular, I love the classy graining of the LamiTAK series. One catches my eye very much, called Cafe Spectro, which has streaks of multi-colour woodgrains.

Although I find this laminate very unique, I am worried the graining is too much for the eye after some time.

What do people think of having woodgrain laminate all over the kitchen? Shd I go for the woodgrain for bottom cabinets and matt white laminate for wall cabinets? Would this look weird?

THANKS for any advice or input!

Then where do you put the appliances? :)

My suggestion is, if your kitchen top is not those granite or solid wood type, placed a soft mat between the appliances and the kitchen top.
