So many ppl buying Kraus! Is it that good? :sport-smiley-018: For something like kitchen sink, I have to see and feel before buying.

Maybe U can arrange with Sygnur to see and touch her sink :notti: :notti:

I think only hers is not installed. The rest of us mostly installed our sinks.

All the better to see and touch those installed ones...

Bleucheeze is welcomed anytime if u want to touch n feel my yet to install sink. :)

I agreed that some things we need to touch, feel and gauge before buying them.

As with the kraus sink,It's a risk that i took and im glad i like what i bought... :)

Haha, i think it's better to touch and feel an installed sink, and can test water run also! :sport-smiley-004: But I see so far so good for all who have bought Kraus right? Please don't poison me :P:bangwall:

So far so good for me. I dropped my Silit pot last Sunday while washing and my wife immediately stare at me.. :unsure:

Lucky it is ok.. hee...

Got some fine scratches cos I was abusing the sink. Ya. I never use the protective stand provided. I'm a lazy guy. :bleah:

Oh ya... Get a longer range tap for easier cleaning. My tap is very close to the edge and it splashed on the edge easily.

My next hse will have a pull out tap for easier cleaning.

Btw, if u are interested to see my sink. Drop me a PM. But I stay CCK, don't know if it is too far. :yamseng:

Hi, Cynta... Thanks for dropping by here.... :) but this gonna slow slow mo reno tblog, i assured u... :)

Yup, mine 4room but wil be doing the kitchen only.... 10k coz of the materials i ask them to quote... BLUM n Quartz... :P since not doing any built in wardrobe, no flooring needed or feature walls, think could splurge a little bit for the kitchen.. Which will be my forte..

How about u, cynta? I guess from ur quote, u are doing quite a number of things, right? :D have a smooth reno ya... :):yamseng:

Hola...its been a while since i check in to renotalk... Too much reading make me a very very stressful person hahaha...

Beginning to have a phobia when i listen to the word renovation...

As for mine, actually the 10k will b for flooring, kitchen and a false room for my son...

Since my flat is under sbf.. Itsntoo late tomopt for floorings..(well thats what the hdb officer said)

So u goin for id or contractor?

And mind to share where to get the krauss sink??

:) yeay, u're back....

Initially, me too, felt overwhlemed, overloaded with informations... But in the long run, it's good to read the tblogs here... Somehow, u'll gain some knowledge... :)

Hmm, i havent decided on one... Already went through 2nd quote review with two, and 2 more for round 1 just to have the comparison.

Ahhh... The Kraus sink... :) i got it through amazon. That was in aug 2012. My neighbour is ordering kraus sink and i piggy ride his shipment. :) ( as i didnt have acc with amazon at that time).

U got ur things( accessories n core appliances) already? 10k with flooring is good... But do check the tile price range they quote u... From what i read, $3/ tile range isnt that wide n most probably need to top up.

Oouh, i can feel the excitement for u already...( im weird, ya..) :P

Hi there, how much did u buy the kraus sink? Local or amazon?

Thanks

The only thing i have gotten for my kitchen is this KRAUS undermount sink... I went 'WOW' when i first saw it in kim76's tblog. Frankly, i had never went gaga over the sink till i set my eyes on this.

After poisoning my guy( the poison took long to get the effect, wahaha) i got the KRAUS 23" square undermount sink.

Tadaaa....

Like the finishing, and its rounded corner for easy cleaning.
