Price difference between glass splashback and mirror glass s

It really depends on where you get the mirrored splashback from. By law they should be toughen mirrors but there are a lot of shonks putting in cheap standard mirrors…

Where to position sink in kitchen island

1000mm is not that large for food prep especially if cooking for a family.
If you set the sink in 300-500mm from one end it allows you to stack easily. Remember…

Personally I would offset the sink towards one end of the bench top.

Cupboards Or Drawers?

First off trying to find a cabinet maker willing to retro fit drawers to an existing kitchen will be very hard.
Drawers behind doors are a real pain to use and…

No don't do it!
It will cost you a lot more money to do it this way.

Well unfortunately it seems like you don't have any option then.

I am going to be very honest here, all those bins above are cheap and nasty. The runners are 30 years old and are not very smooth and will fail.

Thoughts on mirrored glass splashback

I really like mirrored splashbacks.
Don't worry what other think, if you like it then go for it.

ultraglaze or 2 pac

Personally I would always use 2pac for a few reasons.
2pac is available in 1000s of colours and any finish from matt to gloss.
You can pick any colour from any paint…

I haven't used it but I sounds like Vinyl wrap renamed.
Personally I would never use any vinyl doors in a kitchen!

Just sell the dish drawer and replace it with the one you want. 99% of dishwashers including the dishdrawer fit into a 600mm opening.
