Criticise my kitchen plans

You need to get a shop drawing of how the shadowline/channel setup would work. It needs to have szies on it so you can make up your mind with all…

Shadowline and sharknose are two different things.
Shadowline is just a shadow/gap left between the top of the door and under edge of the benchtop. It can also have an…

I would be wary of paying 85% before even seeing your kitchen. This should be all outlined in the contract before paying the deposit.
