Overhead cupboards on plan confusing

That's not actually correct.
If its a pull out rangehood then the cabinet needs to be the same size as the rangehood! The OP never said what sort of rangehood it…

Can you use a bigger rangehood the same size as the oven?
That would allow you to get rid of the two small doors either side and have 6 doors very…

Waterfall Edge on floating laminate flooring?

Yes, if the waterfall is glued properly then the cabinets can take all the weight.
I prefer a mitre as I think the look better.

Cost to add overhead cupboard to fridge space

It depends on if its just one cabinet or you also need two large panels to the floor to support the cabinet.

All the builders you have spoken to are taking short cuts then!
When I do kitchens on laminate floors with waterfalls this is how I do it.

You have been lucky then.
There is a crazy high percentage of kitchens with vinyl wrap that have had many doors fail and the vinyl start shrinking, peeling or completely falling…

Google vinyl wrap, or just look back through the kitchen forum here and you will find your answer.
Short answer, NOOOOO

Difference between freestanding 90cm oven and built in 90cm

I have seen and done many like this, you should see the grime and gunk that builds up ontop of the kickboard after ten years!

Hideaway bin

I would have the pot drawer deleted and use the entire 600mm wide cabinet for a proper bin system. Trust me once you have used the top end bin systems…

What sort of runners are they?
I only use blum softclose runners and never have an issue them.

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…

A 600 or 900mm built in oven is almost always 596mm high by the cabinet width. Retro fitting a new one is actually very easy if you stay with the…

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.

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.
