Here is the latest kitchen.

Colour is F&B farrows cream
custom made cloud blue glass splashbacks
Shaker style in flat frames
Random widths T&G end panels
Composite stone tops (copy of Carrera marble, obviously the really thing is not suitable for kitchens)
Neff and Miele appliances

Nice job Bob, though i'm not keen on the colour or handles.

Gotta' be fun making the holes for the power sockets in the glass.

I expect the splashbacks are templated once the kitchen is installed and the electric points marked out for cutting by the glass supplier. It'll be toughened glass (or just normal with a safety backing?), so any cutting would have to be done before the toughening process.

Cheers

I dont know how the glass is fitted but would you not get condensation building up behind it

Doctor Bob - can I just give you one piece of advise regarding your glass splashback...

Don't put a wok or any large pan on that back ring of the hob. I have the same splashbacks and I always cooked using the wok on the back ring but the edge of the wok is about half an inch away from the glass. no problem I thought. over time a dark patch has appeared BEHIND the glass panel. turns out the heat going up the outside of the wok has affected the glue and turned it dark.

just thought I'd mention it before you ruined yours!

other than that... good job there!

I think those colours work really well together.

Could you tell us a bit more about the construction of the units and doors bob?

Hi Bob, what timber do you make your kitchens out of and do you have any internal photos you can put on here
Many thanks
Dave

The glass is all foil back, so it wouldn't matter, but I doubt you would, never had it so far.

lovely work as usual Bob. Just lacking butt hinges for that extra look of quality
Does anyone make a dummy butt hinge ?

The client usually chooses concealed soft close because they don't like butts.

I can understand why customers would choose softclose for the ergonomics, but I always think inset doors look as though they're lacking something when theres no visible hinge. Hence my question re dummy hinges, which would give you the soft close action and the appearance of a "proper" hinge

May I refer the honourable gentleman back to my previous answer....

the way concealed hinges work would make it difficult to fit a dummy hinge which projects a bit as it would catch the frame, plus no one asks for them

Very nice job

But a bit to bland for me

Maybe I would have put a bigger coving / pelmet / overhang at the top with lights in it.
