Re: Hardware question...

Re: Hardware question...

Hi, I cant actually remember. I used to fix kitchens, I do know that B&Q, Wickes and Homebase (maybe Ikea also) sell them seperately. When you get the documentation they don't actually tell you what there called either, they label it A,B,C etc. Ill try and find out what there called for you though.

Re: Hardware question...

Yep fitting my kitchen. I've got appliances and cupboards in nearly every room in the house. Oven and hob in the living room, dishwasher and cupboards in the dinning room. Worksurfaces down the hall not to mention the kitchen which is already fitted with most of the units on a temp basis..

My cabinets are from Focus. Got them in a 50% sale + 19% off for being a recent home mover. With those sort of discounts we went for the Country Oak cupboards - real oak doors

Focus currently have 60% off their kitchens and you might still be able to get another 19% off with the home mover discount. If not then 10% off is available to those over 60 on a tuesday so if you're under 60 take a parent/grandparent

We bought the oven and hob from them but took the sink/taps back they were very poor quality the sink was like tissue paper microns thin and cut my hands to pieces it was sooo sharp utter rubish the oven and hob are excellent Italian made and no warning lights beep beep

Re: Hardware question...

I don't let the German influence in our appliances filter into my choice of vehicles. Closest I've been to that was my Seat Ibiza. Around the house though it's the Bosch range - oven, hob, extractor, fridge, freezer, dishwasher........microwave though is a Samsung

Sink from B&Q, taps and everything else (plumbing and electrics) from toolstation.com

Not sure what kind of reaction I'm going to get asking for sex bolts. But here goes.. back in 30 mins unless I get arrested

I imagine you have gone and bought them now but you dont need them just screw the cabinets together underneath the door hinges and hey presto concealed screws but dont forget to pilot drill the first cabinet first and countersink the hole or the hinge wont sit properly

You had a look on screwfix Rob?

They usually have most types of fixings.

Re: Hardware question...

B&Q Stockton have a massive rack full of all the odd knobbly lumpy obscure fittings and fixings.
