    True.

    The thing is the quality of the doors and cornices, pelmets and such.

    If you have shaped MFD which is wrapped with a plastic it looks good for a few years but if you get any scratches or cuts anywhere it is just a matter of time before the wrap falls off.

    Seasoned solid wood with preservative and finished with a water resistant finish in my view is the best to go for.

    thats whats in our house , were planning to get it painted by a well regarded specialist , im guessing its a few grand however , know a couple who got a regular painter to paint their kitchen and it really doesnt look convincing , im hoping to replace hinges and knobs too

    Could strip it and get it sprayed.

    We were quoted approx €1500 for repaint by specialist for average size kitchen - L shape 14ftx12ft

    Higher cost of €1800 if we were going with dark colour. Probably would mean extra coat.

    Thought it was reasonable - no spare cash at moment though.

    We're in the process of getting a new kitchen. It's financial terrorism unfortunately...€28,000 for the kitchen and €10,000 for the appliances.

    They may have expensive materialistic tastes but I wonder how many of these women have the skills to dish up a tasty morsel in their shiny new expensive kitchens :p
