+1 for that. Given the total money you're spending anyway, it's crazy to skimp on the flooring beneath the units.I would run floor full way, that way when next change if kitchen or even removing a unit there are no gaps. Obviously cost a little more but probably not a whole lot in grand scheme. This would mean floor first then kitchen to be installed i would assume.
Thanks. It's not about saving money. We were thinking linoleum as a floor covering.. I was concerned that the kitchen units might "pinch" the linoleum when the kitchen units are put on top?+1 for that.

The easiest thing would possibly be to pour a floor levelling compound on top of what's already there. But it really depends on the condition of it. Flooring specialists deal with this every day, so I'd suggest asking for ideas before you buy the new flooring.If not, we will have to take up the existing glued to the floor lino and in the process we would be taking away lumps of screed underneath. Then have to go to the trouble and mess of having a new screed put down. Is it any easy job to put a new screed on top of a concrete floor as a DIY job?
I think this is very much personal choice. I'm not a huge fan of high gloss kitchens, but they can look very well in a modern kitchen.Would you choose a wood or laminate gloss style kitchen presses?
Yes, but it depends on where you are buying. Somewhere like IKEA for example have pre determined sizes. But other suppliers can get them custom made to order.Can laminate kitchens be bespoke?
Just looking at the Rangemaster as you posted. We like the look. The 60cm would suit us fine. Not too many stockists about though? Looking at the model with 4 gas rings on top, plus Grill below and then oven.Freestanding, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rangemaster, if their styles work with your kitchen. Had one, we moved house and I've bought another.
They're a little on the pricey side though; dual fuel 60cm is in the 800 - 900 bracket I think depending on model.
There are lots of stockists. They're custom ordered to your configuration as there are lots of options (colour, ring arrangement, etc).Not too many stockists about though?
Check out the Neff "Slide and Hide" ovens. (That's the one we have; other manufacturers may also have them.) Once the door opens fully, it slides away underneath the oven cavity. Gives the ideal position for taking stuff out at eye level, or just below, without having to reach over the open door. Much better (and safer) than bending down IMO.Two small people here. The standard oven probably suits better. Not to keen on stuff at eye level in case something spills or topples down on us as we take out of oven.
Brilliant option. I got one of these for a relative who had managed to burn their arm a few times on the door of an older oven. Have it 3 years +, and they love it.Check out the Neff "Slide and Hide" ovens.
Apologies, my use of "eye level" is misleading. You can get a built-in oven any height you want to suit when you're designing your kitchen.Not to keen on stuff at eye level in case something spills or topples down on us as we take out of oven.
