Change of plan

The oak kitchen didnt work out - they changed the hob and then said they hadnt but the lady that I was dealing with let me know that they had!!!  Not impressed and then the price for the other units came back so high - it just started to feel like - why are we doing it was back to the drawing board. I have spent all weekend ringing around kitchen showrooms - there maybe a possibility at "In toto" in Birmingham (someone is ringing me back on Monday - the lady that I spoke to was lovely and told me about two kitchen - she knew one had gone but wasnt sure which and there was a kitchen there that was a cancelled order (hadnt even been out of the box) not sure which if any is available so am looking forward to hearing more.  Meanwhile a lovely lady a Magnet today told me about an ex display - she sent me the picture below
They do not make the range any more, however some of the units not shown on here are a cream textured one which breaks it up - so I thought I can get my tall units (cooker, microwave and food) in the cream. Unfortunately the range doesnt come in a tall unit other than a 300. The lady recommended I got their cream gloss - she thinks it will go beautifully. This photo is an actual photo of theirs, the ones for sale are the wall units on the left and the run with the sink and with the hob.  She said the worktop alone cost them 2K - it is a mixture of granite and quartz -  the product is called Roxx and its really think - the colour is a bit like concrete but polished - its supposed to be very very durable and rather beautiful.  The sink is included but not the hob but at least there is a cut out there so one can be placed in it.  The talls are not included hence my needing to get some in cream. There are units on both sides of the island and some are cream plus theres another two wall units in cream.  We will see what prices they come back with tomorrow.

Be back soon to record what happened.  This extension is going to cost so much to have done - we have got to keep a rein on the budget for the kitchen - some days I feel full of energy and drive and other days - aaagh!!!
