Getting Value for Money
I have been noticing how shabby my kitchen is looking lately. It is only about 4 years since it was refurbished and I am thinking that perhaps my choice of cheaper materials was not such a good idea. The flooring is ripped in several places the tiles are dirty in the grouting the worktop has got water in it in the joins and has swollen up and one of the cupboard doors has a chip. I learnt a lot of lessons from that job and when we had the bathroom done we paid for top quality materials and we have had it for about two years now and it looks as good as it did when it was put in. I think that I will have to put up with the kitchen for a lot longer but I will get a better quality worktop which is all one piece so it has no nasty joins in it and a stainless steel backsplash to avoid dirty grouting and the more expensive but superior flooring that we have in our bathroom. It will probably cost as much to tidy up the job as it did to have it done in the first place.
