    Yeah my kitchen floor is dying. The last owners retiled when they put the kitchen in; big fucking tiles too, around 300x400 I'd say. Laid onto a ply floor, and they are cracking. At some point we'd like to re-tile, but that's a big job because the kitchen units go over the top of the tiles.
    What can one lay in that situation then?

    That's right. I like to keep the joints as a feature if I can.

    Yeah I know what you mean. I'm going for this sort of affair - haven't yet worked out my dog tooths, though I think on all visible, non-hideable joints I'm just going to chisel out the radii left by the cnc cut.

    I'm finalising plans for my wardrobe a t the moment, and am considering push latch fittings on the cupboards and drawers. Anyone got these? How reliable and hard wearing are they? I don't really like the sticky-out bits, to be honest. Maybe I should just cut out indents a-la Uncommon Projects.

    Ply is great, and cheap. Make sure you get some nice baltic birch - get a B/BB grade and you'll have one perfect face.

    If you're putting heavy things on a shelf tied into plasterboard, it's gonna be at risk of falling off no matter what you do. Either the plugs will come out or the plasterboard will break, won't it?

    Now... looking for nice kitchen tiles in the sales. Fired Earth look nice for starters - anywhere else I ought to nose around?

    Centrifugal fans all the way. Since I had mine fitted, my bathroom damp problem is fixed. Went from condensation dripping off the ceiling to nothing. Costs more, is worth it.

    Oh I missed this - yeah you might be right. I really like the galvanised brackets, think they kind of suit the plywood aesthetic, but appreciate others might not. I'll see what I can integrate into the design.
