The Kitchen Cabinet

This is another headache.  On and off, we have been discussing about the style for our kitchen cabinet and it always ends inconclusively.  Thank goodness that we have earlier agreed on the general deployment of colour scheme [black and white] and the modelling shaped counter space work areas. 

We also have decided on the kitchen sink and tap, kitchen hood and the island hob and the overall general placement of other kitchen stuffs.

The Kitchen layout:

Chiauw brought us back to Formwell at Sungei Kadut, hopefully, to finalise on the type of drawer finishes and handles.  She also wanted us to re-look into using 'Hanex' for our kitchen top rather than using the granite top.  The good thing about 'Hanex' is the workmanship that Formwell can manufacture.  It will curve the material in one straight line for kitchen top and back splash.  This will make cleaning easier and there will be no obvious joint lines should we opt for granite.

The smooth curve:

Hanex black kitchen top:

We would probably use the black 'Hanex' for the main kitchen top and its back splash.  To give it a contrast, all the drawers and cupboard doors will be glass on white wood.  This will give the shine and a sense of space in the kitchen.

For us to cut some costs, we will not be using the full blum kitchen system.  Uncle Chong, our joiner, will construct the wood works and incorporate Blum mechanical parts.  The advantage of using Blum mechanical parts is that it prevents slamming and also ensuring that drawers and cupboard doors are shut tightly.  Blum runners are also resilient and it is useful for big and wide drawers.
