Now I know why people hire in experts - for therapy and kitchens!
A friend has just had an abomination of a kitchen fitted by so called "experts" As for therapists ? They trade on people's desperation and ignorance to make plies of cash if they are private, or of they are NHS, are only there to provide themselves with jobs.
In that case, I'll stick to drinking beer and building my own kitchen. I'm closing in on finishing the thing anyway. Floor tiling nearly finished, then comes woodwork - skirting boards etc. Then final electrics and fitting toys, sinks, stoves etc.
I'm afraid I can't get emotional or interested in kitchens in any way, beer is moderately interesting, although I rarely drink it. I find DIY on the whole a real pain, I wish sometimes that I could make the effort, but these days it's not possible.
