That's very much standard practice. Who'd want to fuck about with flooring if you needed to do something with the plumbing or electricals behind the appliances?

I’m not sure I’d call it standard practice. And it’s more to do with the fact that you’d need to rip out the entire ground level kitchen and refit it, which would involve plumbing, counter tops, tiling, hobs etc. Even if you didn’t damage anything, it would still be more expensive than a new kitchen. On top of the cost of the floor. You can, however, ameliorate the issue by being careful.

So, it’s standard insofar that most people won’t budget for the cost and most contractors are lazy/dishonest


Update.... had to drill out and remove the flooring in front of the washing machine so we could get it out, some kicker board was also broken. My kitchen is totally old and crap and should have been replaced years ago.

However my wife can never make her mind up, we go from moving, to doing a big scheme on the house, to a small thing on the house. Last year I put my foot down and had all the bathrooms ripped out and done, this year time for the kitchen I think.

Flooring will go to the walls and the kitchen can be designed and built around that!

Hopefully, the washer can be repaired and it's going back in on boards so it can be removed again

We need all-new cookware as ours don't work on the induction hob.

I did not know you'd need special cook ware for those hobs. Fancy that.

Nope, won't turn on unless there's something on it.

I think that's the exact one we were looking at for this place! Wanna swap? :D

Pro cook is your friend for suitable pans, there's one at East Midlands outlet if you fancied a jaunt.

Yarr. For them to induct upon.

The pans I currently have (and am looking to get rid were bought specifically for induction hob. It's rather neat, really.)

If only there was someone you could get rid of them to.

Gas hobs are nice if you have them, or if you're redoing your whole kitchen, but electric works fine if that's what you have.

I know some people who have refused to buy a house because it had an electric oven. Weird.

An electric oven?

Fuck gas ovens, electric are far better. Electric hobs can suck a dick, though.

I can assure you they can't, as I found out to my own cost.

Induction hobs are best hobs, gas doesn't come close. Nothing else comes close to gas.

That's some sound advice there. I think...

We replaced the electric hob with a gas one (they call them 'cooktops' out here) when we redid the kitchen.

Fortunately there is a sex dungeon underfloor access under that side of the kitchen and a gas pipe very nearby so it was a very simple job.
