We seem to have bought a house. Has anyone had their kitchen done in London recently? We need to get quotes for a kitchen/conservatory type effort v v soon.

Ooh, house! Where is it? Did you buy it by accident? :-)

It's in east Croydon (Addiscombe?) It's not far from the place we're in just now. We had an offer accepted on it yesterday. So, not strictly bought yet... gotta love that English system...

We had our kitchen done by Moben a few years back and I'd recommend them. They are pricey but they do everything for you, which is so much less bother than trying to coordinate plumbers/builders/tilers on your own. We did that in the bathroom and it was an ENORMOUS pain and we had no loo for a week. So yes, I recommend Moben.

Also - you've bought a house! How exciting. Where is it?

Ooh, nice kitchens!

We haven't really bought it yet, but had an offer accepted, so no doubt we will be moved in by about July... I'm always amazed at how long these things take. In the meantime we're starting doing everything at the same time because I know that this will drag on for ages and then just suddenly we'll be exchanging contracts. The house is in east Croydon, about 10 minutes down the road from where we are now. My main thing that I was sold on was the garden* - it's massive - but the kitchen is tiny so we're planning on doing like all the neighbours and sticking a onservatory on the back.

*And when I say the garden, I partly mean the fact that the neighbour's cat came wandering through the garden and I thought how nice it would be to have cats around again.
