Looks nice that mate.

Where is your extractor? I’m assuming that’s an electric hob on the island?

It’s a downdraught extractor in the hob, sucks it all down and there is a vent pipe under the floor that vents it outside.

Looks cool. Have to say, wherever i've lived with a breakfast bar stool in the kitchen, it has gone entirely unused Laughing out loud

Does anyone know if there is a cheaper alternative to these? I like them but feel there are probably a lot of similar ones for at least half the price.

I was looking at those firm living ones last week they are very fragile, I cant see them lasting too long. You may scoff but Aldi did some smoked reeded glass Highball's a bit ago that apparently everyone went mad for, my mrs bought some and I was like I'm not drinking out of Aldi glasses Laughing out loud but they are nice nt sure when they will do them again but its worth looking out for . they are very similar to the Firm living ones.

I think the Aldi wines are fantastic, gin and whisky too. Are Lidl better ? Such good value.

Try Nude. They do glassware/crystal to posh restaurants/hotels that want a quality and durable glass with nice design but not something that breaks the bank if a customer inevitably chips/breaks it.

I got these ones and they look great and are very durable

Moving into a rental to try a new area; open plan living room/diner is long and narrow - any suggestions for how best to arrange the room? Only existing furniture that will have to go in this room is two Modernica Fiberglass chairs, probably used as dining chairs, and a TV - will be buying a new dining table, sofa, shelving/storage etc

Finally started this week. More walls down next week and back of the house is being knocked out. Whole thing's planned to take around 8-9 weeks and then we're having work done in the garden.

Wife & daughter have moved out until the building work's finished so I'm living from a makeshift kitchen in the garage and dialling into meetings upstairs while guys downstairs are taking down walls with kango's Laughing out loud
