I like this kitchen because it is uncomplicated and looks very workable. The shelves in the pantry are a great idea, and the comment about split sliding shelves - brilliant! Also notice the microwave in the pantry, great place for it and will use that idea with my pantry

So nice to see a reasonably-priced kitchen featured. It looks beautiful. I like that the floor to ceiling cupboards are only on 1 wall. I've done that in my last 2 kitchens and it gives such an open feel. Re the comment from HU about location of microwave - all depends how much you use it!

The classic U kitchen. It works so well. It's gone out of fashion but it should come back! I see so many 'fashionable 'kitchen designs based on islands and galleys and yet the U-shape would be so much better in terms of layout, bench space and storage in many cases. Melissa
