HI can you tell me vinyl wrapping is different to 2 pack isn't it ? If I chose 2 pack in classic white would it be very close in colour ? or would it be a cream.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Joanna Tovia added this to Choose the Right Hard Flooring for Your Open-Plan Living Area
Engineered timber floorboardsEngineered timber floorboards are a less expensive option than regular floorboards that can look just as beautiful, but only the top layer is timber. The remaining width is a filler known as substrate. Architect Christopher Megowan says engineered timber that uses American and European oaks are becoming popular, and have come a long way in recent years.“There used to be a stigma about veneers – they looked cheap – but those days are over; now the thicker veneers are quite good.”The timber top layer can be 2, 4 or 6mm thick. If it’s your own home, Megowan strongly advises going for the 6mm option. “The cost is not exponentially higher; it’s money well spent,” he says.The real benefit of a 6mm layer is that you can do three sandings, meaning your floors are going to look great for about 30 years. A 2mm layer can’t usually take any sanding at all. Unless you’re buying an investment property with the intention of doing it up cheaply and quickly flipping it, Megowan says a 6mm thickness is otherwise advisable. Engineered timber is more stable than hardwood, which expands and contracts with temperature and moisture levels, but only when the substrate is multi-layered ply or similar. If you buy engineered timber layered on solid pine, your floors will face the same challenges as with solid timber – they can crack, cup and gap.TIP: Although floating floorboards are available, Bagnato prefers floorboards that are glued and nailed to the floor. Floating floorboards sit on a rubber underlay and are installed simply by clicking the planks together – they can feel unnaturally bouncy to walk on.Engineered oak flooring in ‘Georgia’: Woodcut
Liz Durnan added this to Shady Business: How to Choose the Right White Paint
Is it right for the room?Think about where you are using white paint. All-white might suit one room in your home but not another. Bright, clean whites are a timeless and fresh choice for kitchens, and one bold hit of colour can easily be added in the simplest of ways – as in this kitchen with a red cast-iron pot, a spray of herbs, and a bowl of fruit.

Anne Ellard Design added this to Key Heights to Consider When Designing Your New Kitchen
Height of the oven and other appliancesHaving your oven raised off the floor by building it into a wall cabinet instead of going for the standard under-bench oven is a great way to eliminate excessive bending down in your kitchen. Your microwave or steam oven can also be built into the same cabinet for efficiency and a more streamlined look. The top appliance should be positioned with its centre at around eye level. A height of 1570mm from the floor is the average eye level, but consider the height of the main cooks in your kitchen to determine the most suitable height for you and your family. Note, it is recommended that the height from the floor to the top of the highest appliances is no more than about 1700mm. This will ensure you are not lifting hot food out of the oven at a dangerous height.
Anne Ellard Design added this to How to Plan a White Kitchen That's Anything but Boring
Another great way to add texture and depth to your white kitchen is to use doors and panels that have a routed profile as opposed to flat doors. The shadows cast by the routed profiles will add some depth and interest to the space while still maintaining a crisp look.
Anne Ellard Design added this to 10 Kitchen Colour Schemes That Will Stand the Test of Time
4. White on WhiteI know what you’re thinking … boring! But white on white kitchens, although admittedly not to everyone’s taste, are perhaps the most timeless of all kitchen colour schemes and the most popular, with very good reason. White is a very easy colour to live with, it’s easy on the eye, doesn’t demand attention, you won’t get tired of looking at it and, best of all, there is an endless choice of coloured accessories that you can team with white without them clashing. An all-white kitchen exudes an air of sophistication, simplicity and grace. It looks fresh and bright and never dated. You can easily add colour to an all-white kitchen, and change it often with the use of coloured accessories such as pendant lights, small appliances and even plants. Choose your shade of white carefully. Opt for shades that are on the cooler side (with a slight blue undertone) as opposed to whites that are too warm, as these can sometimes appear yellow depending on the light in your home.

7. Space between countersWhen designing a kitchen, it is recommended to leave a minimum of 1000mm of floorspace between your two benchtops. This will allow room for you to open drawers and cupboards, as well as stand in front of your dishwasher when it is fully opened. However, if you have the space, I would suggest you aim for a space of 1200mm so you can comfortably move around your open dishwasher, without fear of bumping your shins on the corners – OUCH!Get more expert advice from a kitchen designer in your areaTELL USWhat have we missed?

Eclectic Creative added this to Kitchen Styling Tricks Anyone Can Do
Add a colourful potChange up your pots on the stove and show off your favourite cooking prop. I love the idea of placing something on your stovetop, because it doesn’t take up any room on your bench. Interchange your items depending upon what colour or texture you are after and put everything else away in the cupboard. Again, less is certainly more in this case, so choose one piece for your stove and let it take centre stage.
Susan Redman added this to Your Post-Christmas Sort-Out Starts Here
Clean the cookerThis has to be my least favourite job and one I put off until the oven has reached ‘that’ point. Oven cleaning products don’t just smell toxic… they ARE toxic so I like to use a natural method to get my oven sparkling clean.Firstly, remove the oven racks and run them through the dishwasher if they’ll fit. Otherwise, put them into a large tub of very hot water and dishwashing detergent and let them soak overnight to soften up the baked-on residue. Scrub them down, rinse and dry.While the racks are soaking, make up a paste of half a cup of bicarbonate of soda and about three tablespoons of water. Spread the paste all over the interior surfaces of your oven and let it sit overnight. Wipe down the oven with a damp cloth and then spritz with some household vinegar. This will make the remaining bicarb foam up, which makes it easier to wipe down. Repeat the vinegar process at least once more, until your oven is sparkling clean.TIP: Buy a self-cleaning oven!
Rebecca Gross added this to Know Your Flooring: Hardwood
Width: the width of timber boards can range in size from approximately 60 millimetres to 150 millimetres.Finishes: an oil finish allows new timber floors to expand and contract evenly over time. This finish tends to bring out the natural colours and character of timber floors. Other coating systems include polyurethane, water-based finishes and shellac.
Ioanna Lennox Interiors added this to How to Get a Hamptons Kitchen That Won't Cost a Rockefeller Fortune
1. Let white cabinets reign supremeWhen we think of a Hamptons’ kitchen, we automatically think of large windows that allow plenty of sunlight to flood in, making white cabinetry or paintwork – also a feature – appear to shine brightly. The cabinets can be very expensive to make and install, but thankfully there are alternatives.GET THE LOOK FOR LESS: To add some Hamptons flair to your kitchen, try this value-for-money idea for cabinets: choose 2-pack polyurethane kitchen cabinets in a bright white satin or matt finish. White is light and reflective and, when paired with dark timber floors, creates an instant Hamptons look. Inexpensive flat-pack cabinets can be bought from any major furniture store or kitchen retailer, and sometimes you’ll also find them at larger hardware suppliers.
