    Replacing Chipboard with 25mm Plywood

    I have listened to advice and decided to replace chipboard floor with 25mm plywood. While in some ways more work, at least I can just rip the flooring up without chiselling the tiles off. Getting the plywood tomorrow. Can I ask a further question. How should the plywood sheets, 2440mm x 1220...

    Removing floor tiles

    I will be installing a new kitchen soon. I want to replace the existing floor tiles. How easy/difficult will this job be. The tiles are on moisture resistant chipboard. I will be laying 9mm or 12mm WBP before I tile the floor.

    The units I am buying are 560mm and the worktop I like, Bushboard Encore, is 650mm. When the doors, 20mm, are added the overhang would be 70mm. Is this too much and therefore I need to look at 600mm wide worktops ? Cheers
