    Hi All

    We are having a wall knocked out between the kitchen and diner to make a larger more open space room and will be replacing the kitchen entirely once the work has been done by the builder.

    When it comes to having the kitchen fitted would you advise we get the entire floor tiled before we have the kitchen fitted and have the units on top of the tiles or have the kitchen fitted and then tile the floor under the units by a certain amount?

    I know if we ever wanted to change the tiles once the kitchen is fitted we would have a problem but just wanted to check and see whats the best way of going about it.

    cheers

    get the kitchen fitted, leave the plinths off. Tile up to the legs of the plinths then fit the plinths on top of the tiles.

    I sell tiles for a living and often hear the idea that 'if we change the kitchen we wouldn't need to change the tiles' but the truth is, you would anyway! you'd likely change the colour/style etc and the tiles aren't that expensive in relation to a new kitchen.
