Maybe you should consider either black to contrast the white on white or white to carry on the theme.
Thanks Andy for the advice. I looked around and thought, 'well yes the espresso machine is black, and so is the body of the spice carosel, but, beautiful as it is, the whole thing needs a lift. Maybe I will wait until I get the floors done."
So today... and here comes another rant... I had two guys come to give me quotes on the flooring,for both kitchen and living areas.
First one brought so many samples that the half the living room floor was covered with them. He was polite, and cooperative; listened to me when I explained my budget considerations. (I think he has got the job.)
The second guy brought only one type of carpet sample... dreadully cheap and nasty and one lot of vinyl - shockingly expensive.
He really p....d me off. He said that prehaps they might be able to to a better price than he was quoting. Me, "Mate, I asked you for your best price...you don't get a second chance. Am not coming back next week and telling you that ABC flooring gave me this price, what can you do?"
That didn't seem to sink in. "Well just come down (1.5hrs drive away) and have a look around and we will see what we can do." ***&&^% My spouse has already been to the store and outlined both our budget and what we require and that certanly bore no resemblence to the samples presented today.
Honestly, don't these people understand English. And do they not realise that there is competition out there.
