    They are 'Sequoia light oak beige' porcelain wood effect tiles with textured wood grain effect. Look convincingly real.

    Is the floor and room not cold without having underfloor heating?

    Really like the look of polished porcelain for an open plan kitchen dining room. Already has concrete floor and retrofitting looks too expensive.

    Spoke to the plumber that I use who is a right laugh and asked him the same sort of question about underfloor heating for a massive kitchen/diner and hallway. He sucked his teeth for a bit and said I rekon it will be about £6k fitted or I can save us both the bother and I'll buy you a pair of slippers :D

    That was similar to the quote my builder gave me for my extension 34m2. Honestly, with decent insulation under the floor I dont notice the floor being cold and I walk around bare foot.

    The island is basically 2 x 600mm Pan draws with a 250mm overhang with the worktop.

    There's around 3ft distance on 3 sides and 3.5ft on the Fridge freezer side. More than enough space to be honest.

    You'll be fine with that.

    When designing, most places say 1000mm with the caveat that 900mm is no issue anyhow.

    Good luck!
