    Hi Vickie - we are architects, so we don't sell things. I don't remember the exact range but I do remember they are from Fulham Brass in west London.

What about plumbing?“Plumbing is another tricky one. We’ve not yet managed to discover whether copper or plastic pipes are better,” Rob says. “You could pay a sustainability consultant thousands and still not get a conclusive answer. “For welding,” he says, “we always use a solvent weld rather than pushing joints together with a rubber seal – the latter are more prone to leaks and typically not as long-lasting.” On the topic of leaks, a recent mishap in a newly installed kitchen has caused Rob to rethink how they install sink units. “Just weeks after putting in a kitchen,” he recalls, “the client knocked over a washing detergent container. The cabinet was permanently damaged before it was even a month old. It’s really common to open the sink cabinet and see damage of this sort, or from leaks. This prompted us to think: what can we do to protect and avoid these sorts of things and help longevity?” The upshot is that Rob’s team now install a liner tray into every sink cabinet. “If there’s a leak, you see it before the damage happens,” he says. This ensures the unit remains recyclable or resellable in the future.Another idea comes from Richard Andrews, who reduced the amount of items he needed to buy for his own kitchen by building his own taps from plumbing materials (see photo five, In what ways can I reuse and recycle?). It’s also a job a good plumber would be able to do relatively easily.

Which details should I choose?At this point, you need to start choosing everything from taps to cabinet doors; worktops to dishwasher. Try and pin down the associated elements, too, such as wall tiles and flooring.While it seems exhausting to have to choose between so many items, getting clarity beforehand will mean that you won’t be hassled at installation stage into making snap decisions that you may later regret.Keep referring back to your planned layout to make sure everything will fit. If you need to make amendments, this is the best point to do it so that by the time your kitchen is being installed you are absolutely sure of where everything will go.
