    Depends what grade it is.

    Of course the flecks maybe oil or food.
    There is always scope for misinterpretation.

    If my posts can be interpreted in two ways, one that makes you feel angry and one that doesn't, I meant the latter.

    Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new.


      The flecks are rust.


        Oh for goodness sake replace, What is inside the cupboard door is what what worries me.

        Freedom at the point of zero............


          If your money is sufficient for a renovation, then I suggest that

          you change everything. If you do not have the budget for it though,

          you can list down all that needs repairing in your kitchen. I agree

          with JKO as well. Why not have it painted with another color so

          that it will look better? Keeping the design simple will make it

          elegant at the same time.


            If you can let it then I would let it as long as you are not having to take in a bad tenant.


              I kinda like the retro look now

              If you wait long enough they will become genuine antiques!

              Modern budget kitchens leave me cold.

              The question is are the units still sturdy and can they be kept clean. If tenants are happy then just do the minimum to keep it reasonable.

              We moved a 70's schrieber kitchen about 20 years ago from one room to another. (This really grated the workman at the time as he thought we should have got new) New worktops and tiles and it looked great. We moved out but the original units are still going strongish. If we had replaced it with new units at the time it would now be twice as knackered as the current ones.
              All posts in good faith, but do not rely on them
