Why pay for your kitchen to be designed. www.solidwoodkitchen.co.uk/kitchen-design.php will design your kitchen for free. I got quoted £500 from a specialist kitchen design company from London then I searched the internet. I searched kitchen design and was suddenly hit by twenty companies that were all willing to design my kitchen for free. I had three different companies come out and gave me a free design and all three left me with the plan. Don’t bother paying for a kitchen to be designed just get on the net and get it for free. Even B+Q and Wickes are willing to design your kitchen for free.
I agree, this was a very prominent plot device in the Metroid series. I can see why you brought it up.
