Anders ABSTRAKT splash guard





Materials: ABSTRAKT Glossy door, Saw, Glue, Silicone

Description: When remodeling my studio apartment I wanted to make the kitchen part integrate with the rest of the room. Since I used the ABSTRAKT doors on all cabinets and wardrobes in the apartment I figured I could put one horizontally on the wall over the countertop as a splash guard.

1. Cut the side of the door to make it fit over the counter top.
2. Glue it to the wall with PL400
3. Fill the crack between the splash guard and the countertop with silicone.
4. Done!

This was a really cheap alternative to tiles.

    Anders,

    The above nasty comment is just moronic.

    I love the classic modern look of your kitchen, the glossy Abstrakt fits the look perfectly.
    Beautiful!

      No, it’s not. Trina actually says something quite correct: The kitchen does have a classic modern look. It’s classic, since it’s been done for many decades, no matter the fashion trends of the time.

      On the other hand, Anonymous (you?) expresses dislike through an utterly unnecessary and nasty personal attack. Yes this qualifies as moronic. The comment says nothing useful about Anders kitchen, only shows the commenter’s immaturity and inability to express thoughts in an articulate and appropriate way.
