    Thanks Claymore.

    Yeah, I would love to keep this kitchen. Old units like these go for hundreds on Ebay. (This picture is one I found online that is the same as mine. I still can't upload photos to Landlordzone. )

    Westminster has given me an idea though. I am thinking about buying stainless steel sheets, and glueing on top of the existing worn worktop.

    Custom made s.steel worktops are quite expensive, and I wouldn't invest in them on top of aged units.

    Thanks, I'm sure they are. I'm just going to buy 0.8mm stainless steel sheet, cut to the right size and stick it down. I just looked up a supplier that cuts to size, here:

    The whole kitchen should be done for under £100.

    Looks good. I should bookmark this.

    You mean polished sheeting? (with some kind of profile edging?) I wouldn't think the grain-effect one is good for surfaces. (Also, I've got a hob in one flat with a panel of that stuff behind, and it's got tiny flecks of rust on it now; I guess maybe it's not 'pure' s.steel).

    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.

    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.
