Choosing an easy to clean kitchen

Hi all,

I'm totally confused about choosing the right kitchen cabinets and I need some help! Does anyone here own a Higham Furniture Kitchen? I received a quote from them and they're not exactly cheap. I need some reviews of the durability of their kitchens, are the cabinets easy to wipe clean (They have eggshell finish and I am worried greasy fingermarks will show up easily)? Does wiping them on a regular basis affect the paintwork? Whats the longest has anyone had their painted cabinets before having to repaint them? How do their cabinets fair in terms of denting and chipping?

I absolutely love the inframed cabinet style with the visible hinges, but it needs to be practical as well as beautiful.

Sorry for all the questions, I want to be absolutely sure before I commit. I hope someone can shed some light.

Thank you.

I can't comment on the brand you are looking at, but an easy to clean kitchen would have cupboards to the ceiling so you can't get dust and grease on the tops. Slab doors rather than in frame and no mouldings to act as dust catchers. No open shelves or racks with utensils and pans hanging off them. A vented extractor of some description is also essential.

Just had a painted inframe kitchen installed, we went for British standard Cupboards the cheaper branch of plain English. I dented the edge of a cupboard yesterday by putting a plate in too quickly and not carefully enough!! So yes they do dent if banged but I would still have again as they are so beautiful.
