Cool! Yeah he rolled the short ones (above fridge and above microwave) into one "upper" for the 42" upgrade.

what's the plate rack - is that like the unit with slats to slide your plates into vertically?

The soft close might not slam, but do the regular ones slam much? I am coming from drawers that don't even stay on their tracks properly, never mind soft close..

and what is this 2 drawer combo unit you speak of.. heh.. Our vanity is 60" wide though

What do you mean credit for the drawers if you don't do soft close... are soft close standard for the 4 existing drawers?

Okay wait.. is it 335 for the drawers PLUS 491 for the soft close tracks!?!?!? omg.

Man, those soft close drawers are hideously expensive.. to get that on all of my pot drawers plus the bank of 4 drawers would come up to about 1500 bucks. That's ridiculous. I really don't understand how this cost can be so high - are they plated with gold!?

That vanity setup sounds good actually. I was so engrossed in our kitchen that we didn't even talk vanities. What I really want a price on is heated ceramic tile in the ensuite...

I found the standard drawers worked pretty good too. I am asking about heated floor in the ensuite and will let you know when they price it for me.

Nothing worse than a cold ceramic floor in the winter! I'll let you know too.

FYI, you can buy soft close attachments from IKEA or Lee Valley, possibly even Home Depot (look up Blumotion).

Would they attach to the existing drawer tracks or would you have to replace the tracks? wouldn't be hard to replace the tracks if they are the same size!!

HEATED FLOOR.. drooool. From talking to other people who have built i have heard everything from 1000 bucks to 4000 for an ensuite of average size. I would be willing to pay 1k but not 4k.

There are a few different kinds. Some clip to the tracks, so they might be proprietary to that brand of track. But others are just a little "button" that you screw somewhere onto the drawer frame so the drawer hits it when it closes. They should be fairly universal.

That's on my list of things to do "at some point".

Costco.ca also carries the heated mats to put under your tile.
Not in their stores it seems....has to be ordered online.

Yeah, I've seen those! They have them at home depot too. We considered putting them in our current house during our bathroom remodel. We would have to go with the builder if we wanted it though since we really do not want to rip up the tile and re-do it...

Hi Gang,

Thought you might enjoy one more Urbandaler in your group!

We moved into a SunnyBrae house this past December, in Notting Gate.

I hope I can help you guys out with some upgrade questions, etc.
