The installation. It often starts with removing the existing kitchen. This then allows any plumbing, gas, electrical, plastering or other works to be carried out if needed. We also like to make sure the site will be ready to take delivery. We may have agreed to use a skip placed on site or on the road outside if suitable.
The best part for us now begins. The art of kitchen installation. Although it is not so straight forward for you for a little while. You will most likely be having various disruptions to your normal routines. You will be without your usual cooking comforts and food storage capabilities – you may be living on takeaways, meals out, or microwave food and salads.
Also the services (gas, electric, water) to your home will be periodically turned off in order for alterations to take place, maybe for several hours or so, but we will inform anyone who is home about this first. That said we will do our best to get everything back up and running as quick as we can.
Your kitchen furniture, components and appliances are then delivered to your home, to start being installed straight away.
If works by other trades are required, they need extra time for completion. These could be for example, plastering, tiling, flooring, lighting, decorating etc. As each project is unique, so is the time needed for each, and we always try to estimate as close as possible how long these things take.
You may like to tie in your kitchen project with a holiday. This means that instead of having to put up with the upheaval involved, you may be able to leave your home with the old kitchen in situ, and come back to a complete new transformation (that is if the overall project time is within a suitable length for your holiday).
