Preparations Before Installation
New kitchen cabinets may take anywhere between 1-2 weeks to be ready. Below is a quick list of things to think about prior to the arrival of the new cabinets:
1. Prior to receiving your new cabinets, be sure to make a quick list of items that you will be purchasing and placing into the kitchen. Examples are lighting fixtures, cabinet door handles, new microwave/vent, new stove, new dishwasher, paint for walls, and any other kitchen accessories that you will need installed into your new kitchen. This will facilitate and make the installation process quicker.
2. Before you receive your new cabinets, you will need to determine where the cabinets can be stored temporarily in your home.
3. Empty all existing cabinets prior to removal and make enough room for installers to work.
4. IMPORTANT: Be sure to keep children away from the kitchen working area, as there may be sharp tools and heavy materials that may pose to be dangerous.
5. An average kitchen installation will take about a week or less. You will not have access to your kitchen stove, sink, microwave, dishwasher, and other appliances during this time. Make sure to think of alternatives.
Other Things to Know About Installations
Your new kitchen may be up and running within several days. Countertop fabrication and installation varies depending on the countertop dimensions you chose. When getting a solid surface countertop, such as granite countertops, templating is performed only when the base cabinets are installed. It will take about 4-6 days to fabricate and then another day for installation.
Also, please keep in mind that a kitchen project will create a certain amount of dust in your home. You will need to wipe down kitchen cabinets, counter tops, and other furniture after the installation.
Enjoy and we look forward to bringing your dream kitchen to reality!
