How To Get Ahead & Install A New Kitchen In 2020
As kitchen suppliers and fitters in Auckland start into their kitchen design and installation projects for 2020 there tends to be a back log for residential customers, along with shop fittings for commercial fit outs of cabinets and even the smaller laundry installations being affected.
The best way to ensure that your project will stay on track, is to stay in touch with company that is completing the work for you.
Regularly sending emails, fortnightly of monthly for updates on progress and phone calls is key. Having a reason to call will ensure that you are front of mind, so that the company knows to reach out an inform you on any small delays that may be in the works.
Old kitchen renovations will mean that the old kitchen will need to be removed in advance by at least 24 to 48 hours, leaving a clear room for the cabinets to be installed and the power and plumbing to be disconnected for safety.
Once the cabinets are installed with a new kitchen design for 2020, the bench tops for the kitchen will need to be templated so that they can be installed in approx. 10 business days after the cabinets are fitted.
If you are changing the flooring, then this can happen directly after the cabinets go in. The kitchen company will need to come back to install the toe kicks once this is complete.
You will need to organize the plumber and electrician to come in before the kitchen is installed and after the old kitchen is removed. They will also need to come back after the cabinets are installed so they can connect the plumbing for the sinks, washing and laundry and also the electrics for the hobs, cooker and lighting etc.
If you have a kitchen in an apartment and are situated above the ground floor, you will need to plan ahead and notify all parties as this may mean that alternative access to the kitchen is needed or extra work needs to be completed in the kitchen to secure the safety and reliability of the work ahead.
The best kitchen reno's in Auckland happen when communication is open and often. That way, there are no surprises for either party.
A complete kitchen refurbishment can be a large project to take on and there can be many moving parts, so it’s best to get a company to take this all on for you or be very organised yourself and plan well in advance.
