Preparing for your New Cabinets & Countertops

Here are some additional points to consider in preparation for building a kitchen:

  • The area where your cabinets are going should be free of existing cabinetry and any/all appliances should be out of the kitchen area.
  • All plumbing should be disconnected, but if you happen to have existing waterlines coming up through the floor, they should be capped at 6-8” above floor level.
  • Even though your walls should have their final coat of paint, some touch-up might be required after your cabinets and countertops are installed.
  • We recommend that flooring should be at the sub-floor stage and only finished flooring should be completed once the cabinets are installed. An installer will then come back to finish the toe-kick.
  • Any electrical changes and/or additions should be discussed with a professional electrician and a member of the design team.
  • Discuss with the designer access to your home for delivery and installation personnel.
  • Upon delivery the cabinets should be placed near the installation area.
  • The installer prefers to work without interruption & should be able to set up tools nearby.
  • The installer should be able to reach you to discuss placement of handles, doorknobs and other issues that may arise.
  • Countertop installation depends on the type purchased, so there might be a time lapse for scheduling the final measure, the manufacturing and the installation of your kitchen.
  • All timelines should be discussed with your designer and countertop personnel.
