Understanding the correct order of the kitchen fitting process is important. The different stages of the installation need to take place in a certain order. If both you and your fitter are working to the same schedule from the offset then the project should get finished more quickly and issues should be kept to a minimum.
All kitchen fitters do things a little differently, but the order of work will be more of less the same. This general guide will help you understand what is involved and what to expect from each stage.
Prior to arrival:
Make sure that you have emptied out all your units and drawers before the installer arrives and make sure that you have thought through how you will manage without your kitchen services. In the case of a refurbishment, you will be without hob, oven and sink for a few days.
It is difficult to provide timings as each kitchen is unique and the time taken will vary depending on room size, materials used, number of fitters and complexity of the job. However, estimate 5 working days as a sensible guideline for a complete kitchen installation for an average sized kitchen.
