Helpful tips for kitchen installation

Updated: Aug 19, 2022

When you are planning for kitchen installation, you have to do everything according to plan. This will ensure that everything goes smoothly. You also have to make sure that the daily routine at home is not disturbed, and that you are able to feed your kids and yourself on time, even if the existing kitchen is undergoing renovation or kitchen installation. Listed below are helpful tips for kitchen installation:

Empty your kitchen and be prepared

The first step to take is to prepare your kitchen for installation. Empty out all the cabinets and remove things from the shelves and countertops. A good idea will be to store all the cutlery and crockery in storage boxes and shift them to an empty room. Also, move electronics like a toaster or blender to a safe place. You will need to shift all the kitchen utensils and equipment as well. Place the things on a broad table in another room, like the dining room, so that you have all the free space in the kitchen.

Remove any pictures and wall hangings or art from adjoining rooms

Once you have emptied out the kitchen, the next thing is to make sure there is nothing delicate or sensitive in the adjoining rooms, especially on the other side of the walls. Remove any pictures, photos, art, or mirrors from the walls of adjoining rooms. This will make sure they don’t rattle or bounce off the walls when you are demolishing.

Set up a temporary kitchen at home

During the time of the kitchen installation, you and your family will obviously need to stay in the house. If the kitchen is not functional, a good idea will be to set up a temporary kitchen at home. You can do it in the garage or even in the covered area of the backyard. Since the place will not be a proper kitchen, just keep it simple and straightforward to use.

Protect other rooms from debris and dust

As the kitchen remodeling, renovation, or installation process starts, you will need to make sure that other parts and rooms of the house are kept free from dust and debris. You can do this by closing off the renovation area around the kitchen with plastic and tape. A good idea will be to protect your doors as well with plastic door shields with zippers. Most professional contractors will do that for you.

Prepare the room below the kitchen as well

During the installation, you won’t just have to protect rooms around the kitchen area, but you will also need to consider and secure any rooms above or below the kitchen area. This will be particularly true if you will be ripping down the existing floor to add a new one.
