One of the greatest ways to prepare for any renovation is to do it ahead of time. Preparing for a kitchen installation is no exception to this rule. By following a few simple ideas and tips, you will be prepared for the installation of your beautiful new kitchen. The time that you spend upfront in preparation of your kitchen project will pay off time and time again throughout the entire installation process.
Start with an Empty Kitchen
The first thing that you need to do in order to prepare for your kitchen installation is to make certain that the space has been physically prepared. Completely empty out the cabinets and get as much out of the room as possible. Box up anything you are not going to be using, tape the boxes shut and label them accordingly.
If there is anything in your kitchen that is too heavy to move on your own, check with your IKEA delivery service team to find out if they will be able to take care of it for you. It is a good idea to have a clear path to the heavy object to make it more accessible so it can be moved easily. For instance, if you need your kitchen table moved to a different room, make sure there is a clear path to that room.
Clear the Walls
Take down any mirrors, art and pictures from the adjoining rooms. These things can rattle or bounce off the wall during the installation. Therefore, it is a good idea to remove everything from the other side of your kitchen walls.
Check for Parts
Once your new kitchen arrives, you will want to double-check the packaging to make sure you have received all of the parts. You can do this easily by checking the package contents against your order list. Do not dismantle your old kitchen until you are sure that you have all of your new appliances and everything you are going to need for the installation.
All of these items should be kept indoors at normal levels for temperature and humidity. You may also want to arrange your new cabinets in the order that you want them to be installed. You can use your IKEA home planner drawing and shopping list to help you accomplish this task. Finally, you will need to make sure that the gas, electricity and water have all be shut off before the kitchen installation begins. To know more about Kitchen Installation, visit Createcomforts.com.
