Are you in the process of getting new kitchen countertops in your home? If so, there are a few steps you can take to promote a safe, efficient, and successful installation day. To help guide you, here’s how you can prepare for your kitchen countertops installation.

Top Benefits of Kitchen Remodeling
  • Available to Installation Techs– First and foremost, it’s important to make yourself available to the installation techs while they are installing your kitchen countertops. This allows them to ask you questions in case they need something moved and can consult with you if there are any issues that arise.
  • Clean Out Base Cabinets – Your base cabinets (including drawers) should be cleaned out to ensure that dust and debris doesn’t cover and dirty your belongings.
  • Open Windows for Ventilation – Consider opening windows in your kitchen right before work begins to promote ventilation. Countertop installation involves fumes and debris, so opening a couple windows allows these fumes to escape without lingering in your home.
  • Clear a Path – It’s important to clear a path to your kitchen for the installation technicians. This includes moving furniture or items that would otherwise be in the way while the technicians are bringing in your countertop slab. Additionally, in the winter months, consider clearing the driveway and walkway of snow & ice to prevent falling.
