Getting a new kitchen countertop is an exciting step in making your kitchen pop. Once installed, it will be a place where people gather almost instantly. But before it can find a place in your home, it needs to undergo the meticulous installation process. Here are some precautionary measures you should consider before installation.
First and foremost, you will want to ensure that the old countertop is clear before the professional installers arrive. As both a courtesy to them and a time saver, be sure that the workers arrive ready to work and not delay the process. Unplug any and all electronics as well.
When it comes to the floor, be sure that there is a tarp or any kind of covering on the floor. The process of installation may involve heavy saw dust flying through the air. In addition, you also want to consider the safety of the workers and avoid any sort of slippage.
While your kitchen is being occupied by the professional installers, you are going to want to build a temporary kitchen space, or target an area in the kitchen away from the construction for you to prepare your meals, wash the dishes, etc. Maybe it’s your laundry room, dining room or mudroom that acts as your makeshift kitchen area as you wait the day or two it might take to install your countertop.
Follow these simple procedures and your countertop installation will be a smooth and steady process.
