How To Install New Kitchen Units Replacement Laminate Flooring And Granite Worktops

New Kitchen Units – Replacement Laminate Flooring And Granite Worktops

Follow us as we show you how to install new kitchen units, replacement laminate flooring and granite worktops in our customers redeveloped kitchen. This job was a major undertaking which we knew would take us several weeks to complete. We had to coordinate the work with several other trades and there would inevitable be down time when we allowed these other tradesmen time to complete their tasks.

Mr & Mrs H had an old, outdated kitchen which they desperately wanted rid of! Because we had done work for them in the past – bedrooms, staircase renovation and under stairs drawer units, we at Real Room Designs were well known to them. They offered us the opportunity to come and design, manufacture and install their kitchen.

The aim was to change the room in which the kitchen was situated and knock through into the dining room to create an open plan kitchen/dining room. This had to be done with the support of the mandatory RSJ.

Once this was complete we had to take a step back whilst we let the plasterers and electricians worked their magic. Whilst they were on with their respective jobs Mr H had decided that along with a new kitchen he wanted replacement laminate flooring put down to match. This was a fairly straight forward job for us. We removed the old flooring and underlay so we could install the replacement laminate flooring. We then completed the job with new skirting boards.

The intricate work on the kitchen, however, came with its complications! This was due to some of the acute angles found within the kitchen as well as there being a curved breakfast bar. Once we got all of the base units into place it was time for the granite specialists to take over – The guys over a Warrington Granite & Marble are fantastic and were in and out creating the templates within one morning.

Once we had all the appliances in place we then had to wait for the doors. As these were made from solid oak they had to be specially manufactured for us. When they did arrive they looked fantastic.

Overall from start to finish this job took around 4-5 weeks including all the building work and kitchen installation. But as you can see from the pictures we think it’s definitely worth the time and effort. This job was complete in Lissa Oak cabinetry with solid Oak shaker style doors and black star granite.

This was a mighty task but we have clearly demonstrated how to install new kitchen units, replacement laminate flooring and granite worktops in a complex kitchen re-modelling exercise.

Mrs M Wants a Fully Fitted Kitchen


Mrs. M has used our services before and knows us to be very reliable and professional tradesmen. We have successfully completed two bedrooms for Mrs. M and so we are getting quite used to working at her house. This time she fancied having a new kitchen done.
She contacted Derek about 8 weeks before Christmas regarding her dream kitchen. Derek went down to Manchester to discuss the project in full and then presented Mrs. M with a quote for the work that needed to be done. It was important to settle on the right design, but at an affordable price, within her budget. The choice of cabinetry was made and the worktop was selected. We were then able to settle on a price for the overall project. Derek and Mrs M then set a date to squeeze her in just before Xmas so she was all ready for the festive period, where she could show off her very bright and modern kitchen.


The Work Begins On The Affordable Kitchen


Firstly, there was an existing kitchen that needed to be removed. This was completed just before lunchtime, which gave us time to get the new tiles down on the floor. This would be the beginning of the new kitchen.


The next day it was time for the base kitchen units to be fitted. This would be done by starting at one end and working our way around the kitchen leaving the correct space for the appliances. These would be fitted later on. The base units were all fitted level and secure to the wall so there was no movement. After all the base units were fitted, it was then time for the wall units to be fixed. This followed the same process as the base units but they would be fixed to the walls using wall brackets.


The Finishing Touches To the Fitted Kitchen Units


Mrs. M wanted a white granite worktop to give her new kitchen that modern look. This requires the granite suppliers to come out and take templates, then the granite worktop would be ready 3 days later. We then installed the cooker, washing machine, extractor and dishwasher securely in the correct places.
It was then time for the Granite company to come and fit the worktops. All that was then left for Real Room Designs to do was for us to fit the sink and taps. Fitting this is done using waterproof silicone to stop any leeks. After taps were in place we had to tile the rest of the kitchen above the worktop to give it that perfect finish!
Another happy customer in Mrs. M as she was ready to have a few guests round over the Christmas period. She was safe in the knowledge that a fully fitted kitchen at an affordable price was now available and functioning for her.
