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Mr & Mrs H had an old, outdated kitchen which they desperately wanted rid of!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.
