What to Expect During a Complete Kitchen Remodeling Project

When an Auckland home renovation that focuses on the kitchen is scheduled, homeowners will have to deal with some temporary inconvenience. Depending on the extent of the project, they may barely be able to use the kitchen at all during this time, even when the remodeling workers are not on site.


The home renovation auckland contractors will separate the kitchen from the rest of the home as well as they can. This may involve hanging up plastic sheets over entryways and window-like areas looking from the kitchen into a family room or living room. This helps protect the rest of the home from dust generated during the project, as well as reducing some odors from paint, adhesive and other materials. They may need to place plastic, paper or another protective material on the floor. That’s sometimes necessary if the floor is being replaced and household residents still need to get into the kitchen.

During a complete remodeling project, the workers will likely remove the countertops, cabinets and drawers, plumbing fixtures and lighting fixtures. Sometimes only the cabinet doors will be replaced, and other times the front of the cabinets and drawers will be refinished and stained or painted. A sash window over the sink may be replaced with a garden window. An Auckland kitchen get a free renovation plan also may involve the workers removing the appliances to replace them with new ones.
