Kitchen Progress - Kitchen Units - Day Three of installation


The doors have been fitted to most of the units.

Units have been leveled, mechanisms tested and final checks have been done in preparation for the arrival of the Quartz worktop next week!!

Metal brackets have been added to the back of the island units.

This is to create more support for the worktop because we are having an overhang where there is no units underneath to support the worktop.

We were advised by our quartz supplier to add these as a precaution because we have a weak point and the quartz could potentially crack.

There is only 3-4cm of quartz between the hob cut out and the edge of the back of the unit, therefore the overhang needed more support.

The electricians were back in all day on Saturday, they have connected most of the appliances and the safety switches are easily accessible within one of the empty units - as below.

Our builder has re-plastered the wall and re-painted after the light switches had to be re-positioned due to being too high.

The left hand side wall has been painted.

We choose a very soft light grey which looks lovely, it works perfectly with the white units.

Wall Paint Colour:
Crown 'Soft Steel' for Kitchens & Bathrooms

Looking forward to the worktop being delivered... We are nearly finished!!
