The secret to a successful kitchen renovation is preparation, especially if you are swapping your current kitchen countertops for granite countertops. Imagining the end result is easy enough, but actually preparing your kitchen is where the real work lies. Homeowners often have questions about how to prepare their kitchen for the installation and what to expect during each step of the process.
You will find that while a large amount of the renovation preparation is the contractor’s or granite fabricator’s responsibility, there are a few things that you will need to do. Your involvement in the process will certainly make the installation go quicker. Here are a few preparation tips:
- Ensure that all of the cabinets are already properly and completely installed. You should also check to see that they are able to provide sufficient support to the weight of the granite slab.
- Make sure your counters are at the correct height for the countertops. Remember some tasks in the kitchen require standing and some sitting – make sure the final installed granite countertops will be at the ideal height.
- Ensure that your sink and faucet are on-site and available to your granite fabricator. This will help to create a template which accurately fits these items.
