We are on the final steps of the complete kitchen remodel. In this last blog, we’ll walk through appliance installation, wiring fixtures, and plumbing. We’ll finish with inspections which will round out all the steps for a kitchen remodel.
Appliance, Plumbing, and Fixtures
A plumber or a DIYer can do the appliance installation. You’ll need someone that has experience connecting the water supply to the refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, and faucet. An air gap must be installed for your dishwasher and countertop. Run a few tests to ensure installation is complete and there are no leaks. Contact your electrician to finish out the receptacle plates, fixtures, and ductwork. Electrical work can be an easy job for a homeowner. If you called in the professionals for initial wiring and plumbing work, its a good idea to have them come out for the final tasks.
It’s time to go through the checklist and ensure all the tasks are complete. If you worked with a general contractor, make sure you perform a final walk-through. Keep note of the things that still need attention. Carefully inspect every aspect of the project. If you feel confident and satisfied with the work, there is one final step – inspection.
Your general contractor would make arrangements for final inspection and permits. If this were a DIY project, you would need to contact inspectors yourself.
All your kitchen needs is a good cleaning. Once the cleaning is done, you’ll have a brand new kitchen to break in. Whether it was a grueling eight weeks or several months, you will celebrate your decision to remodel your kitchen.
