😧 install new Dishwasher:
The current one is:
E: install new oven:
F: Changing the Benchtop:
We would like to know what is the best sequence to follow to achieve what we would like to do.
At the moment, the main priority is B, but still, we can follow the right logical order.
Any suggestion is highly appreciated.
The main reason is, we don't want to undo (affect) the job which has already been done
It sounds like you have some fantastic plans in the works and I can't wait to follow along.
The sink and cooktop will need to be installed into the new benchtop. You wouldn't want to damage that new benchtop by removing tiles above it, so I'd suggest that the tiles' removal needs to be done before the bench installation.
I would believe the best sequence would be to remove the benchtop and tiles first and have the new benchtop and splashback installed. Once the benchtop is in, you'll be able to install the stove and sink. The range hood, dishwasher and oven could be installed at any stage.
Hi @Sugar , these are great plans and informative pictures.
Having recently had a kitchen makeover myself, the order in which mine was conducted was as follows:
1. Upper cabinets and new range hood installed (as they lean on the bench tops to hoist up the upper cabinetry.)
2. Removal of cooktops & sink, then bench tops and backsplash.
My oven was an under bench oven. If yours is the same, then the oven and dishwasher can happen later. If you’re (re)considering a freestanding oven with stove, then the bench top will have to be cut to measure the size of the oven.
Ideally, your range hood and stove top are the same size.
Enjoy your renovation. Look forward to seeing your new kitchen.
