New Worktops and Sink

The customer had recently moved into their property and wanted a dishwaher in the kitchen. This meant moving the sink and plumbing and therefore replacing the worktops and upstands.

The 1st step was to disconnect and remove the sink and taps.

Then cover the contents of the units to stop dust getting all over them, followed by removal of the worktops and upstands.

Next was to remove the old plumbing and run new pipework into the corner unit where the sink would be relocated. I always install isolation valves on all services as this make future maintenance much easier.

Then the old sink base unit was removed and two end panels installed where the integrated dishwasher was to be fitted.

Next was to cut the worktops to size, scribe them to fit the walls and then carefully mark out the position of the joints to be mitred.

The mitres were then cut and the worktops test fitted. The next step was to mark out the position of the sink.

The hole for the sink was then cut out, the worktops were the bolted and biscuit jointed together. The sink and taps were fitted and plumbed in and finally the upstands were mitered and installed.

The next step was to install the integrated dishwasher.

The final step was to install the furniture door to the dishwaher. The customer decided to opt for a handle either side to make it easier to open.
