At Planit Kitchens, we always send one of our production team members to do a final check measure of your space to ensure everything fits perfectly before we put your kitchen into production. It is a good idea to be present at this meeting to go over any final details and make sure you know exactly how your new kitchen will be fitted.

Installing your kitchen cabinets generally takes 1-2 days but can take up to 3-4 days for a very large, intricate kitchen. Laminate benchtops will be installed by the cabinetmaker who installs your kitchen. Stone and other solid bench tops will be installed by one of our trusted suppliers on another day.

At Planit Kitchens, we ensure that the stone slabs for your job are at our supplier the day your kitchen cabinets are installed. Our supplier will usually measure the day after your new kitchen cabinets are installed, and your benchtops will generally be installed 3-5 working days after they have been measured. However, due to excess workloads during busy seasons, sometimes this can take up to 10 working days.

Generally, no. The electrician and plumber will usually return to connect all appliances the day after your stone has been installed. You can stack items into cabinets that are not below stone benchtops, but for cabinets with stone benchtops above them, it is wise to wait until your stone is installed before placing items into the cabinets.

You will need to supply all your appliance specifications on check measure, and we recommend you organise to have all your appliances on site one week prior to your kitchen being installed. It is important that you check all your appliances when they arrive, to ensure they are what you ordered. Pay particular attention to the colour, and make sure the sink has the drainer on the correct side. This saves a lot of problems later on, discovering that appliances are not correct when tradies are attempting to install them.

Floating timber floors need to be laid after your kitchen is installed, as they can’t be laid under the cabinets. After your floors have been laid, you can either use timber beading to conceal the gap between the floor and the cabinets, or we can come back and install Planton kickboards for an additional cost after your flooring has been laid.
