Order of Kitchen Remodel

Posted by uftvnewsgal (My Page) on

Hi there! I have searched this topic, but can not find the answer to my specific question.

We are not demo-ing the kitchen, but more of a small redo. The floors have already been installed. So, I plan to do the following things: Paint existing cabinets, have granite and new sink installed, install subway tile backsplash. I also plan to replace appliances, but they are the same size as existing ones.

I can not figure out which order to do these. Can you offer some advice? Thanks!!

Paint the existing cabinets
Have the range at least in place for the templating of the countertops.

Install the backsplash.

I agree with palimpsest, except with having the range in place at template. It's just in the way. You know the dimensions.

RE: Order of Kitchen Remodel

I would have the range there for templating - yes, you might know the dimensions, but having the real deal on site is important. You never know. I raised this issue with my template guy and he told me that if I could have the range there, it's always better.

It was important for me because I was changing from a slide in electric range to a slide in induction range - back and sides were different. Better to be safe than sorry, IMHO.

Some fabricators will insist the range and DW are on site. Mine moved the range into the place and templated.
