Before an IKEA kitchen installation

  2. Our installer will carry out a pre installation visit to check your space against the proposed plan, and dry fit quote you were given. During this our installer will discuss the installation project timeline.
  3. When your kitchen delivery arrives, please check that all boxes and appliances have been delivered.
  4. Prepare your space. Clean everything out and take care of any work like patching, wall painting, redoing floors, etc. Set up a temporary kitchen. Place all packaging in the room where the kitchen will be.

If you have opted for the kitchen removal service, our installer will remove your kitchen on day 1 before the start of the installation.

  1. Live life while the pros do their work. Every IKEA kitchen installation comes with a 5-year workmanship guarantee, so you can feel confident installation meets the highest industry standards.
