When you have established your renovation plan and budget, it is time to start consulting professionals. To create your perfect kitchen or bathroom you will need the services of a number of trades. Working with a great tradesperson will ensure your new space is fit to last, whilst saving you money and accelerating your timeline.
The tradespeople you may need are:
- Kitchen Installer: If you are not completely confident in demolishing your kitchen, a kitchen installer is the right trade for this job.
- Electrician: Prior to your demolition, an electrician is crucial to ensure any electrical outlets or lights are safe. Electricians will also cut appliance holes in your bench top and install your appliances, lighting, and electrical outlets. You do not want to expose yourself to the risks involved with DIY electrical work!
- Plumber: Also prior to your demolition, a plumber will guarantee that any gas or water outlets are safe. Cutting out spaces for the sink in your benchtop, and installing the sink, taps, gas appliances or dishwasher drainage, are all tasks that can be completed by a plumber too.
- Cabinetmaker: Without a cabinetmaker your beautiful new kitchen cabinetry won’t be installed.
- Stonemason: A stonemason will measure and install your stone benchtop if that is your chosen type of benchtop. They can also cut out holes for your sink and appliances.
- Tiler: From your splash back to your flooring, a tiler is important for tiling installation.
- Waterproofer: Waterproofing is an essential stage in your bathroom renovation. In the case of any future leaks, it is important to have a qualified waterproofer who can offer warranty on the job.
- Gyprocker/ Plasterer: If you need to remove tiles or treat existing water damage to your bathroom, a plasterer can re-sheet your bathroom or fix cornices.
- Electrician: Similar to a kitchen renovation, an electrician is necessary to ensure any outlets or lights are safe before demolition begins. They can also install all of your lights and electrical outlets.
- Plumber: Alike the electrician, a plumber can check for safety before demolition starts. They will ensure any gas or water outlets are safe, as well as install all of your plumbing fittings to your bathtub, toilet, taps, and shower.
- Cabinetmaker: A cabinet maker will install any cabinetry, such as vanities or hanging mirror cabinets, and can sort out any new doors, architraves, or any other structural changes you are making to your bathroom.
- Tiler: You will need a tiler to tile and grout your bathroom if you’re picking tiles for your new space.
- Glazier: A glazier is needed to measure and install your new shower screen and hanging mirrors.
