Tip 1: Temporary benchtop
Once the cabinets have been installed, a template for the benchtop is made. This is to ensure that everything in your kitchen fits precisely. Fabricating the finished benchtop takes time so there is often a 3 to 14 days wait. This can be frustrating, especially with so much work being done and still no usable kitchen.
However, there’s a temporary workaround. Ask your builder to install a temporary MDF benchtop with the sink and hobs hooked up. This can feel like a real treat after 2 to 6 weeks of waiting time for the cabinetry to be installed.
