A simple kitchen replacement replacing your kitchen on a like-for-like design or layout usually takes around a week to fit.

However, as most of our kitchens involve a new design, with changes to the electrics and plumbing, re-plastering and other preliminary work then you can add another week or so to this timescale.

Quartz, Granite and Corian-style worktops will then add several extra days to the overall timescale as these have to be manufactured to order and can only be measured up once the kitchen units are installed.

Other additional work will all add to the timescale such as structural work, new lighting, flooring, tiling etc. Some more complicated installations can take several weeks to install. Your designer will be able to give you an idea of timescales based on the amount of work required to create your new Mastercraft Kitchen.

Planning permission requirements vary based on your location and the extent of your kitchen renovation. Most local councils will require planning permission for extensions and building regulations approval for structural changes. Check with your local building department to determine the necessary permission for your project.

During the installation process, your kitchen may be partially or completely unusable, depending on the extent of the renovation. It’s best to make alternative arrangements for meal preparation, such as using a temporary kitchen set up in another room or relying on takeout meals.
