Our 5 steps
– The ideal material
– The preparation of places
– The cuts
– Worktop fixation
– The finishes
1. The ideal material
To put your work plan you will need:
A spirit level
A ruler and a square
A cut-out worktop with adequate dimensions
Drill and drill
2. Preparing the premises
Before starting the work, we check that the kitchen is ready to accommodate the worktop in the best conditions.
Cut the connections to the different networks (water, gas, electricity) in your kitchen.
Check with a spirit level that the reception area – or the furniture on which the plan will come to rest, are straight and in good condition.
Measure each element that will come to integrate the future plan: hotplates, sink or others. If your worktop will be cleared of any accessory you can simply check the installation measurements (width, length and depth of the space) to readjust the plan if necessary.
Depending on the nature of your kitchen and cooking elements, you may need to make additional cuts. Be careful though, if the kitchen is arranged in a singular way (many angles or curved space) it is better that you bring a professional to help you.For a more ordinary installation, here is the procedure to follow:
Install the plane on stable trestles, and adjust its dimensions using a jigsaw with inverted blade, making sure to draw the pencil cut beforehand.
Do the same for kitchen elements to integrate by plotting the measurements on the board. Then drill several holes (with a drill and a wood drill) into your drawing to insert the saw before cutting.
Coarse your cuts with sandpaper for a cleaner result before installing your worktop in its future place.
4. Fixing the worktop
You must now fix this freshly cut surface on the furniture to obtain a perfectly equipped kitchen!
Lay the work surface gently on the furniture, then use the clamp to hold it in a static position.
Then screw the two parts – top of furniture and worktop, from below with through screws.
Repeat every 50 cm or so to ensure a good solidity.
Do not hesitate to leave your clamp in place for one hour to maintain a certain stability.
We pamper his work for a flawless result.
Dust the assembly with a vacuum cleaner to remove any remaining wood chips and a cloth to remove small residues.
Once everything is clean, apply a silicone seal on the part next to the wall.
Depending on the type of worktop chosen, do not hesitate to feed it and protect it with oils and varnish.A quick operation that will allow you to enjoy your masterpiece for as long as possible!
