Not everyone has the means to hire a contractor to fit a new kitchen. If you can, installing a kitchen yourself is a great alternative to hiring a professional contractor and architect, etc. You can design and install a kitchen without professional help for the most part. Of course, it may take some time and patience, but it is possible to achieve a stunning result on a budget. Here are our top DIY tips for installing a kitchen yourself:
- Get your measurements right!
If you’re installing a kitchen yourself, you need to grab the measuring tape and make sure that you don’t make any mistakes. Getting the right measurements will help ensure the installation process goes as smoothly as possible. Of course, you can always alter the size of cabinet doors and worktops later if they are oversized. However, if you cut or order a smaller size of something you need, it’s very difficult to solve the issue without having to go out and buy replacement material. So, avoid the hassle later and get your measurements right.
- Use CT1 sealant to fit kitchen worktops
Adding new kitchen worktops is a great way to spruce up any kitchen. The good news is that fitting new kitchen worktops yourself is made easy when you use CT1. CT1 is a revolutionary construction sealant and adhesive that is 360% stronger than a traditional hybrid polymer. You can use CT1 to bond and fit kitchen worktops securely without any odour or the need for additional fixings. CT1 is the ultimate solution for fitting new kitchen worktops and it’s ideal for use in a kitchen environment because it is ISEGA certified, meaning it conforms to food preparation standards.
- Choose the right design plan
When installing a kitchen, you need to think carefully about the design. Keep simple tactics in mind such as having the sink facing out of the window and making sure there is enough counter space, as well as room for all of your appliances. Your kitchen design will determine where everything goes, and it is definitely something you need to take your time with.
- Use CT1 to install your new sink
If you’re fitting a new sink or replacing an old one, you’ll be happy to know that CT1 (and its younger brother BT1) are perfect for sink installations. Both CT1 and BT1 are made with TRIBRID® Technology, which helps to repel bacteria, mould and fungus. CT1’s intense strength is ideal for sealing around a kitchen sink to help prevent leaks in the future. It works well in both wet and dry conditions and even underwater. It’s often used for boating maintenance and emergency repairs at sea, so you can have peace of mind knowing you chose the best possible sealant to install your new sink!
Whether you want to install an entire new kitchen or just parts of one, CT1 sealant and adhesive is the ultimate solution for sealing and bonding.
CT1 is now available at Wickes Stores nationwide!
