kitchen


Following on from my ceramic hob disaster, I have started to get some thoughts together for the new kitchen.
Its fairly small, with doors at either end so a bit limited for what goes where.
I am a bit confused as to the order of jobs.
I assume I remove all that I can from the kitchen but leave the cooker and sink in place until the new ones are ready to replace them
If that's so, can anyone give a newbie DIYer some tips
Thank you all in advance.

I did a small kitchen, about 11ft long by 7ft wide, with doorways at either end. I left the cooker in place until I was ready to install the new units that hold a double oven and ceramic hob. We used a microwave for the few days that we were without the oven. It was August and a put a gazebo up outside the back door and stood all the old kitchen units under that, including the sink unit which had a bucket under to catch the waste water. We filled the sink with a bucket of hot water for washing up. After removing all the units I decorated and laid sheet vinyl on the floor. I put the new sink unit in first and sorted the plumbing out for that so we could stop using the old sink outdoors. The fridge freezer and microwave stood in the dining room until they could be put back in the kitchen. I tiled the walls last. I estimated it would take me a fortnight then I would have a fortnight's holiday to recuperate, but it took me 5 weeks! That was mainly because I did it all myself, the units were flat-pack and they took longer than I estimated to assemble, and I worked carefully to get it right. I wouldn't like to tackle it in winter.

Thanks so much for that advice. I had no idea how long it would take, and of the problems that come with it.

It took several days at the end just clearing away all the rubbish. There was loads of cardboard and polystyrene packing that came with the new units, oven and hob, then the old cooker and the old base units and wall units. Even with the rear seats removed from my Renault Scenic it still took a lot of trips to the council rubbish centre.
