DIY kitchens project management - when to call a plumber and an electrician in your kitchen
When you'll need an electrician and plumber.

Step one

Plan and design your new kitchen layout clearly indicating where you’ll need powerpoints and plumbing for appliances.

Step two

Before you remove your existing kitchen including cabinetry and appliances, call in a qualified plumber and/or electrician to remove or temporarily disconnect any power and water.  Once this has been done you can start removing your kitchen.

Step three

An electrician will need to run wiring to your specified hot spots where powerpoints and appliances will be installed. This is also the time for a plumber to come down and move any piping to where your sink and dishwasher will be located.

Step four

So you’ve knocked down your kitchen, well now’s the time to install your brand new kitchen.

Step five

This is the final step – both your electrician and plumber will need to come back one last time to connect and finish off any last touches to your kitchen, i.e. dishwasher, sink, powerpoints, oven, cooktop etc.
