Kitchen fit outs

Payne Carpentry have extensive experience in many types of kitchen fit outs. To find out more contact us today.


Carpenters will install a selection of cabinets to the floor of the room allocated for the kitchen, specific cabinets will house kitchen appliances such as dish washers, washing machines, fridge freezers etc. A worktop will be placed on top of the floor cabinets, with provision made to receive a sink and draining board. Often wall cabinets will be fixed to some of the walls for food and accessory storage facilities.

Most kitchen cabinets are standard and regular sizes so planning the kitchen around such modular sizes is the best way of achieving a room that looks intended by design. Payne Carpentry Ltd are always happy to help our client achieve this at the earliest stages.  
Surveying the building works is crucial to ensure the intended cabinetry will work within physical enclosures. Checking floors and walls for plumb, level and alignment is a sensible safeguard prior to ordering cabinets.  
Prior to fixing the cabinets the carpenter will mark out the intended cabinet positions to ensure the design layout works. All mechanical and electrical requirements, drainage from sinks and washers, power to appliance points are checked to make sure they are in their relevant positions. Once this is established the cabinets can be installed. 
Most floor-based cabinets will be sited on adjustable feet so that once fitted, they can be perfectly aligned and then secured back to walls for stability prior to installing the worktops.  
Once the floor cabinets are secured, a plinth will be installed to cover the adjustable feet, leaving a neat finish between the cabinet and the floor. Plinths are usually removable for later access should it be required.  
Ordinarily the wall cabinets will be installed prior to installing the worktop surfaces, worktops are generally either 30mm or 40mm thick and knowledge of the thickness is important so that the underside of the wall cabinets can be installed at a height that works well with other wall finishes, such as ceramic tiles or glass splashbacks etc. This avoids the potential of cutting wall finishes and keeps a neat and tidy visual appearance when completed. 
Worktops are then installed to suit the design, there is a huge range of options for material choice and colour selection. It will normally be the carpenters' job to install any timber or laminated chipboard worktops only, and should other materials be used, such as marble, granite or glass, the company supplying these will normally install them.
