Now that the tiles have been laid, it’s time to let the professionals do their work. First up is the cabinet installation. That’s got to happen first before we can have the granite guys come in. The next step after granite would finally be appliance install. When you’re doing a project like this, the key is really the cabinet makers. Make sure you pick a good one! There are some companies out there that do both cabinetry and counter tops, so keep that in mind as you talk to your local professionals. Another piece of advice before you begin? Check out everyone’s contractor license number, and how much they’re insured for. We had a flub in the beginning that could have been really bad. Luckily everything ended up A.O.K. In California, you can easily look up information here: California Contractors State License Board.
