What's the Average Time It Takes to Remodel A Kitchen?

A common question you will be asked when thinking about a remodel of your kitchen is "How long does it take?" There are many things to consider when deciding the completion date for a home improvement job. And, of course, there is no one kitchen remodel that will be exactly the same. It is important to know the scope and timeframe of a home improvement project before you start your kitchen renovation journey.

  • What style of kitchen are you looking to remodel? And what style of kitchen do your dream of?
  • Do you plan on keeping your current kitchen layout or changing it? Think about countertops and prep areas.
  • Are your plumbing fixtures going to be able to withstand the elements? What about electrical upgrades and/or lighting? Make sure to upgrade your electrical system.

Custom kitchen cabinetry

Custom cabinets will help you create a new kitchen design and improve your functionality. In 10 working days, custom cabinets can be finished and the countertop installed within one week. If your new cabinets have been installed, we recommend that you schedule your countertop tiling after they are completed. Most accessories such as backsplash tiles, flooring, and other accessories can usually be installed within a few hours.

Refacing kitchen cabinets

Cabinet refacing may be an option if you are happy with your current kitchen layout but would like to have a totally new look. You can save both money and time by updating your existing cabinets. In addition, you will still receive new doors and drawers. The average time to complete cabinet refacing is about one week, if not sooner. Kitchens are smaller than 5 x 6 feet can be refaced in 3 to 5 business days.

  • You can plan your meals in advance as installations will occur and your kitchen will temporarily be unavailable.
  • Establish a kitchen outpost. The place you keep essential items in one location that is not disturbed. Consider items you use every day like your coffee maker, microwave, etc. You might even want to set up a grill outside if the weather permits.
