Kitchen renovations are one of the more exciting projects that property owners look forward to tackling. Whether it’s upgrading the kitchen to completely revamping its look, the results are worth what is arguably the least pleasant part of the process: construction. Depending on the scope of work, a kitchen remodel takes anywhere from a few weeks to months to complete.
When you are ready to take on a new kitchen remodeling project, there are a few ways to determine how long the job will take. As a general rule, the more appliances and wiring that need installation, the lengthier your project will be. It’s the hardware and construction that take up the chunk of the work instead of the other segments of the project like demolition and finishing.
Phase 1: Pre-construction
The pre-construction phase is when you’re setting a blueprint for the scope of work. In addition to the materials and design you want to use, choosing the right contractor is part of the process. During this phase, you establish the cost of the project and sign a contract before work begins.
Your contract should include an estimate of how long it will take to complete the work, materials, pricing, and agreements with the contractor.
Phase 2: Demolition
The demolition phase is the quickest part of the kitchen remodeling process. At Kitchen & Bath Factory, we safely remove your cabinets, appliances, walls, and other parts of your kitchen. Our meticulous approach ensures that any rubble or debris doesn’t affect the rest of your space.
Phase 3: Installation
The installation phase is when the kitchen’s main components and elements start coming together. During this phase, your contractor installs the new sink, cabinets, drawers, wiring, pipes, and other parts of your kitchen. If you have a big kitchen or a complex concept, this process takes the most time and can last anywhere from a few days to weeks.
Phase 4: Finishing
After installing the main parts of your new kitchen, your contractor adds the finishing touches, such as touching up paint, molds, or adjusting cabinets. The finishing phase only takes a few days or a week at most.
If you have a completely new property, installing a new kitchen may take two weeks to a month since numerous features in the house need adjustment.
The timeframe for an existing property depends on how large your kitchen is and what type of remodeling project you’re taking on. A simple concept or quick renovation should take a few weeks, while a more extensive project takes no less than a month. Kitchen remodeling may be a bit of a hassle, but seeing the results and having a brand-new space is well worth the time and effort.
