How Long Does a Kitchen Remodel Really Take?

By Jemson Cabinetry, Oct 4 2017 04:15PM

How long does a full kitchen remodel really take? Don’t be turned off by a kitchen remodel because of the assumption that your kitchen will be out of commission for months on end. Most commonly kitchen remodels last up to 1 to 1 ½ months. Now, this is depending the complexity of your remodel. Here is a basic timeline of what you can expect when you go to remodel your kitchen.



Design: 1-3 weeks

The first step to your kitchen remodel is designing the layout of your dreams. From the initial consultation to the final design, the process might take up to a month depending on many factors and your ability to make selections and decisions. This is where our expertise can help in making the design and selection process easy and fast.



Ordering Product: 4-6 Weeks

Every product is different. This step depends entirely on product availability and satisfaction once the material arrives. Once your order is placed, products will begin arriving with cabinetry generally taking 4 weeks from ordering.



Structural Changes: 1-2 Weeks

If your kitchen remodel includes structural changes, this might extend your timeline by a couple of weeks. Removing cabinetry, flooring and prepping for remodel might be done in as little as a day or two.



Rough-in Utilities: 1-3 days

If you are reconfiguring the layout of your kitchen, roughing in utilities for a sink, stove, refrigerator or other appliances might add an extra few days to your remodel timeline



Painting: 1-3 Days

This part of the process is simple. When paint is applied prior to any install, this step should only take a few days.



Cabinet Install: 3-5 Days

Depending on the size of your kitchen the time frame for a kitchen installation varies. Jemson Cabinetry’s installation team completes the process in about 3-5 days.



Countertop: 1-2 Weeks

Once cabinets are installed, your Jemson professional will come out and measure your countertop and create a “template” when required. Once the measurements are taken, your countertop will be fabricated and installed. This typically takes up to 10 days post measurements.



Finishing touches: 1-3 Days

Decorative accents, paint touch-ups and other finishing details most commonly may several days to complete.



After just 4-6 short weeks your kitchen is completely transformed into the room of your dreams. Ready to schedule your kitchen remodel? Contact us today!

My wife and I are wanting to remodel our kitchen starting next year, so we appreciate this guide to how long it'll take! I had no idea that ordering the products could take 4-6 weeks depending on the availability. We'll have to start finding materials to order soon so we can get started on this next month. Thanks for sharing! http://www.panoramamarco.com/node/16

Thanks for helping me learn more about kitchen remodels. I actually didn't know that roughing in utilities could add a few days, especially if you are re-configuring the layout. That being said, it's probably important that to know which utilities could take more time than others to incorporate. http://www.kitchensingeelong.com.au/services.html
