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!

Every time you make food, you’re frustrated with running back and forth for ingredients, prep tools, with very little counter space. Making food becomes stressful and a not-so-fun experience. The kitchen should be the place where you can throw on some music, pull out your ingredients, and have plenty of space to prepare a gorgeous meal for family or friends. Doesn’t sound like you? It might be time to remodel.


The National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) compiled a list of questions for homeowners to ask themselves when considering a remodeling project.



1. Are you satisfied with the amount of space in your kitchen? That includes countertop, cabinet storage, and amount of floor space.

Did you know that small things such as the position of your fridge and the shape of your

counter could actually be taking away from your cooking ease? Remodeling creates more usable workspace, therefore less hair being pulled out from frustration.

2. Do you entertain? Do you usually have a so-called sous chef helping you?

If so, you may want to consider a more open floor plan for your kitchen, especially directing

traffic flow around the main workspace. This creates easy routes for entertaining and

cooking with more than one person in the kitchen. Jemson Cabinetry will help organize the

easiest flow of traffic when it comes to using your kitchen.

Do you have children? Are your appliances outdated?
Making sure your appliances are up-to-date is very important in the safety of your children.

Things like sharp corners on countertops and the overall outdated design of your kitchen can be hazardous to young children. Jemson Cabinetry will take this into account when creating a custom design just for you.

These are just a few of the questions you should consider. If you have said yes to any of these, Jemson Cabinetry can help ease your mind. Contact us today!
