How Long Does A Kitchen Remodel Take?

How Long Does A Kitchen Remodel Take?

November 8, 2022

The amount of time it takes to complete your kitchen remodel can typically be anywhere from 6-8 or 10-12 weeks. And larger, complete kitchen remodels may take up to 3-5 months. These time frames depend largely on factors like kitchen size, material availability, and even the contractor you decide to hire for the job. 

Kitchen And Project Size

The time frame of your kitchen remodel will depend largely on the size of your kitchen. Smaller kitchens typically take a little less than a month to complete. However, kitchens with substantial area or in-depth designs can last from one month or two, or even longer. 

This is why it is important to not only calculate the space of your kitchen but also the extent of your new design. Allow yourself enough time to get what you wish done and at the speed you wish it to be completed. 

Material Ordering And Installation Time

Supply chains can sometimes experience shortages and kinks in delivery or availability. You may find yourself waiting weeks or even months for the desired materials such as countertops, appliances, or flooring. 

Aside from receiving the materials needed for your remodel, you also will want to factor in the amount of time it will take to install those materials or items. Some materials or appliances may require specific processes for proper installation which could mean more time. So, be patient and be aware.

Your Kitchen’s Current State

Depending on your kitchen’s current state, you may experience a shorter or longer remodel time. If you are planning on keeping any of the old countertops or cabinets, you can expect your renovation time to be shortened. 

The removal of walls or avoiding and working around things like plumbing and electrical may, however, slow the process. Not only does the construction of this type require careful installation but there are also local building codes that may have to be checked, too. 

The Contractor You Choose

No matter what the job, who you choose to get it done can be a big contributor to the time it can take to actually complete the project. Those with little experience or industry training will most likely perform at a slower pace than someone more experienced. 

Mistakes that were made throughout the renovation could also be a contributing time factor. So, again, the less experienced someone is with an industry such as remodels and renovations, the more mistakes they are likely to make. Your ultimate goal is to have it done right the first time around, so invest the time to find the right contractor for the job.
