A kitchen remodel is an important investment in your home. Some homeowners are hesitant to get started for various reasons, one of which might be that they aren’t quite sure what to expect during the renovation process.
While each project is different, the general process will be similar, so we’ve outlined the steps of a typical kitchen renovation.
Choosing a Contractor
Choosing the right contract is vital to getting the results you want, and it’s important to remember that all contractors are not the same. Here are some things to consider when choosing a kitchen remodeling company:
- Experience: Experience counts when deciding on a contractor for a kitchen update or any other type of home remodeling project.
- Reviews: See what past customers have said about the contractors you’re considering.
- BBB Rating: An A or A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau gives you confidence that you’re working with a trustworthy remodeler.
- Materials Used: Choose a contractor who uses premium materials from trusted brands.
Planning and Design
Your contractor will take measurements of your space, discuss your needs, and help you create a design that meets your needs and suits your style. Skilled contractors will be able to guide you through the process of selecting every detail of your new kitchen—including countertops, cabinetry, flooring, lighting, and more.
Many homeowners are intimidated by the prospect of designing a kitchen layout, but your contractor will also help you choose a floor plan that makes the best use of your space to provide maximum functionality.
Once plans are made, designs finalized, and materials are on hand, demolition can begin. Prior to this day, you’ll be asked to empty your kitchen cabinets and clear the countertops. Some homeowners box up the items and move them to another room in the home. If this isn’t an option due to space, consider renting a small on-site storage container where you can keep your kitchen items during the renovation.
Now comes the fun part! Once the demolition is complete, the kitchen remodeling contractors will begin the installation of your kitchen’s new features.
How Long Will It Take?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions, and there is no one-size-fits-all answer. The answer depends on the extent of the renovation, the size of the kitchen, and the skill of the contractors. Most kitchen renovations will be completed within one to three weeks.
