More often than not, one of the first few questions we are asked by homeowners looking to remodel their kitchen is “How long does it take?”. Given the vital functions of the kitchen in any household, it is understandable that they want to complete the projects as soon as possible and minimize the inconvenience.
However, most homeowners underestimate the time and complexity involved in a remodeling project. There are several steps involved in any remodeling project before construction can actually begin including defining a budget, selecting the designs & materials, ordering materials, finalizing drawings, obtaining permits, etc. Kitchen remodels are unique because they require a lot of moving parts and coordination of electricians, plumbers, and other subcontractors, some of whom must wait for the work of others to be completed (for example, cabinets before your sink) before they can proceed.
It is evident that the duration of the kitchen renovation project will depend on the scope of the project, the size of the kitchen, and the speed of decision-making. While every project and situation is unique, most remodeling projects take at least 3 – 6 months from start to completion. If there is a delay in securing required approvals or permits, this time might be longer.
It is therefore important that you are mentally prepared for the mentioned time-frame and keep the momentum going throughout the project to avoid frustration at a later stage.
