When you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen, it is a big deal. This is part of your home that is more than likely used more than any other space. You will most definitely be asking how long the process is going to take at one point or another. It can be difficult with any construction project to give a definite amount of time that the project will take. However, when you know the kind of improvements you are wanting to make to your kitchen, it can help give you a better idea of what you’re looking at timewise. Straight Up Remodeling is here to talk about some of the different things that have an impact on how long your kitchen remodel will take.
Change Kitchen Layout
If you’re planning on changing the layout of your kitchen, you can count on the process taking a little bit longer than smaller scale remodels. This is possibly going to require moving plumbing, walls and other aspects of the space. You can usually plan on a big change to your kitchen layout taking 1-3 months to complete depending on the size of the changes you’re making. If you’re planning on adding custom cabinetry to that order, you need to account for the time to get that ordered and delivered as well.
Give Kitchen a Facelift
If the current layout of your kitchen makes sense and works for your family, you may decide you simply want to give your kitchen a facelift. This may include refacing your kitchen cabinets, changing the backsplash, updating the countertops and flooring. This will take less time than a complete layout change. You can still plan on this taking 1-2 months before it is completely finished.
Tips to Get You Through Your Kitchen Remodel
There are several things you can do to get you and your family through the kitchen remodeling process. Since the space may not be functional for part of the time, you may want to prepare some of your favorite meals and have them frozen so you can easily make them without the need for all the prep work. For a time, you will probably want to get disposable plates and utensils to get you through the remodel as well. There may be a time that you don’t have a kitchen sink and a dishwasher to help you get your dishes cleaned. You should also think about all of your favorite restaurants and get takeout menus for them. This can be a lifesaver when you are in the midst of a big kitchen remodel.
