HOW TO TIME YOUR KITCHEN REMODEL

When you think about remodeling your kitchen, you want to know how long it’s going to take. Sometimes your remodel coincides with an event like a family reunion or wedding. You want to start with plenty of time to avoid a last-minute crunch. Even if you don’t have a big event looming, no one wants to live with construction dust any longer than they have to. Every kitchen is different, and the timeline depends on how extensive the job is. Complete the following steps before you start your remodel so you can finish by your target date.

SET YOUR GOALS AND YOUR BUDGET

Start by clarifying what you want to get out of the remodel. Will updated cabinets and countertops give you the look you want, or will you have to take out walls and start from scratch? If you could add features for both luxury and convenience, what would they be?

HIRE AN EXPERIENCED DESIGNER

The design phase is where you want to take as much time as you need. The right designer can save you both time and money. Use their expertise to choose the best materials, make the best use of your storage space and find experienced contractors. They can use 3D design software to show you what your ideas will look like before you begin. They can help you analyze the cost-versus-benefit of different materials and design options so you spend where you’ll get the most value. It’s also much easier to make changes now than it will be once the job begins.

ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME FOR MATERIALS

If you’re installing custom cabinets or specialty stone and tile, make sure you have plenty of time for it to get to your location, or it could slow down progress and drive up costs.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT CONTRACTOR

Hire a contractor who specializes in the kind of remodel you want. They’ll know how to obtain the necessary permits, help provide the measurements necessary for ordering materials, and see any structural issues that might slow things down.
