Time Frame for Renovation Depends On

Working With Designer

If you have hired a professional kitchen designer, then you need to give at least 6 to 8 weeks for the design to be completed. The time includes meeting time, taking the required measurements, and developing a draft plan prior to starting the work. Sit with the designer and make sure that you are happy before finalizing the designs. Before taking the measurements, all the appliances and cabinets should be locked in, so that the measurements are made correctly and the alignment is perfect.

Working on the Cabinets

If you want to order custom based cabinets, then you need to wait for about 4-12 weeks or the cabinets to be made. If imported material is required, then potentially you have to wait for few more days. If flat packed kitchen is your choice, then picking up the right combination of cabinets and having them delivered is the thing you have to take care of. There could be a difference between the custom and real cabinets that you have received and also do not expect the same quality as of the custom cabinetry.

Time for Prep Work

For the new cabinets to be installed, the old furniture needs to be removed. The work could take just a day. The prep work for the new installation can be started. The preparation work includes plumbing, electrical, and flooring works. The time frame for this work could be from days to weeks depending upon the significant structural changes that have to be made in the kitchen.

Actual Work of Installation

After the cabinets are delivered to your place, then the installation work is quick, assuming that no mistakes are made. But if are planning to install the cabinets on custom stone or engineered counter-tops, then a delay in the installation can take place. This is because the contractor needs to make the correct measurements and install the cabinets correctly so that you can use them for many years to come. The back-splash will also get ready in this time, and you need to wait for some more days to install tiles and glass.

Installation of New Appliances

The final step in the kitchen renovation is the installation of the appliances. The process is straightforward and quick but give at least 1 to 2 days for the completion of work. You should also figure out the way to dispose of the old appliances. Just take the help of dealers to make a deal or sell them online, or donate them or give them to a metal scrap dealer. The contractor hired for the work should also clean the old appliances as a part of the service.
