For many homeowners, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where you

reconnect with others, all while enjoying good food. Your kitchen must reflect your style and be an area that is both inviting and appealing. If you’re considering a kitchen remodel, you might have some questions.

The process of remodeling a kitchen involves a lot of factors and a lot of possible timelines, depending on the size and scope of your project. Whether you’re just beginning to consider a kitchen remodel or want to get started on your project as soon as possible, Bud Matthews Services has the answers you need on how to get the kitchen of your dreams.

Average Timeframe for a Kitchen Remodel

Just as every homeowner is different, every kitchen remodel is different. This is why it can be challenging to provide an exact timeline for a kitchen remodel. Some remodels are complete overhauls requiring thorough demolition beforehand, with new appliances, countertops, and cabinetry, while others are smaller projects involving little more than a fresh coat of paint and some new knobs on your kitchen cabinets.

In general, planning for 6 – 8 weeks for a kitchen remodel is a good estimate. If your kitchen is on the larger side, or if you want a custom kitchen, your remodel project will likely be longer, around 10 – 12 weeks on average. 

At Bud Matthews Services, we have the experience necessary to provide you with a stunning kitchen while managing every aspect of the project, from planning to countertop installation and demolition. 

We create timeless designs, incorporating elements like kitchen islands, overhead lighting, double ovens, and backsplashes to give you the luxe space you always wanted.

Factors That Affect a Kitchen’s Remodeling Time

Several factors can affect how long it takes to remodel a kitchen. A few of these include:

  • The size of the kitchen itself
  • Delays in appliances or parts arriving
  • Structural concerns
  • Uncertainty surrounding design, color, or appliance style

In general, being prepared can help your kitchen remodeling project go smoothly. It can also help to go in with an open mind, understanding that delays and issues can occur in the most impeccably-planned projects. Don’t stress over things you can’t control, and know that the results will be worth the wait. Working with an expert kitchen remodeling company also ensures that your project will go without a hitch.
