Kitchen Remodeling FAQ
Q: How long does a kitchen remodel take?
If you’re only replacing the appliances, fixtures, and finishes, a kitchen remodel may take two to three weeks. However, if you’re changing the kitchen layout, your project will involve installing new plumbing, electrical, and gas services. In this case, the renovation could take three to five months.

Kitchen remodels are unique because they require a great deal of coordination between electricians, plumbers, carpenters, and other subcontractors. For instance, the sink installer must wait for the countertops to go in, and the countertops can’t be done until the cabinets are installed. That’s why it’s important to work with a professional kitchen remodeler who can coordinate everything effectively, keeping the project on time and within budget.
Q: Can I use my kitchen during a remodel?
This depends on the extent of your renovation. If you’re making relatively minor changes, you might be able to work around them. However, in most cases, your kitchen will be out of commission for at least a few weeks.
Rather than eating out every night, you can save money by setting up a temporary kitchen in another room with a sink, such as a garage, basement, or utility room. Set up folding tables for small appliances and to use as a work surface. If you have a barbecue, use it to prepare meals during your kitchen remodel. Otherwise, a camping stove is a great choice. You may also want to invest in a minifridge for your temporary kitchen, where you can store perishables and leftovers.
