What to Expect During a Kitchen Remodel [Part 1]

A kitchen remodel can be one of the most exciting renovations a homeowner can experience. It can also be a significant investment in your home financially. You have the opportunity to finally get the layout, extra counter and cabinet space, and appliance updates you’ve dreamt about. As exciting as a kitchen remodel can be, there may be delays and hiccups in the plan. Hiring a design professional to guide you through the process and assist in making choices can help you use your budgeted funds more wisely and keep your project moving forward smoothly. If you are about to embark upon this journey, take a look at these roadblocks you may experience during your kitchen remodel.

Kitchen Remodel Timeline Expectations  

When it comes to establishing expectations for your kitchen remodel timeline, the most obvious factor is the size and scale of the project. Is your kitchen a small galley style in a cozy little cottage or is it an 800sq ft. room with dozens of cabinets, moldings and multiple finishes? How much detail are you looking for? Another question to ask is how long can you live without your kitchen? If there is a time you will be traveling and away from home for an extended period of time that may be the perfect opportunity!  These are all factors to consider before the project begins.

The other biggest factor in the timeline of a kitchen remodel is the homeowner. How do you and your family make decisions? When you see something you like are you ready to say yes or do you need to feel you’ve looked at every possible option before you can commit?

The elements of a successful kitchen remodel are the same whether the space is large or small, and the choices you make each step of the way dramatically impact the project’s timeline.

When working on kitchen projects with my clients, I always say to take your time to get what you really want! You are the one who will have to live with it for many years to come, and for the expense and disruption in your daily life that a kitchen remodel project causes, be sure it’s everything you want when you are done!
