We get a steady stream of questions about kitchen remodeling. Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions:
How long does it take to remodel a kitchen?
It really depends on the scope of the project, but generally, if you’re just wanting to replace flooring and cabinets, you’re looking at about 6-8 weeks. If you plan to remodel the whole kitchen-- remove walls or change the floorplan, etc.-- this takes about 10-12 weeks on average.
How do I prepare for a kitchen remodel?
Determining what you want the look and feel of your new kitchen to be is a good place to start. If you need some help figuring this out, consider watching some home renovation shows like Fixer Upper, Extreme Makeover, or My Houzz on YouTube. Websites like Houzz or Pinterest are another great way to put together an ideabook of how you want your future kitchen to look. Once construction is ready to begin, make sure that all your personal belongings have been removed from the space.
Where should I expect the majority of my budget to be spent?
Generally speaking, people spend the most on cabinetry (about 29% of the overall budget), followed by appliances (14%), and countertops (10%). You can learn more about kitchen remodeling costs and the budget breakdown here.
How will a kitchen remodel affect the value of my home?
For a high-end kitchen remodel, the national average ROI is close to 54%. For a more modest kitchen remodel, you’re looking at a national average ROI of 81%. As you can see, a kitchen remodel greatly increases the value of your home.
