Why Does it Take So Long?

The kitchen is one of the most intricate parts of a home. While some rooms might only involve heating, electricity, and walls, the kitchen involves much more. When it comes to the kitchen, you will need to consider heating, electrical, plumbing, cabinets, flooring, countertops, and appliances, and plan everything in a way that fits into your lifestyle. Additionally, if you tearing down anything from your old kitchen, that can take some time too.

Steps to Renovating

There are just a few steps that are involved in renovating a kitchen, however, these can take some time depending on how intricate the renovation job will be. Additionally, issues can arise that may lead to delaying your plans.

Kitchen Removal

The first step to renovating a kitchen is to tear it all down. The demolition phase includes removing cabinets, flooring, countertops, and appliances. Depending on how much you need to be taken down, it should take contractors only a couple of days to finish this step and get your kitchen ready for the new look.

Mark Everything

When remodeling a kitchen, it is important to know where everything is. Therefore, contractors will mark down electrical outlets, appliance power feeds, and anything that the electrician might need to know about.

Install Mechanicals

This step is when the contractors will install the HVAC, plumbing, and electrical. It should not take longer than a week to finish the installation, however, issues may arise and it can take a little longer. Usually, the plumbing and electrical take about two days, and HVAC takes a little longer.


Once demolition and mechanical installation are done, it is time to install the flooring. Usually, with this step, contractors will also install the insulation and drywall. Additionally, during this step contractors will prepare and prime the drywall for the next phase of the renovation. Your choice of flooring will be a deciding factor on how long this step will take. For example, ceramic tiles can take three to four days to get installed. Other flooring options might take fewer times, while others take longer to be installed.

Cabinets, Countertops & Finishing Touches.

This is the fun step of the process since it is when your vision will finally come to life. In this step, contractors will make sure to fit the cabinets evenly, to avoid any gaps and make sure they are the perfect fit.
