Timeline For How Long a New Kitchen Takes to Install
In the United States the average kitchen take about 6-8 weeks to renovate, assuming that you work with a reliable contractor that has plenty of experience with construction, installation, and plumbing and electrical renovation.
If you’re going DIY or you’re using a cheaper, less experienced contractor, you can expect the timeframe of the kitchen remodeling project to be much longer.
Here are some general estimations for the timeline to expect:
- The average US kitchen renovation takes 6-8 weeks
- Larger or more complex kitchen remodels may take anywhere from 10-12 weeks
- Full, large kitchen remodeling projects will take longer, often between 3-5 months in total
The kitchen is a very complex part of your home – it requires extensive electrical wiring, plumbing, and appliances, sometimes involves a complex architecture design process as well as durable flooring, cabinets, countertops and much more.
The more of these design aspects you want to change, the more your kitchen renovation project will be dragged out and delayed, so you’ll have to find alternative food and cooking arrangements for longer remodels.
It can be stressful!
