Kitchen Remodeling: How Much and How Long?

Kitchen remodeling has become a popular pastime for those who enjoy watching renovation shows on television.  The problem is that many of these shows simply do not give you the whole story about the cost and time necessary to do a good kitchen renovation.  In fact, it is very possible that these shows may mislead homeowners by making them think that the process is easier and cheaper than it actually is, leading to frustration and unmet expectations later.

If you are planning a kitchen remodel job, it is important to have realistic expectations and clear communication with your contractor to avoid misunderstandings.  At R and R Kitchens, located on the web at, we keep our clients fully informed through all stages of the remodeling process.  We have found that when we make timelines and costs clear, there are far fewer problems later!  Furthermore, we have found that clients who understand the costs and time commitment up front simply make better renovation choices because they have all the facts.

How Long With This Take?

At R and R Kitchens, we have created an FAQ page located at to answer most common questions.  However, we cannot answer on that page one of the most common questions we hear:  how long with this process take?

It is impossible to make an estimate of how long a kitchen renovation will take without seeing the unique factors that surround a particular kitchen renovation.  In order to do this, our experts must perform an inspection on site and take down some basic information.  Very generally speaking, a custom kitchen remodel will last anywhere from eight to 12 weeks, although these estimates can vary greatly depending on the scope of the work.

In some cases, we give you an “either-or” time estimate:  either we can finish in eight weeks by doing certain designated jobs, or we can finish in 12 weeks by adding other jobs.  We try to give you as much flexibility as possible in any renovation planning.

How Much Will This Cost?

The partner to the “how long does it take” question is the “how much will it cost” question.  The same rules apply to this question:  it is impossible to say without making a thorough inspection and working up a cost estimate for the projected job.  It is also important to remember that while we make every effort to stay within budget, unexpected expenses may arise and raise the cost as well as increase the time needed to complete any job.

What you can be sure of is that R and R Kitchens will always give you the fastest and most cost-effective service available!
