How To Prepare For A Kitchen Remodel Process

Let’s see 3 important steps that will make you ready to start your kitchen remodel.

1. Choose A Great Contractor

Do your due diligence and find a contractor that you can trust and can deliver on his promises. A simple Google search for “kitchen remodelers near me” will prompt you a few contractors that you can then research and choose.

By research we mean going through their social media, their website, even text them to see how they respond. Check their reviews (both positive and negative) and see how responsive the company is.

On top of all these, you’ll need to choose a professional that knows how to get the job done right from the first try. No one wants to call for a different professional to fix someone else’s mistakes.

2. Get Your Space Ready

In order to get your kitchen remodel started on the right foot, you need to make sure that the space is ready for it. This means clearing out any and all obstructions so that the contractor can work efficiently.

This might include moving furniture, appliances, or anything else in the way. Make sure to communicate with your contractor about what needs to be moved and when so that there is no confusion.

Not only does this make the project run smoothly, but it’ll also save your things from dust and any possible accidents.

3. Choose Your Style

Before starting your remodel, it’s important to decide on the style you want for your kitchen.

Do you want a modern look and make your kitchen feel futuristic and trendy?​
A rustic kitchen with wood features
Or a rustic one that makes your entire home feel cozy and welcoming.​

If you’re looking for something in between, you’re not short of options.​

Take some time to browse through kitchen design magazines or online galleries to get an idea of what you like. This will help your contractor better understand your style preferences and make sure that the remodel is executed as desired.

What To Expect From A Kitchen Remodel Process

Now that you know how to prepare for a kitchen remodel, it’s time to learn about what to expect from it. Keep in mind that every remodel is different, so these may not apply to every situation.

1. The Duration Of The Remodel

Most kitchen remodels take anywhere from 2-6 weeks, but it can vary depending on the size of your kitchen, the scope of work, and the upgrades you want to get. Ask your contractor for a detailed time frame to understand exactly what and when things will happen.

At Pellak Construction, we offer you a timeline with our schedule after the on-site visit. You’ll be let in on everything happening around the house, and you’ll get total guidance and help at all times during the project.

2. The Cost Of The Remodel

The cost of a kitchen renovation can vary greatly depending on the materials used and the size of your kitchen.

On average, expect to spend anywhere from $25,000-$55,000 on your kitchen remodel. Needless to say, this is just an average that many of our projects fall in. Yours can be much more affordable or more high-end if that’s what you’re going for.

For example, an undermount kitchen sink made of quartz, custom cabinets, new appliances, and new tile flooring will increase the total cost of your kitchen renovation. If you want to save money, smaller renovations can take just a few weeks and are much more affordable.

3. The Building Phase

A kitchen remodel is a big project and it can sometimes create small inconveniences in your home until it’s completed. This means noise, dust in the air, and debris on the work site.

At Pellak Construction, we’re doing anything in our power to keep your house clean and everyone in your family safe. We’re cleaning the workspace after every day of work, and we’re trying to make as little noise as possible.

However, it’s important to remember that your kitchen will become a work site and it won’t work at its full capacity until we’re through with it. While we are making the building phase a lot easier to go through, you’ll need to be prepared for anything that comes with a remodel.

What You Could Use During The Building Phase

During the construction process, consider making a temporary kitchen. Nothing compares to a home cooked meal, so this would be a good enough room to prepare meals during the entire process.
