Understanding timelines is a two-way street when you work with a kitchen designer. You may have scheduling deadlines of your own, but you’ll also need to consider the schedules of the installers and other contractors. For instance, October is too late to start a special order kitchen remodel that you want in time for Thanksgiving.
After the initial cabinet dealer consultation, design development can typically take two to three weeks before an initial room layout is presented. The products you choose may also impact the total project timeline. Wood floors, for instance, need an acclimation period of several days prior to cabinet installation.
Identify a completion date, then add two weeks as a cushion for unforeseen hiccups that always happen in a project. Your designer can recommend a schedule that is workable for everyone involved.
